Transgenderism: A Rejection Of Reality

I have a theory that I think will explain a lot of the problems we have as millennials today. For a number of reasons, millennials have gotten to the point where they have rejected reality, in numbers far surpassing any previous generation. When you cannot grasp reality, then your perception of the world becomes unstable. You can pretend that you understand life, and you can attempt to make some sort of a structure to support your warped perceptions, but that will inevitably lead you to madness.

Somewhere deep in your subconscious, you will understand that how you are acting and what you are doing is wrong. What happens when your mind cannot feel secure in this world? The torment becomes unbearable. Your detachment from reality leads you to seek the one thing that might end the falsehoods, and that is death. According to the CDC, suicide rates in the past 15 years have increased 24% from 10.5 to 13 per 100,000 with a greater pace increase after 2006. The same study also shows that these numbers will continue to climb if we don’t immediately give these people the help that they desperately need.

While I believe this trend is growing among millennials, we must identify the type of millennial that this is most prevalent in, because it certainly isn’t all of them. Those people are the transgenders, 41% of which attempt to commit suicide, according to USA Today.

Why is that? You may say that these people don’t feel comfortable in their own bodies, and you’d be right. They have mental disorders that are causing them to think that they are a man inside of a woman’s body, vice-versa, or any number of the infinite combinations that have contorted the reality of the only true sexes: man and woman.

Adults and institutions have long placated to them because we are compassionate beings. We don’t want others to hurt themselves, and we have tried to make qualifiers so that our own reality can exist at the same time as theirs, but the two are fundamentally different and therefore incompatible. To say anything otherwise would be to deny own biology. If you are transgender and you wish to act that way, we have no problem with you acting and dressing the way you want to.

My worry is that our compassionate nature as humans has allowed us to become blinded in infinitely complex theories that cannot possibly be navigated since they are at their core, WRONG! We are not fixing the problem, we are only making it worse and further encouraging it.

Some of you reading this may agree that transgenderism is a mental disorder and that the best way we can help these people feel more comfortable is by giving them a sex change operation. Unfortunately, that is not the case.

In the 1970s, John-Hopkins University performed a study to compare the outcomes of transgendered people who had the surgery with the outcomes of those who did not. According to the study, “Most of the surgically treated patients described themselves as “satisfied” by the results, but their subsequent psycho-social adjustments were no better than those who didn’t have the surgery. And so at Hopkins we stopped doing sex-reassignment surgery, since producing a “satisfied” but still troubled patient seemed an inadequate reason for surgically amputating normal organs.”

Paul McHugh, in a Wall-Street Journal op-ed, expands these findings with those of another study:

It now appears that our long-ago decision was a wise one. A 2011 study at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden produced the most illuminating results yet regarding the transgendered, evidence that should give advocates pause. The long-term study—up to 30 years—followed 324 people who had sex-reassignment surgery. The study revealed that beginning about 10 years after having the surgery, the transgendered began to experience increasing mental difficulties. Most shockingly, their suicide mortality rose almost 20-fold above the comparable nontransgender population. This disturbing result has as yet no explanation but probably reflects the growing sense of isolation reported by the aging transgendered after surgery. The high suicide rate certainly challenges the surgery prescription.

 

These long-ignored findings tell us that the current liberal perceptions towards transgenderism are not only wrong, but also detrimental to those who suffer from this condition. We know the truth, and as Ben Shapiro says—facts don’t care about your feelings. Supporting their imagination is doing far more harm than good.

    If we’re really going to stop people from identifying as transgender in favor of classifying it as a mental disorder, then what are we going to do with all the conservatives?

    I’m no expert, but I’m gonna take a wild guess and assume that the reason most aren’t satisfied with their sex change operation is because as a whole this society refuses to accept them for who they are. Maybe that’s just me…

    • Or because the psychological problems persist and the surgery did nothing to solve the fundamental issue. Perhaps this is more like schizophrenia or anorexia in how it should be treated.

  4. Why not educate yourself for once and take the Intro to Gender and Sexuality Studies that RWU offers. Because according to this article you need it.

    Also, using dated studies in an article as a reference (especially one over 50 years old) is not good Journalism. Rule of thumb if it isn’t acceptable as a creditable source for a college paper, it’s not a creditable source for an online article.

    • Modern gender studies courses promote radical leftist theory that is in complete contradiction with known biological facts of gender (species dimorphism, developmental hormones, sexual selection, X and Y chromosomes, etc). They’ve walled themselves off from the hard sciences and thus aren’t willing to truly consider transgenderism from the position of the medical condition that it is, and thus to find a way of truly helping people. Anyone who hasn’t studied a ton of biology related to this topic has no place insulting anyone – including the author of this article.

  5. What are we to do with the fact that, as of the mid-2000s, scientists had found LGBT traits in 1500 species? One example: http://www.news-medical.net/news/2006/10/23/1500-animal-species-practice-homosexuality.aspx. The studies have often shown how the LGBT characteristics have been integral to those species’ functions and flourishing.
