The correct term is “transgender” — not transgendered. I am sorry to hear that you are unable to educate yourself on matters like these and still get offended about trans rights. Still, your transphobia has no place on my page. My platform is about opening minds and discussing equality. When discussions are constructive, I will gladly welcome feedback. When they are biased, transphobic, and ignorant (such as yours) I frankly can’t take it seriously, and it is just another stark reminder of all of the work we have to do as a society. Trans rights do not affect the “normally gendered.” The fact that you are even proclaiming some genders as “normal” implies that others are not and is further proof of your unwillingness to accept and learn.

As for your argument on the psychological basis of problems like erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation, it seems you just don’t understand the inner workings of those diagnoses. A “competent medical health professional” would probably agree with me, a highly educated psychology major, on the fact that some diseases in the DSM-5 are based on a variety of things including mental, physiological and somatic causes, which is why they are difficult to classify and should not be stigmatized, similar to how we classify and stigmatize gender dysphoria. I suggest that you read up on this topic a little bit more or take a look into the history of psychology to gain some more understanding about how this process works.

Thanks for reading! Good luck to you, and I hope that you continue to educate yourself and recognize your privilege. Perhaps it will be good fuel one day if you ever do want to have a constructive discussion instead. Together we all have the power to learn more about ourselves and each other, and to continue striving for equity in all forms.
