There is nowhere near enough evidence to show that gender dysphoria (GD) - and resulting trans-ID - is a biologically-based neurophysiological condition. GD is diagnosed solely by the youth’s self-report. -PhD Scientist #ROGDWEEK2018
Functional MRI studies have been limited to adults, most living opposite their birth sex for many years and who have been taking cross sex hormones for many years. Studies are conflicting and only some show minute differences that could easily be explained by ...
personality variance (including GNC behavior), homosexual preferences and/or are the result of neuroplasticity over many years in concert with pharmacological and surgical therapies. None of the results can possibly point to neurodevelopmental deviations in utero to explain TG-ID
Any research results suggesting the developmental hypothesis of "transgender" are called BASIC RESEARCH and preliminary speculation and have no basis to inform medical treatment of youth. #ROGDWEEK2018
If you think there is enough clinical evidence supporting affirmation therapy of trans-identifying youth with no history of GD, you are not ethically evaluating the incredible deficiency in available scientific information. #ROGDWEEK2018
The distorted mantra that a parent must ‘choose between medical transition or a
dead child’ is based on the Williams Institute survey, which reported that 41%
of the transgender and gender non-conforming (GNC) adults studied had reported an attempted suicide during their lifetime
It is an unfounded speculation to use this study result to claim that youth are
more likely to attempt suicide if they don’t transition. There is no demonstrated cause-effect relationship between not transitioning and suicide attempts. The study doesn't even say if suicide..
attempt was b4 or after transition. Gay youth show similar suicide rate: in a
Nationwide survey conducted by the CDC, 42.8% of gay, lesbian, or bisexual
students had seriously considered attempting suicide during the 12 months
before the survey, compared with 14.8% of heteros
No ethical person would suggest we convert gay youth - why are we converting trans-ID youth? To make them straight? Is that easier than being gay? We need to encourage critical thought and ethical decisions. #ROGDWEEK2018
