    Transracial? So now we're identifying as different races now as well?
    I always thought the term was interracial.

    It was only a matter of time, and soon it will become more recognised. Next it will be species.

    Think I'm being ridiculous? That's what they said about all this sex and gender stuff a few years ago. Pandora's box has been opened.

    Perhaps by 2050 I can actually identify as a hamburger.

    I can understand transgender since gender isn't a physical thing. Transsexual I can just about understand, but I have mixed feelings on it. That's not to say I think it's wrong- just that I can't get my head behind it personally. Sex is what genitals you have and we can change that so somebody born with a vagina and thus female could decide to change to a penis and thus become male. That can actually be done even if I don't really understand the reasoning.

    Transracial is taking it too far for me. Race, to my knowledge, is where you were born, who you were born from or where you live. You can't identify as differently. You can respect different cultures and use them in your own life, but you can't actually be any other race unless you have legitimate links to it.
    I could decide to follow a more Japanese lifestyle, but I would still be British because that's where I was born, who I was born from and where I live. If I actually moved to Japan though or had Japanese parents, then I could identify as Japanese, British or both.
    But you can't change your race without actually changing where you live. Even changing your skin colour doesn't change your race.

    He actually means interracial porn. That's why the word came up when he read this.

    Probably that was what said of the first transgender.

    I don't care what profile people choose and I respect people's decisions, but i agree that we may be heading to a chaotic world, where people can identify as anything.

    Who are you to tell me that I cannot identify as a dog or donkey, when Matt can identify as Maria.

    Not sure why this is any more ridiculous than a man saying he’s a woman...
    (Original post by Good bloke)
    It isn't. They are equally ridiculous. This chap really just likes the culture and ambience of where he is and conflates it with feeling he is of a different race. Either that or he is taking the mickey.
    OMG it is NOT the same thing. Honestly wish people would stop saying this nonsense. Transgenders have gender dysphoria. You cannot "act" or "feel" like a race! WTF so you ate chicken chow mein so all off a sudden you are chinese now? Do you understand how stupid that sounds...

    Explain to me what "race dysphoria"? How do you "feel" like a skin ton?
    Anyway, from your previous posts I know you are a troll so I won't be bothered to entertain you.

    Night.

    This madness has all stemmed from people accepting transgenders and homosexuals. Now look what you've caused.
