Mental illness and trans identities often interact. I say this as someone with mental illness, and as someone who used to identify as trans. I no longer do — because, in my case, one of the things that helped me (there were quite a few), was treating my delusions and psychosis.
This isn't to say that all trans people have psychosis — I am not suggesting that. But I am suggesting that, in many cases, treatment for mental illness should be prioritised and given more focus. Doctors are too quickly suggesting life altering surgeries for trans people.
I know of people who have literally had one or two sessions with a gender therapist, and been given the all clear for high doses of hormones and surgery. Why isn't the patient's mental health discussed further? Why is this process so rushed?

There are currently 3 major factors hindering the progress of #transgender acceptance:

1. People have been spoon-fed too much misinformation about us, most of which originated from #radfem circles -- no surprise here -- and then got picked up by conservative media. (1/4)
2. Too many writers would rather engage in pseudo-philosophical debates on whether trans women are "categorically female" while ignoring the rich ethnocultural data about the societal roles found in various cultures analogous to what the West now dubs "trans women". (2/4)
3. Trans activists also have themselves to blame by focusing on the messy, unfalsifiable "gender theory" instead of practicalities -- like how transition usually takes years of intensive resocialization and how HRT transforms us physically, psychologically and sexually. (3/4)

The use of porn to bully and victimise female paramedics is across the U.K. From Bristol 'Female paramedics have been 'forced to watch pornography, give sexual favours and have been physically propositioned' while working at the ambulance service which serves Bristol'.

It’s so funny and ironic how #liberals call #RadicalFeminism#WhiteFeminism”, yet, I’ve come across so much actual #racism directed at me and other #GenderCritical black women from self-righteous #trans activists/allies and libfems. 🙄
I’ve gotten more racism from that crowd in the past two weeks than I’ve gotten from any #RadicalFeminists in two months. Or any amount of time. Liberals routinely erase the radical #WomenOfColor from history who either called themselves #radfems or influenced radical feminism so
that they can call radical feminism “white”, misappropriate #Intersectionality from #BlackFeminism to try and justify including males in #feminism, argue that “transwomen are women the same way Black women are women”, (racist and dehumanizing comparison of black women to males),
