Some people seem to believe that gender correction is about waking up the night after a drag show and calling to schedule surgery the day after. The process is of course not the same in every country, but I believe it shouldn't be vastly different (except for the fact that some countries still require sterilization before gender correction surgery). This is roughly the process is in an European country.

The first year, no transition is made at all. The first year is all about investigation in the social & psychological situation of the person in question, psychological tests, health check-ups, etc. The only treatment that can be given during this year is support from a therapist or similar. No diagnose is given at this point.

The second year, some treatment is initiated, but there are still much investigative moments left in the process. For example the person is expected to start living like he or she will be living after the transition. This is often before any hormone treatment or similar is given. When a specialized team of doctors and psychologists consider it likely that the person in question will actually transition, hormone treatment is initiated, together with speech therapy and body hair removal (for male-to-female). After this, the patient is "diagnosed" with being transgender.

After two years, it's possible to apply for a legal gender change and permission from state authorities to go through with gender correction surgery. Note that it's only possible to apply for permission, not that surgery will instantly be granted. No earlier than two and a half years, the legal gender can be changed. And no earlier than three years, the patient can undergo the first correctional surgery. Transitioning completely probably takes a lot longer than that. Oh, and you also have to be 18.

I'm not transgender myself so somebody that has personal insight might want to correct some facts that might be wrong. Anyway, if you still think it's like removing your arm... well.

Lastly, I don't understand why some people get so annoyed about which gender(s) somebody identifies with, or if they don't identify with any gender at all, or a third gender, or whatever. Even after transitioning, the person in question might not identify 100% with that gender. Why is that so annoying? Gender, like sexuality, is your own business, it does not have anything to do with anybody else. I'm sure you don't think anything is awful about the semi-lesbian inter-bisexual on-request-heterosexual body mutilated (breast implants) porn actress you jerk off to every night. She is like any SJW around here, she just makes money off it.

Drugs. Especially when on them.

Vad fick er att flytta över till Voat? submitted by Dalroc to sweden

Jag tycker Voats gränssnitt är betydligt bättre än Reddits. Jag tycker kommentarsfälten i samtliga trådar på Reddit progressivt blev sämre och precis innan jag flyttade över hit var sweddit en av de tråkigaste subbarna jag över huvud taget prenumererade på.

Fortunately for us, there's a great Wikipedia article about Holocaust denial for ignorant bigots.

Or maybe there will never be a cure as people generally don't want to be cured as there is nothing to cure.

My problem is that they are getting very difficult to distinguish from the trolls.
