This is also the case with Body Dismorphia, no?
We haven’t found anything better in decades and the rate of regretting surgery is in fact quite low with the rate of those regretting hormone treatment in transwomen even lower.
Just because we have not found a “better” “treatment” does not mean that we should be going along with hormonal disruption and mutilative surgery, nor that we should stop looking for one, which is what happens when we decide that a situation is not abnormal.
I would be interested in finding out how well tracked post-operative transgender people are, along with how many “drop out” during the process.
And how many people actually get their chromosomes tested? What about chimeras? In the case of a chimera is it a preponderance of XX or XY? If a person is mostly XY chromosome, but gives birth that automatically means they are female, right? What about Klinefelter’s Syndrome where one has an XXY chromosome configuration? How about CAIS where the chromosomes are XY, but the body and mind develop as female for the most part? My point is that “XX is female, XY is male and there are no exceptions” is a rather inaccurate belief.
While it is true that there are cases of genetic abnormality, accidents, etc., these are exceptions, and they are exceptions apart from transgenderism.
If we were searching for a treatment, seems like genetic testing would be a requirement of transitioning, no?
And what of cases of profound psychological distress, is it really unnecessary at that point?
How do we treat other cases of profound psychosocial distress? If Sue experiences profound psychological distress because the man who violently attacked her, leaving her paralyzed, can still walk, should we paralyze the attacker?
The problem is that our society has no way of helping those in distress, and does not want to hear about it, so they do absurd things to “fix” distress-causing situations.
