Their result for The Transsexual Education Test ...
7% Knowledge, 47% Temperance, 60% Acceptance, 0% Ignorance, 0% Prejudice, 0% Transsexual and 100% Cissexual!
Your not transsexual but this doesn't mean you have a negative position on it either... Truth is you know enough about loving people to be okay with transsexuals. You probably believe people should be happy with who they are and just do what they think is best. This is not without a sense of conservation, that they have to be good people, and not criminal or truly perverse. However if you learned more about transsexuals you could even become an advocate. Did you know that transsexuals are 33% more likely to commit suicide than cisgender. The matter of a transsexuals status is a life or death situation, as for most, remaining in their birth sex's role would be a death sentence. The sense of self loathing would be too much for them, and would most likely result in self destruction. Some people look at it as an option, and you may as well, though you think they have the right to make that choice... It's their bodies after all, but for those who those gender feelings are intense, transition is a matter of survival. I don't know how much you know or don't know, but thank you for showing compassion for what other people want and need. Keep it up.
(Facts and figures on the test:
Transsexuals usually transition do a combination of hormone/mood mismatch, and emotional distress caused by incongruency of gender identity and physical sex. They can not help it.
Transsexuals are psychologically identical by statistical margines with the gender they say they are (I.E. a transwoman, and a woman take the same test they are highly likely to answer similarly) People have a varying array of personalities, so it's not an exact science.
Almost all transsexuals know as early as 2 - 3 years of age than they are transsexual, on the basis they feel their gender is different from their sex. Sexual centers of the brain haven't developed, and can not produce sensations of arousal.
Suicide rates are higher 33% than heteronormal counterparts.
Suicide attempt rates hover in the 50% among transsexuals as a group.
Hate crimes against transsexuals is 3 - 5 times the national average for gays, and lesbians, and 10 times the national average for racial crimes.
Scientists and Doctors have found several mechanisms and proofs of a biological basis for Transsexuality in humans and several other species. Rats, cats, dogs also propose instances of transsexuality. IIn humans the deprivation of hormones at 4 - 7 weeks of term results in brain structures that aren't masculinized in the fetus. These children are born with BST regions equal to their Cisgender counterpart. I.E. Male babies born with female brains. BST regions are smaller in women, and larger in men, and it most all cases of transsexuals studied postmortum, their BST region matched the sex of their gender orientation.
Some theories point to estrogen dominance being to blame, in that its the hormonal signal from the mother, and if the approriate gene doesn't convert it in the fetus (to testosterone from the study), the baby's brain is sheilded from change. As most of us know estrogen in sufficient doses can block the creation of testosterone. It's possible that radical and xenoestrogens in food products could be blocking the use of testosterone in early phase male fetuses, and cause transsexuality at least in the case of Male to Female. It's also known that progesterone in high enough amounts converts to testosterone, and could be a partial unstudied reason for transsexuality in female to males. (More studies are required for full Female to Male causal relationships)
In the genetics, there is a sex differentiation gene that is longer than normal which impacts adrogen (Testosterone) sensitivity. Without this sensitivity, once again you end up with a male fetus with a female brain.
Cases of female to male transsexuals is much less understood, but therapists and doctors frequently observe an enhancement of mental state, mood and overall mental health almost like an antidepressant in both transmen (FtM) and transwomen (MtF). This case one case study observed that giving hormone therapy for the opposite sex to normal patients resulted in degradation of mental health, and negative mood alteration. This is often observed in patient on hormone therapy for other than transitional purposes.
Most studies about this point to a hormone mismatch, being that in a normal male there is more testosterone receptors and fewer estrogen receptors in key parts of the brain. Doctors and therapist are starting to conclude that these numbers are reversed in a transsexual person, based on direct, and indirect hormonal reactions.)
