They should not be allowed.
They should be allowed.
That is not how we are meant to be. Gay marriage should never have been legalized
I think we all should read the Bible and see what it says.
"Transgender operations" are really bodily mutilation operations. When people cut themselves out of stress or anxiety, we try to stop them from cutting themselves and refer them to behavioral therapy. Shouldn't we do the same with transgenders? Allowing them to undergo surgical change is counterproductive. It will only reinforce their mental disorder.
Look, gay marriage is alright. But changing your gender is downright impossible and should not be socially OR legally accepted. It's basic biology, people. XX is female XY is male. What's between your legs and in your chromosomes determines what you are, NOT your mentality. I'm fed up with society inventing new ways to be a special snowflake. Pass 4th grade biology and you'll know the real truth about sex and gender.
A stable society demands order, and degeneracy should not be exaulted the way it is.
It's self mutilation and there's no difference in suicide rates before and after operation.
Where are all the people who like freedom at?
There is no good reason to prevent it from happening. This isn't something that will hurt other people's freedom. Even for those which view transgender-ism as a mental disease, a good way to treat it would be to let them transition.
They should be allowed, but those who want to get one should be encouraged to seek treatment.
There is a demand, there should be a supply. The only reason it shouldn't is if it is inherently bad for society which it isn't. But I do think that there should be some sort of psychological evaluation done pre-op, which there already is, at least in America, so I don't see the problem.
So much for neo-cons talking about "small government."
It's their body.
After reading the comments, I've become more grateful that I've grown up in a country where abrahamic religion isn't anywhere near a majority.
For crying out loud how is this even an issue?
Everyone has a right to their own body. If we take away the right to that, what else can we take away? For as long as people are allowed to receive surgery to alter their breasts and faces, or receive medical surgery to fix a problem within their body, trans people should be allowed to receive the surgeries they desire.
