Queerty is better as a member
I may have missed something but…
This doesn’t make any sense to me. If you give a man estrogen he could grow breasts but isn’t going to suddenly want to be a woman. If you give a woman testosterone she will get a deep voice and could start growing a beard but it isn’t going to change her orientation either.
If transgenders could be “Cured” by giving them hormones don’t you think the bigoted doctors and Psychologists out there would have been doing that for years???
Or did I miss something?
Now that is DRAMA.
@Cam: From the news story it sounded like he had been exposed to female hormones at a younger age, but it’s still odd. Regardless, something caused enough trauma to his brain that he had global amnesia for two days, so it’s not too hard to imagine that it could cause a shift in there. Or, he’s lying to cover his ass because transitioning was too hard, and he decided to just Dallas the whole thing. Either way, I hope he finds a way to be comfortable in himself.
This story is a perfect reason as to why the T group should have its own blog and not be a part of the G&L group.
@Dixie Rect: What a very vague statement to make.
@Dixie Rect: What does that even mean? What is this “perfect reason”?
Most Gs and Ls don’t want to be associated with this kind of silly crazy ridiculous drama and complete carnival like weirdness. It’s brings the gay/lesbian community down. Stop being so politically correct and admit it to yourselves and your friends: they don’t want to be identified in the same group as freaks like this. Stop the madness. Please.
A strange story… but there are enough things even stranger that I can’t see any particular reason to doubt it’s true.
“TRANSient global amnesia” is a clinical diagnosis and there is no test that can confirm it. My 2 cents is that any mom that makes their son take estrogen to keep getting bit parts as a child actor is a little bit crazy and the poor guy was likely dealing with a bunch of childhood trauma that included psychoactive hormones. As a part of going back through that childhood trauma type of business (transitioning with those same hormones) he probably had a dissociative break that got diagnosed as TGA
I think whoever cleared him psychiatrically to go through with his transition didn’t do a very good job IMO
@Cam: It could be because He was exposed to high levels of female hormones at a young age while his body and brain were still developing. This may have interfered with the proper development of his brain.
He looks insane.
@Dixie Rect: Somehow I doubt that you know what most “Gs and Ls” want to be associated with, since you can’t possibly know most of the millions of “Gs and Ls”. But you obviously know many, many adjectives. So good on you.
@Dixie Rect: “Most Gs and Ls don’t want to be associated with this kind of silly crazy ridiculous drama and complete carnival like weirdness.”
Please don’t project your issues onto me. I (as well as every other L, G, or B I know) welcome transgender individuals into the community. If this is how you feel, fine. But don’t imply a majority of LGB’s feel the way you do, because that’s not necessarily true.
My expert opinion is that this guy is cuckoo. They should do a few brain scans and hope that they can find a tumor or some other specific organic cause that can be treated.
The article does not say if he completed his transition. Sounds like a panic attack over having his junk renovated to me.
@Dixie Rect: Ummmmm, Dixie – Many TRANS women are appalled at this and we don’t want to have anything to do with it either.
@GreatGatsby2011: Indeed, a significant number of T’s are also within the LGB part.
@Alan down in Florida: It’s a years-long process. He only started a few months ago.
just as Rebecca responded I’m surprised that any body can earn $8431 in four weeks on the computer. did you see this website >>> http://www.work35.com.
Yes, there are Ts that are also L, G or B. A dear friend of mine is a gay transsexual man. I for one as a gay cis man love my trans brothers and sisters. They are definitely a part of our community and have been since Stonewall. Some bigots just need to get over themselves.
