    I don't think it does. I think it shows that he knows kids. Having taught 11 - 18 year olds for 30 years in know plenty that would think it 'fun' to sneak into a girl's toilet for 'a laugh' or something more sinister. Open plan unisex toilets are the way to do it. No where to hide.

    Especially with the way they defined the two levels of regret which would fall into that one or sub-one percent within their study.

    There's loads of fancy stats language in the writeup, which is frankly beyond what I can recall from my uni days, but that 1% figure just seems weird.

    The meta study by the NIH even gives weights to what it considers good, fair and poor assessment tools used by the 27 independent studies. The 99% figure is reliable. Also, the Earth is not flat.

    Are you sure? There are groups of people on Reddit and Facebook that say it is

    But is the USA representative of the world?

First you have to see a mental health practitioner, then hormone therapy for quite a while and then maybe surgery. It also appears that the majority of people never go through full surgery after that... Sorry, I didn't get that from Facebook, you can find it on medical sites. Wow isn't just like going to get a tattoo after a drunken night out? There are millions of people that get plastic surgery, I hope you're as outraged by that... As I said, live and let live...

    Funny on how conservatives are very much about choices and liberty when it comes to things like vaccines or guns and hate government interventions but when it comes to choices like these or abortion, all of a sudden it's ok to remove choices...
    Regardless of your dismissal of anecdotal evidence (I never claimed any scientific evidence), you are simply wrong on many matters.

    - First you have to see a mental health practitioner, then hormone therapy for quite a while and then maybe surgery. - Nope. Informed consent is enough in most US states, especially if you are going private.
    - Wow isn't just like going to get a tattoo after a drunken night out? - as with science, nice straw man.
    - There are millions of people that get plastic surgery, I hope you're as outraged by that.. - sure if that plastic surgery is a double mastectomy at 16.
    - Funny on how conservatives - that's a huge - and in this case incorrect - assumption. Don't agree with me? You must be a conservative. Classy.

    Nice straw man. Missing the point, but that's to be expected

    You really are pushing the straw man thing. Is this parody now?

    And not be seen going in or out and no other girls around? Are these boys the ones who identify as female, remember that is what we are talking about.

    Not sure I said it was. Just gave an example of how easy it is to get surgery and that example happened to be in the US.

    I've not looked into other countries. Could be easier, could be more restrictive.
