Yes, but it's probably something that they decided together. I hear my parents do this before we go out in a group, they share finances. my mom will say "Bill, let's pick up the tab on this, ok?" my dad says "Ok." And he is the one that actually grabs the tab because they are of a generation where the man actually grabs the tab even though the CC is a shared account. [ Reply | More ]

np. just a note, my dad and dh are dentists. It can be difficult in that the overhead of your whole office is directly based on what you yourself produce. The more you work, the more you earn, and when you take time off, the money that comes in to cover overhead drastically drops. Tooth and back pain are also the biggest excuses for drug seekers to look for pain meds. Ultimately there is a markedly higher suicide and addiction rate for dentists. [ Reply | More ]

MIL is demanding and expects the whole family to be present at all of these events.

The medical literature is regret is reported by 1-2% of post-op transexuals. If that's a significant proportion, then ok. And there's a lot more to it than suicide - reassignment surgery is associated with significant reduction in gender dysphoria, and significant improvement in quality of life, in 80% of patients.

"Gender dysphoria" is a myth. In any case, rates of depression/suicidal ideation do not decrease post-op. Transgenders frequently blame it on not being able to "pass," but in reality it's because gender reassignment does not address the underlying psychiatric issues. [ Reply | More ]

False. Your not believing in it doesn't make it a myth. As to rates of depression post-op, see the meta-analysis of studies including almost 2,000 patients that I posted as a starting point. [ Reply | More ]

The studies are based upon "self-reporting," which any medical investigator knows is not reliable. Most of the studies also lacked controls. In other words, how do you know that any improvement is based upon the surgery or the passage of time? Most children who have feelings of "gender dysphoria" spontaneously lose them over the time. Even the meta-analysis calls the evidence "[v]ery low quality." [ Reply | More ]

This is true when gender reassignment occurs past puberty. If gender reassignment begins before puberty, it is much more successful. [ Reply | More ]

More successful in the post-op transgendereds "passing" but not more successful in alleviating psychiatric disorders like depression. [ Reply | More ]

Go to therapy. Posting here and other sites over and over because your dh messed with you won't change anything. Attacking Bruce Jenner won't change anything. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Surveys indicate that between 1/4 and 1/3 of European Jewry are considering leaving, due to a rise in anti-Semitism. The top destinations for emigration are Israel, the US, and Canada. These are facts. Question presented: Should the US take affirmative steps to attract European Jews? Does your answer change depending on whether the Jews are Orthodox? Discuss. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
