Stick figure sex chart
According to a widespread conception of what it means to be transsexual, most transsexual women were always “women” in terms of their inner psychology (i.e., they felt their sexual identity was “woman” and they often had female-typical/feminine-gendered desires, interests, and attitudes).
Transsexual women were never really men on the inside, according to this narrative, they were women who had the misfortune of being born in the wrong sexual body. Unraveling age, puberty and testosterone effects on subcortical brain development across adolescence. But like most such writings (owing to lack of extant research, I take it), it leaves out a further related (and interacting) dimension (or periodic table? Malinowski's classic study noted that among his Melanesian youth, some were constantly falling in and out of love, some only once or twice and some evidently never.
Some exposures to HIV carry a much higher risk of transmission than other exposures.
For some exposures, while transmission is biologically possible, the risk is so low that it is not possible to put a precise number on it. Even relatively small risks can add up over time and lead to a high lifetime risk of getting HIV.
Transgendered individuals frequently face intense prejudices and physical dangers in trying to live their authentic lives around the world (looking at you, North Carolina).
Here is a brief, emotionally-compelling video describing some transgender people’s problematic experiences with health care in the USA.
For example, people with complete Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome have X and Y chromosomes (typically, this makes one “male”), but they usually grow up as female and are completely unaware they are chromosomally male until infertility issues lead to a genetic revelation. Neuroimaging differences in spatial cognition between men and male-to-female transsexuals before and during hormone therapy. Trabzuni, D., Ramasamy, A., Imran, S., Walker, R., Smith, C., Weale, M. You didn't even bother bringing up socialization, or mention the way biology influences that.
There are a wide variety of other intersexual conditions or disorders of sexual development (DSDs), including different types of Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, Klinefelter Syndrome, Swyer Syndrome, and 5-Alpha Reductase Deficiency in which a person with X and Y chromosomes has a feminine looking body until reaching puberty, after which their body begins to take on a masculine appearance. Schöning, S., Engelien, A., Bauer, C., Kugel, H., Kersting, A., Roestel, C., ... I'm not sure what more to say, when I'd have to write out an entire historical explaination, to point out the errors - when you should already know that. Instead of coming up with & spreading harmful gender ideology, the goal should simply be - people are individuals, with individual experiences. Or should people keep making up "genders", that somehow still seem to always go back to, & conform to, feminine/ masculine? An oppressive sexed hierarchy created by people to control the way society runs.
The esteemed Anne Fausto-Sterling (2012) has argued for using dynamical systems theory to understand varying influences on sex/gender diversity (see also Fausto-Sterling et al., 2012). Schmitt knows about the science of this subject, via email contact or otherwise. And I expect that this will be shared around a lot by people experiencing confusion over these issues.Not everyone agrees with this view, including many transsexuals themselves (see here), but it is a very common narrative. Danielsson's in-depth study of Polynesians asserted that romantic love was absent there and offered an interesting possible explanation.A Periodic Table of Sexual Diversity Some sexual scientists have tried to chart the many different expressions of sex/gender identity, putting together formal models of what we know about variations in (masculine, feminine, androgynous, something else; note: the term “gender identity” is often conflated with sexual identity, here I use gendered identity to refer to the degree a person is typically masculine and/or feminine for their society), (monogamous, polyamorous, open, something else), and other important forms of sexual diversity. And even in our love-besotted society, as early as a half-century ago over 20% of adult survey subjects indicated that they had never been in love.Sexological legend Milton Diamond also has a compelling model of sex/gender diversity he calls Biased-Interaction Theory (see Diamond, 2006). The part aboout Eibl-Eibesfeldt reminded me that those who are struggling to be recongised as the sex they identify as can make incredibly detailed observers ...
Sexual scientists have learned a lot about sex/gender identities, but really we’ve just begun to understand the causes underlying the myriad ways humans express their sexual selves. A Scientific Understanding of Sex and Gender is Challenging As I see it, there are three big challenges with trying to create integrative models of sex/gender diversity (or developing a “Periodic Table” of sexualities). I'm sorry, but the traits being used here are mostly sex characteristics (biological differences, not "innate" behaviors), or completely sexist.
The first is that, unlike atoms, human sexuality doesn’t come in the form of clean, distinct categories (actually, in some ways atoms don’t either). Widespread sex differences in gene expression and splicing in the adult human brain. Trying to claim females have certain behaviors, personalities, preferences, etc, because they are female - is sexist. Voices are nothing but biological development, (anatomy), having nothing to do with their feminine/ masculine brain.
