Pro

think about it this way. When you change lothes, its healthy. Same with gender.
Arganger

Con

Transgenderism comes with a huge risk of suicide, and is more common in victims of abuse. A much bigger deal than pants.

However, @12edwarj

Comparing trangenderism to clothing is a huge insult. What the heck man.

Being transgender is healthy in itself. it is better for a person's mental health to be who they want to be rather than what society dictates. The judgement of society is what makes the suicide rates high. This is a quote from your link Arganger:

"Results:
The suicide attempt rate among transgender persons ranges from 32% to 50% across the countries. Gender-based victimization, discrimination, bullying, violence, being rejected by the family, friends, and community; harassment by intimate partner, family members, police and public; discrimination and ill treatment at health-care system are the major risk factors that influence the suicidal behavior among transgender persons.

Conclusion:
In spite of facing a number of hardships in their day-to-day life, the transgender community holds a number of resiliency factors. Further, this community needs to be supported to strengthen their resiliency factors and draw culturally sensitive and transgender-inclusive suicide prevention strategies and increase protective factors to tackle this high rate of suicidality."
