Stahl on trans issue (60 Minutes)A reporter's expose on transgender treatments and surgery has landed her in hot water with the Left.

A recent (May 23) segment of "60 Minutes" on CBS dealt extensively with people who have gender dysphoria and who were quickly approved for hormone treatment and then genital mutilation surgery. The segment was hosted by Leslie Stahl (pictured).

Among those Stahl interviewed was Grace Smith, who obtained counseling for transitioning to male. Smith briefly described her pre-surgery discussion with the surgeon:

Grace Smith: "She didn't really go into what my gender dysphoria might have been stemming from. We only did a few sessions. They asked me, 'So, why do you want to go on testosterone?' – and I said 'Well, being a woman just doesn't work for me anymore.' And they said 'Okay.'"

Hormones were provided and a double mastectomy performed four months later – a move she now regrets:

Grace Smith: "I started to have a really disturbing sense that like a part of my body was missing, almost a ghost limb feeling about being like, there's something that should be there. And the feeling really surprised me, but it was really hard to deny …. I can't believe that I transitioned and de-transitioned, including hormones and surgery, in the course of, like, less than one year. It's completely crazy."

Then 60 Minutes interviewed, among others, a man identified only as "Garrett" of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, who transitioned to female – hormones and all – and had the surgery a little later:

Garrett: "I had never really been suicidal before until I had my breast augmentation. And about a week afterwards I wanted to, like, actually kill myself – like, I had a plan and I was going to do it but I just kept thinking about … my family to stop myself. It kind of felt like how am I ever going to feel normal again, like other guys now?"

The 13-minute-long segment was considered to be fair – resulting in Stahl now being targeted by a hate campaign from homosexual and transgender activists.
