Explain to my why I should be ok with transgender people. It's like those idiots who think they want to be treated as a cat or squirrel or some shit. Get with reality. There is no changing your chromosomes. Fuck what you want, but you're still what you were born as.
Well it's treating the symptom rather than the root cause.
And gender reassignment surgery does nothing to deter the suicide rates of transgenders. Whether they have the op or not, they're still dead inside.
It's such a ridiculous problem to have.
>waaah I don't get to wear dresses
>waaah I can't grow a beard
Sounds more like a mental disability to me. A lack of connection with reality or inability to cope.
Do you realize the shitstorm thats going to rain down on this website once the mainstream media and feminist jews get winds that some anon inserts dicks for our entertainment, you faggots have officially fucked this website for good, FUCK
Nah, I'm just saying it's a part of nature. Humans ain't the only animals that can be gay.
Any proper scientist will tell you it's not a choice. The cause isn't yet known, but it most certainly is not a choice.
what about people suffering from xenomelia or amputee identity disorder? Should they be able to chop off perfectly functioning limbs just because they dont feel comfortable with them or think they would be better without them?
Because it doesn't concern you, fucking conservatard faggot. Other people lives are not subject to your backwards ass uninformed views. Holy fuck, get out of everyone else's loves and start worrying about what a shitty human being you are.
ill make it easy and short - lifestyle is a choice
but you only think that because you don't have any conflict with your body.
that's like saying people born def shouldn't get cochlear implants, they should just accept their bodies like the rest of us
Or you could just not be an asshole. Its pretty god damn easy to be nice to people
So are you not OK with any other mental illnesses? We accommodate people with down syndrome, so why shouldn't we do the same for people with a gender identity disorder if you consider them mentally ill?
You should be fine with transgender people because they're still people. The problem stems from the fact that gender identity and sexuality are so intertwined with the rest of your psychology and physiology, and every individual situation is so subjective and different, that it's more or less too much effort to handle things on that more "realistic" level for everyone involved. It's easier to take a pseudo-progressive stance and embrace hasty surgery and hormones and perceived identities instead of digging deeper and trying to reconcile the more underlying psychological issues that are creating the confusion.
When people's wires are crossed psychologically they'll tend to look for that magic bullet; You can delude yourself into thinking "everything will turn around if I just had X or was able to do Y or looked like Z," when the reality is the reality is the exact opposite, and a healthier mental state would make you understand how superficial those kinds of fixes are.
I think that oftentimes the serious transgender issues, and to a much, much greater degree the more laughable Tumblr horseshit, needs to simply be approached differently. People in those positions ultimately deserve a lot of sympathy because in spite of finding them annoying or whatever else when put in the moment with them, the reality is they're going through some serious shit in their own world. The fundamental problem is that there's a contingent telling them to do radical things to their body instead of telling them to start taking trips to a psychological therapist.
People need to blend "acceptance" with a much larger dose of practicality, grounded-ness and science when it comes to these issues.
You make a very good point.
Anyone else just completely 100% okay with gay marriage and gay rights, but not for trans people? I am completely fine with two flamboyantly gay men loving each other, whatever that's not a big deal. But these people who are born a man, who look like a man, and sound like a man want me to call or refer to or treat them like a woman, that is just too much for me. If you want to act like a woman do it in the comfort of your home, don't rope me into your fucked up rodeo of gender.
OP isn't comfortable with his/her own sexuality, maybe when he grows up he will accept it
Because clearly people do choose their religion just like they choose to live in a dangerous area because it is part of their family tradition. If they were practical they would take the path of least resistance to avoid getting something chopped off their bodies.
Maybe because it fucks up normal dating procedure. If transgendered people had it the way they wanted you wouldn't even fucking know they have a dick or vagina until you are in bed naked together. Fuckers need to be quarantined.
I know this is just going to be food for trolls so I'm going to post this and only this.
I knew i wasn't straight from a very early age, probably 9 or 10. I was petrified of not being heterosexual because of the stigma and the judgment, especially in my hyper religious area. I have fought against it for years, trying to convince myself it was all in my head and that i really was heterosexual, but all that's ever done is hurt me. I want to be heterosexual, it would make things so much easier, but i just can't pretend to be something I'm not for the sake of acceptance anymore. I don't know whether i was born this way or if it was something in to do with nurture but i do know that i don't want to be like this, but i can't choose not to anymore than people can choose to be like this. I'm not Transgender but i support them because i know what the struggle is like. Just because you have never experienced something does not mean everyone works the way you do. Mental illness, genetics, nurture, or all of the above, i don't know, but if it can't be fixed or treated then the only choice is to support them the best way you can. That's all i claim to know.
Most of the transgender people I've asked about the subject have been of the opinion it's better to risk harm to the body bringing it in line with the brain than the other way around.
You're the one making the claim, burden of proof and all that
citation needed, appeal to authority, etc
are you guys just trolling or do you have anything legit to say that isn't just hurr muh emotions and baseless claims?
one could just as easily say clearly people choose their sexuality and some aren't practical about it or clearly people don't choose their religion. This position seems to lack substance supporting it.
>Hey uh, Doctor I uh...Wanted to talk to you about something
>Yes? What is it?
>I...I want my penis removed and fake plastic tits pushed into my chest cavity.
>I also want a cocktail of drugs so that I am more feminine and less masculine
and then the doctor said
What a heart warming story, ended right where it should've
