Transgender Surgery and Global Warming/Climate Change

" Gender dysphoria is a condition where a person experiences discomfort or distress because there is a mismatch between their biological sex and gender identity." Recently public-spirited people have been demanding public or insurance funding for gender reassignment operations.

Query, is it possible that gemder dysphoria is caused by man-made climate change? Could the use of greenhouse gases and the failure of House and Senate Republicans to ratify Kyoto be creating the need for transgender surgery?

I think “gender dysphoria” is mostly created by the influence of liberals - particularly the feminists.

I doubt if there has ever been a girl-child who hadn’t at one time or another wished she had been born as a boy. Been there myself. I can’t speak for males.

People are often dissatisfied with the traits they were born with, including gender.

Actually there is evidence that this particular condition is caused by the brain being wired in such a way that people do indeed feel they are female when they are actually male and vice versa. We are learning a great deal lately about the brain, including gender neural wiring. We have also learned it is possible to require our own brains internal structure due to neuralplasticity.

The more we learn about how our brain works, the more excited/scared I get.

If it’s modern evidence, I treat it with suspicion.

At any rate, none of it dictates action. I’m learning more about such things in my own life.

Since, for all intents and purposes, it really doesn’t MATTER in today’s life…why worry about it? If someone wants to be a ballet dancer; or arrange flowers; or fix cars or drive railway locomotives…it doesn’t matter; it CANNOT matter, by law, what their genitalia looks like.

If someone wants to have a certain sort of sex, including but not limited to anal sodomy or oral gratification…it doesn’t matter who’s genitalia are what. All that matters is that the participants all seem to be willing.

In one semester of college, one of my roommates (I had two) was a Dance major. That was an accident; and although we had no common ground, he could be fun with his stories. He was little; about five-three; and had a squeaky voice. And he liked to have the AFFECT of a homosexual. Because, he found, it got him laid easy and often.

With young women. Because they all each thought she could “cure” him by throwing her body at him. And he’d pretend to a discovery, and all that rot…in addition to being a dancer, he was a great actor. It sure beat hell out of the way I got what little action I did.

Point is…if some neurotic person thinks he’s a little girl trapped in a lumberjack’s body…so what? Act on it, if you like. Or not. You can have sex with big strapping men if you look in the right places. You can get a job waiting on customers at the ice cream parlor. You can even wear a miniskirt, if that is your pleasure.

So why do we need expensive, destructive, and ultimately futile mutilation surgery to “reassign” gender?

[/quote]Do you have a link for this? I’d be interested to read the “study” this is based on.

These “studies” on nature versus nurture are all over the map. Has the exact design and protocol of this study (or is it something else?) been duplicated and had the same results? Population size, population makeup, wording of conclusions, author caveats, publishing journal, peer comments, research sponsorship, etc.?

[/quote]One question I have asked on more liberal boards is whether gender assignment surgery really helps make the person happy, or is there usually something else going on that leaves the person miserable and depressed even after expensive (on our dime) and traumatic surgery. I wonder if the advocates of the surgery are more trying to make a statement.

I know a transgender person. She even after adopting the female persuasion (was male) is still miserable. I realize I only know one person like this, but I’ve been told most don’t ever pass the “this is my actual correct gender” hurdle and feel happy. They are often stigmatized not only by straight people, buy by gays and lesbians as well so I’m sure having all the social circles reject you probably doesn’t help.

My guess, if the condition is ultimately neurological in origin, then surgery probably isn’t the fix. The brain stays confused and wonked, forever tipping between 2 different neural wirings (this must be maddening). I could be wrong, neurology is not my area of expertise by a long shot.

[/quote]Thanks . . . especially for more than just one.

Reading (some, that is) . . .

While I did not agree with the late, great Mario Cuomo, Andrew’s father on everything, I am quite sure that transgender “rights” would not have been one of his primary causes (link to my obituary).
