    If she's not saying no, not resisting, not in any sign of distress it's not rape

    Not a bad thing.....unless you're (generalized not you personally) whining about it. And then the whinner is the one making it a bad thing. And then we make fun of them because they are the ones turning it into a bad thing.

    Real Men

    You know what I find real hilarious about the whole "fruity drink" thing? Those fruity drinks have way more alcohol in them that beer does, even before we look at the watered down American crap.

    If she's not saying no, not resisting, not in any sign of distress it's not rape

    Do not get me wrong. I'm all for primal sex. But consented to primal sex. A lack of saying no or making resistance is not consent. Those actions, or lack thereof, could be due to fear, for safety or life. As to signs of distress, the person who is the attacker might not be recognizing such...

    Real Men

    Real men don't give a airborne fornication about what other men think "real men" are supposed to be. If you have to try to force what the definition of "real men" is to others, then your masculinity is already too fragile.

    Does society say a straight person can turn gay but a gay person can't turn straight?

    You are working on a major misconception here. The claim is not that a person can change from straight to gay. The claim is that they are already gay, and have been suppressing that. And with support they can stop lying to themselves and simply be whatever they are. As for conversion therapy...

    Your trans-exclusive dating and sexual practices are transphobic.

    It doesn't even matter if you are not disagreeing, but pointing out something else, it seems. Point out where she has said that the one brain section that handled identity and not orientation, suddenly handles orientation and not identity, and she then claims that we are not paying attention...

    Your trans-exclusive dating and sexual practices are transphobic.

    Do you ever bother to realize who you are responding to and what they actually say? Or do you just look at the words and decide what the person must be saying whether those words match that idea or not? One would think that by now, you would recognize that I have been a consistent supporter of...

    Your trans-exclusive dating and sexual practices are transphobic.

    I am asking about YOUR words, YOUR arguments. Do you not see where you said in one post that the amygdala was the seat of gender identity, and then said in another post in the exact same thread (this one) that the hypothalamus was the seat of gender identity? I posted your own words right there...

    Your trans-exclusive dating and sexual practices are transphobic.

    Also as a separate issue, you still have not been understanding what I have been asking you. Let me try to lay this out even more. Mind you, what I am putting out is what I am suspecting has happened, and I have been asking you if that actually happen, and not questioning the validity of what...

    Your trans-exclusive dating and sexual practices are transphobic.

    No you didn't explain where you contridicted yourself. So let's try again. First you said: Thus claiming that the amygdala was the center for gender identity, and the hypothalamus was the center for sexual orientation. Then you said: So which is it? These are your own words contradicting each...

    Your trans-exclusive dating and sexual practices are transphobic.

    First, even a fraction of a degree difference at the source can have a vast difference in the arrival location. So small differences can have a significant impact. Not saying that it necessarily does in this case, but neither can that possibility be ignored. But as far as what the post is...

    Your trans-exclusive dating and sexual practices are transphobic.

    Not a single thing in what you quoted from that article supported either the amygdala or the hypothalamus as the centers of either sexual orientation nor gender identity. I don't know if it is somewhere else in the article, but it's not there in your quote. Nor does any of that entire post do...

    Your trans-exclusive dating and sexual practices are transphobic.

    What I'm not getting right now is you not addressing your conflicting statements, that two of us have brought up now, nor addressing two conflicting pieces of evidence, both from legitimate sources.

    Your trans-exclusive dating and sexual practices are transphobic.

    Granted, and I am not saying that what was found 30 years ago is wrong. But also look at how much we have learned and disproven from what was claimed just 30 years ago. Hell look at how many studies that even 10 years ago have been since overturned or discovered to be faulty or wrong. So I don't...

    Your trans-exclusive dating and sexual practices are transphobic.

    I am not making a point on whether or not one affects the other or not. I am asking if you have ever bothered to make that distinction of which part of the brain affects which condition before this thread, or instead have you only been putting out the argument that the gay brain or the trans...

    Your trans-exclusive dating and sexual practices are transphobic.

    The article he posted, which is from Scientific America, and not some conservative anti-LBGT source, does indeed say that it was activity in the amygdala that was common between gay men and straight women. He has provided a legitimate source, and you are not addressing the source, nor providing...

    Your trans-exclusive dating and sexual practices are transphobic.

    In that article, there are three referenced papers that are, by title at least, indicating that identity is determined by the hypothalamus. Which is contrary to the article that you posted. So your question of seems to run back to you as well.

    Your trans-exclusive dating and sexual practices are transphobic.

    First of all, if this is what you learned 30 years ago, what have you done to make sure that nothing new has been learned since then, especially since this is a newer field and is getting more attention and study of late? That said, I am trying to determine if you have ever before in these...

    Your trans-exclusive dating and sexual practices are transphobic.

    Has anyone ever bothered to do an MRI or whatever they use to look at a brain before a person declares a gender identity, or sexual orientation for that matter? If the claim is that they have discovered that trans people have a brain or portion of the brain that is more similar to the bio...

    Your trans-exclusive dating and sexual practices are transphobic.

    I did not put forth an idea here yet, at least not as far as this line of my questioning to you goes.. Don't mix me up with @Aristaeus. So my next question is, is this thread the first time you have put forth, to the best of your recollection, the concepts of the amygdala and the hypothalamus...
