    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transsexual

    I don't care what the latest trend in the PC and SJW community is. Some of the very few people who change their sex might prefer transexual. That doesn't change the meaning of the word.
    I don't care about you needing to wikipedia transsexual lol
    I also don't see your point.
    And yes I've acknowledged that transgenders might want to become transsexual.

    So now that you're confused with the subject of your own thread, let me also repeat that

    transgender is a word. Words have sounds and definitions, whether you like or understand it or not. K? And the definition of transgender is this:

    -someone who thinks they are another sex, whether they change sexes or not
    Sex definition:
    Physical genitalia

    Transsexual definition:
    Someone who changes their physical genitalia

    Now do you get it?

    and yet here I am, still doing a better job at it than you
    Amusing, you wouldn't know me to comment as such and think you can define personality by sex.

    You also thought I was purposefully insulting you which I wasn't just stating fact.

    But they are allowing themselves to be mutilated to feed off their selfish delusions. How can they possibly be off a sound mind to do such a thing?

    Just because we have a disproportionate suicide rate it doesnt mean we are delusional. We suffer from gender dysphoria, which is not a delusion, which causes us to be unhappy for longer periods of time. Many of the suicides occur before treatment, which has been shown to have bemeficial effects on our mental health. On the other hand, negative reactions to trans people, unsupportive.families and homelessness can also be a cause for suicide

    You said you were doing a better job of being a man than myself. As you can only define a man by his physicality of which you don't have then you MUST be defining it by personality.

    Trans people are delusional and yes that is a fact your a woman pretending to be a man.

    The biggest predictor for suicide is a feeling of no hope. One could hypothesise they come to a realisation they can never be the opposite sex or that post op you can never go back to not being mutilated.

    You lost because you didn't answer the question. You have no evidence of God's existence.

    "Love thy neighbour" - just saying.

    Oh and also, there's gay stories in the Bible - lmao.
    Why does anyone have to provide you with evidence?
    We're free to have our beliefs. Doesn't need to be understood or accepted by you

    TrueDetective01 be-marker">TrueDetective01ibTrueDet ective01i that last comment is a prime example of why trans people commit suicide.

    Why cant it be a mix of both. I might not have the physiology but my mental state and personality is masculine enough for it

    Transsexuality is a disorder (in my opinion) but being gay, bi, lesbian etx isn't because you can't help who you're attracted to. It's not possible to force yourself to love a gender you're not attracted to.
