    • This is NOT a lifestyle decision or a mental illness - it is a biological medication condition. It would really pay to read some of the links I posted then you would not be so ignorant.

      So I suggest you read these few links:
      Transsexual gene link identified - http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/7689007.stm

      Sexual differentiation of the human brain
      in relation to gender identity and
      sexual orientation - http://shb-info.org/sexbrain.html

    • I wont be going anywhere because I am on a mission here to educate some of the worst homophobic/transphobic bigoted ignoramus on this website about the topics of being intersex, transgender or transsexual. So you best pull up a chair, get comfortable and get use to it. Because its time that people like yourself realise that we have a place in society and we do have legal rights ;)

      What I find is that people only fear what they don't know or understand., Hopefully after you get to know me bette More..

    • Well, making a lot of big calls there about someone you know nothing about. Kind of ironic perhaps?

    • I am a very liberal person, however I am NOT going to tolerate racial comments or any other hatred, vilification and abuse - we have legal rights & I will exercise mine anytime I want. I have an agenda here and putting up with homophobic & transpobic bullshit is not part of that - END OF STORY!

      I warned you I can be a real bitch so if you want to keep posting on my media, I hope you really don't push your luck.

    I may not agree with their lifestyles, but hey, let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

    • Well Said!

      Except that it is not a lifestyle, being transgender is a life that needs to be lived you are talking about. It is not a choice you make - it chooses you. To choose this difficult road and to be prepared to face up to such bigotry takes enormous amounts of courage and you don't undertake this type of a journey if there are other options available. The problem is, there was no little blue pills available that could rewire my brain as a male and fix up my crazy androgynous looking body More..

  • By nature, we are male and female. Not by tradition or culture. If governments use their mighty armed forces to rule and fail, why they pretend us by nature, not tradition or culture, to accept some type of behavior, lifestyle or sexual preference over night? It's the government job to tell us what to accept/like or not? I don't hate you as a person based on their sexual preference. But do not impose it over me.
