Politics Supersedes Science: University Bans Transgender Research Because It Could "Offend People"
One of the most damaging aspects of leftist propaganda is the notion that mental illness should be encouraged rather than treated. This is especially apparent in the case of individuals suffering from gender dysphoria — a condition linked to a staggering 40% suicide rate.
Individuals suffering from transgenderism are regularly discouraged by the left from seeking proper mental health treatment for their symptoms. Instead, they are encouraged to exacerbate them with hormone treatment and even gender reassignment surgery. This is akin to telling a schizophrenic that the voices she hears are real.
Of course, it is the mentally vulnerable that suffers in the name of political power.
Disturbingly, the radical left has penetrated academia so deeply that even research into the trend of regret among those that have elective gender reassignment surgery has been suppressed.
At the Bath Spa University in England, a new study that would explore the rate of people that elect to reverse back to their birth genders after reassignment procedures has been barred by the administration. Their reasoning? It could hurt someone's feelings.
From The Independent:
Bath Spa administrators say they're currently investigating Caspian’s complaint. Of course, they won’t comment on the matter.
Stay alert. Stay alive.
