I've got a question. Does transgenderism have anything to do with same sex attraction? Are they 'falling in love' with some kind of 'ideal' love they might be receiving or being 'tempted' by by a member of their own birth sex? The innocent, soft spoken, clean, male or female to which they are 'wooed' over?

No longer the sports masculinities or the female femininities but by some 'geeky' male or female who might be able to make you squirm in bed but be as an 'angel' in public?

Allow me to give you an example:

Casting Crowns, Can Anybody Hear Her (song)

Lyrics

She is running
A hundred miles an hour
In the wrong direction
She is trying
But the canyons ever widening
In the depths of her cold heart
So she sets out on another misadventure just to find
She's another two years older and she's three more steps behind
Does anybody hear her?
Can anybody see?
Or does anybody even know she's going down today?
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that's tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her?
Can anybody see?
She is yearning
For shelter and affection
That she never found at home
She is searching
For a hero to ride in,
To ride in and save the day
And then walks in her prince charming
And he knows just what to say
A momentary lapse of reason
And she gives herself away
Does anybody hear her?
Can anybody see?
Or does anybody even know she's going down today?
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that's tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her?
Can anybody see?
If judgment looms under every steeple
If lofty glances from lofty people
Who can't see past her scarlet letter
And we never even met her
If judgment looms under every steeple
If lofty glances from lofty people
Who can't see past her scarlet letter
And we never even met her
Never even met her
Does anybody hear her?
Can anybody see?
Or does anybody even know she's going down today?
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that's tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her?
Can anybody see?
Does anybody hear her?
Can anybody see?
Or does anybody even know she's going down today?
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that's tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her?
Can anybody see?
He is running a hundred miles an hour in the wrong direction

For shelter and affection
That she never found at home
She is searching
For a hero to ride in,
To ride in and save the day



What is that 'hope' that's tucked away? That hope is confidence to be able to live and survive in the world alone if need be.
And are these the persons the transgender gets attracted to because they might be afraid they cannot make it on their own? And when a male or female who uses this 'hope' that is tucked away within them against other human beings to have the others as 'toys' or 'trophies', is that where the hearts begin to break and be shattered if that person with that 'hope' commits adultery with another person to leave the first 'stranded' and being said, 'Why do you have such a problem', to?


Is this why (J)esus Christ is the Best Person alive, or what? Because He would never do such a thing?


What is that 'hope' that's tucked away? That hope is confidence to be able to live and survive in the world alone if need be.


I mean, this is good, of course, but for an entire Earth population to become as them in the same ways in the same lights and fashions? I think it strange more than 'normal'. Why is this? Because today's Millennials and youths are being trained that these current 'self survivors' are the ITS in the world regardless of their personal 'character' to other things besides their bodily cleanliness. In other words, what sorts of 'accomplishments' do they have that they might be able to use to help 'support' any kind of 'marriage'?

I mean, sure.. They are clean. But even 'soap' requires to be purchased. And the tub needs scrubbing from time to time not to mention the poop flusher, right?

I've been in apartments where lava lamps and bean bags were arranged in nice manner and fashion and where the decor represented a certain 'niche' they had an affinity towards but their bathrooms, their shower hair catcher and their bathroom vanities was not in their living rooms nor bedrooms, right?

You could almost tell a bachelor from a non by this one thing. Pubic hairs on their bathroom floors not being swept up. Go to your bachelor friend's house and see if his bathroom floors or bathroom tubs are 'good' enough for marriage. Sometimes it's like stepping into a swamp. And that is what 'living at home' is supposed to do. Help prepare for the 'bachelor' part of life. Laundry, cooking, trash, bed linen folding, socks/underwear drawers, vacuum, dish washing, etc... It happens every day if not every week or every often. It isn't being done just for 'show', right? It's being done to 'teach and show' something.


But 'transgenders' and their emotional 'love'. What is it they are 'falling or in love' with?


Let's put it this way: Gay males who are not looking for relationships who are out and open. Call them 'promiscuous' and they might reply, 'I know and I'm fine with it'.

So you hope they keep to safe sex practices, not only to bodily fluids but also to bodily 'dimensions' and 'make up' and 'functions'. And also to proper 'disposals' of 'prophylactics'. I wouldn't want them tearing an inner part of their 'rectum' or some other inner organ that is effected, such as the prostate. I mean seriously... who ever heard of 'prostate' problems until seen by a doctor? But why would anyone see a doctor about their prostate?

Gay males who are out and looking for relationships.

'Transgenders'. What are they looking for? Promiscuity or relationships?

transgender is a congenital phenomena when the foetal brain and foetal body develop along different pathways. the brain develops as one gender and the body as another. the result is exactly what the individuals describe, a female with a male body. or a male with a female body. thats exactly what has happened, nature has given them a physical body that doesnt match their brain.

thankfully, we have become very good at gender reassignment surgery, male and female, and these individuals can get the congenital abnormality reversed.

it is nothing to do with same sex attraction, or promiscuity. nor, for the record, is it anything to do with abuse, trauma, mental illness, lack of religion, or any of the other absurdities that sometimes get raised in connection with this topic.

Are the gender differences in the corpus callosum present?

in terms of structure, function, and reaction to the environment:

we now have evidence that sexual differentiation of the brain differs in young people with (gender dysphoria), as they show functional brain characteristics that are typical of their desired gender."

Transgender brains are more like their desired gender from an early age

but this report doesnt discuss the corpus callosum specifically.

this

Structural Connectivity Networks of Transgender People

is a more thorough article. their conclusions are that there are many instances where there are differences between male and female brains, and transgendered people often follow the patttern of the brain they identify as and not their physical body. but there are also instances where transgendered brains stand out as different from cisgendered brains, regardless of gender. like all research, they conclude 'more studies are needed'.

Thanks. I guess basically the question remains: When did you and I decide to be heterosexual? :)

sometimes things go too far.

Trans Man: A trans man is someone who was assigned female at birth, but now identifies as a man.
Trans Woman: A person who was assigned male at birth, but who identifies as a woman
Female to Male: This term is often abbreviated to ‘FTM’ and refers to a transsexual or a transgender man.
Male to Female: This term is often abbreviated to ‘FTM’ and refers to a transsexual or a transgender female.
Transsexual: A person who emotionally and psychologically feels that they belong to the opposite sex. Transsexuals are people who transition from one sex to another, usually through dress, hormone therapy, etc.
Cisgender: A person who identifies with the gender of which they were born. For example, if someone is born as a female and identifies as a woman.
Cis Female: Cis is short for cisgender. So a cisgender female is a female who identifies as a woman.

Gender Non-Conforming: A person who does not identify with either the male of female genders.
None Gender: A person who does not identify with any gender in particular.

Trigender: Translates to three genders. A person who shifts between the male, female and third genders.

it is just the most perverse fad ever
its no fad, the phenomena has been documented for centuries. and it certainly isnt something one would do for fun or attention or any other reason, transition, as it is called, is an incredibly difficult process.

NONE of this is settled science
true, there are many questions still wanting answers. but thats true for any phenomena in any science, its a meaningless comment. how the heart beats isnt settled science either, but we do know a certain amount, and that certain amount allows us the capacity to intervene when it doesnt beat properly. nothing is proven, thats the cornerstone of science, but many things are known. stephen jay gould had a nice comment, that it gets to the point when there is enough information, from enough trustworthy sources, that it would be perverse to withold conditional agreement.

regarding the transgender phenomena, we are probably at that point. enough is known to say it is a congenital condition where the gender defining process that affected the foetal brain and body were different. enough is known to say that surgical correction of the physical body is effective and appropriate treatment. enough is known to say that simply dismissing transgendered people as insane/ attention whores/ damaged, is wrong.
