I mentioned before how I know a few who transitioned and also who plan to. When I asked about things I made sure they are ok with questions. I also looked videos from trans about their experience and process. Though happened to female to male so... limited know. I digged into some physical aspects as well as options. That came from another issue regarding trans which I may not mention to not spark another debate lol. I linked a studie regarding suicide as well. How unique challenges for trans increase suicide and care, support, transition etc. help to combat suicide rate.Keane wrote: ↑Sat Nov 14, 2020 9:19 am I guess between Biden and Trump sure, I think it's better that Biden won? I think he'll be marginally better on a few issues and it's also just funny to watch Trump eat shit, I'm really glad I don't have to spend another four years thinking about him. But I'm not naive enough to believe a Biden administration is going to oversee any kind of significant or long-lasting positive change, it's probably just gonna be more austerity and liberal cultural posturing that could very well lead to another Trump-like figure being elected in a couple years.How many of you actually know any trans people on a personal level, or would consider yourself well-versed on these issues? Not that these are prerequisites for having an opinion about it, but some of the posts here come off genuinely clueless about the most basic experiences of trans people.RaymanPC wrote:"Transgenders"
I'm too lazy to pull up a bunch of studies to get the exact numbers and I don't really care, but it's absurd to me that anyone would fall for this crappy talking point promoted by the scummiest media rags that actually trans people are just in masses killing themselves because of transition procedures (that the vast, vast majority of trans people report as improving their lives), and not because of the obviously bad conditions they face. You have to pretty much know nothing about trans people to even entertain the idea.
That's my background on the topic. I'm in places of high diversity and people who like to dig into essentially every topic.
