@majorp a transperson having mental health problems is just as likely as a cisgender individual. That doesn't mean they correlate. Although a transperson may be more susceptible to having mental health issues due to societal pressures and constant discrimination for being who they are.
@majorp comparing transpeople to fairies ... really??
LGBT or LGBT or LGBTQIA all acceptable " How would the nurse know the person was transgender she was being polite by saying sir" agreed. You know people can be assholes even if transgender. That person, if it happened as described, was being an asshole.

In addition, ...
@burneside can you send me a link to your published study, of your years of research, in a scientific journal? I'd be interested in how you are right and hundreds of other studies are wrong.

@majorp there is a difference between gender and sex. A transgender person doesn't just decide they are a different gender suddenly. It is a struggle for years, hopefully with counselling if needed. People accept people being born with a genetic condition without question but someone born knowing they are a different gender than what was assigned during fetal development that is hard for ...
