Scientific articles, studies and reports needed

Recommended Posts

shelly_koleva83

I have written about the situation in my country (Bulgaria), where the Constitutional Court erased us with one inadequate and not objective decision. A Court decision that was dictated by the nazi and religious organizations.  

We won't be erased!!!

Our identity, self-consciousness and gender is not a joke it is our life, our core!

 

So I want to ask any of you, who is doing, following, archived any articles and researches, that proves that biological sex is not the main determination for gender, any scientific studies about our identity, even other HRT, trans related studies and articles, please share! 

 

You can send me links here.

 

Thank you very much! 😊

 

P.S. As more they are actual, the better they would be!

Hello, Shelly.  That is a big ask, as there have been many studies on the biology and physiology of transgender identity and its causes.  I do not, however, believe that there is any one or two studies that prove the physical causes of transgenderism beyond doubt.  From my reading of the subject, there may very well be multiple causes.

 

That said, I did a quick Google search of articles and came up with the results below:

 

https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1&q=transgender+science+studies

 

This will at least get you started on your search.  I'm certain that other members and staff have their favorite research studies and articles that they will share.  We're happy to help.  But please be aware that regardless of how many scientific studies we, as a community, share with those in power, it will not change many minds that have been calcified and closed, because, sadly, there are not enough people in power who understand and appreciate science, and dismiss findings they don't find helpful to their cause.  That is true in America, and will be true in Bulgaria, too.  Dogma, religion and political needs will trump (pardon the pun) science every time.

 

Best of luck.

Hi Shelly,

 

I also recommend the book "Being Transgender, What You Should Know", by Thomas E. Bevan, PhD. It addresses the biological factors and science in a language a non-scientist can understand. She argues that being transgender is determined by inherited DNA. The author is also known as Dana Jennett Bevan, a transgender woman, who has worked with the USA government, including the department of defense.

 

Best wishes,

 

Beverly

The first link is one of the better ones. There’s other articles about the topic of genes and fetal development that determine whether or not someone is transgender. I can’t locate the link I had of a more in depth look at this but there is a definite connection between the development of the brain and gender expression. The article also showed that a specific medical practice in the late 60s and early 70s was contributing to the development of transgender brains. This was the use of injected estrogen in the mother to help prevent miscarriage. My mother went through miscarriages twice that I know of and more than likely was administered estrogen during my development. I suspect that she had a miscarriage before I was conceived. She also had one before my sister. Anyway this artificially induced estrogen flood was very likely the reason my brain became female after my sex was already developed as male. My mother thought she was going to have a girl but they had to hurriedly come up with a boys name because they were not planning on having a boy. She chose John but was quickly vetoed by my father. I think she said that she had picked out Mary as a girl’s name but I’m not 100% sure.

      I’d like to check them out but unfortunately their website is either outdated or not mobile friendly. I can’t navigate the site or download the pdf. It’s also refusing to let me see the map for some reason.

      If you Google "breast prosthetics" you should be able to find a number of shops in the UK.

      Oh the tragedy of people who are so eager to fall on their own swords. Do they not realize the insanity of their behavior?
    • Susan R
      My wife and I battle with this too.  Neither of us want to lose our kids or grandkids.  We know it's likely going to come out sometime soon and we are accepting that fact more every day.  The unpredictability of it all makes it so hard to get up one day and say, "Well, looks like today's the day!"  We acknowledge the path I'm on is never going to change but are hoping to postpone the inevitable until it's absolutely necessary.   Jay, I hope all goes well with the other side of your family.  I'm sure it will go well.   Susan R🌷

      Hi gang,  no good news this week to report.  Followed my diet and exercise regimen pretty well but despite my best efforts, I only lost 0.6lbs.  Am I hitting my second plateau since starting this life change?  Next week will be very telling...I'm sure!   I'm spending this upcoming weekend with my daughter and their family.  I saved one cheat day this month for this occasion so that certainly won't help but I'll be good about everything else this next week, otherwise.   Here are my current diet results: Last week's (based on 20 weeks) average weekly weight loss:  2.33lbs. This week's (based on 21 weeks) average weekly weight loss:  2.26lbs. 🙁👎   Here are my weight loss totals as of today Using my home scale from Oct. 5 - today:  43.0lb weight loss. Using doctors scale from Sept. 25 - today:  47.0lb weight loss.   Weight loss still needed to hit target weight: 7.0lbs   Good luck to you all on your weight and diet goals this next week! Susan R🌷

      Thanks! I saw it retweeted by Planned Parenthood and figured it was legit.

      Great news about your cousin!  Congrats to them.  Maybe this will be just the thing for you to open up to that side of the family.  I'm sure your cousin would appreciate it.  
    • AsTheCrow
      thanks! I'm optimistic.   maybe when I get out from under this depression I can actually start improving other aspects of my life.   in other news, one of my young cousins has announced she's getting married to her long-time roommate, another woman. First openly LGBTQ person in that party of my family.  I've been out for 20 years now but not with that part of the family. I haven't heard yet what the reaction has been, but I will do everything in my power to make it across the country to get to that wedding. I'm so proud of her!   sorta gives me hope that I might be able to really transition some day without getting absolutely disowned.

      I hope it works well.  😀
