    Your brain isn’t separate from biology and gender is formed in the brain. It shows that sex and gender aren’t necessarily linked. It’s bizarre that you’re trying to keep the brain as being separate from the body.

    Nia is a biological man, just like all trans women. That is factual.

    However, Nia and trans women have the self-perception of seeing themselves as women mentally. That perception could explain the power transference.

    It's could be brain-related, and not a chromosomal thing. Since the powers are cerebral.

    How would that work? Ignoring his Trump praising on Fox News and all of that... bringing Cain in as a Kryptonian in one universe.. while being a human in another? That's a stretch.

    But still illogical enough to work for the writers of this show.

    Nope. Modern science disagrees completely and it actually is backed up by factual evidence, unlike your claims.

    Your claims, do I need to teach you reading comprehension too?

    Why so condescending? Which claims?

    You're saying that Nia (or even Nicole Maines) weren't born as biological Males?

    Your knowledge is like 10 years out of date.

    Transwomen are consistently genetically distinct from Cismen.

    Well, on the show Alex's attitude towards other aliens(excepting SG and MM) was originally harsher than this even with knowing Kara was an alien, until she met Maggie and started hanging out at the alien bar and seeing regular aliens in season 2, so this whole angle doesn't exactly track with the history of the show, though I get what they're going for.

    Anyway, excellent episode, love Nia, heartbreaking what she had to go through, but glad she will be suiting up so soon.

    Also, I do wonder where Lena learned Irish... :whistle:

    Well, it's not like this is an alternate-timeline Alex. It's Alex with certain memories erased and rewritten by J'onn. So her view of herself and her world is not going to be exactly, literally like what it would have been if Kara weren't an alien.

    So you regard transgender as a biological gender of it's own, alongside male and female?

    Interesting. Whats debatable about that is humans are either born with Male or Female sexual organs. It's binary.

    Your research suggests that being transgender is caused by the brain and hormone deficiency.

    That still doesn't change a child from being born as specifically Male or Female. Do hospitals or the government note 'transgender' as an option during birth?

    Wrong again. But now your knowledge is thousands of years out of date.

    I have been getting my ass kicked over this for a couple weeks now, I assure you that you do not want to join this painful conversation.

    Probably.

    Intersex. Its not binary.

    No, that's just one difference they found in one study, because they looked for that difference and found it. It's not a cause, it's a marker. Also, in 2019, copy and pasting part of a wikipedia entry is not research.

    Babies are dummies.

    Binaries do not exist in nature, science shows that it’s more of a blur with the majority tending to be at opposite ends and others in between. The idea of a binary is purely cultural and fairly recent based on historical records and various other civilizations.

    Your ignorance on this subject is stunning. Perhaps doing a little research on the subject of intersex people and the wide range of alternatives therein would help a bit - if you're willing to learn.

    Back to the actual topic, folks.

    This thread will be temporarily closed to make sure everyone sees this notice. In a little while, it will be re-opened to allow further on-topic conversation. ;)

    I wonder if Eliza was made aware. What about pictures from their childhood? A couple of them may show Kara using her superpowers, like holding up the couch while Eliza was vacuuming....

    I wonder how Alex doesn’t realize that Supergirl looks and sounds exactly like her sister.
