    The study, which involved interviews with 250 transgender people, found that the majority of them reported social rejection related to their gender identity, as well as being the victim of violence.

    You won't get any attention for pretending to be trans. You will be
    rejected by other people and you will find yourself at increased risk of
    being the victim of violence.

    Nobody pretends to be someone who they are not only to be faced with
    crap. You must be an idiot to think people transition to get attention
    of others.
    There is no verifiable evidence that gender dysphoria can be treated in
    other ways than transitioning. None whatsoever.
    Gender-affirmative trans care *requires* therapy. That is, unless you go
    the informed consent route, which you can always refuse to.
    Scaring trans people away from transitioning and repressing their
    identities *IS* conversion therapy.
