Higher Suicides Among Transgender Community

new study out of Denmark finds that transgender individuals have “significantly higher rates of suicide attempts.”

This will probably be used by trans rights advocates to assert that trans kids have a higher risk of suicide if they are not affirmed. In fact, this shows the opposite. It shows that people who DO live an affirmed life still have a high risk of suicide. Not affirming gender does not decrease this risk.

This tracks with data that shows that people who transition still have gender dysphoria.

Meanwhile, GLAAD has published an open letter signed by all manner of celebrities to speak out on behalf of transgender medicalization. Signers include Camila Cabello, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande and the famous-for-being-famous Dylan Mulvaney. The letter demands that platforms censor “content that spreads malicious lies about medically necessary healthcare for trans youth.” It says that “inflammatory disinformation falsely asserting that this healthcare is dangerous is allowed to fester on your platforms because it drives clicks and profit.”

By healthcare, they mean body mutilation such as breast, penis, testicle, and uterus removal, puberty blockers, and cross-sex hormones. This is dangerous. I will say it while I still can.
