    Plus transracial won't ever be a thing because technically it's only white people that can be transracial.
    How do you figure?

    Race is purely a social construct and calls you what you look like in society.
    Gender is a social construct sex is biological. Yes but how can you change your race if it does not exist lol? It's just social. She "feels" black because she likes fried chicken or whatever bs doesn't mean anything? That is just attracting stereotypes to skin tone.

    Plus transracial won't ever be a thing because technically it's only white people that can be transracial. A black person cannot transform into a chinese person, so where is the cut off?

    Open my mind a little? are you serious lol....I am quoting from what I've learnt in my psychology a level classes...
    I apologise, i am not insulting you. Honest!

    I meant that you should try to play the devils advocate and see it from the other side.

    Transracialism can take form in anyone from any race. It is not about us, but about what the person in question believes.

    Person A, who was born caucasian and identifies as a big black man cannot be told that it is a lie, if he believes in how he feels. Just like a transgender cannot be told something different to how they feel.

    You are quoting understanding from psychology but you would probably only be taught about accepted knowledge and not new currently disputed ideas.

    How? You are happy with a white person calling themselves black because they like fried chicken?
    No, of course not. It is how they feel.

    A man, who feels like a woman, can be allowed to do that, but why can't a white man feel like he is a big black guy?

    lmao. Your post sounds like you are joking about (not being rude)
    Transracialism cannot be a thing. So eating king prawn fried race would make me chinese or is it listening to kpop? It doesn't make sense. Race is something that society invented whilst gender has been here since the beginning.
    No, this is what psychologists/doctors have studied for 100's of years I would trust them over what a boy on tsr believes. thanks.

    That's not what I meant. I was meant to say something like: A black man cannot turn chinese the way a white women can"turn" black.

    Because transgender is something to be known that takes place in the womb or very early development of gender identity (3-4 years old) and cannot be helped. It's not a choice.
    Transgender is feeling like you have the wrong genitalia and also believing the gender stereotypes in society doesn't add up to your sex. So it's not the same thing. How can you think it's the same thing?

    You are comparing eating a particular food to feeling a different way.

    To compare, you are saying that a man cannot wear a woman's dress and shoes and claim to be a woman.

    It is not about the external items but how the person feels. You can say it is impossible, but it will mean that you are forcing your version of reality to a transracial man or woman.

    A person cannot "feel" a race because it doesn't exist like that. Erugh i cant believe you are not understanding. Anyway, you aren't ever going to agree with me so whatever.
    ps: I would rather believe a psychologist than what a guy on tsr believes

    I can sympathise with him as I am also trans, but I'm actually trans-species as I identify with Lord of the Rings elves: I'm a trans-elf. Sadly, immortality isn't something I'm going to get any time soon so I've been focussing on being trans-hair for a while in that I have naturally dark hair, but I'm doing meditations and things to become blond by 'feeling' what it's like to be blond. It's somewhat worked so far, some of my fringe hairs have turned a golden colour and one of my eyebrow hairs has also turned blond.

    Because transgenderism is about disliking your genitalia and it's also about the way society perceives your gender to your sex.
    Like a man in skirts and makeup won't be widely accepted in males...it's not socially acceptable which shows they have gender dysphoria.

    How can you feel like a Chinese person because you prefer using chopsticks?

    Do you understand the difference now?

    You see that is the point, it only takes some time to legalise everything.
    Citation needed. “Everything” is quite a big subject. Indeed, some things are decriminalised based on progressive morality (i.e. homosexuality), whereas others are criminalised (marital rape, paedophilia, etc). There’s certainly no trend towards the legalisation of everything. That’s the epitome of a slippery slope if I’ve ever seen one

    You stated Peadophilia, but there are agencies out there that are campaigning to make it legal.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nort...ve_Association

    https://www.nambla.org

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/poli...ed-to-ten.html

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-22459815

    You can argue that it wont happen, but it is just a matter of time.
    Of course there are all sorts of outliers and wacky campaigns that have existed for a while. The Official Monster Raving Loony Party has been legitimate party for a very long time now. But does it mean the probability of seeing a satirical PM in 10 Downing St is approaching one at a plausible rate? Of course not, how absurd. The heat death of the universe will occur before paedophilia is legalised, “transracialism” is recognised in science, the leader of the satirical party becomes our PM, etc.

    Ok so I am white, I was born in England, my parents are from northen Europe and as far back as 1840 I can trace back both my parents ancestory to northen europe, I clearly look white. Are you honestly saying that if I told you I was a dark black man from Ethiopia you would not tell me that I am factually wrong and that I am clearly not from Ethiopia because you did not want to hurt my feelings?

    There is a big difference between being polite and just accepting insanity, please also find the "disputed knowlege" that suggests that people can change race

    No, you are still using external items to determine how someone feels.

    My point is that, since we accept men who believe they are women, why cant we accept white males who believe they are black?

    It has been pointed out here that race and gender is a social construct, so it is down to perception and how the person feels.

    Because you dont agree does not mean that it cannot be true.
