sorry, my posts are getting so long! I do have one more thing to add, and that is that I also fear the peer pressure on trans-identifying people, including children to be dangerous. I am active in the LGBT community myself and have had some long converstions with transwomen who I think a generation ago would have been content and accepted being occasionally transvestite, but have been pressured to go all the way, asking for hormones, on the list for surgry, or post surgery. While they may well be all happy and smiley publically, I know several who feel anything but that privately. Two have been suffering some sort of psychotic depression since starting female hormones, which isn't really a particular surprise, when you think what female hormones can sometimes do to the female bodies which they are actually for. One I know is post surgery, and is "making the best of it" as the damage to their body can't be undone, but are still in state of shock at how brutalised they feel, ( their words) Like inhabiting a body that has survived a catastrophic accident ( their words). There are a few people prepared to voice regrets publically, but not many, and a lot of children just seem to be swept along in the idea that what ever problems they have will be solved by gender reasignement. Much as high suicide and attempted suicide rates are used as a reason that gender reassignment should be offered to children, the suicide and attempted suicide rates are higher after. You have to consider that we are allowing children to make irreversible changes to their bodies, including making themselves infertile I should add for balance that most of the transwomen and transmen I have spoken to on a personal level who have undergone hormones or surgery have not expressed any regret to me.
