Good - welcoming in all of the lovely people Texas and Florida are driving away.

As it should be. Health care (physical and mental/emotional health) is critical to a life well-lived. I'm proud to live in a state that is progressive enough to provide care for all.

These people need psychiatric help

I think you meant to say, "these people need psychiatric help to cope with living in a world with people like me, because I'm an ignorant prick who enjoys making people feel bad about themselves for no good reason."

In which case, you are probably right because god, you and your ilk are insufferable.

Everyone looking at this trans thing all wrong, this is where the money is made baby, cash in while the fad lasts. It'll either turn out to be a trend or the whole planet will be trans in 10 years at this growth rate, it's a win win

This is an u believably bad and funny take. Just like left handedness grew in prominence after the church stopped viewing it as deviant, the trend will even out to its natural size once being trans isn’t demonized and punished. Also, duh there’s money in it. As long as healthcare is a for profit business in this country any new healthcare fields is good for business.

Yeah man, that 400% increase is just gone taper right off lol right along with those life long treatment regiments. My comment is entirely focused monetarily as that is the purpose of advertising, apologies if that wasn't clear. I'm advocating for a body dysmorphia ETF in the healthcare sector

Good, I support that. I support my taxes going to help people, I really do. It’s such a drastic decision to just change genders or whatever. I think they should get psychiatric assistance after too. They should get all the help they need. Everyone should, no matter their identity, sexual preference, or whatever.

Transgendered individuals have to go through mental therapy before medically transitioning to their preferred gender. They don't just wake up one day and decide to take hormones and become the opposite gender likes it's a fad. It's an identity they've dwelled on for many years. I agree with you that everyone can benefit from therapy. LGBTQIA+ have a high rate of suicide and mental health issues. They often run into obstacles obtaining care, which is what makes HHC's initiative so important.

You realize a doctor is supervising these transitions, you can't just walk in and go into surgery because you want to.

It's a long, long transition. It occurs over many years for most people.

Sounds like you need it more. Trust me, if someone has gotten to the point they are deciding to go through transition they have not made that decision lightly, and they are probably more stable in their thought process than you or others may think.
