$50 your boyfriend is bi or closeted btw
And that's where the issue comes from, you want to "change people's gender" when our available technology to do so is either imperfect, extremely costly and/or only works on certain people and certain age groups best.
I think we should stop treating transitioning as a panacea to everyone who has identity problems and instead of prescribing them hormones and sending them on their way actually assigning them a proper psychiatrist for long term evaluation. Because as soon as a transition is put on the table whoever opposes it is a racist, sexist, transphobic bigot and the poor person with the identity problems is just like "oh cutting my dick off and eating these pills will fix me"
The end result becomes somebody with a half-functioning sex organ who is still not recognised by straight men as a woman (due to voice/ face/body structure/breast structure etc. So if you're a bisexual guy, this is fine, but then wouldn't you be just as fine dating a cross dressing guy? Or just a normal guy who's gay?
That's where the suicide rate comes from, you have these people with super low self-esteem being told that hormones and a sex change will make them a woman and either half-way through it or once they've done it they realise it's not that viable and they've basically cut down the pool of people they can date even more, irreversibly. I mean I'm not trans but if I went through all that just to make my chances worse I'd wanna kill myself too.
I'm a straight young white guy that's fit with a good job in a metropolis and I still have trouble meeting the right person. I can't even begin to imagine how hard it would be for a trans person. Of course you'd attempt to kill yourself when you realise you have only a miniscule chance of meeting your soulmate in your lifetime, not rocket science.
