Enjoy Bruce, er... Caitlyn's TV show...

...while you can...

"What more needs to be done to combat the high suicide rate among transgender people?"
Unfortunately, despite Bruce Jenner's newfound celebrity as the latest & greatest Kardashian sister, if there is a solution to transgender morbidity, it resides outside the surgical realm.

Anyone who looks at the academic literature, as compiled by folks like the National Institutes of Health, will see that the suicide rate for pre & post-op transsexuals is nearly identical at just over 40%.
Persons with transsexualism, after sex reassignment, have considerably higher risks for mortality, suicidal behaviour, and psychiatric morbidity than the general population.

Our findings suggest that sex reassignment, although alleviating gender dysphoria, may not suffice as treatment for transsexualism, and should inspire improved psychiatric and somatic care after sex reassignment for this patient group.
The established facts, which the transgendered community do their best to suppress, show that transsexualism is a psychiatric condition that is not "cured" by cutting off your existing genitalia and replacing them with a surgical facsimile.

It's all there in black and white...
The review of more than 100 international medical studies of post-operative transsexuals by the University of Birmingham's aggressive research intelligence facility (Arif) found no robust scientific evidence that gender reassignment surgery is clinically effective.
Actually, it's worse than that...
Research from the US and Holland suggests that up to a fifth of patients regret changing sex.
20% regret changing genders, over 40% attempt suicide.

This is not a problem you can solve "from the heart outward."

Actually, Jenner has the best of both worlds: the acclaim of his "boldness" in coming out as a woman, and the retention of his "wedding tackle" which means he can always back out should being a woman become tiresome or the attention diminish, whichever comes first.

if bruce is truly committed, as he has previously said, to being "a real woman", why is he dragging around a nasty misogynous penis?
