If you accept transsexuals, should you also accept transracials?

Posted by: Voxol

If a person is allowed to change their sex, should they also be allowed to change their race?

Change their race? How might a person adjust the specifics of their DNA and why might they do so? You are aware that the differences between white and black people are physical, not genetic, right? Black people and white people both belong to the human "race".

While I don't agree with it, the argument is that race is a social construct, like gender. There is actually support for this among scientists and sociologists.

The social aspect of race is a social construct. Skin tone is genetic. Height is genetic. Gender is genetic. If we can change gender, why not genetic ancestry? No one should tell me I wasn't supposed to have been born a Neanderthal. ...Or a pony.

Transgenders don't god damn exist, sex is a physical thing. So what that there's females whom act masculine and vice versa? You're simply just making gender more complicated than it should be. I don't care if you're a male that acts more feminine than normal, you'really STILL a male like it or not. This transracial nonsense uses the same stupidity as the Transgender nonsense.

@triangle: Transsexuals exist. Medical science has long been able to change sex; not sure why you're unaware of that... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sex_reassignment_therapy

I dont have an opinion in accepting it really. But this question is a little bias on the fact that transsexual is a real phenomenon that pccurs and people struggle with and go through every day. Transracial is not a real thing. I have a feeling this is a false parallel and there is a slight possibility this poll topic is feuled by transgenderphobia.

Triangle.128k: Why do you care if other people want to change their gender or sex? You dont have to rail against them and be mean it isnt hurting you so why are you getting mad? It sounds like projection to me is there something your not telling yourself? Its completely allright to feel insecure in your masculinity or femininity and very natural to want to transition dont be ashamed. Thats the only explaination i can think of for why this is so important to you. Otheewise i cant think of any reason you would care so deeply about whether peoples parts match their pronouns.

SEX and GENDER are two different things people.

I believe I was supposed to be born Japanese/Korean. It's hard to change skin color, but at the very least, we can explore different cultures to learn more about who we believe we are. Personally, to expand my knowledge, I'm learning Japanese and Korean (Like my friend who gets made fun of for learning Korean and writing it on her snapchat)
