From a review of scientific twin studies..
https://genderanalysis.net/2018/03/perv ... dysphoria/

“significant and consistent evidence for the role of innate genetic factors in the development of both cisgender and transgender identities, a negligible role for shared environmental factors, and a small potential role for unique environmental factors.”

Angelina Jolie's daughter is apparently 'changing gender' (meaning taking lots of drugs and hormones), paid for by the self-absorbed, PC mother.
PC is not harmless. It's extremely harmFUL. It's self-absorbed, self-serving hypocrisy at its worst, and children are paying the price for these conceited wankers to get their virtue-signalling jollies.

I think you missed my point.

In your own dealings with mental disorders, have you ever considered yourself contagious, are you patient zero in an outbreak of melancholia somewhere?
In my experience, I haven't observed yet where I have ever caused another person to share my delusions while I was having them. However, I am usually on meds and not having delusions (except for occasional episodes that seem to break through the meds once in a scarce while). I assume if I were a teacher and having delusions, they would take me aside and not allow me to continue. I know whenever I have delusions people are pretty quick to get meds in me, sometimes even putting me in the mental hospital for a while.

Now I don't know if there is a substantive difference between a person thinking they are female when they are not versus thinking aliens have taken over the world when I am now pretty sure they haven't (or at least have no evidence of it). I don't think I've ever been gender dysphoric at least not to the point where I wanted to become a female. I do recall having a brief phase where I imagined my body being a female one but it didn't go very far from occasional flights of fancy. A childhood friend of mine dressed up in his mom's clothing a couple times (that I know of) just to goof around from time to time. He's now married to a female and has kids. I would imagine he's glad he didn't have a sex change.

I was trying to tie your post back in with the original topic of the thread and whether transgender people should be allowed to teach.
