Transgender, Return to Sender By Mrs Vera West
With all of the debate about same sex marriage and the issue of transgenders, it is relevant to note that there appears to be a rise in the requests for transgender reversal surgery:
“There has been a surge in patients wanting to reverse their transgender surgery, according to a leading doctor in Serbia, the global hub of transgender corrective surgery.
Dr Miroslav Djordjevic, a urologist in Belgrade, has been treating patients from all over the world for about 10 years.
His clinic in the capital of a country that is openly hostile to LGBT groups, became an unlikely haven for transgender patiets. But now, Dr Djordjevic has told The Telegraph that he is seeing an increase in the number of patients seeking reversal surgery.
He warns the majority of people exploring reversals did not receive sufficient psychiatric screening before undergoing the procedure - and he urges the medical community not to antagonize people that change their mind.”
It is, of course, not wise to base conclusions on these revelations alone, but social scientific research on this topic has been regarded as politically incorrect, and is generally not permitted in the university system:
It is important for the welfare of people believing that they are transgender, for all of these issues to be subject to scientific examination:
“‘I AM a non-person, an ‘it’. I have let them mutilate me. Far from solving my problems, the operation has made things worse.’
Sandra, formerly Peter, had a sex-change operation in 1987, when she was 40. At the time of the operation she was having panic attacks and was heavily dependent on tranquillisers. Now she is finally coming off them, an alarming certainty is dawning on her: the surgery should never have taken place.”
Such pain needs to be avoided.
