MechaPyx: RKade....You asked what would drive someone to seek out that kind of surgery and I'm not sure how to explain it adequately. Why does anyone do the things they do? It's complicated and the reasons why can vary from person to person.

Somewhere they came to the decision that it was the right choice for them. Like I said, it's their life, their body, their choice. They have to weigh the pros and cons and decide if this will provide them an overall quality of life improvement or not. Personally? I want the surgery but I don't feel current medical technique is up to the task even with the best surgeon. I have a friend who had surgery and seems thrilled with the results. She went to one of the best surgeons though. Unfortunately, they aren't all equal. There are a number of different techniques in use, some better than others(some are jealously guarded secrets) and the skill level of the surgeons varies. Some just aren't up to the task, in my opinion.

What you're asking gets to the root of what it means to be trans and I just don't have the words to explain that. I'm honestly not trying to be mean here. A little sarcastic I'll admit but not mean. If I'm defensive it's because I'm frequently asked to justify my life choices by people who have no right to ask. Sorry if I took that out on you.

mike_the_engineer: hardinparamedic: So, what field of engineering are you in?

The one thing that every engineering discipline has in common is that it requires the rigorous application of facts and logic.  There is no room for emotion because at the end of the day, you have to produce a result in the real world.  By the way, if you ever want to get out of jury duty, just say you're an engineer.  We never get picked because lawyers know we aren't swayed by their weak "appeal to emotion" arguments.  So if Gender Dysphoria is classified as a mental disorder, it's a farking mental disorder.  It doesn't matter that people are offended or that you FEEL like it's wrong.  It is what it is.




Is that the explanation for why, relative to their level of education, there are a disproportionate number of creationists who have engineering degrees?

snocone: Foxxinnia: God-is-a-Taco: As the gay marriage battle winds down, this will be the new fight for rights and tolerance.
And I don't mean that in a bad way or anything, this country and much of the world still has a burning hatred for the transgendered.

Fark especially is a good example. People have begrudgingly accepted gays, but these threads are full of shiatheads.

Well homosexuality and transsexuality are two wildly different things, so makes sense why there seems to be a bit of a disconnect between the support of them.

You gotta remember that 47% of people's brains slam shut over any word with that ""sexuality" thing in it. No cognition, just shut the fark down.


That's only true if it's legitimate sexuality.

We are living in an exciting time where academic and societal ideas of sex, gender, and orientation are getting broken further apart and redefined leading to better chances of personal discovery and finding tools to be happy. Some people don't like exciting times of personal discovery and happiness. Those people are threadshiatters.That is my new theory about these Fark threads.

Paris1127: For some reason, I thought the headline said Seattle Transponder community...


Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a farking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a three-piece suit on hire purchase in a range of farking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fark you are on Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing farking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, farked up brats you spawned to replace yourselves. Choose your future. Choose life... But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin' else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you've got heroin?
