oh right I forgot that every bad thing ever was actually Antifa soldiers secretly flow in from the Ukraine who infiltrated every single pro-trump group. They made sure their misdeeds were caught on video and are now doing time just to trick the world into thinking crazy drunk hicks did bad things.

Such a simple plan!

Yet, gender-affirming care is associated with reduced prevalence of suicide thoughts and attempts for those who receive the care they need.[1]

A recent study found that transgender adults who received pubertal suppression hormone therapy as adolescents were less likely to experience suicide ideation in their lifetime.[2]

Respondents to the 2015 USTS who have had the gender affirming hormone therapy or surgical care they need had lower prevalence of past-year suicide attempts compared to those who had not received the care they needed (5.1% vs. 8.5%); this difference persists even after controlling for race, age, sex assigned at birth, binary/nonbinary gender identity, and education.[3]

No, it’s a holistic activity and that includes a motivated and productive staff.

They may have just retired out but it’s hard to imagine the optimal value capture was shutting down.

I believe it was 24/hr but those were also the starting positions for negotiations for which he declined to participate. Fair I guess but not an optimal strategy.

Also it was probably the highest end sandwich shop in a high cost area. What was a sandwich like 147 semolians ?

I think if a kid is very likely going to kill themselves if they can’t I’d at least consider it. The goal is to minimize that bad outcomes of possible.

So if you had the choice between your child dying or having a tattoo then you are all in for them dying?

Is the 15 year old been struggling mightily, bullied mercilessly, and very well might kill themselves if they don’t get the fifth of vodka?

If so, then I’d probably let them have it alongside making sure they are getting all sorts of support services.

There is a substantial material difference in the compromises that are being suggested between mental and physical health.

There is much less reason to compromise on age limits for smoking- which is really just because james dean made it super cool.

But drinking is less of an issue especially in many other cultures. However I’m not sure I want kids in bars at night (again seems like little to no benefits), as it seems that is a net negative instead of balancing good and bad to a net positive outcome.
