I can sort of see what you are saying, Kw....BUT..
I think most of the time, we may be talking two things. I'm talking physically. Not mentally.
I have no doubt Laura wants to be a woman. I have no doubt Laura wants to live a woman's lifestyle and have experiences as a woman. Mentally, Laura may have convinced herself she is a woman.
For people like me, I see the truth behind it. Laura is just a gay man who has mastered feminine movements or actions. But that doesnt make Laura a woman. Laura will never be a woman, in my opinion. Laura will always be a gay man who plays woman to the extreme.
Boaz that's not a fact. That's boiling down a complex issue of human embryo development, amounts and timing of hormones, Gene's, and chromosomes.
There is no grey area. If you have a penis, you are a male. If you have a vagina, uterus and periods, you are a woman. You cant get around those FACTS. I cant believe you are denying those basic tenets. And please dont bring up the 0.0000001% of humans who are genetic defects with both --------, they dont count.
