An evolutionary explanation for transvestism.

I would like to share with the group "The Transvestite Theory". It illustrate from an evolutionary stand point (survival of the fittest), why some people are transvestites.

    I really enjoyed this discussion. Sorry again for arriving late, and thanks Monika for organizing this.
    You mentioned something about the next meetup. When is it and what is the topic?

    So, I realize now that my understanding of natural selection was most definitely wrong. It is now: Genes are said to be 'selected' when this gene gives an individual organism of a species a reproductive advantage. Not, as I was saying, a gene is 'selected' when this gene gives an individual an advantage in survival. Thus, for a gene to be the 'fittest' it would have to show that it gives reproductive advantage and would necessarily have to exist across generations. This understanding actually makes heterosexuality as the dominant trait less a mere contingent empirical fact and more of a inevitable certainty, which is I think lends support to the theory and is interesting. Anyway, thank you everyone for a very enjoyable Saturday afternoon!

      I am not sure who has it, but we sometimes post the links on the event site.

    i posted the event for the following week (even though we discussed it to be in 2 weeks from the last one) so that it will give people adequate time to get informed about the time/location of the meeting.
