You assumed correctly. But I can recognize it when I see it. I can also see the signs of medical conditions as well. Deal with enough of it and you start seeing the signs.
Thanks from Hattie Nuff

This is about it for you. You have nothing to offer but partisan insults. Pitiful.

Oh, you're an RN or a nurse practitioner, perhaps a last year medical student?
"medical conditions" in general or specifically mental/emotional illnesses?

in terms of the person themselves, they are not 'sick people'. they are human beings and should be regarded as no less than that and no more than that.
Just a thought: might it not be simpler, less dangerous and traumatic, and more likely to avoid the mental anguish of the grave social stigma, to reprogram the brain with appropriate chemical treatment and therapy?

this seems a reasonable approach. there are two issues.

firstly, our understanding of the functioning of the human brain is just not good enough to actually achieve this. we know the basics of how the brain works, but there are about 100 billion brain cells each of which connects to about 10 thousand other brain cells. whether you think of yourself as male or female depends on the details of exactly which brain cells are saying what to which other brain cells. we dont know enough about the details to make changes of that sort. compared to brains, human bodies are way simpler. its much easier, in that it is possible, to turn the gender of a body into the other gender. the end result isnt perfect but its pretty good.

the second issue is philosophical. maybe one day we will know enough about the human brain to do what you suggest. the individual (who has chest hair, facial hair, testicles and a penis) doesnt want that treatment. they are a woman and they want to be a woman. they have always felt like a girl and they want to be a girl. making them happy with being a man is changing them. gender reassignment surgery is not changing them, its correcting what they see as the problem.

i stick to the principle that a human being is defined by their brain. this is a simple principle and it keeps my ethic consistent.
