#1 ...Although it's not a 'always-happens', suicidal thoughts and actions are a serious problem in the trans community...because it's a hell of a shock to discover that you've gone through all that, only to find that it didn't make your life perfect, and in fact just made it more difficult.

And ol' Chelsea wasn't the most stable little thing to begin with.

#6 suicidal thoughts and actions are a serious problem in the trans community

As I recall, there is no significant difference between the rates of anxiety, depression, and attempted/completed suicide among those in the trans community who have gone through the surgery and hormones and those who remain comoletely as nature made them. And, as Dr. Paul McHugh of Johns Hopkins Medical School wrote a few years ago, after having studied the issue for forty years,

Ten to fifteen years after surgical reassignment, the suicide rate of those who had undergone sex-reassignment surgery rose to twenty times that of comparable peers.

#12 All because you straight guys won't date

Or because the lesbians won’t date him. Isn’t that [the reupholstered] Bruce Jenner’s complaint?

It does alter your voice, but it does not give
you a platform. There is a difference.

#15 A talented writer named Jerzy Kosinsky had an interesting story about the struggles trannies face in a very weird book titled "Blind Date."

Unrelated to the subject of this comment, Kosinsky's novel "Being There," which was adapted to film, uncannily predicted the presidency of Barack Obama.

#17 Sad our society has branded as hatred any attempts to actually help the trans community work through the underlying problems. Just accept and blame society for the high suicide rates among the trans community.

#22 Actually, I feel a little badly for Him. Her. It. This douchebag.

Okay, maybe not that badly. But hey. A little badly.

Suicide hurts a lot of people. Other than the deader.
