LOL. Still triggered?


What's with this ' triggered ' crap... are you triggered to try and trigger?

We're discussing the topic, and we do get a chance at fair input I hope.

I am playing their game, remember? I am using their word "triggered".


May I ask if you are TG Deaf Alien ? If so what gender did you transition to ?
If you already discussed and I missed it, sorry.

If I am being to nosy, sorry again. Just trying to understand you and your situation more clearly.

I was born 100% male and still a full and hairy male. Though I am still deaf from birth. I hope one day there will be a medical advance where I will be able to get a surgery and become 100% hearing. That would be so wonderful as I will finally be able to listen to classical music and enjoy them. The odd thing is that most deaf people would refuse that surgery due to the Deaf culture. (Long history due to Cochlear implant and said culture)

Thank you for answering my questions .. and I hope someday you get that gift of hearing .

Maybe you will then understand transgender people?

And thank you. It has been my life long dream of enjoying classical music. Can you guess the first composer I would listen to after the surgery?

Given a choice, I'd rather see a kid get a tatoo than Hormone Replacement Therapy. One makes you sterile and the other doesn't.

Nope it doesn't make you sterile. Oh wait I forgot. You're a troll. Never mind.

Whats with the constant personal attacks from you? Do you have anything at all on topic to post?'
I'm not a troll, I try by and large to discuss the topic at hand, which is more than I can say for you.

Perhaps you could link me to the post you claim debunks the following?

ohns Hopkins Psychiatrist: Transgender is ‘Mental Disorder;' Sex Change ‘Biologically Impossible’

Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.

Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in a recent commentary in the Wall Street Journal, where he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion that their maleness or femaleness is different than what nature assigned to them biologically.

He also reported on a new study showing that the suicide rate among transgendered people who had reassignment surgery is 20 times higher than the suicide rate among non-transgender people. Dr. McHugh further noted studies from Vanderbilt University and London’s Portman Clinic of children who had expressed transgender feelings but for whom, over time, 70%-80% “spontaneously lost those feelings.”

And still you have nothing to contribute to the actual thread itself, your playbook is failing you. I really have no idea what you mean by drawing first blood, and I don't much care. Try to at least contribute to the thread topic in the future? Is that too much to ask?

I did find another study, members can have a look at it. I'm not trying to change anyones minds, rather just uncover the evidence that is out there for anyone to see and decide for themselves where they stand on this issue. If you have children in the school system, you might end up running up against this.


A recent study released from Israel's Weizmann Institute of Science refutes propaganda from LGBT activists who detach gender completely from sex and promote that men can become so-called "women" by merely "identifying" as female, and vice-versa.

Professor Shmuel Pietrokovski and Dr. Moran Gershoni, both researchers from the Weizmann Institute's Molecular Genetics Department, "looked closely at around 20,000 protein-coding genes, sorting them by sex and searching for differences in expression in each tissue. They eventually identified around 6,500 genes with activity that was biased toward one sex or the other in at least one tissue, adding to the already major biological differences between men and women."

Pietrokovski and Gershoni found genes that were highly expressed in the skin of men relative to that in women's skin, and they realized that these were related to the growth of body hair. Gene expression for muscle building was higher in men; that for fat storage was higher in women. Aside from the sexual organs, the researchers discovered quite a few sex-linked genes in the mammary glands, about half which were expressed in men.

Because men have fully fitted but basically nonfunctional mammary equipment, the scientists believe that some of these genes might suppress lactation. The researchers also found genes "to be expressed only in the left ventricle of the heart in women. One of these genes, which is also related to calcium uptake, showed very high expression levels in younger women that sharply decreased with age; the scientists think that they are active in women up to menopause, protecting their hearts, but leading to heart disease and osteoporosis in later years when the gene expression is shut down."

Additionally, they found another gene that was mainly expressed in women, was active in the brain, and may protect the neurons from Parkinson's, a disease that is more prevalent in men. The researchers also identified gene expression in the liver that provides molecular evidence for the known difference in drug processing between women and men. "This recent study from Israel's Weizmann Institute of Science further proves that you cannot fool Mother Nature," said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. "The saying, 'I think, therefore, I am' is best left to philosophy and not science. Gender confusion is mental, not physical or biological. God made male and female, and no amount of protestation will change the natural created order. The fiction that a person can chose their gender does not help those who are confused. These Israeli scientists identified over 6,500 genes with activity that was biased toward one sex or the other in at least one tissue. That clearly validates the genetic differences between men and women," said Staver.

Interesting read ... which hopefully other members take a look at.

Why are my posts all wonkey ? I have your whole post with info and it won't show on my

Why do you say that I had nothing to contribute to this thread? I guess you haven't really read this thread. And I have contributed to other threads a lot too.
So far your contribution to this is linking to debunked studies.

If it was debunked it would be in the Hoax bin right?

Alls I see is the same thing as is happening in this thread, a vocal minority of 5 people are on the attack, pushing their agenda on the majority. That thread recieved 120 flags and the first post recieved 95 stars, it seems that a lot of people who didn't actually post in the thread still gave it a flag and star.

It is not in the hoax bin because it is an ongoing debate.

The number of flags and stars do not make it any true. It could just mean that they don't really understand the topic and merely have a knee-jerk reaction to it through conditioning, probably through churches.

You blame religion for so many opinions. I know of atheists who feel the same way.

You have religionphobia Deaf Alien... if you can live being that way and demand respect.. I in turn demand respect for being transphobic.

I was a Fundie for 35+ years. I was referring to churches preaching that LGBT is a sin. It is not "religionphobia". I know there are people who have the same opinions that are not influenced by churches so you can stop with the accusation.

It's pretty simple, let kids be kids, let them learn on their own, and let them learn at their own pace


False, a Higher Power established gender boundaries for a reason. Throwing away those boundaries is like asking for judgements against the people by a Higher Power.

I assume this could be because more people are aware. Of course, a lot of these kids could be confused. A lot of these kids also never have been treated / reported. The heightened awareness is good & bad if you look at it that way.

i only see this kind of thing as one of the symptoms of overpopulation and also a lack of guidance by parents or society when children are still forming their personality and beliefs.
apparently i'd say the newer generation of parents are focusing too much on themselves and ignoring their children, as a result they either act to get attention by appealing to the things their parents seem passionate about (equality, gender identity, gay rights, discrimination, etc) or they decide to figure it out by themselves on the internet and are given misguided advice by people with their own selfish agenda towards these issues.

children and teens are too young biologically to be one thing or another, they become what their parent figures, elders and peers makes them, no one is born gay or straight, they become it.

all these parents who are embracing these ideas and lifestyles for their children are just lost misguided fools seeking a cause to fight for, to feel important and special in some way, to make their lives feel less empty and meaningless.
