Do you believe in being born 'transgendered'?

Or do you think the person just gets tired of being a girl or a boy and wants to switch to see if the grass is greener?

  • I don't think it's a valid physical disorder, I think it's a serious psychological illness. I won't go so far as to call it a crock, but I do think that in order to be so unhappy with yourself that you would endure surgery just shows how deep the mental illness goes.

    I don't support the surgery itself as I feel that it goes horribly against biology and the person having the surgery will NEVER be the gender they wish to be, you can't change DNA, once a man/woman, always a man/woman. I would never discriminate against the person, though, and would always threat him or her with compassion and respect.

  • Of I do, I have dealt with many transgenders and it is a horrible feeling to feel you are trapped in the wrong body, there is no choosing here at all.

  • For some people yes, I do believe being born as a transgendered is very valid and very real. It is not anything they would ever ask to have in those cases, I am sure.

    And sadly, for other individuals I do believe it is not something that they were born with, but instead something that interests them for other reasons. There are some very experimental individuals in our society, and there are some very mixed up individuals too. The difficult thing is to sort the two groups out, which can contribute to the skepticism, in my opinion.
