The human body is a complicated thing.
Some species are born one sex and change naturally.
In actual scientific and anatomical fact, you CAN change your sex/gender if you want to – that’s why it’s called a SEX CHANGE (reproductive organ change) operation. What you can’t change is your DNA, which is why people who choose to undergo the operations supplement with hormone therapy to help them maintain their chosen sex and override their DNAs instructions on specific hormone levels.
Bodily autonomy is of the utmost importance as a human right. We are all human beings and everyone deserves the same basic rights. Bottom line, trans and gender non-conforming people want to be treated like people. They are just trying to find happiness like everyone else.
If you are using the argument that it’s simply not “natural” to be transsexual. Please refer to the natural world and you will see that many animals have sex changes.
Why do people feel the need to debate on something that doesn’t even have an impact on their own lives, and that has for only consequence to hurt some people, make them hate themselves, feel worthless, and kill themselves if they weren’t already killed by someone else? Really, it’s beyond my understanding capacities. I always think that if these type of people would put all this energy into something good, wouldn’t this be a wonderful world. Even if you don’t agree with this, it is not really any of your business.
