Gender Studies 101: Academic Probation

University student Robin Green is in trouble. It is way too late in the semester and he’s missed far too many days for him to pass Professor Erde’s class. He comes to her asking for any way to make it up and she presents him with a deal: be a guinea pig for a procedure that will make him, for all intents and purposes save one, a woman, and she’ll pass him. Seeing his academic future on the line, Rob agrees.

The change is well underway when Rob meets Amelia, Professor Erde’s assistant and another test subject. She had gotten something of the exact opposite of Rob’s treatment, and now she needs some help learning to use her new equipment from someone who knows how to handle one already. So Rob helps Amelia, and in return Amelia returns the favor. Everyone wins, right?

“See? That wasn’t so bad.”

Erde set the syringe on the counter and started to pull off her gloves. Robin held the little cotton swab over the injection point and kept the pressure on. This had been his sixth treatment in three days. They weren’t a problem; he’d never been bothered by needles. The changes his body was undergoing with alarming rapidity were what was disconcerting.

He had actually lost a couple of inches of height and was rapidly shedding weight. His arms felt weak and his sense of balance was constantly off. The clothes he’d brought weren’t fitting anymore. Erde and her team knew all this, of course. they’d been tracking his body down to the minutest detail since his arrival.

The professor sat in the lone chair and pulled out a notebook. She gave Robin a discerning look. “So,” she asked, “how have you been feeling?”

“A little shaky,” Robin said, “and cold.”

She nodded. “That’s the loss of body mass. You’ll acclimate eventually.”

Robin rolled his eyes then frowned. “I meant to ask you, this has been OK over the weekend, but what do I do tomorrow when classes start up again?”

“What do you mean?”

“Well, am I suppose to go out like this?” He indicated his body with his hands.

“I don’t see why not.”

Robin felt his mouth fall open. “But, people are going to see me.”

“So?” Erde shrugged. “What do you care if they see you like this?”

“People are bound to be confused.”

Now it was her turn to roll her eyes. “What you do with your body is none of their business, and since skipping class is what got you into this mess, I suggest you keep attending. Now,” she said sharply, “I’d like to take a look at how we are progressing. Strip.”

He hesitated. Professor Erde was a medical doctor, and this was all her work, so it probably shouldn’t have seemed weird to get naked around her, but it still did. Nonetheless, he hopped off the examination table and started to pull off his clothes. It felt very cold in here, and he could feel goosebumps starting to prick out on his skin.

Erde made a thoughtful little noise as he stood up straight before her. “You’re developing very rapidly,” she said. “Have you noticed any soreness.”

Robin nodded. “Yes, in my chest.”

Rising from the chair, the tall woman stepped closer to inspect him. “That is to be expected.” She leaned in and peered at the little lumps under Robin’s nipples, which stood out against the chill. “You’ll probably continue to experience some while your breasts come in fully. I’ll have one of my assistants get you some cream that may help with the tenderness. Has your penis continued to function as normal?”

Feeling a little blindsided by that last question, Robin stammered then finally nodded.

“Are you continuing to masturbate as normal?”

Robin could only stand there with his mouth open, aghast at her.

“It’s a perfectly normal behavior, Rob. I need to know if your sex drive is being affected by all the hormonal changes.”
