Coelacanth: We are becoming a John Varley novel.


I've never met a man who so hated his own penis like that guy.

Gosling: Yeah. There are actually some people out there who are both gay and transgender at the same time. As in, you were born a man, you feel you're supposed to be a woman, and yet you're still attracted to women.


If I remember from my late night Loveline listening a few years back Dr. Drew often said that people who undergo sex change operations do so to pursue relationships with the same sex they changed to more than the opposite. Or gender. I forget which one I'm supposed to say in which case.

GhostFish: I'm amazed at the people in here saying they hope these kids don't procreate. Can't have the freaks and weirdos spreading their genes, right?

I've got some bad news for you. You are descended from a very long line of freaks and weirdos. It's called mutation. You owe everything to it, and sometimes it produces surprising results from unlikely sources. You don't have the omniscience to see all ends. You have no idea how helpful or hurtful their genes could be. Your arrogance on the other hand is extremely harmful.


So let me get this straight...They are mutants? I have to live out my life as a simple male hetero and they get to be X-men.

Seems unfair.

Those who tell us that we should just accept our birth gender don't understand that they're asking us to kill ourselves. We'd rather be dead than have to live as the sex we were born. The mental pain from feeling that you're the opposite gender, known as gender dysphoria, is extremely intense and often leads to suicide.

I'm still living as male because I still look male. From this, I have suicidal thoughts several times per week from gender dysphoria. I sleep all day on weekends because the dream world is so much less painful than the real world, and keeps me from crying.

My life is a waste.

I don't have gender i.d. issues but I know what you're talking about with the whole sleeping is better than being awake.

Obvious follow-up question is, what are you going to do about it? Is it an issue with having the funds to have the necessary procedures to get you in your right skin?

No, it's an issue with the current limit of medical technology. I don't think that doctors can do anything to help me look female, since my body type is so strongly masculine. I can afford surgeries, but they wouldn't do any good. I'm better off dead.

I have a close family member that is now post-op like 20 years and even before she transitioned she was relatively well adjusted and happy, albiet it involved alot of therapy and acceptance by some close friends and family.

The frequency and severity of the feelings you are experiencing makes me wonder if you may have an underlying condition, such as chronic depression. If you haven't sought therapy, then you should do so. If you are currently seeing a therapist, then you should definately explore this with them.

brobinson2001: Not trolling, but thank Nature they figured this out before they reproduced. Yeah, it's heartwarming on an emotional level, but from a purely genetic standpoint, I'm glad they both got snipped before spreading this crap into the general gene pool, and weakening the entire species.

However it is that you want to be, and whoever it is that you are attracted to - it is out there. Don't stop looking. There are more things in heaven and earth, Myria, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

As cute and sappy as this is, the following line at the bottom of the article somewhat spoils it:


Sorry we are unable to accept comments for legal reasons.


Nice to know that the Daily Mail has such faith in its own readership that the comments were switched off to prevent hate speech aimed at a 16 and 18 year old in love with each other.

Dear Religious Wimps,

Baby Jesus is crying because this shiat is freaking adorable. It's like being surrounded by hellhound puppies who only breath fire when they burp.

Adult Jesus is weeping because 2000 years later you judgmental motherfarkers are still quicker to violence than peace, so his whole 33 year vacation from running the universe was an utter waste of time.

Consistent use of estrogen can make big changes. I won't pretend I know exactly what you're dealing with, but transitioning m/f people have all been down that road. You'd have a lot of medical and trans community social support.

You're unhappy with the way you look and are having suicidal thoughts. For the time being, instead of thinking about a sex change, maybe you should get therapy to help yourself come to terms with your body and appearance as it is now. You shouldnt be having suicidal thoughts and you should be able. to function. After all, many people have disabilities that affect their appearance or gender identity but are able to function.

So, in other words, they wasted alot of money on surgery.

How is this cute and adorable? These poor kids underwent surgery to 'become' something they are not. They were bullied and felt out of place and felt the only way out was to change there gender. It's such a weird thing to do. They may even have problems later in life .... so many risks involved all because of sex. Sex is not for fun. It is to make more human babies. Be happy with who you are. These urges are nothing more than animal instincts. If you can't control your animal instincts you are not very evolved. You need to recognise the fact that being gay is abnormal and if it was normal then everyone would be gay and no humans would have made it this far. We would never have stepped foot on the moon because humans would be extinct.

rockforever: Two questions.

1. Is this gay or not?

2. Which one do I fap too?


1. Depends on where they are in the trans.

2. 1 is 16 1 is 18. Do the math.

phartman: I have transgender on my team working as a data analyst. A few months before he became she, he was constantly asking the women about their breasts and in general, being really really weird. The HR people got involved and he was three seconds from being fired for sexual harassment, until he blurted out that he was considering a sex change and 'just wanted advice', and his wife wouldn't give it. Suddenly all was forgiven and he was allowed to continue what every else found rather creepy. This is just wrong and not from a 'God will punish' standpoint but from an equality standpoint. Any normal guy just admiring a female employee's boobs would be vilified, but this guy was not. He later became she and insisted on using the lady's room, which further weirded everyone out. I guess my point is that tolerance can some times be a bit one-sided. If I were in his high-heels, I think I would have quit my job and simply started again elsewhere instead of putting fellow employees under pressure. FWIW.


she could have found other people to ask besides coworkers. i mean, she could have easily found a good support group elsewhere, thanks to the intarwebs.

using the women's bathroom though? shouldn't be a problem for anybody.

Myria, see if you can contact Joelle Ruby Ryan (PhD). We were in grad school together. She's scarred, but so strong. Google around -- last I heard she was teaching at U of NH.

Honest question:

Is the dude's new "equipment" operational? Do they install one of those Reebok Pump kind of things? Where do they get the new appendage from?

The mechanics behind the new equipment on both sides is intriguing in a medical science kind of way.

Darth_Lukecash: Yeah...but... Okay I'm really confused.

So transgender really means you think you're born the wrong sex... But how do you know that you're not just gay?

I mean its great they found eachother...but wouldn't they just feel that way anyhow being their own sex?


It's the only delusion supported by the medical community. If you think that you're Napoleon, they lock you in a rubber room, but if you think you're the opposite sex, they encourage you to run with it, and anybody who points out that it's just a delusion is ridiculed and labeled "hater" or "phobic." It's the modern version of "The Emperor's New Clothes."

I understand that the surgery to add boy parts is pretty gnarly (not in a good way) but doesn't this technically make them a lesbian couple?

Stupid, doesn't think things through or poor reading comprehension? Help me out here.


Ignorant. You know how you can tell? Because other people answered his question and he thanked them.

Not understanding transgender folks doesn't make someone stupid or mean. Many of us have not (to our knowledge) met someone who is, much less discussed their deepest feelings. That doesn't mean we don't like them or are going to do the whole "this is an abomination" thing - it simply means that we don't understand. So please don't insult someone who asks a question to learn more about the people they share the world with.
 
2012-11-11 09:20:27 AM  
I guess this means that they aren't gay?
