Can someone with gender dysphoria live a happy life without transitioning? Is transitioning the only treatment for dysphoria?
>>
>>5595408
Can they? Maybe. That's up to the individual. You're looking at this the wrong way.

Gender dysphoria is a problem that lowers the quality of a person's life significantly. If other factors in their life raise the quality of their life enough to offset this, they can be happy or at least ok. However gender dysphoria gets worse over time. The longer you live with gender dysphoria, the more unhappy you will become over time. People who have stressful circumstances or painful lives outside of gender dysphoria already have little chance to make it.

'Treatment' for dysphoria can be whatever you want, whatever makes the pain easier or more bearable. Whatever makes the quality of your life improve. For some this can be religion, getting lost in their job, sex, drugs, whatever.

The only treatment that demonstrably lowers feelings of gender dysphoria on a consistent basis is transition. Transitioning is not guaranteed to make you happy or remove your dysphoria, it's just the option that works the most often. There's no one size fits all solution, and for some transition won't help.

Pretty much. Being trans is awful, it's like being the worst minority possible.
>>
>>5595989
And unlike some shit minorities, (like lepers) people blame trans people for being the way we are. Like we would want to be this way.

>unlike some shit minorities, (like lepers) people blame trans people for being the way we are

Are you sure? Maybe you're just talking about modern times, and maybe I'm retarded for choosing these examples, but the Bible and Princess Mononoke both seem to indicate lepers were stigmatized.

im talking modern times.

Then it's just a matter of time, desu. With education, cis people will stop this shit.

IMO I think it's that's because being openly homophobic is frowned upon these days so bigots turn to the next minority that the general population wont actively defend yet.
>>
>>5595408
Sure you can, hon.

[read: Fuck no, people don't transition because they think the grass is greener on the other side. Well, non-crazy people don't, anyway. They transition because life as their birth sex is fucking miserable, and there's no end to the misery, and as your body becomes more sexually dimorphic, things just get worse]

If you think like this and are still on /lgbt/ you need to sort your life out.
>>
>>5596323
so you're saying it's okay that people transition just because they think life is better as a girl/boy ?
>>
>>5596325
No I'm not but if you seriously stick around 4chan, or at least /lgbt/ for any other reason you're gonna have a shitty time.

People imply and project so fucking much, and common sense finds no footing here.

You won't convince any of the faggots here you're not AGP cause to them thats the only reason ever.
>>
>>5596331
but i already pass and have a normal life. i'm still dysphoric and depressed (why the fuck would i be on here otherwise), but i'm stable enough in where i am to not give two shits about the rest of /lgbt/

i know what the fuck i am, and i couldn't give two shits if some faggot on here tells me i'm just living a fad.
>>
>>5596333
If you pass why do you still want to relate to the LGBT-kinda trannies who have massive issues?
It'll only remind you that you're just a tranny too and I don't see what's to gain from talking to a bunch of miserable people.

4chan is just like that, you think you can take distance but when you spend all this time in an echo chamber, superficial problems you never had will drag you down.

Genuinly don't understand how you can do anything but shitpost around these sites.
>>
>>5596348
but i normally shitpost around this board. someone needs to tell other trannies to step it up, or seppuku

That's the absolute wrong kind of shitposting.
You're just amplifying the echo chamber.
>>
>>5596333
I honestly don't believe that being trans is a fad, but I do believe that medical transition is a fad that will be laughed at in 15 years, as they realize how they've let heavy porn addicts and sissies chop their dicks off. Nobody can tell me I didn't see what I saw here, there are threads where fucking sissies congregate everyday. If you're going to let those people transition, what's to stop pedophiles from transitioning into child lookalikes, because they feel like children in the wrong body? Or amputee fetishists from getting their limbs chopped off, because they can't stand to live with them? Or humiliation fetishists that get kicked in the nuts for an orgasm, from castrating themselves? Yes all of these things exist, and they create the same "dysphoria" described by TG people.
>>
>>5595408
happy, no. i keep trying, because i'm afraid of transition; the social aspects and the medical. but i'll probably kill myself soon
>>
No you fucking can't. I repressed the hell out of it and tried to be a femboy, but i always end up feeling like shit and still going back at it. It's even harder now that i've come to terms that i am trans tbhon.
