Professor James Caspian is a psychotherapist who received a grant from the college he was employed at, Bath Spa University, to study the process of reversing sex change surgery known as de-transitioning. During his study, he discovered that the number of people who underwent sex change surgery and regretted their decision was on the rise. The university decided that his study wasn’t “politically correct,” so they yanked his funding, which tells me any study coming from Bath Spa is only good for lining bird cages or in case you run out of toilet paper.
Professor James Caspian is a psychotherapist whose specialty is transgendered individuals.
In 2014, Caspian had a conversation with Professor Diroslav Djordjevic that sparked curiosity. Djordjevic is the “world-leading genital reconstructive surgeon.”
Djordjevic mentioned to Caspian interesting empirical evidence; his own surgeries that he preformed. Djoredjevic is convinced that the number of individuals who undergo sex change operations, regret their decision, and opt to change back to their biological sex is on the rise.
His patients come from all over the world, experience depression, and sometimes have suicidal thoughts, says the surgeon.
“It can be a real disaster to hear these stories,” says the 52-year-old.
Djordjevic practices strict guidelines to hopefully prevent individuals from regretting their sex change operation. He requires that his potential patients go through a rigorous psychological evaluation that lasts nearly two years. They also must provide two professional recommendations that show why the patient is making a safe and proper decision.
“I have heard stories of people visiting surgeries who only checked if they had the money to pay. We have to stop this. As a community, we have to make very strong rules: nobody who wants to make this type of surgery or just make money can be allowed to do so.”
“I’m afraid what will happen five to 10 years later with this person. It is more than about surgery; it’s an issue of human rights. I could not accept [minors] as a patient because I’d be afraid what would happen to their brain and mind.”
Professor Caspian said the reasons the university pulled his funding are:
“The fundamental reason given was that it might cause criticism of the research on social media, and criticism of the research would be criticism of the university. They also added it’s better not to offend people. University exists to encourage discussion, research, dissent even, challenging ideas that are out of date or not particularly useful.”
“Engaging in a potentially politically incorrect piece of research carries a risk to the university. Attacks on social media may not be confined to the researcher, but may involve the university. The posting of unpleasant material on blogs or social media may be detrimental to the reputation of the university.”
If public opinion shapes how Bath Spa conducts research then any study by them should be written off even before it’s read. It can also be dangerous. Many of those who regret their decision become suicidal, so it is imperative that they take their time and make sure it’s what they really want. Hiding the facts from them could contribute to the suicide rate among those who transitioned.
