There is a biological basis as to why people like me exist. We’re not just waking up and “deciding” to be transgender. It doesn’t work like that. We are literally born like this. You can observe that by looking at our genes, our brains under a fractional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and countless other characteristics that reinforce this is an inherent characteristic. Transgender people exist everywhere, because nature has determined that we will. And they deserve love, kindness, and compassion – just like anyone else.
