My heart goes out to transgender people because being trapped in the wrong body must be hell. A good friend of mine tried to have a sex change back in the 1970's and if I hadn't gone with him to the Chelsea Hospital to see his consultant back then, I would never have believed the medical establishment's attitude towards his problem. Any idiot could see he was more feminine than male and no one in the office had a problem with him - just the establishment in general .
Our preconceived ideas come basically from religious teaching which only wants men to marry women so they have children and perpetuate the race for rulers and the religious to exploit. I suspect without the poison spread by religious dogma these people would be accepted and able to change into who they really are.
We should all know how this is being dealt with is cruel, simply by the suicide rate. Its a problem that people from both rich and poor backgrounds have to face and it could be made easier for them.
