Not so fast! Reincarnation still trumps this MRI study.
In late 2007 Natalie Sudman died. She was working with the army core of engineers in Iraq and the truck she was riding in was hit by a roadside bomb. She only died for a short time however and then her body miraculously came back to life. Natalie had what is called a Near-death Experience (NDE).
Natalie says her soul left her body because her body had died. In another dimension Natalie was offered the choice to return to her body and resume her life, but before that could happen certain parts of her body that were destroyed by the bomb causing her dead had to be miraculously healed. You can listen to her whole story in detail. Just search Youtube for Natalie Sudman.
The point I wish to make is that if the powers that be could miraculously heal her body so she was no longer dead it creates another question or perhaps an answer. If someone has a soul agreement to come into this life as someone who will be dealing with gender dysphoria to elevate their soul to a higher level there can be more than just mental issues. The powers that be could also create physical issues that make that person gender dysphoric.
An MRI brain study of adolescents who identify as transgender doesn’t give a stamp of approval for a person chopping up their body to try to become a different sex. Changing one’s body to live as something they are not is not the goal here. The goal is to embrace that a soul is not bound by human physical sex or gender. The human soul is sexless and genderless. You are born into your body for a reason and the reason is not to chop it up and remake it so you are living as a fake man or fake woman. It’s an obstacle to overcome, not be overcome by. All studies show that long-term people find themselves unhappy with having destroyed a natural life to exist in an unnatural state. Human nature is not going to change where we will one day live in a utopian society where trannies will not be mocked and ridiculed for their folly. Better to embrace what you are and not go to drastic extremes to live an unnatural life. Long-term studies show suicide rates rise again after the post-operative transgender honeymoon phase is over.
