 Xiong Ling: understanding the psychological reality of trans sexual others


Ling Xiwen

Hello, Miss Xiong Ling! Qian Jinfan, an 84 year old retired cadre in Foshan, has made public his identity as a cross gender person in the media, becoming the oldest trans gender person in China, which has caused a great response in the society. It is understood that he has always wanted to live as a woman since he was young. Until he was 80, he began to eat hormone breast augmentation and wear womens clothes. For this reason, we have planned the related topic psychological analysis of cross gender people, hoping to get the analysis of teacher Xiong Ling, so that readers can have a deeper understanding of trans gender groups.

1. People have different opinions about Qian Jinfan and other cross gender people. Some of them directly denounce it as abnormal, some think it is caused by psychological obsessive-compulsive disorder, some think it is easily transmitted disease, and some think that transgender and homosexuality are normal psychology. What do you think of these views? From a psychological point of view, which one is more realistic?

People have different opinions on Qian Jinfans cross gender, which shows that it is a complex and difficult problem to give a precise definition or proper name to cross gender. Havelock Ellis, a famous research psychologist, defines this phenomenon as heterosexual desire to dress up. It is believed that heterosexual desire to dress up belongs to the neutral category of sex, but it is not easy to explain its exact origin.

From the perspective of psychology, people who interpret the desire to dress up of the opposite sex are driven by a sensitive and feminine element in their personality structure. The formation of this component is related to a persons abnormal childhood experience, such as being raised as a heterosexual, or excessively attached to a mother. According to the view of psychodynamics, the basic factor leading to heterosexual desire to dress up is castration complex (castration complex is a professional term of psychoanalysis, which refers to castration anxiety and incest depression due to unconscious Oedipus in childrens sexual identity development; deprivation of sexual hatred or fear of being abandoned due to mothers control and possession in childhood. The premise to overcome the fear of castration is to identify with the father and the law symbolized by the father, so that people can grow up normally. On the contrary, it will leave a complex that will lead to abnormal life in the future.

In order to understand Qian Jinfans transgender behavior, baidu read his relevant materials. Among all the information, I think the most explanation for his transgender reason is that he remembers a urination when I was 3 years old. Others said that he was a boy. I felt very sad, and felt that if a girl would be very good, he would be liked. After that, his heart gradually fell in love with the girls thoughts For the tracing of. According to psychological development, the formation of social identity begins with infants and ends before the age of 18, while the formation of gender identity begins with infants and ends up before the age of 8. Qian Jinfans memories can explain that his female identity planted seeds in his childhood. In the process of his growing up, his beloved and beloved experience is closely related to the ideas of how good to be a girl and bad boy, which has affected his emotional orientation as the inner drive of spirit. In his psychological development, he has long denied that he is a boy and thinks that he is a girl, and he has been very narcissistic in love with his inner self role - girl. In other words, he has always felt himself as a woman. But because he is actually a man, he must accept his male self at the same time because of his strong rational (ethical or moral) needs. It should be said that, as a man, he has fulfilled the social role of husband and father, which is very impressive.

Moreover, he thinks that in the future when conditions are ripe, he should realize or restore his inner identity: female. His calm face, and to achieve his real needs of the action, is also amazing.

2. Many people are puzzled by Qian Jinfans behavior. He hopes to live as a woman, but he still takes a wife and has children. Moreover, he introduced in an interview with the media that his and his wifes husband and wifes life is not bad. Does this mean that Qian is a lesbian with a male body?

Xiong Ling

Homosexuality and heterosexual dressing up are very close, but not the same thing. The former repels the opposite sex and is close to the same sex, while the latter can be close to the opposite sex, and the sexual orientation is not the same sex. Havelock Ellis found that: in all cases of sexual deviation, the incidence of heterosexual dressing up is only lower than that of homosexuality; in ordinary life, the participants do not have special unusual characteristics, and their mental ability is often higher than that of ordinary people. In my opinion, Qian Jinfans situation is not exactly like Elliss heterosexual dressing desire, because he not only likes to wear womens clothes, but also has surgery to change sex. Its like homosexuality, but hes not, because hes not gay, hes heterosexual. 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 depression, and has nothing to do with gay or lesbian.

The psychological characteristics and reasons of cross gender have been explained earlier. Fake mother refers to a group of men who imitate womens tone, habits, hobbies and so on, but dress up more neuter. Most of them are adolescent boys. The so-called sissy is more feminine. The reasons for this phenomenon are also very complex, mostly related to the media talent show, family doting, individual pursuit of bizarre, fashionable, exaggerated empty psychology. But they still identify with their male identity, and their sexual orientation is not the same sex.

4. What are the reasons for the inconsistency of physical gender, psychological gender and social gender in cross gender people? Is the dominant factor congenital or postnatal?

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, and researchers in different fields have different explanations for the reasons. But almost including genetic, family education and childhood experience, social and cultural factors, in summary, including congenital and acquired factors. Of course, the postnatal factors are the main factors.

5. Is it necessary to adjust the transgender people formed by the postnatal influence through psychological intervention? At present, for this kind of population, what are the methods of psychological intervention? Would you like to talk about one or two cases of transgender people that you have come into contact with or know about?

Xiong Ling

Whether it is necessary to adjust through psychological intervention depends on the need of adjustment. If there is a need for psychological counseling, the key point in the process of counseling is to deal with the inner conflict of the party. If there is no conflict or insist on cross gender behavior, it is not the object of psychological intervention. The specific psychological intervention methods are different according to the theoretical direction mastered by psychological counselors. (sorry, I dont do case analysis and expression here.)

6. For some transgender children, the means that the medical community could provide in the past was to complete their dream of transsexuality through the two steps of hormone regulation and surgical transformation. But because they had developed all the characteristics of the gender they did not agree with before the operation, the effect was not ideal. Therefore, foreign endocrine experts have proposed a solution in recent years, that is, to prevent childrens sexual development through synthetic hormone development blockers. By the age of 16, if a child decides to take hormone therapy, it can start puberty and develop into the sex the child wants. What do you think of this practice?

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 cross gender people?

Xiong Ling

Since the acceptance of ordinary people and the continuous improvement of their understanding of the society, the attitude of the majority of people has been improved. Then, we can understand and allow a small number of people to be biased. Since it is prejudice, it shows that these few people have deep-rooted traditional ideas, or their personality lacks openness and tolerance.

8. What misunderstandings do you think people tend to have about transgender people?

Xiong Ling

Myth one: theyre 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 extremely sensitive, but only a psychological phenomenon of sexual identity variation, not personality distortion. Those who hold this view tend to cast scorn and ridicule at cross gender people. Third, the problem of moral character. Transgender people are psychological problems, not personality problems.

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

Xiong Ling

This question is a very important topic for all parents, especially Chinese parents. Because Chinese culture has educated peoples suppression and concealment of sex, inhibition and circuitous expression of emotion. I 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 their children; 2) in childhood, they should pay attention to the childrens real identity, for example, girls should be given the dress up, especially let her feel that she is important and loved; for boys, we should avoid being coquettish as girls. 3) The most important attitude of parents is that they should be calm, natural and direct when they ask questions about various sex games or questions about sexual topics. They should not avoid evasion, surprise, anxiety, seriousness or reprimand; 4) parents learning and guidance. If parents have positive guidance for childrens gender identity education, the premise is that parents have a certain knowledge of child sex education. When answering or dealing with difficult problems, you can respond to the children in a clear and unhurried way. Nowadays, the education system also involves the curriculum of sexual physiology and psychology. In addition, as long as parents respect and love their childrens sexual identity and have a good attitude towards childrens sex games or sexual topics, it is already a good gender identity education.
