Because People in power are Stupid: How does he know that he's transgendered?


Easy- so easy, in fact, anyone sitting at their computer can do it RIGHT NOW!

First, ask yourself:  Am I (a) male or (b) female?  Hold that answer in your head.

Now here is where it gets tricky- open your pants or lift your dress, and check your genitalia.  Do you have (a) a penis or (b) a vagina?  Look closely and make sure you're right.  Hold that answer in your head.

Now, compare your answers to these two questions.  Did you answer both with (a) or both with (b)?  Congratulations, you are a part of that mighty fraternity/sorority of cisgendered people that has existed since the dawn of the ages!

But what if your answers differ?  Well that's just fine too- you're awesomely transgendered!  While your fraternity or sorority might not be as massive, they are there to welcome you with open arms for strength and solidarity.  And while organized transperson support groups may be a relatively new thing, know that the condition of your being has been around just as long as being cis.

But remember that no matter what your answer is, there are those of us out there who love, cherish, and accept you without condition, for your genitals are far less important to us than your hearts.

The article says that this person just figured it out this year. Now I'm a pretty open minded guy, but I don't think you should call yourself trans if you haven't even started reassignment therapy. I got the impression that this person was going to dress like a woman for prom, but still present as a man during school. If that's the case, then that would mean he's a drag queen, not that she's transgender.


Newsflash for you: Not all transgendered people WANT to change their bodies, they just don't feel "right" in them. For example, I'm a female body that wants to be a hermaphrodite. You really think there's a psychologist that would write me off for reassignment surgery or hormones? Not that I know of. Plus, transititioning would mean losing my relationship with my fiancé, and that's not something I'm willing to sacrifice. I'm perfectly happy with the parts I have, will never be totally happy with my body, but, eh, whatever, I can deal with it. I don't need perfection. I express my gender in other ways, through my appearance and behaviour (and again, fortunately my fiancé is supportive; my community, not so much).

Try stepping outside your little box of experience and realize that different people are. . . different! I didn't figure out I was bi until I was 17 (by contrast, my parents knew when I was 11), and realizing I was "transgendered" didn't come until 26 or so. I always knew I was different, and had a male alter ego as a child, but didn't adopt the label until I felt comfortable with it. Bisexuality was a lot easier to come to terms with than my gender.

It's like having a disease all your life, but not knowing what it's called until you're an adult. (Not saying LGBTQRSTUV is a disease, just noting the similarity in perspective) You've always known something was off, you just couldn't put a name to it.

Pretty much.  it's a sort of inverse Pascal's Wager.  If she's really transgendered, then she should be allowed to wear what she wants as befits her gender and self-image.  If, OTOH, this is really a dude attention-whoring for his buds in third-period Calculus, then, well, ignoring an AW is usually the right thing to do and usually takes the wind out of his sails.  There's no way the school can lose by saying "Fine, wear what you want."

By not allowing this person to wear a dress, they're either calling attention to themselves as transphobic bigots, or giving an AW what he wants.

FWIW, I don't think garments like dresses and skirts should be marked as being "women only" either.  I've worn skirts.  They're comfy.  I'd wear one in public if not for the fact that I'd be  being an attention whoremaking a political statement about gender by doing so, in addition to wearing a garment that I find comfortable, attractive, and shows off my assets.  (I have great legs.)


I don't even care about the attention whore angle. Why should anyone be disallowed from wearing a dress? Stopping men/transpeople/whoever from wearing dresses, skirts or traditionally feminine clothing is just as stupid as stopping women from wearing pants was back in the day. Saying people born with penises must wear pants to the prom is as dumb as saying people born with a vagina must wear dresses, which, if I recall, some schools care about too. Either way, it's just dumb. Why do we need to care as a society about making rules to enforce gender norms through clothing?

/Gender is Physical, not Psychological
//I'm not sure if I'm Trolling

You're not trolling, just ignorant.  People a hell of a lot smarter than you are have confirmed that there is a psychological component to gender.


You're both off.

Gender is psychological and social, how you "feel" and how people treat you (or how you want them too). In this case the applicable terms are masculine and feminine: just this year this dude decided he was feminine That's fine with me, the more femme boys the better.

What you both are probably thinking of is SEX, not gender: usually a person is either clearly male (like this dude) or clearly female, though some people because of hormonal problems in utero have genitalia that are not so easy to describe as male or female.

Gender and sex are two different things.

Society usually expects people with male genitalia to be gendered as masculine and those with female genitalia to be feminine but this ain't necessarily the case. I myself have bween back & forth between butch & femme a few times, but I have always been indispitably male: if my cock & balls don't persuade you you're welcome to inspect my chromosomes. And yes, "crossdressing" and calling yourself any damn name you please is a basic human right.

Some people don't feel the need to be "differently gendered" and that's fine too: boys shouldn't be forced to wear pink if they don't to either. The point is freedom, not choosing or feeling one way or the other.

OTOH "transsexualism" is an social-political-medical identity that people who feel they are "nonstandardly gendered" are hoodwinked into. This saves Society from having to admit there there are more than two genders and that their "sex-role" expectations are bullshiat, instead imposing on the individual the "need" to "fix" himself. Society can say "See? If you play with dolls and like pink you're not really male and should have your boy bits cut off!" And "helping professionals," especially greedy surgeons, are more than happy to play along.


And by the way, sex and/or gender are not necessarily correlated with sexual preference either: e.g., you can be a drag queen and not desire men at all. I myself used to love to "gender-bend," to shave my legs & wear makeup while I made out with chicks. (Some chicks dig that, y'know.)

They try a similar scam on "tomboys," though women -- perhaps because Society still thinks they matter less than men -- are allowed to wear pants and hammer nails without necessarily having to "discover" they're Lesbian let alone "transmen." It might also be that women in American culture are stronger, smarter and less gullible than men, that they're simply harder to hoodwink into having themselves mutilated to reinforce Society's "sex-role" expectations; perhaps also femininism has helped women be strong in a way that men are not.

Maybe we men need our own liberation movement -- let's call it masculinism for now -- so we can tell Society to back off, that Society is just going to have to get used to men who wear dresses etc. The key to this is a proper attitude: "You have no right to force me to fit your expectations, and I'll give up my cock & balls when you chop them off my cold dead body."
 Society is still scared half to death of feminine men. Perhaps men with compassion and guts should "cross-dress" occasionally, especially for protests, regardless of how we "feel inside" or who we desire sexually, to show support for our femme brothers in their ongoing struggle to be accepted as they are in the bodies they were born with.


"Stand up for human rights: lift your skirt and show your balls!"

Make Society stop castrating men because they're not "normal."

Today I went to McDonalds with my genderqueer non-binary friend. I had a Big Mac, strawberry milkshake and fries and xi had a salad and a water because xi is watching xir weight. We were sitting eating and shooting the shiat and we overheard a little kid talking to his/her brother/sister (sorry I don't know these kids' gender identities - their mom called them boys but you can never be too sure, and considering the cissexist bullshiat that was about to come out of this woman's mouth, i wouldn't be surprised if they were girls)
Kid B (the younger one) says to Kid A, "you're a lesbian!" and quick as a flash, their mother says, "Boys can't be lesbians, eat your hamburger."
I MEAN WHAT THE fark?! This is so problematic! I almost jumped over the table and punched that biatch in the ear. I mean SO MANY THINGS WRONG with what she said to the poor kid. Boys CAN be lesbians if they identify as lesbians. I have a number of cis male lesbian friends. She was erasing their entire lived experiences with such a small statement. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. The kid was like five years old. How does she know that the kid wouldn't grow up to identify as a lesbian! Scumbags like this are why I firmly believe cis scum biatches should keep their legs closed and quit breeding. fark the cis hetero patriarchy!


I hope you are trolling.  Men have penises.  Women have vaginas.  You can play house and make up funny new words to make your friends feel all grown up and accepted if you want.. but it's weird.  It's not genetically sound, and its an abomination.

If we start accepting applications to change reality from what it has been, where do we stop?  Is pedophilia just a way of life that isn't accepted yet?  Is farking animals okay, and we are just behind the curve on that?  What about trees?  They have some very attractive knots in them.. I bet my junk would fit.

Man + Woman = baby.  All the other shiat is just us genetically, historically normal folk feeling guilty and letting you weirdos play along.  If you don't know what gender you are, and aren't interested in SACRIFICING to create a family, like the 50 generations before you, than you don't belong on this planet.  Lucky for you, your 50+ grandfathers, gay or not, knew they had to penetrate some vagina so you could have the privilege of opting out of life.  grow up.  man up.

Capo Del Bandito: I'd say that a professional would be better at making that statement than a person.


Probably, as there are many psychologists out there who specialize in helping transpeople figure themselves out.  But you don't just walk into their office and sit down and they look you over and say, "Nope, faking it." or "Probably just a paraphilia because of your shiatty wig."  No, they talk with you.  They ask you questions.  And the answer that is most influential to the headshrinker is the one that comes after the question, "Who are you?"

Capo Del Bandito: Would you trust a person's self diagnosis of an ailment?


You mean do I go around asking people to violate HIPAA and fork over their medical paperwork to prove any condition they claim to me?  Not really.  If a coughing fella comes up to me and says he's got Tuberculosis, I'm backing the hell away.  You tell me you've got PTSD because a mentally handicapped Iraqi girl blew herself up and her face landed in your lap?  Sit with me and smoke this J, friend.  Walk up to me in a half-assed dime-store wig and swear to me that there's a pretty lady living deep inside of you?  Well darlin', that's just fine.  Now let me give you the number of some girls who can really help with your look.

For the purposes of this exercise, they don't need to know who they are better than a trained professional who has been dealing with them for years does, they simply have to know who they are better than i do.  Or better than you do.  Or better than an internet message board does.  And that's a really, REALLY easy threshold to cross, so the point goes to them.

Capo Del Bandito: Most people are grossly uneducated and prefer to use 'feelings' instead of analytical thinking.


Feelings still require analysis.  Nobody ever doesn't engage in analytical thinking.  It's just how thinking happens.  You may disagree with the result or find it illogical but it doesn't mean they didn't use analytical thinking to arrive at that point.

You make a lot of assumptions about people based on what you perceive to be a position of higher standing that you hold.  You should be a lot more careful about that.  Pride cometh before a fall.

FirstNationalBastard: radarlove: Because People in power are Stupid: How does he know that he's transgendered?

LOL. It's an inside joke.

Except for the fact that if they are going through a transition and living as the gender they seek to become, it's not a "self assessment", but rather an assessment made after seeing numerous physicians and experts in the fields of psychiatric, endocrine, and developmental medicine.

Being a transgendered individual is not something someone can suddenly up and decide to do in a day's time. It's not crossdressing, and it's not a sexual fetish.

twat_waffle: Peki: Because People in power are Stupid: How does he know that he's transgendered?

The same way you know you're not.

/most of us have known since we were five or younger. If we're lucky, we stop questioning sometime before we hit six feet under.

The article says that this person just figured it out this year. Now I'm a pretty open minded guy, but I don't think you should call yourself trans if you haven't even started reassignment therapy. I got the impression that this person was going to dress like a woman for prom, but still present as a man during school. If that's the case, then that would mean he's a drag queen, not that she's transgender.


You check your Birth Certificate?

/Gender is Physical, not Psychological

God damn he's ugly in a dress.

Should wait till he gets hormone treatment or something first, just in the name of good taste.

That dude makes one ugly chick.  He should probably rethink his strategy.

Ahh, s/he has derp eyes!
I'll drop the / from s/he when s/he's known for more than a year.  I was pretty sure I was a man, a dolphin, a woman, a forklift, and more born in a man's body when I was 18.
