STEVEN CROWDER (HOST): Look, is anyone surprised when it's a 42% attempted suicide rate? You don't have that anywhere else in the demographic. That would suggest some kind of mental proclivity toward extreme behavior and I don't think it's helping people to simply enable it. I don't want — I don't want 42% of transgenders — 41% depending on the stat you use, it's right in there. It's very rare that you get multiple studies that come in in that 41, 42%. Like, they're all like, within a point of each other. Pre-op and post-op. I don't want nearly half of all transgenders to attempt suicide. I want that to be lower. Guess what doesn't work: “you saying, you're all good, you're a woman.” It doesn't help. It makes it worse. And it makes it, potentially, slightly worse — people are afraid to study it — but we know at least one percentage worse, which really is statistically insignificant — if you go through the surgery.
Let me guess, this is an inference now, that's the data. The inference is: I would imagine that if you have a transgender individual — 41%, 42% likely to commit suicide, OK — goes through transition where you have a man, put him on estrogen — which, by the way, we know causes depressive symptoms — cut off his cock, I don't think he comes out ahead. I think when you say you're transgender and now we're going to give you the surgery, which may make it impossible for you to ever achieve sexual climax again, I would, I would — I'd off myself. I'd be like a Japanese businessman, just plummeting.
