gweilo8888: The My Little Pony Killer: People sure do get upset at the things other people choose to do with their own bodies. There's really no need to get so bent out of shape over something that doesn't affect you in the least anyway. Really.Not sure whom that was in reference to, but I'll bite.Personally, I wasn't getting "bent out of shape", so much as being mildly disgusted by the medical "professionals" that fatten their wallets and help save up for their new Ferrari or the extension on their house by taking advantage of somebody who clearly has deep-rooted identity problems.The job of a medical professional should be to help that person, and I'm sorry, but a bunch of pills and expensive, invasive surgery does not help them in the least. The underlying identity crisis remains, and that person hasn't been helped one bit -- you've just drained their wallet and bank account."Gender changes" (I use quotes because there is really no such thing) are to modern medicine as trepanning and bloodletting were to historical medicine: a complete nonsense that makes no sense on any level. It's the equivalent of buying a house with major structural problems, not touching the house at all, changing the landscaping in the gardens, and then declaring the whole thing to be fixed.And given that the person at the center of it all who's so troubled isn't actually being helped at all -- they will, almost certainly, realize that they are in fact *still* trapped inside the body of a man, and will eventually have to deal with the identity issues they'd tried to hide from -- I find that more than a little bit sickening.

cornbread and the collard greens: wait did someone just use the term "pansexual"...wtf is that?Sorry but these people just are not right in the head, got a few nuts loose
AlgertMan: Cutting your dick off won't fix your mental problems.
WhyteRaven74: gweilo8888: Just. Be. Yourself.that's what transgendered people are doing.
Fecacacophany: I feel the same way about vision correction. People who buy into the whole glasses / contacts / LASIK thing just need to try harder. The glasses aren't anything but a crutch and highlight their otherwise hidden defect from others. They just need more morale boosting to try harder to be normal.
Kaybeck: You're welcome.

gweilo8888: And on that topic, pills and/or surgery don't turn a man with an identity crisis into a woman, or vice versa. They turn a man with an identity crisis into a man with an identity crisis, some alien hormones in his bloodstream, and perhaps a somewhat-butchered body. They're no more changing their gender than they would be changing their species by taking a few hormones and having some chicken wings grafted on over their shoulder blades.If it makes them feel better about themselves, great, but it would probably have been a much better investment of their money to get to the root of their identity crisis and help them deal with being who they really are, rather than help them stick their fingers in their ears, shout "La la la!" and pretend to be something they will never, ever be.
dyhchong: is it just a big fleshy sock
freetomato: She ends up looking exactly like my lost friend from 10th grade, Terry. Terry was very pretty but masculine, and in retrospect, closeted and unhappy. It's been many years....this has kind of blown my mind.I really need to look her/him up and give a hug.
