    No not really, not when there are better and more fun things in my life. But what I keep hearing here is that the best woman athlete can't measure up to the average high school male. I'm just not buying it.

    we didn't say average HS male athlete but we do note the very best women athletes will not win state championships in the bigger states

    women's world record in the Mile 4.12.56 (Svetlana Masterkova, Russia)

    Ohio state record, boy's 1600 (the older records in yards were actually better)

    Bob Kennedy 4.05 (1600)

    That is not true at all, here are several people on this forum with the access you require and if you don't want to take their word for it, then its on you.

    I'd personally love to know who. I have a suspicion that chimeraism might be a lot more common among the "alternate" sexualities as well as the intersexed/transgenders. But I don't have the expertise in the right fields to set up studies, and I'm not aware of any such studies being done.

    I'll take their word over your's, thanks.

    Especially in light of the discrimination transsexuals experience on a daily basis. This forum is no exception.
    Ahh yes. Because THAT is totally what should be the determining factor for a medical definition. The following sums it up perfectly:

    "Many transgender people and researchers support declassification of GID because they say the diagnosis pathologizes gender variance, reinforces the binary model of gender, and can result in stigmatization of transgender individuals."

    Trans(lol)lation: The trans people don't like it that they are officially classified as mentally ill, and get all "triggered" by people calling it what it actually is, so they want to change an established definition that they don't like into something they do (the SJW's favorite pass time these days).

    Well there is quite a difference between who somebody likes and who somebody thinks they are. In the latter, they believe something that is provably/demonstrably false. That is open and shut mental illness.

    See the above response to nicci.

    IE: Not an elective surgery but a medical one.
    Being a medical surgery does not mean it isn't elective. They CHOOSE to mutilate their genitals. It isn't like getting a bypass surgery where the patient will die without it. It's more like the hollywood housewife that wants botox and some new tits. "They'll make her feeeeeeeeel better". Same thing. Elective/cosmetic.

    Yeah let's just cover everything! Lipo for fat people. Leg extensions for short people. Nose jobs for ugly people. Face lifts for old people. Let's all go get some surgery to make us all feel better.

    I should clarify, access to the individuals to do the study. I missed the "equipment" part of the post.

    That's fine you can take the APA's word over mine, as I agree with the APA and it being declassified as a mental disorder. It isn't a mental disorder, anymore than green eyes are a mental disorder compared to blue/brown.

    Basically you don't like it, its icky, and you don't want to change your sex. That is fine, no one is going to make you. I'm glad you don't have to deal with what a transsexual has to deal with on a daily basis. There is a reason the suicide rate is so high.
