The Surgery

If you feel trapped in the wrong body, all you need is sex change surgery and you will transform into the other gender, right?

No. The fact is: surgery is cosmetic only.

From my own personal experience, I can tell you—anyone who suggests that a cosmetic surgical procedure performed between your legs changes your gender sex is ether completely mentally ill, delusional, likes to lie or is just intellectually dishonest.

When they approved me for gender surgery, they left out some important truths:

  1. The gender surgery is called "reassignment of gender" because the surgery cannot change your gender sex.

    The so-called gender surgery does not remove the male penis but slices the penis from the tip down to the scrotum. Then the male penis skin is inverted to form the vaginal-looking hole. All the way it is male tissue; no female parts are used for the gender procedure. The next surgical step uses the male testicle sac to form the new entry (the lips) to the new male vagina. This is what they call a sex change surgery—rearranging the same male genitalia you started with. Transgenders should feel duped because they are.

  2. Suicide attempts for transgenders both post-op and pre-op is very high--over 40%, according to Clara Moskowitz, senior writer for LiveScience. Mike Penner, sportswriter for the LA Times who transitioned, committed suicide.

  3. Regret is very common after surgery. Three, five, ten and even 20 years after surgery, some of us are not better off psychologically. We come to understand the surgery did not resolve our gender problems or change our gender. Take a look at the emails I've received.

  4. Or we realize too late that we were suffering from powerful delusional thinking, that is, mistakenly believing that somehow surgery would change our gender.

I see the wonderful success rates being reported about transgenders and it always seems to be related to the first year after surgery. But not tracking people after the first year “honeymoon” —say 5, 10, 15 years after the surgery—conveniently excludes and hides the 41% of transgenders who attempt suicide, the later deaths by alcohol and the lives spent suffering severe depression. The reports of “success” fail to include the growing numbers of gender change regretters such as the ones who write to me, discouraged and disappointed beyond description to have fallen for the delusion of gender surgery, and have returned to living as they were born.

Gender surgery is radical. It changes nothing of gender or sex but it does change your life in ways that are beyond repair. Homosexual and transgender activists continue to push sex change surgery as the "necessary treatment" but it may, in fact, cause irreversable damage to the patient. 

Anyone considering the surgery should proceed with "extreme caution" and be evaluated by psychologists who do not have a reputation of promoting the surgery.

Now you know the truth—no sex change ever takes place. The success rate for those changing genders, if and when it is ever tracked over a 20 year period, will struggle to get to 50%.

My Conclusion and Appeal

It might be easy to dismiss my opinions as just one man’s story, but I've done extensive research into what the experts say. You can read the results in Paper Genders.

I appeal to medical professionals to stop calling the surgery ‘treatment’. Call it like it is—a lifestyle choice.

Stop cutting body parts off those who need a real answer for their mental and psychiatric illnesses. Refer them to psychological professionals who will conduct deep therapy and bring them the corresponding deep healing. 

Tell the patients the truth—that having surgery may only compound their problems.
