My Casualty Report in Salvo Magazine (Issue #45) gives recent statistics on issues affecting our culture. My latest Casualty Report is politically incorrect even though the statistics are from well-known journals and media sources. It is on transgenderism and specifically addresses the number of teens who identify as transgender, and then after puberty accept their biological sex. It also reports how many gender confirmation surgeries have been done in the past two years. However, it does not report on the number of de-transition surgeries because there have been no formal studies on de-transitioning. Here’s why: A doctor and several other surgeons who perform gender confirmation surgeries noticed an increase in people wanting to de-transition. The doctor wanted to conduct a formal study on this, but the university shut down the research because it was “potentially politically incorrect.” Even though this seems like a valid medical research question, politics prevailed.
