Gender Dysphoria And Mental Health/Buck Angel Needs Help
There are feelings that you have that are a result of the gender the world reads you as—
And there are feelings that you will have regardless of whether or not you were ever transgender.
My boss at work went through a divorce so bad he hasn’t talked to his own daughter in 6 years.
I’m gonna go ahead and assume that his wife said some pretty damn hurtful things to this man.
I’m gonna go ahead and assume that the pain goes both ways and
I’m gonna go ahead and assume that he knows what it’s like to struggle with depression and anxiety. His behavior indicates that he is sensitive to these issues.
Buck Angel’s personal mission to
Educate the world on gender dysphoria and the
Medical necessity of severe depression and anxiety
In order to be transgender
Is loaded with guilt, denial, shame, and self-loathing.
Depression and anxiety, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder
Various mental health conditions that
Many many people in the community struggle with.
I find it to be reckless and dangerous
Far more so than surgery far more so than hormone therapy
To suggest that
Transitioning is marked by and requires
Severe, omnipresent depression and anxiety and
Body dysmorphia and self-loathing.
I find it disgusting to say that passing is something
You only get to enjoy when you are muscular enough to pass as whatever your body dysmorphic disorder says a man’s body looks like.
Cis men are finally waking up to this—
When will trans men…?
Can someone who he listens to please explain to
Buck Angel that depression and anxiety
Are helped by transitioning, and that
If they aren’t getting better—
You need to check into those problems
They are separate problems. That have nothing to do
With gender dysphoria. Alas
It is extremely convenient
To blame everything on gender dysphoria while also insisting
That if you didn’t have it— you wouldn’t even be trans.
You just can’t understand
That’s what depression always says, man.
Gender dysphoria gets better but
Depression is a lifetime battle and
You’re publicly losing this one, man.
