No it doesn't.
It's a disputed issue, that effects less than 1% of the UK population.
Just because someone disagrees with it, doesn't mean they are wrong. Christ, pantomimes are now considered offensive for god sake. When will you liberals wake up and start living in the real world.
I couldn't care less if someone does whatever they like to themselves. What I disagree with is he normalisation of it, or involving children into it.
But there is only 2 biological genders. Gender is not a social construct. Transgender is a social construct.
Amphibians evolved the ability in certain groups to change sex in a same sex environment to ensure continuation of the gene pool.
Humans did not evolve this trait. Humans evolved for a male and a female to mate and continue the gene pool.
If humans had evolved as amphibians with the ability to change sex, then you could argue that gender is a social construct. But it's not.
Transgender is still disputed in the medical world, there's still a lot of research to be done. There is an increasing number of transgenders who have transitioned, who transition back and are disputing that transgender is a medical condition at all, rather than a pyscological one.
Just because a topic is found sensitive by a small number of people, doesn't mean we can't talk, ask questions or debate about it. Want people to understand? Give them the ability to talk, question and debate. People can not and will not agree on everything. Nor will ramming it down people's throats and calling people bigots or whatever. That's why brexit won, that's why trump win, that's why politics in Europe is taking a huge boost in popularity to right wing groups.
Normal ordinary people who were in the centre aren't getting listened to, are fed up of being told what to think, what to say or what's offensive. That's why the regressive left has taken a huge blow this year.
To the original poster, I couldn't care if you identify as the opposite sex, or an attack helicopter. I care if you are a good instructor, role model and person. That's what matters.
