that is the trans community and yes when they seek hormones or surgery, it is clearly an illness. body dysmorphia.
but that is just the t in lbgtwhatever. the other parts and the 3rd gender people, imo, are just variations in sexuality and personality. I don't think there is anything wrong with them.
I think there is a solution to the body dysmorphia
I see it as a mental illness. Purely because its a denial of reality. My heart goes out to anyone who feels this as it does for any other mental illness but anytime you can not accept reality it is a mental illness.
You can be a feminine man who is also gay and thats completely acceptable. You can be a masculine woman who is lesbian. You could be any combination of these things, but it doesn't change your biological gender.
I can understand gender-norms making you feel like your the wrong thing but that doesnt change facts. Ill call you whatever you introduce yourself as but my definition of gender does not change.
Lastly, when it comes to surgery, you are harming your health because of a mental illness. Changing genders does not cure the problems either. Transgenders have the highest suicide rate of any group in the world.
I'm all for freedom of expression, but the pronoun debate is a bit nonsensical
This is a pretty old thread. I'm not sure those people are around any more.
So is being gay a mental illness to you
if they are the exact same thing, why are there 2 different words to describe it?
Gender and sex are the same thing
Unfortunately, psychologists had to f*** it up by calling it a social construct, which it is not.
gender is not a scientific or medical term. so you are wrong.
The AIDS being spouted by the liberal shitter in this debate is just gross. Heres how it is:
Neo Nazis can live anywhere.
Nazis live in Germany.
"Gender roles are extremely strict in this nation"
Wait, what country do you live in?
Such mixed sexless people should be thrown off from a cliff. Only people with pure gender can live.
socially, if they dare.
isnt US a democratic country? People have the rights to choose their clothing.
scottish guys wear skirts. Its acceptable.
idk. do you know what it feels like to be a man?
do you feel like Clint eastwood?
or mister Rogers?
what does it mean to feel like a man? that is so dumb. the only thing you know what it feels like is yourself. and I bet it's way different than your same race, same gender, similar age neighbor.
they feel like acting flamboyant but not quite. gender roles are extremely strict in this nation. women have ALOT of rules. men not so much... but don't you dare break any of them.
a girl in jeans has been acceptable for a long time now. a guy in a skirt... poor kid til this day.
How do you feel like you belong to both genders, unless you're biologically a hermaphrodite? I know I'm a male, but I don't actually feel the the "male-ness" swirling around inside me. Do you just suddenly think "Hmm, I'm a man but I feel more womanly today" and decide to live by that? Unless you decide that you fit into the other gender's stereotypes, which are not particularly accurate.
sexuality is not gender.
one can be gay straight or bi, but still feel androgenous, yet not asexual.
one can be attracted to only one gender, yet feel like a fusion of both.
it's really often times more of a rebellion to gender norms, like a Tom boy, which we are OK with, but not always, but more varied. Tom girls, Tom fusions, Tom neithers. idk.
it's not who you want to sleep with, although they do often go hand in hand. one could generalize that most of them are likely some kind of sexual that is probably not hetero, but one would be a bigot to assume all of them are.
Overall, the possible sexualities I can think of are:
That would seem to be a complete list. For example, a man could be attracted to men, women, both, or neither. Have I missed anything?
I think it's pronounced: luhguhbuhtuhcwuheeyahhoopeewghshslyodxhejfievhpewhvslahelpmevdghfjldxbh
how to pronounce it?
I'll agree with you on one thing, that lbgtqua (last I checked) is getting ridiculous. I don't mind them calling themselves what they want but they don't have to extend the acronym ad infinitum.
but if you don't fit into any of the current terms what do you do?
I just think it's pointless to make up special little terms for yourself just to be "unique".
so you disagree with the concept of new words?
Like, pansexual is pretty much just bisexual with standards.
