How is a man who becomes a woman still a man, or a woman becoming a man, how are they still a woman? Also, why do you put the transitioned sex in quotes? Seems a little strange.
A man who becomes a woman cannot get pregnant. A man who becomes a woman cannot naturally lactate. A man who becomes a woman does not undergo a natural monthly period. And a woman who becomes a man does not magically sprout an adam's apple or penis. My point is that we can subject men and women to countless surgeries, pills, and serums, but at the end of the day, these are cosmetic and nothing more. Inside, and we're talking biologically and not spiritually, you're either male or female (barring rare exceptions, which aren't the topic here).
It's not my intent to be insulting. I can't imagine how much it must stink to be a transgender and hear everyone tell you, 'You shouldn't do this or be involved in that'. I'm not in your position and so I'll never fully be able to appreciate or understand your point of view. That's the sad reality we face... I can grasp your points, your wants, and so forth, but I'll never fully be able to appreciate them.
But that goes both ways. If you were to step in a ring with a woman tomorrow, I'd not be able to help but see what is in my world a man fighting a woman. Because to me, you were born a man, still have male functions, and are a man internally. I know you can't appreciate how I feel about the situation, but again, that's our dilemma... we'll always be on two different wavelengths regarding certain issues.
It doesn't necessarily make me a bad person. I've often championed equality, but some areas are more sensitive than others, and rightfully so. This is one of those areas for me.
