You're right this thread is poorly constructed word vomit, and upon further consideration I realized this isn't really a conversation I actually want anyway. I'll leave the videos but I'm removing the rest of my post

The Flood / Stephen Hawking dies at 76

Quote
Physicist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76, his family has said.

The Briton was known for his groundbreaking work with black holes and relativity, and was the author of several popular science books including A Brief History of Time.

His children, Lucy, Robert and Tim, said: "We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today.

"He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years."


Quote
Stephen Hawking - who died aged 76 - battled motor neurone disease to become one of the most respected and best-known scientists of his age.

A man of great humour, he became a popular ambassador for science and was always careful to ensure that the general public had ready access to his work.

His book A Brief History of Time became an unlikely best-seller although it is unclear how many people actually managed to get to the end of it.

He appeared in a number of popular TV shows and lent his synthesised voice to various recordings.

Stephen William Hawking was born in Oxford on 8 January 1942. His father, a research biologist, had moved with his mother from London to escape German bombing.

Hawking grew up in London and St Albans and, after gaining a first-class degree in physics from Oxford, went on to Cambridge for postgraduate research in cosmology.


Quote
As a teenager he had enjoyed horse-riding and rowing but while at Cambridge he was diagnosed with a form of motor neurone disease which was to leave him almost completely paralysed.

As he was preparing to marry his first wife, Jane, in 1964 his doctors gave him no more than two or three years of life.

But the disease progressed more slowly than expected. The couple had three children, and in 1988 - although Hawking was by now only able to speak with a voice synthesiser following a tracheotomy - he had completed A Brief History of Time - a layman's guide to cosmology.

It sold more than 10 million copies, although its author was aware that it was dubbed "the most popular book never read".

Celebrity

Hawking discovered the phenomenon which became known as Hawking radiation, where black holes leak energy and fade to nothing. He was renowned for his extraordinary capacity to visualise scientific solutions without calculation or experiment.

But it was perhaps his "theory of everything", suggesting that the universe evolves according to well-defined laws, that attracted most attention.

"This complete set of laws can give us the answers to questions like how did the universe begin," he said. "Where is it going and will it have an end? If so, how will it end? If we find the answers to these questions, we really shall know the mind of God."

Quote
Hawking's celebrity status was acknowledged even by The Simpsons - he was depicted drinking at a bar with Homer, suggesting he might steal Homer's idea that the universe is shaped like a doughnut.

He also appeared as himself in an episode of the BBC comedy series, Red Dwarf and as a hologram of his image in Star Trek: The Next Generation.

The rock group Pink Floyd used his distinctive synthesised voice for the introduction to Keep Talking, on their 1994 album The Division Bell.

Undeterred by his condition, he continued his work as Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University, and in 2001, his second book - Universe in a Nutshell - was published.

Erratic

He believed his illness brought some benefits; he said before he developed the disease he had been bored with life.

But his condition inevitably made him dependent on others. He often paid tribute to his wife, who had looked after him for more than 20 years, and friends and relatives were shocked when he left her for one of his nurses, whom he married in 1995.

By 2000, Hawking was a frequent visitor to the emergency department of Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, seeking treatment for a variety of injuries. Police questioned several people about allegations that he had been subjected to verbal and physical abuse over a period of years.


Quote
He was known to be an erratic, almost reckless driver of his electric wheelchair, and Hawking insisted his injuries were not caused by abuse. No action was taken.

In 2007, he became the first quadriplegic to experience weightlessness on board the so-called "vomit comet", a modified plane specially designed to simulate zero gravity. He said he did it to encourage interest in space travel.

"I believe that life on Earth is at an ever-increasing risk of being wiped out by a disaster such as sudden nuclear war, a genetically engineered virus, or other dangers. I think the human race has no future if it doesn't go into space. I therefore want to encourage public interest in space."

In 2014, the film The Theory of Everything was released, based on Jane Hawking's account of their courtship and marriage. Hawking himself met Eddie Redmayne as part of the actor's preparation for taking on the role of the scientist.

In a series for the Discovery Channel, he said it was perfectly rational to assume there was intelligent life elsewhere but warned that aliens might just raid earth of its resources and then move on.

He once wrote that he had motor neurone disease for practically all his adult life but said that it had not stopped him having an attractive family and being successful in his work.

"It shows," he said, "that one need not lose hope."

Personally I think
what you think doesn't matter when you're ignoring that there's more to it than gender stereotypes

Like what besides “hundreds of little subtle things”
how about the fact that I have a male wired brain you dull sack of shit

say it with me

neurological
sexual
dimorphism

Still don’t understand why gender is broken up into mental and physical aspects

It’s kind of a sexist idea in my opinion
There is nothing inherently wrong with being a feminine man or a masculine woman, but they are still male and female. There's more to it than just stereotypical gender roles and that's one of the key things that always goes over people's heads.

Biology doesn't care about sexism.

Do you think preconceptions of male and female identity influenced your choice to transition?
If it did it wasn't a deciding factor, but I'm sure it had some influence. Sure I like stereotypically masculine stuff but that's not anywhere near the full picture.

Alright, fine, whatever, just explain me this one thing. How's a male brain different than a female one?
Sexual metamorphism and hormones.

Quote
What's so male about your brain that you think you were born in the wrong body? Is it aggressiveness, the urge to fuck things with a penis, violence- what?
It's not that simple really. I grew up being a pretty rough and tumble tomboy and I was relatively happy until I hit puberty and everything flipped on its head. I didn't understand why at the time but the hormonal spike during puberty made me distressed to the point where I turned suicidal because my body became alien and foreign, and all the changes that were happening felt wrong. As time went on it got worse and the depression got severe enough that I sought help, and I was diagnosed with Gender Identity Disorder as it used to be called.

Hormone replacement therapy straightened me out.
What happened to your body? My puberty was just me growing taller for the most part
Female puberty?

Estrogen my dude, trust me if you had your testosterone cut off and got pumped full of estrogen you'd probably become depressed because you're not wired to be that way. Just ask Jive, he's fucked with hormones a lot when he's roiding it, he knows the effects of that kinda stuff. For example if you take too much testosterone, you start having aggression problems. If you take even more testosterone and you surpass what your body can handle, your system converts some of it into estrogen and become an emotional and unstable mess on top of the aggression.

Hormones. They have more influence than you think. An XY baby can be born with a female typical body if the testosterone is cut off. You can also get XX babies born with a typically male body with the presence of too much testosterone. Neurologically it's the same.

What made you attribute this to gender
Kinda like Class said there's hundreds of little subtle things, I more or less summarized to simplify it as much as possible. On the surface I was already pretty stereotypical masculine though closeted about it, albeit poorly. A lot of it is stuff I really don't know how to explain other than "this is wrong, I don't know why everything feels wrong" and not being able to picture myself growing up to be a woman and wishing I could cease from existing completely because it was too much to handle on top of normal teenage angst. It was like I was constantly at odds with myself.

Growing up with conservative parents I had buried a lot of it down and it took several years to learn to not be ashamed of myself for it. After tearing those walls down and just allowing myself to think about what I wanted and needed, I realized a lot of things, but mostly that I could actually imagine myself growing old and being happy if I had been born male instead. That if I had grown up that way my body wouldn't feel alien and I wouldn't feel like I was robbed of the childhood I should've had. Going on hormones reinforced that because for the first time in my life I started feeling normal. It sounds stereotypical but it was like the clouds parted and two tons was taken off my back. Also keep in mind that once I had started hormones I had already been kicked out and was on my way to losing everything I previously cared about and becoming homeless on top of all that. Despite that I managed to get through it, when I was previously a complete mess who would've never been able to gather the mental fortitude to get through it.

People don't realize how much hormones influence your brain. A slight fuck up in the balance of everything and things go haywire.

gender is binary IMO, there's 1 and 2 and a spectrum between
this

tumblr nonbinary stuff is bullshit and they need to just go back to being edgy emo kids because it's sabotaging public perception on everything

not how it works lmao

you either "want" to be masculine or feminine, and gender dysphoria is when you're messed up and want the opposite of what you were born as

the want is the gender, the body itself is the sex
You can be a feminine man, or a masculine woman.
this is true, but it's also not the same thing as having a brain wired male in a female body and vise versa
it's effectively a neurological intersex condition, and not a fun one to have at that

the latter is just fucking with gender norms for the sake of fucking with gender norms or cross dressing because it gives you a boner

The way I see it, you want to be male, so you changed your gender. Loaf wants to be female, so he took the aspects he likes about females and made it his own thing. Basically you changed because you want to fit a role, and he just put on a dress while still acknowledging that he's a male.

You changed because you were uncomfortable, he didn't because he's comfortable.
"Sorry, I don't conform to your gender norms" isn't the same as "I want to be female"

shoot yourself in the face please
Nigga what

Weren't you a girl before? I don't think you're in a position to hate on Loaf for wearing a dress


Spoiler
just because I was born a certain way that doesn't mean I intentionally go out of my way to dress and look like a freak, I do actually try to be a normal human being you know
You and Loaf are two sides of the same coin.
disagree

having a hormonal neurological condition isn't the same as playing dress up and making a political statement about your identity with it
What is that condition? I'd say Loaf isn't in a normal condition either, but unless we specify, throwing around big words won't answer anything.
gender dysphoria
