    I ****ed up the title -____-

    Came across this on the BBC website, surprise surprise...

    Poor child, kinda feel sorry for him/her.

    It's their choice. In my eyes, they can identify as whatever they want, and I will respect that. Ultimately, it doesn't affect me.

    Fair enough and I agree, people can do as they please.

    Non-issue. Leave the kid alone, they can decide how and in what way they'll live their life. Why does it matter?

    Was brave enough to open up to the media and you call it a 'delusion', don't be so rude and dismissive. As long as they're happy, who cares? :yawn:

    I didn't say they shouldn't be allowed to do that...

    Just my opinion, I'm sorry it doesn't please you. Meh, we could say the same about paedos, as long as they're happy (and the kid is happy too)?

    As the above responder says, people can do as they please. As long as they maintain that there is a distinction between biological sex and gender (and that there are in fact only two biological sexes), I don't care.

    Totally different thing. Thank you for interpreting my opinion obtusely. You are absolutely entitled to your own, I was just giving my take on it. That's all.

    Well, if a paedophile doesn't actually act upon his desires then I don't see the problem. If we were more open about it I think they would be less afraid to get psychological help, and thus it would ultimately lead to less kids being sexually abused.

    What about the Intersex people? They have both male and female genitals. So, there are 3 biological sexes.

    Is there any proof that any psychological intervention could actually rehabilitate a paedo, or is it just wishful thinking?

    How does this affect you in any way? If it makes them feel more comfortable with themselves then that's absolutely fine.

    No, not really. Intersex is a group of medical conditions. It's not a whole new sex, rather a combination of the two...And technically, if you have a Y chromosome you are male.

    I actually don't care. I just saw it on the BBC and thought I'd share it – I should've expected butthurt though. Shame on me.

    Paedophilia isn't a mental illness, it's a choice. They deserve to be beaten up by vigilante groups and labelled as paedos. Imagine if it was your daughter/son etc...

    The percentage of people who are intersex has been claimed to be about 1.7%, although that is a figure from a single scientist with a particular agenda, and includes people with certain traits that do not actually make them fit the consensus definition of intersex. If the term intersex is restricted to those conditions in which chromosomal sex is inconsistent with phenotypic sex, or in which the phenotype is not classifiable as either male or female (as I think most would agree it should be) then the percentage of intersex people is 0.018%.

    There is a small percentage of people who are born without a leg or even both legs. That does not mean that humans aren't best described as a bipedal species. Moreover, intersex people are not really another sex, as the elements that make them intersex come from the male and female sexes. They do not have any physical traits which are unique. Rather, they are simply a mix of both sexes. You can consider this another sex if you like, but the male and female sexes must still be considered the primary sexes.

    I can see how, these days, if a young girl plays with traditionally male toys (or vice versa), a parent might think:

    "My little girl likes playing with toy cars! She must identify as male! I'll be a good parent and encourage her him to come out."

    And from then on, encouraging the girl to identify as male, thinking that they are helping their kid, but in reality pressuring them into becoming something they are not.

    Since young kids don't particularly know of or care about all gender stereotypes, sometimes playing around with things associated with the other gender doesn't mean they identify as that gender.

    I seriously doubt anyone wakes up in the morning and decides it's a good idea to be a paedophile. If you think you could do that, it may be a good idea to get some psychiatric care as you may be a paedophile. I personally cannot ever imagine being attracted to a child. I could not choose to be attracted to a child, in the same way I could not choose to be attracted to an animal. If you think you could, then I can only assume that you may harbour some paedophilic tendencies yourself. Which isn't a problem, but I'd be sure to keep check on it.

    I'm personally very skeptical about non-binary gender identities. I know of no studies which validate them scientifically. It's also interesting that most non-binary people appear to come from white middle class backgrounds.
