We are all used to Annie passing. Unfortunately, sometimes.. she doesn't. And then this sort of thing happens.

Keep in mind, some people (like this woman) are trained to be able to see in to what people are and what they do. In this case, she is trained to see how young people's bodies are being treated - so she would know very well the physical signs of young women.
As much as we might hate her, she does make a lot of valid points. Or, so she thinks, until Lexi points them out.
It is an interesting thing to compare anorexia and transgenderism. Most would say it is unfair to make that comparison, but in both ways - you are taking a perfectly healthy body and damaging it to match what the mind says it should be. Yet, one is (more and more) accepted as positive, and the other is always vilified. Food for thought.

I wouldn't define it as damaging, but as renovation, at least concerning HRT. An endocrinologist in this country said that mortality is higher in transsexuals before starting HRT because of the risk of suicide, and if you do HRT properly, there is no higher risk of getting other diseases like cancer, liver damage etc. Surgeries are definitvely bodily harm, but it's about living on, and starving isn't.

Wow, someone really needs a punch in the face... No, that's wrong, I do not advocate physical violence. Someone really does need to get their ignorant ass fired, though. It's not even just about being transphobic; as idiotic as that is, it's her choice and shouldn't affect her ability to be employed so long as it also doesn't affect her judgement on the job.

Except it does. I have to wonder how she could possibly think that utterly destroying someone who isn't even here for the therapy in front of everyone present, especially Lexi, could possibly be helpful in any way.

She's basically saying "Girls, you should not be ashamed of your bodies. Except for HIM. HE should definitely be ashamed, so there are exceptions. Actually, let's waste half this group therapy session shaming HIM because surely that will help you all with your own issues."

@GreenKrog: No, no, no. There is NOTHING that can justify what this woman does here. It doesn't matter what kind of "valid points" you might think she is making; she is a trained psychologist/therapist in a group therapy session who has chosen to VILIFY someone who is there voluntarily as support for one of her patients. She is utterly transphobic. She should be fired and called in front of an inquiry board.

@sunspark: I didn't say she was justified?
