Trans Adults Officially Being Detransitioned In Missouri: "I'm Scared And Don't Know What To Do"
The Missouri ban outlines numerous stipulations for clinics offering care, effectively making it illegal or too legally precarious to provide such services. One particularly troublesome requirement mandates that transgender individuals must have depression and anxiety resolved prior to receiving gender-affirming care. Coupled with another condition stating that dysphoria must be "intense," clinics that successfully address depression and anxiety to comply with the first stipulation may then be informed that their patients' dysphoria was not "intense" enough. This creates a clear Catch-22, particularly since gender-affirming care often alleviates depression and anxiety on its own.
...For transgender adults already receiving care, a questionable "grandfather" clause purportedly allows them to continue treatment. However, in practice, this is not the case. Clinics must still retroactively adhere to all other regulations, even for transgender adults who have been grandfathered into their care. Compliance with some of these regulations is unattainable, such as evaluating "transgender social contagion," an unproven pseudoscientific concept that clinics have no means to assess.
Additionally, the mandate requires clinics to maintain 15-year follow-up records, distribute misleading informational pamphlets, ensure that patients are evaluated by a psychologist for unspecified developmental psychology concerns, and maintain extensive paperwork detailing compliance with these regulations. Ultimately, the directive imposes sudden and strict infrastructure requirements, similar to Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers (TRAP) laws used to close abortion clinics. As a result, transgender individuals' access to medication is effectively restricted or eliminated at all levels.
for their hatred and republican think this will help move them into the WH 2024. It is all so damn sick. IMO most of these haters need some serious psychological help.
that of course are Christian.
Things are just getting worse and worse and worse! How is this even happening and is there nothing that can be done to stop these EVIL fascist assholes!
We are witnessing now in 2023 America, what happened in 1930s Germany. I am so scared and mad at what is going on. Vote!!!!!!!!!!!
It's incredible how they are persecuting people. If you can, I would get out of Missouri. I think it will only get worse. It is all so stupid and sad. The evilness of these politicians is astounding. Many politicians IMO need some serious mental help.
Because that is all they do cause the people misery.
is inflict pain, misery, suffering and persecution on people. The GOP never has interesting ideas for a better society ... all that talk about is persecution, the American Taliban and passing laws injurious to people. And they love hatred, money and power.
