  1. 1. If FTMs and MTFs could trade bodies with a 50% survival rate, would you take the risk?

    • Yes
      78
    • No
      70

Hypothetically, if it were possible for an FTM and MTF to trade bodies, but the survival rate is only 50% (You have a 50% chance of dying); would you do it? Discuss why.

No I would not take that chance...that is too much to loose....though I feel like I would die if I did not change bodies...but if that was my choice no I would not...I will adjust as I am doing now....

I can definitely see how the answers will vary, depending on how far along in transition people are, and if they have any loved ones in their lives.

I voted yes, because I don't put much value on my life, I guess. I also don't have much hope for this world. Who knows when all the systems will collapse, or when terrorists finally win, or when our economy is too far gone. I also hate my height and my shoulders. Things I can't change, so it would be worth the risk to me.

I would, for me in all honesty if I had a chance to live properly it's worth the chance of death. If I could live real instead of as close to real as I can get I would take that chance, to me it's worth the risk. Though since now this isn't possible I'll go with what I can do to change and what I am doing. ^_^

no. i think there is something to be said for the one who plays the hand s/he is dealt, no matter how "unfortunate" the outcome may seem. emphasis on the SEEM...because due to our perception, things may not always BE as "horrible" as they appear. but to view them through another lens, we may gain insight into how to deal with our current situation. we have the power to change much more in our surroundings than we initially think. perception is just ONE of the keys.

hrm..i ranted a little. :blush: my bad.

No. If it was between that and living with my current body, I might, but I would rather just transition. I want my male body, not just any one. I will not take that much of a risk to be taller with satisfactory genitals.

No no, not like that. Not randomly. You and an MTF would match up or find each other then agree to trade. Heck, maybe they'd make a dating service type thing out of it if it were real. People could browse ads for the type of body, hair, eyes and etc they want. This random idea of mine is evolving out of control, lol. I originally thought of it because an FTM friend of mine said "I'll trade you" and I've seen other people say it on this board. I just wanted to add a moral dilemma so I added the survival rate. It's been interesting seeing people's votes and reasons so far.

I value life too much...so no.... I would assume this was a science based enhancement so waiting does give chances for them to improve survival rates...but I guess I'm dodging the question.

i voted no because no matter what my body says i am a girl and i would live the same way anyway.=) and if i were to take that chance and it went wrong i would never be whole where as if transition and have srs and get on hrt it is harder but more rewarding imo. and with al that i will be almost as whole as a regular female.

Question: with the 50% survival rate, is it just you who would die or would both you and the other person you switched with die?

I thought of that as well. It'd be selfish if each person had their own survival rate. It would also be sad if were you the person that lived and your old body died. The chances of both people living would only be 50% of 50%, which would also be sad. I'd say you live together or die together!

First of all, the whole question is subjective; I'm seeing this as more of a brain transplant than anything. It's debatable whether something called a "soul" exists or not. (Even if it did, how would you transplant it? It doesn't seem to be tangible.)

Assuming a successful brain transplant could even BE done, there would be a huge risk of organ rejection... so, no, the whole thing seems futile to me, even if the results were perfect.

No, I wouldn't do it. Life is 100% fatal, in the end. I wouldn't do anything to risk shortening my life. Even though I wish some pretty big things are different, I definitely want to hang around.

I'm waiting for research with stem cells and such to advance enough to grow me the right parts. I don't want someone else's body. I want to fix mine!!

I really like that perspective. I've learned a lot from everyone's answers here and I enjoy reading them.

:rolleyes: If there was a site where you could meet with a MTF and FTM I would just act as if I wanted to go through with it, and then I'll use my incredibly smooth, manipulative, and debonair techniques to eventually hook up with the person :lol:

I voted no. I have not lived 18 years just t take that huge of a risk. Transitioning is important and all but it would hurt others around me to see me dead like that.

I already feel like i am dieing inside this body as it is now, so the chance to be whole and pure would be worth it to me. There has been many nights i have dreamed this was possible and i did it everytime.

i voted yes without hesitation. it's funny you would even bring this up because i thought of this often when i was younger. hey, a girl can dream can't she. i've aready lived a half a century, sounds like a long time, doesn't it, and i've pretty much lived my life. i so dislike this prison i'm in that death might be sweet release from my miserable existence if i didn't survive. :( and if i did suvive, i could finially get on with my life. :)

      Hi Elissa! Welcome to Transpulse! My mom  took about a year to come around (sort of), my dad took about 3 months. Initially they were very hostile to it. I kept in touch, and basically showed them it was not the end of the world and it was what was best  for me.   Hugs, Marcie   .

      I didn't get to make it to this years march as the sap is flowing on the farm.  I certainly enjoyed the march last year.  Here is a picture from that event. what a great group of women.  I got there early and had a great time simply relating to others.                 Hugs,   Charlize

      I agree that we may well not be much better off here in the US.  There is definitely a backlash and in some areas or with certain demographics our safety doesn't exist.  Fortunately there are also many who are much more accepting than ever.  I have to look at that bright side. A bit of a Pollyanna ?   Hugs,   Charlize

      Sad to say, this is running about the same as it is here in the U.S. and may not be as bad in a couple of places, but still it is pretty bad overall.  Great Britain has about the same stats on H8ers, minus the KKK of course, but the Fundamentalist and Roman Catholic influences are used as the same excuses to just plain hate from what I have heard.
