Transgender and it's flawed logic is the topic, you can't use flawed logic to go around beating up women. By all definitions (chromosomal, reproductive, body/bone structure and simple eyes and common sense), removed sex organs and some added hormones do not make a woman. If the person involved is an mma fan and dreams of beating up women in mma, tough luck. Sometimes dreams are incompatible, either choose the op or choose mma. In any case the op is reversible to some extent, so there's always the choice there to go back and practice mma with men.
Cowgirl is a good, calm, polite person and has some great humor and insights on MMA as a poster. I can't play party to this delusion of political correctness though. He deserves everyone's courtesy and respect as a person and poster, but you can't force people to accept a false reality just because you want it. This whole thing about using the correct pronoun without any sort of logic just sounds like a child's tantrum. I'm sorry, one can't earn the right to a lie, it just doesn't work that way. One can't earn the right to call the grass purple, go ahead and call it what you want, other people will still call it green because that's what they see.
I don't see why an obviously flawed and incomplete operation to pretend a false reality, with ALL OF SOCIETY forced to play along, is the only solution to the condition or desire to transform? Cowgirl said it's about a condition like depression, then why not address it psychologically and discuss the root issues and desires involved, with care, sensitivity and attention, instead of surgically? The op isn't even that old, how did people cope before that?
MC and SPG have already brought up the logic, definitions and paralells so I'm not going to belabor the point ... no matter how nice the emperor, someone is always going to point out the lack of clothes.
