Actually getting implants isn't that hard. Stu Rasmussen ("famous" TG mayor of Silverton Or) did it without a lot of trouble. But implants are fairly reversible, as are the things mentioned.

Getting *hormones* is different. They make changes that are not easily reversed, and after a few months get into the "not reversible" area.

Getting SRS is even *less* reversible.

And both are generally easier than getting your tubes tied if you are female unless there a *serious* medical reason.

Doctors have this (understandable) fear of getting sued for huge sums of money if they do something that can't be reversed to you.

And remember that they've got to worry about how idiots on jury will see it, not how folks familiar with trans issues (or certain women's issues in the case of tubal ligation or hysterectomy) would see things.

No, they can have opinions. They just have to be prepared to take the consequences if said opinions are stupid or insulting.

It's like all the folks who seem to think having freedom of speech means that they have freedom from *consequences*. Doesn't work that way. You are free to say what you want. But you have to take the heat for it. And if it is sufficiently far offbase, you may get hit with slander or libel charges. Or "inciting to riot" or the like.
