Actually, neither side is “science.” There is, so far, no evidence of a biological basis for gender dysphoria, so the idea that it is a mental illness is still viable.

And, if it turns out to be a mental illness, drastic surgery and hormone treatments for it are going to look pretty strange to future generations.

But be that as it may, those like McHugh who advocate a psychiatric approach and those like Think Progress who consider anyone who is dubious about surgery/hormones to be a “transphobic” bigot are both ideologues.
