If what you feel about yourself does not match reality,you are delusional

"This intensely felt sense of being transgendered constitutes a mental disorder in two respects.The first is that the idea of sex misalignment is simply mistaken—it does not correspond with physical reality."

"a persistent false psychotic belief regarding the self or persons or objects outside the self that is maintained despite indisputable evidence to the contrary"

the state of being male or female (typically used with reference to social and cultural differences rather than biological ones).

Factually the sex that you were born as cannot be changed. You can take the hormones, change your body parts, learn how to walk and talk and act differently. But realistically, scientifically you are what you are. If you do have a sex change and pass away, many years from now if an archeologist found your bones they would be able to tell which sex you are. This is possible because you cannot change the sex that you are.
0 ups
Science, I love science! There are a lot of smart people here so I think this is the best place to talk about delusion. My question is when I encounter a delusional person who thinks that they are superior, and believes that their opinion is more credible than anyone else, should I take the initiative to confront them to attempt to teach them that they have a mental disorder, or should I ignore it in the hopes they will figure it out in their own time? I am only interested in the science of the subject of delusion, not opinions.

It's not that transgender people exist, it's that we're expected to just accept that somebody's sex has changed just because they said so. If thy go through the actual process that's one thing (although I still think it is a bad idea) but just saying that someone can change sex by self identification is absolutely 100% retarded.

In order to trans-form into the opposite gender one MUST complete intensive psychotherapy, gender reassignment hormonal therapy, and most importantly gender reassignment surgery. Not just Brest implants or reduction.
If you are a woman with a p*nis then you are a man. Same for a girl with a vay-j-j.
A man in a dress with a p*nis who intends to date women ( Bruce Jenner) is a man in a dress, not a lesbian. Vice versa also applies. A dear friend who happens to be a lesbian laughs because now she can don her usual masculine attire and tell the world she's "trans" without changing one bit from the person she has been for 50+ years.

Transsexual is an older term. It has lost favor within the trans communities and transgender is the preferred umbrella term. However, you are correct those who "feel like the opposite gender" do not undergo the same reassignment as those who truly believe they are in the wrong body. In the present to-do re: going to the potty, I have not met a single trans person who does not live as their preferred gender. Therefore unless there is a gender examiner at the potty door no one will know who is in the next stall.

It's not ignorant to understand the basic differences in a man and a woman. It's ignorant to totally throw biology out the window in favor of feelings. I won't mince words, I think people with gender dysphoria need mental help, not surgery.

I don't care what a transgender person does in their spare time but the staggering attempted suicide rate speaks for itself. These people are not becoming happier by pretending to be women (or men) and encouraging it simply for the sake of being some politically correct social justice warrior is not only irresponsible, it is costing these people their lives.

Well, yeah, having a whole crowd of people supporting the cognitive dissonance that is a person of a certain physicial gender struggling with the denial of their own sex, or wanting of another - I'm sorry about that, but humans aren't just fresh out of the pan, we're an old civilisation, and we're also some natural production, however artifical we'd like to imagine ourselves : I don't believe it's naturally sound to refute the reality. You can feel however particular as you wish, or intensely as you do, it probably really just boils down to some identification, somewhere, which can be supported, or nicely exposed, but shouldn't, ever, make you sick.
Just take it for an example - when you think beauty nowadays, what d'you refer to? The ladies, in general. At least, that's what I expect. It only implies some guys will not want to get left out, and that's logical too, they might adopt feministic features, more or less abusively. I'm not transgender nor do I aspire to becoming one, and I'm a proud male with all the glorious flaws cons and qualities, but I do tie up my hair with a chopstick, after all.

Touche. But their is something MORALLY wrong with what YOU just said. Are we just going to throw an entire group of people under the bus because your Little Red Book says that we legally can? You have now qualms about disenfranchising millions of people because they feel more comfortable as the opposite gender? The last time I subjugated or ostracized someone because they were different than me, I was crapping in diapers and using crayons to color in pictures of Winnie the Pooh. The fact that the same cannot be said for YOU is what is causing the train wreck that this country is today, NOT the fact that people are willing to use 250 year old words to put down other people.
I apologize if I offended or came on to strong, but I feel sickened when I see people being treated unequally solely because they are different.

Yeah, you came on too strong. I never claimed to treat anyone differently, in fact I am very consistent. If you tried telling me you were the quarterback for the Broncos last year and I didn't believe you, I would treat you the same as a man who tries to make me believe he is a woman. The degree to which you believe this, has no bearing on the degree as to which I will believe it.

It doesn't say anything about hating, per se, but the NT talks about homosexuality.

Romans 1:26 For this reason God gave them up to degrading passions. Their women exchanged natural intercourse for unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men, giving up natural intercourse with women, were consumed with passion for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in their own persons the due penalty for their error ... 32 They know God’s decree, that those who practice such things deserve to die

Diagnosed before. FYI, transgender is a VERY legitimate thing, that has existed in a very small number of people.

Honestly I'm not sure how I feel about the people who can't afford it. They're the kind of people that you never know if they honestly feel that way or are just perverted.

It's not fair to bring perversion into it; it's a gender issue, not a sexuality one. Plus, if someone really is a pervert, they'd be just as much of one after the surgery as before it, and it's really not fair to judge someone more harshly because of they can't afford it. Well, judgment really never is fair, but especially when circumstance are beyond one's control.

not sure why it matters so much. No one cares that women get fake boobs. They weren't born that way either so what's the difference?

Have you looked up the definition of gender? (Hint: it has nothing to do with genetics)
reply
1 up, 2 replies
When speaking literally, the gender you're born with is the one you stick with. However, gender dysophoria is a natural thing and the way you feel inside is the way you are inside. Outside isn't actually as important.
reply
4 ups, 2 replies
This is what always gets me. People say the outside isn't important. Your genetic code is very much internal. A man on the outside is also genetically a man on the inside.

In order to change that you're looking at thousands of dollars in surgeries and a lifelong cocktail of drugs just to pretend you're something you're not. I'm not even opposed to it on a religious level (which is what most people probably guessed) since I'm an atheist. I'm opposed to it because it isn't natural in any way. People pretend that a sex change actually changes your gender but even if the genitals are replaced a blood test will still show that you are a genetic male.

A man on the outside usually is a man on the inside. But think about this. A feminine tendency in men is natural, and actually isn't even rare. And the estrogen branches off to gender dysophoria and sexual orientation. We all know that you still aren't genetically a woman. I hate it when people argue against us for something we don't believe in. On the outside, you are still half male. On the inside, you are a complete male. But your state of mind is a matter of estrogen or testosterone. If a man identifies as a woman, you're damn right they're a man. But gender dysophoria, how you feel, is more important. Not in terms of literality (which you think we're thinking), but instead the way you act, think, speak, and any other tendency a gender may have. The genes of a person are one thing. But we like to think of sex as being the genetics, and gender as being the mental state and attitude. I know, that sounds f**king retarded, but if a man does feel like a woman in their head, it's because they actually do have several features a woman has. Not dick or vag, not X or Y, but instead who they are. And I assure you this probably came out wrong.

I can personally guarantee you that by the very definition of the word "male" your genitalia does in fact determine your gender. With your apparently exquisite understanding of the English language I imagined that you would be aware of that.

Kiln is right. Stating the obvious. If you don't believe me - go to the medical community. I'll tell you the same thing. Your genitals DO determine your gender - by definition. Not how you feel.

The same way you walk around sure of yourself, and thinking that you are superior to everyone else. All the while everyone who you encounter sees you for who you really are, a one dimensional arrogant twerp. Is exactly how a transsexual believes they are different gender even though they have the opposite genitals.

It'd be less funny if this didn't actually need to be said. Unfortunately the ridiculous hypersensitive world we live in hails people who "identify" as another gender than their actual gender as heroes. It reminds me of when Cartman decides he's a girl to use the girl's bathroom in South Park.

This country is now politically correct or die. The idea that someone can change sex on a whim without changing their genitals is so insane it boggles the mind that anyone even agrees with it.
reply
2 ups
What boggles my mind is that masses of people have decided that they are psychology professionals, having the authority to judge transsexualism as is a mental disorder, and/or debating whether or not it exists. While at the same time believing that they have the authority to invade someones privacy by confronting people if they use a restroom other than the conventional one, just because they don't understand transsexualism.

Judging by your use of the word "sin", I think it's safe to assume that you have based your opinion on your religious beliefs.
Thank you, mister preacher, for enlightening us on your narrow-minded belief in a god who hates people who are different from his "true" followers, despite all records in the bible indicating the opposite. If that is the kind of god you worship, then I hope you'll excuse me for being a little more open-minded than you and being agnostic. If you do mind, then I suppose you can preach to me about how I'm going to hell for the sin of daring to think on my own.
If you are not religious, then I apologize for the rant, and hope that you will be open-minded enough to accept my apology, and then reality shortly after.

Clearly, you are a very angry person. The sight of the word sin just drove you wild. I have to say, either that's my most impactful one word sermon ever or, you're just walking around with a load of crap ready to dump at the slightest indication that someone respects the Lord. I'll be braying for you because I know, no matter ho much you may deny it, you are really really really angry at God.
reply
1 up, 2 replies
First, I see you know how to use hyperboles. "Wild" is much to strong a word, so I prefer the much more accurate description of, "Satire followed by the opinion of a person tired of people viewing the world through the pages of their Bible or other Holy Text".
The sight of the word "sin" didn't annoy me so much as finding another "Holier-than-thou" person like the ones I've had to put up with face-to-face my entire life. You know, the ones who, much like yourself, seem to be convinced that I am choosing not to believe in your god because I just want to be angry, and that people like my friends are sinners who are choosing to be homosexual or uncomfortable as the gender they were born as to spite God.
Half my youth group is homosexual or transgender, and they're some of the best people I've ever known, certainly more so than the majority of those who are condemning them. That is why this topic is a big deal to me, more so than abortion or economics or climate change, because it directly affects people I care about. The only problem I had with their gender identity changes was when they changed their names; now that was confusing! XD
Saying that I'm angry at God is like me telling you that you're angry at the Flying Spaghetti Monster (I'm assuming that you don't believe in it). You may be irritated with Pastafarians for parodying God, but it is simply impossible to be mad at something you believe doesn't exist. I will admit that many theists irritate me, though less because they're theist than because of the mindset that often comes with being a theist. I will also admit that I think the world might be a better place without religion, but I don't know that for certain, and it's not my right or power to decide that.
Which brings up another point: basic freedoms. You and I can argue all day and never agree, which is annoying for both of us but doesn't actually cause any serious problems. That's why the basic freedoms of speech, religion, press, etc. exist in the US. The problems occur when people assume those freedoms give them the right to trample those of others. If a someone going through a gender identity crisis decides they are not comfortable as a member of X gender, changing their gender does not impede upon anyone else's rights. Refusing to sell products or services based on someone's sexuality or gender identity does. Upholding your religious beliefs isn't an excuse to trample on others' rights.

This has gotten so long, I should probably stop now : P

It is the reason for behavior,but it doesn't justify anything that causes loss of life or loss of property.It is absolutely the reason for it.Any persons decisions and actions are determined by the brain and that's a fact.If you believe that something other than the brain causes people's actions then it's your viewpoint that lacks merit.The only "Illogical episodes of bullshit" here is your comment.Breaking the law has consequences,a mental disposition could be a mitigating circumstance and judged accordingly in court.Breaking society's norms is entirely different and isn't necessarily wrong in every case.

You are fluent in gibberish. When the government decides to punish you because you don't follow politically correct doctrine du jour, that is loss of property. It's only a matter of time before they lock people up and throw away the key because of thought crimes against the regressive moon bat Progressives in power. It's already starting with some of the more radical Chicken Littles pushing bogus climate change, now telling us they "want to punish" climate change deniers. Again, loss of property, loss of liberty.

People aren't punished for being politically incorrect, they're punished for breaking the law. You might notice that you haven't been arrested or jailed for hating people who want to be different. People who are arrested for your idea of "imagined crimes" are being arrested for impeding upon the rights of others. The Declaration of Independence stated everyone's unalienable rights to "Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness", and the Constitution makes that clear. However, what you obviously have either not learned or just ignored (because it's inconvenient to your personal views) is that you forfeit your unalienable rights if you impede upon others' rights. That is when people go to jail.
And punishing climate change deniers? Seriously, do you actually think that happens? Because if you're that delusional, there's no hope for you.

There is no "justifying" going on, it's just how these kinds of people are. Whether it's because of their genes or psychological disposition, the majority of these people are better people than those who claim transgender identity individuals are "taking advantage" of the system. Transgender women who used to be men don't just change their gender identity so they can **pe women in bathrooms, despite what the ultra-conservatives and die-hard christians may say. There is no evidence to back these claims up, and there is evidence to refute them.
By loss of life, is it safe to assume you don't mean all those murders that transgender individuals DON'T commit or cause? I have never heard of any violence instigated by a transgender or transexual person. And it's not like transexuals cost society anything. In fact, bigots like you tend to be the bigger threat to public safety, property, and general well-being, so you probably shouldn't complain about others who don't.
Also, it's not like homo- or transexuality is a new thing. Humans evolved like this, so unless you're one of those lunatic fundamentalists who don't believe in factual evidence, there is no reason to discriminate against them.
YOUR viewpoint is the one with no merit, except to satisfy your illogical fears of something you don't understand and/or have been told to hate and fear your entire life.

I would like to point out that while gender and sex mean the same thing, transexual and transgender are different things. As Mangaman mentioned above, trangender denotes a change in what gender one identifies as and transexual denotes a physical change in gender.

And yes, Tumblrites do go overboard, but this is something that should be cleared up.
