    This story is fucking horrifying. Gender identity disorder is a load of
    shit, you just need to be raised right. If you have a dick, well you’re a
    man, vagina, you’re a woman. If you think otherwise you are delusional?

    “Objective

    To estimate mortality, morbidity, and criminal rate after surgical sex
    reassignment of transsexual persons.

    Design

    A population-based matched cohort study.

    Setting

    Sweden, 1973-2003.

    “The overall mortality for sex-reassigned persons was higher during
    follow-up (aHR 2.8; 95% CI 1.8–4.3) than for controls of the same birth
    sex, particularly death from suicide (aHR 19.1; 95% CI 5.8–62.9).
    Sex-reassigned persons also had an increased risk for suicide attempts (aHR
    4.9; 95% CI 2.9–8.5) and psychiatric inpatient care (aHR 2.8; 95% CI
    2.0–3.9). Comparisons with controls matched on reassigned sex yielded
    similar results. Female-to-males, but not male-to-females, had a higher
    risk for criminal convictions than their respective birth sex controls.

    Conclusions

    Persons with transsexualism, after sex reassignment, have considerably
    higher risks for mortality, suicidal behaviour, and psychiatric morbidity
    than the general population. Our findings suggest that sex reassignment,
    although alleviating gender dysphoria, may not suffice as treatment for
    transsexualism, and should inspire improved psychiatric and somatic care
    after sex reassignment for this patient group.”

    “Principal findings and comparison with previous research

    We report on the first nationwide population-based, long-term follow-up of
    sex-reassigned transsexual persons. We compared our cohort with randomly
    selected population controls matched for age and gender. The most striking
    result was the high mortality rate in both male-to-females and female-to
    males, compared to the general population. This contrasts with previous
    reports (with one exception[8]) that did not find an increased mortality
    rate after sex reassignment, or only noted an increased risk in certain
    subgroups.[7], [9], [10], [11] Previous clinical studies might have been
    biased since people who regard their sex reassignment as a failure are more
    likely to be lost to follow-up. Likewise, it is cumbersome to track
    deceased persons in clinical follow-up studies. Hence, population-based
    register studies like the present are needed to improve representativity.”

    ” describes the risks for selected outcomes during follow-up among
    sex-reassigned persons, compared to same-age controls of the same birth
    sex. Sex-reassigned transsexual persons of both genders had approximately a
    three times higher risk of all-cause mortality than controls, also after
    adjustment for covariates. Table 2separately lists the outcomes depending
    on when sex reassignment was performed: during the period 1973-1988 or
    1989–2003. Even though the overall mortality was increased across both time
    periods, it did not reach statistical significance for the period
    1989–2003. The Kaplan-Meier curve (Figure 1) suggests that survival of
    transsexual persons started to diverge from that of matched controls after
    about 10 years of follow-up. The cause-specific mortality from suicide was
    much higher in sex-reassigned persons, compared to matched controls.
    Mortality due to cardiovascular disease was moderately increased among the
    sex-reassigned, whereas the numerically increased risk for malignancies was
    borderline statistically significant. The malignancies were lung cancer (N
    = 3), tongue cancer (N = 1), pharyngeal cancer (N = 1), pancreas cancer (N
    = 1), liver cancer (N = 1), and unknown origin (N = 1).”

    “Psychiatric morbidity, substance misuse, and accidents

    Sex-reassigned persons had a higher risk of inpatient care for a
    psychiatric disorder other than gender identity disorder than controls
    matched on birth year and birth sex (Table 2). This held after adjustment
    for prior psychiatric morbidity, and was true regardless of whether sex
    reassignment occurred before or after 1989. In line with the increased
    mortality from suicide, sex-reassigned individuals were also at a higher
    risk for suicide attempts, though this was not statistically significant
    for the time period 1989–2003. The risks of being hospitalized for
    substance misuse or accidents were not significantly increased after
    adjusting for covariates (Table 2).

    The poorer outcome in the present study might also be explained by longer
    follow-up period (median >10 years) compared to previous studies. In
    support of this notion, the survival curve (Figure 1) suggests increased
    mortality from ten years after sex reassignment and onwards.”

    “Crime rate

    Transsexual individuals were at increased risk of being convicted for any
    crime or violent crime after sex reassignment (Table 2); this was, however,
    only significant in the group who underwent sex reassignment before 1989.”

    “male-to-females had significantly increased risks for suicide attempts
    compared to both female (aHR 9.3; 95% CI 4.4–19.9) and male (aHR 10.4; 95%
    CI 4.9–22.1) controls. By contrast, female-to-males had significantly
    increased risk of suicide attempts only compared to male controls (aHR 6.8;
    95% CI 2.1–21.6) but not compared to female controls (aHR 1.9; 95% CI
    0.7–4.8). This suggests that male-to-females are at higher risk for suicide
    attempts after sex reassignment, whereas female-to-males maintain a female
    pattern of suicide attempts after sex reassignment (Tables S1 and S2).

    Second, regarding any crime, male-to-females had a significantly increased
    risk for crime compared to female controls (aHR 6.6; 95% CI 4.1–10.8) but
    not compared to males (aHR 0.8; 95% CI 0.5–1.2). This indicates that they
    retained a male pattern regarding criminality. The same was true regarding
    violent crime. By contrast, female-to-males had higher crime rates than
    female controls (aHR 4.1; 95% CI 2.5–6.9) but did not differ from male
    controls. This indicates a shift to a male pattern regarding criminality
    and that sex reassignment is coupled to increased crime rate in
    female-to-males. The same was true regarding violent crime.”

    *****”Mortality from suicide was strikingly high among sex-reassigned
    persons, also after adjustment for prior psychiatric morbidity. In line
    with this, sex-reassigned persons were at increased risk for suicide
    attempts. Previous reports suggest that transsexualism is a strong risk
    factor for suicide, also after sex reassignment, and our long-term findings
    support the need for continued psychiatric follow-up for persons at risk to
    prevent this.”*****

    *****”Inpatient care for psychiatric disorders was significantly more
    common among sex-reassigned persons than among matched controls, both
    before and after sex reassignment. It is generally accepted that
    transsexuals have more psychiatric ill-health than the general population
    prior to the sex reassignment.[18], [21], [22], [33] It should therefore
    come as no surprise that studies have found high rates of depression,[9]
    and low quality of life[16], [25] also after sex reassignment. Notably,
    however, in this study the increased risk for psychiatric hospitalisation
    persisted even after adjusting for psychiatric hospitalisation prior to sex
    reassignment. This suggests that even though sex reassignment alleviates
    gender dysphoria, there is a need to identify and treat co-occurring
    psychiatric morbidity in transsexual persons not only before but also after
    sex reassignment.”*****

    “Criminal activity, particularly violent crime, is much more common among
    men than women in the general population. A previous study of all
    applications for sex reassignment in Sweden up to 1992 found that 9.7% of
    male-to-female and 6.1% of female-to-male applicants had been prosecuted
    for a crime.[33] Crime after sex reassignment, however, has not previously
    been studied. In this study, male-to-female individuals had a higher risk
    for criminal convictions compared to female controls but not compared to
    male controls. This suggests that the sex reassignment procedure neither
    increased nor decreased the risk for criminal offending in male-to-females.
    By contrast, female-to-males were at a higher risk for criminal convictions
    compared to female controls and did not differ from male controls, which
    suggests increased crime proneness in female-to-males after sex
    reassignment.”

    “Strengths of this study include nationwide representativity over more than
    30 years, extensive follow-up time, and minimal loss to follow-up. Many
    previous studies suffer from low outcome ascertainment,[6], [9], [21], [29]
    whereas this study has captured almost the entire population of
    sex-reassigned transsexual individuals in Sweden from 1973–2003. Moreover,
    previous outcome studies have mixed pre-operative and post-operative
    transsexual persons,[22], [37] while we included only post-operative
    transsexual persons that also legally changed sex.”

    “Conclusion

    This study found substantially higher rates of overall mortality, death
    from cardiovascular disease and suicide, suicide attempts, and psychiatric
    hospitalisations in sex-reassigned transsexual individuals compared to a
    healthy control population. This highlights that post surgical transsexuals
    are a risk group that need long-term psychiatric and somatic follow-up.
    Even though surgery and hormonal therapy alleviates gender dysphoria, it is
    apparently not sufficient to remedy the high rates of morbidity and
    mortality found among transsexual persons. Improved care for the
    transsexual group after the sex reassignment should therefore be
    considered.”?

    Samuel 16:7 “The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People
    look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” God knows
    she is a girl in her heart, that’s all that should matter. Have some
    kindness, compassion, and empathy for the fact she is clearly happier as
    girl. Just because you don’t understand something doesn’t mean it is wrong.?

    Body Integrity Identity Disorder is a mental disorder where some seek out
    an amputation of their own limb because they feel like it doesn’t belong to
    them. It’s not a problem with their body, the disorder is in the mind.
    Emotional therapy is required. On the contrary, it would be immoral for a
    doctor to amputate or proceed with physical surgeries in order to feed the
    patients fixation.

    Before I ask my question, you should try to think about what defines a
    male. What makes a person biologically a male. Is it physical or mental.

    PHYSICAL
    If you say it’s physical, then you can stop right here. This boy is a male
    and are only pretending when calling him a ‘she’. BUT could I remove my
    penis and receive chest implants to become female. If so, does that mean if
    I put a man under anesthesia against his will and performed these
    procedures, that they would be classified as female. Logic would say that
    it would just be a man that had his penis removed and silicon implants in
    his chest, but still a man.

    MENTAL
    If you say mental, then can I claim I honestly feel like a woman and then
    be actually defined as a woman. Could I later have a difference of opinion
    and be redefined as a male. Could I then wake up from a car accident in the
    hospital where a doctor wrote male on my chart, and now that I’ve regained
    consciousness, correct the doctor and tell him that I’m actually female.
    How does that work. Logic would say I am a man that has a mental disorder
    that makes me feel like I should be a woman. Or perhaps a feminine male,
    but the key word here is male.

    Those are my two questions…
    1.) Can you define a human male?
    and
    2.) Why would you treat an emotional disorder such as Body Integrity
    Identity Disorder with emotional therapy and claim physical alterations are
    immoral/destructive, and then yet treat another emotional disorder such as
    Transgender Disorder with physical alterations/feeding his fixation and
    claim the opposite, that emotional therapy is immoral/destructive??
