Gender dysphoria is a bad problem for those that have it. There’s no equivalent for the other examples.

====

What makes gender dysphoria worse is there’s no relief from it. You can take anxiety meds but you still have a penis. You can pick up drinking but you still have boobs.

That’s why hormones and surgery works in a lot of cases. Not all but a lot.

====

I think so. I landed online with a group from ROCOR around 1994, which was linked to an extreme monastery in Alaska.

I was hooked, going to be the SUPER ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN, telling local priests what they are doing wrong, as they rolled their eyes.

It was fun. I didn’t go all-in – mostly in my head and around the house, although I did learn a bit of Russian and did a LITTLE monastery time.

====

I know too many who have it. It’s not what comedians and pundits say it is.

Suicide is the normal solution to gender dysphoria.

=====

It’s not a want thing. “I don’t know why anybody would chose to be gay, it’s like, why not just get a girlfriend?”

====

I have a wide range of online friends. Keeps me from too much of a bubble.

====

Nice! I started veering away after getting a few stern warnings from local priests with a lot of background info I didn’t know about.

I found Osho after that, and then was Mr. Science, although I always was Mr. Science really.

=====

If nothing else, I ‘get’ Trinity. Happened one night at the monastery I was at. (in Georgia of all places) Believing it or not didn’t matter but I was happy to ‘get’ the concept and how it flowed.

=====

It was sort of a seeing the flow thing. Had similar “a-ha” moments contemplating complexity, or the moment where chaos emerges from bifurcation, just in a different context. Moving brain pictures / volumes I guess. No different from dreaming just awake but it’s a woah feeling while it happens.

====

I assume everybody has them now and again and just doesn’t talk about it.

====

I think there’s probably always been a lot of gender dysphoria but with no social outlet for it it just showed up in fetishes and bitter angry marriages.

====

an ASD link is quite likely. I have another case I know that fits that perfectly that I was about to write up, but this “ROGD” thing isn’t worth my effort to look at. I know of the real thing and ROGD looks like a smear thing.

====

Think logically: Do you think insurance companies would PAY for estrogen / testosterone / puberty blockers?

Therapists and counsellors are pricey. Who pays? Insurance.

The program they have to go through is extensive and costly. It’s not a whim thing and if it is, it’s unmasked long before the first pill is prescribed.

=====

ASD and gender dysphoria is very logical.
I’d look at Oxytocin. Genetically low Oxytocin in particular. .

=====

I’m not going to entertain ROGD. I’ll focus on GD and a possible link to ASD but ROGD isn’t worth my time.

=====

You have political reasons.
I just want to see people get healthier.
Vets not commit suicide.
Folks with gender dysphoria get treatment.
Folks with diabetes to not die from lack of $$$ because NOBODY told them they could get Insulin OTC.
Medical costs in the USA to go down and be approachable.

=====

All I know is GD is a real thing. ROGD can’t be.

If there’s gangs of kids banging down the doors of endocrinologists and busting through insurance company cubicles for support for a trendy thing I’d love to see it.

——

Dealing with US insurance and our healthcare system in general is a nightmare. You’re a dad and ought to know that.

GD is a medical issue and treated as such with all the red tape and frustration that goes with EVERY medical thing in the USA.

======

Like I said, I’m not even entertaining it. No medical association recognizes it. So for now, that invalidates it to me.

====

If you’re going to say that the medical associations are all left-wing fanatics I won’t entertain that either.

====

There’s such a thing as horseshit and occasionally I can smell it across the Wifi.
