Thread: Stupid Myths Debunked.

  1. #1

    Default Stupid Myths Debunked.

    There are a lot of bullshit myths surrounding transgender people by misinformed idiots, here is a few and why there bullshit.

    1. Transgender people are sexual perverts who sneak into bathrooms.
    Err?, the medication that transgender people take, does kill there sex drive, and makes it nearly impossible to get hard, as a transperson starting HRT I haven't had a erection in months.... I'm pretty much no longer sexually "active" I literally cannot get hard or have sex anymore, my body no longer produces testosterone and I my testicles no longer produce sperm. Literally all the girls I know on the same medication do not get erections at all.

    2. Being trans in a sports team gives a person a advantage.

    Bullshit, if you understand how HRT works, you'll find out how much it changes the body and lowers testosterone, there is no competitive advantage for someone who is transitioning on medication.

    3. Gender is a choice.
    Absolutely not, transitioning is a very hard and difficult choice to make every single day it's hell until we manage to transition It's something you're born with and manifests itself in many ways, feminine traits, etc. there is something unique about us. It's always "there" a lot of us don't understand what it is until we are older. as a kid I never knew what "transgender" was, but I sure as fuck knew something was odd with my body couldn't put my finger on it, always had this feeling. It's gender dysphoria.

    4. The LGBTQ is a "leftist agenda"
    You're kidding me right? I know people who are right-wing and are transgender, It's not some far-left conspiracy, transgenderism has shown itself in humans for thousands or years, and even shows in specific species of animals (just like homosexuality)

    5. We are men in wigs.
    Fuck no, this is the worst, we are women most people my age pass as females, we aren't deceiving you when we say we are females.. because we are.

    6. We are mentally ill.
    While some of us suffer anxiety and depression, being transgender isn't a mental illness, and there is evidence that shows brain structure is the root of it.

    7. It's made up just like the 76 gender thing.
    While I don't take the entire "76 gender thing seriously" transgender identity has shown itself thought humanity and there is even evidence of a 3rd gender in early history.

    History seems to repeat itself, I've heard all this bullshit before, I've even heard people jump to the conclusion that gays are pedophiles which isn't true, just like the bullshit arguments against gay people, the arguments against transgender people are also bullshit. There rooted in bullshit and nonsense and is equivalent of someone seeing Bigfoot take a walk in the park, some people are reasonable and see it for the bullshit it is.

    I love you all fellow girls <3

    Though I am not transgender, I support those who are. It takes takes great bravery to go against the norm.

    I happen to be trans myself, legally diagnosed with gender dysphoria two and a half years ago. I agree with most of what you say, but I don't inherently agree with 2 or 6.
    I don't agree with 2 because regardless of how much hormones a trans person. Is on, there is still going to be some of the root strength from the person's sex. That is why a trans woman can still lift more than a cis woman in a deadlifting compitition. Overall it's simply hard to have trans woman and cis woman compete against eachother in a strength based competition.
    As for 6, the reason why being trans is a diagnosis is due to a mental illness diagnosed which allows a trans person to transition legally; gender dysphoria. It is, by all classifications, a mental illness. As a psychology major, I also understand why this is the case. If you ignore that, a trans person, especially post transition, may not be mentally ill or noticeably at the least. Transition is the solution to cure gender dysphoria.

    Overall I do agree with you. Instead of making assumptions, people need to look at the whole picture and ask a person who is trans. It would make it a lot easier for us, as assumptions cause us to struggle with negative actions and feelings.

    Thank you for this post.

    That is con fusing to me my best friend is a lesbian lady and she could dead lift me and chuck me across the room. I think it has more to do with body type and size. I could sneak up on an owl and pluck a feather without getting noticed, but I can barely lift a sack of sugar. (don't ask where my still is) I think Body type like sex or sexual choice is given at birth. While we can enhance one or the other through training and medical intervention. One should be happy with who one is or change it. I enjoy being a mostly Hetero male. but I also like and appreciate my Transsexual friends the are some of the most beautiful ladies.

    What about transmen, do you love them as well? I find many get swept away with the fight for transwomen's rights but never think about transmen and their struggles. Not being mean just see a lot of 'love all the girls' and little love for the guys who are trans.

    I don't see why it matters, as this was a post debunking specifically trans woman myths. Grated, some could pass as trans myths in general, but the topic was specifically for trans women.

    I'm all for talking about rights in general, regardless of the people in question. If it is a huge deal, why not make a post about trans men rights rather than comment in a topic about a different group of people? I believe to common thing an extreme left leaning person would say would be "stay in your lane" or something along those lines. I don't agree with that sentiment (as I am not a liberal idealist), however some people may, so just be weary of that.

    In the end, fight for what you believe in, but topics like this on a forum are not indicative of someone not supporting another group of people. They wanted to spread awareness from their own perspective, just as I did.

    The post was about debunking myths about transgender people, not just transwomen. I was just pointing out there are other transpeople who need support as well. I like Jess and support her greatly, I just wanted make the point that people reading this topic, who may know nothing about any transpeople, may find it useful to know there are struggles for transmen as well.

    Fair, however, they chose to direct it towards trans women in the end. No one here objects to the fact that trans men have struggles too, but you came here on a post and made your moot statement when no one was objecting said fact. People know this already, so once again, why not make a new post on it? Because I'm sure there are different things they struggle with comparatively and a new post rather than a buried post on this one would be more effective.

    I think that MotherFaith makes a really fair point. We always should strive to make our language more inclusive. The site with its prominent trans girl community does have a tendency to equate "being trans" with "being a trans woman", but I personally do know that trans people of all types; male, non-binary, genderfluid, and many even just people questioning their gender identity do pop in and I believe in making them all feel included.

    Honestly we would probably have more if we encouraged them to share more.

    I mean I do believe this was more of a Little Jess trying to specifically sound out on a few grievances rather than open it as a general thread about trans myths and that's why she wrote it the way she did, however, that doesn't mean we shouldn't use inclusive language! Always use it when applicable!




    I actually did have a few other comments myself about specifically what was said though.

    Absolutely tons of people suffer from extreme gender dysphoria and very likely don't feel like their gender was ever their choice. (Myself included.) That's valid. I, however, am never a huge fan of this idea of using "it's not a choice" as an actual defense, however. If someone does for some reason choose this lifestyle for whatever reason, as miserable and hard as it can be, I respect they're doing it for a reason that matters to them. I'm just happy they are making decisions that will make them happier and feel more comfortable with themselves and their place in the world. I often struggle this almost defensive idea that it deserves to be taken seriously because it's "not a choice" like.. this idea that if we could cured of our feelings then we would be required to do so rather than express them and be different.

    While certainly one can be a fiscal conversative and a trans person, it is true that the left at least do more for LGBTQA+. I mean, kinda easy to beat the "bathroom bill" party though.. conspiracy? More like pandering. "Not them!" is a pretty persuasive argument right now. "We'll treat you like a human being deserving respect!" Gee-Wilikers! Sign me up!

    Lastly, although this was never said outright, I'm always wanting to say.. it doesn't matter what stage of transition you are, or if you pass, or if you'll ever pass. Your gender is valid.

    Well to be fair this is the Sissy / Girls section, If it had of been in the mature topics, I would of left out that last part.

    I apologize for that. I know a few trans-men indeed they are generally left out. The post was aimed towards trans-girls in specific, but It can apply to both trans-females and trans-men. bits and pieces anyway.
