Believing you have different sex chromosomes to the ones you were born with, and wanting to castrate yourself are clearly the signs of a sane, well-balanced individual.

World's gone nuts.

Who says they believe they have different chromosomes? Who says they want to castrate themselves?

Your prejudice and ignorance are becoming ever more apparent with every post. Scratch that - they were pretty obvious from the outset.

Must be nice looking down from that high-horse of yours, Sam. Why don't you resort to some kind of logic instead of pathetic virtue-signalling?

I thought gender was a social construct and sex was a biological one? Trans ideology flagrantly contradicts that.

In the nick of time, the BBC arrives with fuel for the dying fire! http://www.bbc.com/travel/story/2018...make-the-rules

Now, interestingly (to me at least), the Popeye character Alice the Goon came from Goon Island, located somewhere off the coast of South America. For those not familiar with Popeye, Alice is to all appearances a hairy, physically imposing, extremely strong man, who nonetheless presents as a woman. Several sources attest the noun 'goon' as first seen in 1921, with the character of Alice the Goon. The only prior attestations are for the adjective "gony" (a stupid or clumsy person - 1580), and "gooney bird" (an albatross - 1850). So, Segar, who drew Popeye, got 'goon' from somewhere other than common usage - either just made it up, backconstructed it from "gooney", or possibly adapted it from something else he had heard. It may well be that a sailor's yarn about what he saw in the Guna islands gave birth to Alice the Goon.

And I must beg pardon. "Goon" is indeed attested from 1921, but the character didn't appear until 1933. As Emily Litella would say, "Never mind."

Matriarchies are not uncommon in the animal kingdom e.g. elephants, whales. Some fish swim in schools with one male as leader and the rest all females. If something happens to the male the highest-ranking female changes sex and takes his place.

The goons weird me out. Bizarre characters for a kids cartoon.

Popeye in general is more than a little bizarre.

Just be happy with who and what you are, Harry, and then you can mind your own business when it comes to others. Consider yourself lucky if all your friends and family members have turned out 'normal' - as you would define it.

And they can consider themselves even luckier if they all conform to your lofty standards for living.

This website may be concerned with events from 130 years ago, but most of us have moved on from the worst aspects of 'Victorian values'.

It's only because we live in an increasingly permissive, postmodern society that stuff like this is becoming normalised.
If you believe in a mythical cloudman that created the universe, your brain isn't wired right.

Why should these people be allowed to run businesses or roam freely in society when they are clearly suffering from some sort of debilitating violent hallucination and disconnection from reality?

And yet these very same people are constantly practicing ritual drowning of their infants, ritual cannibalism, ritual celebration of executions and going around proudly displaying instruments of torture and death around their necks in celebration of ritually sacrificing humans. They are clearly a danger to sane human beings and yet, they're allowed to go about celebrating their death cult without interference.

But they have a problem because a girl wants to wear pants and a guy wants to wear a skirt. Yeah. Who exactly is mentally ill?
