    Metta... I'm not even going to read the article but I have to tell you I started laughing as soon as I read the title and probably remember why.

    Scientists have changed their minds three times on the health qualities of eating chicken eggs... Fourty years it's taken

    They've flipped and flopped four times on the how much alcohol the healthiest people should drink. Now they all for people getting a happy hour buzz daily. Just a half century involved.

    Now they've revised their "cause of homosexuality" theories for the 12,353rd time since the Greeks.

    So taking that track record into consideration... what are the realistic odds they could get something REALLY BIG right the first time out...

    While you're thinking about that I'm going to chip off some 120,000 year old Ice from Greenland to go with my booze while I eat an omelet and then catch a nap on my extinct polar bear rug while I burn rainforest lumber in my smoke emitting fireplace.

    bob is right! Einstein was a total crock, the "theory of relativity" is just that... A THEORY! obviously science doesn't work.

    Making a comparison between the Theory of relativity and Global warming is like comparing the Mona Lisa to Grafitti

    In both cases...

    One was produced by a genius after over a decade of work the other a "work" comprised by any passerby......

    ...........like politicians stock market manipulators, Goldman Sachs, the uber rich, political puppets, Wall Street, a ponzi scheme that nearly killed the economies of Spain, Bulgaria Portugal, Greece and Ireland because their politicians were stupid enough to throw all their money into it....... oh yeah and some scientists too.




    Theory of relativity never had a Goldman Sachs Political puppet (Al Gore) make a movie to push it.

    ...... or the undisputed biggest stock market scammer ever born (Richard Sandor) come out with a way to redistribute money to third world nations (cap and trade) from industrialized nations that would cause all their electric rates to "necessarily skyrocket" (Obama's words in 200icon_cool.gif But we found out it wasn't about redistributing wealth to 3rd world countries.. it was about making the uber uber rich even more uber uber rich....

    Had the US been pushed into Cap and Trade (as Obama promised to do) overnight with the Chicago Climate Exchange Sandor started, most of the super rich would have gotten super richer. Al Gore and Generation Investment Management, the venture capital organization he founded with former heads of the evil Goldman Sachs capitalist pigs would have made $58 Billion. Goldman Sachs would have made $10 TRILLION the first year.


    Canadian born billionaire market manipulator Maurice Strong (currently in hiding in China) would have personally made over $25 billion.

    Felix Rohatyn, Wall Street financier and father of the scary idea of a National "infrastructure" Bank would have personally made close to $15 Billion.

    Well yeah.

    Plenty of animal species have very different and very specific behaviour patterns depending on gender. This behaviour is not learned and it not because of massive sexual dimorphism. It's because the brain knows it's gender on an subconscious, instinctive level. It's biology. And where ever biology tries to do something, e.g. make a hand, it can go... off mark. You're not going to get me to say that there's something wrong with non-cis-gendered people but their lives would most likely have been easier if they had been cis. More so than for me if I had been straight.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gender_identity_disorder
    Estimates of the prevalence of gender identity disorder range from a lower bound of 1:2000 (or about 0.05%) in the Netherlands and Belgium[2] to 0.5% in Massachusetts[3] to 1.2% in New Zealand.[4] These numbers are based on those who identify as transgender. It is estimated that about 0.005% to 0.014% of natal males and 0.002% to 0.003% of natal females would be diagnosed with gender dysphoria, based on current diagnostic criteria.


    Given current estimates, with a world population of http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/ around 7.3 billion & based on self-identifying, I guess you'd have to ask anywhere between 3,650,000 and 87,600,000 trannies to find the study's culprit. That's a lot of canvasing. I hope you've a comfortable pair of heels.

    Curious about the study & condition is continued referral to disorder while considering whether it is not a disorder but rather merely differently ordered, not meant to term politically correct but merely being descriptive of what might prove its nature.

    What I've mentioned in past threads that I'd like to see, but I'm sure such a study or if ever proof would be way far off, would be whether or not attraction to trans is biological. After all it makes perfect sense, given Noah's Ark, that humans tend to pair off, even if just to afford a city apartment. So if str8s are pairing off by their natural orientation, as are gays, then why not also trans by their biology.
    .
    I have known and do know guys who are as into trans as I'm into non-trans men. Yet they're considered by psychology as inflicted with fetish which to me does not describe their experience. It seems completely natural to them and I'd be surprised to learn definitively that it was not biological. Such studies could go a long way, were they to find attraction biological, because in the case of one of my friends, he feels completely unsupported by our str8 friends--he's completely afraid to tell them, in the closet to everyone but me--by gay community, even by the bi's.

    To me this study is a step in the right direction even if it was, as charged, misdirected, which I don't think it is, never mind that I don't feel you necessarily need some saturation point of numbers before determining if something is naturally occurring. I seem to be not alone in that: there was that one time visit from God everyone still talks about, divine perhaps but nonetheless naturally occurring (haha) or at least claimed by those into that.

    So this shouldn't come as such a surprise to anyone...

    ...certainly not to the psychological/medical community which might have been mislabeling and thereby mistreating them from the get go by their own prejudices.
