My Thoughts on Transgender

In nature in the human species there are genetic mutations that cause various things to occur.  We see people born with both male/female genitalia.  We see conjoined twins.  We see people born with third nipples.  We even see people who [essentially] grow an antler/horn.

Aside from all of those visible mutations, there are even invisible mutations that we socially accept and don’t deny the existence of.  Some people are genetically predisposed to cancer, MS, or Huntington’s, yet we don’t claim it is impossible, doesn’t exist, or is all in their head.  It isn’t “taboo” or “gross”, it just exists and we know it.  We eventually see the side effects of it.

This leads me to my next question.  Why is it so hard to accept that there is, perhaps, a genetic mutation in our DNA that causes somebody to be born into the wrong body?  Just because it is invisible to us, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist, yet some short-sighted individuals want to deny that it happens.  If you can be born with both male/female genitalia yet still feel like a “male” or a “female”, is it so far-fetched to believe that somebody can be born with a penis, despite their brain saying they’re a woman?  Why must we stay so close minded as a society and insist we stay within a binary system?
