Lots of times i´ve been thinking "why i feel like this? what make me feel this?" i don´t remember feeling in the wrong body in my chilhood, but in my teenager years things were different...
Also i´ve been wondering if GID would have a biological origin, what do you think?

I didn’t care until I was a teenager. I realized I was boyish, but didn’t want a man’s body until then.

All major mental illnesses have a biological origin and the only people who dispute this are pseuds citing Lacan and Jung waiting in the corner to e-psychoanalyze your personality.

Cognitivism master race.

I always looked like a girl and had interest in feminine hobbies, as such I most of my early childhood I was treated as a girl by my peers (even though I hated it). For whatever reason, my mom supported my unusual interests, and even though I grew out of them, I want to go back to being a girl. I am pretty sure that my dysphoria is 90 % the reason of being mistreated by everyone, otherwise I would have grown to be a sissy and not a girl wanna be. This is hell, I always had the opposite of what I wanted

A common symptom of autism spectrum is feeling like an alien among neurotypical thinkers.

Gonna drop in here, had nothing to do with the thread previously:

As a very high functioning autist, I would have to say it feels more like I am sailing through a sea of morons, in regards to me vs. neurotypicals. I have to dumb myself down to converse and interact with them. I impress them all the time with all sorts of shit I can do, and thanks to very early intervention I was trained to pretend to be neurotypical in regards to IRL interaction, so I blend in. They think I'm normal lol.

Some do say it's like being born on the wrong planet, but I think that's an exaggeration, or perhaps applies to the more low-functioning individuals who had language delays and/or no intervention. We're very much human, we just have a different way of thinking. If one can master interaction, it leaves one with a shitload of advantages and not very many disadvantages.

The more I type the more autistic my post looks so I'll stop there lmao

We are made of biology, so of course our thoughts are too... By a biological origin, I assume you mean hereditary, as in our DNA...

>>404609 no disrespect but I think

>>404556 was just explaining how base and low level thinking it is to reduce all disorders of the mind to nature, rather than nurture. Rather than respond directly, someone just called him autistic in a derogatory fashion.

I recently started identifying more as a girl, and I attribute that to a significant extent to the experiences I've lived through. Experiences that shape and define who I am, which influence habit on conscious through to unconscious levels of my psychology. These influences pattern my neural structure and therefore biochemical makeup which is inevitably responsible for a wide range of physiological attenuation throughout my body on a systemic level. QED.

On a more philosophical note, if I didn't believe that through direct influence of my consciousness I could become healthier, smarter, more sensitive, live a longer, more fulfilled life, then I would probably give up on living, because nothing I'd do would matter much anyway.

"Nurture" is by and large how much oxygen you received in the uterus and whether or not your mom inhaled lead as you were gestating. It has little to do with sociocultural background, as much as political pundits and wishful thinkers believe it to be so.

>these influences pattern my neural structure
A very nonsensical statement.

>QED
Personal anecdotes are not arguments. Pseud alert.

oh it's definitely biological, it's been proven. But even if it wasn't, or if the TERFS some day take over and oppress and silence all the evidence and then wipe everyone out like Pol Pot, even then, what matters is actually accepting someone for who they are and trusting their experience of the world.

Any university level textbook in human biology or biological psychology that touches on this will make it clear it's biological

You think one thing is going on:
I am autistic and therefore I am smarter than everyone around me

What is actually going on:
I am autistic
I am intelligent
I am a bit of an asshole and find it hard to accept other people's subjective experiences as valid and beautiful, which is not true of all autistic people but which is something I could work on if I wanted to. My mixture of low empathy and high self esteem mean people occasionally think I am a narcissist, while people who don't understand autism attribute my low empathy to that instead

That makes perfect sense. Is this mixture of low empathy and high self esteem what sets Autistic People apart from Asperger's Syndrome sufferers?

Subjective experiences are by and large worthless. It doesn't take an autist to see that what works for you may not work for everyone else. It's more autistic, I would argue, to hold your perception as a given for all perceptions.
