Transgenders are committing suicide at alarming rates.
The advocates say it is because of bullying.
Researchers who extensively study suicide and its causes say that 90% of all suicides are the result of undiagnosed psychiatric and psychological depressive disorders and/or lack of effective treatment for those who suffer from them.
Whose conclusion would you trust?
Even more puzzling to me is how relentless transgender advocates are in pushing to eliminate psychiatric evaluation and treatment and psychotherapy for transgenders when regular and frequent psychotherapy, in conjunction with some medications, is known to help all forms of depression. And depression is the main factor in the high rate of transgender suicides.
It is maddening. Widely-available, unbiased studies estimate that 30% of transgenders will commit suicide. Yet help is available. Psychotherapy could save the lives of many transgenders. To me it looks a deliberate effort is underway to withhold sound psychotherapy for the transgender population.
Time has come to focus an investigation into why treatment is being withheld and why the advocates stand in the way of diagnosing and treating the depression transgenders report having.
It is time to stop blaming the high rate of suicide on poor acceptability of transgenders, social adaptability in the work place, or families turning their backs on gender changers.
It makes for good media to suggest that bullying drives all transgenders suicides, but that is foolishness. Transgenders need psychotherapy to help them overcome the depression that is a normal part of the radical gender change process.
It is amazing to me how dismissive and silent the media and advocates have become about this astronomical suicide statistic. To me, having 30% of one population who commit suicide is just as alarming as the death rate for AIDS was in the early years. Apparently, transgenders suicides do not warrant a good media headline like AIDS.
