I wonder what a brain scan would tell me, as I've been questioning my gender for a long time.

Thanks for this. I would love to have something like this done... not that it would even make a bit of difference anymore. I've always wondered what caused my life-long struggle with gender identity dysphoria. And there was always sort-of this nagging fear in the back of my mind that it was the result of some icky Freudian complex thing... yuck!!!

If I had this sort of MRI done, & it came back that my brain actually resembled a female brain more-so than a male brain, then I would at least have the comfort of knowing there was some genuine physiological basis for it all. There again... not that it would make one bit of difference at this late stage of my life. But it would be just nice to know...

Who you change who you are now if it showed you had a female brain?

I presume you were referring to my reply? No not one iota. I'm an old man now. But my life has been pretty-much a train wreck (much of it caused by yours truly.) So finding out that I do (did) have a female brain, inside my male body, would at least give me something I could point to as a rationale (an excuse?) for all of the ugliness.

Of course, the test could backfire too. It could tell me I have a normal male brain. And then I'd be stuck with the notion that it was all just some icky Freudian complex... yuck! Come to think of it... maybe it's just as well I won't have the test... Thanks for asking though!

Well... actually... I believe the answer may well be yes. I'm on a private website: Bigender.net. It's not a particularly active forum... nothing like PC. But most of the members who are currently posting there consider themselves to be Dissociative to one degree or another. I'm actually the "odd man out", so to speak, in that I'm not. Plus I'm also a lot older than most of the other members, at least those who are active. I don't post a lot over there. But I check back in periodically to see what's new.

I wondered the same thing AC2. Cause I've got to tell you, the female alters think in ways that I can't begin to wrap my head around.

Hi Guy`s ,

You can not ignore science and the progress being made in the sturdy of dysphoria.

That is what the scan will prove , our thought process towards our need to be sex and not out born sex.

We keep getting closer everyday , in time , I predict dysphoria will be a thing of the past .

That not child born need to suffer such a fate.

IF the child is mentally the wrong sex and has proven action in reference to the mind sex , with the consent of therapist and doctors , the child and parents , transition could begin before puberty and eliminating ant dysphoria at all , plus a fast healing time and a safer out come.

Always look to science , it has not let us down yet

Be free +

There are documentary videos on YouTube I have watched regarding pre-pubescent children who are beinng allowed to begin the transitioning process. I always enjoyed seeing them & wondered what my life might have been like had this kind of opportunity been available to me way back then...
