  • Levi Han

    Sometimes I think people get gender expression and actually gender confused. I was born a female, I am okay with that. I am not feminine at all. I hate particularly feminine things like dresses, makeup, etc. I’d rather play video games and wear sweatpants (usually ‘male’ things). Does that make me a boy because I hate dresses and flowers? No, I am still biologically a girl. You can express your gender however you feel comfortable, but the way you express your gender does not mean you are another gender.
    If you choose to be transgender, that’s up to you. Of course you deserve basic human rights and respect, but not everyone has to change their lives to cater to your feelings or your own choices. I don’t mean to be rude I’m just trying to say it as it is.

    This is PSEUDOSCIENCE. "Transgender" is a MENTAL DISORDER known in Psychiatry as 'Gender Dysphoria' - an aspect of morbid self-indulgence. There are only TWO genders, these are MALE and FEMALE, they are BIOLOGICALLY DETERMINED in your DNA and IMMUTABLE, regardless of sexuality, subjective "feelings" or gender pronouns.

    As soon as someone says, "gender they were assigned at birth", I know it is agenda driven.

    • Nunya Dibness
      Nunya Dibness 5 days ago +4

      I didn't say that, I just pointed out the agenda markers. No one is assigned a gender. It is observed based on biology. Some don't fit that categorization, but for the vast majority it does. Presuming that that is somehow a violation just doesn't fit the vast majority for which it does. It is trying to inject a problem into the majority instead of just saying it doesn't fit the few exceptions for which it doesn't. It is pretty simple to understand unless you have an agenda to push.

    Even _if_ it was just a mental disorder, it doesn't justify taking their rights away. Depressed, bipolar act out on their illness all the time and often don't get therapy to treat it. You don't see morons trying to strip these people of human rights for being mentally ill, but they won't accept trans people for who they are. The truth is that bigots are just selective with people to discriminate against and who they think "deserve" to live. The thing is that illnesses like depression could go away if treated successfully, while a trans person with dysphoria will always have that dysphoria. Plus you aren't even born with depression, narcissistic personality disorder, bipolar disorder or shit like that. However, you are born with gender dysphoria.

  • Holly Williams

    I have a question about the scientific studies that examined the brains of transgender people compared to the brains of cisgender people. From what I understand, a trans woman has a brain structure similar to a cisgender woman's brain and likewise for trans men. My question is about the studies that found these similarities. Had the transgender subjects in the scientific studies undergone, or were undergoing, hormonal therapy? If so, how can we be sure that the hormonal therapy didn't cause the brain similarities?

    Okay... honest question I’m no sjw, I’m just looking for answers/opinions; I know someone who has very real diagnosed gender Dysphoria, was born female but does not feel comfortable as a female. However this person does not want to transition to the male gender. This person also has growth hormone deficiency and did not go through puberty correctly, could these be related? Thoughts on gender Dysphoria for people who do not want to be the other gender?

    Well there isn't any functional difference between men and women. Plus it seems like it's really all in your head. I mean gender is a social construct so there can't truly, and objectively be such a thing as transgender or gender in general. In fact you could likely change it by changing the brain, just because someone might have a gene for something doesn't mean it will be expressed therefor kind of throwing a wrench in the whole thing.
    If gender wasn't a concept then I wonder if people would say it exists. Likely not. These studies don't validate anything since gender itself is a human invention. Plus if we are talking about science validating things it also says race is not valid from a scientific point but we still act like it does. It also says that love doesn't exist either but we still pretend it does.

      neverlandsong1 you likely believe that because being transgender has been dismissed as deviancy in western culture. in other cultures, like what RyuukoGo mentions, it is accepted. trans people used to just move away from home and present as their gender in a new town where no one knew them, but that’s not possible with tech these days. it’s more well-known because policy has to be made to include trans ppl in definitions and policy for legal purposes, transitioning medically, etc. it’s well documented all over the world in different time periods if you just look it up!

      It's not a try when you based your information on "facts",you'll wanna do a lot more digging than one article or video because you could just be basing your information on someone's opinion if you don't look hard enough,you aren't going to have much to use in a debate if you limit your information to only a few sources and you will need reliable sources to gather the factual information,I have witnessed how the transgender dysphoria mental illness works through a family member,she will have to deal with self inflicted pain and thoughts of suicide until she recieve the proper medications as she is currently going through the process of transitioning and it's not helping her at all and she is very confused and you can tell she feels either genders depending on her day she won't just stick with one and therfore after/if she transitions she'll think the same self harmful and suicidal thoughts she did when she was a girl,not basing my judgment soley from that I'm just explaining the facts meet with it spot on,I mean all this with total respect and I'm not mocking you at all,I would just prefer more properly educated people rather than people who mix facts with opinions.

      People with transgender dysphoria who do and don't get the operation both have the same 41% suicide rate so find me legitimate statistics saying there is a difference otherwise you have based your "knowledge" out of an opinion rather than fact,not all medications work the same for all schizophrenic people so not all the same medications will work for people with transgender dysphoria,we wouldn't just pass off schizophrenic hallucinations as "seeing ghosts" or "hearing god",so thoughts of self harm coming from not feeling like the gender you're born into will not stop unless you can find a way to come to terms with it other than suicide or transitioning because not feeling like the gender you are will be the next step from not feeling like the gender you're born into leading to the same 41% suicide rate,therefore you need meditation to help you think realistically and know it won't be the end of the world due to what's in your pants

    Fairly decent video and pleasantly surprised at the nonbiased approach. The only two problems I had with the video was when they were talking about the brain and the suicide rate. We don’t know nearly enough about the brain to be able to say what is exactly linking the shape of the brain and it’s connection to gender dysphoria. The suicide rate isn’t just high, it’s 10x national average; 40%. No other group in history has ever come close to that high of a suicide rate; not the African Americans before 1960 that were treated as lesser human beings, nor homosexuals during the 1970-1980 HIV scare when society thought the frightening disease was attributed to them. While there are horrible people out there, 40% is far too high to attribute to social intolerance; more likely linking with severe depression caused by uncontrollable chemical imbalance of neurotransmitters (ex: dopamine). There are no studies to show that tolerance and surgery will lower depression and the suicide rate to a “normal” rate. As someone who has been medically treated for severe depression, I feel nothing but sympathy and wish kindness for these people going through such a tough life. Although I sympathize, I cannot accept that tolerance is the only hope. If we accept that tolerance is the only option, we less likely to find any other option. If in the future I have a kid with gender dysphoria, I don’t want to be basically flipping a coin to see whether or not he will commit suicide.

      Actually there are studies that show that people's happiness increases when they're accepted by people, that they're happiness increases when they're able to physically and socially transition, and that suicide attempt rates are much higher with people who have families that don't support them.
      If you have a future child who is trans, be supportive. It's not just a coin flip, it's about being there for them.

    This explains the science in an unbiased and educated manner, but it in no way validates transgenderism. We should now be looking into what in our modern society is damaging an individual's brain to contort on itself and act as the opposite gender. Is it chemicals from manufactured products? Chemicals on food? Untested medication?
    And what can we do to research a cure to this mental illness while still respecting the individual's rights. Imagine if we could cure gender dysphoria. So many lives would be saved considering transgenders have a high suicide rate.
