Does Soy Make You More Feminine?

9 posts in this topic

I know this has probably been asked before, but I'm vegan, so I use soy as a milk substitute, but I dont wanna be even more feminine. Now, I could just as easily use almond, hemp, or rice milk, but soy tends to taste better. I'll switch to one of those if it is feminizing.

As far as I know this is a myth because of a few studies done on infertile men and rodents. More information can be found here (with some journal references if you're particularly interested): http://www.soyconference.com/magazines/jun10.pdf

I'm vegan as well.

The amount of phytoestrogen in soy products is completely negligible to the feminizing process, and, in high consumption can actually lead to health problems (a higher risk for breast cancer, I believe.) However, the phytoestrogen in soy also tends to actually replace that of naturally occurring human estrogen, which could potentially (over a long period of time) decrease the amount of estrogen your body makes. This isn't a good thing though. The phytoestrogen also has a nasty habit of increasing the cell turnover rate in your bones, which is, um, not exactly what you want (IE, it weakens your bones.) And I don't think you want weak bones.

So, anyway, Soy won't make you anymore feminine and should be eaten in moderation; it isn't anywhere as healthy as we were once lead to believe. Heck, even in Asian cultures it is only eaten (primarily) as a condiment.

Cheers.

Nawww....

Don't worry about it

We've had a number of MTF's ask about this same thing with soy and someone would have to drink hundreds of glasses of it a day to start seeing any real effects...

And, who can do that?.....lol

No - maybe a million gallons a year or something - but that would also probably kill you. Soy does not contain estrogen, just a similar component. If Soy worked as an estrogen source, no one here that is MTF would be on HRT.

Don't worry about a thing hon :)

Diet will not ever make one more feminine or more masculine... OK?

Eat healthy :)

Wow, thanks for all of the info everyone has given on this thread.

I'm lactose intolerant so any bad effects of soy is pretty disconcerting to me. Fortunately, I hate the taste of any milk substitute and only drink it when I REALLY REALLY want some cereal.

I'm vegetarian but I tried out soy milk for a bit. I disliked the taste unless it had chocolate in it. :P I still drink it plain occasionally, when I forget how awful it tastes!

Whew, ok thanks. I dont actually drink it that much... mostly just in cereal, or, say, if I wanted to make vegan brownies or something. But, if it had had any feminizing effects AT ALL, I would have stopped drinking it completely.
