Despite all the facts that there are variations with our own biology that cause someone of their birth gender to identify as another, there are still many who are against even listening to the debate. Although it may be unreasonable to argue against science, people are still afraid and confused about what being transgender really means and how it affects our culture. And just as the scientific American article stated, I can understand why someone would have those views, just as I did once. But I also understand it does not change my worldviews or way of being, only accepting of those around me. I can only listen, see their point of view, and respectfully show them the facts and advantages of acceptance.
