I’ve been so caught up crafting my own lengthy posts lately that I neglected to point out that Dr. Veronica Drantz recently posted video of her excellent presentation “Myth and Science of Sexuality – Disordered or Just Different.”
Here is what the presentation is about, in Drantz words:
This video and the slideshow “Myth and Science of Sexuality – Disordered or Just Different?” of my presentation to the Ethical Humanist Society of Chicago on October 10, 2010, explain the development of diverse sexualities (as natural variations of the organization-activation mechanism), and show that LGBTI peoples suffer persecution due to a socio-cultural disorder resulting from the erroneous “gender binary” concept.
I’ve linked to the slide show alone previously, but it really is MUCH better when you can listen to the presentation along with it.
Dr. Drantz does a phenomenal job covering a VAST amount of scientific information in a comparatively short span of time. But the nice thing about posting the slides and video is that it allows people who may feel overwhelmed absorbing so much all at once to go back and revisit the material at their own pace.
Regardless of your interest in trans issues, the science here is fascinating. I super-extra recommend watching the whole thing.
