You do not know how far the ignorance of people can run. : ) Don't try to act like you know what you are talking about when this entire situation is a mystery to even those who experience it."None of us can fathom what it's like to not be okay with your body to that degree"-Me, the post you are replying to
I completely understand your point. You're telling me something I never disagreed with. I'm just saying if gender reassignment is what people want to go through with there is no reason why we should prohibit them from doing such because I'd imagine those people are at the end of their rope already when they're even considering things like this.
Don't you prefer to question how they've reached the end of the rope to begin with? The rope is as long as you allow it to be. No more different than the wick of one's internal bomb. If people control their anger, their wick is much more longer. Same goes for those who are letting life devour them, because they technically step out side, turn around, bend down and say ''Come and get it!'' That is short from self-defeatism actually. It is only sad if people give up on life, because they only THINK they are experiencing an identity or gender crisis. When it MAY NOT even be that. People are always going to be cockroaches when they have no captain to steer their way in life.
Also suicide and manic depression are prevalent in people with extreme gender identity problems. So yeah, I'd say it's a pretty big problem for those people and not something that I'm blowing out of proportion. It's not like I'm saying it extends beyond the very small minority of people who have gender identity issues. I'm just saying it would really suck to be in that position and it kind of annoys me when people like the OP come along and examine the situation from this rigid standpoint of intolerance and misunderstanding.
Again, alot of our emotions can be controlled. They choose not to control their emotions, to get a hold of themselves. Can you argue that they should stop complaining about it and realise that they aren't some special problem. There are individuals out there with REAL life anguish impeding on their individual wills as a human being. While they complain about something NOBODY IS EVEN SURE OF - not even them.
At the end of the day, I think people should do whatever makes them feel happy without harming others. Modern surgery is so advanced that it's difficult to argue that gender reassignment is a physical harm to the individual.
I disagree. People are becoming more and more lazy, cowards, irresponsible - always coming up with excuses, hiding their true colours, etc! You are encouraging the very thing we should be confronting. We should not give them the benefit of the doubt for making their choices, they need to stop being headless chickens.
I'm not even that passionate about this issue fyi it's just nobody is on my side and arguing on the internet is really fun.
+ 1. Arguing with people OVERALL is really great. : )
