I completely agree. I have done quite a bit of research on the broader topic including sex mutilation surgery and it is my sense, also, that most of the people who get the operations are being fast tracked by the doctors. In some cases, zero attention is given to helping them be happy with what they have. In fact, it is illegal in 4 states for doctors to help minors to go straight and are instead given all the other options so they can “accept who they really are”. It is one of the reasons I despise Chris Christie because he signed that piece of legislation in NJ.
Intersex people are a whole different category and I agree with you. They have my appreciation for the difficulties they have to face. It is a birth defect. Not at all the same as gender identity disorder. I think the GID people try to piggyback sympathy for their cause on the intersex people, but those are separate situations entirely.
I have read so many sad cases of “sex change” regret that it makes me alarmed at how the public is being bamboozled into believing it is all sweetness and light. Many of the men who get butchered are deeply depressed. Some mention feeling phantom limb syndrome for their missing genitals. There is no way to regain what they lose. Many of them say that they were not properly counseled beforehand about what to expect and are left with a shattered feeling afterward. I don’t know why we don’t hear of medical malpractice suits. Could be that these poor souls are being silenced and intimidated. It would not surprise me. The LGBT crowd cries loudly about being ostracized and disrespected from without, but some of the worst bullying occurs within their community.
