Sex, Gender, and Transgenderism. Claiming gender is a social construct does not validate the existence of trans people, as it seems that ideologs believe. In fact, it makes transpeople unable to exist. Gender body dysmorphia is a feeling that one's physical morphology does not match their minds. If gender is a social construct, and there is no objective body morphology for a specific gender, then someone cannot have gender body dysmorphia. You cannot both have a constructed, arbitrary gender and feel your sexual dimorphism is wrong for your gender. Being trans requires that gender is not an amorphous construct. It must be an objective, concrete state of being. Sex is a biological phenomenon. Gender is a sense of identity that is a combination of biology and socialization. Gender roles and gender expression are a cultural/social phenomenon which are very strongly informed by biology. Sexual dimorphism is a key component of gender and gender identity, and hormones play a strong role in gender expression. Notable Studies: Waber (1976) Found that late maturing boys were better at verbal ability than boys who were early developers - suggesting that boys who had less male sex hormones were better at (and so more likely to be encouraged to hone) social skills - associated with female behaviour. Hampson and Kimura (1988) Women were tested at different times of the month. At the times when their oestrogen and progesterone (female sex hormones) were highest, they performed best at fine motor skills but worst in their visual-spatial tasks compared to other times when the levels of these hormones were lower. Van Goozen et al. (1995) Found that transsexuals who underwent 3 months of hormone therapy adopted increased intelligence in the areas that the sex hormones were associated with: female hormone takers gained skills in verbal fluency and became worse at visual-spatial skills and less aggressive. Those that took the male hormones showed the opposite. Galligani et al. (1996) Found that athletes who had taken steroids (increasing levels of testosterone) were more aggressive (a male quality) than those that hadn't. Brain morphology includes a region called the sexually dimorphic zone which affects sexual attraction. It is larger and denser in men than women. Cross-cultural studies that demonstrate that sexual attraction between men and women has universal components, such as high neoteny in women and low neoteny in men. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/249179177_Sexual_Selection_Physical_Attractiveness_and_Facial_Neoteny_Cross-cultural_Evidence_and_Implications https://digitalcommons.usu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1601&context=fchd_facpub Sexual dimorphism of male and female brains is well known and scientifically uncontroversial. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/16285200/ Masculinization or feminization of the brain happens during sexual differentiation in fetal development, due to exposure of sex hormones which influence brain development. The prevailing hypothesis is hormone receptors in transgender brains are unusual due to genetic or epigenetic factors. This makes the brain develop in an atypical fashion. This is borne out by magnetic imaging which shows that transgender people have sexual dimorphic brain structures more similar, but not identical, to their identified gender over their biological sex. https://www.endocrine-abstracts.org/ea/0056/ea0056s30.3.htm If this continues to be supported by subsequent research, it validates "being trans" as an objective function of brain development. Modern ideology attempts to normalize transgenderism by presenting it as almost a choice. The untold harm this could do to both transgender individuals and to young still developing people is extreme. The best and only ethically compassionate answer to support and protect the rights of trans individuals is to continue researching and recognizing transgenderism as a rare, biological phenomenon.
