side effects are permanent. its safer to make sure you really thought it out
Says who, anonymous?
While it’s true that certain aspects of hormones and surgery aren’t exactly reversible, such things are rectifiable… but that is honestly beside the point!
On the daily, folks worldwide make permanent and life altering decision without anyone ever vetting their capacity to make a fully informed choice. People have cosmetic surgeries on the regular and no one stops to ask if they’ve “really thought it out.” People have engaged in acts of body modification since the dawn of time, without mental health clearance, and the world is still going round.
Life changing decisions, unrelated to surgery and hormones, are made constantly and not once does anyone stop to confer about the safety of said decisions. Truth be told, buying a car is honestly a significantly more risky commitment than hormones and surgery combined, with regard to both safety and cost… and I’ve bought 3 in my lifetime; not once did anyone stop and ask me if I’d “really thought it out!”
What you’re suggesting sounds A LOT like gatekeeping, to me, and that shit is oh so passe. Individuals have the autonomy to make fully informed personal and medical decisions without interference. It’s their body so it’s their choice, NOT yours.
I highly recommend you cease and desist from providing unsolicited, potentially bigoted, and generally uneducated information as it’s incredibly unbecoming. Going forward, I suggest you up your game and do some research before spouting off archaic dogma and potentially harmful propaganda.
WPATH SOC, Version 7 might be a good place to start?
