SCIENCE: Transgender conversion therapy linked to psychological distress, study says.

Conversion therapy may be leading more transgender people to attempt suicide, new research shows.

Those who underwent gender identity conversion attempts were more likely to experience suicidal thoughts in the last 12 months or severe mental distress in the previous month, according to research published Wednesday in JAMA Psychiatry. Previous work has shown about 180,000 people in the United States have gone through some form of this therapy.

Traditional medicine was very cautious about this, in recognition that the true disorder is rare, and that interventions are dangerous. Now it’s everywhere. This is a dereliction of medical duty, driven by an irresponsible fad among our irresponsible, hysterical, fad-prone elites.
