If someone has extremely bad gender dysphoria, I'm sure that medicially transitioning might save their life, but those cases are extremely rare.

But gender dysphoria != trans.

Basically anyone can claim the trans label and get some instant 'vulnerable' status.

Also gender dysphoria isn't even classified as a mental illness at this point, the world health org classifies it as something like sexual dysfunction.

So the claim is just wild.

Nobody would EVER say that about the worst case of anorexia that isn't responding to regular treatment. It's complete and utter bullshit. Suddenly every single TRA is going to be that "extreme" exception.

And I believe anorexia has one of, if not the, highest rate of death for mental illnesses.
