    There are some things that I can agree, need to be discussed and debated, but honestly I don’t think this is one of them. I realize there are people born with both sets of genitalia, and that there was no choice involved. But if one is so confused about what gender they are and denies the obvious, I really think they are in need of help, not hormone therapy and surgery. There is the constant need of shots or medication, but it doesn’t change the DNA that one is born with. That’s not hate, folks, that’s reality. Sure, surgery & meds can be done, but you are still what you were when you’re born, regardless of appearance. I don’t think these who want to change so badly that they are willing to undergo surgery and a lifetime of medication should be shunned like lepers, but I don’t know how I would react to them either. I am not, however willing to let so very few people set the rules for the vast majority of us who are comfortable in our own skin.

    I’m amazed,your presentation of social navigation within our trending gender parameters is highly courageous, and so necessary. My thought experience into this material opens a pathway to the correlation of our bodies, their chemistry, and how much self-determination we truly have as we travel through our earthly lifespans. On a person to person level, I have discovered it is best to default to basic courtesy with initial eye contact; let each individual help you understand how they like to relate, rather than meeting them with an established set of ideas. Fact is-each human being is unique, and individual.
