Compelled speech is the antithesis of free speech.

How do you compel someone to not express their opinions? The only thing I think of how is Antifa. Oh and threats too.

I understand, you don't have to share. But I do have a few questions if you're able to answer them.

Were you aware of a vagina at that age? Or did you just not feel comfortable in your own body?

Were you aware of transgenderism, or what it meant to be a boy or girl? Did you understand what "genders" meant?

And lastly, if it isn't too personal, did you yourself come to the conclusion, or did you have any external influences? And if so, at what age did you know for sure?


F**K it I'll share, maybe it will help some to understand or maybe not. So my earliest memory of being different would have been when I was about 4-5 (somewhere in that window). I was living in Italy at the time, both my parents were enlisted Navy. I was at a sitters house one morning and they had set me up on a bean bag in front of the T.V. while they went and laid back down. Now I don't recall what sparked my intrigue/confusion or whatever what have you but I suspect that maybe at some point I had been bathed simultaneously in the company of a little girl or maybe saw a va jay jay on T.V. but either way I don't remember the exact vagina triggered my dysphoria. I do remember however pushing my little parts into my body cavity making them flush and hidden out of sight, and I preferred that. I remember thinking why does mine look different from the other girl's (whoever that girl was I could't tell you), I don't like it. At the time I did not have the understanding or vocabulary to express that to my parents so I didn't.

Fast forward to about 12 I was dressing up in secret any chance I could get with whatever clothes I could borrow/steal. It's also at this time that I saw my first Transexual on a television program and hearing her story sparked my epiphany or p "proverbial lightbulb" if you will. That is when I knew that what I was feeling was real and that I wasn't crazy but that there were others like me and I could eventually get help and be my authentic self. Fast forwarding some more well into adulthood when I finally took the plunge and started my transition about 4 years ago. I am now happier and healthier than I have ever been.

I think I covered your questions in this post but if you need further clarification I will be happy to oblige seeing has you are able to be civil about it.

Oh and for those that would seek to put me down or rain on my parade, you can't stop my sunshine because it will continue to keep on shining. Needless to say I use the ladies room harassment free




Here it is Deaf Alien and we were both correct on details.

.. her memory is only about the vagina exposure and how she or he didn't want to seem different.

I would have lots questions, gently asked ,if a transgender told me this early memory.

Some Kids are sensitive and so want to fit in and not be different.. and I could see that affecting a some 4 year olds in a profound psychological way.

Yes, ive seen multiple explosions, whats funny is you wrote something that sounded scripted. If you were over there, tell me. What was the deadliest IED that could not be stopped there?

Nope it isn't moot at all .. ( which question was that ? lol )

My thoughts on how I would deal with a child that was feeling like they wanted to be the opposite sex still stands as I stated. Lots of questions .. listening very carefully with discernment.. and talking things out with heaps of wisdom thrown in.

The question was if she saw porn on TV and you opined that it might have influenced gender dysphoria on her. It might have not been porn but a movie. I remember when TV used to show unedited movies in the 80's. Especially PBS. Oh boy I always watched movies on PBS. LOL. Benny Hill FTW.

Pretty sad isn't it? Violence and threat to suppress other's free speech right.
And it's pretty sad also to blame the left for it, which ironically by itself is "compelling" us to be quiet.

Deciding what’s ‘acceptable' has little to do with biology, and everything to do with being a decent person.


Promoting someone's delusion is not being decent or compassionate.

Innie = girl
Outie = boy

That's reality.

I eat the same food as most other folks.

If what you are saying was true then I am pretty sure we would all be swapping gender.

Actually what you say makes no sense you are making the assumption that genetically modified food ingested can somehow alter the make up of our DNA, as if eating a GM burger is going to start swapping all my chromosomes about.

Again the ignorance on this topic is outstanding.

Now am off to go eat a GM sausage then braid my hair.....


You are totally wrong, that simple. And i wouldn't say offended because that's what the internet is, a forum where everyone can act as an expert on anything and call people out as beneath him/her when his/her Wikipedia level expertise on a topic fails to familiarize the person with very real related issues Wikipedia didn't mention.

I can say 110% for certain that your opponent is right and there are people like myself and people in other situations who can surely say (though I still can't say it without shaking and tearing up and clenching my fists till my nails draw blood from my palms) that hormones in the products we consume as well as the many chemicals and carcinogens those products deliver, ruined my life in such an absolute way and took everything from me I ever had including a future, my dignity, and any motivation to see another day.

To share my story is why I signed u but these types of comments constantly remind me why I never shared a word.

To jog your memory, here is one example I can't imagine a person on ats not knowing

youtu.be...

I guess your intelligence level is just very very low.
Gender Dysphoria is a mental disorder in the DSM 5.
No amount of spin from you can change that.
You can literally quote it all day and it won't change Deaf Alien.
You can double down on stupid and continue this charade or you can admit you are wrong.

It's not their free speech. It's their right to exist!

Anyone who is for freedom and rights should stand up with transgendered and gays and everyone else who is "different" and say, "I stand with you."
