Erm, nope.

Every animal does, why would we not have any?

No, I have met many people undergoing/gone therapy and it only works so well. It works best pre puberty, but again, sex organs won't develop so the results are always limit. You just clealry are happy to go with anything so that makes you very biased straight away.

Saying it only works so well is vague so ill leave that one alone.

Point being the bio chem between trans and cis is closer than you realise. Keep in mind we were talking about hormones being replaced. The trans women that I have known talked about how there testosterone levels had been reduced to that of cis women.

Yes Trans women even after sex reassignment surgery still cant have children. Medical science will get there eventually.


On you calling me biased, I do not care whether or not people are willing to have intimate relationships with trans individuals, But when people think that it is just a choice,wrong,sin and that kind of stuff, i will speak up. It is a medical issue and should be treated as such. Reparaitive therapy and other such things have been shown ineffective. Transitioning has shown the best results,even more so when done as a replacement puberty.

You for some reason assume I don't realise - I do. But what happens is still not enough for most people. As I said, hormone theraphy does not change genetics ergo changes that happen during puberty are not solved etc. They may reduce testosterone, but what about their estrogen levels etc? They won't have the natural fluctuation in them as women do.

No one has said it is choice. As I have said, I know many people who have gone under gender reassignment. The only factor here is that you need to realise that the vast majority of people would not be comfortable dating such a wide range of folks like you have as most folks are just hetrosexual.

So are men.

No, men really are not. They are reknown for being straight forward and simple.

Being known for something and actually being it are two different things, though.

lol no no,  women are on a whole new level of complications, you may think you know whats going on but in reality you haven't even scratched the surface, they don't know what they're thinking half the time (I've actually been told this by many women).

Well if I had access to carbon 2 dating and the body wasn't too badly decomposed, I think guessing the date of the transsexual wouldn't be too difficult. If it was from the megalithic period, things might be a little more difficult to work with.

No. Sterotypes and reputations come around (mostly) for a reason. As I said, guys are reknown for being obvious and simple. If you think otherwise then either you have found a guy who is very rare and isn't obvious, or the issue is at your end.

Precisely.

These thoughts or beliefs may or may not accurately reflect reality.  - "Definition and assessment of accuracy in social stereotypes"

 

While, and I agree with you, stereotypes hold some degree of historical truth, they have no real basis on a scientific study. Black people are stereotyped by screaming "nigga" to each other, eat watermelon and rob liquor stores, but there's no scientifical reason to believe such thing.

 

Men, like women, deal with complex situations throughout their lives; they might have a more straightforward way of approaching certain problems than women, and biologically speaking they do not have to deal with several things that women do, but that doesn't make them simpler.

That's just wrong sorry. Take the sterotype of Chinese are smart. They have the best education system and statistically come out as the best performing and behaving children/students. That proves why the idea came about. With blacks, they commit a disproportionate amount of crime in Western countries, so again, that is why the sterotype came about. It wound make no sense for a sterotype to be based on nothing but a random idea as people would just say that it is rubbish.

Men deal with problems far more logically and do not become as emotive about many subjects as women do (this is a fact, go wiki how male and female brains and reasoning differ). Sure, people with issues will make things harder, but men are not reknown for being more simple for no reason.

Wow. In 2015. Really guys?

Anyway, of course I would. I'm pansexual, my decision to date someone doesn't depend on their gender identity or biological sex. And I respect that people say that they wouldn't want to because they want kids, I get that. I just don't care much for that tbh, adoption's always an option.
