I have another perspective of transgender, and that, in some cases, may be entrepreneurial, IE, a 7th grade boy resides he wants to access the girls locker room, and elects to declare himself of a female mindset, transitioning and availing himself of those discoveries, but then, that same boy discovers that the females he was so interested in discovering, where actually more interested in the boys football team members, so as a 10th grader, decides too transition back to a male, too join the football team.There's a mental aspect in it. People that have a few tats aren't in my classification as mental, but people that have their entire face covered and have hooks and rings and stuff are mental in that they are missing a component that normally occurs early in life called attention. They weren't given any. It's either that or they were never disciplined.
I place them in the same mental classification as the "transgender" movement, being that "transgender" is physically impossible, although very mentally possible.
You don't have to be a shrink to see that the common denominator in both groups is a massive lack of attention. What happens when anybody in either group goes in public? Instant attention from literally everyone. People might not stare, but it's impossible not to look.
However, as a disclaimer, 1 of my past relationships was involved, for 4yrs, coaching HS girl cheerleaders.
Curiosity, swings both ways.
