Gender isn't alterable- we're either female or male

benshapirohero

Alright, this is my first post but don't go easy on me. Let's get right down to it. 1. Quite simply, when we're born we are either male or a female. 2. Having false beliefs about our gender identity can be classified as a disorder. Think of an anorexic who thinks (s)he's fat when (s)he's really not. I believe people with any type of disorder deserve compassion. This includes not indulging their false beliefs about themselves, just as we shouldn't go around telling anorexics their fat...

She says that most of the time braces are cosmetic and they should be seen the same as other uneeded cosmetic procedures like a nose job or implants. I...

The human will power ( mind) can affect time and space based phenomenon of our world

tahiralmas
Bensen

The human willpower is far more superior than its per-considered role of survival of human body and it has power to severely affect time and spaced phenomenons metaphysically beyond rules of our physical world. Following are my evidence in support of this claim 1. As a simple rule, If willpower (mind ) is sub product of body whose main function is to play its part for the survival of human body then it can not damage and annihilate human body itself but we often see that when human will...
