How Many Transgenders In America? 0.006% = About 20,000. Total. [CBD]

Commenter Golfman provided this very interesting link: Interactive map: Census estimates for transgender population by state. A quick perusal of both the high and low estimates gives me a very rough calculation of about 6 transgenders/100,000 Americans. Following the link to the Census Bureau paper yields about the same number. And yes, that is a very small number. Assuming a population of about 320,000,000, that means that you will probably never meet a transgender, and if you don't live in a particularly dense area you might not ever be within 50 feet of one.

Just to put it in perspective:

Albinism runs at about 1/17,000 worldwide.

Achondroplasia, the most common form of Dwarfism, occurs in 1 in 15,000 to 40,000 newborns.

Male breast cancer represents 1% of all breast cancers, 2,600 new cases diagnosed in the U.S. each year. That's at least 6-8 times the number of transgenders born each year.

According to Wikipedia, 6,500 U.S. Military veterans committed suicide in 2012.
That's at least 20 times the number of new transgenders.

And shall we look at the anorexia rate? "Anorexia is estimated to occur in 0.9% to 4.3% of women and 0.2% to 0.3% of men in Western countries at some point in their life." Why Anorexia? Because it is the most similar example of "Body Dysmorphia" I can think of. Transgenders look in the mirror and see something that isn't there, or they obsessively wish that the image was different. How does that differ from Anorexia?

Yet Transgenderism is celebrated and protected, but Anorexia is treated aggressively, because when left untreated, anorexics die! Of course Transgenders die too, mostly by suicide (41% attempt or succeed).

But by all means, let us celebrate and enable these profoundly disturbed Americans, instead of providing comprehensive psychiatric and medical treatment to overcome their significant, life-threatening illness.

9 I have come to the conclusion that there are two major elements driving American party politics:
Stealing money in significant amounts and calling it legal; and

Promoting electing and protecting politicians who have horrible skeletons in their closets so they are completely controllable when they get to high office.

With those two goads I would not be surprised at anything coming out of DC or any state capitol.

18 I think that some research is in order. There's an assumption that has now become used as if it's a fact that all the other sexual orientations are always in born.

This may be true. I'm not arguing that either way. But some genuine and non-agenda driven research needs to be done to put this question to rest.

And it is a question. Yes for some people it appears to be from birth but for others it can be acquired.

Because of the hate that the other sexually oriented radicals can stir up, research (real research) has been stymied and slowed to a screeching halt because somehow that's a hate crime.

It's not in their interests to find the truth but it is in general for the culture, the country and the world to finally determine what causes someone to have a sexual attraction to other than the "Normal" one of Male+Female.

I don't really care either way what is discovered but it needs to be examined. Who knows, it might turn out that doing so will quiet some of the most vociferous opponents.

I'm guessing, no one will be pleased with the results and both sides will deny it but at least the facts will be out there.

22 The potty wars are not about the rights of the transgendered, it is a new front in the Cultural Marxism war in which the pillars of traditional society are destroyed in order to usher in a new socialist regime. It will not stop here but continue until they have accomplished this goal.

CULTURAL MARXISM:
The gradual process of destroying all traditions, languages, religions, individuality, government, family, law and order in order to re-assemble society in the future as a communist utopia. This utopia will have no notion of gender, traditions, morality, god or even family or the state. The Philosophy was proven not to Work already by Vladimir Lenin as he tried in vein to control and subjugate the people. He admitted before he died that capitalism was the only true system in which people understand how to live with each other.... Lenin knew that there were a few western Idiots who kept spreading the communist ideas long after Lenin gave up.... he called these people useful idiots as they had more emotion than brains and could be used to subvert the western states for a military takeover in the future as the citizens would already be perverted and sick and weak from poisonous ideas, decadent lusts and mindless entertainment.

29 Saw "XMen: Apocalypse" yesterday.


Though I didn't have much hope for it,

I actually liked it quite a bit.

More so than the previous 2 XMen movies in this cycle/reboot/remake/gamisch


The story is very lean this time around and doesn't waste any time at all setting up the characters and conflicts. Origins and introductions are kept to a minimum.

The acting is solid. And the actor playing the Apocalypse character who could've been quite the cornball, is very good as the near-god calmly and assuredly going about his business.

There are some spectacular action set pieces that are very well done.


If you're not suffering from superhero fatigue, you'll enjoy this latest XMEN outing.

I guess my only complaint, is more aimed at DC Comics who've been wasting their time turning Superman into a whiny emo in the movies. When they could've been establishing their 2nd tier characters to good effect.

The most spectacular character in XMen: Apocalypse with the best action sequences is "Quicksilver".

Who is a complete "Flash" ripoff, right down to the positive, confident, yet spritely attitude.

As Flash was one of the comic book characters I enjoyed most, I've been kinda hoping to see a good take on him in the movies.

I just have. Only it wasn't in a "Flash" movie.

But, I guess at this point I'll have to do with the mopey, whiny trannie emo that will be DC Movies Flash.

*sigh*

48 I think normalizing deviant/psychologically unhealthy behavior is a recruitment tool. It becomes fashionable. Right now it seems to be fashionable to be gay, Next it will become fashionable to be transgendered. It removes the social constraints and encourages people to open themselves up to behaviors that can end up in suicide.


The father of lies always wants you dead. Always. Leftism always leads to death, not life.


What if we normalized and encouraged anorexia? Or decided that psychotic breaks were the new normal? We would get a generation of mentally ill people literally starving themselves to death.

61 CBD - That teeny, tiny number is EXACTLY why the Left has veered into Gender Identity. With transgenders they want to go from one biological sex to the other, period.

However, once you switch from sex change-->gender identity, it opens up the floodgates to all sorts of additional people, the whole "gender fluid" crowd who have (so far) identified 50+ genders. Well, now we're talking about a much larger population of people to be treated as a protected class - and *that* is where the action is, civil rights, lawsuits, etc.

Seems like this crows wants the rules to be: if I come to work in chinos and an izod, call be John Smith, but if I come in wearing a dress and heels, then you must refer to me as Princess Peaches. No hormones or surgeries needed (heck, maybe John doesn't even shave to be Peaches).

83 In some states it is illegal for a psychologist or counselor to talk to a gay person in such a was as to suggest that this behavior is not healthy and might be subject to modification. Even if the patient is expressly going to the therapist for that very purpose.


Soon it will be illegal for a therapist to tell the parents of a 4 year old that there are better choices than treating a little boy as if he were a girl. And also that only really screwed up parents do that.

What do you think of the Flash TV series? I've only seen a handful, but he seems pretty decent as a person, and Season One had Gorilla Grodd!

Gorilla. Grodd.

Posted by: acethepug at May 28, 2016 10:39 AM (Z6yF/)



I like the TV Flash a lot. I just wish as mindful says below that the efx were of a higher caliber, but...TV.

I thought this season the writing toward the end suffered a bit, though I liked that idea that they'll be doing their version of "The Flashpoint Paradox" next season.

It would be kind of cool if they spread its effects throughout the other CW shows in their limited DC Universe, with lots of crossovers.

But, I doubt they have the money of writing talent for that.


and yeah, I love that they have Gorilla Grodd.

A. Supeintelligent Gorilla. Villain.

That shows that the makers of Flash understand the idea of a comic book show.

Plus, when a wee tad, I always looked forward to Grodd's appearances in the Flash comic.

MOAR GRODD.

Remember when cutting off perfectly healthy limbs was a thing in the 90s early 2000s? No, I'm not joking. It's a mental illness. Usually the afflicted would hack it off the body part themselves or damage it enough where it could not be saved.

However, the NHS was actually performing these surgeries until there was an uproar. How fck sick is that????

What drives left-wingers angry is the thought of a well-to-do suburban family

A well-off, self-sufficient family does not need the state. Therefore, since leftism enshrines the state as the be-all and end-all of human existence, the intact nuclear family must be destroyed. By any means necessary.

Sid was the point on a lot of Hillary's anti-Obama shenanigans during the 2008 election, including starting Birtherism. Because of this, the Obamans insisted that Sid not join Hillary at State, but Hillary let him join her own private spy network.

If there's a hint of Sid being guilty of anything, I can't see Obama/Lynch holding back Comey.

Big Known Unkown: What's on the 30,000 "private" e-mails that Hillary insisted not be put at risk of getting accessed. 30,000 divided by 4 years at State works out to about 20 to 25 a day. That's a lot of recipes.

validates this form of acting out.

They actually have a name for the mental illness that causes transgenderism. It is called gender dysphoria.

Whatever that means.

Also, it's cool to appear tolerant, and it's now tolerant to be bi/'questioning' instead of saying you've settle down for boring old heterosexuality. Kinda like the college students in that Triumph the insult comic dog video where he was asking them point blank is one of the guys was a man (IIRC), and you could see them struggling with wanting to state the obvious vs. what they've been taught they can't say, especially not while someone is filming.

Hogan is bank rolled by the guy who founded PayPal, a gay man who gawker outed just because they wanted to. Name is Theil.

Gawker is a liberal crap site btw, and Theil, the PayPal guy, is a libertarian, who happens to be backing Trump. I'm told that's not possible for a libertarian to back Trump, but there you are.

Once Theils role in the Gawker case became known, the progs are losing their shit. Now the guy who runs ebay, a committed prog, is determined to support Gawkers appeal. Becuase he hates Theils politics, therefore attacking him personally for no reason through Gawker is ok

More importantly, how many convicted sex offenders are there in this country, who will now be able to go into the same bathrooms, changing rooms, and shower rooms that your 12 year old daughter uses.

I have no problem with transgenders living their lives the way they see fit, until they intrude on the safety of other people. These bathroom mandates are asking to be exploited by child molesters and rapists. Public restrooms are already trolling grounds for sex offenders. Now people won't be able to throw them out.

There was one occasion when we were at a restaurant in Santa Monica late at night, two painfully bad transvestites sat down in the next booth. They were both in vintage outfits, like something Lois Lane would have worn in the original Superman TV series. This alone would have made actual women stand out but these two were both at least six feet tall and one had a noticeable five o'clock shadow.

We kept looking around for a hidden camera. This pair was so strange, like Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis doing a test run for 'Some Like It Hot' to see if they'd fool anyone but choosing clothes decades out of date.

That was actually kind of amusing. Mostly, the ones you spot are just sad.

What's changed is that you cannot now throw them out of the women's bathroom for being revealed as a man. And they want to codify letting Joe Pervert into the women's locker room next to your daughter because he 'self identifies' as a woman.

That's what everyone always leaves out: this is not just bathrooms. Its showers, locker rooms, changing rooms.

The X-Men were always kind of in a separate universe from the rest of the comics, even though they were allegedly part of the same world.

They've always been a none-too-subtle allegory of racism and bigotry, and not a poorly done one in some ways. But Singer turned the entire franchise into a big fat gay allegory which was truly obnoxious. Especially given that he's one of the many homosexuals who prefer their sex on the young side.

Tribbiani's approach can work, and I used a variant of it once, but it was on a lady I'd known for a while.....

She, after running a marathon in support of some charity or other: 'I feel great right now, but I need a shower, and tomorrow, I know I'll be sore and exhausted.'

Me: 'If I had a nickel for every time a woman said that to me....'

She: **blushing far too easily for a lady over 30***

Me: 'So, how about it?'

It worked. I might have gotten my face slapped, but she had a sense of humor, and there was a certain amount of tension there between us that needed to be brought out into the open.

339 i don't know about the numbers. I don't doubt that the Census Bureau is correct./ But when you start letting five year olds decide that they are a girl--regardless of their plumbing, you are going to see some bad choices.

A couple of weeks ago in the midst of another Los Angeles Times promotions of all things transgender and progressive etc. a Los Angeles Unified School District official was quoted as saying that ten years ago there were something like 40 students in the LAUSD (one of the biggest school districts in the country) who "self identified" as transgender. Today, there are one thousand such students in the district. That's a 25 fold increase in just 10 years.

I'm sorry folks, but physical biology doesn't change that fast. What goes on in people's heads can change that fast. If it's trendy to be TG, some folks are going to jump on the trend.

Posted by: Comanche Voter at May 28, 2016 12:57 PM (Sda6L)

I'm gonna hafta call bullshit on this statistic. HTF do they know when a baby is born that it is "transgender"? I don't think they know what causes gender confusion, any more than they've found a fabulous "gay" gene.

When they say "Anyone can be male or female, depending on what they choose to be," think about what that means down the road. Why are they saying that when they want to erase gender altogether? Because it's a step.

Well, that's what they used to do in, based on the advice from some nutjob pervert doctor at John Hopkins until they realized the disastrous consequences. I don't think they do it, anymore, but maybe it will make a comeback with all this obsession with tranny shit. I need to dig up an old book thread I did on this topic. Book written about a dude born with damaged genitalia, parents advised to turn him into a woman, snip snip went the surgeons, pump pump went the hormones, make him wear dresses and play with dolls, don't worry, everything will be fine, and guess what, "girl" grows up feeling alienated and the wrong gender.

375 It's interesting, because soon-to-be-mister had a similar conversation last night. I told him what I was looking for in a man was a leader (somebody's got to steer this ship, and although I can gives some direction, ultimately he has to be man enough to take the wheel. Or whatever it is they steer ships with.) At the end of the day, the buck stops with him.


Also I want a protector. I want someone to stand guard over me, protect me, defend me, and be in my corner. I want a man who looks out for his woman.


When asked what he wanted, soon-to-be-mister said "someone to make him lasagna."

Men like physically exciting women who are beautiful and can make them feel good inside and out.

So we make dumb mistakes and go for the outlaw biker and the stacked brunette who can't do math. Because they're the easy choices that fit these desires.

What we really need is someone who will inspire and help us be better than who we are, who will share wisdom and life with us, who will stay true and help us through the best and worst times without wavering, and will walk into eternity with us.

As Taylor said it was allegory for civil rights, and then gays under Brian Singer. The shouting marchers waving signs was a device that Watchmen and Incredibles used, but they were smart enough not to linger on it.

?Angel? in ?X-men 2? had a dad who lamented "Why can't I have a normal boy?". All the subtlety of a sledgehammer. When he revealed his beautiful wings, I murmured to a friend "Oh god, what a hideous monster!". The movie, as best as I remember it, was begging to be riffed on.

The liberal pathos and animus is that the world is filled with caustic people who's position is unthinkable and entrenched. My fear is that they look at a Westboro Baptist mouth-breathers and say "Look there is a conservative."

I am hopeful for the future and the voice the internet has given to conservatives and moderates. Milo Y said that he champions free speech enough that "I want to give racists [extremists et al] a soapbox..." I cringe at the 3-second soundbite material, but that's exactly where the argument jumps from. Sunlight is the best disinfectant. Racists were not formed in sunlight, and in their little cave they instinctively know they've grown to their limit. Feminists and BLM people HATE being filmed for the same reasons.

417 reached for me every time the thunder shook the house, and clung to me for safety and protection.

The little secret feminists want to deny is that women are smaller and physically weaker than men, and reach out for protection. That doesn't make women weaker than men overall, they have their strengths men can only admire and dream of. But women are like hobbits in an orc world, and no matter how much you shout "hear me roar" and read Hunger Games, that doesn't change basic human and physical nature.

Men need women, desperately, to help us be better, more civilized, and more decent. Our basic inclinations are to brutality and barbarism, and we need the gentling influence of women to make us into better men. You can tell what men become in an all-male extended environment: filthy, foul, dangerous, and brutal.

Each compliments and plays off the other. Men help women be more realistic and tough about life, women help men be more caring and ideal about life. Between the two, we find a better whole. When either is out of this careful perspective, horrors result. Right now, women are too much in power.

See the House's actions on this topic.


Very hard to believe any opinion surveys on this topic, given the self-censorship and other bias dynamics likely to be in play, but the idea of opening up female locker rooms to everyone cannot possibly be anything but universally unpopular.


Yet another issue where a very unpopular (and stupid, and indefensible) idea is more or less crammed down the nation's throat. While a putatively representative federal system with an "opposition" party just basically sits there, passive.


You'd think such an outrageous state of affairs might give rise to, say, an unconventional presidential candidate. Oh, wait.

There are no food deserts but there are crime oases.

Businesses like supermarkets are going to go in anywhere where there are enough people to create a sufficient net revenue stream. Things like shoplifting and robbery directly reduce that net revenue. If a neighborhood is subject to crime levels that make it impossible to profitably run a business, those businesses will not build there.

Crime drives away and keeps away businesses. The poverty pimps would like to make everyone believe the lack of the businesses causes crime.

Again, this is only self reporting from the census, the CDC puts the number much higher. But still, you might just be in an area where you have a higher density. I'd suggest that the bulk of America has far, far fewer than 1:6000.

"Now, like with all Clinton scandals, what they actually do is never really that bad . . . . It's always how they handle it," Maher explained.

"I think what the problem is is that these two cut their teeth in Arkansas, and they got used to being able to fool rubes - excuse me, Arkansas - easily. It doesn't work that way in D.C.!" he contiuned.

So it's the fault of you rubes in flyover country. Although I seem to remember the Clintons lying to a bunch of city slickers in D.C., NYC, LA, etc. with a good deal of success.

There's another confusion - that between Memorial and Veterans' Days - but that's more understandable and separate (one for the killed in action, one for the still-living).


In a country now substantially cleansed of its best features, ideas, historical sense, and traditions, and so substantially transformed into an unthinking, bigoted, ignorant mass of passive yet manic narcissists, a holiday like Memorial Day is beyond rescue (for the majority, now, for all but a freakish minority, soon enough).

The little secret feminists want to deny is that women are smaller and physically weaker than men, and reach out for protection. That doesn't make women weaker than men overall, they have their strengths men can only admire and dream of. But women are like hobbits in an orc world, and no matter how much you shout "hear me roar" and read Hunger Games, that doesn't change basic human and physical nature.
Men need women, desperately, to help us be better, more civilized, and more decent. Our basic inclinations are to brutality and barbarism, and we need the gentling influence of women to make us into better men. You can tell what men become in an all-male extended environment: filthy, foul, dangerous, and brutal.
Each compliments and plays off the other. Men help women be more realistic and tough about life, women help men be more caring and ideal about life. Between the two, we find a better whole. When either is out of this careful perspective, horrors result. Right now, women are too much in power.

461 Well in keeping with the non-clearance sale element of Memorial Day, trying to burn through the last part of a book on the rather amazing New Guinea campaign of 1942 (Ghost Mountain Boys).


I find the style very difficult, have to force myself through and basically skip whole sections where the author puts himself, fiction-like, into people's minds or weaves in personal info.


Anyway, the hardships and horror of the campaign, arising from the lack of training/understanding/equipment for jungle warfare are amazing. Basically both sides were starving and collapsing under assorted health maladies right until the end (when the American side started to get some decent supply).


MacArthur also comes across as a psycho who should never have authority over other people, specifically utterly callous about casualties, in contrast to his later reputation (self-promoted?) as a careful strategist striving to minimize casualties in the later stages of the Pacific campaign.


But given the weaknesses of the book overall, this assessment must be very tentative of course.

It's not just SF though. West Hollywood is a municipality carved out almost solely for the purpose of being an openly gay place. One thing I noticed when I was doing contract work, changing out computers at Wells Fargo bank branches, is the big branch in West Hollywood was the only one that, instead of little candy dishes to placate small children while the parent took care of business, had little bowls of dog treats. Because this was a place where dogs outnumbered children by orders of magnitude.

Then there is Hollywood in a business sense, which is a huge draw for deviants of all sorts.

But it's a very big state. If the traditional story holds, OR and WA would have big concentrations for the same reason as San Francisco. Navy ports. Guys join the Navy to get out of Podunk, discover a certain something about themselves during their hitch, and realize they're never going back to Podunk and settle down in the place they were discharged.

Ask the ordinary person under the age of 40 what Memorial Day means and they will not be sure. They think it has something to do with remembering people who have died, or some big battle somewhere.

It's the rare family that takes a the time to go to the cemetery today and clean off the graves of family members who served, or even non military family members.

Fewer and fewer towns have memorial day parades, etc. Small sunrise services in military sections of cemeteries, and the VFW will have it's dwindling old members go out and plant flags on graves.

It's more or less a three day weekend to vacation, go the lake, start the summer, etc. Oh, and don't forget those sales at the mall or the car dealer extravaganzas.

When I finished the garage, I found an old 7-Up bottle-opener (wall-mounted kind) that I remember from my yute. It's now installed on the wall next to the reloading bench. Atop which there is a 50-yr old little can of Outter's gun oil my oldest brother must have bought back in the 60s (still a bit left in it, so I use it).


Grey Fox, yep the Aussies were a big part of the campaign, they fought along the Kokoda Track (only real trail across the mountains from Port Moresby to Buna area). The Ghost Mountain Boys were so dubbed because they basically crossed the mountains using a hunter's trail, at times no trail at all. Serious mountains, unbelievable jungle, rivers, no special equipment or training.

What sparked it was the Howell School system has a 9 year old girl who believes she is a boy and her parents and others are catering to this. She has been permitted to use the boys restroom at school.

The boys in the school were told a few weeks ago that when she comes in the restroom, they are to make sure they "stand close to the urinals" and she is to use a stall.

This insanity has to stop. Her parents should be charged with child abuse

MacArthur certainly had his faults, many of them grievous, and he talked blood and guts but in practice he was a hit 'em where they ain't general.

491 At best the estimate includes only a portion of the transgender population since it is based on name changes registered with Social Security and gender marker changes - presumably on birth certificates. Only people who elect to live full-time in their chosen gender would make these changes. These people are considered "transexuals" and constitute only a minority of what comprises our "transgender" population. The Williams Institute at UCLA estimates that transgender people constitute 3-tenths of 1% of the population or 3 in every 1000 people. Thus the William's Institute's estimate results in 3000 transgender people for every 100,000 people. The writer's conclusions are grossly erroneous.
