One study shows that using hormones to prevent the onset of puberty has positive results for transgender youth.
"Lead Author Dr. Annelou de Vries explained to CBS News that puberty suppression is a ‘fully reversible medical intervention’ and the extra time allows the young people to work out their struggles related to gender dysphoria before taking permanent steps toward a transition. As a result, they ‘have the lifelong advantage of a body that matches their gender identities without the irreversible body changes of a low voice or beard growth or breasts, for example.’
"The participants in the study underwent transition-related surgeries on average around the age of 21. At that time, they were no longer experiencing mental health consequences related to gender dysphoria, their quality of life and happiness levels were on par with their non-transgender peers, and none expressed any regret about delaying puberty or transitioning."
just so you know what is going on in my country right now:
- votes came in for independence 45% yes 55% no
- media very “”no”” centred and bias
- unionists are now attacking yes voters
- a seventeen year old girl has been stabbed
- they are burning our saltire giving nazi salutes
- our first minister resigns
please signal boost this
Okay, so, I’m a Scot (and I voted Yes and was utterly gutted that the vote went the way it did) but - whilst, yes, there was a bit of a stramash that went on for a few hours, involving a pretty small number of people in Glasgow city centre (and another, smaller, one in Dundee) last night, the have actually been NO reports of any stabbings, there is no civil unrest and we do not need any signal boosting of this nature. The few that fell to violence appear to have been thugs looking for a fight, not anyone actually protesting or making any kind of reasonable political statement.
What we DO need is time to let ourselves draw back together, to capitalise on the EXTRAORDINARY level of political engagement we have - 84.6% of eligible voters voted, including 16 & 17 year olds who were allowed to vote for the first time - and continue the conversations we’ve all been having for years now - including many, many people who have never really felt politics were something that affected them - and for ALL of US to move FORWARD to build up our nation (within the UK) into something we are ALL JUSTIFIABLY proud of (and hopefully make sure that the UK government now delivers on the promises it made - what you CAN SIGNAL BOOST PLEASE is this petition: https://secure.38degrees.org.uk/page/s/promise-for-Scotland#petition that requests that they do that)

Hey the thing I reblogged earlier reminded me to mention this:
I can promise all my followers that I do not post or reblog jump scares, ever, because A) I don’t like them and they suck, and B) I know at least a few of my followers have anxiety in one form or another and I’m not going to be that jerk.
So yes. There will be no jump scares from this blog, just wanted to ease your minds preemptively.
