By TylerR Mar 28 2018 Transgender PoliticsBilly is not the first who turned to a transgender identity to escape pain and trauma. It’s time for psychotherapists to seriously address the unique causes of each individual’s gender dysphoria before encouraging them to pursue hormones and surgery. 1387 reads There are 5 Comments Praise God Bert Perry - Wed, 03/28/2018 - 8:27am For the repentance, and witness, of men like Walt Heyer.

Huh, someone here on Sharperiron disliked your praising God for a testimony of repentance from sin and a ruined life finding redemption in Jesus Christ. Who'd have thought? Seems like you gored someone's ox in the alcohol debate... Dislike John E. - Wed, 03/28/2018 - 11:06am Andrew beat me to it, but I was going to comment on how you (Bert) seem to have an SI stalker who dislikes your comments. I'm wondering if you're not the dislike champion here. If so, keep up the good work. Bert’s Stunning Intellect and Someone May Not Like it Joeb - Wed, 03/28/2018 - 1:09pm When you're fast on your feet as Bert and as knowledgeable you may step on a few toes. Bert stepped on mine in the past and I deserved it. In fact I deserved to be stomped on by Bert. He is the one who changed my whole outlook about Fundamentalism. Back to the subject... Bert Perry - Wed, 03/28/2018 - 4:11pm ...or else I'm going to need to buy new hats! Very seriously, I encourage all to take a good luck at Walt Heyer's websites, because he's got a compelling story and a lot of good data. He also links the stories of others, including (tellingly IMO) a number of people who have de-transitioned as well, including at least two men who learned to their horror that taking female hormones threw them for a loop in terms of moods. Chew on that one for a while. Is nobody paying attention to an obvious consequence of taking female hormones? And nobody's picked up on the fact that their moods are being thrown for a loop without the "monthly visitor"? Couple that with the 20% suicide rate and 20% reversal rate, and I dare suggest psychologists need to admit there's a bit of something they don't know about this condition. To be honest, I'm kinda surprised there aren't stories of a victim of this kind of psychology acting out against others instead of against himself. Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
