The fear that children will be scared to tell parents or therapists they are considering transitioning, not-transitioning, or changing their gender presentation in any direction is primarily espoused by proponents of Dr. A lawsuit filed by Eduardo Saverin against Facebook and Zuckerberg was settled out of court. This appears to be very beneficial for me. Accomadations offer many choices of hotels and a variety of rentals, condos and cabins.
It makes sense they would see it this way, since their own model relies on emotional coercion to get the behaviors and answers they are looking for. Transition regret is rare. In the context of the BBC program, they provide anecdotal evidence rather than actual evidence from peer reviewed studies. In both the US and the Netherlands, youth who were properly screened, and placed on blockers, had a regret rate of taking blockers that is effectively zero.
In a Dutch study, out of a cohort of 55 only two of the youth dropped out of taking blockers, and neither expressed regret at having taken them. The answer is not to prevent all youth from transitioning, but to work ensure therapists understand how to screen for other conditions. This is the accepted standard for affirming therapists, who screen for other conditions as a normal part of treatment. There does appear to be some statistical link between autism and gender dysphoria.
However, the vast majority of autistic people are not transgender, and the vast majority of transgender people are not autistic. Affirming therapists are well aware of this, and the need to screen for conditions associated with gender dysphoria in youth, including ASD.
In short, the suggestion that the affirming model of therapy ignores autism, or any other potential co-morbidity as a factor, is simply untrue. As a result, Dr.
Affirming therapy has demonstrated highly successful outcomes. A number of recent studies of transgender and gender non-conforming American youth treated under an affirming model have shown excellent outcomes. The youth are both well-adjusted in their gender identification , and in terms of overall mental health. Indeed, one study showed no significant statistical difference between the overall mental health of affirmed transgender youth and in the general population.
Similar outcomes were also observed in Dutch populations. There is no shortage of bad statistics for transgender youth who are not supported. These statistics date back decades, during which time Dr. This begs the question: Zucker is one of the most widely cited figures by anti-LGBT groups because his position that you can change gender identity supports efforts to legitimize reparative therapy on LGBT people, and he has not publicly objected to his views being used to support such.
