The Telegraph U.K. reports that Bath Spa University initially approved a professor’s research grant to study “de-transitioning” transgendered individuals, but revoked the money after surprising early results in the study were deemed “politically incorrect” by the ethics committee.
“De-transitioning” is the term used to describe the process in which individuals operationally change their sex choice back to their biological sex after regretting a transgender reassignment surgery.
Professor James Caspian is a psychotherapist whose specialty is transgendered individuals.
In 2014, Caspian had a conversation with Professor Diroslav Djordjevic that sparked curiosity. Djordjevic is the “world-leading genital reconstructive surgeon.”
Djordjevic mentioned to Caspian interesting empirical evidence; his own surgeries that he preformed. Djoredjevic is convinced that the number of individuals who undergo sex change operations, regret their decision, and opt to change back to their biological sex is on the rise.
His patients come from all over the world, experience depression, and sometimes have suicidal thoughts, says the surgeon.
"It can be a real disaster to hear these stories,” says the 52-year-old.
Djordjevic practices strict guidelines to hopefully prevent individuals from regretting their sex change operation. He requires that his potential patients go through a rigorous psychological evaluation that lasts nearly two years. They also must provide two professional recommendations that show why the patient is making a safe and proper decision.
Other clinics, the doctor notes, do not practice this. Other places simply require a check.
“I have heard stories of people visiting surgeries who only checked if they had the money to pay,” he says. “We have to stop this. As a community, we have to make very strong rules: nobody who wants to make this type of surgery or just make money can be allowed to do so.”
His main fear is that the the medical community will soon deem it ethical to provide transition surgeries to minors.
“I’m afraid what will happen five to 10 years later with this person,” he says. “It is more than about surgery; it’s an issue of human rights. I could not accept [minors] as a patient because I’d be afraid what would happen to their brain and mind.”
With so little understood about the long term effects of sex change surgery, Professor Caspian wanted to understand the extent and reasons why patients decide to change back. Bath Spa University at first approved his funding request for this endeavor.
But, Professor Caspian’s study into this subject was defunded after the administration was afraid his findings would harm the university’s reputation in the transgendered community. Caspian said that,
"The fundamental reason given was that it might cause criticism of the research on social media, and criticism of the research would be criticism of the university. They also added it’s better not to offend people. University exists to encourage discussion, research, dissent even, challenging ideas that are out of date or not particularly useful.”
He added that the university told him,
"Engaging in a potentially politically incorrect piece of research carries a risk to the university. Attacks on social media may not be confined to the researcher, but may involve the university. The posting of unpleasant material on blogs or social media may be detrimental to the reputation of the university.”
As the Telegraph piece notes, Bath Spa is potentially committing a dangerous mistake by shutting down his research.
As Professor Djordjevic explains, many transgendered individuals regret their decisions and contemplate suicide. Professor Caspian’s research could help prevent confused individuals from making a life altering decision that they are going to regret.
Society is going to see a lot more of this for the next decade or two. Many children were pushed into this ‘lifestyle’ before they had a chance to decide on their own.
Some parents or teachers may be living vicariously through the young people they influence to go through these dramatic changes. Some hormonal functions may be compromised or distorted in function for good.
The truth about transgenders must be suppressed.
These sex change demons are willing to destroy people’s lives even when the biology is against them. This is a sociological cancer weaving its sickness on the natural design of mankind.
A child that isn’t old enough to choose their bed time is supposed to be mature enough to make a decision about trying to change their sex. SMH.
Mrs. Garrison: Hello doctor, looks like I need an abortion. [sits on the chair and puts his feet on the stirrups]
Doctor: ...an abortion?
Mrs. Garrison: Yeah, Ive got one growing inside me. Now, are you gonna scramble its brains or just vacuum it out? [a nurse arrives and her jaw drops] ...If you want you can just scramble it and Ill queef it out myself.
Doctor: Mmister Garrison-
Mrs. Garrison: [correcting him] Mrs. Garrison.
Doctor: Mmrs. Garrison, you cant have an abortion.
Mrs. Garrison: Dont you tell me what I can and cant do with my body! [gets up, goes to the nurse, and hugs her] A woman has a right to choose!
Doctor: No, I mean youre physically unable to have an abortion, because you cant get pregnant.
Mrs. Garrison: But I missed my period.
Doctor: You cant have periods either. [Mrs. Garrison looks surprised] You had a sex change, Mr. Garrison, but you dont have ovaries or a womb. You dont produce eggs.
Mrs. Garrison: [sits down] You mean, Ill never know what it feels like to have a baby growing inside me and then scramble its brains and vacuum it out?
Doctor: N-thats right.
Mrs. Garrison: But I paid five thousand dollars to be a woman. This would mean I Im not really a woman. I... Im just a... a Im just a guy with a mutilated penis!
Doctor: Basically, yes.
Mrs. Garrison: ...Oh boy, do I feel like a jackass.
unpossible... science is science, unless it comes to gloBULL warming that is
Ooops, I was eating a Milky Way and I said, “Go ahead and whack off my pee-pee.” “No regerts?”
Gender reassignment surgery should be considered a form of genocide.
Part of “The War on Truth”.
God planned you to be XX or XY at birth and you’ll stay that way till death.
No amount of sex reassignment surgery or anything else can change your birth sex. Period.
Bath Spa University.
Is that like a bath house?
This is a real life case of denying free speech.
Social activists are not. They claim they are, but this sort of action proves otherwise; they're interested in their own welfare, from feelings of moral righteousness to issues of funding. Meanwhile the patient affected with severe gender dysphoria is not getting the help he needs, in fact, is forbidden even to seek it. A century from now that will be seen properly as quackery. At the moment it's masquerading as a civil rights campaign.
The libtards even got made when some doctors showed facts that same sex marriage was hurtful to adopted children. But hey, as long as these sickos feel good right?
Its amazing how ahead of the curve Parker and Stone were on the normalization of that. That epi was what? 8-10 years ago?
