ok so there's been a lot of talk lately about itso i figured id ask. why would you do something like that? there's being who you are and being who you want to be but isn't what you are what you were born as. i mean for example caitlyyn jener isn't a woman he just looks vaigly like one. im not judging or putting anyone down. i just think iits worth it to understand.
if anyone is transgender or transitioning id like to hear from you.

As a transsexual, I can answer this.
Its because although you are born as one gender, thats not who you feel you are. Like you're living a huge lie not only to yourself but others. You were only born in the wrong body, it feels like to some. To me, I always knew something was wrong. It just took me a while to realize what. I'm still coming to terms with it in some cases, like telling people of my childhood and such, but overall its gotten easier.
I'm assuming you're male. Do you feel comfortable looking at yourself in the mirror, seeing you have a penis and balls, seeing no breasts? Some people aren't so lucky and wake up daily to what they don't want but are forced to acknowledge they have. Some people look and see the gender they know they shouldn't be in the mirror. Some people hear them being referred to as the very gender they shouldn't be, have to fill out applications and forms with the same gender they don't feel they are, and that can be the most uncomfortable experience. How would you feel to be called "her" and "ma'am" and "woman", but feel in you are male in the inside and hate that not many people can understand that?
Its not something you can understand fully unless you are transsexual, yet it's not just changing your body. It's fixing what got messed up so you are who you are both inside and out.3
