Shall we talk about the fact that 90% of people with gender dysphoria just grow out of it and realise that they're (at most) gay?

Or that 40% of those who go through genital mutilation and hormone abuse attempt suicide?

No?

We're going to keep conflating gay "conversion therapy" (pointlessly telling you that what you genuinely feel is wrong) with gender dysphoria therapy where you're helped to understand the biological fact that there's no such thing as a female brain in a man's body or vice versa?

No, huh?

Going to keep pushing this #StunningAndBrave line, regardless of the cost in lives? Going to keep pointing to the few - the very, very few - happy examples of survivors of hormone abuse and mutilation as though they are the norm rather than a statistical aberration within a statistical aberration?

Carry on then, but don't kid yourself about what you are doing, or why.

Dysphoria. A sickness of the mind. The only sickness where the cure is for the unafflicted to humour the suffers delusions.

if you are sick and don't want treatment so be it. But don't ask me to accept it as normality.

Should've been electrocuted more.

BBC trying to promote this stuff yet again.

Stop it FFS, these people have mental health issues, they dont need you parading them on the web like some Victorian freak show.
