This has always bothered me, even when I was more of a TRA, it bothered the hell out of me that a lot of trans people seemed to think that they couldn't live without transtioning NOW. And now with puberity blockers a lot of trans people are acting like a child going through the puberity they don't want is hellish. What gets me is I was born with a birth defect where my neck is fused and I don't have great balance and it affects my hearing and even my eyesight. If I had thousands of dollars I could get surgery, but I don't and wouldn't want to risk my life anyway. There are also a shit ton of people that need surgerys that they can't afford. Why in the world should people that have perfectly healthy bodies, get top priority?

Yes, yes, and yes! So much medical research is profit-oriented. I hate that people with mental health problems aren't getting the help they actually need, and that people who legitimately need mastectomies and endocrinologist's help have to wait in line behind "trans kids."
