Jesus.

Can't you find something important to get upset about?
Why is it that pretty much anything to do with human sexuality freaks out and/or obsesses RW conservatives?
I've never completely understood that.

At the root of your reply, are you trying to insinuate we should be okay with people being miserable and not being helped if they are a small enough group?

And your response is an attempt to be naively ignorant on the situation.
For a different example, approximately 0.7% of the population is in a wheelchair. "not even 1% of the population"

Yet we have requirements in various areas for wheelchair ramps.

If right-wingers were to adopt the same level of hysteria regarding wheelchairs, they would start proclaiming that people will WANT to become wheelchair bound because it's a fad.
WHY should we have to adapt to the wheelchair population?
We shouldn't pretend it's "normal". Putting in wheelchair ramps is a step of "normalizing" something that should be considered as a defect!

< end rant >


So while I understand why you want to adopt a myopic filter to pretend your response is rational, it's really missing the point of tristanrobin's commentary.
We get that you think your hysteria is justified.
But when compared to other issues, it's really not...

It's a subject that they typically revert to the "but our religion told us that it was / should be this way, so we've gotta be right" type mentality, even if they can't admit that's the justification.

I've come across so many people who refuse to recognize transgenderism is even real. Their beliefs incorporate a god. And they can't fathom how this god would have made people "transgender".
Ergo, they insist he didn't... Or at least try to blame the people who are affected by transgender for the situation itself.
It's a bit like blaming the cancer patient for contracting cancer and then denigrating his attempts to improve his situation...
Thanks from Hollywood

Yes, but they are "all the rage" right now. I'm not sure if they have a flag you can display yet.

Do you have any recognition that you are conflating issues together when there is no evidence they should be?
This thread is about child abuse with regards to transgender treatment. And you blindly quote numbers for sex change operations with no regards to the age of the patient.

Let me ask you a simple question.
HOW MUCH of that is solely for people under the age of 16?

I am not sure. Thats my point as I have shown links to over and over in this thread. The under 16 market is expanding and its also got the added benefit of hormone blockers to suppress puberty, which means that sex organs do not develop. So, no there is nothing blind about it. I have shown that in Thailand alone, its an over 4 billion dollar a year market. I have demonstrated that in the west, its being expanded to children as young as 6. These are facts I have demonstrated. Y
