You identify that they have gender dysphoria when they are insistent, persistent and consistent over a period of years. You identify that they have gender dysphoria when they are in distress because their body isn't matching what they know to be true. This is way more intense than "why does brother Billy have a penis and I don't?", or a boy who likes to play with Barbie dolls all the time.

Do you know the torture that kids and their parents go through with gender dysphoria? There have been trans female kids who have attempted to cut their penises off with scissors. That's how intense it is.

Because that's where my rights end, when they impact someone else, so why should they get special treatment?


Like what?

Yeah, a mental disorder as the title says.

Apparently you don't understand the word 'dysphoria' means so your opinion is dismissed.

If people are doing that need serious help... Maybe they need to visit the psychiatrist?

So are there any objective physical markers for transgenderism? I mean a blood test, genetic test, something along those lines, that is to say, hard biological/chemical evidence that the condition is more than just psychological?

Studies are mostly from brain scans.

There's kids who attempt to commit suicide too. That doesn't mean they are supposed to be dead, it means they need mental help. That's not really a point for your side of the argument.

All far-left wing liberal nuts....but they do have followers for their cults.




Ha ha - yeah all those 200,000 or so medical doctors and scientists don't know what they're talking about. But those 125 religious folks who think gay reparative therapy is great (even though it's never worked and causes more harm) - now they know what they're talking about.

Ha ha, you are making me laugh so hard right now.

Now, back to page 1. any thoughts on the sources demonstrating that gender dysphoria is a physical thing? ...or did you want to talk about something else?


Are you suggesting that a mental disorder can't have a biological cause?

Are you suggesting that there may be a cure out there that doesn't involve self-mutilation?

Well, its more a neurological disorder.
And why "cure" it?
Do you want to be cured of hetrosexuality? No..and even if hetrosexuality was considered wildly abnormal, you still would want to keep it
Would you want to be cured of a desire to be fit? shave? etc...
I put it down to this. personal preference. no cure is needed.

I would say any/all trans folks should start by seeing a therapist to see if what is going on is in fact just some mental issues happening. If after time they feel their way and it isn't just some sort of overall identity crisis, then carry on.

I am against giving hormones to anyone under 18
I am...open to hear..about using hormone blockers to offset puberty if there is some question. hormone treatments sterilize you, but blockers simply delay puberty without seemingly any major issue. more studies needed here.

I would be in favor of brain scans to determine pathways consistant with trans folks in order to assess if it is possibly just a "phase".

Take a science approach here. its someone else, so who cares...but in the end, understanding the issue is more rewarding than simply blasting it because its weird for you (especially when it doesn't effect you)

Actually I was referring to the point made that some boys try to cut off their genitalia - certainly a mental disorder requiring treatment.

The point went over your head by miles.

I agree that everyone should have the right to do as they wish as long as they aren't infringing on somebody else's rights.

As for the special treatment, I don't want to comment on something that I'm ignorant to, but I will say this, equal rights should mean exactly that, equal. Not equal and some.

But in this case the lines are pretty blurry, so I don't know.

You seemed quick to brush aside the view of a professional before, so I'll assume it's ok to call your priests left wing nuts.
Still, as long as you have huffpo to back you up

Its clear, at least on this site, that there are some unfortunate like minded individuals who seek not to help, not to understand, but to target and hate, by way of ignorance and malice. The same ilk that poo poo those with schizoprenia and other conditions.

Well, ATS has a pretty vast echo chamber. It feels good when people high 5 your ideological stances..even when the science isn't in.

Dont think its just some neocons though. both sides have the echo chamber thing going and when the science is inconvenient, its skipped over.

I have fallen into that trap in the past now and then, we all do from time to time, but I do try to make it a point to re-evaluate my positions when facts are tossed into my face (from either side). I would rather be confused and informed than sure of myself and ignorant I think.

You keep changing the goal posts.

It's not about sexism.

It's not about little Billy liking the color pink.

It's not about parents pushing their child to be transgender.

It is about a real condition that originates in the brain and affects self awareness in regards to gender identity.

No drug will resolve it. No therapy will resolve it. Spanking the kid and telling him that he has to quit talking about being a girl won't resolve it. Ignoring the kid won't resolve it. All those things have been tried by parents and doctors. They don't work.
