The story that the media don’t want you to hear because it blows up the liberal narrative: the head of a surgery clinic in Belgrade, Serbia, revealed his concern over the rising number of patients (all men over 30 who became transgender women) who are coming to him with regrets about undergoing gender reassignment surgery over the past five years. Many wish to reverse the procedure and report suffering “crippling levels of depression,” including suicidal thoughts. The professor said that “reversal surgery and regret in transgender persons is one of the very hot topics,” and he’s urging the medical community to do more research into it.
But therein lies the problem: even to suggest looking into that field is a defiance of the politically-correct narrative that a belief that you’re in the wrong body should be treated with surgery instead of therapy. And this doctor is already on thin ice for refusing to perform sex change surgery on patients under 18 because he’s afraid of what might happen to their minds five or ten years later. One British university already banned medical researchers from looking into any negative aftermath of such surgeries for fear of being attacked on social media.
Science, including medical science, is supposed to be based on the pure pursuit of truth, wherever it may lead. Activists are doing transgender patients no favors by blocking doctors from learning more about their condition because the truth might be politically incorrect. Before cutting off patients’ body parts, let’s make sure they also haven’t been cut off from vital information.
