I do not think that we should allow transgender people to change their gender as that teaches people to ignore basic biologie that you are born either male or female, the LGBT+ community seem to think that gender is a flexible thing such as being able to legally change your name and can be changed because "that's how they feel inside" we as decent people should not support the genital mutilation that happens with gender reassignment surgeries.

We should allow transgender people to live as the gender they are inside, because that is the basic human right of bodily autonomy. Even people who personally disagree with transgender people should still support the right to live your life the way you wish to. It is none of your business, just as the clothes a stranger wears is not your business.

So, I would debate you, but I don't believe the transgender community even changes their gender. They merely would change their own appearance in order for it to match the gender that they have, which for transgender is different from their sex.

Actually, the LGBT community sees gender and biological sex as two different things. Neither are something that is changed by choice, however. A person is transgender when their gender doesn't match their biological sex.

Gender is determined by genetic and environmental factors, whereas biological sex is just determined by biology. Gender cannot just be changed by choice, and usually you're stuck with the gender you get through genetic and environmental factors.
