Alright, this is my first post but don't go easy on me.
Let's get right down to it.

1. Quite simply, when we're born we are either male or a female.
2. Having false beliefs about our gender identity can be classified as a disorder. Think of an anorexic who thinks (s)he's fat when (s)he's really not.

I believe people with any type of disorder deserve compassion. This includes not indulging their false beliefs about themselves, just as we shouldn't go around telling anorexics their fat
