    Suicide rates DO decrease once they transition and if they are accepted into society, but how low? To 30%! That's higher than practically any population on earth! It's obviously a mental illness, even if their brains do align more with their perceived gender, there is clearly something causing this incredibly high suicide rate that does not have to do with how accepted you are in society.

    I really don't think it could be genetics for all we know it could be something mankind was exposed to in the last couple hundred years I really don't think that Gene could survive through that many years of religion and segregation of people that are different come on it hasn't even been 60 years from the whole black and white thing I'm just saying if this is such a common thing in people wouldn't it have been documented and known for centuries now but you never know but the truth is we're human beings and we're probably capable of anything.

    Does anyone else find it ironic on how their previous video was on lying and then they came out with this video?

  • Chao Lee
    Chao Lee 2 days ago +2

    All this video does is prove that Gender Dysphoria is a thing, something that is ignorant to deny. The controversial part of “Transgenderism” is “transitioning” and the forced use of “preferred pronouns”. I, like many others, don’t agree with transitioning and referring to someone by something they aren’t (e.g calling a man a woman and vice versus). You are as you were born; nothing can change that.

    *btw this video doesn’t provide any evidence that there are “more than 2 genders” as some have stated in the comments. There are only 2 genders, sorry.*

    This is total bullshit, there are trans that regret transitioning and have transitioned back, so are their brains totally screwed up. And what about those that are simply followers of this ideology. Different groups have those that push their ideology and then the followers, the majority, that go along until they grow up and abandon the ideology. This true for every new generation and will continue........................All this bullshit is in the heads of those that follow. But it's only the LGBT community that try to claim it's down to biology, not choice. We didn't hear that claim from skinheads, or mods and rockers or teddy boys and any other group, that they had some biological defect...............

    I'm all for you do whatever you want, but there is no denying this is a mental illness. But it isn't just because someone is mentally ill that they should be treated as inferiors. Everyone should be treated with respect. Transgenderism shouldn't be encouraged but it should be tolerated because everything is ok as long as it doesn't harm or affect others.

      My genitalia? Your genitals is what tells you if your male/female. I was born as a female. I'm living as a female. And I'm a tomboy, I'm not the stereotypical teenage girl that gossips, and wear make-up. I hate make-up. The point is if you were born a man then you're a MAN. If you're born a woman then you're a WOMAN. Transgenders have a mental illnesses, and doctors shouldn't be telling them to live with their disability.

    • Unity Flare
      Unity Flare 2 days ago

      It's also not like that genetic mutations are bad either, sometimes they just happen for seemingly no reason at all! some serve a purpose and some don't really do much at all. Nothing you can do about it and there is no need for a cure for it. The only thing in life that matters is if you are happy.

    • Echo
      Echo 4 days ago +1

      @Unity Flare this!

    • Echo
      Echo 4 days ago

      You're right, it's a gene mutation that causes people to be born with the wrong chromosomes. Nothing really fixes that problem though, so transitioning helps the most for now.

    • Unity Flare
      Unity Flare 4 days ago

      That's like saying you wanna cure African Americans because of their dark skin and saying their dark skin color is a disease.
      Having dark skin is genetic, so is being trans, you don't need to cure it. You just need to accept it.

    • Just Random
      Just Random 2 days ago +1

      ms wpwm Oh yes I understand. I wish “feminist” from my country of America would fight for women’s rights for those people who need it. Instead they all get mad at men for spreading their legs slightly apart on a train! People in my country say gender is a social construct so they can be “non-binary” which means they don’t associate with any gender. Most feminist women also want to feel like a victim in my country so they make up all lot of stuff.

    • ms wpwm
      ms wpwm 2 days ago +2

      part of the reason why people say gender is a social construct is because women are expected to behave a certain way and man are expected to behave a certain way too... like in the country I live in, in Southeast Asia (Terengganu, Malaysia), Muslim men can marry up to 4 wives but muslim women can't. It is the norm, this rule isn't questioned by Muslims where I live. A muslim woman who takes her religion seriously is expected to cover herself up. This is an example of another norm, a rule that's not questioned... Gender as a social construct is affected by culture, country, tradition, race and religion...
      This is like the sociological part of it...
      The psychological/ biological part of it has to do with sexual orientation/ how a person identifies. This part explains who the person is attracted to... basically all the things being explained in this video...
      Hope you understand :D

    Transgenders make up a small percentage of the HUMAN population which means they are a deviation. We should accept that they exist but we should not teach that they are normal/right. Just like how we do not say people with 6 fingers are normal but they still exist

    • Unity Flare
      Unity Flare 2 days ago

      Some people have different standards and definitions for what is normal. Just because something isn't the majority of the world doesn't make it abnormal. Transgender men and women should be taken as being normal because it's just like having blue eyes, blonde hair, brown hair, brown eye's etc..
      They where born with it. It isn't an illness or a birth defect or anything like that. It's a genetic mutation just like the blue eye genetic mutation. Some genetic mutations really don't serve a purpose they just happen.

      I wasn't looking for pity, I was just outlining that sexuality or gender identity aren't choices because no one would give up a safe life. Also this isn't a job, this is multiple jobs that didn't hire me despite explicitly asking for experienced people, yet I see their new employees and they're inexperienced trainees. These employers like me when they meet me, like me during the interview but don't like me when they learn I'm trans via my old manager who is a reference.
      Trans umployment rates are higher than cis unemployment rates and it's not due to the trans people themselves, it's from bigoted employers. I know people fired from jobs when they come out, and even my last job wouldn't let me transition because I had to "be normal".
      Funnily enough I did get another job, one I'm inexperienced at and coincidentally it is a job that doesn't know I'm trans at all. Go figure.

      That doesn't even make sense. We call transgenderism as being a mental illness because they're delusional about their gender.

We're not living in a deluded reality flipping our entire lives upside down for it but transgenders are.

      if he does, he's not all-loving.
      You can't have it both ways.
      Also, Christians are meant to follow God and Jesus and love their neighbor as themselves. I highly doubt saying "let god burn them quickly" is loving people like Jesus told you to.
      If you're Christian, act like one. Follow Jesus not only when it suits your personal beliefs, biases, bigotry, etc, but all the time. Jesus won't look kindly on people who are selective in who they show God's love to.

    Transgender agenda is pushed by Jews to sterilize Europeans across the Western World and plummet our birthrates. Same reason why they push homosexuality, miscegenation and open borders. Its genocide. Kalergi Plan. United Nations policy, Replacement Migration. Endless streams of illegals who have between 2 to 4 times the amount of kids as Europeans. Forcing Europeans into a rapid minority all over the Western World, then either mixing fully or just dying out. At current rates, minority before 2050 and then plummeting after that. We need to secure our borders, expel the illegals and guard the southern border in America and Europe. I feel bad for all these Trans people, they're being sterilized when there's medication that stops mental symptoms of gender dysphoria, that can give them a normal life back in as fast as a week. They're being used, manipulated, lied to and used for profit, while these sick people get wealthy from Sterilizing Europeans across the Western World, who they hate and admit they're seeking genocide in regard to these peoples race. They're sterilizing toddlers now and claiming kids at 5 years old, who can't pick their own dinner or bedtime, can decide their gender.....Wake up people..... This is essentially Eugenics, the people hate you and your people. Rapidly approaching, the biggest genocide in human history. We must all unite, expose these crimes against humanity, end illegal mass immigration they push to take our countries away from us and kill us off. Jews enslaved Africans and owned all of the slave ships and auctions NOT White Americans/Europeans. Jews ran the entire Transatlantic slave trade. They created the KKK in 1865, as an offshoot of their occult Secret societies, after White Republicans abolished slavery. They also fund Black Panther, Black Lives Matter and Antifa to create racial division and civil unrest. They openly laugh, brag and state, if they're successful in the genocide of Europeans across the World, that they'll rule over the dark races forever unopposed and be worshipped as Gods on Earth. Conveying how the dark races will be their slaves and will never be anle to unite and oppose them, because they aren't even intelligent enough to figure out what's going on! These people are twisted and sick. They're directly responsible for the genocide, of every other race on this Earth, between Millions and Tens of Millions. All of which these Jews, deprived of water, starved, worked around the clock, tortured, left them exposed to the elements in freezing temperatures and outright just killed them. It's time to wake the hell up people....

      Pimozide for one, but, there's more than just one. Also, a lot of it has been discovered to be a hormone imbalance as well. Taking testosterone if you were born male, with or without the medication, many had very successful results. Those born female, can take estrogen if theres an imbalance. Most males who transition, usually have a softer look to them to begin with, same with the females having more masculine features in a great deal of this. Regardless of political affiliation, I'm entirely conservative through and through. I NEVER want to see my people or ANYONE be used for money to extend treatment that could end immediately with medication, seeing all of these Europeans in America and the Western World and especially children, being subjected to sterilization as a TODDLER! All of these things truly bother me and i just want to show people, theres other options that AREN'T permanent. I want you all having families, beautiful children of your own.... This bothers far more people and mostly conservatives, than any of you realize. This deeply bothers, angers and upsets us. I just hope for the people who already took permanent actions, that maybe i can do something by telling everyone this, so other people, especially the teens and younger don't do this to themselves.... Many teens are even starting to lie and push to get the surgery, because someone else got it done and they want to fit in and be liked. It's extremely sad to read things like this... Please, stop doing this...Your creator and your American Brothers & Sisters love all of you. We're tired of seeing this happen and being upset and mad csuse you've been lied to and taken advantage of, by these apathetic liars. Our creator didn't make us to do these horrible things to each other and ourselves. You were meant to have a Husband/Wife, Have children of your own and a beautiful loving family of your own.

    YES! Coming from a ftm trans guy, transgenderism *is* a mental illness, this doesn’t mean that we should be put in insane asylums, it means that we need medical treatment, and as far as we know, the best way to treat transgenderism is through physically and socially transitioning.

    • Echo
      Echo 6 days ago +2

      Fair, I didn't specify. There is no complete cure*, the best modern medical science and technology can offer is transitioning. Happy?
      I believe there's only two genders. NB people definitely exist, but being Non-Binary by definition means you don't identify with either gender, and that's not a gender.
      I believe there's many identities one can have, but only two genders.

    • jessica jones
      jessica jones 6 days ago

      +Echo lol you literally just said in your previous comment it is a cure and now you're saying there is no cure? This is why so many people still struggle to find this logical. Transgenders and their supporters like to claim there's more than 2 genders but when you ask them how many, they say they don't know. If the concept of gender is going to be changed for an entire society, it needs to have a concrete foundation and definition. So far though all I'm hearing is a lot of confusion from the transgender community and their supporters.

    • Echo
      Echo 6 days ago +1

      There is also no cure right now, the only way is to treat the symptoms of dysphoria by making the body attempt to match the mind.
      You can't just tinker with the mind and expect it to work. Depression is far less complex than dysphoria and even then antidepressants only work some of the time, and often have no effect in some people!

    • jessica jones

      +Echo the suicide rate among transgenders doesn't change after they "transition". So no, it isn't a cure. Even Gigi here in this video has demonstrated the twisted mentality that goes on with transgenders. He recently uploaded a video crying because he can't get pregnant. Knowing that he was born a male with the reproductive system of a male, does it really seem logical to you that anyone under those circumstances should feel sorry for themselves? This is just one example of many that even after "transitioning" these people are never fully satisfied. It's because they're living in a delusion that simply does not make sense. Like I said, transitioning merely masks the problem like a bandaid but it's not an actual cure that reaches the root of the problem.

    As a biologist, I can accredit most of the information presented here. That said, I don't believe there is anywhere near enough evidence to substantiate the proclamation that CYP17 definitively links transgenderism to a genetic expression. At best it is a tenuous correlation, which you are cherry picking information to fit; for example, you make no assertion regarding the role of CYP17 as a catalyst, its role in the synthesis of glucocorticoids nor its place in the aetiology of several autosomal recessive diseases.
