In looking at the replies to this (free republic) there is almost zero understanding of this problem. Many seem to think it's just a matter of getting the right therapy or pill. Some allude to inhuman shock therapy and why aren't they getting it. Or that being Transgendered is the cause of the suicides, It isn't! The real cause of the suicide rates is the fact that the person can't cope with society's wrong impression of it. Transgenderism doesn't cause one to be depressed, it's the thought of how some in society will react. Eventually, the person "Hit's the wall" and no longer cares what society thinks, their minds and bodies are telling them that they must transition.
