Transgender Gene Found?


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Can we recognize a transgender person by taking a look at their DNA? Cenk Uygur and also Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Inform us what you think in the comment area below.

" NEW YORK (Reuters) – While Head of state Donald Trump has thrust transgender individuals back into the conflict between conservative and also liberal values in the USA, geneticists are silently servicing a major research effort to unlock the secrets of gender identification.

A consortium of 5 research study establishments in Europe and also the United States, consisting of Vanderbilt College Medical Facility, George Washington College and also Boston Kid's Medical facility, is wanting to the genome, a person's complete collection of DNA, for clues about whether transgender individuals are born by doing this.

Twenty years of mind research have actually provided tips of an organic origin to being transgender, yet no undeniable verdicts."

      bullshit- in Saudi Arabia, if somebody is gay, they behead them
      in Iran they PROVIDE the operation to TRANS for FREE, but gay is not allowed

      Saudi does not follow the Holy Quran no where in the book does it say behead for any reason.

      J Malluf are you joking? I hope so because I’ve read it and you can’t get through 5 pages without it saying something to that nature and in 2 places it says behead. So I don’t know what your talking about. And I’m not against Islam just speaking truth.

    There are TWO genders – anything else is just sex orientation… or mental disorder…..

    To morons typing there are only two genders, atleast get your arguments straight. Transgender has nothing to do with multiple genders.

    • Posted by Orbit Master, at Reply

      So they can identify as either one that doesn’t have anything to do with the issue. We are talking about people who aren’t born with both u idiot.

      You mean like klinesfelter syndrome? The number of people born with both genitals is extremely small.

      Not multiple genders but more like multiple personalities and that is called mental illness.

      People like you who have changed their stances on significant issues weren’t really liberals to begin with.

      Bill Maher doesn’t agree with every liberal he has on his show. In fact, if he had Cenk on his show I’m sure they would probably fight over Islam…but NEITHER would change their stances on anything because someone disagreed with them.

      All these fake liberals that claimed they were once liberal but ooooooh TYT made them change their mind or SJWs…you guys were never liberals.

      I don’t see someone saying “Man, I hate white people!” then go “What an SJW, you know what…I’m a conservative now.”

      Just be honest with yourself. You identify as a conservative because you are one and are just now realizing it.

    • Posted by Keira Marschan-Hayes, at Reply

      Nick Brown transition is help – it helps significantly reduce gender dysphoria. Gender dysphoria is not treated through psychotherapy alone, and conversion therapy tends to just make things a whole lot worse

    • Posted by Nick Brown, at Reply

      Keira Marschan-Hayes If transition helps then why is the divide rate the same

    • Posted by Keira Marschan-Hayes, at Reply

      Nick Brown Gender dysphoria causes depression, often long term. When gender dysphoria is reduced, the depression often lingers. This is why people usually have transition (for gender dysphoria) and therapy (for depression). The combination of the two helps, where as conversion therapy does not.

    *So liberals admit now that sex/gender is indeed biological/genetic and not a social construct? Interesting. Glad you idiots are finally catching up to reality.*

    • Posted by abscondam, at Reply

      Roose Bolton I agree. Hence why I said you are confusing transgenderism with homosexuality. Some say it’s a mental health issue, some say it’s a sin(choice). Can… can you read? Also that’s an argument against Christianity not conservatism so you are strawmanning your own argument.

    • Posted by abscondam, at Reply

      Chelsea Jones that sex/gender is a social construct. Can any of you liberals read? Lmfao

      Supreme Imperialist I agree. They also have trouble with basic reading comprehension, apparently.

    • Posted by Nádia Nascimento, at Reply

      I dont “fail at biology”, but you fail in recognising the difference between sex and gender, which was part of what I was trying to explain to you.

    • Posted by abscondam, at Reply

      Nádia Nascimento I recognize that you think there is a difference. I understand your argument. It’s wrong. Sex/gender is biologically objective and is based on genetics. How genders should act or present themselves or their place in society are, to an extent, social/individual constructs. You are having a hard time grasping this.

    Here’s the thing: People are born gay or transgender, but it’s NOT in the genes. Identical twins can often have different sexual preferences or identities.

    These things are influenced by the “ebb and flow of hormonal shifts” within the uterus. In the same way that identical twins have different fingerprints, and their hair follicles aren’t in the exact same places.

    Being gay or transgender is a state that exists in a specific organ: The brain. It’s the most poorly understood organ in terms of how it works. Of course we know what it looks like and we know it works with electrochemical reactions, SOMEHOW. We even know which regions generally do what… But we have no clue what a “thought” is. We can make a removed heart beat with an electric pulse, but we can’t make a removed brain think of a ham sandwich.

    What I’m getting at is… Being gay or transgender is such a complex characteristic of a person that we may never understand how or why it happens. But research strongly supports (virtually proves) that it happens in the womb.

    • Posted by Sass Squash, at Reply

      TheFounderUtopia , you said: “you are neglecting the possibility that they are being altered in utero while still developing”. If you’re responding to me, then you’re neglecting that I was literally pointing out exactly that.

      Alex Arvanis and Kiel Weiss, I’m sorry, but I can simply point to the fact that identical twins (essentially clones) have different fingerprints and usually slight variances in proportions proves that NOT everything about us is in the DNA. Similarly, identical twins can each have different sexual preferences and identities. Science shows there can be a genetic predisposition for homosexuality or transgenderism, but NO GENE has been identified as the “on/off switch” for homosexuality or transgenderism.

      Delilah, you ask for sources. (Which cites its own sources) and also this cartoon, which is a bit outdated:

    • Posted by scotty rose, at Reply

      It’s not a choice, unless you’re bisexual. I’m a gay man, and I’ve tired to have sex with women. The bits just don’t work when I do that. but put me in a room with another man, And all the bits work fine. I couldn’t have sex with a woman, even if I wanted to.

    • Posted by Vynjira, at Reply

      +Sass Squash “The study found that one third of identical twin pairs in the sample were both transgender: 13 of 39 (33%) monozygotic or identical pairs of assigned males and 8 of 35 (22.8%) pairs of assigned females. Among dizygotic or non-identical twin pairs, there was only 1 of 38 (2.6%) pairs where both twins were trans. The significant percent of identical twin pairs where both twins are trans, and the virtual absence of dizygotic twins (raised in the same family at the same time, but not genetically identical) where both were trans, if both sets were raised in different families would provide evidence that transgender identity is significantly influenced by genetics.”

      Welp so much for your ‘theory’ of it not being in the genes.

    • Posted by Sass Squash, at Reply


      “Welp” Maybe you should read what I wrote. Quoting:

      “Science shows there can be a genetic predisposition for homosexuality or transgenderism, but NO GENE has been identified as the “on/off switch” for homosexuality or transgenderism.”

      The paragraph you quoted supports exactly that. Only 1/3 of identical twins of a trans twin are trans. Of course, 33% is a lot, which means there IS a genetic predisposition, as I’ve already acknowledged. But if it was purely genetic, it would be 100%, where both twins would either be trans, or not. (Or homosexual or not.)

      And please remember my position is that people are BORN with their sexual identities or attractions. My daughter is gay and awesome.

    Actually Cenk, there are a lot of teenagers that do just wake up and decide they’re “trans” because their friends do it, and they get to feel special and oppressed. It’s a huge trend in middle/high school. These kids are just confused though, they’re not actually trans and hopefully they eventually realize they’re just boring regular people and they don’t always have to be a victim of something.

    • Posted by Nova Caesar, at Reply

      Andrea Kae I graduated in 2014. It wasn’t common at all. Pretty sure I was like the first person in my school who actually came out as trans. By that point I already worked a job and paid rent for my own place, but eh. Being trans isnt a trend, at least not one I’m aware of.

      Andrea Kae My mom is actually a teacher lol, it’s not common where she works. Maybe instead of it being a trend where friends”copy” each other they could all actually be trans and hang together for support? Cliques do exist in most highschools.

    • Posted by Andrea Kae, at Reply

      Nova Caesar no it’s definitely a trend, I see it every single day and it’s very obvious. Just like how every rich 20 year old girl who’s never struggled is a feminist who hates all men and thinks she’s discriminated against. People want to be oppressed victims because they’re not being interesting on their own.
