Currently writing a research paper on gender dysphoria.
(Controversy of diagnosis and treatment)

Gender identity is by far the most unnecessarily complex thing I have ever encountered. The exponential increase of 'transgender' individuals in the past decade suggests something disturbing.

Either global warming has led to uterine perturbation (causing the increase), or tumblr exposure causes angst-ridden adolescents and young adults are sexually frustrated and want to stand out.
Problem is, no (credible) sources out there will support the latter.

Firstly look at pollution:
>http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2000/sep/07/wildlife.pollution
> Male fish turning female
The pill and other things have lead to bigger oestrogren pollution.

Secondly look at what the pill does to women:
>http://www.livescience.com/28237-women-on-pill-prefer-less-masculine-men.html
>Women on the Pill Choose Less Manly Men
Women pick more femine looking men.

Feminism - the rise of the single parent family. Basic societal conditioning - to see masculine traits as negative and femine traits as positive.

Porn! What effect has the rise in porn caused? Think about the basic conditioning effect - see a girl get fucked - associate the whole scene (including the penis) with being turned on. People find the penis a turn on and a sexual queue - rise of the shemale porn.

Basically pollution, hormones from the pill, societal conditioning and porn.

That's the reason you are hearing about it.

Transsexuals are so rare that it's only with something like the internet (or certain big cities) that it's even possible to find enough of them to form a subculture.

Haha, you're right. Which is the sad part.
I CANNOT speak out during class. Not because I'm being a bitch, but probably because I'll end up sounding like an arrogant aspie and end up having my tires slashed. There's an overwhelming number of tumblrettes in my sociology course and each discussion is just a circlejerk.

Exactly. Similarly, since 90% of this nonsense is subconscious attention whoring, these people have now found away to get the attention they desperately crave.

This may be somewhat unrelated, but...
According to my psych professor, recent research has shown that exposure to porn reduces sex crime rates.

I don't think its pollution or tumblr exposure changing people's gender. I'd even argue there hasn't been an explosion of transgender individuals - we've remained consistently between .3 and .5% of the population - but that there's been an explosion in awareness. So it looks like there are so many more of us than there actually are.

Any increase in the extremely tiny numbers can easily be charted up to more people knowing about it, and thus knowing what their problems are, and more people choosing to treat their dysphoria with transition, since the treatment options have gotten so unbelievably much better in the last decade.

>>38852973

Also, you're completely ignoring FTMs, who - if we take tumblr as a reasonable showcase of transgender people (which it isn't, but hey, that's the OPs argument) - constitute nearly all of the growth in the transgender population.

.3-.5% meaning diagnosed individuals or 'claimed' transgender. That's my problem, discerning between the two, statistically.

>choosing to treat their dysphoria with transition.

Wouldn't treating G-dysphoria imply working towards a comfortale cisgender state instead of away from it? Or did you mean treatment/transition as in surgical procedures to become transexual, complementing the transgender mindset?

>if we take tumblr as a reasonable showcase of transgender people (which it isn't, but hey, that's the OPs argument)

My argument isn't that tumblr induces transgender(ness), rather that it 'tricks' people into believing something about themselves that (objectively) is not the case.

A common misconception about gender dysphoria is that it begins MUCH more often in children 3-5 years old than it does in adolescents.
(3-5 year old children mostly not knowing the anatomical difference between boys and girls)
That being said, gender dysphoria in young children (3-5) is (in my opinion) much more of a reliable benchmark for diagnosis than adolescents who are at an age where they are making many more individual choices, are socially educated and influenced, and are chemically volatile (puberty).

The misconception is that it begins more in adolescents than young children. (Made a mistake; sue me)

Most people nowadays fake being trans

And those who are trans, about half who complete gender reassignment surgery regret it

Which is why any and all mental/physiological disorders need to be weeded out and treated FIRST, before someone gets an irreversible surgery. I have no problem with actuall trans people but its become a fad now.
>>
>The exponential increase of 'transgender' individuals in the past decade suggests something disturbing

Actually it makes a lot of sense.

Gender roles developed because of the need for survival in pre-industrial society. In a post-industrial society gender roles have no functional purpose for humans as a species. There are 7 billion humans on the planet. We don't need to "survive" anymore. People are free to pursue personal freedoms like choosing your gender and such.

>>38852566
You've got a very broad stroke on canvas, OP. Need to get more specific or maybe give us more examples? Gender dysphoria reaches heavily into culture identity, social identity and actually falls along the lines of personality disorders like dissociative behavior and BPD.

This phenomena in "genderqueerness" is not exactly new, but treads the same patterns of Japanese cultural influence on American society from the mid-90s to early 2000s. During this time, you had large swaths of adolescents rejecting American cultural for an idolized Japanese culture (ironically 4chan is a product of that movement). I see the same thing happening with gender. It's people trying to find community.
>>
>>38854517

>.3-.5% meaning diagnosed individuals or 'claimed' transgender. That's my problem, discerning between the two, statistically.

Claimed. These studies do population surveys and usually measure "feelings of wanting to be the opposite gender".

>Wouldn't treating G-dysphoria imply working towards a comfortale cisgender state instead of away from it?

Trying to be comfortable in your birth gender is, for trans people, not going to happen without serious repression and collateral psychological damage. Trust me, I'm speaking from experience on this one.
The best method of treatment is to make the person comfortable, and that does imply trying to be cis, but the cis state of the opposite gender.

>That being said, gender dysphoria in young children (3-5) is (in my opinion) much more of a reliable benchmark for diagnosis than adolescents who are at an age where they are making many more individual choices, are socially educated and influenced, and are chemically volatile (puberty).

Adolescents are far more likely to be pressured avoiding transition by the rest of the world, even if they are learning about it on tumblr. People on tumblr don't just exist on tumblr, and tumblr is not their sole (or even primary) influence.

I understand you aren't arguing transgender s"isn't real", but that social influences have increased the numbers. And that is a valid argument to make, but you'll need proof the population has increased in the last decade.

A better way to go about this might be a more institutional argument - that the diagnosis for being transgender is becoming too liberal, and combined with social redefining of transpeople in places like tumblr, is diluting the seriousness of the condition. Its far more easily proven, and tackles your concern about transgender people far more adequately than writing a paper saying "I think tumblr is making more people trans".

>implying hypotheses aren't part of the scientific method
>>
>>38855053
research papers are about presenting known information, not portraying "sides" per se. If a topic has well defined positions in its debate, then yes you can write a compare/contrast paper on their similarities and differences. But don't assume there can only be two sides; there are potentially more. Likewise, you could write a paper against mainstream attitudes finding flaws in the current literature. You don't need counter-examples to do this. You could try writing about the lack of efficacy in treatment, alluding that the underlying problem may not be getting proper attention.

Also beware that the sources against mainstream thought on transgenderism are going to be mostly dubious and/or ideological. In a "truly academic" paper you need to avoid these kinds of sources. Think outside the box.

>>38855742
your picture is almost correct. an experiment does not determine whether a hypothesis is true or false; the results will either support or not support the hypothesis.

it's a subtle but significant difference.

You can thank our friend the Eternal Jew for that.

Either that or most human beings are inherently immoral and have forsaken God right down to their genetic code.
