Chromosomes don't lie. Anything else is pure imagination and appeasement. But who am I to tell someone who to be? I just state facts, the rest is entirely on you.

So, those kids raised in the woods by wolves should actually BE considered wolves, then, from a fair and canine perspective, because it would be cruel and biologically fascistic to put society's species pressure on them and say they weren't?

Probably because it, much like other notable websites, is a cesspool for shit. Not to say it's all like that, but there's plenty of stupid/ignorant shit on there.

Sex and gender are different things aren't they as far as definition is concerned.

For me, i'm not really associating things I hate to tumblr...just using it as a seemingly valid resource. I think the associating thing is just a joke because of all the extreme, nit-picky dum dums on there. Kinda like if there's one annoying guy on a trip, it kinda ruins it for everybody. So we all refer to "that guy" when talking about that trip. I think.

People can be born as either biologically male or female if you want to think that way, but that view doesn't take into account the research on transgenderism or the people that are born with one chromosomal structure but developed naturally as the other. It's just that accepting that we were wrong and changing people attitudes is clashing with learned hatred and biases. Like, there are still people out there who believe homosexuality is a mental illness.

Called either "Narcissism" or "Misogyny".

Gender is a wide range of things and I can go one forever about the feminist view of it, etc. But I should be studying right know.

I think actual gender issues are relatively rare. At least I'm sure they are certainly much less common than what we see online. People must remember a few things.

1. Actual gender issues =/= not wanting to conform.

2. It seems trendy to complain about depression and problems in the teen angst years. Where there are no problems, the teen angst will frame things so that a problem to complain about exists. Totally understandable in these hormone-charged years but people need to be constantly aware of this.

3. Social media and the internet put things on blast, making them seem more common than they probably are.

4. Believing that there's an issue when there actually isn't might be Munchausen syndrome or simple delusion rather than the actual issue.

5. Most of the people wailing about their gender issues HAVE NOT been psychologically evaluated and basically proclaim they are a certain way because they feel like it.

6. People love to try hard to be different.

7. Our youths spend less and less time outside and spend more time online and sedentary in their computer chairs. This will certainly affect a person's outlook, especially if done through the impressionable early years of life.


That being said, I'm aware that ACTUAL gender issues do exist. However, I'm not exactly a supporter of psychological self-evaluation and I don't think it's very accurate to self-diagnose a disorder.

Male or female is biology. You have a penis or a vagina. That's it. Everything else such as how you act, your hobbies, your career, etc. is up to you.

You can feel like a different gender, and that's totally fine, but it doesn't change the fact of what you have between your legs.


there is an operation in thailand for that.

Rather like the people campaigning for local government to allow them to list "Jedi Knight" as their practicing religion on questionnaires.

Whether or not OTHER people officially consider them to be Jedi Knights, or look at them strangely should they take their robes and plastic lightsabers to the Wal-Mart, is another issue entirely.

He's comparing people that religiously identify themselves as some random made up religion to people that sexually identify themselves as some random made up sex
