Agreed!
It all comes down to ethics which are very subjective.
Take for instance vaccination.
Some people find it very unethical to have any kind of medical intervention because of their religion.
I personally find that very unethical.

ETA: I find it unethical when these people decide for others. Like letting their children die when there is a cure.

You are assuming it is psychological.
Who says it isn't biological?
We simply don't know.

Then for that matter who is to say it's not a spiritual dilemma?

Like i said its a dam minefield if ever there was one but end of the day people should be free to do as they wish without having to endure the wrath of other judgmental individuals.

Should they not?

Yes I edited my post to clarify my statement.
Whatever people decide for themselves, live and let live. As long as they don't hurt others in the process.

My bad, but is it any wonder when they live in a world that judges and discriminates against them and where they feel that they cannot fit in no matter how hard they try?

I dont understand them, but nether do i wish to see them come to harm, self inflicted or otherwise.

That's because bigots tend to be very mean.

Absolutely!

We don't know what is causing this fenomenon.
And as long as we don't understand it fully, we will have to do with what means we have now to alleviate suffering. Preventing suicides and such.

If anything, they're working on way to cure the rest of us.

How dare we be straight and have a gender that matches our body?

If you think curing transgender people is what is needed then you obviously don't understand the issue they are facing.

Curing gays has worked out great, I'm sure we could get them all into a room and beat them over the head with a bible until they become normal, like you.

it would be nice...not for having the correct body and gender, but to cure discrimination / bigotry / miserableness and hatred

That's pretty easy. First you have to recognize when you simply cannot tolerate that other people have different opinions from yourself and stop belittling them for it and then blaming them for hate.

Same here, which is why I don't understand the opposition to what the OP is suggesting.

In fact, you just perfectly described my social anxiety disorder. Are you prepared to join my crusade in ridding the world of people who make me uncomfortable?

It doesnt make one a bigot when you call someone else out for bigotry hate or discrimination, I think you may just be confused

What you need to be accept is that everyone is a product of society even pedophiles, serial killers and other undesirables.

Thing is through pedophiles and serial killers hurt other people!

Who do transsexuals hurt???


Themselves, but that is their right.

While that's inherently true, they tend to be mean to all other sorts of demographics that don't fit into their spectrum of reality, yet it seems that there is a higher suicide rate among the trans demographic. So it's a little ingenious to try to blame the suicide rate on just bigots. There's a very strong possibility that there's something else at play causing such a high rate.

Without real research and discussions void of any bias, there's no real way to tackle the issue though, sadly.

Gender dysphoria is a medical condition for which hormone therapy and gender reassignment surgery are used as treatments. Only a progressive liberal SJW with a hidden agenda would suggest that there is no need for a cure.

the cure is hormones and reassignment surgery

Why do so many still kill themselves after surgery if they're "cured"?
