• this newsgroup should be renamed to soc.support.transgender

    "Transgendered" is such a retro term from 90s and earlier. We are now in
    2020 when there are more out trans people than ever before in modern
    history and we use the term "being transgender" instead.

    Will this newsgroup be renamed to soc.support.transgender to reflect a
    change in the used name? 30 years ago was a completely different time in
    trans community...
    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.
