The growing phenomenon of so-called “sexual reassignment surgery” is nothing more or less than a mutilation trend.
Why would anyone want to take part in a mutilation trend? I don’t know the answer to that. All I know is that the rationalizations for doing it are insane. Whether a person is male or female is determined by one’s biology. A male who says he is “really” a woman is delusional. The same is true of a female who says that she is a man. And anyone thinks he can “transition” by means of plastic surgery is also delusional. You’re just mutilated; you’re not the other sex.
Yet more people are doing it! The Daily Mail reports, “First ever data on US transgender surgeries reveals huge surge in demand: Rate of operations skyrocketed 20% in 2015.”
The first ever data on gender reassignment surgeries in the United States shows demand is skyrocketing.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons found a nearly 20 percent increase in vaginoplasties, phalloplasties, top surgery and contouring operations in just the first year of reporting.
In 2016, more than 3,200 surgeries were performed to help transgender patients feel more like themselves.
Surgeons in the field claim that figure is a conservative estimate – and would likely three times higher if all hospitals had a uniform way of documenting such surgeries.
And they believe celebrity transitions have been a driving force in this shift.
‘It’s only in the last couple of years that we’ve seen this dramatic increase in demand for procedures, it’s certainly a subject that’s more talked about,’ Dr Loren Schechter a board-certified plastic surgeon who’s been practicing gender-reassignment surgery for two decades, told Daily Mail Online.
‘It’s really the reason why the society is recognizing and collecting data.
I suspect the real reason is to pressure more insurance companies pay for these operations. That way the mutilation trend can spread.
I think the story is right that “celebrity transitions have been a driving force.” But what kind of people are most affected by celebrity behavior? The young! These would also be the people most likely to feel uncomfortable in their bodies.
The testimony of this young lady is quite sad:
