Not that you stated you believe it, but just to be clear, it's a myth that the suicide rate is still extremely high for trans people who have transitioned. You should know that this is from a purposely misrepresented study and spread by an anti LGBT hate group. Unfortunately these lies were picked up and spread by the media.
The infamous 40% statistic is specifically referring to lifetime risk, without regards to whether the patient attempted suicide before or after transition.
When looking at studies that do distinguish between suicide attempts before vs. after transition, we see that nearly all of these attempts happen before. After transition, the rate of suicide attempts drops to around the national average. This is very literally life saving medical treatment.
Transition vastly reduces suicide risk. The farther along in transition a trans person is, the lower the suicide risk becomes. After transition, and when spared discrimination and abuse, the rate of suicide attempts among trans people people are about the same as the national average. The ability to transition, along with family and social acceptance, are the largest factors reducing suicide risk among trans people. There are a lot of studies showing that transition improves mental health and quality of life while reducing dysphoria.>>3331870
For future reference the preferred term is "transgender" because "sexual" implies that being trans is a sexual preference like being homosexual when in most cases it is not.
