Brain scan can tell kids if they're transgender, study shows

Brain scan can tell kids if they’re transgender, study shows

A brain scan can reveal someone’s true gender, according to a new study.

Both the physical content and actions of a subject’s brain can show that they are transgender, even before they’ve started puberty. 

The study, conducted by Dr Julie Bakker at the University of Liège’s Laboratory of Neuroendocrinology, backs up research from March which showed that trans people are born that way.

Bakker explained in her study, titled Brain structure and function in gender dysphoria, that the scans’ results corroborated subjects who reported having gender dysphoria.
“We found that hypothalamic responses of both adolescent girls and boys diagnosed with gender dysphoria were more similar to their experienced gender than their birth sex,” she wrote.

The professor said that this “supports the hypothesis of a sex-atypical brain differentiation in these individuals.”

As well as this finding, Bakker also discovered that the amount of grey matter found in a brain can reveal both male and female subjects’ genders.

She said: “Grey matter volumes of both gender dysphoria groups deviated from the volumetric characteristics of their birth sex towards those of individuals sharing their gender identity.”
Bakker added that these results were exciting.


Earlier this year, researchers at the University of São Paulo’s Medical School compared the brains of trans and cisgender adults and discovered that they are significantly different.

It was found that the insula – a region of the brain – had a distinct volume depending on whether it was in the brain of a trans or cis subject.

The insula plays an important role in people’s body image, self-awareness and empathy.

Giancarlo Spizzirri, first author of the study – which was published in Scientific Reports – said that the result led them to believe that people are trans in the womb.
“We found that trans people have characteristics that bring them closer to the gender with which they identify and their brains have particularities, suggesting that the differences begin to occur during gestation,” he said in a statement.

The more research the more the science supports that transgenersism is a biological construct.

New report details just how rigged the midterms are in favor of Republicans




A new report by the Brennan Center for Justice suggests that congressional races are so heavily rigged in favor of Republicans that the United States can barely be described as a democratic republic. The upshot of their analysis is that, to win a bare majority of the seats in the U.S. House, Democrats “would likely have to win the national popular vote by nearly 11 points.”

To put that number in perspective, neither party achieved an 11-point popular vote win in the last several decades. The last time this happened, according to the Brennan Center, was 1982, when a deep recession led the opposition Democrats to a 269 seat majority against President Reagan’s Republicans.

This is wrong and we need to do everything in our power to end this injustice against the American people.

So proud to be a liberal!

So proud to be a liberal! why?
Human rights- We have standards and believe in treating all right!
Civil rights
freedom and liberty
The right to be who you wish to be in life(trans, gay, etc or what ever)
The right to marry and love who you wish
Believe in science that has cured and helped billions of people
Believe in good infrastructure to drive our cars on
Believe in clean air, water and food. The quality of life has gone up big time because of liberal ideas.
The unions and anti-trust laws built our middle class. Thanks liberals.
Believe in sound economic policies that care about our poor and old alike.

Conservatives are like the taliban...Backwards and dumber then a box full of shit.

Letting people suffer without medical care

Letting people suffer without medical care or without the means to feed themselves is conflicting the happiness and life part of The Declaration of Independence! It is just cold and don't you think you can't find yourself within this situation at some point in your life republicans. We're better then this and you better wake up or you'll find out the hard way.

Not only this but it is unmoral to allow millions to suffer and what does it serve? The private sector has proven to fail every time it's tried in the healthcare industry and no other developed first world nation uses it...None of these nations suffer from the debt from such a fucked up system that's only purpose is to milk the consumer to the point where him or her could lose their entire life savings from a few months of care. This doesn't happen in Canada, doesn't happen in all of western Europe or any other fully developed country that uses single payer! Hundred of billions flushed down the corporate toilet just for them to want more money from you the consumer.

It is not moral or right...It doesn't need to be forced on anyone and I'd be perfectly happy to support a private sector system in parallel as many developed nations also have...But, what the republican party is pushing for is just evil..Something satan would push for for you so called Christians. Maybe you should listen to jesus and consider the reality that one pushed suffering on people while the other wanted to cure. We're not in the 18th century and we shouldn't look the other way when it comes to suffering anymore.

Could Obama have Trump arrested if he starts a war with China before January 20th?

Could Obama have Trump arrested if he starts a war with China before January 20th? Lets say he started talking about blowing up three Georges if they don't respect us on trade and China reacted with declaring war on the United states. Could Obama have him arrested for doing so before January 20th???

I think Obama would be justified in having the SS lock him in a room while he(obama) tried to make peace. This has never been needed before because most presidents elect respect the current president.
