    1:29:00. If that part of the brain in transexual people is different from their natural sex and matches the people's claims about their ''true gender'', then, why would nature give them the opposite sex and sex features from what they are claiming to be?!

    29:00 is wrong. 10 to 30% no way. 1 to 3% of tests are "negative"

    I live near Seattle. the current up-and-coming narratives i am hearing are things like: there is no difference between the sexes, that "gender is a social construct" and "the future is non binary" …why are these things being pushed by some when it is so clearly and broad-sweepingly untrue?

    “In the particular realm of female rat sexual behavior,… the standard dogma has been that the female role is a very passive receptive one …[and that’s only true because] if she doesn’t have enough room to run around [bla bla bla ]… if you’re studying an animal in a setting where they can’t speak in their own language.” THAT’S ME UNDER CURRENT SOCIETY RULES. but anyways…. great class… too bad he didnt cover all possible sexual orientations.

    At about 49:00 in the video concerning the spike of dopamine in relation to "maybe's":
    a. I am reminded of casinos and their payouts. People get addicted to gambling for the 'high'.
    b. I am also reminded of social media sites like even YouTube, but Facebook and others as well. Sometimes you get a 'like' sometimes you don't. Sometimes you get a reply to a comment, sometimes you don't. Hence, people can get addicted to social media for the 'high'.
    c. I am reminded of businesses, sometimes they make a sale, sometimes they don't. Business owners also possibly get addicted to the 'high'.

    Seems like there are a lot of "maybe's" in our life that give us periodic 'highs' for various reasons.

    Maybe I will make more comments, did you get a bump in dopamine? Did you get 'high' over my comments?
