is transgender a real thing

There are only penis and vagina. Science has almost proven that transgender comes from a chemical miss hap in the womb. I support someone or anyone who decides this is who they are but from a science level is it real or just a mental issue?

Gender is an artificial construct dealing more in identity than genatalia; therefore, there can be as many genders as you can imagine even if there are only two sexes biologically.

Actually, gender is a synonym for biological sex. It’s modern feminists and social justice warriors that are attempting to alter the definition of gender to include personal identities. It will fail because it will not be accepted by majority. The evolution of language requires the agreement of majority to become acceptable.

It was actually during the 1950’s that we started using the word gender instead of sex. The term was originally used to describe articles for nouns, that we know, are not biologically sexed. There are male, female, and neutral nouns. (If you’ve ever taken a foreign language, you’ll know what I’m talking about.) Why did we start using gender instead of sex in our daily lives? The reasons are muddy, confusing, even controversial, but you would be right to say that they mean the same thing.

However, along with sex/gender comes a list of arbitrary social expectations. Pink/Blue, Physical/Emotional, Trucks/Dolls, etc. These binaries change based on societal norms, and pink was considered a “male” color until the 1930’s. When we say things like “ladylike,” or “girly,” you’ll notice we are not talking about biological differences at all. So although gender corresponds to biological sex (or at least it did), it means something else.

Transgender, a term that did not exist until 1969, describes someone who is more comfortable in a social role that isn’t traditionally associated with their biological sex. Here are some facts that might lead to understanding:

  1. Gender is a synonym for biological sex. However, the transgender community uses it to describe social identity.
  2. Anthropologists (people scientists, basically) noticed this, and separated the terms to clear up the confusion. Academically, gender and sex are no longer equivalent terms.
  3. We still use these terms as if they were equivalent, and tbh, that’s what really matters. Although the modern use of gender is becoming more popular, this shouldn’t bother you. It is only a word. Outside of a social context, it really doesn’t mean anything at all.

“There are male, female, and neutral nouns. (If you’ve ever taken a foreign language, you’ll know what I’m talking about.)” Other languages are irrelevant, in English it means biological sex. This is how it has always been used before modern feminists and millennials started warping it’s definition for their own political purposes.

 

“These binaries change based on societal norms, and pink was considered a “male” color until the 1930’s.” Colors maybe, but it’s scientifically observable that days old newborns have different preferences based on gender. Tests show that even before being introduced to any societal norms that baby girls prefer to look at faces while baby boys prefer specific types of objects.

 

“When we say things like “ladylike,” or “girly,” you’ll notice we are not talking about biological differences at all.” No, we are talking about biological differences. Males and females have different personality traits linked directly to their biological differences. The only exceptions are due to a biological mistake in their development or environmental stimuli during development.

 

“So although gender corresponds to biological sex (or at least it did), it means something else.” No, it only means biological sex. Only feminists and SJWs use it differently. The rest of the world does not accept the definition given by feminists and SJWs.

 

“Transgender, a term that did not exist until 1969, describes someone who is more comfortable in a social role that isn’t traditionally associated with their biological sex.” No, transgender is a term referring to someone in the process of changing their sex.

 

“Gender is a synonym for biological sex. However, the transgender community uses it to describe social identity.” The vast majority does not care how the transgender community uses it. It requires the acceptance of majority for language to evolve.

 

“Anthropologists (people scientists, basically) noticed this, and separated the terms to clear up the confusion.” No, feminists and SJWs did that. Science does not agree with feminists and SJWs on this.

 

“Academically, gender and sex are no longer equivalent terms.” Only in gender studies class. In science, they are synonyms.

 

“Although the modern use of gender is becoming more popular” No, it isn’t. Only feminists use the terms differently and the percentage of the population that is feminist is decreasing. Feminists are slowly becoming more outnumbered according to statistics.

 

“It is only a word.” Words have meanings which are specifically for the purpose of conveying thoughts. When you use them incorrectly, you warp the message being conveyed.

Transgender is a real thing when being developed in your mother’s stomach everyone male or female start with a x chromosome that’s why men have nipples. women have xx as men have xy as there chromosome make up. through the process of development you may not gain a y chromosome until later in the pregnancy which would make the male feel as if he is a she. but there is NO such thing that makes someone genderfluid or make the identify as a animal, toaster, or both. so there is only two genders Male and Female you pick the one you feel and that’s the end of that.

The chromosomes are set before the brain develops personality. Gender dysphoria is caused by either the brain not developing as the chromosomes indicate or by the environment after birth.

If he means BIOLOGICAL SEX  then you need to get it through your thick skull that does not mean what you feel on the inside in the real world no one cares how “you feel on the inside” Either you have a penis (male) or a vagina (female) you can be gay (I won’t judge but it does not change your actual gender no changing it unless you actually get a surgery

I also need a clarification, do people become trans just because they feel like it? Are there legal processes ‘n’ shit like that

on April 9, 2018

Yes! A trans person does not need a sex-change operation to be transgender. Some trans people feel this is a necessary step in building their identity, and others do not.

There is a lot of confusion about the meaning of the term gender. In academia (and LGBT vernacular) gender is something different than sex.

When a trans person shares their gender with you, this does not mean they are unaware of their birth (or current) sex. However, they prefer to be treated the same way you’d treat a cis person of  that gender.

What this means depends on the individual, but you can start by respecting their pronouns, now that you know what they mean when they use them. I hope this clears things up a little bit.

“In academia (and LGBT vernacular) gender is something different than sex.” We do not care how the LGBT uses it. We prefer to use it correctly. And the only academia that uses it differently is gender studies or classes taught by a feminist or SJW. 

 

“However, they prefer to be treated the same way you’d treat a cis person of  that gender.” We do not care what they prefer. They prefer something that is not actual reality, we prefer reality.

 

“you can start by respecting their pronouns” We respect actual reality before pronouns or fantasies.

Mental problems and anything to do with chemicals in the body is scientific. To say that transgender isn’t scientifically real, when you’ve literally just described it as a “chemical mishap” is just stupid.
