    Gender is in the mind. In this dude's case he is a dude born in a chick's body.

    Gender is in the mind like race is in the mind. The only difference between us and the guy in the Dave Chappelle skit is none of us are blind so we have no legitimate excuse for any confusion we might have about who we are.

    but you can have your gender reassigned to legally make you female, which is what I was getting at..I really could care less though.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    Do you still not understand that this is a medical condition that is well documented with thousands and thousands of cases?

    I know in never never land or some other make believe world you like to pretend to be in you can pretend to be another gender and you are another gender. But in the real world if you are born a man then you will always be a man and if you are born a woman then you will always be a woman. All the surgery and hormones pills will not change that fact.


    I really could care less though.
    If you do not care then why do you insist on posting your make believe nonsense?

    Why the hell is this an issue? These are kids who decided for themselves that they wanted a transgender individual to represent them as their homecoming king. What grounds does the school have to enforce gender roles on its students? Why must the school be "consistent with gender'?

    Also, do you really think the qualifications to be a heart surgeon are the same to be a homecoming king for a high school? Or do you really think this transgender's lack of a Y chromosome inhibits their ability to be a homecoming king in the same that your lack of education in medicine inhibits your ability to perform surgery? Hyperbole anyone?

    Did it ever cross on your mind that a group of kids got together to do this for less than honorable reasons?

    Keep in mind that in the Medical community this is not normal behavior or they would not talk about it in terms of it being a disorder.

    There are two components of Gender Identity Disorder, both of which must be present to make the diagnosis. There must be evidence of a strong and persistent gross-gender identification, which is the desire to be, or the insistence that one is of the other sex. This cross-gender identification must not merely be a desire for any perceived cultural advantages of being the other sex. there must also be evidence of persistent discomfort about one’s assigned sex or a sense of inappropriateness in the gender role of that sex. The diagnosis is not made if the individual has a concurrent physical intersex condition (e.g., androgen insensitivity syndrome or congenital adrenal hyperplasia). To make the diagnosis, there must be evidence of clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.
    I'm not saying it's bad just that we need to know what we are talking about and not just shoot from the hip all the time.

    If you convince the experts you are in true need of this, it's up to you but not until you are an adult. It is far too important to leave to a child to decide and even for a parent to condone. People are not who they will become when they are still children you grown into to who you are with time and life experiences.

    Such as what?

    Correction. The psychiatric community. And frankly, I think being a psychiatrist is a disorder.
