I am sure everyone will hate for this……
I like to consider myself a pretty open minded individual. I have friends from all races, all religions, and all sexual preferences.
I honestly, no matter how much I read into it, or talk to people like them, I can’t wrap my head around transgender.
You are either a man or a woman. To thin otherwise in a mental illness. It should be treated not embraced.
To allow small children to start to partake in hormone therapy for sex changes and altering their natural path through puberty is child abuse.
They need medication and therapy, not a parade.
We fight against FGM and yet allow people to cut off those same parts we raise awareness to save because they “feel” mannish for a while? We fight to stop circumcision and yet allow young men to chop off their penis entirely?
What is wrong with you people? This is body mutilation. This is no different than people who partake in scarification, cutting, or other body mutilating acts.
We are not “being open minded” we are perpetuating that mental illness is ok, and that it doesn’t need to be treated. Give your heads a shake people.
