Uh huh. A sexual fetish is not the same thing as being a transgender person. Pedophilia is not the same thing as being a transgender person.
The 'argument' breaks down when certain people like Obama, and his followers try to argue SCIENCE for the win.
There are two sexes for homo sapiens.
Male, and female.
There is NO third one.
Homo sapiens (Latin: "wise person") is the binomial nomenclature (also known as the scientific name) for the only extant human species.
For those that don't know what BINOMIAL means.
How about people stop making up words.
POLITICAL words at that.

Gender transition is now a medically necessary procedure?
I agree with the abortions part, as it is medically necessary, even life saving at times.

They determine your orientation.
You aren't a gay man who prefers blonde women with big boobs.
You aren't a gay woman who prefers tall bearded brunettes with chest hair.
You saying preference doesn't determine orientation doesn't make it so.
Chicken and the egg.
Why don't you answer a series of yes and no questions so there could be an actual debate. Been plenty put out there but everyone wants to dodge them.
Luk is what is called intersex – someone with genitalia, reproductive organs and sometimes a set of chromosomes that do not conform to what’s expected of either sex.
Born with vestiges of male genitals and so classified as male, it was only in his teens, when he started to develop breasts, suffer stomach cramps and see blood in his urine that Luk was diagnosed as genetically male but suffering from a condition in which the body is resistant to hormones, such as testosterone, that control the development of male traits. And Luk was 36 before a physical examination revealed an undeveloped uterus and vagina, allowing doctors to classify Luk as hermaphrodite.
How is androgyny connected to giftedness and creativity? According to Silverman (1993), Tolan (1997), Sheely (2000), Piirto (2004), Kerr (1997), Kerr & Cohn (2001) many highly gifted and creative children tend to be androgynous. Jonsson and Carlsson (2000) observed that those who were evaluated using the BSRI and scored as highly androgynous and low, undifferentiated also displayed higher creative functioning. According to Sheely (2000) few highly gifted people conform to gender-role stereotypes and therefore are more androgynous. Tolan (1997) has also found that highly gifted children are more androgynous than other children; they tend to reject strict gender identities. In other words, psychological androgyny should be considered a trait of giftedness. - See more at: sengifted.org...
