We wrote previously how transgenderism serves as the instrument for the left’s nihilistic agenda of destruction, since it devastates both the individual and society under the banner of a single ideology. We discussed transgenderism’s ruinous effects on the individuals who fall prey to it, many of whom perish by suicide. Sadly, even most of those who do not take their own lives or succumb to the injuries of their sex reassignment treatment have little hope of ever becoming productive and contributing members of their society.
For one thing, most transgender people are unable to keep stable, long-term employment. This is unsurprising, since the psychological and physical damage they sustain as a result of their “transition” makes it nearly impossible for them to become effective members of the workforce.
It is not difficult to see why. The truth is that the state of mind and the character traits that this lifestyle engenders preclude most of those who participate in it from functioning as good employees and workers. As many readers already know, trans people are by nearly every metric a very troubled demographic. Most of them suffer from a high degree of psychological and emotional instability. Their attempted suicide rate is nearly fifty percent, which is more than twenty times that of rest of the population. Most of the rest suffer from very high rates of depression and other psychological disturbances. The rate of drug and alcohol abuse among transgenders is 300 percent of that of their normal counterparts. According to Psychology Today, trans individuals suffer from an “astonishingly elevated rate of mental health issues.” To make matters worse, most trans people – and especially transsexuals – suffer from persistent physical challenges and illnesses related to their lifestyle. According to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, transgender persons are at an increased risk of a number of “chronic diseases, cancers, and mental health problems.” Their rate of HIV, for example, is three times the national average.
To succeed in the workplace, one needs to possess qualities such as resilience, steadfastness, reliability, discipline and commitment. Suicidal, depressed, mentally unstable, substance abusing and chronically ill people, however, are generally incapable of either possessing or developing such qualities. On the contrary, such people tend to exhibit opposite qualities, which make them undesirable to employers. They include absenteeism, truancy, unreliability, dishonesty, waywardness and such.
According to the American Addiction Center,
“[T]ransgender people being at a greater risk for participating in risky behavior, such as sex work and/or drug and/or alcohol abuse. Transgender individuals are much more likely to get HIV/AIDS than the general population, which itself may be a source of mental health distress that exacerbates substance abuse compulsions.”
Such individuals will obviously have difficulties finding and keeping steady and gainful employment. Statistics convey this sad truth. According to the LGBTQ advocacy group Glaad, the level of unemployment in the trans community is three times that of the national average. For transgender people of color, the rate of unemployment is nearly thirty percent.
