I have and would again. I'm gay but it's not like I'm attracted to the penises specifically.

So merely having different preferences to the norm is considered an illness now? What ever happened to free will, or is that an illness too?


With normal homosexuality, I would say no, its not an illness (although its certainly debatable), because from my perspective, that is a preference, and not an error in perception. However, with the "I am a woman trapped in a mans body" (and vise versa) scenario which I'd assume is common among transsexuals, that is due to some mental imbalance causing a change or error (ignore the stigma on the word "error" please) in self perception.

There is a lot of fuzzy philosophy when we get down to the fact that we as humans are just a bundle of chemicals wrapped in meat. What is a decision but a chemical impulse? 

I know I've thought a good deal about depression and depression medication. If my chemical makeup determines who I am, then is taking depression medication "fixing" me, or changing me into someone I'm not? What makes up my identity?

I think you should get past the stigmatized idea of "illness" which you seem to be hung up on...



I'm quite a liberal person but I don't think I'd be attracted to a trans gender person.

I don't judge what people truly think about these matters. I put the option on the poll because I know some people (according to it, quite a lot) believe transsexuality is disgusting. There's some users that openly admit so, and I see no problem in expressing their own opinion. Sure, I would prefer people choosing other options, but hey.


To me, it's as dispicable as finding a race, religioun, or sexual orientation "disgusting." I can't tolerate intolerance. It feels like listening to Donald Sterling talk, but he at least genuinely believes he's not racist.


I don't like when people compare sexuality or gender change to race.Race is natual and no one can choose their race.Going through a gender/sexual transition is not natural.I don't personally find it disgusting,but finding something disgusting is not intolernce.



well yeah

you dont understand... beeing transgender, or gay is natural. the operation isnt, but it makes living better for those people so why not? religion on the other hand is a choice and not natural, and discriminating people because of choices is totaly okay.

Probably not, for a couple reasons.

- I want to have genetic offpring and a family
- Risk of STD's are higher in transexuals

But I'm sure the head is good


Any case studies of this? I'm curious as to why this would be the case.

I don't have one off hand, but the LGBT community is at higher risk for STD's. This is why the aids epidemic spread through the gay community so quickly in the 90's. The reason I've been told is that since there is no risk of pregnancy, the likelyhood of intercourse without a condom is greater.

Plus also reason #3, I have a gf which I adore.....should be reason #1 LOL
