@tdx3fan: Since your So in the dark let me clear things up for you. First “Transgendered” is a mental Illness in fact it’s not even a word. That said having Gender Dysphoria is a legitimate medical condition that means person is a GID transsexual for which the cure is gender reassignment surgery according to the DSMIV. However there are people that are transgender and for many of them surgery isn’t an interest or a necessity. You should really educate yourself on the different groups out there for NOT everyone who dresses in clothes opposite their birth sex is transgender. Theres CDers, Drag Queens, Transvestites none of which live as the opposite gender but enjoy dressing up occasionally. As for those who feel the need to have a complete sex change to be who they we’re meant to be and are driven by a deep desire to feel whole and complete the need for GRS surgery imperative, those individuals are transsexuals.
