    I would think its a problem that still exists and one we should be concerned about.

    But as the article states, people such as yourself refuse to talk about the negative aspects of this surgery, you prefer to sweep it under the rug and pretend it doesn't exist while many of these people suffer every day.

    Very sad.
    Like you actually give a shit?

    It appears many people are simply "talked into" having these feeling that they are the opposite sex and later wish they hadn't done what they did.

    One person interviewed in the Guardian, about reconstructive surgery, and that becomes a "major data point", fail.

    The PhD cited in the article from PsychCom or whatever the webpage with click bait is, has no credentials posted either on ZoomInfo, or Linkdln,

    Interesting.

    So maybe you ought to "vet" the information a little better? afterall you hold several Phd's right? your life should be all about "the vetting"

    Yes, it is a problem..they are misfits in society and people with your attitude scorn them. And pretending you are concerned about the depression is almost comical. The reason that gay people and trans people are depressed is because of the bigotry in the shame that they face. People who are different in negative ways such as obesity etc. suffer from depression

    First of all, not all transgendered people have emotional or physiological problems with their transgenderism.

    Those that do...do so for a whole host of reasons.

    Gender dysphoria is the most serious disorder of those that do have issues with their transgerderism but there are treatments and approved therapy for those individuals.

    Gender dysphoria is a condition where a person experiences discomfort or distress because there's a mismatch between their biological sex and gender identity. It's sometimes known as gender identity disorder (GID), gender incongruence or transgenderism.

    There are also those that experience anxiety with choosing to have surgery or not that has nothing to do with transgenderism.

    And of course the anxiety LGBT face from external forces like you mentioned.

    GENDER DYSPHORIA Development, Research, Management

    \

    FOREWORD
    In the decade-and-a-half since I coedited Transsexualism and Sex Reassignment
    (Green & Money, 1969), remarkable changes have occurred with Harry Benjamin's
    "transsexual phenomenon" (1966). Formerly, when writing about this
    condition in scientific journals, it was necessary to define the term transsexualism.
    Now the lay public recognizes it. Even the American Psychiatric Association
    acknowledges it as a "disorder," with its inclusion in the Third Edition of
    its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (1980). Although this "elevation" to the
    status of mental illness may seem a Pyrrhic victory, it is a recognition of the
    legitimacy of transsexual ism as a source of human suffering.

    The controversy that surrounded the decisions in the early patient cases to
    perform sex-change surgery has largely dissipated. The cries of "collusion with
    delusion," principally from psychoanalysts, have quieted. The dire predictions of
    psychosis and/or suicide following surgery as the "last psychic defenses are cut
    away" have almost never been realized. By contrast, many postoperative patients
    consider the surgery to have been life-saving. Medical centers worldwide have
    incorporated programs for evaluating and treating persons requesting sex reassignment.
    Elaborate guidelines for patient management have been developed by
    an international organization of health care professionals (Harry Benjamin International
    Gender Dysphoria Association, 1981). Harry Benjamin's child has
    come of age.

    Gender Dysphoria: Development, Research, Management is the mark of the
    new status of transsexual ism and sex reassignment. It draws together current
    research, clinical knowledge, psychological theories, and technological skills. Its
    hallmark is expansion beyond the phenomenon of transsexual ism to include
    other gender dysphorias and the interrelationship among several atypical patterns
    of sexuality. However, as the model of conventional sexual identity development
    gone askew, transsexual ism remains exemplary. As such, the text's heritage
    remains with Harry Benjamin.

    Gender Dysphoria will serve as a benchmark for those concerned with
    serving the health needs of persons who feel they have the mind of one gender
    and the body of another sex. To anyone at all curious about how he or she
    developed a sexual identity, a bedrock for all experience, the work with transsexuals
    transcends the plight of this relatively small patient population.

    There is absolutely a high rate of depression and suicide among the transgender population. And while the rate remains high among those who have gone under gender reassignment surgery, the surgery plays a significant role in alleviating gender dysphoria. This doesn't eliminate the risk of depression - but it measurably mitigates it. If you read the actual study, you can confirm this.

    It doesn't "fix" the mental problems that often correlate with gender dysphoria, but it frequently mitigates them.

    It does nothing. Address the mental problems and stop the surgery
