    I don't necessarily disagree with this statement. It has been used in conjunction with BIID, saying that it's a new condition that had been created by some medical people, and that if it gets officialy codified in the DSM, we'd see a resurgence of people self-identifying with it, even if they don't have it, as if it was "chic" to have BIID.

    I'm convinced that if it gets in the "shrink's bible" we will see more people with BIID, but only because of growing awareness that these feelings are an actual honest-to-goodness condition. People have these feelings and feel extremely isolated, thinking they are the only ones. I hear it several times per month, people emailing me saying "thank you for your site, I thought I was the only one feeling this way".

    And BIID isn't new. Perhaps the name is new, and awareness of the condition is new, but it certainly isn't. There's mention of a case that appears to be BIID in a medical memoir from France dating from the late 1700's. Just food for thoughts.

    Besides, in the case of BIID, I doubt doctors would be in league with pharmaceutical companies to sell more drugs, considering that courses of medication aren't actually helping transabled individuals...

    You know, I have watched this thread for a while and have commented in it but I find it so hard to accept. I am a gay man. I have issues of feminine versus masculine roles to deal with daily and consistently. I just find it hard to believe that gender disorders have anything more to do with the ability to accept one's sexual role than biology. I think that its better to accept one's lot in life biologically and to accept one's role in sexual interaction than to indulge this idea that you aren't the right sex. Sex or gender is determined by biology. It's not determined by one's fantasy that your sex is what you want to make it. That's just weird to me.

    Yeah, I am a homo and I love dick. I mean, I reaaaaaallly reaaaaallly love it. But I also love my dick and what I can do with it. Perhaps some kind of counseling that makes you understand your dick and how it plays into your existence would be better than cutting it off and making a clit out of it.

    I dunno. I am not judging. I am just commenting based on my own experience.

    But... It's not indulgence. It's not fantasy. Yeah, it is biology, but not biology you can necessarily see with the naked eye...

    I'm you're regular five-and-a-half foot Asian American. I speak Cantonese. I'm gifted in math. I graduated with honors in high school. You know...the typical Asian.

    Yet, I feel like I shoulda been born a Mexican American. And I'm being dead serious, no joke. I love Latina women. Not only the women but I love their lifestyle, their food, the type of family structure. I think I would be a lot happier if I was Mexican. I mean I don't hate my life or anything, but I have a great attraction to that sort of lifestyle.

    ...Posole sounds pretty good right about now - lol

    Maybe it's not a question of getting it, but accepting the research of people who have specialised in that field? You don't have to understand it to accept. Me, I just don't understand the attraction to the male anatomy. I'm glad most women are attracted to my dangly bits, but I can't understand how a man could find another man attractive. But I accept it. Live and let live.

    That's a lifestyle...not a change in who you are. I find latin men...immaculate. I mean, I love the way they move, the darkness, the heat, the way they don't care whether you accept them or not, the sexual attraction...

    But that in no way diminishes my sexual identity. It doesn't detract from the fact that I am a man and I like it. Just for the excitement and love of it.

    The idea that my penis isn't an integral part of who I am is just...bizarre. It's so...weird to me.

    And again, I don't judge. I just think it's disturbed that one might try to diminish his biology in an effort to achieve a costume. And that's all it is...a costume. Biology is what it is.

    Re: Transgendered. Insane or Misunderstood?

    I'm an Obese man trapped in a slim man's body. I eat nothing but fudge and beef jerky 24 hours a day and I still cannot expand my girth to anythintg respectable.

    I cry at night while watching the Biggest Loser because these people have no idea what they are giving up and how much I would love to be them.

    I love Pie and Cake and Processed foods. I eat chicken sandwiches from vending machines by the half dozen and nothing.

    I'm thinking about having a fat transplant. Do they do that yet?

    When I started playing WoW I gained nearly 20 pounds. Maybe you can do that?
