As much as I have tried to accept it- I WANT to accept it, even, I just cannot bring myself to understand being transgender. I will treat a trans person with respect, because at the end of the day they are still a person, but privately I just don't understand it. I don't see why one would want to change their gender, especially to the extent that they would get surgeries to mutilate their body parts.
It feels like it crosses some sort of line, to the point of being so different from the norm that it's anomalous- I can get being gay or lesbian, what one finds attractive is subjective, but your sex is objective- it cannot be changed based on your feelings. as such, I don't see why we try to change it in the first place.
Once again, if you are transgender, I will be respectful, even friendly towards you. but I just can't shake these thoughts, no matter how hard I try, no matter how hard I want to.
