    I do not see in why a trans woman should be given the right to conceive, as it goes against nature
    Ask nature her opinion

    Not sure how I feel about this. Part of me thinks it's great that these women are given the opportunity to carry a child if they want to, but another part of me feels like they're getting to cut corners. They don't have to live with periods & regular aches and pains for 35+ years of their life. They get the reward without going through any of the pain.

    So does this also mean that women who aren't able to have kids can have the surgery? If not then it shouldn't be available to anyone.
    wtf this is so petty, someone shouldn't be able to have kids because someone in a totally unrelated situation can't either or has to go through more to be able to? That is seriously pathetic.

    The ignorance is strong in you.

    I suppose you never bother to read past one single source and take everything you read as gospel then?


    Honestly...some people.
    Reading past one source suggests that successful pregnancies from uterine transplants between cis-women are only very recent, and that the applicability to transgender women is mainly speculation from the press rather than medical professionals. And get this; one of the first attempts at this procedure was on Lili Elbe.

    Successful (as in not rejected) uterus transplants span back past 10 years ago, though only recently have stories of successful pregnancies come through. Yes.

    Yeah...she also died due to it.

    There are other ways to have kids other than to have a uterus transplant..and I didn't say they shouldn't be able to have kids.
    The whole idea of a uterus transplant should be an option for every woman with fertility issues, not just trans women and those without a uterus. It's about equality.
    How can it be that a trans woman can be pregnant with a child and a biological woman can't? I don't agree with that at all.
    Well you'll be glad to know that isn't the case. It seems to be something you've just speculated for yourself for some strange reason.

    Please enlighten me to how I'm being ignorant. My issue is people resorting to using it for men and the fact that people are dismissing it's use on females. I'm not saying the actual treatment is at fault, I'm saying that people's main thought is using it on men. Not the surgeons.
    Look at this thread title, it's mentioning using it on men, and not women so the fact that people are showin importance in the use on men rather than promoting its use on women is what gets me.

    The use on men is ridiculous in the first place. Only a matter of time until there are people going to want to become carrots.

    People are taking it too far

    According to the article, the uterus transplant is offered to trans women and those without a uterus or who have uterine damage. A biological women can have fertility issues that doesn't involve any of that, therefore, they wouldn't be eligible..
    Because their uterus is not the problem, a uterus transplant wouldn't be a great help to a lot of people with infertility issues.

    If the fertility issues preventing her from carrying a child have nothing to do with their uterus then obviously they don't need a uterine transplant they need different treatment.

    This treatment has been around for over a decade and no one is saying it's more important to give it to trans women or placing more importance on it's use on trans women. It's very clearly just an article pointing out the possibility of it being used for trans women.

    You seem to just be looking for something to get angry at because you can't stand the thought of transgenders god forbid being able to have children.

    Gender dysphoria doesn't exist in my opinion. I know it's a recognised disorder and all but it is not recognised by everyone as a disorder.
    God doesn't exist.
    If the religious books are meant to be proof that he exists then Spiderman exists.

    I disagree with people tricking others and being dishonest, but I don't think this a purely trans issue. People trick people they're in a relationship in a lot of ways. This is just one more possibility.
    You're quite right, it's definitely not a trans specific issue. But many seem to think that them being a certain sex isn't an issue to bring up, except when discussing kids. Now this is an excuse to just further hide the truth in their case.

    If they are honest about their past, like everyone should be, then while it still makes me uncomfortable, this point can't be raised. But I doubt that will be the case.

    Its my opinion that it's unfair that they aren't experiencing any of the pre pregnancy/ post labour aspects relating to the uterus, they are only given the prize at the end.

    Transwomen may not have periods and cramps and so on, but they go through a hell of a lot of pain ciswomen don't go through, and never will go through, so why don't we stop trying to compare who has it worse and simply respect and help each other as much as possible, surely that is the best way to go about creating a better, more equal and fair society?

    I understand that u stuck up spud. The title of the thread was showing focusing on the treatment being used on women. The title of the report was also saying that.
    Fixed that for you

    I didn't choose to be female, I didn't choose to have a period. I'm one for doing whatever makes you happy, but a lot of the things that make us happy come with sacrifices and pain.
    Transwomen chose to make the transition, their 'pain' is voluntary.
