Alt-right here with my take on things. We aren't monolithic, so not everyone alt-right agrees with all, or even necessarily any, of this.
Real disorder. Fake treatment. ( -- When I started writing, I had intended those four words to be the entire post.) Notice that other dismorphic disorders, like anorexia, aren't "treated" by indulging the fantasies of the sufferer. Doctors don't prescribe lap bands for people who think they are fat when they aren't. But gender dismorphia is a political weapon now, much to the detriment of the people who suffer from it, and so anyone who doesn't think we should castrate men who think they are women is an awful bigot.
If we were honest about this topic, we would notice that suicide rates increase dramatically a few years after surgery - ending up even higher than pre-surgery levels. It appears that for many people denied psychiatric treatment, surgery was a false hope. When it sinks in that surgery did not fix anything, and there are no other options left, despair sets in.
Perversely, at this stage, re-stigmatizing the condition is the most compassionate thing that can be done. Stigmatize isn't the right word exactly, but sadly, we are unlikely to gradually return to reality, so the pendulum is going to swing back too far. If we do it soon, the "swing back too far" won't be too bad - we can clear the pipeline of those merely confused, those seeking attention and those that are the suffering as a result of someone else's Munchausen-by-proxy. Let it go too far left though, and the pushback is likely to be violent, which will hurt those in genuine need of compassion the most, but will also damage the civic character immensely.
At any rate, Chelsea Manning appears to be a traitor in his heart. Snowden appears to have acted towards what he believed was best for the American people. He was flawed, and he made mistakes, but was basically going in the right direction for the right reasons, and he took some care to avoid unnecessary damage. Chealsea, on the other hand, appears to have acted out of malice, with a goal of causing as much damage on the way out as he could. He may have done some good incidentally, but blowing the whistle doesn't seem to have been on his radar until he realized that it could earn him some sympathy. At least that was my impression at the time, when I was flipping randomly through the documents.
P.S. Sorry, this isn't up to my usual proofreading standards. Been a long day and I'm yawning as I try to read it. I hope it is less sleep-inducing for you readers than it was for me to write.
