I had an hours long discussion with an acquaintance of mine a couple weeks ago (stereotypical lib bro), who initially spouted that "kids aren't having surgery" nonsense, too. I pointed out Dr. Yeetus Teetus, and he had the gall to say, "Yeah, but they're not having the other surgeries." As if a double mastectomy was just no big deal. I really do think it's willful blindness. He simply couldn't understand why I was so concerned, and I couldn't understand why he wasn't.

Yeah, so I rounded up a bunch of medical sources that prove they ARE having THAT (bottom) surgery. AS WELL as mastectomies, bone shaving, and other related surgeries. Which aren’t even counted in the minor surgery statistics, oh so conveniently.

Surgeons encourage boys to have vaginoplasty before they turn 18 so their mothers are still around to make sure they keep up with dilation. If that isn't the creepiest thing you've ever heard.

What the fuck So wrong on so many levels. If you aren't mature enough to not destroy your body again after destroying it the first time, your poor mother (the fucking sexism?!!!!) Shouldn't have to help. You should just sit and rot.

Eh. At this point, when I see this, I assume the person is knowingly lying. The refrain happens too frequently, and not just regarding trans issues. Anything sort of questionable that's important to the left gets this treatment: "That's not happening." "It's happening, but it's rare." "It's happening, and that's good. It should happen more."

Reminds me of the narcissist’s prayer: That didn't happen. And if it did, it wasn't that bad. And if it was, that's not a big deal. And if it is, that's not my fault. And if it was, I didn't mean it. And if I did, you deserved it

I got into an argument with my brother about it (we have a TiF cousin I'm worried about) and he genuinely didn't know they do surgery on minors*. I sent him some examples and he kind of shut up, but I should have asked him if he would be against it if they were?? If it ever comes up again I will ask

*which makes me think he doesn't actually know much about any other issue he's super vocal about either lol

he doesn't actually know much about any other issue he's super vocal about either

Super common, unfortunately.
