Are We Mentally Disturbed?

This one falls into the "nice try" category since transgender people are as high functioning as they come and continue to hold positions in governments, the military, academia, law, engineering and many other highly challenging professions. So while it may be convenient for detractors to use this as a slur, the evidence clearly does not align with their accusation. However, they must try something lest we find a place of acceptance in society and burst their balloon. Ironically, more often than not, it is the more disturbed of detractors who offer the most virulent attacks.

If trans people suffer from anything it is the persecution of a society which refuses to accept them. This can lead to various forms of mental trauma and self-loathing which can sometimes require professional treatment to help eradicate.
