    Being transgender is linked to depression and suicide. We shouldn't celebrate it, we should help these people so they can live full happy lives.

      The suicide/depression rates are directly tied to not accepting them. If the trans person is accepted statistically symptoms of depression decrease by 71% and suicide attempts go down by 65%. The best way to help them is to accept them

    I love how so many people who disagree with transgender, reply to all the comments supporting trans rights. Now I don't know how a trans person feels, so I don't want to judge them just because I`m taught to disagree, the fact they have courage to undergo surgeries to be who they wanna be, tells me it isn't a choice. I`m gay, and as I was hitting puberty and stuff, I realized I was gay, but now looking at my old pics of me as a 5 or 10 year old, I literally have seen me posing girly, like gay. I`m muslim, so I wasn't taught or even knew about lgbtq+, I was born gay.

    There is no such thing as "transgendered" although there is this vile phenomena of butchers (plastic surgeons) who charge tens of thousands to sculpt (carve) ones flesh into a new shape... When one of these "surgeons" carve up a females face to make them look "younger" did they really make them younger? Or is it simply for the look because we all know the butcher cant make people young but they can rearrange a face.... Its exactly the same with "transgenderism", its just a look. These people were equal before they employed a butcher now they are just the "butchered"

      @Joshi :3 that is not science that is "new ageism". "body dismorphia" is a psychological problem and a brain is a brain, its impossible for a brain to be either "male or female".we have different chromosomes, genetics, hormonal differences, physical differences and most blatantly ANATOMICALLY different....

    • Joshi :3
      Joshi :3 Month ago

      But most of transgender people undergo severe body dysphoria before they transition. And their brains are identical to the gender they identify as, and not the brains of the gender they were assigned at birth.

      @Joshi :3 here is why gender studies are rubbish en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_method
      True research should be able to be repeated, control groups should be as well. Gender studies don't apply these criterias.
      I mean, if human being with particular type of genital that was born by father (human male) and mother (human female) thinks he or she is an elf or a hoover he or she actually don't stop being a human with particular gender. It's not scientists' goal to learn and explore people's imagination. It's psychiatrist's goal

      @The ArmChairCritique The mental disorder is called gender dysphoria. Transitioning is the treatment.

      It seems that gender identity is something you'd rather not try to understand, and so to you, if someone's gender identity does not match their genitalia, they have have a mental disorder. The very term denotes something is inherently "wrong" with them. That is untrue. We've learned from history, however, that there is plenty wrong with the willful ignorance that leads to misclassification.

      @Nazli Aydin I'm not saying they're faking I'm saying its a mental disorder similar to something like MPD or bipolarism. And, in my expirience, the main reason why people reject that assessment is due to stigma around Mental disorders/illness. And just to reitterate, just because someone has some disorder it in no way makes them less than

    • Nazli Aydin
      Nazli Aydin 2 months ago +2

      @The ArmChairCritique there have been scientific studies that prove that trans people's brains work more like the gender they identify as rather than the gender they were born with. And if people were for some reason faking that they were born in the wrong body, then they wouldn't do things like commit suicide over it. If they were faking it they'd just get over themselves and continue their life as the gender they were assigned at birth.

    I know not all transgenders have gender dysphoria, but we still can't act like this is normal. Sure it will never go away, but that doesn't make it normal. It's biologically and psychologically abnormal, and to teach kids they might want reassignment surgery is one of the worst things this movement has done.
    Another terrible thing: firing people for using the 'wrong' pronouns. Not as bad, but still wrong.

    • Jonny Lupus
      Jonny Lupus Month ago +1

      ​@Ellie Currently that is actually fake news. Letting transgenders get knifed up and pumped with hormones does not help the suicide rate at all. Some might not, but the risk is still there. It's better to treat the mind instead. That would "make the situation better". And this is especially a problem when so many have regretted reassignment, and there are kids out there thinking they'll die if they don't have it right away.

      But for a lot of trans people, their dysphoria doesn't alleviate until they go through reassignment surgery? Plus they don't have to do ALL of the kinds of surgery available - some people just take hormones, some go through bottom surgery, some do top, it's good to educate about the options they have.

      @L M The suicidal rate isn't high because the people are mentally unhealthy because of their transsexuality, it's because they get bullied and rejected their whole lives. Fucking intellect amoeba. The suicidal rate goes down for transgender people who transitioned (which is recommended by doctors and actual professionals) but it's still worryingly high because they are still mistreated from society, family and so on. To not see the connection there just means you are highly ignorant of human behavior.

      GodKingVivec I smell lies or self hatred. You know that folks who transition usually pass quite well in society. Aka blend witch I think is a great thing. One only has to share if they feel like it. Otherwise they are just living their lives. Where it can get crazy is the non binary aspect. As I can see how folks can find that confusing. Not saying 1 or the other is better. All things evolve what makes us think people don’t ?

      @Kai Xia It harms the person with the illness, Id certainly consider having a disease that makes you want to mutilate yourself harmful to the person, and violent and unstable when someone denies your false reality to be pretty harmful to others too. This disease has roots in schitzophrenia and depression and has created the highest suicide rate in a demographic of people since jews were in the concentration camps, thats extremely harmful. And maybe its not a huge inconvenience, but if someone doesnt want to participate in your game, forcing them by law and trying to thought/speech police them is a massive problem. By the way, I know all this because I am a trans person who DOESNT have all the psycho parts that modern trans people have. Im not delusional enough to believe I am a woman, or try to force others to refer to me as such. Im also not willing to mutilate myself to get a pointless, nonfunctioning, cheaply made, facsimile of a vagina. And I certainly dont feel like getting into a violent mob or suicidal because people dont want to pretend there are more than 2 genders.

      @L M you are not very bright, are you? Languages are invented by us, it's just a concept we all believe in. And language is different for every culture and country. Their point was that the English language assigns gendered pronouns to objects, although it doesn't make much sense in the sense of gender as we know it. In German for instance, and in many other languages "it" is barely used at all for objects, in those languages all objects have been assigned a gendered pronoun, but why? Why's the sun female in German, die Sonne, but male in French, le soleil? He, she, one border further and it's all different. He and she, male and female, that is pretty plain and basic. Some cultures and countries understand the concept of third genders and embraced it in their language as naturally as English speakers do it with "he" and "she". Are they wrong just because their concept of language differs from the one you are speaking? How do you know that you aren't the person in the wrong who speaks a language lacking in words to describe actually existing things?
      The point was an intelligent one, you just completely missed it.

    Transgender-ism was and always will be a mental illness. Despite the WHO removing it from its list of mental diseases, there is no quality scientific literature free from conflicting interests which point towards it being a healthy aspect of an individual's life.
    Not only is it now deemed politically incorrect to discuss (let alone experiment with/investigate) the origins and effects of gender dysphoria under controlled clinical environments, it is now portrayed as discriminatory and "trans-phobic" to express views which conflict predominantly politically-left opinions.
    This issue is beyond an emotional or political debate and is indeed a scientific one. Look at the statistics, people suffering from gender dysphoria not only have higher rates of severe depression and anxiety, but also a suicide rate of 40%. Of course, correlation does not always imply causation and common a argument regarding the contributing factors of these symptoms commonly associated with other mental disorders is that these symptoms manifest as a result of societal expectations/pressures. This appears to be a logically sound argument but when you realize the suicide rate (40%) is comparable to Jews in concentration camps, black slaves and exceeds those of soldiers in the front line, its clear that environmental stress is obviously not the only reason; unless you're proposing the idea that trans-individuals are being treated worse than black slaves and are under more pressure than soldiers in combat.
    This is NOT discrimination. This is taking initiative and understanding that we are not doing these individuals any good by humoring them and feeding them false information that their disorder does not need to be treated or cured.
    Of course there is a camp of people who acknowledge gender dysphoria as an illness with transitioning being the only effective cure. This is absolutely absurd, because in exchange for a marginal decrease in the prevalence of suicides and depression, we are mutilating the bodies of these sick people and pumping them full of steroids that shave years off of their lives and manifest a whole array of health ramifications.
    Is this really how we as humans tend to those who are unfortunate enough to be sick?

A new law that allows health care workers to deny lgbtq people healthcare because religion (scumbags like you) just to name A FEW . So far 32 laws and actions have been taken while Trump is president to systematically deny/take away Trans (LGBTQ) peoples rights. But you think all trans people worship Satan so clearly you will not even bother to understand this. You are the one that needs mental help.

      Andy Holmes resorting to insults already? They’re not insane, as you would know if you actually did your research. (Conspiracy Theory sites don’t count)
      For one, they are barred from serving in the military. But the main issue facing trans people is the lack of protection for their rights, and the discrimination they face.

      @Fallen Mango Trans people already have the same rights as everyone else, no one is trying to take them away. Why do transgenders need more rights, and need to take away everyone else's to get them? It's quite obvious to anyone with common sense, that these sick people only want to abuse those 'rights', to rule over the rest of us.

      @Andy HolmesThis response makes no sense in this context. You're the one trying to take away the rights of trans people. In fact, I specifically used myself as an example demonstrating why we don't try to make things illegal because of our irrational fears.

    If they want to live that way let them but do not force me with your so called pronouns , stay away from our innocent children in schools when you want to shove it down their throats at the age of 4/5 that they can be boy /girl or girl/boy … You want to be a pretend woman go ahead but you have no idea what a real woman goes through when she first gets her monthly the pains and cramps that she has to go through every month and ovulation, being pregnant, breast feeding , giving birth, going through the menopause , so please you have no idea what it is like being a woman and not forgetting they are also destroying woman's sports and the boys scouts … What real woman has to have her vagina built every ten years? what woman has to take hormones for the rest of her life? so please enough of the LGBTQ I am sick of it, just stay out of our way of living and we will stay out of yours.

      Court Whal hey man thanks for replying to me, I just wanted to say the thing that stops me from agreeing is that disorders like my OCD give me irrational thoughts and anxiety and I can only relieve them by giving I into their demands for compulsion, or by waiting and exposing my self to them (ERP therapy) until they go away. Lifestyle change like exercise sleep healthy eating, and medication help me to reduce my symptoms, and trusting what I know over what I feel. I know the two aren’t exactly the same but it seems like a logical inconsistency to tell someone they can change (which I believe to be well intended lying) in order to reduce symptoms. I think there should be different ways of treatment that are researched because I think they’re more ethical. We probably have different viewpoints regarding this but I think it’s good to have a dialogue. A couple of my closest friends identify themselves as transgender and I love them very much I know we all just want what’s best for people

      @Some1 Human I agree. People don't give Christianity a chance because of a lack of evidence. The need of evidence is essentially the opposite of what God wants: Faith. The faith of a child. Blessed are those who don't see yet still believe.

      @Some1 Human The Bible is a very interesting book/set of many books. I have a lot of disagreements with it but a number of agreements as well, it's an interesting read and a very impressive piece of writings.
      People say God isn't real in general, it's not targeted specifically at Christianity, maybe they're right maybe they're wrong, but a lot of them did give Christianity a chance, I know a lot of them were raised Christian.

    I seriously think that transgenderism is a disorder.
    Please bear with me I’m not transphobic or something. It was called gender dysphoria and I don’t understand why people justify it as who they really are. How do you know that? It must feel so awful and my deepest sympathies go to anyone (including some of my closest friends) who suffer with feeling like they don’t belong in their own body, but just because you feel that way doesn’t mean you should be that way. I think it’s a fair argument about how we treat people who feel this way and I think the focus should be on finding ways to reduce or manage feelings of dysphoria rather than promote the options of permanent physical change, expensive surgery, hormones, etc.

      You do know that what you’re proposing was the standard practice within psychology and psychiatry for decades, and it had disastrous results. The only treatment that has been shown to improve the health of transgender people is transitioning, and it is therefore the standard treatment. Considering the growing evidence of the biological nature of transsexualism it would also be redundant to try and treat it through talk therapy etc.

    • Andy Holmes

      @S H We already have human rights. All the rights trans people want unto themselves, necessarily rescind rights from those who aren't trans. Where does it end? When transgenders have absolute authority over others? That's where we're heading with their demands. To become second class citizens to the mentally ill.

      @maxybaer123 I think you need to look into how DBT and CBT work. Treatment is about coping and changing our individual thinking. It has nothing to do with changing the world. The best route for treatment is to change the issues with the individual.
      Saying that people with BPD, or Body Dismorphia, or Gender Identity Disorder have increased harm to self or suicidality is an effect of their environment or people treating them poorly is actually not statistically significant. The numbers are far to great and it suggests something along the lines of a pathology. To say Trans people or my population are exposed to more cruel treatment that leads to more that 7x the national averages for things like suicidality is ridiculous and is not backed by any research.
      The issue is we are not learning to cope and we are learning to be victims rather than learning how to take control of our own minds and feelings. If this weren't the case DBT and CBT wouldn't be so successful.
      I understand that most of the misinformed positions come from a position of empathy. This does not however make them immediately valid.

    You need to realize that becoming a trans person is not netural. The medical treatment in order to achive the transformation requires getting hormones, that force your body to accept whats neturally does not belong there. People having problems with their identity is a pshicological problem that can be treated by a psychologist not by surgery.

      Whatever you need to tell yourself to feel better about being transphobic. It's the report that _you_ mentioned which points to the truth of this. "Half the population?" Whatever do you mean by that?

      The study you link only goes further to prove my point.

      Committing suicide while transitioning is also irrelevant in alleviating the responsibility of those who drive them to it.

      If you have anything at all to show that the high suicide rate among transgender people is caused by the actual act of gender transitioning, I'm all ears.

    • Aliens
      Aliens 2 months ago

      Aaron Rosenberg The suicide rate exceeds that of soldiers at war and can be likened to black slaves in the 1800’s and jews in concentration camps. Assuming that this is entirely due to social pressures is absolutely ridiculous when it comes to nearly half the population. There is obviously another factor at play here. You can argue that transitioning treats this issue, but if they’re already under pressure before transitioning, you can only imagine how much they would have after. Changing your genitalia won’t make any more of a difference than keeping what you were born with. On top of that, according to this study, those who have transitioned already are still committing suicide at an extremely high rate - williamsinstitute.law.ucla.edu/wp-content/uploads/AFSP-Williams-Suicide-Report-Final.pdf
      www.vocativ.com/culture/lgbt/transgender-suicide/index.html
      This article details a person that was already transitioning and still committed suicide. This treatment seems to be ineffective. Insanity is trying the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

    My school has a uniform. The girls wear skirts, the boys pants. During winter, we the girls are also allowed to wear pants. So when we started wearing skirts again a bit over a month ago we were surprised to see a girl had come out and came to school wearing a skirt. She had worn make up before before she started wearing the skirt, often wore shoes with heels and did her hair in androgynous styles. No one expected her to fully come out as a girl though. I personally thought she was just really free with her gender until then.
    The first week or so I saw her being alone quite a lot and started to worry that she had lost some friends because of the transition, and people kept talking about her and spreading rumours. The boys in my class couldn't shut up about it, mocking her new looks and coming up with fake, terrible female names to replace her male one.
    But right now I see she's with people again and she seems to be doing fine. My school also did a workshop around LGBTQ+ people and it was well received by everyone, even by some of my classmates who typically don't react well to those kinds of things.
    In the end I think it all worked out fine. I just wanted to share this story. Thanks for reading!

      @escape209 no, not true. I have many classmates that are very public about not supporting LGBT. We don't really care, it's their opinion, but to this they reacted very positively. They could've reacted the same way they always had, but they didn't. They said this was better than they expected cause it didn't feel like the usual "brainwashing people into liking LGBT/feminism/etc."
      You can think otherwise of course, but I was there and I know them. They always speak their mind exactly as it is.
      Edit: let me add that I have an English teacher that is very heavily pro lgbt and feminism (partially cause she's a lesbian herself) and the same students constantly argue with her about those things. But the teacher doesn't give them a punishment because there's this thing called free speech.

    I am sympathetic to the trans cause... the problem is some very bad folks have taken the cause and used it to push agendas that shouldn't be packaged with the needs of the individuals fighting for their personal identities to be accepted. I believe in the individual, no matter the gender, orientation, etc. Where I live in California I run into transitioning people regularly. It's a part of life here... just another person. What I take issue with is the lack of education on the topic using proper study and science. We need to inspire people to be more welcoming to this community without compelling "acceptance" via the legal system. We need to have real discussions on this topic, and I feel that starts with separating the trans movement from the other happenings going on right now in the world. We need to explore reasonable and safe solutions for the individual and the community at large to allow people of all genders to live openly without persecution. We've seen racial divides fall over the years, this is just another step on the road to a more open world. I hope we can get there with logic, reason, science, and understanding people.

      @maxybaer123 I think you have mental illness, but unfortunately a therapist won't really help.

      @maxybaer123 I want to point out your statement... "I feel like you have this idea" and I want to stop you there. I have elaborated on multiple comment responses, so if you need more substance then please read my other replies to other people on this thread.

      I am not accusing any trans individuals of anything, but I am stating that there are certain groups doing bad things while claiming they are a part of this cause. It takes good attention away and focuses negative attention on what is a fair and humane movement. The fringe instances are not the norm, but 2 sides of this argument make it seem so. That is it... no subtext on that point at all.

      I work in consulting, and every single company I have seen the inner workings of take diversity very seriously. The example you give is not the norm where I live. This issue needs to be tackled where it resides. Which companies are doing this? Are we talking 1 or 2 examples? More? If they can be substantiated, then why isn't HR brought it to resolve the issue? In recent news... mainstream news... there have been instances where law has punished people for misgendering someone else. It is being treated as a hate crime. I don't agree with this unless serious intent can be substantiated. In the instances I read, they don't appear to have been from a place of hate so much as ignorance. Where do YOU draw that line? Ultimately this comes back to education (which this video points out).

      Free speech is protected until the speech violates the legal rights of another individual. Basically threatening someone with harm and inciting violence are not protected under the first ammendment. That seems pretty fair to me. Common decency takes care of the rest, and that's potentially the real issue I see. People seem to have forgotten about common decency. I will tell you though, that speech can only hurt as much as you allow it to. Take the power away from the words, but don't try to take the words away.

      @maxybaer123 I think it's wrong to lie about your gender. And I have legitimate reason to worry about being attacked by those who do.

    People aren't particularly against trans folks. It's the policies and things fringe ones are pushing for. Like giving drugs and surgeries to little kids as young as 3, letting a tween boy dance and strip in drag for money on the bar at a LGBT club, trans women in sports with biological females, forcing schools to normalize it(totally different than teaching kids to be tolerant to all people)etc. Just because you're take issue with things like that does NOT mean you hate trans people. At all. My trans roommate I lease a room takes issues with those things and tells me many trans folks think the same. Most just want to be treated like everyone else, but when it starts to interfere with others lives and innocent children who are easily influenced or don't grasp those things people have a RIGHT to speak up. We have a right to criticize in this country(US)still. As long as obviously people aren't calling for people to be hurt, which I don't really see. I see it from really only one side politically today in large part.

      @Andy Holmes You: Your 'evidence' is flat out lies and insinuation

      Also you: The Illuminati merely use transgenders as their puppets
      You want to protect the 'rights' of perverted psychopathic killers

    • Andy Holmes

      @JenModding Your 'evidence' is flat out lies and insinuation. That's not worthy of debate. Besides, why would I debate a disgusting Satanist? I doubt the Illuminati are transgender, they're too smart. The Illuminati merely use transgenders as their puppets. They can rely upon those who publicly lie about their gender, to do their bidding. You want to protect the 'rights' of perverted psychopathic killers, who constantly deceive the public en masse. You must be so proud!

      @Andy Holmes But this entire discussion is pointless, it's abundantly clear you have no interest in debate, I provide you with evidence and you just go "Well I think they're lying because they're the Illuminati", then it's entirely pointless to even bother talking to you, as you'll ignore any evidence thanks to cognitive dissonance.

      @JenModding Thanks for including my original comment, though it's not deleted, only edited. The fact is I don't trust transgender people an inch. Especially considering they covertly run the world's governments and major enterprises, directing societal affairs to an end where they have ultimate control. Your begging us to give up our rights, will only ensure the completion of their sinister plans.

      @JenModding So the trans panic clause has only been used in three cases, which resulted in lowered charges with two defendants, but still murder. That's what you're so worried about? Two people got only several decades in prison, instead of life? Trans have so much to worry about according to you, that no one should object when it's legal for them to murder the rest of us. That's the direction we're heading, with all of your insipid demands, infringing upon our most respected rights.

      @Pink_Pariah That's kind of the opposite of accepting who and what you are. That's why they become trans because they don't like the gender they are. Trans accepting what they are is kind of an oxymoron. Maybe I'm the ignorant one here since I am not trans, but feel free to try and change my mind.

    • Pink_Pariah

    As many have been pointing out in the comments 6 minutes is not enough to cover this topic.
    I recommend checking out Contrapoints, she is a trans RUclipr who talks about the her life as a trans women in very well made and long videos, along with talking about other topics like the Alt-Right and Social Justice.

    - Trans people don't deserve to tell their stories.
    - Trans people don't exist.
    Please someone help me understand please.

      @Fallen Mango Have I discriminated against them now?! idiot. All I said was much bigger issues in the world and that people are sick about hearing about it. Get over yourselves...average person couldn't care less. I don't want this crap pushed down my throat. I don't spout off every day because I think I'm unfairly treated.

      @Andy Holmes Transgender people do not hold the highest positions of power in society, and the bible is not a peer reviewed study, so no, it is not evidence of anything.
