Yes. Mainly because I rightfully dont believe a word coming out of your mouth and this does not go nearly far enough to disprove decades of good results coming from gender affirming care.
What people like you appear incapable of realizing is that gender affirming care has been going on for a while, in-spite of what you believe having only heard about it yesterday from Fox News and subsequently a lot of study and data has been collected regarding it ever since which faaaaaaar outweighs this to the point where this is but a statistical anomaly that can be dismissed as such.4
What Girls & Guys Said
It's a hard thing on them but they will never be the gender they desire regardless of the plastic surgery, drugs and hormone replacement therapy they get. They should start looking at what causes gender dysmorphia and nip it in the bud, could be as simple as the fluoride in the water.319
I assume that "gender affirming care" is a euphemism for medical treatment.
Any kind of dysphoria is a mental problem and should be treated as such.
Did Michael Jackson's continual plastic surgery cure his body dysphoric condition? No. It was just an opportunity for plastic surgeons to make piles of money.
All those, especially medical professionals, who subscribe to the idea that a person can physically change their gender through drugs and surgery are either opportunists or as mentally disturbed as the people for whom they advocate. They cause harm and should be criminalized.
Those who attempt to twist children's minds by exposing them to perversion and confusion about their genders should also be criminalized.
STOP normalizing and encouraging gender dysphoria!
As much as I respect people that come forward with it, I never thought it was a good practice, anyway. They still don't have the ability to recreate the uterus and everything to turn them into a woman or the facilities to make a fully functional make reproductive system. It isn't like science fiction where they can turn you into a woman and have you be able to make life. A trans woman still needs to get a prostate exam20
Its really interesting can't find the original study which is annoying tho12
Funny the studies I see don’t show that. But I guess we’ll wait for scientific consensus…
Never even heard the term "gender affirming care" before, sometimes it feels like some of society lives on an entirely different world.
Gender dysphoria I've heard of. People who have sex change surgery are dumb.10
Surgery for this issue really scares me. So I’m not surprised if the link is factual and correct.10
I'm not surprised. Now to bring criminal charges against those doctors who performed surgeries and prescribed hormones to children.30
I still think people just feel like something is wrong and jump to the easiest conclusion.
Was your mom a bitch, did your dad rape you? Disregard that, the problem is not having a dick.10
Nope, I don't believe in gender affirming.10
I don't know what Gender Affirming Care is but it sounds like bs.10
Still? I never did and never will.10

I think it would be interesting to know where the surgery is being conducted, and how it's being conducted. As it stands, I think that's probably the most convincing conservative study on the matter that I've seen, but I don't think we can can conclusively say that it does nothing. Certainly, it doesn't seem to be doing any additional harm given that the outcomes seem to be the same anyway. I would hazard a guess that as medical care improves, you might start to see that reverse a bit.
Part of the problem is that surgery is done post-puberty, and the techniques are incredibly crude. If your choices are between looking like the wrong sex vs looking like a sexless mutilated body, you won't have a positive mental health outcome in that person. Again though, if cutting your dick off DOESN'T worsen your mental health, than it would seem as though the dick cutting is irrelevant, and at the very least satisfies a short term desire.
Man, I just don't think mutilating someone to satisfy their body dysmorphia is the right way to go. We don't entertain people who want to be amputated or who want to look like foxes this way.
That's just my view though, thanks for looking at the study.
