Why Do Some People Want Sex Changes?  Reply with quote  

I'm having trouble understanding this. Is it like you want to have different body parts than you currently have? Or like, you want the cultural aspects of being the opposite sex/gender than you were/currently are?

There was a guy who was full limbed and able, but he never felt right, he felt like his leg was an alien limb attached to his body, he eventually had it amputated and was happier than he ever had been

I believe for a large majority the reason is inherent. It's not really a want or need, it's who they are. Our bodies are merely shells and our genitals are biological. The psychological aspect of it seems rather complex. What makes a man or a women? Is it only physical properties? I don't think so.

I believe someone can be born with a male/female shell but psychologically be innately the opposite of the body they inhabit. I believe the "sex" change- however you'd like to define the limits of that, is a way for the person to feel more comfortable with themselves.

I'm sure we could all relate to something just not feeling right within ourselves and then doing whatever possible to achieve homeostasis. But these are simply my thoughts on the matter, I'm sure some resident people who have experience with this could explain it much more eloquently.

Haha, that was my first thought when I saw this thread.

Anyways, I know that futurist and a few others have addressed this issue in great detail in the past. Doing a little Googling will probably yield some results that might help answer your question, especially considering those people might be tired of having to explain it on here after doing it so many times already. Those threads shouldn't be too hard to find though.

I'm sayin. More 'Post Reply', less 'New Thread', Charlie.

Yep, it only took a few comments before this thread became one big joke.

The last time I jumped into a thread Sage locked it and then deleted my posts to make himself look better.

Not sure about the productiveness of this thread, perhaps a lock?

You didn't 'jump into' that thread. You made that thread, like you made this thread.

And Sage didn't lock the thread, I did. Not only had people answered your question well enough (as GasPrices has here), but they'd also expressed disdain for the whole premise of the thread (as they have here).

I think I probably deleted your last post because the comment "Pizza > Jay-z" seemed like a fun note to end on.

I don't have anything clever to end this one with though.

Sorry, Charlie.






eh?






Charlie and the Obvious Factory ova here.








Pizza > Jay-z
