Do we prevent somebody being hurt by superstition or faith by rejecting and challenging those things? 

Is it mistaken to support organised religion in membership or donations?

If people do good because they are human, not because God prompts them then is it right to risk giving God any credit when they alone own their good?

 


 

NARCISSISM AND TRANSGENDER MALES?

Here is part of the conclusion of a study that identified narcissistic traits in transgender males.

At this stage, the provisional status of our data only permits some few conclusions. The central findings of this questionnaire analysis support the view of a great heterogeneity of gender disordered males which not only extends to the already well known gender and sexuality variables but also to general personality pathology and especially the different modes of self-regulation. We could identify a significant narcissistic pathology in most of our patients, but the regulation-modes afflicted by this pathology differ widely. The cluster analysis has yielded an interesting and clinically reasonable subtyping of our patients with two larger subgroups of which one is marked by severe narcissistic and personality pathology where the gender dysphoria appears as only one facet in this profound pathology, as a rather desperate attempt at stabilizing a fragmented self.

My suggestions: The narcissism is acquired and forced on the patients by society and the Church.  If you feel under threat from your own body and everything else it is inevitable.  It should not be used as a weapon for calling transgenderism selfishness.

The view that God gives you your sex is forcing the transperson to develop a defence against such a suggestion and that can result in narcissism.
