Hello to all,
I am sure everyone has seen the influx of transgenderism stories in the news today. Whether it's online (a lot on yahoo),TV, chatting with a friend or maybe you know someone that is a trans, i am sure almost everyone has encountered it in someway or another. Putting all feelings and opinions aside, looking at this mental disorder (as it's currently classified) why should someone accept or deny this disorder? Again, please keep feelings aside and let's stick to science and other facts. I am strictly talking about the people that are born 100% biologically male or female, not the less than 1% that are born with klinefelter syndrome ( i hope i spelled that right).
If you are against it, why?
If you are for it, why?
Why should we ignore science in this case?
Why is science being ignored in order to please people's feelings?
I have a lot more questions but i am sure you guys get the idea and know where this is going.
Again, lets please keep this conversation factual. Lets please use rational and logic when trying to make a point.
I will start by voicing my opinion on this matter.
Personally, i believe this is a mental disorder due to the fact that how can a man say he feels like a woman when he's spent his entire life as a man? How can someone say that is a man that is on average stronger, taller, treated like man his whole life all of a sudden say they are a woman? How can someone that is 100% biologically a male, logically say they are female? How can someone that never had their period feel female? The list goes on and on but you get the idea.
While i do NOT preach hate or violence towards the transgender community, i also do NOT believe we are heading in the right direction by accommodating this mental disorder by simply accepting it, denying the most basic levels of biology simply due to the fact that we don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.
Edit : To change klinefelter disease to klinefelter syndrome
