The Science of the Transgender Issue VS. the Pseudoscience Surrounding Gender and Sex!

Greetings from the future, In this long awaited video I will be tackling a subject that some would deem controversial. The transgender issue is something that has been debated for years and the flames are still raging today.

In this video I examine the two sides of the debate and present the current conclusions made by the scientific community. One side says it’s caused by the wrong brain in the wrong body where the other side says it’s caused by a mental disorder. These two positions are correct to an extent, doctors and physicians know and use this knowledge to diagnose gender dysphoria.

I also debunk some of the pseudoscience surrounding gender, sex, and the transgender issue, so enjoy the video!
