I think i talked to this guy once, a phd student at ubc who spouts all sorts of bullshit. So if hes fully female he'll be producing eggs and babies any time now, right?

So we're just gonna ignore mammalian gamete production? Honey, you've mutilated yourself, but you're still biologically male.

I am so distressed and kind of ashamed of how this nonsense has even seeped into hard sciences.

Well, someone doesn't understand the difference between genotype and phenotype. Pretty embarrassing for a PhD student in biology. He's also ignoring that the changes in secondary sex characteristics during ''transition'' are not natural, but surgically/medically altered.

And yet no bigot would argue that a ribbon eel is still a male after losing its yellow stripe and laying eggs.

Cool. I'll stop labelling a TiM as male when they can generate their own ova. Not transplants. Their own eggs, without any surgical intervention.

It's their own critia.

Taking estrogen does not mean your hormone profile matches a woman's. If women only produced estrogen, there would never be a pregnancy. They really know nothing about female biology.

Oh, FFS, again your arguments, TIM with a PhD in "phenotype development"*, don't address the fact that, potentially, approx. half of the human population, can be impregnated by, potentially, the approx. other half of the human population. Which, of course, has enormous consequences for the first half.

*This TIM is getting a PhD in "phenotype development"???? This is something to watch for...of course TIMs are going to seek out degrees from woke universities in disciplines that affect public understanding and policy of sex, gender, and transgenderism. What fills me with dread us what happens when such TIMs and their trans ideological allies fill all such disciplines.

Breaking news: humans are fish. For my next baby I will simply lay my eggs somewhere in the bathtub and my nigel will fertilize them. No more morning sickness, hooray!

No more morning sickness, round ligament pain, sciatica, pelvic prolapse, preclampsia, gestational diabetes, c-section, 4th degree tearing, cardiomyopathy, etc.etc. all these men wanting uterus transplants have no idea what they're asking for.

He is wrong right from the get go with the "phenotype constructed from traits" BS. He is talking about secondary sex characteristics, not primary sex characteristics. Conflating secondary sex characteristics with sex is an old TRA trick to confuse people who aren't biologists. This guy is lying through his teeth if he actually is a biologist or dangerously misinformed if he isn't. You cannot change your actual sex by changing your "phenotype" aka your secondary sex characteristics.

It simply cannot be changed with the technology we have today, and I don't see any progress that would suggest that things could get better.

All these procedures are really harmful. The entire organism is damaged when it receives large amounts of the wrong hormones and blocks its own.

There's no good reason for it either.

One must not forget that this procedure was intended as a last resort for the insane. Capitalists, the insane, and body modification fetishists have reduced medicine to absurdity.
