    Exclamation Trans teens attempt suicide at rates 5x higher than cis-normal teens

    Maybe the problem is normalizing what used to be widely regarded as mentally unhealthy behavior and nothing to be "proud" of.

    There's no question it's physically unhealthy.



    Study: More Than Half of Trans Male Teens Attempt Suicide

    The rate of suicide attempts is alarmingly high for trans girls and nonbinary teens as well, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.

    A new study from the American Academy of Pediatrics shows an alarmingly high rate of suicide attempts among transgender teens, particularly trans boys.

    Nearly 14 percent of all adolescents in the study, “Transgender Adolescent Suicide Behavior,” based on data from “Profiles of Student Life: Attitudes and Behaviors” survey from the Search Institute, reported they had attempted suicide. But 51 percent of transgender males reported at least one attempt, the highest percentage of any gender identity group. The second highest was among nonbinary teens, nearly 42 percent.

    Among transgender females, about 30 percent reported a suicide attempt. The rate was 28 percent for questioning teens, nearly 18 percent for cisgender females, and 10 percent for cisgender males. Data came from more than 120,000 adolescents, age 11 to 19, over three years, June 2012 to May 2015.


    “Identifying as nonheterosexual exacerbated the risk for all adolescents except for those who did not exclusively identify as male or female (ie, nonbinary),” notes an abstract from the study, published in the September issue of the journal Pediatrics. “For transgender adolescents, no other sociodemographic characteristic was associated with suicide attempts.” The sociodemographic characteristics tracked in the study include age, race, sexual orientation, and parents’ level of education.

    The study points up the need to enhance suicide prevention efforts among transgender teens, while being mindful of variability within this population, the study’s authors concluded.

    The Human Rights Campaign concurred, having found similar trends in its 2018 LGBTQ Youth Report. “These harrowing statistics lay bare the urgency of building welcoming and safe communities for LGBTQ young people, particularly for transgender youth,” said a statement released by Ellen Kahn, the HRC Foundation's director of children, youth, and families programs. “The distressing reality reflected in this study is preventable, and our nation's schools, political leaders, and communities can take concrete steps to combat this epidemic. HRC will continue to work with schools, faith communities, health care facilities, policy-makers, and families to ensure that LGBTQ youth are able to live full, healthy lives.”

    The full study in Pediatrics is available to subscribers only, but the abstract can be viewed here.

    If you are a trans or gender-nonconforming person considering suicide Trans Lifeline can be reached at (877) 565-8860. LGBTQ youth (ages 24 and younger) can reach the Trevor Project Lifeline at (866) 488-7386. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at (800) 273-8255 can also be reached 24 hours a day by people of all ages and identities.

    They don't normalize it, they glorify it. It's a world gone mad.

    “These harrowing statistics lay bare the urgency of building welcoming and safe communities for LGBTQ young people, particularly for transgender youth,”
    Wrong. It show what a horrible failure this whole "movement" is. Quit creating something so unnatural.

    Send Those Who Question Transgenderism to Gulags, Says Student LGBT Group

    https://www.breitbart.com/london/201...nt-lgbt-group/

    12 Sep 20181,120
    A leftist student group defended Stalin’s Gulag labour camps Tuesday, calling them more “compassionate” than the “western, capitalist notion of prison”.
    The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, ***** Plus Society at London’s Goldsmiths University suggested people who question transgenderism are sent to such camps, for up to ten years, for “re-education”.

    “The ideas of [Trans exclusive radical feminists] and anti-Trans bigots literally *kill* and must be eradicated through re-education,” the student group wrote on Twitter before deleting their account.

    When Claire Graham, a special education needs teacher, asked if their attempts to silence a list of academics who questioned transgenderism was “a bit fascist”, the account replied: “Na, we’ll just arrange to send you to the Gulag.”

    Gulags were brutal labour camps used by Stalin’s Soviet dictatorship to lock up opponents and “enemies of the state”, resulting in the death of an estimated 1.05 million people.



    The Twitter account claimed the CIA had spread “lies” about the Gulag system, adding:

    “First myth to debunk: ‘u work until u die in Gulags!’ The Soviets did away with life sentences and the longest sentence was 10 years. Capital punishment was reserved for the most heinous, serious crimes.

    “The penal system was a rehabilitatory one. The aim was to correct and change the ways of criminals.”

    It added: “Much like wider Soviet society, everyone who was ‘able’ to work did so at a wage proportionate to those who weren’t incapacitated and, as they gained skills, were able to move up the ranks and work under less supervision.

    “Educational work was also a prominent feature of the Soviet penal system. There were regular classes, book clubs, newspaper editorial teams, sports, theatre and performance groups.”

    "Science must be de-colonised and de-essentialised in order for this to happen".

    Allow me to translate:

    Science is racist, sexist and homophobic.

    Correct answers to math and science questions are white supremacy.

    2+2 = whatever you want it to be.

    These people are poison and if anybody should be dragged off to gulags, it is them.

    They will, quite literally, throw us into a new dark age of primitivism.

    And we'll end up waiting another 1000 years to get off this rock.

    That sounds like our local Che lover.

    It's not surprising. If some guy is having mental issues the last thing they need is to have female hormones thrown into the mix. It may sound like I am trying to be funny, but think about it.

    Have they ever thought of treating male testosterone with... Testosterone? Seriously, these medical dolts think that the way to treat low testosterone is to give the patient estrogen.

    Much like Alex Jones, AF only reviews those sites to read the articles.

    These threads make me think AF's Mel Gibson avatar should be Mad Max. He'd relate to Road warrior I think.

    This belongs here.



    Most transgenders are suffering from untreated co-morbid mental illnesses and sometimes when those are treated the desire to change genders goes away. They need help. Instead they get scorn from the right and patronage from the left. Those in the medical community responsible for this travesty will burn in hell for what they have done by making it illegal to treat people with mental illness. (Yes you can lose your medical license if you actually try to help a transgender person).

    Of all people to consider standing their ground on this, RuPaul felt the wrath of this movement for deciding not to have Transitioning people on his show. He tried to compare it to Athletes barred from the Olympics for performance enhancing drugs and because DragQueens by definition aren't supposed to be women(including men reassigned as women).

    RuPaul is not Transgender despite his/her public persona as an entertainer. I think it's possible some of these Teens are Transgender with some kind of Body Dysmorphic condition, but most probably are not and actually just the future RuPauls and putting them through reassignment is a mistake. The latter are confused between these two sides and if they pursue hormones and surgery, may wind up full of regret like the person @jmdrake posted after realizing their fantasy has now been made permanent.

    I think the LBGT movement tries to be something positive, but there is a dark over zealous side as well as being quick to anger and I think this is an example. They went from appreciating RuPaul as kind of a sympathetic ambassador to what they're about to practically thinking the LBGT movement collectively owns the show when the show was never intended for this in the first place.

    Transgender women on 'Drag Race'? RuPaul's remarks spawn backlash:
    RuPaul came under fire for saying he would "probably not" include transgender performers who had undergone gender affirmation surgery on his hit VH1 show.

    “Drag loses its sense of danger and its sense of irony once it’s not men doing it, because at its core it’s a social statement and a big f-you to male-dominated culture,” RuPaul said. “So for men to do it, it’s really punk rock, because it’s a real rejection of masculinity.”

    "You can identify as a woman and say you’re transitioning, but it changes once you start changing your body," he said. "It takes on a different thing; it changes the whole concept of what we’re doing."

    The stats are for life time attempts, Suicidality goes down significantly with transition, whether a person is bullied or not. The depersonalisation and dysphoria exists before any therapy or hormones etc.

    If anything less drastic was effective it would be used.

    Also the attempted rate is really fuzzy. Use the completed rate comparative data.
    In New Zealand:
    The Coastguard is a Charity
    Air Traffic Control is a private company run on user fees
    The DMV is a private non-profit
    Rescue helicopters and ambulances are operated by charities and are plastered with corporate logos
    The agriculture industry has zero subsidies
    5% of the national vote, gets you 5 seats in Parliament
    A tax return has 4 fields
    Business licenses aren't even a thing nor are capital gains taxes
    Constitutional right to refuse any type of medical care
