    Ah yes, the victims, the victims, the blessed victims. That's the attitude I hate and the one that the left wants to elevate.

    Being a unique person is a privilege, not a status worth pity. You think you're a woman in man's body? Go for it. But expecting the world to easily accept this and then asking the government to FORCE people to accept it is nuttier then the belief that you're a woman in man's body. People are biased and xenophobic by nature. Most people go out of their way to find reasons to hate others. That's the sad reality. But don't get all freaking self righteous about it. You're just doing more of the same. Your homework is to watch Star Trek for the next year and learn the IDIC principle. Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations. Xenophobia is one of those points of diversity. It's not one I would choose, but it appears you may need some education. Did I use the word "hate?" OMG, I did! Looks like I am just another human. We are ALL human, even the "deplorables."

I realize that on a visceral level in a way that few others do. And so does every other trans person who has ever had, wants to have, or might want in the future to have hormones since they've become an available medical treatment. What it's always been about is certain cultures' historical discomfort with anything that exists outside of rigidly defined and extremely limited in scope gender roles and expectations *cough*Abrahamic religions*cough*.
    I think sadly its "one of those things" that will take a long time to work out. It seems many have been raised over the decades and in previous generations to have puritanical belief systems. We look just 40 years ago where "Lucy" couldnt show that she was pregnant on tv, couples had to have separate beds and gays were hidden away. Its changed a lot but we still arent there and as people open up about their lifestyles there will still be many that dont understand or want to understand. I know its not easy but a friend of one of my kids thats trans gendered considers herself a "pioneer" in that she is paving the way for future generations. She knows the road is tough and at times seems impossible, but also knows in a decade or two life will be very different. If we think about things long term, we always move forward even if there are steps back along the way.

    The Original Post is a false premise. No one ever said that- or if they did, they are to the maximum extreme.

    I'm not the one attempting to force my beliefs, that just happens to be the typical response whenever anyone stands up for what they believe. You may note I said I do not respect, I did not say what anyone can and cannot act like or feel.

    You need the approved secret decoder ring to figure out when judge is judge and when it's just secular humanist wisdom.

    By the same logic, PTSD therapy isn't medically necessary either. Sure, people with PTSD may be suffering psychological trauma - but would you call treatment "medically necessary?"
