Transsexuals who regret sex change surgery are censored and silenced

Cui bono?

Who stands to gain by silencing the victims of the sex-change racket? In fact, anyone raising doubts about the issue is immediately demonized as “transphobic,” as though the doubter is the one with the problem! I would suggest that there are indeed good reasons for all of us to fear the “experts” who are pushing this agenda!

Who stands to gain by the ongoing public relations juggernaut that works to persuade not only adults, but also impressionable adolescents and children, that they need hormonal and surgical mutilation to treat their emotional distress based upon “gender dysphoria”?

Who stands to gain by destroying the very concepts of what it means to be a man or a woman?

Who stands to lose when the public finally comes to realize that pandering to a mental illness by offering hormonal treatments and sex change surgery does nothing to resolve the patient’s underlying problems, but rather, compounds them?

Trouble In Transtopia: Murmurs Of Sex Change Regret

Transgender people who regret their sex changes typically get buried in venom rather than loved.

Everyone has regrets. Some of us have big regrets. Most everyone has some place to go to get help dealing with them.

Except for, say, a guy who had sex-change surgery and now would like to have his penis back. (The one God gave him.)

Our culture seems pretty much “to each his own” when it comes to elective bodily mutilation and the regret thereof. And there’s a lot of regret out there. According to a British poll, a whopping 65 percent of those who’ve had various cosmetic surgeries regret it. People who regret their tattoos, plastic surgery, or more extreme body modifications (here’s a sad Buzzfeed pictorial on the effects of ear gauges) can read up on the Internet and find an open array of remedies. Plastic surgeons make money both puttin’ it in and takin’ it out.

Hollywood stars can speak openly about misgivings over their boob jobs and whatnot. Regarding her lip enhancement surgery, Courtney Love said: “I just want the mouth God gave me back.”

But the difference between Love and the guy with phantom penis syndrome is that the guy isn’t allowed to talk about his regret. Not openly. The transgender lobby actively polices and suppresses discussion of sex-change regret, and claims it’s rare (no more than “5 percent.”) However, if you do decide to “de-transition” to once again identify with the sex in your DNA, talking about it will get you targeted by trans activists. So it’s a challenge to understand the scope of regret for sex change surgery. It’s out there, but…

‘It’s Genital Mutilation’

Let’s start with Alan Finch, a resident of Australia who decided when he was 19 to transition from male to female, and in his 20s had genital surgery. But then, at age 36, Finch told the Guardian newspaper in 2004:

. . . transsexualism was invented by psychiatrists. . . .You fundamentally can’t change sex … the surgery doesn’t alter you genetically. It’s genital mutilation. My ‘vagina’ was just the bag of my scrotum. It’s like a pouch, like a kangaroo. What’s scary is you still feel like you have a penis when you’re sexually aroused. It’s like phantom limb syndrome. It’s all been a terrible misadventure. I’ve never been a woman, just Alan . . . the analogy I use about giving surgery to someone desperate to change sex is it’s a bit like offering liposuction to an anorexic.

Finch went on to sue the Australian gender identity clinic at Melbourne’s Monash Medical Center for misdiagnosis. He also was involved in starting an outreach to others called “Gender Menders.” The reaction from the transgender community was fast, furious, and abusive, particularly in the Susans.org discussion forum as described in Sheila Jeffrey’s book, “Gender Hurts.”

Since then, Finch’s outreach website has been archived and there is no further information online. In fact, Finch’s subsequent silence is the norm for those who change their minds. This is perhaps not surprising, given the vigor and vindictiveness of the transgender community in persecuting those who have the temerity to suggest that all is not well in sexual La-La Land. But if you look you can find rogue headlines every now and then that even Hollywood’s fawning over “all things trans” can’t quite control. There’s much evidence that the carefully crafted pictures of transgender “authenticity” and “happiness” are more fiction than fact.

If someone is foolish enough to fake being a woman to legitimize their same gender relationship its their own dang fault for undergoing surgery. People haft to learn to live with their own choices rather than blaming others for them. How selfish can he get putting down the entire transgender community on account of his own personal mistake. For those of us who are truly transgender its not mutilation its correcting a genetic defect that’s all. By the way comparing skin paint with a major surgery like gender reassignment is ridiculous at best. Seriously adults need to stop acting like spoiled brats by blaming everyone but themselves for their own personal choices be they good or foolish.

@ Haruka Tenou,

The individual you mentioned has every right to express his opinions and regrets, and he is not “putting down the entire transgender community” by voicing a different opinion than that which you currently hold. In a few years, you may find yourself experiencing those regrets yourself.

There is no known gene or combination of genes that gives rise to gender dysphoria.
