You're either going a long way at being obtuse, or you really cannot comprehend the intricacies of language. Perhaps English is not your first language? My mind does not match the body I was born with, ergo a deformity has taken place. It is a deformity to be placed in the wrong body.
With yourself, if you identify as male, the body you were born with, you have no such problem.
You are the second one that calls me obtuse. If you are trying to offend me, then you have certainly succeed.
First you call men deformed (and, yes I am a man), then you call me obtuse and further insult me by telling me I have no clue about language.
I certainly had a lot of sympathy for the condition transpersons have. But this kind of behavior have put me off. Not sure if I have any more sympathy towards you or other people that have similar condition if this is the what I can expect from you and them.
I am sorry to say that.
Let me explain.
What is NOT deformed for a cisgender male MAY BE for a person whose hypothalamus has a female neuron-count and structure.
Or to be even more simple, if you are NOT trans then it's not a deformity but if you ARE trans then it might be.
Now a question. Why didn't you understand that when Kojiro said it several different ways? I'm not attacking you, i ask out of concern for you. You might have an undiagnosed eyesight problem or dyslexia or similar, and several people i know had sudden difficulty making sense of some sentences before they had strokes or had Bells Palsy, so it might be worth checking with a doctor.

Great... so I come back to this thread after a significant number of days, and the first thing I see, is you deliberately misreading, misrepresenting, and drawing about yourself a cloak of righteous indignation?
Your conduct is not conducive to productive discussion. You are learning nothing because you seem not to want to, and that is your right. But you have no right to prevent others from doing so by wasting their precious time!
Good grief... get a grip on yourself.

I did get your message and thank you for the support.
I am a trans-man. I was in kindergarten in the 70's, back when almost nobody knew about us. So I kept quiet and hid. But I didn't know how damaged I would be by being a "girl' on the outside, but being a boy inside. I'm glad some kids are coming out when young now.
