Transgender stuff - what's going on?

Recommended Posts

Come on boys, it's clear Funnneeeee is reaching out here, and projecting his fears about how he feels about his gender turmoil. He needs our help and encouragement to accept the fact that he wants... ...no, needs to live the rest of his life as a woman. We should be referring him to a psychologist, not taking the piss.

No. You get two weeks at a spa. I saw it on a Michael Moore film so it must be true.

 

They are called Kur or Reha over here, some lovely spa towns in the area I live. They are a pain in the arse to get as they are expensive and the retirement insurance (on the odd occasion the health insurance) pay for it, so they shove loads of red tape in the way. obviously if you have a good specialist doctor you'll get on one easily, but once you have there is a time period of 4 years. They are normally three weeks long but are in most cases extended to four weeks. I had to go on one after I had my hip replacement, waste of fucking time imo.

I think the radical stuff gets too much press. There's a school of thought that if you are straight, fancy women but dont fancy men who identify as women makes you transphobic.

But I've got a friend who is a German-born GP?

 

Obviously severity plays a part, but often depressive states grow over time, you don't ordinarily wake one day severely depressed. Some accidents can make radical changes overnight, though often it's PTSD and not depression that needs to be treated first.

 

Why the question mark? Either you do know someone who is a GP in Germany or you don't. I'm pretty sure he or she didn't tell you the rubbish you are posting. 

 

As far as severity goes, many people who suffer from depression, anxiety attacks, burnout syndrome etc don't go to the doctor immediately. Many of them mainly go when symptoms have reached the point whereas they require a course of anti depressants etc. 

 

Anyway, this is probably for another thread and I've said my bit.

That is not entirely true. Plus, according to the theory, we all have gender issues, as gender is a construct thrust on us. Or is it sex?

 

I've never had sex thrust on me.

 

Well, not often enough anyway.

Can anyone provide a definition of gender? We have a couple of pupils at school who are transitioning, we've had the training but honestly it is really difficult to actually say, for example, what makes a man a man without referencing biology. Doesn't ask for directions? Leaves toilet seat up? Drinks pints and smokes a pipe? It is a challenge to say what makes you the gender you think you are without reference to what's in your pants.

You probably didn't let that woman trapped in your body out often enough.

"I can't empathise so it can't be possible": the very epitome - both literally and metaphorically - of small-mindedness.

If we all have gender issues then why would you be happy jumping from one side of the fence to the other? The issue is surely around not wanting to feel 'trapped' in one gender. Isn't that just good old bisexuality?

 

What kid, at age 6, is being denied a thought or feeling based on their gender or need to be a gender?

 

Maybe we should just follow the EU Withdrawal Bill tonight.

 

 

I don't know. All I know is that everything is supposed to be a construct now. Maybe we should construct everybody as white heterosexual male and do away with all the privilege, oppression and pay gap in one big swoop.  It's all so confusing. I think I stopped keeping up once they increased the number of "non-binary" options to 50 or so.

Can you persuade your boss to cough up £150 for a course? If so, go on one of Stonewall's. They're superb.

 

They describe people as being made up of their sex (bits), gender (identity) and sexuality (who they love).

I had a transgender person tell me I looked fit the other week. Makes you think that it could perhaps be linked to mental illness

Sure, but he wasn't asking for tits and a silicon minge.

And if he was it would have been his choice when he was older

Don't you work out your gender from your sex and who you love?

Read that BBC article earlier and wondered how those parents who took their kid out of school couldn't just see it as a great opportunity to teach that everyone is different.

 

Still, it reminded me of the male Police call handler I knew when I first joined he job. He became Sharon seemingly overnight. Anyway, I was sat in the control room one evening and four officers walked in. The first three acknowledged her with various versions of 'alright Sharon' other than the old time inspector whose greeting was 'alright Dave'.

 

Sharon is a bit of a cunt regardless of gender mind you.
