Transgender People’s Neurological Needs

I mentioned that marriage is correlated with healthier and happier lives. The flip side of this is that transgenderism is correlated with an assortment of psychiatric and physical problems.

Scientific American magazine reports:

As a transgender neurologist, I advocate for the improved health care of other transgender people. I present my research findings to professional organizations and medical colleges throughout the U.S. While doing so, the most frequent criticism I receive from neurologists is: “What does being transgender have to do with neurology, the branch of medicine focused on the nervous system?” ...

Nevertheless, scientific research throughout the last decade has demonstrated that being transgender can have a lot to do with the health of the brain and the rest of the nervous system.

So what is the relation? Some transgender advocates say that the difficulties are caused by the stress of discrimination. But this is like saying that single people have shorter lives because of the stresses that society puts on singles. Possible, but unlikely.

My theory is that unhappy unhealthy people are more likely to become transgender, just as happy healthy people are more likely to get married.

In recent years, society has become much more accepting of transgenders, but it is not clear that it has made any transgenders better off. I suspect the opposite.

To apply a tiny modicum of actual reason to 'Why are transgenders miserable', it isn't much of a stretch to say:

1. Logistically, being transgender puts you into a very small group, much smaller proportionally than the general homosexual community, thus your options for companionship are tiny. Humans as a rule do not thrive when they are socially isolated and alienatated from each other, so it should not come as a surprise to anyone that people in such a small social sub-group suffer from greater societal stresses.

2. Transgender folk have a mental disorder. I'm sorry, but when you believe you are something you quite literally aren't, It is an indication of further troubles under the hood, not a lifestyle. Male and female are not opinions, they are biological reality. To expect everyone else to reaffirm said delusion to make the one with the delusion feel better is horrible advice, medical malpractice, and quite frankly, dangerous. I have dealt with quite a few people with mental illness of varying degrees over the years, you certainly don't pander to it and encourage it, telling them the voices they hear in their heads should be listened to, or the hallucinations they are having are real, this is just encouraging mental illness, not treating it.

3. Simple hard truth, if someone disagreeing with your delusion is a threat to you personally, your problem is you, not them. Holding people hostage to another's twisted desires or delusions on threat of self harm is a confirmation of a severe mental disorder, starting with narcissism.

4. The doctor who developed the first transgender surgeries at John Hopkins later proclaimed it wasn't helping if not outright making things worse, as it was only putting the afflicted in more pain and suffering, and not changing the suicide rate outcome at all, which was already higher than being in a concentration camp in WWII. Performing extensive surgery that has no measurable benefit and high risk of complications is the definition of medical malpractice.

Cutting a persons sex organs off does not turn them into the opposite gender, psychologically, spiritually, or otherwise, never has, never will. It just mutilates the person and further isolates them from the rest of humanity while financially benefiting the monsters that would do such procedures to line their pocketbooks.
