On Twitter, the man said that he had been effectively ‘castrated’ by the surgery

Umm:

Anguish of young man who had sex organs removed on NHS then regretted it the same day… as he SUES NHS over gender reassignment surgery

Effectively? I think he was, wasn’t he?

  1. I feel sorry for the guy, people affected by trans deserve our pity. But as always with detransitioners, it’s everybody’s fault except his own:

    He says he grew up in the North East of England. ‘I knew deep down from a young age I was gay and was deeply terrified of it,’ he says in his tweets describing his past. ‘Everyone in the family joked and expressed disgust and disapproval of gay people.’

    He withdrew into an online world where he felt at peace. There, at 23, he found discussions about gender dysphoria, the fear of living in the wrong sexual body. ‘That’s me, I thought.’

    It’s the terrifying homophobia of early 2000’s Durham, and internet grooming, and the NHS that made him request and get a cockachopectomy.

    Nothing to do with his own perversions, porn addiction, and sexual fantasies, you understand.

  2. Absolutely, but it’s not a reason by itself to criticise the surgery is it? If you use “examples exist” as your criteria, you’re banning surgery of any kind entirely.

    The real metric to look at is how much harm is caused by not having it available vs having it available.

    Explain the methodology used for measuring both.

  4. If we treated them as mentally ill rather than cutting their cocks off we’d probably have a better success rate.

    …and why is the NHS doing this at all? At best it is a medically unjustified cosmetic procedure.

    Same for giving teens and pre-teens puberty blockers.

  5. The regret rate for gender related surgery is lower than almost any other category.

  6. I’m still waiting for someone to explain why we give gender reassignment surgery to people with this condition and don’t give liposuction to anorexics…

  7. What an idiot. Being a bog-standard gay was not enough for him, he had to be stunning and brave too. Serves the fucker right.

    I’d say hernia surgery has lower regret rate that chopoffballs surgery. How fucking mentally ill and disturbed one has to be, what a poof!

  8. “The minute I woke up from surgery, I knew I had made the biggest mistake of my life.” Which, in his own words, precedes his discovery of the described consequences. So it’s not just failure by the NHS is it?

    Matthew L,

    So a higher proportion of people regret having hip replacements, kidney transplants, or curative tumour resections than sex changes.

    Riiiiiiiiiiiight.

  10. The regret rate for gender related surgery is lower than almost any other category.

    Ironically, this is bollocks.

    The complication rate for this type of butchery (it can hardly be called surgery, since there’s no medical reason for it) is massive. It’s very, very common for neoeunuchs to require multiple “corrective” surgeries for the strange new hole doctors drilled where no hole should be.

    Common side effects are inability to ever experience sexual pleasure again, hair growing in the hole, extruding weird clumps of dead matter, the pervasive stench of shit from their newly plumbed colon, and fistulas.

    In the best case scenario, they have to spend hours a day painfully shoving a plastic rod up their frankenstein pocket, for the rest of their naturals.

    Pretending this is all fine is classic tranny cope. Sunk cock phallacy.

    Exactly my thoughts.
    I was just thinking that there must be load of people thinking “I wish I’d never had that appendectomy. I would much rather that my appendix had exploded inside me and I died of sepsis.”

    I’m still waiting for the citation for his claim…

  12. Steve, because of that stench of shit normal people should not wipe their arses after a poo in order to be inclusive. It’s transphobic not to smell of shit.

  13. Body dysmorphia comes in all shapes. If you have Alien Arm syndrome you will have to endure weeks of psychiatric assessment. If your dysmorphia includes every cell in your body they get the scalpels out pdq.

    Or, as he might have said when he walked into the doctor’s office, “Clitation required.”

  15. Joasephine, from the article:

    Based on this review, there is an extremely low prevalence of regret in transgender patients after GAS. We believe this study corroborates the improvements made in regard to selection criteria for GAS. However, there is high subjectivity in the assessment of regret and lack of standardized questionnaires, which highlight the importance of developing validated questionnaires in this population.

    The low prevalence is because of the very intensive set of hurdles you had to pass to even get GAS in most places.
    Peeps that underwent the surgery were well prepared and informed about pro’s, con’s and risks, and had endured very extensive psychological evaluations before they got to the point where surgery was on the table. Literally years of preparation before knife was set to functional organ.

    I can’t help but feel that the procedure around this case was…. less rigorous…
    And the freshly created Eunuch doesn’t strike me as someone who would have made it through the Full Circus. Too many mental issues, including the obvious sensitivity to Peer Pressure and a glaring inferiority/self-hate complex.
    Although I can’t really feel sorry for the stupid idiot, he does have a case against the NHS, because he should have been told “No!” quite firmly if proper procedure ( or at least procedure I recognise as such..) was followed.

    But I bet we’d have heard of the same lad, featuring more or less the same tansactivist groups, if he’d been told “No!”.
    In big headlines in the outlets we’ve come to know and loathe.. Simply because he’d been Denieeeeedd!!

  16. Unexplained is why this gay wanted to become a woman in the first place.
    Doesn’t this ar$ehole have an ar$ehole?
    Twenty grand of our money down the shitter.

  17. “Twenty grand of our money down the shitter.”

    The estimate for lifetime care costs for post op trannies is more than a million dollars.

    Kerching!

  18. How the hell did >25 yo man not know having his testicles removed would make him infertile?

    It’s also another case of gay being forced down trans route as muslim Iran mandates]]

    Darren Grimes, GB News, highlighted how he escaped the “You’re not gay, you’re trans” indoctrination programme
