Assyrians on Facebook arguing that Assyrian is NOT an Aramaic language

I said "unless if they're trans (or extremely feminine)". How the hell does that cover gay men in general? Many overly feminine "gay men" are actually closeted trans and would wish to transition but aren't courageous enough for the surgery and hormones. They lie and be like "well I can be a man and act very girly" to further their men-can-be-womanly agenda to hide the fact that they're internally trans and would die to have a vagina. But again, these are the minority of the gays. You think that we all have their mindset (literally), and that's ridiculous.

You made that drawing out your own personal sentiments. Again, your sources clearly covered trans people, and how their brain is akin to that of a female. NOT gay men in general.

To a certain extent, homosexuals are biologically different from heterosexuals as evident from the structural or anatomical and functional difference between their brains. This fact further establishes the biological underpinning of sexual orientation and homosexuality.

Acclaimed Dutch neurologist Dick F. Swaab mentioned in his review of literatures that sexual differentiation of the human brain occurs during the fetal and neonatal development that subsequently programs sexual orientation and gender identity. This biological development process involving sexual differentiation is accompanied by many structural and functional brain differences among heterosexual, homosexual, and even bisexual groups.

In a key article, Simon LeVay presented the difference in hypothalamic structure between heterosexual and homosexual men3. Cited by a majority of articles in the field, LeVay?s hypothesis and study was expository and led to extensive additional research. LeVay argued that the hypothalamus held the the key to sexual orientation. He cited that, in male monkeys, lesions in this region impair heterosexual behavior without eliminating sexual drive3.

Brain scans have provided the most compelling evidence yet that being gay or straight is a biologically fixed trait.
The scans reveal that in gay people, key structures of the brain governing emotion, mood, anxiety and aggressiveness resemble those in straight people of the opposite sex.

You can see that only one source compares us to the opposite sex. And it even says "resemble" rather than "the same". It's not for every gay man or lesbian obviously, but rather for the very feminine gays and butch lesbians, who signed up for the test. There are many gay guys and lesbians who deal with emotions in a manly manner and feminine way, respectively. You can't tell me that their emotions and mentality resemble the opposite sex. But yes, there do exist very feminine gay guys who obviously have a more "feminine" brain, and straight guys too btw (like Bruce Jenner).

The other sources are spot on. I've even used them as arguments for religious people who think being gay is a choice. Yes, our brains are indeed different to that of straight men. That's why we're gay. And this proves that we didn't choose to be gay and, rather, it's all hormonal or genetic.

yes, homosexuals resemble the structure of the opposite sex, this is something my chart already shows.

I already know there are gay men who handle emotions in a masculine way, my chart clearly shows that gay men still retain masculine structure.

Why can't you just say my chart is correct :)

As correct as a chart saying all Assyrians have a medium olive complexion and have hooked noses. World map charts usually put us under brown skinned Middle Easterners with prominent noses. That isn't the case for a good number of Assyrians.

Same thing with gays and the opposite sex brains. True for some, but not for the rest. Nobody said your chart wasn't *entirely* correct. ;)

I think you're trying to say personality is different but brain structure doesn't do much against personality.

I'm interested in seeing peoples opinion on this.
Yes please.

This thread derailed horribly. From ad hominems about certain users to the subject of homosexuality. Lol
 
Well, I haven't done enough research on this topic but I reckon that modern Assyrian is an Aramaic language. Either that, or it is a hybrid language of Akkadian and Aramaic which is plausible since they were both official languages of the Neo-Assyrian empire. However, I believe that modern Assyrian is a heavily Akkadian influenced Aramaic language and that's what I've always seen it as.

I agree.
