Please dont twist my words KW, I said it is horrible to think like you do — you label an entire segment of the population as mentally ill, then you excuse yourself from the obvious bigotry by declaring that you feel “empathy” for them. How convenient.
I bet you feel the same way about much of the LGBTIQ spectrum.
You are more dangerous than guys like Fred, they are just bigots out of ignorance, but you take the intellectual approach. You’ve put some thought into it. You have a SOLUTION. You suggest it’s possible to cure/nurture/pray away the queer.
Isn’t it possible, just possible that the higher rates of clinical depression & suicide among trans-intersex-questioning are in part due to the constant barrage of discrimination, bullying, rejection & judgment they receive from society, as you amply demonstrate?
