I’m very much of the mind that I want to mind my own business and be left alone.

I might be interested in the human behavior aspects, but I only really feel the need to get involved if it effects me, or harms others.

So gender affirming care is tricky. Do I let them at it and just mind my own business? Or do they need to be protected from themselves bc they’re sick? I don’t know. Especially since the APA changed it’s mind about people absolutely obsessing over gender and mutilating themselves being a disorder in the DSM-5.

But the arguments from the transgender community themselves seem to be giving me most of my reasons to vote against it.

Are transwomen women? Yes. Apparently, there’s no difference between men and women.

Is it fair for transwomen to play against biological women in sports? Yes. Apparently, puberty blockers make absolutely no difference as long as the transwoman has been taking hormones for a few months prior to playing.

Do minors need gender affirming care, like puberty blockers and surgery? Yes. Bc men and women are so different, and puberty blockers will make all the difference in the world so they can appear more biological women like when they’re older.

So which is it? The same people argue the same contradictions. The claims change based on when it suits them.

So which are we supposed to believe? It can’t be all three at the same time.

These same people are trying to cancel biology being taught in schools… How can that be of sound mind?

It is harmful to their bodies.

If someone is suicidal, we should not support their desire to kill themselves.

If someone believes their leg is trying to kill them, we should not support their desire to chop off their leg.

Any compassion we have should be directed to treating and alleviating their illness, not enabling it and encouraging the self-harm.

Rejecting "gender affirming" treatment is the only compassionate path.
