Well your friend is not exactly wrong.

Phytoestrogens are chemical compounds found in plants that are so similar to estrogen; from a molecular structure point of view; that they can have similar effects.

While they are present in beer, they are also in tons of other foods. Soy, oats, nuts, seeds...

One thing you can always count on in a forum: someone WILL inevitably come out with some incredibly skewed stretch of some fragment of fact to correct you... All the while ignoring the actual point of what you even said. Ex: some idiot told me "homebrew has estrogen, unlike his BMC"
Clears throat gets on soap box -well technically there is a plant form of something similar to estrogen in all beers that acts kind of like estrogen blah blah,

ohhhhh now I see. The guy who made the estrogen statement isn't just insecure and overly compensating, he is a closet genius clearly referring to phytoestrogens...

Can't wait till you ask him and you come back to tell us he gave you the breakdown of how phytoestrogens act on the molecular level

What if I need the surgery to be true to myself?

Start the hormone pills first and see how you feel.

Apparently I already have. And I feel great after a few.

EDIT: Darn, Maurader beat me to it. Ah, HBT. The only place online I can learn to make great beer whilst getting sound medical advice on transgender issues.
