Depends how mentally ill you are.

I'm a ftm transgender,and I typically see trans people who don't know how to dress themselves. I'm not saying I'm the pinnacle of /fa/ trans people, but I do better than most.

I think most trans people are too wrapped up in being victims and making sure people get their pronouns right to be /fa/ tbqh

>>
>>10651925
Most of them don't want to be A woman. They want to be the ideal woman. It's about attention and feeling superior. That's why they all choose special snowflake fanfiction names and wear gobs of makeup. Ironically they say that placing people into gender roles is wrong, but to combat this they pick the most stereotypical ways imaginable to pretend to be a woman.

the whole "man born with a woman's brain thing" seems like a bogus theory to me. I haven't done enough reading to argue this in good faith, but intuitively i don't believe that shit for a second.

i just think masculinity and men's clothes aren't very relateable or desireable for a lot of men. Some men like to wear dresses and play with dolls and express themselves in a more feminine way. Some women like to work out and play cops and robbers and wear suits.

gender roles are a social construct so of course it's natural that you might want to be somewhere further towards the opposite end of the spectrum than is generally socially acceptable. I think that's cool though, and admire anyone who feels this way and sticks to their guns.

it gets weird to me when you talk about wanting to chop off your penis though. At that point it has nothing to do with gender roles at all, you literally want to pretend you're a woman. I definitely need to do more thinking cause i don't really know what i'm talking about, but that strikes me as a very unhealthy desire for a person to have.

it's like if you're 6'4" and you're uncomfortable with how tall you are. Wouldn't it be seriously fucked up if you got your shins removed or something to be shorter? Like i think we're really talking about body dysmorphia here, and i can't take anyone seriously who thinks insanely drastic surgeries like this are a healthy way to deal with body dysmorphia.

Yeah, but see he countered you being a whiny brat by pointing out biology, socialization, brain chemistry, etc... then told you to go to your safe space if you take issue with REALITY... So you rebutted with essentially:
>Nuh uh! YOU'RE A RACIST! GO BACK TO /POL/!!!!

This is the level of discourse you can expect from social marxists. They will happily let you win the argument based on facts and common sense(they simply cant counter it) but end with trying to slander you as a racist or something.
The fact that it actually worse, and in academic settings no less, is pretty fucking depressing.

What I also don't understand is that the same people who demonize gender roles get easily triggered when someone even questions being trangender or transsexual.

Doesn't trans shit perpetuate gender roles even more since you're just trying to look or act like the opposite sex, and to do that you have to dress stereotypically like a woman of vice versa?

I think gender roles are stupid in most cases but I just don't understand this trans shit.

Anime has contributed to the popularity of mtf trans people. Boys grow up, watch sick Japanese cartoons, then decide they want to be just like the girls in their stupid anime shows.

I swear we should have dropped nukes all over Japan, just knocked that country and its culture out
>>
with me being mtf trans I'm not a woman. I'm trying to get there but it's more like a goal for self improvement rather than the common "born trapped in a different body". It's kind of like someone working out to improve their self confidence, or at least that's how it feels. Some trans people don't take it seriously and they pull the victim card to excuse themselves from the hard work of trying to pass, and they become those people who bitch about cis privilege to make themselves feel better. That's what I've noticed at least

no.. transpeople don't want to "pretend" to be their desired sex, they want to be their desired sex. whether or not that is actually possible is a different story

i agree with parts of your post though. i think sexuality/gender is a sliding scale. i fall squarely in the middle - i have nothing in common with my male peers and i never have, but i am straight. i dont feel anything in common with any of those people. i also dont really relate to females. i'm also very much not masculine - i'm beautiful, not handsome. male standards of beauty have made my life a living hell as a result. that sounds absolutely ridiculous but its true.

this shit is probably what I hate about the transrights movement the most. They think that being a woman is all about makeup and dresses and heels, which is basically a man's perspective after watching Legally Blonde and Gem for hours on end. Stupid libfems try to defend this bullshit while also railing against the patriarchy.
>>
>>10652862
Yes, it perpetuates gender roles, because trans people think that

-being a man= muscles, mustaches, football, beer

-being a woman on the inside= liking makeup, heels, dresses, being delicate, long hair

when there's people who live their lives every fucking day without conforming to those things. I think the world would be a much better place for transpeople if we could, as a society, accept men who are non-gender conforming so that they won't feel the need to chop their penis off if they want to wear eyeshadow.

>>
transgendered people just have a body that produces the wrong hormone, which makes their physical appearance wrong for who they are in every other respect.

that's literally all it is.

give them the right hormone, and their body changes to match who they're supposed to be.

people who don't understand this think that your physical appearance defines you. and should always define you. and that you should change your brain/feelings/emotions/soul(?) to match your external self. struggle for a lifetime trying to change who you are inside.

when instead, you can take the correct hormone and be at peace. finally feel whole.

i wish people wouldn't talk about something they don't understand.
>>
>>10655842
I have no problem with transpeople. If a guy wants to put on a dress and lipstick, more power to him. I don't think that people should be victims of violence or social discrimination in the workplace/on the street for what they want to wear and how feminine/masculine they want to act. It's all fine.

BUT what I do have a huge problem with are MtT people constantly bitching and moaning at women to accept them as 100% women, no questions asked, when it comes to scientific research studies, conversations about birth control and healthcare, policy related to surrogacy and childbirth, and a million other things that concern BIOLOGICAL WOMEN every day that they can't have a fucking conversation about without being regarded as transphobic.

I spent a year doing operations management in the public health sector of a third-world country and ended up presenting some information about it at my university. Afterwards, I had a "talking to" by a transwoman who thought that it was problematic when I mentioned that one particular woman I worked. She was afraid of speaking to doctors without her husband around because she was afraid that he would beat the shit out of her in case they changed something in her daughter's medical treatment. If I remember correctly, I said something about how domestic violence is a widespread problem for women in that part of the world. And of course, I had to get verbally berated for not saying "female bodied people" or someshit. And there's a million people out there who have to deal with their reputation being damaged for not wanting to kowtow to transpeople's language policing needs.

I'm fucking tired of this garbage and having to protect their precious feefees. It's narcissistic and it prevents people in Western countries from having real conversations about what's affecting biological women abroad.

>>
>>10655860

>transgendered people just have a body that produces the wrong hormone, which makes their physical appearance wrong for who they are in every other respect.

How do they know that they're producing the wrong hormone? If you ask a transperson how they "know" they're the other gender, they'll probably tick of a list of things like:

-I never liked barbies/I always liked barbies
-I only had male/female friends growing up
-I used to wear my mom's/dad's clothes as a kid

why does any of this indicate that they're "secretly" the opposite gender? There's negligible evidence that there are large regions of the brain that are different between non-hormone receiving MtF and regular men.
>>
>>10655915
The vast majority of trans people just feel wrong. It has nothing to do with socialized bullshit like that, it has to do with body dysphoria.
>>
>>10655929
Most people who are MtF do not get SRS. Studies like this:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3043071/

also indicate a similar suicide rate pre and post op. Not all transgender people have "dysphoria" and people often conflate being transgender with being transsexual. The tumblr brigade constantly bitches about "truscum", or people who believe that you need to have dysphoria to qualify as trans. There are MANY MANY MANY trans people who do not think that dysphoria is necessary to be trans.

>It's a mental illness

This is a position of ignorance. Careful consideration needs to be given when labelling something as pathological - not everything that deviates from a statistical norm is necessarily "bad" or "wrong".

Rather, scientific evidence supports the concept that gender dysphoria emerges due to hormonal disturbances during fetal development, resulting in a brain which does not identify with the sex of its body.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2754583/
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0018506X06001462

Which part of your body do you identify with you, as an entity the most: your gentalia, or your central nervous system? The answer is obvious - you ARE your brain, you merely HAVE genitals.
>>
>>10656709
IQ tests don't assess your ability to memorize and regurgitate at all. which is why people with high IQ's can still be total dumbasses in their every day life, because while they have strong abstract thinking, problem solving, and pattern recognition skills, they don't necessarily have any real world knowledge.

This implies that evolution/nature had an "ideal" state in mind that was "supposed" to happen. It doesn't, because evolution/nature does not have any motive, it is just a natural process.

mental illness: a condition which causes serious disorder in a person's behaviour or thinking.

Having a brain which identifys with a gender that differs from the body it contains is not ideal to anyone suffering from gender dysphoria, but it doesn't mean that their cognitive powers are disordered, or that their behaviour is disordered either. They don't hold delusional beliefs about reality.

Your argument is laughable because evolution's motive is enabling individuals among populations to breed the most.

>Why do you think that is?
I told you in my post. If they honestly think they're a different gender, they're crazy. Facts and reason trump your argument.

They will always have different bone densities respective to sex, they will always have different amounts of muscle fibers respective to sex, they will always have different neurological pathing in the brain respective to their sex, and they will always have their original sex chromosomes.

Mental illness is going against reality because of brain abnormalities. That's what transgenderism is. You can type until your fingers come off, but that will never change the facts I just listed above. They will always be men or women. Always. It's right there. Facts are facts

The rest of your post is worthless rhetoric - baseless assertions and misguided attribution of identity to muscle fiber counts and bone desnity.

>Your argument is laughable because evolution's motive is enabling individuals among populations to breed the most.

Fully accounted for in the first post of this chain.

definition:
natural selection

noun
1.
the process by which forms of life having traits that better enable them to adapt to specific environmental pressures, as predators, changes in climate, or competition for food or mates, will tend to survive and reproduce in greater numbers than others of their kind, thus ensuring the perpetuation of those favorable traits in succeeding generations.

>will tend to survive and reproduce in greater numbers than others of their kind, thus ensuring the perpetuation of those favorable traits in succeeding generations

it's as easily summed up as whatever enables them to breed the most in that population.

want to retract your statement that evolution has a motive yet?

why should I reconsider my opinion?

Different mental abnormalities also take physical presence in the brain and appear as abnormalities in brain structure. Just because trannies have differing brain structures and suffer mental illness as a result, doesn't mean they should be accepted and encouraged.

The best way to treat mental illness is to teach the person to live with it in a healthy normal manner.

You should reconsider your position because you ascribe moral value to statistical normality - there is no nuance in your position. If this train of thought was examined with reference to differences in population genetics (and their associated enormous levels of variance), the consistency of its logic would falter even more considerably.

tl;dr statistical norms do not imply moral value, absolute or otherwise
>>
>>10656956
yes, statistical norms do imply moral value

different cultures and ethics work for different types of people.

If there is a norm in a population, ways of acting and behaving should align to that norm.

There exists such thing as culture clash for when behavior doesn't align to the norm.

>Argumentum ad populum, appeal to tradition: the post

>everyone else does it, you should too

By your logic, if an asian child was born blonde, he should be rejected because it's abnormal -- or that the holocaust was justified because germany held anti-semetic, fascist values

The brain of a transgender person does not identify with the body containing it - because the brain differs in a significant, measurable way. You can label that as pathological - but it does not give you absolute grounds to invalidate their experience, or to view them as lesser beings.
>>
>>10656992
does being blonde affect his mental bearing? no. It's just a physical feature with no links to mental aptitude

>muh holocaust
being jewish isn't a mental illness. being german isn't a mental illness. We're talking about mental illness in relation to social norms and if they should be encouraged or treated. Please stay on topic if you want to actually talk

>The brain of a transgender person does not identify with the body containing it
nor will it ever be in a body where it can 'identify' with. Ever. It's better that they learn to live with it as opposed to mutilate their bodies.

You can label that as pathological - but it does not give you absolute grounds to invalidate their experience, or to view them as lesser beings.

>>10657010
seriously?

can you transplant a human brain that 'identifies' as a female but was born in a male body into a female body?

let me shorten that question. Can you transplant a human brain into another body?

No, you can only put in fake tits, cut off the dick and create a nonfunctional in every way "vagina" and artificially introduce hormones.

You've stated an ideal which would be desirable to those with gender dysphoria, but not necessarily the absolute minimum required for many to identify with their body. Many transgender people do not undergo genital surgery as they don't experience any dysphoria in relation to their genitalia.
>>
>>10657025
Except we are talking about gender dysphoria. OP's picture showed Zoey Tur who has had his penis turned into a fleshy hole. This entire argument is based on that.

And just because most transgenders don't have the surgery (maybe also because it's very costly and a physical burden to recover from) doesn't mean they are a-ok with having their physical appearance as it is.

You seem to be unable to stay on topic, so there's no real use talking with you.

Adios.
