Transgender acceptance is now politically correct and I welcome this.
However, as I say here, its political correctness (PC) may have gone too far:-
I accept trans women see themselves as 'real' women.
I also see it okay if a woman (or anyone) wants to make a distinction between a trans woman and a lifelong female or 'real' woman.
What is not okay is to persecute the other's reality, whichever viewpoint you have.
However, I do think all this makes life far more complex or chaotic in many ways, as we have to adjust a binary society (males and females) to something else.
For example, the issue of transgender toilets - see here, here.
As much as we respect transgender people, I think we need to respect those women that do not want to share a toilet with transgender people. We also must value the safety of transgender people disallowed to use the female toilet, who are then forced to use the male toilet where they are likely to receive abuse.
Perhaps three toilet types (or four if disabled is included) are the way, with the third/fourth option being trans-friendly or gender-neutral toilets (which mirror the toilets in most homes)?
I also want to ask is there such a thing as a 'real' man or 'real' woman? Today I watched a TV show where a woman had an orgasm for the first time and she said she now felt like a 'real' woman. I suppose everyone has their own thoughts about what is a 'real' man or woman.
Finally I want to look at transgender people from the angle of Animal/Human/Angel, and with reference to Personality from a spiritual viewpoint:-
