I can't help but take issue with the fact that transgender people are messing around with nature. I have tried understanding the LGBT culture and I do not have any qualms with homosexuality but I cannot bring myself to understand transgender. I am an open-minded person, and I would never disrespect a transgender person, but I can't help but feel confused as to why it's okay to alter our natural bodies so significantly. There was recently an article in CNN about a six-year-old trans and I thought to myself, (s)he is SIX! The parents are making the decision for this child. Children play with hotwheels and barbies, wear skirts and pants, etc. Children need to be children and grow to make their own decisions about sexuality. Even if my son prefers dolls over matchbox cars, I'm not going to take him in for surgery. I'll tell him- tough bananas. You were born this way, and it's ridiculous to undermine nature.
I don't mean any offense in my post, but these are my feelings and I am looking for some better understanding.
