T Gender-not-sex is a Dysfunctional System

For academic and scientific integrity, trans person varying sex topics need to be allowed, acknowledged, and spoken specifically.

“Research Topics Inhibited by Transgender Paradigm” is my Letter to the Editor in “Archives of Sexual Behavior,” a peer-reviewed scientific journal focusing on human sexuality, published June of 2020. Here is the copy the publisher shares. And for those with access, here is its location within the journal.

Living in another gender role is very different from needing to be the other sex, which used to be more clear in “transgenderism” and “transsexualism,” both of which socially owned their sexuality.

In recent years, however—even though the phenomena remain—trans person sex topics have been morphing into a gender-not-sex terminology, even in professional periodicals, which then makes it difficult to discuss or study issues of a trans person who needs to be of a different gender vs. sex, who may have sexual response needs of the same or other sex, who may have differing issues of gender vs. sex identity, who will live and attempt to integrate into society as “themselves” while in a self-destructive, social denial of a sexuality that cannot truly be hidden, etc.

Much of this is in response to a hot-headed, cancel culture core—fearing social rejection of a despised sex-and-gender non-binarism—that has maligned dissent.

This is a social ideology of the times swaying and skewing science.

How to Interpret Me—Phase 3, Primary Transsexual

To understand where I’m coming from, it is important to note there is variation in how trans people see themselves as they go through phases in transition adjustment and in being transsexual or transgender. Transition never ends; it is an on-going evolutionary process in

  • gender swings,
  • how we may present,
  • how we view what we really are or can become,
  • how we view the way we fit into society,
  • how we view the way we are taken,
  • how we may sabotage our own efforts,
  • how we view our own identity about sex or gender, and
  • denial.

How one states and presents will also vary by ones own primary sex or gender needs and whether nor not s/he is involved in supporting a social ideology.

I am a transsexual, in transition since 1981, who has learned the importance of being our true selves with our sexuality. (More technically, a “phase 3, primary transsexual.”)

I have been in this since 1977, involved through the decades in various ways, as a psychotherapist / social worker, mutual support, speaking, interfacing with medical staff, etc., with a focus on stealth transsexualism.

Sex Educators and Researchers Can Bring T Sex Out of the Closet

My letter to ASB cites ideology and intimidation concerns from researchers / scholars concerned about academic integrity and scientific precision.

I believe many researchers and universities fear the inaccurate and public slam of radical transgender paradigm activism, and to avoid same adopt the principles of the transgender paradigm with its emphasis on and gender role in society, systematically minimizing, renaming or suppressing issues of physical sex and T sexuality, such as these:

  • the sex someone needs to be,
  • that the need to be the other sex does not move with the need to be another gender, is inversely correlated,
  • that if pressed about sex identity in particular (not gender identity), a transgender person may say that’s offensive then may state a sex identity of the other sex, without wanting to actually be of that other physical sex,
  • that in transgenderism, “man” and “woman” do not in practice mean the same thing as “male” and “female,”
  • autogynephilia,
  • there is a meaningful difference between needing to live in the other gender role and needing to be the other actual sex, and terminologies should relate,
  • sex identity as well as gender identity,
  • transsexualism, and
  • gender orientation as well as sex orientation (transgenders finding love and sex, and also people who are attracted to sex-and-gender non-binarism, such as in gynandromorphophilia).

Minimizing or avoiding clear mention of things such as these implies that there is something wrong with them which I believe there cannot be, must not be.

As transsexual, someone who has always needed to be the other actual sex, with a needed sexual response of the other sex…the gender-not-sex social movement for trans people is personally demeaning.

Sex researchers and educators should be able to bring T sex issues out of the closet, study and state them clearly.

T Gender-not-sex is a Dysfunctional System

Society hates sex-and-gender non-binarism. The idea of a woman with male sexuality or a man with female sexuality does not compute for most people who find their own sense of gender or sex identity challenged. Transgenders (change gender but don’t want to change sex) then demand sex issues be avoided, only talk directly about gender role or sometimes sex orientation. Society then goes along with the demand out of false “compassion,” because they don’t want to talk about T sex issues, anyway.

That is a socially dysfunctional, is sexually oppressive, and hurts all trans people.
