    It's always a phase.
    That's patently false since some people continue to identify as transgender for their entire lives.

    Do you think transgender people transition for shits and giggles or something? When a gender identity different to that assigned at birth is consistently expressed, transitioning has a very strong track record of improving people's reported happiness.
    I don't doubt that. Have you ever heard of choice-supportive bias?
