  •  That because sex is between the legs (11+ / 0-)

    While gender is between the ears. There are far too many people who really believe that the best solution for transgendered people is to (somehow) make the brain match the body. As absurd and puerile as that idea is, it's still prevalent in many professional circles. Here's the thing: I told my therapist a long, long time ago that if I was gay, I wouldn't have a problem. If I was a transvestite, I wouldn't have a problem. If I was a gay transvestite, I wouldn't have a problem. Even if it was possible to somehow remove the "trans" from me, it's such a fundamental part of who I am that you would be left with someone other than me. The "me" that's typing this wouldn't be here.
