I don't get it, and I don't understand that out of all the mental illness, Gender Identity Disorder gets comments like "she's beeeeautiful", or "SHE'S a hero". Can anyone explain it to me?

"Hero" and "mental illness" are both terrible words to describe this.
Basically, we are both male and female. Take a piece of paper, cover up half of your face and look in a mirror at the other half. Do this back and forth until you figure out which side is more masculine and feminine.
The bodies that we live in are NOT who we are. Think of a someone born as a man who feels like a woman. Basically, he was born with a handicap. Instead of being blind, deaf or missing limbs, this person was born as the wrong sex.
This is an exciting time in the growth of humanity as we are learning to accept people for who they are, and not what they look like.
Try to understand what it would be like to pretend to be one person who you are not; your entire life is a lie and you suffer because no one understands. It takes an immense amount of courage to announce to everyone that you are changing sexes. Losing a job or getting a divorce, moving etc takes courage and are big life changes. Changes sexes, whew, I can only imagine.0
