The Scottish government proposes. Advocates say the plans are necessary to meet the transgender people are treated with Dignity , But a woman who used hormones and surgery, A Man to regret the decision, she described the proposed reforms as "dangerous".Sinead Watson says, That you don't have any problems with your sex, like a child. It was not until they began to grow into a woman in the Teens, the was a feeling of uncertainty, and it began to your body like and feel uncomfortable in your own skin. When she was in her early 20s, told you, you typed in Google "something along the lines of" I'm a woman, I wish I was A Man ". "The results page introduced Ms Watson to the concept of gender dysphoria, caused as discomfort or Stress due to a mismatch between biological sex and gender identity. she says she read The List of Symptoms - like feeling, a separation of the body and the resentment for the sexual features, and thought: "This is what I have. "After consultation with your GP, Ms Watson was in Glasgow, one of four in Scotland (The Others are Edinburgh, Inverness and Aberdeen). It is also home to The Nation 's only such institution for children. "I was very aware That I was not to change literally my gender, But I thought if I could transform me in such an extent That I went and lived in a socially and legally as A Man , [then] That would be the solution for all the problems That I had," she says. in the next couple of years, Sinead consultations at the Sandyford had; changed its name to Sean; began taking testosterone; and finally, after two years on an NHS waiting list, had to remove a surgery to the Breasts. "After The Double mastectomy in the year 2017, there was a period of bliss," she says. Soon, however, "the novelty of That wore off and I thought, you know, why I still hate myself?"For Ms Watson in the three years since the painful. Now she has concluded That the conversion of a fright was not of error, That they should, in fact, the Symptoms of gender dysphoria, But individual physical and Mental Health problems, she says, were diagnosed and treated as such. For now, Sinead, Sean remains, legally at least. You did not change your gender on your passport and your driver's license But Her Birth certificate and is now trying to figure out How To change it back. Ms Watson says she has serious concerns about a proposed change in the Scottish laws, which make it easier would be to change a birth certificate from male to female or Vice versa, and may lower the age at which you could do from 18 to 16. What are the laws? Protesters are shown, which apply outside Holyrood last June calling for a reform of the Gender Recognition Act Since 2005, trans people have been able to, and a British court called to enable the Gender Recognition Panel for a gender recognition certificate you have a change in your birth certificate (passports and driver's licences can be changed easier). in the rule currently, the successful applicant must have the diagnosis of gender dysphoria and must swear an oath That you live in your new gender for two years, and That you intend to do this for the rest of your life. you must have a medical report on your diagnosis and a second in detail all of the relevant treatment or surgery. For more information, such as utility bills, to prove how you have lived, can also be requested by The System controller. The Scottish government is The Process "less stressful". Among the proposals, the applicant would no longer need to be a clinical diagnosis or medical reports, and the two-year period be reduced to three months. This would be followed, if a request was accepted to three months for reflection before the gender recognition certificate is issued. cases are handled by the Registrar General for Scotland, eliminating the need for the panel. applicant would always swear a oath to confirm That it intends permanently in their acquired gender and to make a false statement would be punishable. Ms Watson regarding some aspects of the proposed new legislation as "dangerous" and voices concerns That many more people in your situation, such as The Number of people increases, the transition. you will ensure That Young People are pushed in the direction of a diagnosis of gender dysphoria, through a combination of well-meaning doctors and politicians, and the warm embrace of online trans communities. "It's like a social contagion," she says, tells her own experience. The System was a help to her transition, she argues, But to not help her, as she began to have doubts. "I have no support from Mental Health professionals. She seemed very uncomfortable when I regret-discussed transition. So I'm really happy, That I loved, amazing those who were there to help me. I probably wouldn't be here without you, honest. " Sinead changed her gender on her passport, Ms Watson said she was particularly concerned about the idea That the age limit for legally changing gender roles could be lowered to 16. "If you don't actually have gender dysphoria and you have to go That route, you'd end up Like Me where you irreversibly changed their bodies with hormones and surgeries, and you feel humiliated, you feel ashamed and you feel completely betrayed by the people, allowed this to happen," she says. NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, which runs the Sandyford, said The Clinic follows internationally agreed guidelines. Patients complete assessments of psychiatrists, sexual health, doctors, psychologists and occupational therapists, including multiple engagements over a longer period of time to ensure That you completely understand The Process . you said That treatment and support, tailored to individual needs, and the patients were regularly referred to services outside of the hospital, for other health needs, including Mental Health conditions. How many people actually de-transition in the argument. Ms Watson says That she has spoken to "dozens", and is in a group chat with More Than 50 de-transition, although the nature of Social Media and the desire for anonymity and power to check it is hard to tell their Stories . That The Number of people who de-transition in Scotland between the ages of 18 and 36, or between 1% and 2% of those with the transition. Similar to Sinead Emily Frood says she had no idea she was transgender until she was 17 years old. she was born a boy and lived in her childhood, content with your sex, until it clicked One Day , "suddenly somehow". "I never thought about it... since I had no experience and knowledge of trans people," Ms Frood says, adding with a smile: "It is really crazy. "Now 21, Ms Frood is in her last year of film and Media Studies has changed at Queen Margaret University in Musselburgh, East Lothian, and their appearance dramatically. Not only is she wearing make-up and a colorful blouse, But hormone therapy has stopped the growth of facial hair and distributed muscle and fat, change The Shape of your body and The Contours of your face. Ms Frood, who hopes to One Day win a seat in the Scottish Parliament for the Green Party , used The Personal pronouns "you" and referred to himself as a trans-woman, But she describes herself as a "non-binary" - which means you do not identify as either male or female. "For trans people," she says, "the lines are blurred a little. ""personally, I don't think they identify themselves fully with the femininity in a binary way, But a way somewhere In Between That . Just not the man. If That makes sense. "The current heated discussion about Transgender Rights suggests That many people in the country, for this, in fact, make sense. "The kind of anti-trans rhetoric is used especially in Newspapers and print media is horrendous," says Ms Frood. self-injury and suicide, "too often in our community, because the progression is framed of our rights, as a debate," she says. she looks at critics who insist That gender is an immutable biological fact defined by physical features at birth as ill-informed at best. "Anyone who has either studied More Than higher degree in biology, or did not understand any kind of introduction to sociology That the gender of the work, and not sex," she says. For Ms Frood, the proposed legal changes are welcome, But not far enough. A first advice, including a recommendation That the Scottish government should be recognized That non-binary people is in the right, But the Minister now say That they intend to do this. "We were gutted, completely abandoned, and it is quite shameful to be honest," says Ms Frood. "To see the result of a consultation response has been incredible and it is totally ignored, was devastating. ""What does That have to do with how I live My Life ?", he asks.
