I watched a JRE video with Debra Soh a couple months ago and I remember agreeing with her quite a bit until she got to the point where she was basically like "I'm not attacking the idea that trans people exist, but I'm going to try to invalidate the entire idea that trans people exist." I don't have time to watch the one with Abigail Shrier right now.
When I read your first sentences about the problems girls have, I asure you don't have to watch the lengthly JRE video.
To "invalidate the entire idea" of transexuality not is my wish. I just see the whole Youtube/Instagram world in a rush to modifications of the body. The buds, the non functual mussles, the pierscings and changing faces, looking like cat ...
That is an unholy shitload of missing humility. When I see old actresses that I adored for their beauty in my youth and now I see a face one operating medical doctor thinks is beautiful but it isn't - sad.

I hope some time there is diagnostics in the future to help younger human beings without sending them the wrong path. Some objective diagnostics. But perhaps human beings are so different in their brains individually that such diagnostics cannot be found.

I was born with a birth defect... and I fixed it. Some people have a problem with that, most likely because it forces them to confront ideas they'd rather continue to pretend didn't exist... but if someone has a cleft palate or type 1 diabetes, we wouldn't tell them to just live with it, we'd encourage them to fix it with the best options modern medicine can offer. Even if someone believes that transitioning is pure evil, my transition hurt nobody but "myself."
Yes
