Death by Misplaced Compassion

A British transgender teen killed herself, supposedly because the school wouldn’t let her change her name.

A transgender teenager who killed himself “was angry with [his] school” after it refused to grant him permission to officially change his name, an inquest into his death has heard.
Leo Etherington had come out at home and at school – but teachers at Wycombe high school, an all-girls grammar school, told the 15-year-old that he could not change his name on the register for another year.
Giving evidence at an inquest into his son’s death, Martin Etherington said: “The school told him he had to be 16 to change his name. He said he was angry with the school.

I’m sorry, but if the kid offed herself over that… for that matter… couldn’t wait a few months … I don’t think you can call this a case of “bigotry-caused suicide.” That is, apparently, what you are supposed to think it is.

I wonder if the adults in this teenager’s life recognized the profound psychological problems she was obviously struggling with? Were they afraid to confront her for fear of being called bigots or H8Rs? Perhaps, losing their jobs and being publicly stigmatized for their ‘Hate Crime?” Or, were they merely blinded by the glow of their own virtue signaling as they praised Louise for her ‘courage’ and added ‘Transgender Teen’ to their collection of human Pokémon?

The politically correct belief is that the way to treat gender dysphoria is by indulging the sufferer’s delusion that they should be the opposite sex; that surgical and chemical mutilation of their body into a crude facsimile of the other sex will reconcile mind and body and resolve the disorder. What if this thinking is wrong? What if gender dysphoria is just a symptom or manifestation of more profound psychological issues that a sex-change merely papers over?

  1. Truly I wonder what is more appalling to hear about or witness.

    To hear about an imbalanced teenager who made the absurd choice to dump their life after being denied instant gratification of their social ego vs what took mother nature millions of years to set up —

    or to witness a society hell bent on accelerating its race to the bottom against reason, prudence, natural law… or pretty much anything and everything that is now deemed repugnant and intolerable by the genius social engineers obsessive compulsive writers on Salon, Vogue, … ?

    What if? The progenitors of gender reassignment surgeries determined from long term empirical data studies that GID cannot be cured through genital mutilation. The 2%ers choose to remain in the bizarro world.

  5. Very good, rjligier. The thing that bothers me from a legal standpoint is that it sounds like the school was upholding the law by telling zer to wait until zhe was 16, and in spite of that law, the school is going to be the bad guy. This is the problem with the liberal agenda and our kids: stick it to the man if you don’t like what he tells you…who cares about consequences…so now, zhe doesn’t get to grow up, zer friends and family get to be survivors of a loved ones suicide, the school will likely sued for wrongful death or something similar, and liberal mouthpieces will praise zer for trying to live zer truth and condemn society for not accepting said truth…and all of this will be due 2% of the population of the world

  6. Healthy people don’t kill themselves over clerical problems. When the state I live in got the gender wrong on my driver’s license (I’m not trans, the DMV just screwed up) I didn’t contemplate suicide.

    Suicide isn’t something to anonymously trivialise behind a keyword in regards to someone you have never met before. Regardless of what you feel and why, he was a human being. Have some empathy and respect.

  8. Somehow I can’t help but think that there’s a fair amount of social Darwinism at play in a lot of these cases. If you can’t handle being slighted due to a lack of recognition or services for your gender dysphoria, how will you ever cope with some of the really big curveballs life throws at you?

  10. Thank you, CrayCray….as a survivor of a parent’s suicide, your comment in regard to the trivialization of what this young man did is very much appreciated by me. This young man obviously had some issues and his decision, although very irrational and pointless, was made through the lens of mental illness, which is never funny or trivial.
