The bathroom bill, which promotes the idea that schools need to provide trans students with bathrooms and locker rooms that match their gender identity instead of their birth sex, is a very controversial topic, and with that comes some very different opinions. Mine, in fact, is rather complicated because I don’t understand what daily life is like for trans students. But before I state my opinion and back it up with psychological research I would like to break down the whole idea of transgender within the bill and how that relates to a scientific perspective. Okay, so in the proposed bill “gender identity” is defined as “an individual’s deeply felt internal and individual experience of gender, which may or may not correspond with the sex that the individual was born with.”
Gender dysphoria is the dissatisfaction with the biological sex one is born with which results in a multitude of symptoms. The dysphoria often associated with wanting to alter one’s body and gender expression to be parallel with what is felt to be one’s gender identity. Either a trans person is born with a female mind and a male parts, or the alternate. (Phillips, 2014). The mind cannot be operated on so the only choice is to help trans-sexualism is to alter the body using surgery and other hormonal replacement therapy options so it mirrors what the mind sees.
Because of their relative invisibility in public life, many people have a poor grasp on what being transgender really is. To be fair, this is a complicated issue, encompassing its own subsection of the LGBT+ community with its own unique groups. To put it simply, a transgender person is somebody who identifies as a gender other than the one written on their birth certificate. This often means identifying as the opposite sex, but some transgender people live in between the gender binary or outside it altogether. Typically, transgender people live express their identity in different ways: dressing as their preferred gender, going through hormone therapy to alter their bodies, undergoing sex reassignment surgery to change their genitals, or a
What we today see as genders is the norms that follow when born as a girl or as a boy. What is being connected to male norms of masculinity is strength, aggression and dominance, while woman more often than not follow norms such as passivity, nurturing and subordination. We have come to realise in recent years that your gender and your sex is not the same thing. The fact that there is not only two genders but a lot more is also something that has been discovered. Transgender is those who is born as one gender, but identifies as another.
Donald Trump tweeted in July that he is banning transgenders from the military. His tweet was “Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail.” Transgender is part of the LGBT community. The LGBT community is the grouping of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, and Transgenders. Transgenders are people that changed from either a male to a female or the other way around.
Transgender is the term used to describe an individual whose gender identity does not align with their sex assigned at birth. The documentary, “Growing up Trans”, is a sensitive clip to watch about young youths who attempt to navigate family, friends, gender, and the medical decisions they face at puberty. “Growing up Trans” focuses mainly on transitioned young youths. The transgender youth from the documentary links to many theories from chapter eight. Theories such as socialization, gender, sexuality, homophobia, transphobia, and microaggression are associated with “Growing up Trans”.
Her opinion is a perfect example of the social discourse in our culture that promotes a binary view of gender in which trans identities are rejected entirely in the view that there are only men and woman. She grew up in the 1970s and 19080s when the idea that trans would complete gender reassignment surgery was common. Years later, she does not fully grasp the idea that the decision to have or not have sex reassignment surgery is an individual choice and that there are many other options that transgenders can choose such as
Gender Dysphoria is when a person’s emotional and psychological identity is not the same as their sex. Some people begin to change themselves so that the world can see them as they do. We call those who change transgender. People who face Gender Dysphoria have been in every branch of the Armed Forces and in countless wars. Being a soldier has always been an important and honorable career choice.
Trans-gender – “(This is) an umbrella term, like trans for individuals who blur the lines of traditional gender expression…. (Trans-genders) may or may not choose to change physical characteristics of their bodies or legally change their sex” (Meyer, 2010). It is a term for a person who has changed his/her original sexuality, but did not undergo medical treatments or
A true transgender is determined to self-identify. Christine Jorgensen was asked on why some transsexuals are still in the same emotional shape even after transition and so Christine said: “There have been a few people who were unhappy about their status in life and they felt that the sexual reassignment surgery will change their life that much, and it really doesn’t. It’s who you are that’s important. I refer to it as a Cinderella syndrome. I’ve met cases who went from male to female thinking prince charming is coming around the corner on a white horse.
A person appearance do not describe what they feel and really are in the inside letting transgender use the gender restroom they were born to use make them no less than a man or a woman because that is who they were born to be. A man can be dress as a woman but inside he is still a man so he should be able to use the restroom to what he is. Appearance is a big role in society today but everyone is different so the difference in people has to be seen so that there is no discrimination. Everyone have their own flaws and no flaw is greater than the other one so accepting people
