If we had the resources that are available today when we were school-aged, I would be wearing a dress today and I might even have different plumbing.This is a classic comment actually made on a blog but similar to what is said by many in the TG world. The delusion is, if given the chance they would have done what some of us did when we pushed the envelope when we were young. The simple truth is no you would not have because it is not in your DNA because if it was you would have done something and even if prevented by home circumstances you would have done something when you were in your late teens to 20's unless you drowned your misery in drugs or booze.
They make the assumption they would have the courage we had and kids like Jazz have today but the truth is simple you do not because kids like Jazz and those of us that did something or forced something when we were young were high intensity transsexuals and none of you are remotely high intensity transsexuals because kids like that rarely get pushed into marriages or father children because psychologically they are girls and not a one of you were ever psychologically girls at that age.
I realize that due to political of transsexuals that typing transsexuals is not talked about. This phenomena goes hand in hand with the transgender attempts to destroy the use of the word transsexual and essentially make it a pejorative. Sadly it is working all too well.
The most informative part about the comment above is the part where the individual says I would be wearing a dress today. That is typical transvestite speak because they equate female/woman with a dress and then mention they might possibly have new plumbing as in SRS. That is again total rubbish and typical of many late transitioners. The simpler truth is if you were going to do it you would done it then and not waited into your 40s, 50s. and 60s.
You make the false assumption that if it was easy for Jazz, it was not by the way, then if given the same chance when you were a child you would have done what Jazz has done and many children have done. You make the assumption that somehow you would make this change but the truth is if you were not driven to force the change when you were younger in your youth you would not do it today either because it takes courage and the conviction you are truly a girl to take that step.
Do you actually think it is easy? That is insulting to all of us that went through it. I am sure Jazz was just as scared and nervous as I was and many of my friends were when we forced the issue. The only advantage the kids have today is they can transition earlier and there is far more information but the one quality all of us had was complete psychosexual inversion or the total belief we were girls.
You will also notice that most of the children today are extremely feminine even before they begin blockers and estrogen. In many ways we are lucky because it is kind of forced on you but I had some friends that were not so lucky, one of whom exited this world off the George Washington Bridge.
SRS was not an option for us nor is it an option for Jazz and the other kids today; they are not going to be saving their sperm; They are not going to be claiming that SRS is forced sterilization; they are not going to get married and father children; and they are hopefully realize they are just girls and women and not allow themselves to be stigmatized as transgender or trans anything because they and we are cured after SRS.
These kids and we were what Benjamin defined as Type VI transsexual. This does not mean many of you are not transsexual but in transsexuals intensity of your transsexualism rules and that is what drives transition and not some arbitrary belief that if given the chance you would have transitioned young.
It is not a case of one being better or worse than the other but we are different although bound by our transsexualism. The more intense the less likely one can be influenced by outside forces such as parents, family and friends. I do believe testosterone can dull the intensity in many but for those of us that were or are young we were and are driven to be as we should have been born.
The truth is the earlier you transition the better socialized you become as a girl. I doubt any of you have the slightest idea how much courage it took or takes for a child to stick up for themselves with their parents. In my case mine were trying to find a cure for me but they were certainly not supportive of many of the things I did and the same is true today. You have to make them understand you are correct and their misgivings are wrong. It took me 12 1/2 years with my mother until she realized I really was the daughter she thought was being born when I arrived.
In the world of today it is certainly easier to convince your parents but that implies the child is willing to push the issue and there is a large benefit for the child then and today. You are learning to stick up for yourself which is good. The other truth is there are no more kids today than there were back in my or even your time period. The truth is there is a media that may or may not be interested but if you look at all the clinics in the US that treat child transsexuals you will not find a lot of them or certainly as many as some of you think.
The sad part about today is the transgender crowd is attempting to associate themselves with these children in an attempt to infer they are the same as the children bu they are not. Sadly they are pushing their belief that SRS is only optional which by inference makes some parents believe this is true for their child. It is not and it is criminal!
I watched a YouTube video with Jazz and some later transitioners and one of these fools turned to Jazz and on air said, "I'll trade you my breasts for your hair", while not one person said a thing and poor Jazz looked about as uncomfortable as I have ever seen.
The other grade tragedy befalling the kids today is being linked to the GLB which infers again that somehow the children are like those that are gay and lesbian. The truth is they were born that way and we kids were born this way and some of us may end up gay or lesbian but that is later in life. The other sad part is the LGB is pushing the transgender mantra which implies to those that truly understand what TG means to associate the kids with transvestites which is a travesty.
The other interesting aspect of the child transsexual is these children closely follow, almost identically, the percentages of straight and lesbian/gay adults in mainstream society. That cannot be said for those that do not transition early. This is verified by a study done in the Netherlands.
Now one finds transvestites transitioning and starting hormones as they age and this is done under the guise of the transgender banner. We even have sudden onset transsexualism which happens suddenly and with several years some man is suddenly a woman. We even have people convincing other people they are transsexual. They are lying to themselves and their families but then men have always been good at lying to their wives. The irony is how shocked they are when the wife leaves and files for divorce. The real question should be simple. What the heck did you think she would do?
The other truth most of you miss is we and the kids today are sexual like all genetic girls are. It is why we desperately want SRS and this is also verified by the Dutch study. We like boys and we want to date boys and eventually we want to be able to have a boyfriend and we need SRS so we can consummate the relationship down the road. We are girls and we think like girls and in general liking boys is what girls do as they enter puberty.
So this concept that we are all the same and naturally fit under the TG banner is just total bullshit but then this effort is being pushed by men that want the few privileges we women have whenever they happen to be dressed while maintaining their male dominance in society and the business world.
The other thing that irks me is reading some late transitioners scream they will kill themselves if they cannot live or dress as a woman. A little clue from someone with way too much experience with suicide attempts. We don't tell people we are going to try because that sort of defeats the purpose which is to kill yourself. These fools read about we kids having high suicide rates and make it part of their learned narrative. The reason suicide was attempted was because we felt hopeless because there seemed and in reality was no help available. Once I found help I never thought of suicide again but I did have a dear friend I mentioned above kill herself because she knew she could never pass which was heartbreaking.
