Trans intersex and non binary rights support
Posted 8/19/17 , edited 8/19/17
Since all 3 are related and all 3 groups are discriminated with intersex having genital mutilation at birth. Most of the people on this forum have said a ton of transphobic things opposing anti discrimination laws etc so I decided to make a poll.

Where's the option for people who don't give a damn about all this crap?

Neutrality aids oppressors but if you believe trans people are sick there is an option

They already have their rights, they do not deserve extra rights. You are male or female, end of story.

You shouldn't have put the option for curing in this.

We can't "cure" these things, I wish we could. It'd be better to fix whatever makes someone WANT to change gender than give them hormones and therapy to do it given the suicide rate of trans people.

And isn't intersex a genetic abnormality, like having XXY or XXYY (I think there's 6 variant after the normal XX and XY, can't remember the rest). If we could cure this it'd be the best option.

I voted "Cure", as it's the only viable option on your poll, even though it's not possible

You are wrong, end of story.

We can all play that game, but approaching it that way doesn't really do much for a main issue -- which is how to respect and treat other human beings humanely.

Unfortunately due to the current political situation any research into "curing" this what I believe to be a mental illness is unlikely to happen.
If one decides to go thru with transitioning then that is their decision even tho I do not believe that is helpful in the least and may worsen the situation in the long run.

What I dislike and will never accept until scientific proof is shown is the claim that you can somehow be neither male or female.

No, neutrality implies that the subject is not believed a real issue. It neither aids nor abets oppression. People need to stop LOOKING for ways in which they're being oppressed.

If you have to look, you aren't being oppressed. If you have to look, you have too little to do and too easy a time surviving.

Personally i don't think respect has anything to do with anything. I don't have to respect you as a person, that doesn't make me a bad person. Respect is earned not a given. I think what you were trying to say is "people who don't allow their right to be who they want to be" since I believe(but could be wrong) that you are referring to individuals who impede or vilify such life choices. However if your word choice was what you intended.. then you don't really support freedom of speech or freedom to think differently. I believe its important to let people have their freedom of speech even if its from a differing or outright hateful ideology. Anything less and its paving the way for authoritarianism. But that's just my opinion.

Based on the extremely high suicide rate among transgender people, I believe that transitioning or behaving like the gender that you are not goes against nature and fighting your natural instincts/behavior causes ones mental health to deteriorate.

And by "worsening the situation in the long run" I was referring to the political situation where we are currently headed in the direction where even suggesting that transgender people may be suffering from a mental illness is a taboo or even be legally considered a hate crime.
