Thanks for your response. However in Swingers Personals in Sweeny cases mutations and abnormalities may alter the number of sex chromosomes, or cause the opposite genitalia to develop in xx or xy humans.

If so, it would appear that biological sex is binary, regardless of the genetic code behind the outcome. Or are you stating that these chromosomal abnormalities represent different sexes? Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something sex in mammals is very binary. The only two gamete options are ova or spermatozoa. Sexual development may be a sloppy er process but there is no inbetween gamete that is produced. I am not talking about out of the ordinary examples of this condition or that condition possibly having effects on how those genes develop in a minute number of people.

I mean on a regular without mitigating factors basis. Because if there is, then your argument of there being no genes for logic, republicans, and so forth is just a way to insult the intelligence of others while in some half ass way trying to avoid answering the question properly because the answer to that question does not suit your personal beliefs.

And that is what you are doing with such an answer — mocking others to coverup your desire to not have an honest discussion on this topic where you properly answer questions even Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something their answers do not suit your purposes. You know the correct answer to that question. There are some hypothesis on it, but nothing that can be proven at this time.

And as your own answer say, such a gene is likely to never be found. With that we can finally break through to the reality of the situation. There is no gene for transgender.

There are things that can happen that play a role in gender identity. BUT those things are more rare exceptions than anything else. The reality of it all is that we are born with genetic Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something ups that can be tested and verified as either male or female. This is scientific fact. Any other identity or other such goobedlygook is something completely different. There is nothing to debate there.

Transgenderism has been shown to have genetic influence as described in the article. But if you asked a farmer centuries ago Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something inheritance, they would be able to tell you that certain traits are inherited Eat my pussy Auburn Maine to generation. I agree the genes have not been found but when they are that would make transgender treatable inutero making it possibly non existent.

Lack of existence makes fighting for permanent rights kinda moot point. It would be like putting the dodo on the endangered species list. Same for a Cheating wives in Fort davis AL gene or series of genes. Australians did a study that found issues with the SRY gene in male to female transsexuals.

Sadly large amounts of the brain and genetic research into the causes of transsexualism have been conducted outside the U. S because of prejudice both inside and outside the academic world. I believe the use of the word transgender relates to that prejudice. I know of no brain or chromosome research that has been conducted on those who identify as other than male or female. Here is a Popular Science article about the sry gene link to transsexualism. Add to that objections by the transgender leadership about studying transsexuals by sexual Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something.

Those who know the research well know transvestites as well as other forms of pseudo at ran asexual a have been allowed to transition. The word transgender comes from that and a hatred towards transsexuals by lesbian feminist.

Other than humans, has it been observed in nature? If so, perhaps genes can be identified by comparing genomes? I hope some people are still on this old article. I am a cis man.

E in bioengineering and Ph. Adult Caledonia Minnesota online sex that this is a serious question. If I understand correctly, this is separate from what sex and by sex I understand that means outward biology they are attracted to sexually. So my sincere question, because I want to understand but I do not currently, is how anyone can identify with a particular gender apart from with sex they are attracted to sexually.

I saw the whole social club argument, but I am not sure I am buying it. I have both male and female friends, but I have more women friends and in this comparison I am not including past or present lovers. Again please emphasize I am interested in logical and factual discussion. I am not attacking anyone, and I will not respond to any personal attacks. Without referring to your primary or secondary sexual characteristics how do you know that you are a boy? The answer to that question is the same answer that those of us that are transgender have.

In much the same way that some people are left-handed. Genes — there are XX and XY. These genes Mobile sex contact in Premont Texas up the potential in the womb for natal development e. The genes determine sex, but the environment in the womb nurture results in the expression of trans-gender.

XX and XY are not genes, they are pairs of chromosomes. Multiple genes are found on each of the chromosomes. While there may be certain genes that determine a single trait, often there are traits that are determined Need my tushy Boise Idaho fucked multiple genes.

As this article asserts, it may be a combination of genes on these x and y chromosomes that determine gender. Here is more information on that topic: Funny how all of his sources were debunked years ago.

Johns Hopkins has in fact resumed performing transgender surgery as of this year. Paul McHugh also tried to convince the world that the pedophelia in the Catholic priesthood was actually Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something sex with remorse. This article is highly subjective and makes false presumptions.

What we do know is that biological gender is indeed binary as the article correctly statesand as far as we know, biology describes the totality of our gender experience. The rest is entirely speculation, most of it politicized, based on scant, often dated or discredited studies with hypothetical conclusions that establish nothing close to a consensus. This article is written based on scientific studies. We seek to always represent the science fairly.

As the author, it is YOUR responsibility to provide cites and resources to justify the position that you hold or the findings your deduce from the research. You have that backwards. In the article it pointed out that other scientific studies were debunked and discredited, but why? You cannot prove your point without backing it up with a source, that source being one you used to disprove and prove your point. We agree that sources are important! While gender dysphoria used to be classified as a mental illness, it is now widely accepted that this is not the case.

The Sponsor/Sponsee Relationship | The Recovery Village

It is also widely accepted among both doctors and scientists that neither biological sex i. I have to agree with Marshall. The Scientific Method somefhing the process of eliminating possibilities through experiments, not designing experiments to support their hypothesis. This article has not considered many other hypothesis but cherry picked evidence to support the desired conclusion.

In Neurobiology you can take any group of individuals and discover similarities in their brain composition.

Somethinv the science may be sound in this article the conclusions can be misleading. There are some studies almost all human studies for which it is not possible to design the types of empirical experiments one can do with animals.

The studies presented in this article are very standard scientific studies, designed using the scientific method within ethical confines. Twin studies are the gold standard in determining genetic contribution in human studies. If more identical twins who have identical genomes than fraternal twins have something in common, then it is very likely that there is a genetic contribution.

This is because it is unlikely that two identical twins are raised in more similar environments than fraternal twins.

And this is exactly what was seen with the trait of emgers transgender! And science is definitively about consensus! With the genetic and brain structure evidence we have now and is explained in dwting articlethere is scientific consensus that gender identity has biological underpinnings. However even with consensus, evidence behind that consensus still is the strength behind the scientific claim. On cbatting note of my chattiny personal evidence, I am not the one making a Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something claim.

This paper is the one that makes a scientific claim and attempting to use evidence to support the claim. Incomplete evidence provides incomplete conclusions. If all of those experiments fail to disprove the Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something, then logically it can be concluded that the hypothesis is correct. All that this article does is show ONE experiment that supports the hypothesis emberw then published the conclusions.

To somthing and catch those holes before publishing? Again great, insightful article but it is incomplete and does not answer all questions related to transgenderism. In fact it Swinger wife swapping more questions than it answers and that in it of itself tells me it is an incomplete study with an incomplete conclusion.

This article is not a study. It is a summary of peer-reviewed, scientific-method-using literature on this topic.

The Free sex chat Richmond Furn Pennsylvania PA is not trying to make or test a hypothesis. She is just summarizing available studies.

When I asked you for evidence, I was responding to the part of your comment that said you Sex Lauro de freitas teen fuck with Marshall. Marshall said claimed that there was evidence that explained transgenderism as a mental illness. This article talks about multiple experiments she cites at least 8 studiesbtw.

The point of peer review is to catch holes in a single study, not holes in an entire field of research. Gender is much too complicated to be understood in a single study.

The studies here asked and answered specific questions e. And these studies, according to their peer-reviewers, were able to reliably answer these questions. No one is trying to explain all of the reasons contributing to gender identity in a single study.

Every field has more work to do to understand ourselves and our world more completely. As scientists, we are glad that there are always more questions to answer, for this is what keeps us employed! I believe the claim he was making referred to the high suicide rates that are comparable to those with Gender-dysphoria. Studies have even determined that gender re-assignment surgery does not help with the suicide rates.

The easy answer is to explain this away by Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something the high suicide rate is due to high exposure to bullying. Yet even among other groups that experience intense bullying still come no where close to the same amount of suicide rates.

I myself have spent two years in a situation where I was constantly rejected, spit on, robbed and even threatened at gun point. I believe that is what Marshall is referring to in the above comment and is a major flaw in the above article. Also it would be important to take into account individuals who have gone through what some would call a transgender lifestyle and lived to regret it. Understanding what helped them to not commit suicide and to Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something at peace with themselves.

Many children who believe they are a different sex tend to grow out of it as their brain and body develops. So why should we encourage a behavior that is potentially self destructive?

lke You would encourage a bulimic individual to continue throwing up would you? I would hope you would try and get them the best help possible. In fact similar neuroscience studies have found brain chattting causes for depression. Does that mean we encourage individuals with depression because it is natural?

No we help them cope with it in spite of how their body naturally developed. I see no difference in with transgenderism especially because there is no indication in studies forgo transgender individuals would stop killing themselves if the world just stopped bullying them. White men, as a group, also have higher suicide rates than the general population. Does that mean that identifying as a white man is a sign of mental illness?

Lakee, can you cite the studies that show transgender people have higher suicide rates chatitng is not due to bullying? And fourth, from the APA: Also I would look at: Figures lie and liars figure. Hiding behind the studies you choose to cherry pick while ignoring many others that YOU KNOW exist and that say something completely different with real consensus than your make believe consensus presented in this hack job article is no better than cchatting.

There are many elements of truth presented, but when you can not even address a simple question on a Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something gene without mocking people and talking in circles when the answer is nothing but CONSENSUS? Please, save us your self serving condescension. You lose all credibility at that point. If you have studies to disprove this i. We have no intention of cherry-picking.

Please let us know what other information you think should be included here so as not to give Harvaard impression. The Guardian article mentions that many therapists interviewed believe that the vast majority of their clients who have undergone sexual reassignment surgery are happy with the change.

The consensus from Hatvard article from both sides of the argument is actually that more research needs to be done, because so many follow-up studies have sampled the population poorly. Such a dramatic change inevitably produces psychological trauma. If you have a good health care provider, they will likely offer counseling after a skin transplant following severe burns that might alter your physical appearance for instance. Furthermore, this cohort study was comparing individuals who had undergone sexual reassignment to the general somtehing.

Perhaps a better comparison would be to transgender individuals who had not undergone reassingnment to see if suicide rates had gone down — which would ACTUALLY comment on the effectiveness of sex reassignment. Finally, foegot much more recent study has actually addressed some of your concerns.

It shows that while suicide Date a Rich Man Havana Arkansas rates are indeed higher among transgender individuals, these rates drop dramatically if psychological and social factors bullying, marginalization, etc.

If the individuals themselves did not have negative views surrounding transgenderism, rates dropped. This was for attempted suicide not actual. I am Sub slut wanted for my pleasure suspicious of the regret rate as so Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something are lost to follow up.

Having had two friends transition fully and partially and regret it i chattihg aware neither cases were captured as regret. In the full case the Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something continued to live as a woman as having divested herself of her ,ake she thought this the better option along with the ability to yoi the protected trans characteristic in Meet me Bearcreek Montana to her advantage in applying for jobs and housing etc.

However she was fully aware that the procedure was a mistake and she realised she was a cross dresser who had a mental Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something and became convinced that she was trans and transition the answer to her problems.

The case of my friend who partially transitioned was similar. He came to realise he was a cross dresser whose therapist had persuaded him was a sign he was actually trans gender. He know considers that this was delusional thinking encouraged by a mental health professional when he was suffering depression.

As the other two trans people i know who are happy with their transitional so have serious mental health issues i am chztting to think from this case study of Horny women Hunt Valley that whilst for some genetics may be at play that there is a large scope for other aetiologies.

In fact it seems negligent to ignore this as allowing Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something people to modify their bodies so drastically in ways dxting may later regret even if not officially is unethical. The biological basis this article promotes acts to encourage a lack of gatekeeping for treatment which i see as very important to ensure only those who would really benefit are permitted to be treated. That said, you really should read up on intersex and how that works — on a genetic level.

Gender, on the other hand, is socio-cultural. Bibliographies on both these works are a good resource for bringing yourself up to speed in the gender studies field. Transgender is not viewed as a pathology. Moods do not necessarily correlate to some sort of neuro-pathological state e. Gender presentation by and large is a socio-cultural function. There are two windows in natal development for sex differentiation: The DSM was changed not by scientific pressure but by political pressure.

This is no different than the EPA changing its criteria based on Exxon lobbying. I would dearly love you to cite the evidence that gender dysphoria responds to psychopharmacological treatment or talking therapies as the disorders you mentioned do.

Trans people have a perfectly good idea as to what their bodies look like. There embere no fussing over any minor or imagined defect. Just one more bit of data suggesting that yoy dysphoria is not in the same realm as BDD and other disorders if they were, it would stand to reason that the same datinng of treatment would effect similar ylu.

Transgenderism is not at all like anorexia emberrs other body dysmorphic illnesses because transgender patients were treated in the same exact way medically and psychologically as people with BIID, anorexia, etc and did not respond ylu the therapies or medication in anyway. However, people with anorexia, BIID, etc did and do respond to those therapies and medications.

You should look into chattingg history of how transgender people were treated by the medical community because they treated exactly like people suffering from body dysmorphic illnesses. However, transgenderism did and does respond very well to the way that it is treated today, which is first to help the person come to terms with their transgender status, and then from there to help the person decide what the next course of action should be from transitioning socially, medically, Iso girl who enjoys 69 do nothing.

As for the comorbidity rate much of that is due to the very negative way in which transgender people are treated, and perceived by society.

As the current treatment and standards of care for. However, after talking with a gender therapist, socially transitioning, and especially after being on cross sex hormone replacement therapy for a few somethint my gender dysphoria completely went away. Again if transgenderism were cognitive disorder like BDD, anorexia, BIID, etc then is should have responded to the treatments used to help people with Harvarv disorders, and they Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something no effect embegs all.

And certain Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something for Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something of. The reason I believe for this is simple and that is that transgenderism in and of itself is not a mental disorder or illness.

Down below is an excerpt from a paper that Dr. Milton Diamond wrote in as well as a link to the entire paper. Milton Diamond is please google him as he has contributed probably more than anyone rating to Single bbw in Colwyn Bay understanding of gender, transgenderism, and interseuxality.

He has been studying and publishing papers on every gender related since Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something, and is also one of the people Hurricane on dirty sex did a study with fraternal and identical twins looking to see if there is a genetic component to transgenderism.

Soemthing located a set of identical twins who were adopted away at birth, and who were raised in different countries, spoke different languages, and both transitioned at around the same time, and both talked about experiencing their transgenderism similarly. In fact, down below is a link to a youtube video with him discussing the results.

I believe that transsexuals are intersexed in their brains as others are or might be more obviously so in their gonads, genitals, hormonal character, receptors, enzymatic or chromosomal constitution. And it is this brain intersexuality that biases the person to assert his or her gender identity.

As a retired RN, having researched this thoroughly, I stand with you Kristin. They do basically consider it normal to have gender fluidity. As mentioned, at least 6 genes have been identified for gender ID. As mentioned, indigenous peoples identified and were comfortable Housewives wants nsa Sanostee this, until the arrival of missionaries, who punished if not complied with male Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something female period.

Due to their choice of beliefs. Society is changing thank goodness, one is either for humane treatment of humans, or not.

HB2 in North Carolina was passed not long after I came out last year, and I was told by a man in a Facebook thread, as a broad, sweeping declaration, that he was coming for us all with a can of gasoline.

Teh Children never seem to come under consideration when we are discussing the suicide rates of queer youth, or the fact that Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something queer people, such as myself, have actual real live children of our own.

Martin Luther King Jr, and ignore all the rest. It is so backward, I might laugh, but it is a serious matter when society thinks as you do. Some academics highlight Horny women in Chenega Bay pattern where those who benefit from a type of privilege are unwilling to acknowledge it. American sociologist Michael S. These special rights protect the marginalized from the many micro and macro aggressions taken on them, in daily life.

In the USA, our Constitution Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something Rochester grad looking for somethin good for all.

Wonder why this is not true? You are being dramatic about not being able to criticize an article. Free speech is in our Constitution also. IF you are still reading, I would suggest using the Google to research privilege, the lives daily of marginalized persons non-white, non-binarymedical research- use.

I do somethung you well on a journey of eye opening, and hopefully more empathy and compassion for all the humans who live on this earth. Thanks, hope you can have success; usually humility is earned via suffering. I will pray you learn humility. It is proven science that the X and Y chromosomes are not the determinant of sex assignment. To believe they are is to make yourself into a relic of the past. This is very interesting to read as a sgone girl myself.

Twin studies are a common way to determine how much a trait is caused by your genetics or the environment.

I Ready Teen Sex

Identical twins have the same genes, so if gender identity were entirely due to genetics, you would expect that two identical twins would always have the same gender identity. However, identical twins often though perhaps less so in your case have very similar environments, too siblings are often exposed to the same water growing upso these studies use fraternal twins who Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something different genetics, but similar environments as a control.

In the case of gender identity, more identical twins share gender identity than fraternal twins, meaning that there are some genetic causes. So since you and your brother are identical twins, it suggests that differences in your environments played a role in the differences in your gender identity.

I hope that answers your question! Marshall, you represent the multitude of ignorant people that harbor anger toward anyone that is different from them. You discount science because you are threatened by a group of persons that are not doing anything personally to you.

Human beings are sexually dimorphic, end of discussion. The author fails epicly to disprove this, instead touts out the vague assertion that science tells us that gender, mind you gender is a social not biological construct, is not binary. This assertion takes the discussion from a hard science such as biology or chemistry to the soft science of sociology, in other words an educated guess. So effectively the author is arguing, poorly, that there might be some some Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something evidence to support a basis Ladies looking real sex Ithaca Ohio this deviant behavior.

Keep in mind I am using the sociological definintion of deviant, which is defined and any behavior that is contrary to the dominant norms of a society. That pretty much ends the discussion right there. Saying something has strong support in the social sciences is like finding someone in a mental institution that claims God told me Lonely housewives want sex Port St Lucie do it.

Saying something is peer reviewed in a hard science carries far more weight than one from a soft science.

I do not see an overwhelming amount of evidence here to support most of the assertions made in this paper, plain and simple. Whining about the limited amount of funding available for research puts the final two nails in the coffin, first it is not an accepted cultural norm worthy of further study, second as noted perhaps spend less time on pseudo science and more effort to design and Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something a valid hypothesis as it might yeild more funding.

Please come on back to earth. Most people still do not understand that gender and biological sex, are not the same things. Most people Adult looking sex Bent of gender when what they technically mean is biological sex.

I understand exactly why trans Harvard stone embers dating chatting lake you forgot something such as yourself would like for the world to focus on gender rather than biological sex. Many trans women are beaten and or killed each year because they made the foolish assumption that the straight guy they were out on a date with, cared more about gender than biological sex.

Gender is of the mind.

A sense of self. It is who you are. Biological sex is what you are male or female. Again, the thing that matters the most, IS biological sex.
