It's very rare for someone to lie about it. It's a matter of safety for us. That's a great way to get attacked or killed
Yes, and it's unfortunate that this is still a thing. I bet in a decade or even three decades, this won't even be an issue anymore as the old people pass away and quit spreading bigotry to the children.
there's nothing wrong with religion. I'm not going to force my beliefs on to you and I'm not going to judge you for your decisions. I'll see your value as a person and ask that you don't laugh at me for my guiding principles. you don't have to agree with my justifications but all I ask is for polite respect
Religion calls me an abomination. please excuse me if I'm less than cordial towards it
I'm not religious either, but if somebody else is than I don't see it as my place to question their motivations (as long as they're not actively persecuting others).I don't have faith, but I can understand why it really matters to others.
"I'm a believer that God created our bodies in to glorify Him and while we can choose who to love, we aren't supposed to pick our gender"I never picked my gender. I was born with the wrong body. when you say stuff like this, you're telling me that who I am as a person is an affront to your god. Think about that from the receiving perspective
"I was born with the wrong body"^^ What does this mean, exactly?I'm curious, because... a lot of people's stated reasons for wanting to "transition" mostly boil down to a combination of 1/ intense sexual fetishes and 2/ wanting to wear "sexy" clothes.So, I'm hoping you had, well, better reasons?
I have never heard from another trans woman who transitioned because of sexual fetish or desire to wear sexy clothes. most trans people suffer from gender dysphoria, a strong feeling that you don't match the gender of your body essentially. I've been acutely aware that my body did not match since I was 6 years old. nothing sexual whatsoever about it. I'm very active in the trans community and this is the case for most people. Some may realize later in life... but I've never come across someone who transitioned for sexual fetish or to wear the clothes, nor have I heard of doctors that would approve of treating them.it's more likely that these people are crossdressers, which are entirely unrelated
"I've been acutely aware that my body did not match since..."^^ What are some CONCRETE examples of this "mismatch"?
I'm asking about YOUR experiences, not about the results of random studies.What does "being a woman" mean, to you?And what felt "wrong" about being male?
that's something that's very difficult to put to words. how do you know you're the right gender.. that you're straight, or gay... how does one describe that awareness? there's really no analogue I can present to you, and frankly you're treading into very personal territory. Transitioning wasn't a decision I rushed into by any means. I spent the majority of my life trying to live male, but it always felt like I was pretending. like wearing a man costume. This isn't something I would wish upon anyone. I didn't chose it. I didn't want it. I tried to end my life because of it 3 times when I was a teenager. That's as far as I'm willing to explain. There's a heavy emotional burden that's carried with this.

How 'gay' are you talking about? Hugging or kissing? Big diff
@hahahmm hahaha no kissing.bro hugs. gay bro acts to define the moment in comedic humor. loving the shit out of each other. hmm... come to think of it, an example would be Rogen and Franco.
@hahahmm precisely. not actual gay shit.
my wife enjoys it plenty ;)
Well then you should be happy and don't need validation here
Besides, they don't even look like real women.
