It's not a bad thing of itself. But if you find TGNC with gender dysphoria, then the dysphoria is very likely to be consistent over time, and you would look at treatments building up to and including non-reversible treatments.

Well the other way around. The consistent dysphoria is evidence of TGNC, rather than psychiatric illness.

But you can certainly get TGNC without gender dysphoria, and that is not a bad thing.

^ Thats what you said

That's right. Meaning legally.

Furthermore, it's hilarious that you insist that a 15 year old cannot consent to having sex, but can consent to having gender reassignment surgery.

What the fuck are you taking about?

Don't be an idiot of course they can.

But legally.

The law recognizes this when the other person is under 18. A 15 year old having sex with a 17 year old isn't rape unless its actually coerced...because they CAN consent.

Depends where you are. But the reason it's statuary rape, is not because they didn't want to consent, it's because the law doesn't recognise that consent.

Some places have Romeo and Juliette laws that make it a lesser crime if they're a similar age.

Some don't.

There is just a magical point at which the other person becomes a certain age and they lose this ability... allegedly.

Sexual development involves mucking about with other kids your own age. It's a journey of discovery. Cutting the corners by being exploited by someone who already knows how it goes when you should be playing does permanent damage to your development because you can't go back and do it right.

You don't need to treat trans or nonconforming gender.

But they are a possible diagnosis if a patient presents with gender dysphoria. Which should be treated. To the extent that it can. For the reason you point out. It is distressing and is the cause of psychiatric illness and suicidal ideation.

Because female puberty does nothing fundamental

Girls change shape a lot. They get wide hips. They stop growing upwards as much.

They also grow boobs and get periods.

But I take your point that men get facial hair and hair on their limbs and their voice breaks on top of similar magnitude shape changes.

And testosterone makes them die in car crashes 5 times as much. FtM transexuals on testosterone complain that they want to go to the pub and start fights all the time.

The law is generally right about consent and minors, i think. They need to be kids, whether or not they think they want to be adults. It's up to adults not to take that from them.

It helps if you pass. That means controlling estrogens and androgens while going through puberty, so it's difficult to retrofit.

But people do the best they can. If you live around people like the ones on saidit, they will present problems that maybe you don't want to deal with. But many places most people will get the idea.

I won't break someone's denial if it's holding them back from crisis, but in my case I just can't buy lies like that. Treatment can maybe make you pass if you're FtM.

Does timeliness make any difference if you're MtF?

Because if you get in before puberty, most people would say you'd at least pass better. You know. Because the shape of the hips, the shape of the shoulders, the density of facial hair, the changes to the voice, the difference in adult height. These are the things that get in the way of passing. And they predominantly differentiate between the sexes during puberty.

If you're going to treat something, you need a diagnosis. Amongst your differential diagnosis would be Trans or Gender Non-Conforming, and psychiatric illness, if the symptoms are reporting thoughts or feelings of gender incongruity.

The treatments are quite different, so an accurate diagnosis is much better.

So where do you think we came from?

When a mummy vulptex and a daddy vulptex love each other very much, and they give each other a special hug, 9 months later, mummy vulptex gives birth to a new baby vulptex.

NDEs all line up to tell the exact same story.

You often get a light-and-tunnel thing, but we're getting an acceptable neurological understanding of that now. But what you see at the end of the tunnel is completely culturally derived, as is how you go through it, and how you get sent back.

They also remember past lives, and their information is accurate.

I find that difficult to believe.

And sometimes multiple people are involved, and they also notice other subtle differences about the world afterward, together.

And that.

Even weirder is when their minds fail to pause for some reason and they're able to watch the matrix flip through every possible outcome until it finds one where they survived.

Right. But that was the infinity war and dr. strange. Which is fiction.

I know many people hurt by the vaccines.

So all you need to do is answer these questions

1) How many?
2) How confidently can you attribute their hurt to "the vaccines"?
3) How many people do you know that weren't hurt by "the vaccines"?
4) How many people do you know that weren't hurt by infections because they were vaccinated?

And your anecdote is still much more crap than a proper trial, because "people you know" isn't a random sample, and so may be biased by some confounding factor.

Go fuck yourself.

The studies on transition regret don't include detransitioners because they ask for people who currently identify as trans, which detransitioners don't.

So if I find a paper looking at transition regret that includes detransitioners, will you accept that you're mistaken about that and change your position?

Puberty blockers stunt brain growth to the extent that they have been linked to drops in IQ points and immature, childish behaviour that these trans kids don't grow out of.

I haven't read a paper that links puberty blockers to drop in IQ nor "childish behaviours". Can you link me to one?

I found one that finds the opposite:

The association between IQ pre-treatment and educational achievement post-treatment in transgender adolescents who received gender-affirming medical treatment including puberty suppression appears to be similar to the general population. This may reflect that gender-affirming medical treatment including puberty suppression does not negatively affect the association between IQ and educational achievement. - Association between pre-treatment IQ and educational achievement after gender-affirming treatment including puberty suppression in transgender adolescents, Arnoldussen et al.

The film “Died Suddenly” rehashes debunked claims and conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 vaccines

DETAILS
Inadequate support: Without a pathological analysis that takes into account the clinical history of the person, images of blood clots alone don’t provide sufficient evidence of an association between these clots and COVID-19 vaccines. No evidence suggests that vaccines are causing a rise in mortality. Therefore, claims that they are used for depopulation are baseless.
Misleading: Many of the people that the film implied to have died after vaccination are actually alive. Others died of causes unrelated to vaccination, such as accidents and underlying medical conditions.

KEY TAKE AWAY
Data from vaccine safety monitoring programs indicate that COVID-19 vaccines are safe and not associated with any increase in mortality or sudden deaths. While certain COVID-19 vaccines have been associated with a slightly increased risk of blood clotting and heart inflammation, these conditions are more likely to result from COVID-19 itself than from vaccination.

The mRNA drugs are not vaccines.

No, they're vaccines.

They are called that because the regulatory bodies have been corrupted by the pharmacutical corporations, particularly Pfizer.

No, they're called that because they stimulate a response in the immune system for a particular disease, so that it mounts a rapid and robust response to the actual disease.

Those drugs have not been approved by the FDA.

The vaccines have. https://www.fda.gov/emergency-preparedness-and-response/coronavirus-disease-2019-covid-19/covid-19-vaccines

To this day they are being administered under emergency use authorization

Only for very loose meanings of "this day". First one approved was Comirnaty back in August 23, 2021:

https://www.fda.gov/news-events/press-announcements/fda-approves-first-covid-19-vaccine

Most people would call that "to 466 days ago".

Completely aside from that, Pfizer has previously falsified trial data, and the only data being considered by the corrupt FDA is that which Pfizer is providing.

But they didn't do the study, they're just reporting on it.

Quite right. If you're a opinion polling company run by a political consultant for the republican party, you can construct a survey in a way that it looks like most people support your transphobic agenda.

"Some stud- ies reported that initial QoL improvements post gender-affirm- ing surgery were not always enduring," although that doesn't seem to impact the conclusion.

That's right. Some did. The conclusion is based on the results from all the studies.

Each of those 53 articles, only half were even considered high quality btw, would have to be examined.

Go ahead. Table 2 summaries the nature and findings of each of them.

That's because this meta-analysis did examine them all.

That's got to give more sound conclusions that your "It doesn't make any sense" reasoning. If the facts disagree with what you feel makes sense, it's not the facts that are wrong.

Yes, guns only go the one way now. There's no reason weapons we exported can't be illegally smuggled back in if there was a need.

Yes there is. No other country has such crap gun control.

I know two irl. That doesn't seem particularly uncommon.

Nevertheless not counting the group we're talking about is because they're few is not useful to the discussion: People who seek gender confirming treatment are those people that don't fit your claim "There isn't a correct or incorrect gender, you're just born to one and that's it. We don't get a say in it."

Intersex doesn't have much to do with trannies

They make up a significant amount of those people seeking gender affirming surgery. I bring them up because they demonstrate clearly that your claim "There isn't a correct or incorrect gender, you're just born to one and that's it. We don't get a say in it." is wrong.

About 1.7% of the population have some physical intersex characteristics. The vast majority of those are late onset congenital adrenal hyperplasia. Who are born with determinable genitalia, but they develop abnormally. But it's not as rare as you might think. Perhaps the people that you know haven't brought it up with you.

The drug is experimental.

What drug? Are we not talking about vaccines?

But I would not consider everyone part of an experiment because the results are being supressed and destroyed at every opportunity.

The vaccines went through three phases of trials, just like every other medicine approved by the FDA.

The reason for all the deaths being recorded as unknown cause is to purposefully obfuscate the deadly side effects.

What deaths have been recorded as unknown cause?

The CDC data for 2021 doesn't have deaths by unknown cause. Are you talking about some European country?

We couldn't as heavily regulate guns here if we couldn't stop them from coming across the border as with drugs.

Guns go the other way. They're bought in America because of the unconscionably lax laws surrounding their sale, and smuggled over the border from there to be used in murder and defence of drug cartels.

It is so rare as not to bear consideration and irrelevant to the point at hand.

Transgender people aren't common either. Those are the people we're talking about. The people who aren't "just born to one [gender] and that's it."

"Oh we can ignore them because they're rare" is fucking stupid this far into a discussion of trans gender people. Yes they're rare. But we're discussing them in particular.

It doesn't make any sense

There are experts in this field. I'm not interested in what you personally feel makes sense.

and the only evidence saying transitioning works is highly suspect for being ideologically morivated and based on self-reported surveys

Here's a meta analysis looking at 53 different studies. The results are mixed, but it's clear that positive results outweigh negative ones.

It is not acceptable to replace the risk of suicidal thoughts with actual risk of physical illness and/or the possibility of inability to later reproduce.

Let the patient decide that.

According to some studies fully backed by trans lobbies, I'm sure.

That is the evidence we have. What evidence do you have for claiming they don't?

If a person is experiencing depression from hormones.and you block the hormones, it doesn't mean that it has been successful.

Read the paper. Hormone and other other types of gender-affirming care were controlled for.

After adjustment for sociodemographic factors and exposure to other types of gender-affirming care, undergoing 1 or more types of gender-affirming surgery was associated with lower past-month psychological distress (adjusted odds ratio [aOR], 0.58; 95% CI, 0.50-0.67; P < .001), past-year smoking (aOR, 0.65; 95% CI, 0.57-0.75; P < .001), and past-year suicidal ideation (aOR, 0.56; 95% CI, 0.50-0.64; P < .001).

Millions of men and women have hormone changes in later life, it doesn't mean they are all trans.

True. Also irrelevant.

Tavistock was a specialised clinic, it's not like they were busy with A&E patients turning up drunk on Wednesday night after fighting over a food all match result.

It was reported, based on the interim Cass review, that Tavisok Clinic was "under unsustainable pressure as the demand for the service outstrips capacity ..."

Do you know this to be wrong based on your own research?

The EU is busy punishing the UK by applying more.red tape to our trade than they apply to Venezuela.

And the UK is busy unilaterally ignoring the Northern Ireland Protocol, and watching the Tories go through the fourth prime minister in the five years since May was elected on the platform of providing a "strong and stable" government.

The entire world outside of California is not conservative.

This is strictly only a California effect? Could I look at your data?

Also correct, this example is sufficient because Tavistock was a government run, medical institution, of a specialist nature with reports of nutjob pushy parents, so yes, it literally covered all bases.

Okay. You've got one example for your claim "This has literally been the push from governments, medical institutions, specialists, activist groups and woke parents who wish they had a girl instead of a boy."

You shouldn't really use plurals. And I question whether they are genuinely interested in sterilization.

I'm against that, because I'm against surgeries for children, and in the general case, against cross-sex hormones. As I would think most people would be: And that is why doctors use puberty blockers. So that the decision can be delayed until the patient reaches their majority. Partly so they're mature enough to make a competent call, but importantly to ensure that the gender dysphoria is consistent before entering the irreversible part of the treatment.

If you're "CatholicVote" you can construct a survey in a way that it looks like most people support your anti-trans agenda.

There isn't a correct or incorrect gender, you're just born to one and that's it. We don't get a say in it.

You're saying among other things, that intersex individuals don't occur in nature? Or just not in humans?

Surgery doesn't fix dysphoria.

Okay.

I believe that it reduces dysphoria in most cases and completely resolves it in some. (Here surgery means transitioning including surgery. Also hormone therapy and living as the new gender).

What's your best evidence that it doesn't?

That's certainly the most respectful thing that we can do as non-specialists. And that is important for the well-being of trans people.

But a clinician making a diagnosis of Trans or Gender Non-Conforming would look for consistency over time, as intermittent thoughts or feelings of gender incongruity is symptomatic of delusions or unstable personality characteristics. Gender dysphoria as a consistent condition over time rules out psychiatric illness. Which may be the case with Aldrich, but nothing I'm aware of is inconsistent with him being male until the documents filed by his lawyers for this case.

Not that I would be aware, but there's been some reporting of interviews with his family and friends.

Given how ideologically captured the field of trans medicine is, and that there are several people -- including trans people -- who are concerned about transition regret, we can't keep going on like this.

So look at the studies on transition regret. You're still getting a tiny minority. Yes, you need to be careful about the diagnosis, which is what puberty blockers are all about.

Dysphoria treatments need to change.

Because it only improves the health and quality of life of 95% of patients? You'd be against treatment for aggressive cancers?

If you think that's okay, either you don't get what gender dysphoria does, or your enjoyment of the lifelong suffering of others brings colours any discussion you might have on ethics.

I'm assuming you saw this study?

There was a meta-analysis of all the research to date earlier this year.

They included 53 studies, the conclusion is:

This review supports the need for more sustainable and accessible gender-affirming surgery as a means for improving the mental health and overall QoL among transgender individuals and indicates the need for further research with greater methodological rigor focusing on correlates of positive gender-affirming surgical outcomes. Without social, legal, and public policy responses to transgender discrimination, marginalization and exclusion, the beneficial outcomes of improved gender-affirming surgery will remain unclear.

So i think there is a base for the claim that gender affirming surgery, which is part of transitioning, does improve mental health and quality of life. The current evidence seems to be that discrimination, marginalization and exclusion are clouding the issue.

Not to say that there were no papers that found no benefit, such as the one you cite, but many more of the papers found a reduction in in depression, suicidality and anxiety than found no benefit: Including some that found post GAS sudicidality was reduced to that of the patient's cis peers.

In fact, is it not possible that puberty itself is causing the negative thoughts, depression and confusion?

That happens a fair bit. The good thing about puberty blockers, is you can stop taking them, and go through puberty.

Would it not be more ethical to first allow a child to become mature enough to make a decision themselves without sterilising them, something they might later regret?

Puberty blockers don't sterilise anyone. Gender reassignment surgery might. Which is why you use puberty blockers on a child.

Why is it that suicidal thoughts and behaviour doesn't reduce after surgery?

They do.

Association Between Gender-Affirming Surgeries and Mental Health Outcomes

Surely you are aware of the Tavistock Clinic scandal, the NHS clinic pressuring kids to go on puberty blockers and is at risk of being sued by thousands of patients?

As with other parts of the NHS, under-funding and under-staffing results in too short consultation periods, unclear treatment pathways due to uncertain diagnosis.

I'm pretty sure if you just left the EU, you could put £350 Million per week back into the NHS, solving these issues.

Why is is that there is predominantly transgenderism in mostly super woke areas like California?

Because kids in conservative places would suffer through rather than bring it up.

If you see what you want to see, I guess you will never have to question your position.

Right back at you.

You didn't provide any links to:

1) Some governments pushing this
2) Some medical institutions pushing this
3) Some specialists pushing this. (Do you mean medical specialists?)
4) Parents pushing this

Did you make it up yourself, or do you claim "Tavistock" is sufficient for each of those?

Then why is there such thing as a pediatric gender clinic?

Because Children can have gender disphoria.

Kids are transitioned as young as 3 years old,

Right. When I said "no one transitions kids", I didn't mean social transitioning. Kids do that.

and medical interventions (puberty blockers are the first one) can start as soon as 11

Puberty blockers are to delay puberty so that they don't have to do gender affirming hormone treatment or gender affirming surgery on a kid.

Jazz Jennings received sexual reassignment surgery (the genital surgery) at 16 and it required 4 revisions because not enough penile tissue grew due to the effects of puberty blockers.

That's unusually young to be allowed genital reassignment surgery. Guidelines where I am are 18. But it seems in that case they were pretty confident of the psychology, and they seem to have gotten it right.

That means that every person who commits suicide after transition is not counted, and countless others, happy or not, may choose not to take the survey, or if their contact information is outdated or not recorded, they aren't part of the survey.

It would be more complete if they surveyed the dead as well. But, given that you can't do that, the about ~97% of living trans people is still overwhelming.

I really think you should listen to the stories of detransitioners. You'll hear that many of them are homosexuals who suffered with extremely homophobic families.

It's important not to make that mistake when you're doing diagnosis. If someone has an extremely homophobic family you need to be especially cautious. Mistakes have, indeed, been made.

But the other 97% were correctly diagnosed, and are happier, have fewer mental issues, and kill themselves less because of the treatments that we have for that diagnosis.

Absolutely not and this is such a damaging myth.

Okay.

Here's a paper showing that homophobia is associated with homosexual arousal.

Where's the science behind your claim "Absolutely not"?

Then I think the other claims you've made bear discussing.

The shooter is clearly just attempting to avoid hate crime charges by identifying as non-binary since that doesn't require any kind of transition and anyone can claim the label.

Not impossibly. I can't find any indication that he identified as non-binary prior to his defence lawyers claiming that in their filings. Shooting a bunch of people dead and getting pistol whipped to hospitalisation with your own pistol seem an unlikely therapy to find your true gender: But I'm no psychologist.

WebMD even has an article about issues with transitioning: Doctors Have Failed Them, Say Those Who Regret Transitioning

A small minority of people should not have transitioned. They were misdiagnosed.

About 97% of people who transition are happy with the decision. It would be better to do better, and I suspect that we are doing better than we have in the past.

But the figures don't support the argument that transitioning is wrong. It is right in the vast majority of cases.
