On her Facebook page, Dorman posted her final post in an apparent suicide note saying goodbye to loved ones. She began her statement saying: 'I'm sorry.'(Snip) The Office of Transgender Initiatives in San Francisco, California, confirmed the news on their Twitter account. Dorman was a constant and persevering force for trans-rights. According to her LinkedIn, Dorman volunteered at the San Francisco LGBT Center as an instructor for Transcode, 'a series of classes aimed at training transgender members of our community

Comments:

From the article, this person was widely accepted and even celebrated as a transgender person, living in San Francisco yet, and still winds up as one of the 40% who kill themselves. Should society continue to encourage this mental illness, or do too many people make money from it?

Rest in peace. Trans people have a very high rate of suicide. My experience with them indicates that being trans is usually just one of many psychiatric problems they have. To let them pursue their delusions without intervention or treatment is not helping them.

OP makes a very good point. This person may have “felt” like he was a woman, and had things done to his body to try to mimic a woman, but he always knew what was inside. The fame did nothing for him, the accomplishment outside of show business did nothing for him, because deep inside he had doubts, knew he was living a lie. He foisted that lie upon a little girl, whom I imagine he did love but whom he did not love enough to spare her the grief of losing the only parent she knew. That isn’t love. The time has come to stop snickering at drag queens, get them out of our libraries, stop trying to normalize these pathologies, and protect our children from having their minds warped before they even know what “sex” is. I don’t see any courage here… And only the wrong kind of “inspiration”… Just a drama queen to the very end. Capital Q.

FTA: "The comedy show was slammed by critics are 'anti-trans' and offensive for a series at jokes targeting trans people. In an unexpected epilogue, Chapelle tells a story about Dorman attending many of his shows and laughing at every joke. Dorman reportedly thanked Chapelle for 'normalizing transgenders.'"The narrative is that Transgender-Americans need to be embraced and celebrated even more, and we do, to the point of having drag queens reading LGBTQ-positive books to young children in public libraries nationwide. Blaming the rest of us appears to be off the table; now what?

Progressives are opposed to Liberty because they know that they can't be trusted with it. They shouldn't have guns cuz they are too 'emotional'. They need substance control cuz they suck up all the drugs they can find. They shouldn't vote cuz they go for the "Gimme-dat" fraudster every time. Therefore the adults in our society must surrender their God given RIGHTS because the Nancy boys are just too fragile to be burdened with them.

Stop referring to him as "she"! This person was a male, and no surgery or hope can change that. They are just trying to be PC when the media calls him she. Why don't they just refer to him as a sick person, or psycho?

Trans are deeply troubled people caught up in confusion and insecurity, and truly mentally ill --- just as much as if they thought they were a different species than the one they were at birth. Loosening or scrambling their bodily wholeness, and getting them habituated to chronic hormonal abnormality, does not help. And the pundits, opinion-leaders, therapists, doctors and surgeons who support and/or profit from this, are guilty of abuse at the very least. Now they want to make it illegal nationwide for anyone to offer these suffering ones genuine help, a chance to regain normalcy. My sorrow is directed to the victims; and my anger, to the enablers.

I learned somewhere that there is a high suicide rate amongst women who had surgically “improved” their bodies for cosmetic reasons: Botox, lips, breasts, derrières, you name it. I can only imagine the affect to the psyche for both sexes to yield themselves to the scalpel to actually remove the parts they were born with and known all their lives. The post-surgery depression has to be profound. Here, we read about a famous tran’s suicide. How many trans out there, we don’t hear or read about, kill themselves?

Nowhere in this article is why he committed suicide. He didn't mention why. Doesn't it matter why? For those who look at the suicide rate among transgenders as compared with their representation in the country's population, doesn't it matter that these trans people can't live with their choice? Maybe this fad of "transitioning" will pass, but maybe a few lives can be saved by DIScouraging trans-ing rather than encouraging it. What does it take to tell people that they cannot live normal lives denying their sex? Does no one have the courage to speak out?

Suicide is selfish. When you are part of a family, part of a community, you owe it to others to ask for help, and take the help that is given. The rest of this story is just clickbait to stir the culture wars. Don’t indulge them.

beginning to believe this whole transgender thing is all about gays/lesbians etal who are deeply uncomfortable with the idea that they're attracted to the same sex. So they convince themselves that they're really the opposite sex, but someone (GOD?) screwed up the blueprint. So they start out cross dressing and when that isn't enough they look for ways to actually "be" other. But they'll never really be other, because that whole XX and XY thing gets in the way. And to support this, there are many in various professions who have no scruples. They will support these pathologies as long as there is money to be made.

Perhaps those who consider themselves transgender will commit suicide at the same rate whether they physically alter their bodies or not but there's money to be made and up until recently they have been an untapped resource. Race, sexual preference, unwanted pregnancies, various neuroses, religions, criminality, anorexia and obesity have all been or are being tapped for their maximum cash and political value. Now, after casting about for another subject to milk dry, society's most cynical bring us a new cause: transgenderism. Plastic surgeons and drug companies can make a mint out of convincing more and more people to transition, not to mention the absolute gold mine of new preachy story lines with which to sell novels, self-help books, political treatises, movies, TV shows, videos and music. Moral superiors like lawyers, social workers and politicians and an army of (otherwise unemployable) transvestite sensitivity trainers will find income at America's largest and most lucrative corporations as well as in schools and government organizations including the military. Meanwhile, the Long March through our institutions continues, using an amoral approach to capitalism, and we can only dread whatever comes next after this cash cow has been rendered fully milked.

Why isn't the first line of treatment testing for low levels of the hormones appropriate to their sex? If the levels are low, then more estrogen for females (XX) and more testosterone for males (XY). Why jump to the opposite regimen, neutering them?

Washington—Cory Booker is trying to get the numbers to add up to 2020. The U.S. senator from New Jersey will be one of 12 Democratic candidates on the stage Tuesday for the fourth presidential debate in Ohio (and has qualified for the fifth one to be held Nov. 20 in Georgia). He’s done well in the first three debates, is expanding his field operations in the early caucus and primary states, and continues to land key endorsements.

A new report by the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee reaffirms what the White House refuses to accept: Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help then-candidate Donald Trump and to hurt his presidential rivals.

Shepard Smith was the worst thing on Fox News not because he was an anti-Trump leftist, but because he lied and lied and lied, claiming he was not. There are plenty of anti-Trump leftists on Fox News, and that’s a good thing. It is also to the eternal credit of Fox that, unlike its competition on the far left — CNN and MSNBC — Fox actually airs a legitimate diversity of opinions on the issues of the day, most especially President Trump. That was not Shepard Smith. No, rather than come out of the partisan closet,(Snip) he chose to hide like a coward behind a shield of objective truth,
