Biggest ever survey of trans Americans finds 94% happier after transition

Recommended Posts

The 2022 US Trans Survey of 92,000 transgender adults, finds continued discrimination, harassment and even violence at work.

The report found that 94% of transgender individuals who live at least part of the time in a gender different than the one they were assigned at birth – in other words, who “transitioned” – were either “a lot” (79%) or “a little more satisfied” (15%) with their lives. Nearly 98% of respondents were receiving some kind of hormone replacement therapy, which made them “a lot” (84%) or “a little” (14%) more satisfied with their lives.

When the absolutely final version of the survey comes out it will be a data milestone with the response level they had.  Hopefully some politicians will see they are up against a bigger phenomena than expected and show a bit more hesitance before attacking us.

👍👍

The article is a bit wiggly and wobbly as it tries to over-qualify the questioning and results here, but it does give the numbers.  I took the survey and while it was structured to eliminate some question sets based on a variety early responses that indicated the relativity of the question to the person (MTF's did not have to answer all the questions relative only to FTM's or persons with an age under 50 not given the choices to answer questions about Senior Citizens, or me (74) answering questions about 25 year olds) the answers I was asked to give were highly relevant and on point to my life.

Me too & I believe many of us here on TGP did as well (at least those of us who were around in 2022). Will be fascinating to see what impact the final results have.

The CEO of the NCTE Rodrigo Heng-Lehtinen, is doing many media interviews today, and hopefully some will be aimed at a larger audience than the Guardian.  As good as that publication is, it doesn't get read by many outside of the left wing "bubble."  Of course, we can count on the right wing media not mentioning it at all, unless they think they can manipulate some factoid to their advantage.

 

The complete report will be available within a couple of months.  It is still being analyzed and undergoing qualitative analysis.  My personal Thank You goes out to everyone who participated in this critically important survey.  It really does matter.

Good for you, Carolyn Marie!

Yes, I took the test, too. I found it to be professional and comprehensive and I agree with what others above have said. This is probably more of a long-term solution, but a much-needed one. Science, and social science, can be the basis for good government. Glad to be on here today, a tough day otherwise for me. Thanks.

I think maybe I took the survey, but I can't recall now.  There have been a couple of surveys posted here since I joined TGP in 2022.  I know I took at least one, but another one or two I also recall wanted more personal information than I was willing to give.  Can't remember if this was one went one way or the other.  But anyways, interesting results.  92,000 so far is a pretty big sample size!

      I’m glad to hear you mean no harm and have no beef with genderfluid folks. Thank you for clarifying that. This still seems a strange presumption to me though, when so much of anti-trans propaganda is clearly either (a) concocted in bad faith to justify an argument, or (b) based on ignorant assumptions. Yes it’s possible a few outliers in the trans community are making ridiculous claims about this topic, but even if so I seriously doubt they are the cause of the relevant anti-trans propaganda.    That may well be a fair call, and you’re right that “transphobe” is an over-generalisation. I used it as a shorthand and because, as Sally and MaeBe said, there is always a transphobic minority that spreads the anti-trans views which then unfortunately influence some who are less transphobic. But I still think we can fairly characterise such beliefs as being transphobic, at least partly. As to the absence of hatred in those church documents, you may be right about that, but I would be wary of taking people or institutions at face value when they urge love and compassion. Even the most virulent transphobes sometimes claim to support trans people. Actions speak louder than words.    I do better understand your anguish over lack of belief in trans identities now though. It must be very difficult being trans and involved with certain churches. I know there are some churches that accept and affirm trans folks though; maybe it’s time for a change in denomination?

      I looked through the Focus on the Family material and also the Southern Baptist Convention stuff, both highly influential, both rejecting transgenderism.  I found no hatred but an urge to treat people with love and compassion. I found some logical fallacies in both and nothing convinced me to change my position.  SBC assumes someone who is transgender is not saved and so is not allowed to join their congregations.    I have a certain affection for both.  FotF helped us with some material that helped us raise our kids and on most issues they are fellow travelers.  SBC seeks to conscientiously fight the good fight but I would never join a SBC church for reasons that are irrelevant here.  Not that I could now in good conscience.  I look like a guy? SURPRISE!  Left boot of fellowship.   The Nashville Statement is worse.  CBMW.org wrote it and it has been criticized heavily by some trans folk. . https://cbmw.org/nashville-statement#articles  I am saddened at some of who signed the thing. Articles 10 and 13 are of particular interest.  Other things can be found here that trans folk would take exception to. But they do not treat TG as something flippant.    I would not refer to any of these as transphobes.  I am not sure the term is useful in conceptualizing or interacting with those who object to the idea of transgender being something besides sin.  When all you have is a hammer, everything is a nail.

      Nice to see you, dear and congratulations on your upcoming anniversary. Very well done!

      It's estimated between 1-2% of the general population is transgender. This is based on a cursory web search of studies and stats. So apply that to all teachers and students in Florida. According to ballotpedia, in 2022 there was a total of about 3 million public school teachers and students combined. That does not include  higher ed institutions and private institutions. So let's tack on another million people which is a pretty conservative estimate. 1-2% of 4 million is 40,000-80,000 people.
    • Vidanjali
      Both. In the course of experience an individual will naturally go through periods of inquiry and seek to define their experiences for deeper personal insight. This potentially goes on and on, though some have greater curiosity than others.

      Heck I would get rid of the left and right lower rib. I would love a narrower waist but I would still need to get rid of my gut. I guess I'll do liposuction and tummy tuck and while they are at they can remove those ribs. 
    • MaeBe
      What @Sally Stone wrote is what I think as well.   The flippancy they ascribe to trans people is to validate their position that trans people are given to whim and swayed by the "trans ideology" that is "poisoning" humanity. Projecting this narrative on trans people "wins them points" in the game of their own making and being loud about it gets others to listen. They get those, who likely don't have a personal stake in transgender rights, to nod their heads up and down to increase the volume of their rhetoric. The passive transphobe does this because they have never needed to comprehend gender as anything as what they've always assumed; the "easy" answer the loud ones project just seems "logical" when there is no comprehension or compassion.   Once a person looks past their own ignorance they can come to understand this isn't about what they fear (insert crass statement about what transphobes are actually afraid of). It's just too easy to be ignorant and state "all I've ever known are two genders, boys and girls, who have sex together to make babies" (conflating gender and sex, as usual...) instead of taking just a little bit of time to understand the world is more complex than a simple bible verse.   For those people, I have a rib or two they can have for making more women--that's just how they're made--I really want a narrower waist for dress season.

      St. Louis is a Cardinals town.  At least you have the right team!

      The mindset seems to be: they are not crazy, we are.   Surveys indicate the majority of people are in favor of trans rights.  There is a minority that is influenced by the inner minority, the hard core "transphobes".  I think a lot of people simply need information.  But then they get two streams of information from opposite directions.

      Good afternoon everyone,   We're heading back to the St. Louis, MO metro area for my sister-in-laws retirement party. It appears that everyone on that side of the family now knows about my coming out & transition. So they will be looking at my androgynous manner of dress, in a totally different way. I'm wearing workout leggings, and a St. Louis Cardinals jersey. My leggings doesn't have pockets, so I'm carrying a cross body sling bag. My hair is held back with a white Cardinals visor, and my tennis shoes have Cardinal red lases.      Let the side eyes begin,   Mindy🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      Abigail, I think this line of thinking comes mostly from the cis community, specifically, those with an anti-trans agenda.  These are the self-proclaimed experts ( who have no idea what it's like to be trans) trying to tell us they have a better understanding of being trans than we do.
