wtf is wrong with you


No need to be so harsh about it. They probably just didn't know that transvestite is kind of offensive in some circles. The original post didn't distinguish between transgender or crossdresser, so I'd imagine that's what they were asking.

Transvestite's an offensive term? I'm sorry, I didn't know that.

Don't worry about it! It can be to some circles of the crossdressing community, but I don't know as much about that as I do the transgender community. Most rational people aren't gonna get super pissed just because you didn't know something

The process of sex differentiation is one with many branching points, critical periods of time when sex hormones' relative abundance is of great importance for determining the direction that structures will develop. In addition, various factors are needed to support these hormones' presence/absence and activity. Here's a rough outline of the process at the gonads and genitals:

SRY Gene on Y Chromosome ------> Testis Differentiating Factor (TDF) produced
Undifferentiated Gonads ----Testis Differentiating Factor (TDF)-----> Testes
Testes -----Release Testosterone-----> Acts to differentiate genitals into penis and scrotum
Testes -----Release Anti-Mullerian Hormone ------> Structures to form fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix, and inner vaginal canal don't develop
5-α-Reductase -----Converts Testosterone-----> Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) -------> Also acts to differentiate genitals in male direction
No TDF -----> None of the above happens, female differentiation of gonads and genitals, Mullerian duct forms female reproductive system

Meanwhile, in the brain there is yet more sex differentiation happening. Here's an outline of that, keeping in mind that I'll be talking about rodents now since some of these parts' roles aren't the same in humans and we're fuzzy on what does some things in us:

Cytochrome p450 -----Converts Testosterone to Estradiol-----> Estradiol binds to receptors in brain and differentiates it in male direction
α-Fetoprotein ------Binds to Estradiol------> Estradiol can't cross blood brain barrier, brain differentiates in female direction
DHT --------Binds to Brain Receptors ------> Additional brain structures differentiate in male direction
Testosterone ------Binds to Brain Receptors ------> Even more male differentiation

TL;DR: I don't need Google, bub.

Edit: Removed the unnecessary bit about rodents.
you had to remove the rodent part because one thing is to experiment on animals and another thing is on humans.look if you wanna feel a woman knock yourself out but you will never BE ONE DO YOU GET IT??

True, transgender women aren't genuine females, but if you feel comfortable appearing as a female then, okay. It's not a matter of authenticity, but a matter of how you feel. These things are psychological which means, there is no black and white but color.

Your assertions in the face of explanations are taking on a tone of hatefulness that is not appropriate in CR's forums. You've had your say, and this thread is for folks sharing about their identity, not for arguments about whether or not that identity meets with your approval. Please stop.
