Transsexualism is certainly one of the more stranger aspects of the Human psyche/condition.
And one that requires further study, i agree there.

Have you ever done any study on the subject? Read any studies?
Gender is not sex, but it may be prenatally determined. Gender is the inner sense, the identity of being male or female or niether or somewhere in between. I would be the first to say I don't understand it either, and I'm a gay male.
Not understanding and even not "agreeing" with someone elses identity is not a reason to discriminate against them, is it?
Understanding other people is part of the challenge of life, isn' t it?
Being human not a gender is great ... unfortuneately, as we see here, some people want to regulate/exclude others based on their own concepts and beliefs about gender ... rather than just being human.
