Isn’t this a surprise!

I am a 48-year-old transgender man. I was thrilled when the medical community told me six years ago that I could change from a woman to a man. I was informed about all the wonderful things that would happen due to medical transition, but all the negatives were glossed over. Since then, I have suffered tremendously, including ….. and loss of ….. marriage.

…..
It took me 48 years to realize I transitioned because I never wholeheartedly accepted being a lesbian.

Presumably part of this process being that the wife was also a lesbian and one who wasn’t all that keen to start shacking up with a man…..

  1. Since then, I have suffered tremendously, including seven surgeries, a pulmonary embolism, an induced stress heart attack, sepsis, a 17-month recurring infection, 16 rounds of antibiotics, three weeks of daily IV antibiotics, arm reconstructive surgery, lung, heart and bladder damage, insomnia, hallucinations, PTSD, $1 million in medical expenses, and loss of home, car, career and marriage.

    You wouldn’t do this to a Nazi war criminal or a convicted Jihadist, but they’ll do it to a confused middle aged Mum who just needed emotional support and for responsible people to tell her “no”.

    My recurring bladder infection not only demolished my body; it started to ravage my mind, too. I stopped being able to problem-solve, and then lost my health insurance when I couldn’t work. I spent many nights in the bathroom in too much pain to even make it to the toilet, forced to urinate on the floor, screaming as what felt like razor blades left my body. Rest came only in 45-minute increments that I induced with four shots of vodka, six Benadryl pills and a handful of melatonin—with only sleep-deprived hallucinations for my trouble.

    The cruelty of Ancient Rome was more innocent, somehow.

  2. So Much For Subtlety

    It took me 48 years to realize I transitioned because I never wholeheartedly accepted being a lesbian.

    For 42 of those years she had not transitioned. I am willing to bet that for 28 of them she did not know she was a lesbian.

    Future generations will condemn the cruelty with which we treat the mentally ill.

  3. How dumb do you have to be to believe a bunch of medical hacks telling you they can turn you into a member of the opposite sex. Maybe it was what she wanted to hear but even so.

    Poor silly cow.

  5. Cow or Bull Ecksy? So is this a feller that had his cock cut off or a woman that thought she wanted to be a bloke and could somehow fashion a cock out of a cunt. No wonder they’re so fucking confused.

  6. “I spent many nights in the bathroom in too much pain to even make it to the toilet, forced to urinate on the floor, screaming as what felt like razor blades left my body.”

    We should start telling people that this is just a normal part of being a man. It would stop some of this trannie silliness, and maybe get us put on light duties at home.

  7. “I spent many nights in the bathroom in too much pain to even make it to the toilet, forced to urinate on the floor, screaming as what felt like razor blades left my body.”

    If she really had turned into a man, she’d have solved the problem by moving the target a bit closer to the bed. Like, for example, pissing in a bucket.

  8. Or gone back to the surgeon to ask for an extra long cock, so she didn’t even need to get out of bed to piss.

  9. the medical community told me six years ago that I could change from a woman to a man.

    A terrible lie, which ruined her life. Medical professionals who promote this malignant nonsense ought to be banged up. Or perhaps treated to one of their life-altering procedures…

  10. Presumably part of this process being that the wife was also a lesbian and one who wasn’t all that keen to start shacking up with a man…..

    And that lesbian who doesn’t want to shack up with a man is the one the twit mob will go after for being Transphobic.

    Ye gods I can barely get through the bits excerpted by Tim and Steve, let alone the whole thing. This person writes like an overwrought woman. Although that’s not saying much. XY’s these days are starting to sound like overemotional XX’s.

  11. Dennis, Gender Solid

    Always remember, Mr. Newgent, that you got what you wanted. If you now regret getting what you wanted, perhaps you should have been more careful in your choosing.

    Zero sympathy; much scorn. A fool and the joys of life are soon parted.

  12. Dennis – but she didn’t get what she wanted, people took advantage of her mental confusion and mutilated her for cash. People who swore an oath to do no harm.

    I’m an old fashioned male chauvinist, so I don’t believe in fairy tales such as equality. Those blokes on the Titanic were right*, men have a responsibility towards women and children – if that is not so, then what good are we?

    There’s a special place in Hell for people who prey on mothers.

  13. “that the wife was also a lesbian”

    Other way round. The other partner in the marriage was “her” husband, who was presumably quite normal and wasn’t super chuffed at finding out that he was now supposed to be gay and enjoying it.

  14. We do have gay marriage now. And my assumption in reading that was that she was part of a gay marriage…..

  15. I have quite a bit of sympathy for these people.

    They need help, probably of the psychological kind. Maybe mild indulgence as you would with a child and it could pass in time.
    Instead, they’ve been permanently butchered by medical professionals who aren’t meant to harm their patients. Professionals who should have known better.

    Doctors are a strange profession. They cultivate an air of supreme knowledge, yet a lot of medicine is not understood very well at all. It isn’t even well understood how paracetamol works… , yet they would have you believe that they know how to change a man/woman into a woman/man. Also bear in mind, that this is a profession that used to think lobotomising people was a good idea – into the late 50s in the UK and 80s in France (even the Soviet Union banned it on grounds of being barbaric in the early 50s).

  16. Medicine moves forward through a series of real-life practical experiments. Heart transplants took decades to get right – in the ’80s the transplant recipient who lived for six months was seen as an achievement and it was headline news when one lived for a year. Now it’s a “routine” operation and they live fairly normal lives with decades of post-transplant life. Similarly cancer treatments have improved through repeat experiments In both cases, there were huge numbers of failures along the way before a reasonable degree of success was achieved.

    When it comes to gender transition surgery we’re still very much in the earlier days – lots of promises, lots of hope, but lots of guesswork and (now it is becoming clear) lots of bogus theory pushing people into irreversible decisions far too early in the process.

    I’ve sympathy for the writer who has clearly been badly served by the medical professionals treating them and congratulate them for recognising that the system is not producing the best outcomes and wanting to take steps to prevent others following unknowingly the same path.

  17. I look forward to the day when medical science has advanced far enough that they can successfully transplant flippers in place of my arms so that I can live my life as the penguin I’ve always thought I was.

    Of course medicine progresses, as all fields do as technologies improve.
    Heart transplant and cancer surgery is one thing – they are illnesses that will result in one very dead person if left untreated, and extends life, even if for only a short while at the start.

    It remains to be seen whether gender reassignment will join the aforementioned heart transplant and cancer surgery as good things to be improved, or will join lobotomy as something we’ll look back on as a “What they hell were they thinking?” procedure.

    Personally, I look forward to the day where medicine can help people regrow limbs, like lizards.

  19. Dennis, Clear-Eyed As Always

    Dennis – but she didn’t get what she wanted, people took advantage of her mental confusion and mutilated her for cash. People who swore an oath to do no harm.

    That’s the way she’s telling the story today. Because she wants sympathy.

    If you’d tried to intervene prior to the surgery, she’d have gone Carrie Marshall on your ass.

    Individual agency… She got what she wanted. If she now regrets it, then the mistake was in the lack of care put in before the asking. That’s on her. Period.

  20. With Dennis on this, we have people suing the NHS for delaying what is really elective treatment in a pandemic and we teens taking their parents to court (or rather the teens doctors) for refusing consent to treatment.
    Any attempt to question the narrative is deemed transphobic, a judge in Canada threatened a father that misgendering their child could be considered an offence under the child protection act and he would be prosecuted for child abuse if he did so.
    Thankfully the recent U.K. ruling on treatments for teenagers was a step in the right direction, but the backlash from the activists over that isn’t over yet.
    I’ve dealt with some of these people and many of them are truly deluded and evil and have convinced themselves, like the Spanish Inquisition, that what they are doing is good work and needs to continue.

  21. That’s the way she’s telling the story today. Because she wants sympathy.

    Mind reading isn’t real.

    Taking Scott Newgent at face value,

    – “Therefore, I am currently building a bipartisan army to protect our children, hold the medical industry accountable and educate our president and the rest of society about the dangers of transgender extremism. We must throw our differences aside for a moment; I promise you, once children are safe, we can resume fighting. But until children are safe, nothing else matters.”

    Seems more up for a fight. On the right side.

  22. – “The truth was that I didn’t fit in as a dominant, aggressive, assertive lesbian. The dream of finally fitting in dangled like a carrot: The idea that I could fit in catapulted me . . .”

    Dr. Freud might have prescribed a simple strapadictomy.

  23. Chernyy,

    “Doctors are a strange profession. They cultivate an air of supreme knowledge, yet a lot of medicine is not understood very well at all.

    Most doctors are excellent rote learners who exude confidence. I went through a persistent minor illness and 4 of them couldn’t figure it out. If they’d really analysed it properly, they’d have got there, but they aren’t that good.
