I would have believed it from Breitbart or on a very good day Fox News, but this is MSN!
Hundreds of Young Trans People Seeking Help to Return to Original Sex
From the article:
Last year, she detransitioned and went public with her story - and said she was stunned by the number of people she discovered in a similar position.
"I'm in communication with 19 and 20-year-olds who have had full gender reassignment surgery who wish they hadn't, and their dysphoria hasn't been relieved, they don't feel better for it," she says.
"They don't know what their options are now."
Charlie says she has been contacted by "hundreds" of people seeking help - 30 people alone in her area of Newcastle.
Ruby is now 21 but first began identifying as male at 13.
After taking testosterone her voice got a lot deeper and she grew facial hair. Her body also changed.
She had been planning to have surgery to remove her breasts this summer. However, in May, Ruby voiced the growing doubts she had been harbouring and made the decision to come off testosterone and detransition to identify as female.
"I didn't think any change was going to be enough in the end and I thought it was better to work on changing how I felt about myself, than changing my body," says Ruby.
"I've seen similarities in the way I experience gender dysphoria, in the way I experience other body image issues."
Ruby explains she has also had an eating disorder but she does not feel that issue was explored in the therapy sessions she had when she went to gender identity services.
"When I was at my gender clinic to get referred for hormones, we had a session where I went over my mental health issues and I told them about my eating disorder and they didn't suggest that that could maybe connected with my gender dysphoria," says Ruby.
"For everyone who has gender dysphoria, whether they are trans or not, I want there to be more options for us because I think there is a system of saying, 'okay here's your hormones, here's your surgery, off you go'. I don't think that's helpful for anyone."These are emotionally and mentally sick people who are being treated as if they are physically disabled. It's like performing a lobotomy on someone who suffers from depression. Future generations will consider this every bit as barbaric as lobotomies, or electroshocks, or the other now horrifying practices of earlier generations.
Sadly, the media and academia are entirely on board with this. Or are they? It may be we are seeing green shoots pop up out of the desert here.
Hat tip: John P.
My Dad and I both suffered from a great deal of anger. We did not beat our wives or anything like that. I got in bar fights for a while, but that phase didn't last long. But anger was always there for both of us. Anger management courses did nothing. You know that thing about expressing or "ventilating" your anger? Not only didn't work, it made things worse.
Then one time after I'd been sober a while I was talking with a psychologist about depression. This was not treatment, we were just chatting socially. He commented that I would never describe myself as depressed even if I was. I said that would be dangerous, to be depressed and not know it. I remember his response word for word. "Oh, no, you would manifest it as anger."
That social conversation started me on a journey. Was my anger actually something else disguised as anger? The answer, of course, is not just "yes," but "oh hell yes."
It wasn't depression as it turns out. I no longer have to deal with anger, though and I never dealt with anger. I worked until I found out what my problem was, I dealt with that problem, and the anger melted away.
How many of these poor lost souls who "transgender" ever would be saved a lot of pain if they had the good fortune to run across someone who helped them find out that the shape of their sexual organs was not what was causing them to feel weird?

I had not considered it, but you hit the nail on the head; there is anger that is being misplaced in this issue. There is a kind of self destructive attitude, a sort of suicide of the genitalia here. These people are turning on their sex because they can't get at the root of their anger.
I'm sorry you had to go through so much in your younger days. Alcoholism is such a hard and bitter thing. And it takes a helluva man to defeat it.
