    You're really not subtle with how you telegraph your contempt for trans people, especially with how you used "lol" three times in this message responding to me. Point being that I'm correct and...

    Right, so clearly the answer is to not be affirming and have even more suicidal teenagers who are upset that they can't transition in the first place.
