Jacobs, LCSW-R, a psychotherapist, address a range of fallacies: Trans People Are “Trapped in the Wrong Body” You’re Not Really Trans If You Haven’t Had “the Surgery” Trans People Are a Danger to Others, Especially Children Trans People Are Mentally Ill and Therapy Can Change Them Trans People and Feminists Don’t Get Along
