    Great post. Hard to make any progress with a transgender normalization advocate who won't even commit to saying whether male/female is based on brain or body.

    I've said on this board tons of times that Iranian society is both: 1. More compatible with the West than most of the world; and 2. superior to Western society in some specific, limited ways.

    Moreso than the vast majority of nations, even non-theocratic ones, they have the ability to consider new viewpoints and revise their way of life without ruining the integrity of their beliefs. I'm not scholar on this, so this is merely from observation, but it's extremely admirable from what I've seen.

    Not gonna get into the trans debate again, since the conservatives on this board are superbly ignorant on the issue, but thanks for the thread TS.

    Most of the time, the brain and body have the same sex, so there's no reason to base it on one. That's like saying, "is race based on skin color or bone structure/facial traits?"

    A lot of you completely dismiss the scientific genetics cases of transgenders. They absolutely have genetic traits in their DNA of male and female.

    Persian people aint that bad. Aside from their nutty ayatollahs, they're clearly the most capable and reasonable middle eastern people. Their major problem is allowing crazy assholes to hijack power since the CIA and MI6 fucked them over in the 50s for their oil.

    What does that mean? Either brains are inherently m/f (and if so, how do you operationally define each?) or bodies are. Can't be both. So which is it?

    1. It is a mental issue more promoted in western world by some

    2. You could make an argument that promoting transgenderism = backwards

    1.- Tolerance = promotion?

    2.- It is more tolerated in the west thanks to liberals, 100 years of liberal progressivism is what separates the west from the middle east.

    1. Yup shooting small children with hormones cause they identify with different gender

    2. Just cause you say progressive, doesn't mean it's right. Sure liberals played key role back on the day, just like feminists. The problem is new age liberals/feminists went too far with their "progressiveness"

    1.- I specifically pointed out that i disagree with taking it too far.

    2.- Pretty much yes, that doesnt means that its useless.

    Why can't it be both?

    A human brain can be male (shaped by high amounts of androgen) or female (shaped by high amounts of estrogen).

    A human body can be male (shaped by high amounts of androgen) or female (shaped by high amounts of estrogen).

    How much androgen makes a brain male and how much estrogen makes a brain female?

    As I understand it, it's less about specific amounts. Our brains get their sex hormones in the uterus. Typically, an XY fetus will get male hormones and an XX fetus will get female hormones. I don't know if they measure exactly how much of each hormone is delivered. I reckon it would require pretty invasive measures to learn that.

    Trans is a mental illness, why are ya'll debating crazy???

    It's like asking a serial killer, why they killed so many ppl? why not stop at 18???

    It's like asking a pedophile, why they can't just like ppl born before 1998??? why do they need the young ones?

    Entirely nonsense. They just want to boost their international credibility in female sports.

    So you're claiming there's a such thing as a male brain and female brain, but you don't even know how the two are distinguished?
