 Xiong Ling: interpreting the psychological reality of transgender people


Ling Xiwen:

1. People have different views on Qian Jinfan and other transgender people. Some denounce it as abnormal, some think its a kind of psychological obsession, some think its an STD, some think its a normal psychology just like homosexuality. What do you think of these views? From a psychological point of view, which is more realistic?

Xiong Ling:

People have different opinions on Qian Jinfan and other peoples cross gender, which shows that it is a complex and intractable problem to define or name cross gender exactly. Hufflock Ellis, a famous research psychologist, defines this phenomenon as: the desire of the opposite sex to dress up. It is believed that heterosexual dress desire belongs to the neutral category of sex, but it is not easy to explain its exact origin.

From the psychological point of view, it is driven by a sensitive and female element in the personality structure to interpret the heterosexual dresser. The formation of this component is related to a persons abnormal childhood experience, such as being raised as a heterosexual, or being overly attached to his mother. According to the view of psychodynamics, the basic factor leading to heterosexual dressing desire is castration complex (castration complex is a professional term of psychoanalysis, which refers to the castration anxiety and incest depression existing in the early stage of sexual identity development due to the unconscious Oedipus; the control and possession of the mother in the childhood leads to deprivation of sexual hatred, or the fear of persecution abandoned. The premise of overcoming castration fear is to identify with the law of father and the symbol of father, and then people can grow up normally. On the contrary, it will leave behind the complex of abnormal life in the future.

In order to interpret Qian Jinfans transgender, baidu gave him some relevant information. Among all the information, I think the best explanation for his transgender is that he remembered a pee when I was 3 years old. Others said that he was a boy. I was very sad. I thought that if a girl would be very good, he would be liked. Then his heart gradually fell in love with what the girl thought For the tracing of. According to the theory of psychological development, the formation of human social identity starts from the baby and ends before the age of 18, while the formation of gender identity starts from the baby and ends before the age of 8. Qian Jinfans recollection can explain that his female identity has planted seeds in his childhood. In the process of his growing up, his beloved and popular experience from childhood is closely related to how good it is to be a girl and how bad it is to be a boy. As an inner drive of spirit, it affects his emotional orientation. In his psychological development, he has long denied that he is a boy but thinks he is a girl, and has been very narcissistic to love his inner self role - girl. In other words, he has always felt himself as a woman. But because he is a man in fact, he is also forced by a strong rational (ethical or moral) need, and must accept his own male self at the same time. It should be said that he completed the social role of husband and father better as a male, which is very amazing.

Moreover, he believes that in the future when conditions are ripe, he should realize or restore his inner identity: female. Its also amazing that hes so open-minded and realizes what he really needs.

2. Many people are puzzled by Qian Xianfans behavior. He wants to live as a woman, but he still has a wife and children. In an interview with the media, he said that his life with his wife is not bad. Does this mean that Qian is a male lesbian?

Xiong Ling:

Homosexuality and heterosexuality are very similar, but not the same thing. The former is to exclude the opposite sex and to be close to the same sex, while the latter is to be close to the opposite sex, and the sexual orientation is not the same sex. Hufflock Ellis found that: in all cases of sexual deviation, the incidence of heterosexual desire to dress up is only lower than that of homosexuality; in general life, the parties do not have special and unusual characteristics, in terms of spirit, their ability is often higher than that of ordinary people. I dont think the situation of Qian Jinfan is exactly like what Ellis called heterosexual dressing desire, because he not only likes to wear womens clothes, but also has sex change through surgery. Its like homosexuality, but hes not, because his sexual partner is not the same sex, but the opposite sex. His transgender need is only to realize his early female identity. When hes really transgender, its a question mark whether he has sex with his wife. But it can be said that his situation is the subversion of individual gender identity, which belongs to the psychological problem of early sexual identity repression, and has nothing to do with gay or lesbian.

4. What are the causes of the inconsistencies between physical gender, psychological gender and social gender? Which is the dominant factor is congenital or acquired?

Xiong Ling:

The causes of transgender phenomenon are very complex. Many experts in sexology and sexual psychology believe that it is difficult to find the exact origin of all sexual deviation. Researchers in different fields have different explanations for the causes. But it almost includes heredity, family education and childhood experience, social culture and other factors. In short, it includes congenital and acquired factors. Of course, the postnatal factor is the main one.

Xiong Ling:

Whether it is necessary to adjust through psychological intervention depends on whether the parties need to adjust. If the parties have the need to receive psychological consultation, then the focus of the consultation process is to deal with the internal conflicts of the parties. If there is no conflict or the behavior of insisting to cross gender, it is not the object of psychological intervention. The specific psychological intervention methods are different according to the theoretical direction mastered by the psychological counselor. (sorry I dont do case analysis and expression here)

6. For some transgender children, what the medical community can provide in the past is to complete their transgender dream through two steps of hormone regulation and surgical transformation. But because they had developed all the features of the gender they didnt agree with before the operation, the effect was not ideal. In recent years, foreign endocrinologists have proposed a solution to prevent childrens sexual development through synthetic hormone development blocker. By the age of 16, if a child decides to have hormone therapy, it can initiate puberty and develop into the gender the child wants. What do you think of this approach?

7. Although the degree of social openness is increasing, there are still quite a number of people who are biased against transgender people. From the perspective of social psychology, what is the attitude of ordinary people towards transgender people?

Xiong Ling:

Since the openness of the society is increasing, it shows that the majority of ordinary people have taken the attitude of understanding and acceptance towards transgender people. Then, we can also understand and allow a small number of people to be biased. And since it is prejudice, it shows that these few people have deep-rooted traditional ideas, or their personalities lack openness and tolerance.

8. What do you think people are prone to misunderstandings about transgender people?

Xiong Ling:

Myth 1: they are sexual perverts. This is a misunderstanding. In the past, this kind of phenomenon was defined as abnormal. This definition has long been abandoned as an objective definition, but many people still think that they are abnormal. Second, personality distortion. They do have personality problems, such as extreme sensitivity, but it is only a psychological phenomenon of sexual identity variation, rather than a distortion of personality. People who hold this view tend to look down on transgender people. Third, the problem of character. Transgender people are psychological problems, not personality problems.

9. In childhood, how should parents conduct correct gender identity education to avoid the emergence of cross gender children?

This question is a very important topic for all parents, especially Chinese parents. Because Chinese culture has educated people to suppress and hide sex, to suppress emotion and circuitous expression. We have to talk about it briefly here. First of all, parents should learn the knowledge of childrens psychological development, so as to master the effectiveness of emotional understanding and expression when they get along with children; 2) in childhood, they should pay attention to the respect of childrens real identity, for example, girls should be given the dress, especially to let her feel that she is important and loved; boys should avoid being nurtured as girls. 3) The most important thing for childrens sexual games or questions about sexual topics is the attitude of parents, which should be peaceful, natural and direct, not to evade, be surprised, be upset, be serious or reprimand; 4) parents learning and guidance. If parents have positive guidance for childrens gender identity education, the premise is that parents need to have certain knowledge of childrens sex education. When you answer or deal with difficult questions, you can be aware of it and respond to children without panic. Nowadays, the education system is also involved in the courses of sexual physiology and sexual psychology. As long as parents respect and love their childrens sexual identity, and have a good attitude towards their childrens sexual games or topics, it is a good education of gender identity.
