LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — Detractors are attempting to derail the well-being of trans people with false rhetoric in the media about “rampant regret” after undergoing medical treatment. By using out of context quotes in their rhetoric from unlinked sources, the reader are unaware that they may be older “studies” from the days when being trans was considered a mental illness, or from a wholly biased source. Either way, access to the entire study is not available for the reader to make an objective review.
Fortunately, reputable and recent science research evidence exists and debunks their claims. Further, the research is transparent and available to anyone to read.
Here is a quote and link to a study published earlier this year that supports the use of medical intervention in trans kids and early adults:
“RESULTS: After gender reassignment, in young adulthood, the GD [gender dysphoria] was alleviated and psychological functioning had steadily improved. Well-being was similar to or better than same-age young adults from the general population. Improvements in psychological functioning were positively correlated with postsurgical subjective well-being.”
See the entire study: http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/early/2014/09/02/peds.2013-2958.abstract
Let me pull out this sentence from the quote: “Well-being was similar to or better than same-age young adults from the general population.” I challenge those detractors to debunk this.
I wrote last year about another study on hormone blockers : https://lexiecannes.com/2013/06/19/hormone-blockers-safe-for-transgender-kids-says-new-study/
