Well, someone said that there's a 30% suicide rate in transgendered people. About 1/3 of them are probably extremely emotionally unstable.
It's not so much emotionally unstable as it is just depression. Gender dysphoria affects nearly all transgender people and it can lead people to suicide if something isn't done about. This is especially problematic to people who are unaccepted/disowned by their parents.
Well it seems I am wrong
The above study showed that the MTF transgendered people had reduced seretonin when on hormone treatments.
A lack of seretonin is linked to increased suicide and depression as said below
I'm going to find if a hormonal treatment contains ways of stabilizing seretonin
if i said that this wouldn't change anything about your relationship i'd be lying because personally i would also find it really jarring
but you've been dating for 3 years and you haven't noticed anything so just try not to pay it any mind because she's a girl now in the present
just imagine she's only saying that to see if you liked her and was just testing you to see if you were loyal or something
To me your "experience with trans people" seems to not go anywhere out of making them feel like shit, being disrespectful, and ignorant in this thread. I'd hate to see how you would treat one of us outside of the Internet.
I'm pretty sure the OP's situation was solved a few pages back.
That was the green light for the transgender debate to release the floodgates iirc
but personally i'd find it jarring either way
anyways if you really have to think about breaking up with her after finding this out you really must not love her enough for this to not bother you anyways so you might as well break up
Forget his mood. It's about the truth. As far as sign up I was here before .
He. Forget what he's turned himself into. That's only reason we're discussing anything. He started as male, and physically transformed himself to accomodate his " she " mindset. Still not female. Only in his mind. Blame biology.
Huge trust issue aside, the only reason I could see breaking up would be..
1. This causes you to realize your values won't work with her, seeing as how you might want kids (your kids, not adoption) and she can't offer that.
2. If it bothers you, but I read the entire thread and apparently it doesn't so no big deal.
I love how if someone isn't 100% on the "lets surgically modify my body, and use drug therapy" to solve an internal sexual conflict/feeling of being trapped in someone else body train is arrogant, ignorant, rude, and an asshole.
Most people aren't transgender, the idea of getting their parts surgically removed, going through drug therapy, and doing other things in the name of sexual orientation seems extreme to a majority of people.
You can't act hostile towards them when they have the slightest opinion that isn't up to par with yours. IE stop being so fucking black and white, its a touchy subject, and a weird/extreme subject for most people. If you want people to understand you, and understand why someone would go through sexual reassignment surgery, you're better off educating them instead of yelling at them and calling them a bigot because they aren't in your mindset.
Can anyone tell me what the OP's last post was or what he decided to do if he has said? Haven't seen a post from him in the browsing over the last couple of pages.
Cool, thanks. Glad to hear it, too.
Maybe if you started taking some authority of opinion in real life and openly disagreeing with people instead of saying 'yeah you are right' you would not have the urge to disagree with people online when, in reality, you probably don't feel all that strongly about what you are saying here other than using it as an outlet for your frustration.
That's how I'm coming to understand you anyway
I'm not even listing to what the transgendered person is saying because I don't care. I'm focused on other important things such as working towards a lifelong career. I disagree with people in real life too like any normal person.
i don't have time to argue with trans people irl but I have time for it on the Internet!
I think for the safety of yourself and those around you, you ought to get a hobby and spend all of your time doing it
Leafing through this thread and i see a shit ton of hostility when it comes to the slightest questioning, and differing in opinion regarding transgenderism and reassignment surgery.
I think I can tell who the trannies are in this thread
