By the time we develop the technology to deliver the type of cure you're talking about (see the movie GATTACA), things will go well beyond curing transgenderism. We'll pretty much end up creating a new species based on human genes. And the most practical way of 'curing' genetic conditions will be to reject the genetic materials before insemination ensuring those with potential for developing such conditions are never born.
If we come up with the ability to change gender (not only cosmetically but functionally) after development, everyone will have far more options to choose from than just male or female (maybe demigods, angels, vampires etc...). I don't think there is a need to look for a cure such as the one you're talking about; it will simply arise from other technology and evolution will eliminate the need for a cure.
They're just people.
As long as they don't hurt anyone, I don't care what they do, because it doesn't personally affect (or bother) me.
I only say a cure because, well, what's better, paying a ton of cash and risking your life to feel normal, or just feeling normal from the start..?
I admit I dont' understand the trans thing, but I am for equal rights of all.
