I was wondering, based of a past post that was removed, and some of the answers given:

Do you being transgendered is something you are born as or is it a mental illness?

For clarification, transgender is an umbrella terms that covers anyone who feels they were born as the wrong gender and identifies as other then what he or she was born as. This is not dependant on surgeries.

I'm more prone to say "born that way". I feel that it could be a chemical imbalance, but I wouldn't say mental disorder--which implies it could be managed by therapy or medication.
