“ Transgender women are also more prone to depression and have higher suicide rates than the general population.”

If that is the case, and I have read many reports and statistics suggesting it is, it suggests, does it not, that people should think long and hard before starting to transition.
Instead of people being counselled to be cautious before taking irrevocable steps, which was the case until quite recently, the plague of politically correct thinking had caused politicians and opinion makers to support the ridiculous proposition that it is a human right for people to choose their own sex on a whim. This has only led to a lot of people jumping on the bandwagon of what has become a fad fashion.
And yet if any of those people who support such unscientific attitudes to human reproductive biology were face with the proposition that evolution is wrong and the truth is some divine being created the universe as relief for boredom on a wet Tuesday afternoon, they would throw a hissy fit and start yelling about “the science.”

Well you can’t have it both ways. Either you believe biology and accept that differences dictated soon after conception (which are far more profound than merely different genital configurations,) are irrevocable, or you accept that the beliefs of religious fundamentalists are just as valid as yours or mine, and that some people will never accept the validity of transgender people.

My position is I can accept people who go through the whole surgical process, but some person who just puts on a dress instead of a suit or vice versa and demands to be legally deemed to have changed sex are just frauds.
