The Damage Done

Over and over again Miz Know It All keeps hearing on Blog-O-Stan how it is way way past time to have the medical community just butt the hell outta all things when it comes to the process of Changing Sex, I mean "Gender!" Other than their being there of course to hand out hormones and surgeries on demand! Sorta like a rather perverse Trick or Treat!

"Trick or Treat! Trick or Treat! Take me willie and make it neat!

For example look at the video of this young person,


One would assume from the tone of this piece she really is all that and a bag chips happy to be in transition  Clearly she  knows exactly what she wants and why! No need for any long drawn out counseling to rule out other issues hiding behind her "gender problems" on this one is there? Besides, she has been online for a long long time before she even sought out any sort of actual therapy. So all the hard work was done and done long ago by all those wonderful anon-supporters cheering her on. Clearly as I said, there was no therapist needed! Blog-O-Stan is right I guess! We should sack the useless bastards! Cause those darn Gate Keepers are just an impediment to our rightful gender expression!

Oh but how things turn out when the blind and foolish rush in where angels fear to tread!



From an an article on the Sunday Mirror UK

Although Ms Cooper underwent a thorough psychological assessment and counseling at Hull Royal Infirmary prior to starting her sex change therapy she has suffered such torment living as a women that she has tried to commit suicide twice.

She told told the Sunday Mirror: ‘The hormones have made me feel up and down. One minute I feel moody and the next minute I feel really happy.’

‘The night I tried to slash my wrists I’d downed a bottle of Jack Daniel’s and just thought about how alone I am, and how my decision has alienated my family and how I will have to become a boy again to resolve it.’

Born a male called Brad, Ms Cooper began dressing as a girl aged 12, and at 15-years-old begged doctors to help her become a woman.

But she has failed to find happiness as a female, even admitting to dabbling in prostitution in an attempt to counteract the loneliness she felt .

Ms Cooper also says the hormone injections left her with extreme emotions and a high sex drive, but that she can not find the love she craves with either sex.

She believes she will have better luck in love as a 'trendy' gay man, and that returning to being a male will help heal the damaged relationships with her family.
 

‘I don’t want to live in isolation, away from everyone I love. This is the only way forward. I just want to be happy and this is my last chance.’

News flash folks! Having a sex change fixes exactly one thing and one thing alone... it fixes absolutely nothing else in your life period! For all those out there in Blog-O-Stan with unhappy lives who feel this sigh of relief about the other problems in their lives when they go out enfemm and so are wondering if maybe they are transsexual too? Wondering if maybe they too should consider going whole hog and taking the plunge to "Living as a Woman?"

Here this and hear it well! Transition is a one way street that should be taken ONLY by those for whom the idea of their living straddling the fence between a mind configured one way and a body configured the other is simply unworkable! For all others, this path should NEVER even be considered, much less taken... You do know there is a damned good reason they call it "a woman's lot in life" and if you are not a woman, then you so don't want to be finding this out the hard way as this poor soul has what that means! Nor do you want to be coming to the same rude surprise she had that all the other problems in her life were still there if not bigger!

So how do we go about figuring this one out? Surprise! In depth therapy with a very well trained specialist might just do the trick eh? One who has actually seen those oh so rare type VI's for whom this is clearly the right path, (which she is not by the way) as well as one who has a better than good understanding of those V's for whom this is not their path until there are no other options left as well as one who has the strength to say no to those IV's for whom this is never the right path! That's right campers... the oh so dreaded SOC really is there to protect you from yourself and no other reason!

So to all of you I say, Keep on mucking about getting these requirements diminished if not removed all together if you like and as the Jewish Curse says. "You might just get what you are asking for!"

  1. I watched the video and I must say it made me really sad. Toward the end you could really see the difference between Ria and her publisher friend.
    A big contrast between a successful transition and one that is stillborn.

    All the more reason the system as it was a couple of decades ago was good for all of us.

  2. "it fixes absolutely nothing else in your life period!"

    That's it, isn't it. This is tragic....

    I guarantee you, whatever else is going on, that this "only way forward - last chance" ultimatum is the so-called "parents'" words, not Cooper's. That kind of parenting will f*ck a kid up good. Could be Cooper's a TG train wreck, that's one possibility. Looking at those carefully-sculpted eyebrows - strange thing for a detransitioner to spend time on, that - I get to thinking of others.

    I wonder, if you had a girl, and raised her from birth to believe she wasn't a girl, and told her you wouldn't love her anymore and would stop being her mom if she ever decided she really was a girl, and then sent her to go play with the Colleen Francises of the world the day she was old enough, what would she look like at 20? And if she liked boys, would she be willing to agree to the "can't you just be gay?" bargain to avoid being cold and hungry and alone on the street? Would she be willing to go to the papers with it?

  5. Either way NYF, the point made is a good one. The SOC's of old made sense.

    Without them,you get the current chaotic state of affairs where "anything goes" and women are stuck with it

  6. I completely agree.

  7. Funny thing, but over and over, I read stories from people about how much trouble they have had since transitioning. About how much prejudice they encounter, and about how they have had all these horrible problems. In many cases, their lives post-teansition sound an awful lot like mine was before. On the other hand, when I transitioned, I started on a Monday with my name change, got my paperwork done on Tuesday, and on Wednesday I was hired, as a woman, at the first place I applied. I was more successful at that job than any before, and I have been quite successful since. I am a lot happier, and even more so since my surgery. I do wonder why some seem to have no comprehension that maybe their transition was a major mistake. Especially the ones who had long, happy careers as men, and who are now struggling, and complaining about life as a woman. But then again, they seem to think having problems is part of being a woman...masochism anyone?

    But, the really scary thing is, if they had the misfortune to have their surgery handed to them on a platter, they might actually go for it, and then another tragic mistake would occur. The SOC is a good thing, and it should be strictly enforced.

    Yes, SRS fixes only one thing. But if beginning the process doesn't make some things better, you are probably on the wrong path.

    I'm a little older than twenty (29 now) but I can send you a picture if you'd like? (I wasn't much older when I started though)

    No, I wouldn't be prepared to agree to being gay, (the *other* option is far more preferable in my books, "gay" is not now and never was on the table) but then, as I said, I've got nine years on her, and further, I haven't met too many peope like me.

    And YES! it will fuck a kid up good.

    But you probably aready know that huh ;-P

    as for the eyebrows? maybe it's just me; but I'm not really one for vanity (that could be the life I have to live right now though) so me thinks maybe things aren't as "tough" as they could be for her

  9. Oh, nearly forgot! NO!!! I would not go to the papers under any circumstances.

    Hope that resolves your question/s.
