Being transgender should absolutely be a disorder and serious medical condition if nothing more…
Jamie Shupe

I’d only hesitate to apply the assumption that all trans people want access to medical treatment because we’re trying to look/be cis or even please cis people. My want for surgery has nothing to do with pleasing cis people and everything to do with feeling okay in my own body. There’s nothing I can do to my body to make people gender me correctly, so I don’t see it as having anything to do with society. I just don’t want people to be defined out of medical assistance because of the whims of cis people or be denied because they don’t fit into those boxes.
