I believe that they are mentally ill, and need help. Whether that's in-home or in an institution, I don't know. I do know that your gender comes down to a chromosome and what you were born with between your legs. It's not a matter of faith to decide whether one is male or female. Maybe a man doesn't quite fit the "mold". It makes him a unique man, not a woman.
I know some, am even related to one "trans-person". I don't hate people who are transgendered. I pity them, feel so sorry. I can never fathom how they feel, and I'm grateful for that, but I so wish that they could get the help they need rather than have their fantasies egged on by society. It brings me to tears to know how people I call, or could call friends and family choose to sever what they are for what they cannot be.2

No absolutely not. They have gender dysmorphia/dysphoria.
As a person who suffered from body dysmorphia for many years (since ALL dysmorphia has the same root definition) I can say that without a shadow of a doubt transexuals are mentally ill. People don't tell anorexics or bulimics or people with Body Dysmorphic Disorder they are healthy so why in the hell would they do it with transpeople.
That being said, because of my dysmorphia I have sympathy and an understanding for transexuals others do not. Not even other LGBT people understand dysmorphia like I do. It's a very debilitating, devastating and painful disorder. Many people with it suicide because it's a living hell. The more complicated the fixation the worse it will be to recover. Most trans people KNOW they will never be the opposite gender. They only get surgery to alleviate the symptoms of dysphoria/dysmorphia. Just like a person with dysmorphia about their face or body will get repeated plastic surgeries to feel better and more beautiful. You can literally have a dysmorphia about anything about you. Some people have species dysmorphia (otherkins) which in my opinion is the worst type there is.
YOU CANNOT become a biological woman from being a man. Men cannot grow wombs or a functioning vagina. They can never give birth. They are living a lie. They are completely delusional. They need intensive professional help. These are scientific facts.0
