Book Description

In GENDER, LIES AND SUICIDE, Walt Heyer analyzes the issues which fuel the tragedy of transgender suicide and shares selected stories from the many people who write him seeking to undo the tragic consequences from their decision to change genders.

Transgenders undergo hormone injections and irreversible surgeries in a desperate effort to feel better. The media and transgender activists claim the radical treatment is successful and regret is rare, yet at the same time, they report that transgenders, even after treatment, are attempting and committing suicide at an alarming rate.

Back in 1979, Dr. Charles Ihlenfeld, a close colleague of Dr. Harry Benjamin, the father of the transgender movement in the U.S., reported that 80% of those seeking a sex change should not have one; frequently too many of them committed suicide.

GENDER, LIES AND SUICIDE reveals how today, many decades later, the suicides continue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book, Very Brave Topic January 2, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a GREAT book to get a real understanding of a very touchy subject. Heyer lived the life and, having decided to become emasculated, he came to deeply regret it. I'm laughing at all the negative reviews which look like they were all written by the same person, or a cabal in cahoots. Further, I'm guessing they did not even read it. How many authors and books have been ripped to shreds in Amazon by people who hated the topic of the book? I guess if you are a liberal, lying is what other people do when misrepresenting a fact. Buy this inexpensive Kindle book and prepare to have your eyes opened. Thank you, Walt!

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written personal rant August 31, 2013
There is not doubt that author Walt Heyer is angry and dissatisfied with his choice to undergo sex reassignment surgery 30 years ago. He feels he was not properly counseled and was actually suffering childhood trauma that altered his view of his gender, and then subsequent adulthood depression. Do I think this is possible? Yes. I do think a person can be damaged from childhood trauma and have a skewed view of gender
It is estimated that there are between 32K and 40K male-to-female transwomen in the US currently. Heyer presents his story as a warning and somewhat typical. When I read his book, I immediately likened it to a person who has had a traumatic childhood, entered a life of abuses, and twisted his narrative of abuse, and often destructive behavior with sexual orientation "blaming" a homosexual orientation with childhood dysfunction. In fact, Heyer does PRECISELY that several times in the book:

"There is no proof that trangenders are born.How a child acts out their gender roles will vary depending on the parent or parents, siblings and anyone else who has an active role spending time with the child from a very young age."

"Parents perhaps contribute to child hood gender nonconformity and narcissistic development. The development of the child's self identification can be influenced by excessive focus on the child's look's, behaviors and gender change suggestions. "

"Have no doubts. Transgender are not formed in the womb but evolve slowly from unresolved childhood family issues, unresolved psychological disorder and other overlooked disorders the activist therapist refuse to acknowledge exist.

1.0 out of 5 stars What in the world happened? February 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I gave the three previous books four and five stars, as Walt shared his story in what felt fairly honest and just slightly tinged with religious rhetoric, guilt, and fantasy. BUT THEN I read this "manuscript" that our self quoting narcissist is pawning off on us. It seems this is about making some more cash as best as I can tell. Previously Walt had taken what was rightfully a share of the blame, now he is a whining shell of what he presented as previously in the first book. Suddenly his childhood is way more traumatic than his original story, and he quotes doctors unwilling to leave names. Repeating his own blog posts and quoting himself frequently at the beginning of each chapter, does not make a book of substance or use. What I found helpful and credible in his previous three books now are called into question. I even wonder if Walt wrote this, as it stinks of Christian bullying claiming transsexuals are living a fantasy. As let's be honest here, it is such fun for transgender people to put up with the damning of ones plight by a bunch of cross bearing thugs. Who seem to think saying "we love and forgive all" includes the fine print of "as long as you agree with OUR fantasy." I read this book through to the end and am glad I did, as I owed myself that much. If Walt did write this, I fear he may be as delusional as he was when he was suffering from dissociative identity disorder. I still feel for Walt, as I certainly did in book one due to the tragedy of misdiagnosis. Then he at least admitted that he aided in the error. Unfortunately his regret has seemed to have morphed him yet again. I hope he gets some therapy outside of what is seeming like a cult community that is as bad as some transgender communities can seem to him. At least before writing his next book to steal from readers so he can land a payday. My grade of this book is a "D" for disgusting!
