As a biology professor, I can tell you that we have found zero evidence supporting transsexual/asexual/pansexual etc. We are starting to discover that it is actually caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. Just thought I would inform you.

Hi Anon! Sorry for getting to your question late I have just been doing some blogging and almost forgot about your message. You were probably waiting for my response patiently so I apologize (´• w •`)

You bring up a lot of interesting topics in this message.

1. You say that you are a biology professor (which if you are good for you I am going for a major in biology soon so I know my away around some of the material and concepts) and if you are it would seem that you would be doing a research paper on the subject with colleagues (since you said “we”). It seems very interesting that this is a topic of your study but I would love to read up on it so if you could link me to some of your research/papers I would appreciate that greatly. Also where are you teaching at because I would like to look into what school would be looking into giving grants for research based on gender identity and sexual identity

2. You say that there is no evidence for, as you put it “transsexual/asexual/pansexual etc.”, but then go on to say that “it is actually caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain”. Those two thoughts kinda cancel each other out don’t they? Either there is no evidence for those sexualities/genders, or the evidence FOR it shows that it is a chemical imbalance in the brain. So if you are doing your research then you should probably lock down what your research as told you. A lot of people in the science community won’t take your seriously if you can’t do that Anon. Just looking out for a science bro.

Before I go on to number three at this point I am assuming that you are not in fact a professor so I’m sorry if this offends you or that I’m wrong, but based on the evidence of my blog getting a lot of Anons lately regarding my sexuality, ( and one Anon saying that it is wrong and that I need Jesus which I’m 90% sure was also you Anon and that you are in some way trying to troll me but if you couldn’t tell you aren’t doing a very good job) that this message is intended to continue that line of questioning/trolling so Anon you decided to say you were a Biology professor to seem like a legit source. But again if you are really a different Anon who is a professor I’m sorry to question you, as it seems very likely for a troll to do.

Anyways

3. It has already been proven that sexualities are not chemical imbalances but in fact more genes than anything else that are a biological preset for the person. As in, the person was born that way. However Anon, the misconception is that any sexualities that divert from what European culture (that was forced down every other society’s throats since they started to start sailing around and claiming every bit of land and people they found as their own) considered the norm (which was if you can guess Cisgendered Heterosexuality), is a chemical imbalance comes from nothing but wanting a scapegoat to blame anything other than the “norm” (it hurts to type that) and that people who are otherwise are different and should be feared or changed in some way. If anything is caused by chemical imbalances in the brain it is more along the lines of mental illness, and even then the imbalances come forth through the genes which code for how much of each chemical is made in the brain, so it is also a genetic thing too.

4. Sorry if this seems to be a nitpick Anon, but I just feel that if you were really trying to convince me of being a professor you might have typed out your message better and made a better attempt to explain yourself. Again, not a big deal and I’m not against people being less about grammar and detail online but I just feel that is what caused me to doubt that you were a professor. Sorry.

But to respond to you directly and not just to analyze what you had said:

Thank you for messaging me Anon! It is really nice of you to try to inform me but I feel like your research is either nonexistent or lacking. Your statements can easily be disproven with a Google search but it is nice to hear your opinion on the matter. If you have any other questions or anything else to say my ask box is always open and accepting of all asks, trolling or not. I hope you can look over the points I made and maybe take a second look at why you feel the way you do. I am happy to help you through The process. (๑╹っ╹๑)

Best wishes Anon,

Stop Overfishing

Overfishing has become a global issue affecting the oceans, marine life, and the earth in general….

so I am doing a project with some friends to help stop and reverse the impact of overfishing. it would really help if we got our blog out there so others can help us.

Please pass along if you can, it means the world to my friends, me, and countless fish being overfished today.
