So many people saying sex=/=gender.
If you're a man, you're a man.
If you're a woman, you're a woman.
If you feel you were wrongly assigned, you have a mental disorder.
The end.

Do angry black men read?
The WHO and DSM say gender is a spectrum from Male to female and beyond that. As much as one in 10,000 births are neither male nor female, some are both, some are none, most are one... and within those that are one, none or both are people who identify as straight,gay ,bi or not sexually attracted to anything.

You could have someone with the body of a man but a the brain of a women, someone who was born a women but physically the brain is characteristic of a typical male brain etc etc.
Mental disorders or diseases have to physically affect you detrimentally or cause harm or distress to yourself or others. (Not society)

But by all means hate faggots for another reason, just not that one.

what is the -mental disorder- causing one to have a gender different to their sex? i dont think you'll find it in any scientific, medical, or psychological journals. personally i like to think that the reason for this is that you are full of ****
like if people really wanna be a boy even though they have a vagina, let them do it and dont be a dick to them. that would be really cool

I think anon is saying that is they think that they should be the opposite gender, which (I think) is different from wanting to be the opposite gender, which is what I got from your comment.

no i know what you're talking about
that's called gender dysphoria, most commonly seen as "why couldn't i have been born a girl/boy" and its pretty much the reason for sex changes most of the time
and that is indeed what i was referring to
gender dysphoria isnt professionally listed as a mental disorder anywhere (the point i was making)
and if people have gender dysphoria and would be happier if you treated them as their preferred gender, doing so would be really cool. that was my other point
youre right in that there is a difference between gender dysphoria and "itd be cool to be a boy i guess" but i was talking about gender dysphoria

Yes, it would be really cool if I treated them as the gender they want to be identified as, but that doesn't mean there is nothing wrong with them wanting to be identified as something that they aren't.
