I was born a male, Walt, became Laura the transgender, and after 8 years returned to my true male identity. I have now been Walt for more than 17 years.
When I was young, 5 years old or so, my grandmother secretly dressed me in female clothing. My father, when he learned of this, became very upset at grandma. My uncle teased me and fondled me when he found out I was cross-dressing. My mother who was very young herself dished out heavy doses of discipline and I did not feel loved by her.
I and many others who have undergone the so-called "sex change" eventually came to regret it. Why? Well, after spending years living as the opposite gender regretters like myself came to understand that a real gender change is impossible. I learned from personal experience that transgenders are living their life acting out a full blown psychological mental disorder, a "psychosis" in their thinking, and mistakenly feeling they really have changed genders.
A "psychosis" is defined this way: a type of serious mental illness in which a person cannot tell what is real from what is imagined. The main feature of this disorder is the believing in something that just cannot be true.
It would be intellectually dishonest to turn our backs on the fact that the issues that drive transgenders to cross dress in public and undergo radical even destructive irreversible surgery evolve from one or more serious unresolved psychological disorders. This truth is scorned because it is difficult to embrace or digest with all the "enablers" such as lawmakers and "co-dependents" such as LGBT activists who refuse to acknowledge reality.
Here it is, the truth, and if you do not get it consider that you live in the land of Oz.
It is scientifically, medically and surgically impossible to change genders. We can no longer ignore the truth of the unresolved psychological and psychiatric issues that drive transgenders. I needed psychological help and others with gender confusion need psychological help, not expanded "freedoms."
Sure, the feelings were very strong but so is truth. I only wish someone would have sat me down prior to surgery and said it is impossible for surgery to change your gender. That would have been far more humane than sending me on a pathway to unnecessary surgery that removed good functioning body parts.
There are many who want to enforce denial of the truth in the form of "sensitivity and other training." But schools are not helping kids or families when in the name of "antidiscrimination" they suggest to children that gender fluidity is healthy. A growing number of children will ultimately be found suffering from psychological and psychiatric disorders because they were encouraged to go down a path of confusion just like I was.
