Make Justin leak a sex tape with Austin Mahone. Austin has to be the bottom, though.
Lucky old bastard.
That’s a pretty poor analogy. The purpose of the hormones is presumably to get the person’s outwardly appearance to match this perceived gender — which is only because people report having discomfort over this internal conflict, a conflict which many people do report having. The surgical procedures or hormones aren’t meant to correct the discomfort itself but provide a person with peace of mind.
Response to Sigmund Freud’s Letter Regarding Homosexuality:
“‘Whether or not he remains a homosexual’ is the part most left out.
But we also don’t have to buy into the idea that gay identity is established at birth and cannot alter through analysis.”
I think you missed Freud’s point. His point is that of using analysis to (possibly) help someone with unwanted feelings regardless of whether or not the *identity* changes. While people should very well reserve the right to seek whatever treatment they desire, whether it be quackery or not, it’s important to ask the question of why a person would find it undesirable to be gay in the first place. Usually it’s the attitudes from the outside creating burdensome guilt in a person and not a discomfort that manifests from the phenomenon itself — which is one of the reasons it doesn’t qualify as a disorder and is no longer included in any contemporary DSM (so your use of “symptoms” is also dated).
