How Much Do You Know About The Science Behind Who We Are?

Being a member of the rainbow family, it doesn't mean we know everything about other members, other letters of our alphabet soup. I have a lot to learn about the T,QQIAA, fluidity and so on. So when there is a chance to learn more, I take it.

What can science tell us about gender identity and gender dysphoria? This week AsapSCIENCE breaks down the science of being transgender in an educational and respectful way with the help of Gigi Gorgeous.

 

 

 

Of course, most of the people that are against us still believe that science cannot be used to explain science, dinosaurs, and global warming, but at least we can educate yourself.

I have to doubt this video. Firstly, sex is not assigned; sex is observed. It is unscientific to treat sex as assigned because it is not.

As far as I know there is no sound evidence of a male brain and a female brain. There are certain slight differences even between heterosexual and homosexual brains but not sufficiently or distinctive different so as to boldly assert that there is a male brain and a feel brain. If there were sound evidence of a male and a female brain then transgender people would not need to go through psychological therapy to treat gender dysphoria.

Most cases of gender dysphoria tend to disappear. Most kids with gender dysphoria will see their gender dysphoria disappear during adolescence. Gender dysphoria is very common among kids and people with autism and asperger syndrome. You can watch videos on YT to understand why they show greater inclination to develop gender dysphoria. Transition is ideally recommended when therapy has failed to treat gender dysphoria and not advised for all gender dysphoric people because the possibility of gender dysphoria disappearing happens. Indeed people detransition.

All we honestly know is that gender dysphoria is a mental illness that can be treated with psychological therapy and only extreme cases are ideally apt for medical transition.
