Gender Therapists

A good gender therapist will not put you through an inquisition to prove your gender to them. They will be helpful and knowledgeable about Trans issues and be able to provide referrals to services that will help you transition. They will screen you for co morbid psychiatric issues and determine that you demonstrate that you have a firm knowledge of the risks that come with transition.

If you get a gender therapist that tries to critique your wardrobe or deportment, or criticize you for not conforming to all their preconceived notions of femininity, fire that person and find a new therapist.

Hugz and luv,

A "good" gender therapist, as opposed to one how is not just running an assembly line to make money, damned-well better make you prove your gender to them.

It will save you putting a bullet in your head years later while chanting "What have I done?"

I will take my cue on this one from the gender therapists who are doing the work.

Not from a layman who has a pack of theories.

If your Gender Therapist is running an inquisition and requiring you to jump through hoops to get your letters they are not good therapists.

The only thing they should be doing is therapising, not running an inquisition.
