    Ok so am I am white, born in Ethiopa , my parents are from Northern Europe but I have been raised by an Ethiopian family from birth. Are you honestly saying that If I told you I felt more Ethiopian than to my ancestry, I would be lying?

    Makes far more sense than a 40 year old man all of a sudden claiming he feels like a woman.

    In cases such as this particular news story you either have to accept and respect this persons decision as you would with transgender people..

    or

    You recognise both to be a mental illness.

    Can't pick and choose.
    There is a big difference between someone going "I feel more Japanese than English" if they had japanese influence in their life such as a parent or grandparent but me saying that I am black is factually incorrect, me saying that I am Ethiopian is factually incorrect. sure you can claim you are a woman or claim you are black but you cannot change your gender nor can you change your race.

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

    That's fine.

    Point was, I just don't like the hypocrisy where people accept the notion that men can claim to be women but a white person claiming to be black is preposterous.

    Stating that it is okay for Bruce Jenner to change his gender but not okay for Person A to change their race, when we both agree that race and gender and social constructs.

    It is discrimination against the transracial community and very wicked.

    I wouldn’t bother with these disingenuous conservatives, tbh. Slippery slope is their favourite fallacy. Always has been.

    Yes but gender is also associated with sex
    So they are changing their sex according to the way their gender is perceived in society.
    They believe their is a mismatch between their gender identity and sex.

    Lol its not discrimination. Transracial people are beyond ridiculous and not to be taken seriously.
    Person a: why do you want to be black?
    Transracial: I love fried chicken.

    Do you see how silly this sounds?

    "Why do you want to be a woman?"
    "Because I love high heels and pretty lipstick."

    Let's not pretend that a man wearing heels, make up and skirts is socially acceptable. Because it isn't and shows a clear sign of gender dysphoria.

    A white man can easily enjoy his fried chicken without being black. How is that a clear sign of "Racial dysphoria" (which doesn't exist?)
    Anyway done with this convo now on bye

    Being black is not only about fried chicken?

    Are you black because you are pushing this stereotype of blacks and chicken.

    Well, it's because this is an uncomfortable truth. Uncomfortable at the moment, anyway - When we draw the logical conclusion that 'feeling' like something means you -are- that something, this has to apply to more things. Once it is socially acceptable to be 'racially dysphoric', she'll be on board. Right now, she doesn't like it because it's not socially acceptable and shows the logical holes in the belief.

    That's not true, you're suggesting that cross-dressing necessitates gender dysphoria - that's not the case, you can enjoy playing a drag act etc. without having to feel uncomfortable as your birth gender.

    The medical community as a whole seems to differ with you on this, care to share your evidence that they've been wrong all this time?
