    I think we have different definitions of interesting.

    That's daft thinking. It would be entirely possible for everyone to get what they wanted if our political parties valued the NHS more. The reason waiting times are down etc isn't because they are employing psychologists for these issues FFS Also, mental health should be supported by the NHS, IMO. Just as important as physical health. The fact both are chronically underfunded is a political issue, that they tell you is an economic one. It's purely ideological. They always find money down the back of the sofa when they need it.

    That's one example of someone who feels they've made a mistake. Hundreds of not thousands of other examples of people who are delighted with what they've been able to do. That's not to say this kind of thing can't happen. Very foolish to assume one negative, and actually really sad and unfortunate story, is generally the truth with what goes on. I met a trans woman at a party a few years ago, and was curious, started asking questions, she was really nice, explained the whole process etc, it's no fucking cakewalk. Most people are doing it on a whim, normally, you are extensively screened, checked, vetted, before they even let you take hormones, let alone get any surgery. So, your NI contributions, at large, aren't getting "spunked away" when it comes to things like this. Quite often it's helping someone live a much better quality of life than they did before. What I'd also say on this is that he has every right to sue. He was clearly depressed because of his homosexuality and I agree, specialists should've picked that up.

    3 Tories desperate to keep their seats- Labour appeasing them. What a sorry state UK politics is in. Hardly a discernible difference between Tory/Labour right now.

    You can't actively change it no, but according to the articles posted chromosomes don't = expected sex at all times. I just think folk should live and let live, does no use to be derogatory to trans folks. Just alienates an already alienated subset of society further, and it's unfair. They deserve as much respect and dignity as the next person, regardless of what you feel about their own gender identity. It's basic politeness to refer to people as they'd like/even attempt to understand them. Anyway. I certainly won't be getting dragged into this again.
  7. No I didn't, at all, actually. If you read it thoroughly, which granted I don't always do, you'd see that my position on that didn't change.
  8. No, nor would I. But I would refer to people have specific degrees in the topics being discussed, and study the topics for a living.

    My man, I've sent you articles that show it's not entirely the case, you just refuse to read them. How can you say something is nonsense if you refuse to read both sides? Its not for me to dispute, as I won't claim to know more about the human body than him, I'll simply tentatively claim, that what psychologists, biologists and neurologists thought about sex/gender 30 years ago is undoubtedly different to what they think know. What TCs description was, was a general rule of thumb, but as stated, and anyone who knows anything about science (not that I know much) there are almost always exceptions to the rule in the animal kingdom.
  10. so you're saying "fringe" scientists can be right? Interesting. My opinion hasn't changed on fuck all. I get dragged into silly little side arguments, makes it harder to keep a solid train of thought and there's an inevitable mistype. I'll stick to the big guns from now on.

    I wholly respect TCs statements. He's a nurse. To be respected. He ain't however to my knowledge, a biologist, neurologist, or psychologist. He probably went to nursing school around 30 years ago now, when trans people were considered simply, mentally insane. The science on that front has changed ten fold in that time. So whilst I respect TC is undoubtedly telling us the truth about what he knows to be a man or a woman, that is probably no longer entirely the case. There will always be exceptions to any rule of nature. Always. That's the beauty of science, which you like to reference, it never stays as one thing, the more they study, test, learn, the more rounded and informed our opinions can become. I won't claim to know more about the human body than TC, what I'm saying is that the science regarding gender, sex etc is constantly evolving. Nothing in science ever stays in one place.

    So a woman and a man are only defined but their chromosomes, their genitals? Nothing else? Not sure the science entirely supports that rigid view. https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/voices/stop-using-phony-science-to-justify-transphobia/ https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/02/200205084203.htm

    I don't think anyone has suggested you can change a persons sex once it's been set My only assertion is that humans are complicated and your sex doesn't necessarily relate to your gender. I read this a few years back and fished it out https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/voices/stop-using-phony-science-to-justify-transphobia/ Interesting, I thought.

    Is that confirmed or speculated?
