As the evidence grows and grows that being transsexual is a true medical condition and not a “sinful lifestyle choice” that the bigots and haters like to claim, I try to document some of that here, as references.
A new study, from Taipei in Taiwan, adds further weight to the discussion about the biological differences between trans folk and other people.
For those who are interested in these things, I also highly recommend the A.E. Brain blog, an excellent reference point for many, many more studies that further document our medical condition.
When people make claims to the contrary, you can use the peer reviewed, scientific medical studies available to present your position that being trans is a recognized medical condition, and that for many of us, transitioning to live as the gender we identify as is the most successful therapy available.
