The ethics committee at Bath Spa University, a public university in England, barred a graduate student in psychotherapy from studying transgender people who regret having reassignment surgery. James Caspian says he was told that allowing him to pursue such research could offend people and expose the university to criticism on social media.

    1. I am utterly SHOCKED to learn that NOT offending the “tranny brigade” of PC people is WAY more important than the actual happiness of trannies and potential trannies!!!

      Speaking of such things, there are biochemical, often off-label, solutions to your urges towards becoming a tranny, which MIGHT actually lead to better results! To MORE happiness, for many potential trannies! To becoming happy with your body, as it already is! Imagine that!

      See https://www.drugs.com/condition/ … (delete me here) … gender-dysphoria.html for “Off Label” uses of drugs for suppressing “gender dysphoria”? 6 drugs listed in web link above, to include (pretty obviously) testosterone?

      Also use below as search-string?
      “Transgender woman, who claims pills for male hair-loss sparked gender change, opens up about ‘life and death struggle'”

      Concerns male-hair-loss “?drug Propecia, called finasteride, to halt the onset of hereditary baldness”, which feminized his / her body, and brought around the desire for a sex change, according to him-now-her.

      So then Propecia AKA (generic) finasteride sounds like a darned-good choice for an off-label drug use, if you are female, contemplating sex-change to male, and worrying that your marriage might not survive such a sex change? Which is a strong possibility! Try this first, to see if maybe you’d like to stay female, before you make drastic changes?

  1. They told Galileo the exact same thing.

  2. Sounds to me like having no balls is becoming a British tradition.

    1. And requirement.

      1. You know who else was deficient in the balls department?

  3. James Caspian says he was told that allowing him to pursue such research could offend people and expose the university to criticism on social media.

    “You cannot engage in scientific inquiry because muh feelz.”

    Like the parent trying way too hard to be cool

  5. Customs official: Do you have anything to declare?

    Avi: Yeah, don’t go to England.

  6. I’m pretty sure that science being less important to a university than social media is one of the signs of the apocalypse.
