Actually, it isn't that easy for a female-to-male TS. The path
to full transition and reasonably full functioning in the new
role is longer and more expensive than for male-to-females. The
one nice advantage they have is that testerone drops their voice
through the floor pretty quickly where estrogen does not raise
the voice going the other way.

It would be really great if folks needing or even wishing to
change could simply switch bodies. Some day.
