  • View Poll Results: What are your views on transgender people?
    Transgender people are not really a different gender to the one traditionally associated with their sex
    Transgender people ARE a different gender to the one traditionally associated with their sex
    Transgender people are not only a different gender, but also a different sex to the one they were "assigned" at birth

    You have those words the wrong way round, but otherwise I agree.
    I thought "gender" was your biology and sex was the socially conceived identity surrounding it...? are you sure? i.e. transsexuals aren't necessarily those that have had surguries to "transition", whereas transgendered individuals have?

    edit: wait, nope, you're 100% correct - my bad

    I agree that trans people are a different gender, but they cannot possibly be a different sex.

    Well I'm completely accepting of transgender people. However, the thing I think is bad is that there is so much pressure to be either male or female, and some people can't just accept that there are feminine men and masculine women. So yes, if it makes you happy, go for it, but don't feel pressured into presenting as a woman just because you might be a girly guy
