It's "supportive" because the only other alternative is to be shamed for being tRaNspHoBiC, and losing your job. Eat your fucking cake.

Yeah, I’m finding it harder and harder to have sympathy at this point for the adults that pursue this. The amount of abuse lobbed at women and the LGB (and lesbians in particular) should have been a clue this isn’t some awesome righteous cause.

That said, I still think the doctors hold a huge responsibility in this. Removing the “gate keeping” instead of hormones and surgery for all is blatant medical abuse and should never have been allowed to happen in the first place.

That's exactly the reason why old school "gender doctors" didn't okay HRT and surgery if they figured the TIM would never pass. Because obviously that leads to increased suicidal ideation, like we see here

They also knew the straight ones were sex pests and tended to only allow it in gay men. Homophobic and sexist, but they weren't wrong about the pests.

I blame the administration that pressures doctors into doing something unethical for fear of being sued. They don't understand health issues, they shouldn't be making ANY policies.
