It's not hard to grasp people...when a baby is formed in the womb, gender is formed it two totally separate processes: first, the physical gender is decided simply by which genitals ultimately form. This process happens completely separate from the second process, which is the mental, brain-based gender. This gender process entails what gender the forming infant will "feel" itself to be. In a transgender person, these processes do not agree with one another, which causes the person, as they grow up, to be well aware of what their genitals say their gender is, but being told by their own brain that their genitals are not the right ones, leading many people who are unable to afford gender reassignment surgery to even mutilate their own genitals to be the gender they feel they should be. Transgenderism is real, it`s not a religious issue, it`s (for lack of a better term) a birth defect real as a hare lip, a club foot or any other anomaly, and it is painful for those who go t

@Taylor_stone that was a really cool thing to do with your friend, i've noticed that guys usually find it harder to accept transgender people especially if they`re male to female.

zombunny, ukulelemike's comparison of transgendered people to rapists and pedophiles is not only nonsensical, it is hate speech.
But as a middle-aged male, ukulelemike is right in the key demographic of both rapists and pedophiles.
The predominant evidence is that neither rape nor pedophilia are `how someone is born`. But that is not the key sickness in ukulelemike`s argument. Rape is abusive and harmful, it is the coerced violation of someone`s authority over their own body, and the pedophilia ukulelemike thinks about sooooo much, is a form of rape.
Being transgendered is harmless, but rape is intrinsically harmful, and ukulelemike is apparently unable to tell the difference.
He should not be allowed to be alone with anyone, under any circumstances.
