So if more people have a gene error of thinking they are animals. Should we make a community for people who identify as animals, would it be specieophobic to not allow it. I am just wondering?

I don't even know how you can keep pumping out threads like this, then follow the title up with something that is almost entirely unrelated in the actual thread to the topic you created.

Well it wasnt very well thought out. But i did change it now because i kinda am just wondering why such weird stuff is taken seriously in the first place. Its more related to mental disorder. I mean if you want a hot body to go from male to female then go for it. But i've never understood the identifying issue

Let me figure out if I have this correct first.

You callin' transgender a mental disorder similar to one identifying as an animal?

They are mental illnesses


They are often present in the same person. Like this 'trans age' person.
All it is is a combination of mental illnesses and sexual fetishes gone horribly wrong




“I can’t deny I was married. I can’t deny I have children. But I’ve moved forward now and I’ve gone back to being a child,”


If you honestly push this as the new 'frontier' in gender and humanity, you're pushing for the destruction of modern civilization.

I like moe characters.


Since this is the slippery slope thread, I thought I'd chime in with that.

As each day passes, I am getting closer to understanding why you and some other people haven't been spending much time on the CR forums. I wish I could say that I didn't see this coming, but I did.

Traditional types never did much care for science. Memes much wow.

Transgender no--gender dysphoria yes. If one is deeply discontent with their assigned biological sex, then it is a mental illness. Such a condition can be facilitated by certain genetics, endocrinology, etc. Gender dysphoria is having gender identity that does not match one's biological sex and the mismatch causes severe anxiety, depression etc. It is a mental illness when the degree of those feelings/thoughts causes distress and negatively impacts one's or others daily lives--like most disorders are classified. That woman? Obviously mentally ill.

Example: If a girl identified with being a boy, but was okay with being biologically female...To say her gender is male but her sex is female is to be considered transgender. However, she may not be distressed about it. If you asked if she wanted to undergo surgery she might hum a maybe. Such a woman wouldn't be considered to have gender dysphoria, but would be considered transgender.

The term dysphoria inherently means a feeling of extreme dissatisfaction, anxiety, distress, and depression.

What separates someone with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and a perfectionist? Simple--it's the degree of anxiety and distress that is associated with those compulsions. Not every perfectionist is mentally ill or unhealthy. Same concept applies to transgenders.

Mental illness has to deal with state of mind...rather than nonconforming beliefs? Shocker.

I mean, we could be classifying all the religiously faithful in such a case--perhaps those that believe in horoscopes--oh my, maybe those people that believe they have an animal spirit! Native Americans were clearly mentally ill. Crazy bastards.

Obviously that line of thought is stupid.

Additionally, not every transsexual has mental illness--that is to say--some people swap sex for more mundane reasoning (perhaps cosmetics, matching their behavior so on so forth). I remember hearing of a man that changed into a woman for a bet. Stupid? Yes. Gender dysphoria? No. A transsexual can have gender dysphoria when that procedure is an answer to distress associated with a mismatch between gender and biological sex--sometimes it doesn't resolve that distress because they are, indeed, mentally ill and likely for underlying reasons (genetic, endocrinological etc.)



Weird, different, triggers you, disorderly--sure. Mentally ill? Nah, not always.

I think it's a stretch to compare transgendered people to animals.

There's a huge difference between wanting to be a girl instead of a boy and wanting to be a 10 foot tall fire-breathing dragon instead of a human.

Despite this, I think it would be worth researching why people are born this way, but I personally wouldn't want to call people who want to be animals mentally ill or something to that degree.

Only reason I'm reluctant to call these people mentally ill is because people called homosexuals mentally ill 100-150 years ago, cuz your giggle stick isn't supposed to go into another man's poop-chute, but we're fine with it today.

Anyways, guess this is one of those wait-and-see things.

You're not wrong.

Natives would regularly kill and eat each other.
Cults and religions can help to create and reinforce mental illness. Many rapid SJW types believe their made up bullshit as if it was a religion

Again, the belief does not necessitate that there exists a mental illness--you could say the mentally ill are more prone to certain belief systems though.

There is little comparison between a grandmother that speaks of the Lord to ease her grandchildren and the nutter that installs car bombs in the name of Jashin.
