Because transgenderism is the radical chic cause du jour, the media and Democrat politicians are failing to ask important medical questions. For instance, are there health hazards associated with "transitioning"? Not just the preparations or surgery, but maintenance.
Male breast cancer is rare. If, however, a male is receiving estrogen treatment as part of his "gender-reassignment" therapy (including maintenance), does that raise his risk of developing breast cancer?
Likewise, it's my understanding that men are naturally less susceptible to osteoporosis than women because men naturally have greater bone density. If, however, a boy is given hormone blockers to postpost the onset of puberty, to facilitate his "transition," doesn't that raise his risk of developing osteoporosis?
And presumably, this would work in reverse for females who receive androgen treatment as part of their "gender-reassignment" therapy (including maintenance). Doesn't that raise her susceptibility to some typically male medical conditions?
In fact, I assume men and women who undergo those hormone treatments end up combining the medical liabilities of their actual sex with additional liabilities of the opposite sex due to hormone therapy.
I'm no expert, but these are questions that need to be ask before laws are passed.
