I’m in my early twenties and starting to question more things and develop my ppinions. I’m struggling to find many unbiased resources around people being transgender (eecommendations welcome!).

I’m not trying to start a debate but probably will. In my opinion if we didn’t make things so “boys are this, girls are this” from early childhood, then would people feel the need to assign a different gender to themselves? Also in my opinion I don’t feel you can change your sex. You can change your appearance and body but it’s the same as dying your hair - you’re always really what you were born with.

My question is what sort of group do those beliefs put me in? And are they controversial opinions?

PS. I really hope this post doesn’t offend anyone. I’m just trying to learn more and I’m curious to understand and develop my opinions.

OP, you need to pop across to the Sex and Gender side of the feminism board, and search for a thread called “Break it down for me”. It will cover all your questions.

Op I'm not far away from your thoughts. If we keep treating children /babies so differently then we must expect problems.
I'm not in any group, just a feminist who hates gendering
