Why do people support transgenders so much?

This is a problem in America, it's growing and growing. Why do people support transgenders? I have a relatively high I. q. 115-130ish could be higher though I believe. I'm very open and understand a lot of things. I just don't understand transgenders, I can see cross dressers but come on changing your gender? Whenever I try to debate people their main argument is "That's there opinion, everyone has a different opinion. That's what makes America America." I'm sorry this line is wrong on so many levels. You can't have an opinion on your gender, you're born with it. There's some things in life for can't have an opinion on. Your gender is one of them. Anything is something that can be proven wrong. An opinion has multiple sides to it not just one. I hate ignorant people.

  • I'm very open-minded but I just think I there's something mentally wrong with someone that wants to change their sex (even though you can't). I think it's due to gender norms and pressure to be a certain way that's confusing to people at an early age.

      Yes! People tell me I'm not open minded because I don't like transgender people. Yes because since I don't like people with mental disorders I'm an ignorant close minded idiot. Lol today's America is soft and not how it used to be.

  • I would argue transgenderism is a mental disorder based on genetics and the womb. (So basically something happens in the womb and influences transgenderism to take place. The "something" is still unknown.)

    The psychology textbooks also will claim that there are two things to consider as far as gender identification. There is biological gender and sexual identification. Biological is the one you can't change-- it's based on chromosomes and DNA. You are right in this matter-- one can't change that. It doesn't matter whether or not you get surgery. Sexual identification is based on mental feelings. I. e. One feels like a man but is a woman.

    As far as mental disorders go, however, I think transgenderism is relatively tame. Likewise, trying to force someone to "snap out of it" or whatever is wrought with high levels of suicide and emotional distress. Gender identification, from what evidence has been gathered so far, is not a learned function. It's biological.
    Check out David Reimer ("Dr. Money and The Boy With No Penis") https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Reimer
    From that, purposefully forcing their biological gender on them as a society has a good chance of being responded to with increased suicide rates.

    I think that's the underlying reason why society encourages em. It's similar to reasons why one is accepting of homosexuality. The reasons to discourage transgenderism (i. e. a general sense of tradition, what makes sense in our heads) are outweighed by the reasons to accept transgenderism (i. e. high suicide rates otherwise, they aren't particularly harming anyone else)

    Now, while I encourage acceptance of transgenderism, supporting transgenderism I believe is going too far. (Supporting as in vaguely encouraging transgenderism to take place. Like the whole Jenner incident where she was regarded as some sort of heroic, brave symbol.)

    Encouraging is likely to met with false cases-- people who identify as transgender but are really not. (Like I heard Bruce/Cait Jenner is regretting his/her transition, but he/she can't go back to what was once there.) If people delude themselves, they are met with high rates of suicide. The numbers are especially high if they go through irrevocable surgery for it... That's also why they often have intense screening before people go through surgery.

    In any case, I can understand your sentiment, but would disagree for a good portion.

  • Yes, everyone is born with a gender. However, there are some whose physical gender doesn't match the gender they feel like they have on the inside.

    Changing genders allows the person to fulfill their life being who they truly are, and spend the rest of their lives pretending. For some, it actually allows them to be happy.

    I don't have a problem with any transgender people.

      Here let me give you an example of what you're trying to say: Let's say a guy was born and when he's an adult he has a 5 inch penis. He wants an 8 inch penis but he was born with a 5 inch one. He can either A) Be a normal person and except the fact his penis is only 5 inches, or B) be like a transgender, and say "My opinion is my penis is 8 inches." Now he could either choose option A like almost EVERY person that is living and has ever lived or choose option B, get encouraged to share an "opinion" that makes absolutely no sense. Do you understand now that you can't choose your sex, gender, family, life to some extent. It's what and how life is and always has and will be.

      No my example is not irrelevant to what you're saying, it's actually spot on. You're too biased to see because of how stupid my example is, it's more stupid with transgender. Say he's going through life and he's unhappy because of his 5 inch penis, and the only thing that would make him happy would be to have an 8 inch. He's gone through his whole life feeling like his lenis wasn't his because it's so small. It's the same stupid example that means that same as transgenders. It's very dumb to encourage that behavior.

    • 3mo

      Being a bit sad about having a slightly smaller sized penis is not comparable to emotions someone has thinking that they should belong to the opposite gender. Growing up thinking that somehow you are different. Feeling isolated, lonely, confused and worried. The extremely high suicide rates even prove this. Thousands attempt to take their lives each year as a result of not feeling like they can be themselves. Or through getting bullied to such an extent, they no longer feel like it's worth living. And saying to everyone that it's 'wrong' and is something that shouldn't be encouraged is extremely sad and very worrying indeed.

  • So your disgusting ass says you have an IQ of "115-130" but you don't understand being transgender? I don't think anyone that hasn't gone through it will understand it. Hell, I never will, but it doesn't disregard from the fact that it must be some sort of actual thing. Gender isn't something you're born with, your box with a sex. Gender is how you feel on the inside. You can say you're male brained, or female brained, your mind is a mind. We're human, even animals are smart, doesn't mean we think like them. Everyone has their own identity, you should learn how to accept it.

  • Gender Dysphoria is a real thing, but not easy to get rid of tho.
    It's better to be happy to be yourself, than to be sad and conform to society's standards. 'Pretending' that you don't have it, can lead to depression and suicide.
    Not everyone supports it, but personally I don't have a problem with transgenders.

      Maybe it is personality affecting me. Why musy you assume? You just look like an ass. Transgenderism is a mental disorder. Surgery hasn’t been a solution with the suicide rate 20 times that of others. The experts say 70-80 percent of the children who experience gender confusion will lose that feeling as they mature. It deserves understanding and treatment – but is NOT normal.

      Hair color is only an opinion because it's something that can be dyed, such as clothes. Eye color cannot be changed unless you go through a very dumb eye surgery that could easily cause you to go blind. That's not natural. Let's say a guy was born and when he's an adult he has a 5 inch penis. He wants an 8 inch penis but he was born with a 5 inch one. He can either A) Be a normal person and except the fact his penis is only 5 inches, or B) be like a transgender, and say "My opinion is my penis is 8 inches."

      Color contacts is entirely different than changing your eye color. In whose right mind is putting contacts in that are only made to be in for 18ish hours at a time that same as permanently getting your body changed. Just because "something can be done through modern medicine" doesn't give someone the right to actually do it. We can do almost anything with modern technology. Look at it this was I CAN rob a store, it would be stupid to do so, just as well as being a transgender. It's through* by the way, any good points to why you encourage transgenders? Or are you gonna keep posting irrelevant ones that mean nothing, lol.

    • 3mo

      Nothing anyone says will change your opinion on the whole transgender thing.

      It's just something both you and I will never understand no matter how much research we do on the topic. Just because you don't like something doesn't mean it is going to stop happening. After this question closes out people are still going to have the surgery. It's the world we leave in now.

  • Assuming you are a man look at it this way, you are standing in front of a mirror looking at your body. You have all the female parts, all your life you were told you were female. But something doesn't feel right. Whenever you look in the mirror you feel as if you're looking at someone elses body. Your boobs aren't yours and neither is your vagina, because inside you are a man. On the inside you hate everything about your body and the way people view you. Being referred to as "Ms" just doesn't sound right. You want to be a "Mr." Think about spending every day hating the body that you are in, hating the life you are living, hating yourself because you were born in the wrong body. Think about all the negative attention from other people when you tell them this. Think about wanting to kill yourself because you are a man living in a woman's body. You don't have to understand it, but you should at least respect it. Not every transgender person relates their outside appearance to their genitals, a woman can live the life of a man without ever getting surgery. It does so much more deep than "I want the opposite genders body parts." If it really bothers you that much then do some further research online

  • I just look at gender like I look at every other choice in a person's life. If gender were a choice why would a person CHOOSE to live a life of persecution, alienation, and discrimination? Well the short answer is humans wouldn't we are like electricity, we choose the path of least resistance. So I doubt people (transgender, gay, etc.) would choose to live a life where they are going to run into many problems. Don't think they choose it. Don't force your lifestyles in my face, because I don't do it to you. Just respect everyone, and you'll be a lot happier.

  • Because the fringe left went shopping to find a new civil rights movement they could try to fight. So they found transgenders, and put them up on the pedestal and gave them the gold medal in their oppression olympics. (even though they make up 0.3% of the population).

    Honestly though, most children who think they're transgendered are going through a confused phase in their life that they eventually grow out of, and many of them actually grow up to be normal straight or gay people. Some who go through the hormone treatement might feel better off afterward, but many who do it wind up regretting it and commit suicide. The way society glorifies body transitioning and encourages young people to do it is disgusting. It isn't for everybody.

  • Technically, "gender" is sexism and what you're born with is your "sex". So you're not born with a gender, it's forced on you with peer pressure. For example, as a male, I'm not allowed to wear skirts because I'd be beaten up on the streets. But this is an arbitrary limitation enforced through peer pressure based on my sex. So wanting to circumvent the strict enforcement of gender makes sense.

    Having your genitalia "reshaped" and mutilated is absurd and insane, though.

It is just that the media way over covers it. 27 states actually voted in a constitutional amendment to bad gay marriage too by popular vote of over 2/3 in each state, but the Supreme Court overturned it. It is a small number that is for that stuff, but some in the government, and many in the media make it seem like it is much more supported than it actually is.

No other form of life on this planet seeks to screw his fellow person like a human being. The Is that group have too much support is the same question against the free slaves after the civil war and by the Nazis against the Jews. The Soviet Union used that against any people who opposed their doctrines.
