Why should a person get to define their gender?

I have no problem with genuine cases but the question is what is a genuine case? Just because someone claims to be transgender does not mean it is legitimate. Other avenues of treatment need to be investigated first before any major decisions are made concerning invasive surgery.

The problem is there is so much hysteria surrounding this subject it is often not easy to have a rational conversation.

“Treatment”? What kind of treatment would you suggest? Electroshock? Exorcism?

It is not the transgenders who act hysterically. Their problem is the hysterical response toward a self identified transgender, as if it were a morally evil thing.

If by law a corporation can claim personhood, a person should be able by law to claim genderhood, don’t you think?

It’s up to a trained professional to make a determination about someone’s medical problems, not non-professionals who seek to self-diagnose.

Your approach seems to advocate treatment-on-demand, which is a disastrous idea.

Diagnose what?

Treatment for what?  These individuals can be (and are) some the most creative minds. Unless they commit a real crimes, leave them alone and accept their mindset. You can certainly tell them that you disagree, but most importandly, listen to their brain when they speak. Hear the words, then you will find the person you are dealing with , not an image.
