Have you actually met anyone who is trans and actually talked to them about their life?

I think it would change your perspective.


That depends. Would this hypothetical person consider their life more than the sum of their physical parts?

You are completely ignorant of the process involved for a person to transition. It is not like they see a specialist once are automatically handed hormones/blockers.

It takes many counseling sessions, many doctors appointments before hormone therapy is considered(though many choose the DIY option through black market suppliers).

You bring up an isolated case of someone who regrets transitioning while ignoring the thousands plus who are happy with their decision.

The biggest regret from most is they did not start at a younger age.


And you ignore the Trans people that bully the Trans people that share their regret.

Trans Industry? You really believe there is such a thing?

It is you who refuses to see the big picture here, I can see the full spectrum here while you only see black and white.

Doctors do not just hand out hormone blockers to anyone who wants them, there is psychiatric counseling and a diagnosis that justifies the treatment.

You make it sound like being trans is the new ADHD, where the makes of Ritalin and adderal(aka kiddie meth) literally bribed doctors to make a diagnosis to boost sales.

The irony here is palpable.

So it's just more gaslighting. Make a false claim, be given the correct information, ignore the correct information, then change the goalposts.

Anyone and everyone can look up "gender affirmation" treatment and "self-ID" and find out for themselves. Anyone and everyone can read the many many trans regret testimonials on the internet and find out for themselves. Anyone and everyone can do their own due diligence.

That is exactly what you are doing here.

What is up with your obsession with transsexuals? You clearly devoted a lot of time to this thread and your OP.

Gender identity begins in infancy somewhere around the age of 7 months. It usually occurs very naturally as parents, siblings, and others interact with them.

For some reason, something is happening in those early stages to confuse or misidentify. It is happening today much more than in the past. Something has become "glitchy" during this critical stage of gender identification.

Parents and caregivers are being programmed, imo, to think that it is okay to allow a child to misidentify and continue with his/her confusion.

Parents have been told by so-called "experts" to allow a child to choose his/her own gender. So, this allows the misidentification by the baby/toddler to be perpetuated rather than properly and consistently corrected.

Some very weird agenda going on here. Who really are these "experts" other than their academic credentials?

If half the doctors perpetually hand out ritalin on a mere whim then what wouldnt they do?

Something I saw around here yesterday said somewhere in in the UK theres over 800 kids under 10 on hormone blockers (or whatever).

The pattern emerges. When you run out of talking points, you all ask why we're obsessed.

When there's a mass movement targeting the youth of a nation, even just on mere ideological grounds alone, there SHOULD be major interest and criticism of it.

I dont even have kids, but you come messing with kids and you fuct up.

The same chemicals the frogs are ingesting and changing gender is being ingested by pregnant women.

Maybe Alex Jones had the beginnings of something there.

I made my concerns very clear in the OP. In detail. With appropriate citations. It's exactly that empathy that we've been told to have for others who are suffering and in need of help. Especially children, whom we recognize as being at a disadvantage and therefore vulnerable to exploitation and abuse due to their lack of reasoning skills, experience and judgment. We understand that there are unscrupulous and evil people who exploit the weak for their own profit and gain, and as individuals and as a society, we have accepted the responsibility to look out for the weaker and vulnerable in society.

That includes transgender kids who are being permanently harmed in both intended and unintended ways.

Since you have no such concerns, what is YOUR OBSESSION with propping up the Trans Activists at the expense of kids???

You are against the ban of conversion therapy, something that has been proven to increase the suicide rate of LBGT youth.

That and the fact most of your sources are from far right leaning sources.

Transgender people, especially youth need to know they are not alone and there are options.

Yes, there are people who regret their decision to transition but that figure is dwarfed by many who are happy with their decision.

I know 3 women who have had the full surgery and they are happy with their life.

I think you are mistaking discussion and interest in the subject as somehow being "against" transgender people.

What does left-right paradigms have to do with it?

I generally find that when someone resorts to that kind of argument (left vs right) in matters other than political, it is in order to stop any discussion. Right-leaning or left-leaning has nothing to do with the exploration and evaluation of the overall subject.

Right usually likes to evaluate, rationalize, examine concepts and pull back multiple layers.
Left usually shoots from the hip out of reactionary emotions, and if it goes against their preconceived notion of how the world must look, screaming and insults ensue.

I don't think any poster discussing this topic believes transgenders should be made to feel they are alone. If a gender dysphoric person has gotten to the stage of deciding they must transition to feel okay, then it is their decision AS AN ADULT to go forward.

Happiness and well-being is the goal for us all, isn't it?

That is a hasty generalization of left vs right thinking. It is also completely false, by your definition Trump is most certainly on the left.

Some of the sources such as the Federalist are very right biased and unfortunately the far right are very much against LGBT rights.

I sure am! I am equally against any forced conversion therapy. I am against any and all such criminalizations of a persons free will and autonomy.


... something that has been proven to increase the suicide rate of LBGT youth.


There is a right way and a wrong way to do anything and everything. The best and appropriate response in any situation will not be the best and appropriate response in all situations.

One-size-fits-all never fits all.

When one side is pushing for a one sized fits all against the nature of the 99.3% of kids, what reaction would you expect? Pushing it like that played right into their hands and as such I've written at length of how the Democrat's pushing it like this (Obama in particular) have literally thrown the trans people under the bus by pitting them against society like this (all for sowing division / population control / diversion / endless demagogue fodder against the inherent opposition it was to predictably rally).

Forced upon children? Disgusting.

far right


....or far left. Neither is good for a healthy discussion.

Society is putting too much focus on LGBTQXYZ issues of late. It never hurts to observe, evaluate, examine, and ask questions. Societal trends, problems, collapse, and issues of all kinds belong to ALL of us. We have a right to ask why certain things are being pushed and agendized.

Asking a child today, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" takes on whole new meaning, eh?

I keep thinking what wonders we might behold if we simply encouraged our kids to express the best of themselves in the best ways with no regard for "gender"... no expectations... no demands... just unconditional love and faith in their inherent potential....
