Words from a Psychiatrist

In 2017, I spoke with a man who has been a psychiatrist for a few decades. He brought up the topic of transgenderism. He told me that if he, or any other psychiatrist tried to counsel a patient who felt like they were born into the wrong body/sex, they would be fired and lose their medical license to practice. This came straight from the AMA. The psychiatrists in Ohio are forced to push these gender confused people into transgendering. He also told me that 80% of those who transgender end up committing suicide. A high price to pay for anyone. No psychiatrist or counselor should be forcefully stopped, by a law, in helping those who are confused about their sex, especially children. Our brains do not fully form until we are 21. I, myself, never thought that I was not a girl when I was a child. Neither did any other kids that I knew. But we were born in an entirely different world where this nonsense wasn't being rammed down our throats. The kids of today have had this gender fluidity agenda rammed down their throats. And it is confusing them. This seems to be the objective of the LGBTQ group advocates, who have been infiltrating wherever they can to force their agenda onto everyone else. And this needs to end, now. All of us have the right to choose, which includes counseling. No one has the right to take that away from anyone, including the AMA. In ending, the LGBTQ only make up 3% of the worlds population. Seems that their agenda is to confuse and force others to be like them, so that one day, they will be the majority. But that will never happen. Cannot force heterosexuals to become what they are not. If they try, they will experience a major push back which has already began.
