That would be autogynephilia.


Autogynephilia (/ˌɔːtoʊˌɡaɪnəˈfɪliə/; from Greek αὐτό- ("self"), γυνή ("woman") and φιλία ("love") — "love of oneself as a woman") is a term coined in 1989 by Ray Blanchard, to refer to "a man's paraphilic tendency to be sexually aroused by the thought or image of himself as a woman."[15] Alternative terms proposed for this notion include automonosexuality, eonism, and sexo-aesthetic inversion.[24] The DSM-IV-TR includes an essentially equivalent definition, and recognizes autogynephilia as a common occurrence in the transvestic fetishism disorder, but does not classify autogynephilia as a disorder by itself.[25] The paraphilias working group on DSM 5 included autogynephilia and autoandrophilia as subtypes of transvestic disorder, a proposal that was opposed by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) due to a perceived lack of empirical evidence for the theory.[6][7] Autogynephilia is most notable for its use in Blanchard's taxonomy to explain the presence of gender dysphoria in "non-homosexual" (gynephilic) male-to-female transsexuals, in contrast to the gender dysphoria observed in "homosexual" (androphilic) transsexuals. Autogynephilia has also been suggested to pertain to romantic love as well as to sexual arousal patterns.

Let me reiterate:

Womens/mens fashions are merely learned as a gender role (girls wear this, boys wear that). Mass marketing and consumerism are heavy handed behind todays fashion trends mind you.

Now a boy decides its time to dress like a girl? Well girls only dress the way they do because that's what they learned socially.

Nobody is genetically programmed to wear a dress, it's what they learn they "should" wear.

Now personal taste is another issue. Hey the Scot's wear kilts right?

So then there's this thing called MTV.

Nuff said...
ACTUALLY NOT!

At this point its time to bring to everyones attention the most important documentary in the known universe (which has nothing to do with the transgender issue specifically, but everything to do with social engineering / marketing [which is what this issue being forced mainstream is all about]):


.
Thank you. I don't know how I missed that one. Coupled with m.youtube.com..., they pretty much explain everything that we already knew.

We are all pawns and puppets.

Of course knowing the truth does not free us from it.

Talk about delusional!

The DSM5 says it's not a mental disorder. The DSM5 says to use meds and therapy to treat any depression or anxiety due to the stigma of having gender dysphoria, and to treat the dysphoria itself with hormones and possibly surgery.

That's what the experts say.

No. I think they are trying to manipulate and control us; and doing a damn fine job of it, I might add.

What he completely fails to draw from the Reiner study that he refers to is the logical corollary to the study's findings - namely that a person's gender identity is wired at some fundamental level of the brain, and does not readily shape itself based on social cues.


So McHugh is right. Transgenderism is a mental disorder. The brain is wired wrong.

Thanks for sharing!

You're speaking in absolutes...

As if NONE of the "transkids" have any hormonal issues whatsoever.

And as if ALL of those 93% of children with BPA in their urine only have low doses.

While we're at it you should frame it as if they only get exposed every now and then, and skip anything to do with long term (like a persons entire life) effects.

Anyways....

Gender-bending chemical that 'makes girls as young as three aggressive and hyperactive'
A study by leading U.S. scientists has found that those exposed to high levels of bisphenol A (BPA) in the womb are more likely to suffer from behavioural problems
www.dailymail.co.uk...


So much for there being NO effects in humans, eh?


Research Proves 'Gender-Bending' Chemicals Affect Reproduction
Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) affect hormones. They are found in products ranging from contraceptive drugs to liquid detergents.
..."Until now, there has been no solid evidence to show the long-term impact of this effect on fish in the wild -- but the new research focusing on wild roach in two UK rivers (Bourne and Arun) has provided new evidence ...It was found that intersex fish -- those that had their sexuality compromised by EDCs and which contain both male (sperm) and female (eggs) sex cells -- had their reproductive performance reduced by up to 76 percent."
articles.mercola.com...


There goes transsexual fish. Oh noes!


Laboratory tests commissioned by the Environmental Working Group have detected bisphenol A (BPA), a plastic component and synthetic estrogen, in umbilical cord blood of American infants.
Nine of 10 randomly selected samples of cord blood tested positive for BPA, an industrial petrochemical.
BPA has been implicated in a lengthening list of serious chronic disorders, including cancer, cognitive and behavioral impairments, endocrine system disruption, reproductive and cardiovascular system abnormalities, diabetes, asthma and obesity. articles.mercola.com...


Good thing it has NO effects on humans, huh?


Europe tightens 'gender bender' chemical rules

Europe has tightened controls on a "gender bender" chemical present in food and drinks which has been linked to breast cancer, fertility problems and other illnesses.
www.independent.co.uk...


Those kooky Europeans! Breast cancer isnt an "effect", right?


BPA study of Chinese factory workers finds link to reduced semen quality
In 2010, a five-year Kaiser Permanente Northern California study of more than 500 male Chinese factory workers found that those with high levels of the compound bisphenol A (BPA) in their bodies had decreased sperm concentration, decreased total sperm count, decreased sperm vitality and decreased sperm motility.

This is among the first human studies showing a negative connection between BPA and semen quality. Previous animal studies had already found a negative connection between BPA and male reproductive systems in mice and rats.
researchnews.kaiser.org...


Sperm doesn't have anything to do with sexuality, right? Not linked to the testosterone hormonal system, no? And hormones don't have anything to do with gender, correct?


Study links BPA in plastics to erectile dysfunction
Among the men who work with BPA, the risk of having difficulty ejaculating was seven times greater than it was among the non-exposed group, and the risk of erectile problems was more than four times greater. The BPA-exposed workers also reported higher rates of low sex drive and lower overall satisfaction with their sex lives, according to the study, published this week in Human Reproduction and funded by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health.
www.cnn.com...


Nope, nope, nope!


“Bisphenol A (BPA) is an estrogenic endocrine disruptor widely used in the production of plastics. Increasing evidence indicates that in utero BPA exposure affects sexual differentiation and behavior…We hypothesized that BPA may disrupt epigenetic programming of gene expression in the brain…BPA exposure induced persistent, largely sex-specific effects on social and anxiety-like behavior, leading to disruption of sexually dimorphic behaviors.”

This study:

Doesn't say anywhere about them testing those kids for BPA. If they only tested for normal estrogen testosterone, but not BPA, then their science does little for this discussion.

you seem to equate being a tomboy with being transgendered...they are worlds apart, what parent in their right mind would even think to make a girl a boy just because they act like a tomboy...that doesn't even make a lick of sense.

how can you possibly think a parent could mistake 1 for the other (implied in your post) a tomboy is a girl that likes to play sports instead of playing with dolls ( according to you), well, a tomboys brain isn't telling them they are the wrong sex...a tomboy doesn't go to bed every night and pray to god that they will wake up a male. ( that was a quote from chastity bono now chaz bono)

the parents of these children they don't just wake up one day and decide their child is transgender..this happens after years of the child insisting they are the opposite sex, the depression, many dr visits,many therapy visits.......these parents just want a little respect ,a little dignity ,and safe place in the world for their children.....like any other parent would

I quoted an actual study that put the lie to everything you'd tried to insinuate thus far about hormones and Trans* folks.

Then I quoted your own sources that you had, neglected, to quote fully.

No you're making meaningless suppositions that are disputed both by your articles and the study I provided.

Now, you're quoting from a tabloid (Daily Mail UK) but even so, you're not quoting the relevant portions:



The study, published in the journal Pediatrics, found no such link among boys.


Oopse. There goes your male to female Trans* link.




Joe Braun, a research fellow at the university, said: ‘None of the children had clinically abnormal behaviour, but some had more behaviour problems than others.


Oopse again. There goes your desperate tentative link between any child and BPA.

Your tabloid failed you too.

Look, you can post your cherry-picked quotes from articles to your hearts content.

Your own sources, and one actual scientific study, completely demolish your contentions thus far.

Now, have fun cutting and pasting ... but I bet folks are going to read your sources bit more closely now.

Wah.

So boys weren't found to be made hyperactive, like the girls WERE, in that particular study.

So now you'll go and turn it into some sweeping notion as if it, or anything herein PROVES that BPA doesn't affect kids (any of them), has no possible role in early stage transgenderism.

Your fallacious absolutisms are the worse I've seen in this thread, or any thread since my latest American Imperialism thread. EDIT: I take that back, the pro-imperial war machine pro-wars of conquest people were far more reasonable than this.

Meanwhile, the big study you swept in here with to crush everything I'm talking about, doesn't appear to have studied the BPA levels in any of the children. Maybe testing 101 kids does PROVE that NO ONE EVER has EVER had natural hormones play ANY role WHATSOEVER in the development of a transgender complex.

BUT IT STILL DOESN'T PROVE THAT SYNTHETIC BPA HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THOSE 101 KIDS!!!

Here we go:

The fact that there was so much overlap between characteristics of "male" and "female" brains suggests that most people don't fit into one of these two categories.

Instead, the researchers wrote, each brain "is a unique mosaic of features, some of which may be more common in females compared with males, others may be more common in males compared with females, and still others may be common in both females and males."

Margaret McCarthy, a neuroscientist at the University of Maryland who was not involved with the study, said it offered the first strong evidence that there's no such thing as a male or female brain. That's not to say there are no sex differences in the brain, but these differences are not uniformly different in any one individual, she told Business Insider in an email.
www.businessinsider.com...


Brain scans are effectively of no use in this discussion, if that is the latest gospel.

Okay so I'll admit to a certain motivation of trolling out against BPA saturating the environment, and the social engineering / depopulation agenda that has been underway for decades (and is now the mainstream diversion following Obama's edict).

In the full scope of things, each individual case will end up being a complex of markers and associations between at least the following (many or most from the list [that truly are involved], all playing some role in any given individual):
-Genetic
-Addiction
-Social Engineering / Media
-Natural Hormonal Issues (including 'other' hormones that have been overlooked so far)
-Un-Natural Hormonal Issues (BPA being but ONE example)
-"________" (lacking a term, a warped sort of gender twist on Sexual Perversion / Kinkiness)
-Sexual Perversions (Autogynephilia, Voyeurism, 'Auto-Gender Role Playing', etc)
-Abuse / Trauma
-"Acting Out"
-Self Consciousness (of the learned negative self esteem, detrimental sort)
-Social Deviance
-SissGender (the age old opposite of Tomboy: Sissy)
-Other Drug / Chemical Factors (endless directions this could go)
-Diet
-Mental Disorder(s) / Brain Damage
-Parenting / Abandonment Issues / etc
-Individuality (/ or rather some sort of "Auto-Isolationism")
-Other Social Variables / Influences / Learned Behaviors
-Personal Taste
-(Subconscious) Motivated Reasoning (look up MR)
-Psychotropic Drugs

Mind you basically all of these could be elicited in an individual via learning / mind control / indoctrination / brain washing / peer pressure / abuse / trauma / disease / etc.


And that's what I came up with in a mere few hours of contemplation (4 hour edit window).
