Key facts on sexual and reproductive health for transgender people: (Okay, already a problem. In truth there is no such thing as a
transgendered person. Male and female transitioners are merely males and females who have cosmetically changed their bodies utilizing the male medical machine.
1. Transgender people may have sexual partners who are men, women, or both. A transgender person’s partners or sexual history cannot be assumed from their gender identity or the gender they were assigned at birth. (the SEX of the person in question NEVER changes, regardless of their disorder or the male medical machines interferences in their disorder.
2. Transgender people need preventive health screenings. Standard preventive health screenings are generally recommended for the body parts a patient has regardless of that patient’s gender identity, including breast, cervical, and prostate cancer screenings. (True. Regardless of their disordered thinking, males and females with the trans disorder do need preventive health care. The problem lies in their seeking that prevention. They are being transitioned in order to cure their body dysphoria, only to have that dysphoria return after their trans high wears off and often times return with an increase. Preventive health care forces the trans mind to admit their true nature, ie. sex. Many would rather die, than admit their mistake.
3. Transgender people are at high risk for HIV and other STI infections. According to the CDC, transgender people experience HIV infection at four times the national population level. African-American and Latino/a transgender people are at especially high risk for HIV and other STIs. (I suspect that number may be higher that that, because of how those with this disorder ID themselves. I suspect also that female transitioners are the sex who are predominantly at risk and getting HIV and STDs.)
4. Many transgender
men who have sex with men are at risk for unintended pregnancy as well as STIs. Transgender
men who have sex with men report high rates of unprotected vaginal and
anal intercourse. Some transgender men report being more concerned about
pregnancy than HIV and other STIs. (A high percentage of female lesbian transitioners once on T for a bit, will find themselves being attracted to males. They will then seek out sexual encounters with gay men who are more likely to have sex with them. Many female transitioners have reported that rather than demand her male partner wear a condom, she will have sex without because she fears being taken seriously as a male. Female transitioners also make the mistake that because their periods have ceased, they cannot get pregnant. Not true.
5. Marginalization and abuse increase health risks for transgender people. Transgender people face high rates of social and economic marginalization, as well as high rates of physical and sexual abuse. Transgender and gender nonconforming youth are particularly at risk for sexual abuse and for engaging in commercial or survival sex. (Not true. Male transitioners usually transition after they have established a career. With their male privilege firmly intact, few who transition lose their careers. Younger male transitioners with their male privilege firmly intact continue utilizing their male privilege to advance themselves in their chosen fields. The only male transitioners who suffer in this area are the tiny percent of homosexual males who transition, minorities much more than whites. Already on the outskirts of acceptable white society, these men will turn to prostitution to earn money for illegal hormones and monies for cosmetic surgeries in order to attain some version of patriarchy's hyper femininity.
6. Transgender people are often reluctant to seek sexual and reproductive health care. One in three transgender people, and 48% of transgender men, have delayed or avoided preventive health care such as pelvic exams or STI screening out of fear of discrimination or disrespect. One survey reported that half of transgender men did not receive annual pelvic exams. Reasons included discomfort with the physical exam due to gender issues (40%), lack of money or insurance (13%), lack of a medical provider they were comfortable with (13%), and thinking they did not need pelvic exams (7%). Another survey found that transgender teens, including those at risk for unintended pregnancy, were reluctant to go to a family planning clinic. (See number 2)
7. Transgender people lack access to relevant health information. Sexual health education for youth and adults rarely addresses transgender people’s bodies and identities. For example, transgender
men who have
sex with men report a lack of adequate information about their sexual
health at rates as high as 93.8%. (True. Because health care providers are as bound and gagged by the very same Gender Straight Jacket that creates the trans disorder in the first place!)
8. Providers often lack appropriate clinical knowledge. While treating transgender patients does not require special expertise, providers often lack basic knowledge about transgender people and their health needs. In a nationwide survey, 50% of transgender people reported having to teach a health care provider about providing appropriate care. (See number 7)
9. Many providers still turn transgender patients away. In national surveys, 19% to 27% of transgender people report being turned away by health care providers who refused to provide care for them. Outright refusals of care occur across all types of providers, including providers of sexual and reproductive health care. (True to a point. Many male and female transitioners arent upfront with their true sex to health care providers, again because of their MENTAL disorder. Rather than face who they truly are, they try to deceive (like they deceive themselves) health care providers which in turn causes various issues with health care services. Some however will be turned away in the same way many gays and lesbians are refused basic care, usually in rural areas and usually because they are perceived as gay or lesbian.
