• It's a myth that the suicide rate is still
extremely high for trans people who have
transitioned. You should know that this is
from a purposely misrepresented study and
spread by an anti LGBT hate group.
Unfortunately these lies were picked up and
spread by the media.
The infamous 40% statistic is specifically
referring to lifetime risk, without regards to
whether the patient attempted suicide
before or after transition.
When looking at studies that do distinguish
between suicide attempts before vs. after
transition, we see that nearly all of these
attempts happen before. After transition, the
rate of suicide attempts drops to around the
national average.
This is very literally life saving medical
treatment.
Transition vastly reduces suicide risk. The
farther along in transition a trans person is,
the lower the suicide risk becomes. After
transition, and when spared discrimination
and abuse, the rate of suicide attempts
among trans people people are about the
same as the national average. The ability to
transition, along with family and social
acceptance, are the largest factors
reducing suicide risk among trans people.1

    • You know, I respect the hell out of you for this. You changed my mind. I only have one question from all of that, is the 40% rate from pre-transition, or was it just fabricated from the getgo?

    • Trans people should be put into a mental hospital. If the only option is suicide or change their gender they got something fucked in the head idc what you say.
