I think Trans-sexual's and Asexual's would have a mental disorder scientifically. Now this doesn't make them less of a person. But sexual orientation can be explained by hormone receptors and hormones they give off or are attracted to. But since being trans doesn't affect your sexual preference it means that it can't be that. It can't be something in your body either because then you would be born as the gender you identify as. So the only explanation is an irregularity in the brain. Agree? Disagree? Thoughts? Plz look at this with an open mind.
Trans isn't a sexuality, it's caused by hormones before birth causing your brain to be more like the opposite sex, basically the brain is feminized but the body is not, obviously it's the opposite for ftms.
As for asexuality, I think it can be explained by orientation not being a switch that can be set to liking men OR liking women, but rather seperate on/off switches for attraction to each gender; attraction to men and attraction to women are seperate and independent from each other. So if you're hetero or homo you have just one switch on, if you're bi you have both on, if you're ace you have both off.
Very insightful thread, OP
I'm glad you made it. It's a necessary thread that needed to be made and hasn't been made before. If I didn't read your blogpost I wouldn't be able to form my own opinion or experience your opinion in any other form.
Thank you OP, I'm glad you're contributing to the quality of the board.

False. There is currently no evidence of human pheromones. Homosexuality is as much a mental illness as transgenderism, it's just that hurt feelings and leftism had the diagnosis removed from use.
Lol. Transexuality does have a secuality involved. For instance, trans-lesbiams usually begin with erotic crossdressing and picturing themselves as women in sexual scenarios. You won't be trans while thinking of yourself as a muscular male who likes to dominate little girls. In short, people inderestimate the power that our sexuality has over how we present ourselves. It's natures way of showing yourself to potential partners.
Trans itself isn't a sexuality. Sexuality is about WHO you're attracted to. And there exist trans people who are straight, gay, bi, and ace, plus all the meme orientations. Clearly sexuality and gender identity are two distinct concepts, even if they are related.
What I'm saying is that for one to think of themselves as a man or a woman, they must first be a man or woman in their sexual fantasies. This is why you see many transexuals who start out as "just crossdressers" but realize eventually that they're trans. Same with many Ftms who see themselves as men with a big dick. If who you are in your fantasies and who you are in real life differ, that in otsf creates an incongruence.
Sure, but again what I'm saying is that a gay man who sees himself as a woman in sexual fantasy, is more likely to go on to identify as a woman after some time, vice versa with lesbians. This isn't to say that all gay men and women see themselves this way, but it wouldn't make sense otherwise.
>What I'm saying is that for one to think of themselves as a man or a woman, they must first be a man or woman in their sexual fantasies.
I think it's more the opposite, they view themselves as a woman in their sexual fantasies BECAUSE they're not really comfortable with the physical sex of their body.
I don't think there's a real way to argue this, but I do know that there exists a fetish towards seeing one's self as an amputee, and as time goes on the person's feelings of not being in the right body grows to unbearable proportions. To the point where the person will end up self-inflicting wounds upon their body in attempts to receive a forced amputation. For your statement to be true, it must also be true that these people arent comfortable with all of their limbs, before discovering their sexual nature.
Not only that, but we maybe know 0.0000000000000000001% of how it works. The only explanatation that makes sense is the early childhood explanation, though that's not to say that someone could be born with a pre-disposition towards certain sexual orientations, etc.
