Looking to help researchers advance science
« on: May 25, 2021, 07:49:43 pm »
Does anyone know of any researchers looking for transwomen to participate in scientific research to advance knowledge in this field. Science is very important to me and my family. I would love to help scientists develop abmedical test to better diagnose gender dysphoria and those like me that have struggled our whole  lives just trying to feel comfortable in our own bodies. A blood test,
X-ray, or brain scan would have helped me better understand my condition years ago. Since there isn’t one. I am determined to help those in the scientific community develop tests to help many others like me. If anyone knows anyone for me to contact I would really appreciate it! Thank you so much!! Hugs, Rebecca

Not sure I understand. Do you have some skills in this area or are you offering your services as a victim test subject?

I have a medical background. I am looking for an opportunity to participate in studies to help move this field of science forward. I don’t care if it’s paid or not. Just want to help those trying to unravel the mysteries and many unknowns in this field. Hope this clarifies. Hugs, Rebecca

        How much so-called "scientific lit" have you already read? ie: Benjamin or Bailey? They still 'aven't figured out "why gay/lesbian" so don't hold out much hope for us either outside of, perhaps, a more "social studies" approuch?

I DO suspect the two (3?) are related though.

Chloe,

This is exactly why I want to participate in some research studies. There is so much in this field unknown. A lot of theories, but many unknowns. I want to be apart of helping unravel some of these mysteries. Hugs, Rebecca

Rebecca, Oxford and Harvard universities have carried out research on dimorphism within brain structure, and quite a few other research facilities. There are papers on line, and I’m confident research is ongoing. There is a brain scan which can confirm the incongruent dimorphism in the Bed Nucleus which was initially discovered in dissected brains. I believe this will be the future diagnosis for gender incongruence.

I have also encountered some researchers who have agendas, so before you offer your services, check them out!

Hugs,

Allie

Allie,

Thanks for your feedback. You bring up a good point about agendas. I just don’t want to sit around with all these unknowns. When I would like to be apart of the solution and support those whose work can be ground breaking in this field. Hugs, Rebecca
