Having had a best friend who out of the blue decided he wanted to be a girl instead, I have reason to believe that gender dysphoria is pretty closely linked to a plethora of other mental disorders, since he'd been fucked up in the head in several other ways- compulsive liar, attention-deficit, histrionic, etc.. Basically, I consider it taking the easy way out to just get surgery to turn yourself into a girl with non-working girl parts, as a means to fix a more underlying problem. It would be one thing if suicide rates weren't astronomically high for post-ops, but they are.>>79147969
The comparison I was trying to make is that one of those things is a clearly insane and damaging procedure for a problem that only exists within the sufferer's mind, that any reputable doctor would NOT allow under any circumstances. The other thing is an insane and damaging procedure for a problem that only exists within the sufferer's mind that is apparently encouraged and celebrated.
I guess a better comparison to make would be in regards to that guy who believed he was a cat and got countless plastic surgery operations to appear that way; but then, that's all it is, plastic surgery, not 6 months to a few years of total hormone imbalancement followed by genital surgery.
