Transgender operations go against the ways of nature. People who become men who are woman or vice versa go against what nature had pegged you at. Its weird and unnatural.

Con

Not all of that is true, some people are born a male with the mind and chromosomes of a female or vice versa. those who are born like this have no control over it. weird or not it should be none of your concern if you aren't the one who wants the operation. The operation is not hurting anyone and we have no right to ban something that has no effect on society but an increase in diversity. if we were all the same life would be pretty lame and who are we to judge what is normal.

If a person feels so strongly enough about their gender that they are willing to go under the knife for it then who are we to say anything. Whether someone wants to be male of female does not effect us as individuals. So we should allow them to make their own choices in life, because whether a man dresses as a man or a woman how is it actually effecting your personal life?

Transgender people are thoroughly sick people that should not be mutilated like this. Transgender people should receive treatment just how mentally ill people receive treatment.

What reason is there to ban this? The only thing you (Pro) are saying is that it makes you uncomfortable and you don't want it to happen. The mindset of a person does not have to match the body they were given, and even if they are comfortable with their genitalia, they do NOT need to succumb to gender roles. Saying they should not be able to get the surgery they want is suppressing them more than they already are, and it isn't your (Pro) place to say what they can and can't recieve. Suck it up.

Personally, I am on the con side of this argument. Most trans people feel trapped in their natural male/ female body and would like to fully change themselves. Because of this, I feel that not giving these people the right to physically express who they really are is oppressing and cruel. Being in their natural body, they are basically living a life in a hellish prison.

Transgender operations allow for freedom of expression which should be encouraged. For further advances in society to occur unique decisions need to be allowed.
