What it means to be transgender

It’s a physiological birth defect. My brain and my body received inconsistent blueprints, which left the brain in chronic distress over the mismatch. A mental illness would suggest there was a “healthy state” prior to being “ill”.

I came accross this quote today which was in response to an assertion that transgender equals mental illness. The writer gives a clear explanation which hopefully makes sense to those who find it difficult to understand.

Alice through the looking glass was my favourite book as a child. Today I was thinking about the phenomenon of sometimes the more you love someone the the further away they seem to get…..always just out of your grasp. It brought this chapter of the book to mind.
