tried to avoid it as the title was irrelevant then it keeps popping in new posts.

Can't see what the issue is - other than having some conversation with the child at home about different people and differences in people.

In a way, yea... however, just because it's actually not an issue doesn't mean it can't be a good and useful conversation after all. Any opportunity to fight ignorance should be taken.

Okay, you asked for it... I shouldn't have had that extra drink. Maybe NSFW

Re: Transexual as a coach

It doesn't happen all at once, does it? First dabble in clothing as a transvestite, then get boobs and become a shemale, hormone therapy, then finally the butterfly.

Re: Transexual as a coach

Nice to see that this thread has descended into derogatory slurs aimed at an already marginalized group with a colossally high rate of suicide thanks to mindsets just like some of those displayed here.


What's the point of all the animosity, exactly?

In more day to day use it tends to refer only to transvestite. It also tends to be viewed as an insulting term for transexuals, as it implies that TV and TS are simply different levels of the same thing, which most people who've even glanced at the subject (i.e. not Phos) will realise is far from the truth.

And just in case there's still any misunderstanding, the difference is simple - a TV has no intention of changing gender.

No not at all. I just like to know the person I am leaving my daughter with.
Do you ask for all the teachers, School dentists, etc to fill out a questionnaire detailing their sexual orientation?


Even if you do, do you think that a child abuser would inform you?

Google 'tranny', select images, and see what you get, I guarantee that there are no transvetites to be found.

Because google images are notoriously accurate and exclusive to the search term, of course.

In the field of sexuality, the definitions are in full blown explosion since the 80ies. It is complex, not very clear for anybody and frankly, it's work in progress. So the dictionaries can only go so far in the update department. You still have encyclopedia around where the post-freudian definitions reduce sexual orientation to a stadium regression... a lot happened in the research and it takes really a loooooooooooooong time before it all sinks in the wide community, dictionary comities in the publishing industry included.

I admit, the terminology is not very stable at the moment in this field. Nonetheless, dismissing any unclarity and grab back to the old school judgmental terminology does not do justice to the intellectual honesty and societal evolution.

It is to clarify misinformation. I have heard of many stories where transvestism was a preceding step in the process towards transexuality. Not to say that all cross-dressers plan to become transexuals.

Who is misinforming?

Using terms like "she-male" and "tranny" isn't a discussion. Stop being deliberately obtuse.
