What peer-reviewed scientific data can be shown to prove the theories of a "man in a woman's body or woman trapped in a man's body"?

Umm, hi. Flaming liberal woman here. I know for a fact I've shared a restroom with a transgender woman who had not had her surgery yet. Didn't matter to me a bit. We both peed, washed our hands, checked our makeup, and walked out.
OK - so what? Anyone can cite a single instance of no-issue. Just because you accept someone's choice play dress up doesn't make it able to be supported by facts.
I tend to be more liberal than conservative, and I don't think science or psychiatry will prove it. Parapsychology, maybe. In parapsychology we have an answer, but as I said, it's more taken on faith than facts.
Brad, although you have some valid points, you are confusing transgender with transvestite. A true transgender has had the sex change physically. A transvestite just cross dresses. They aren't, or shouldn't be, welcome in the opposite bathrooms
Without scientific proof Transvestites and Transgender are the same, a preference. I think the rest of my points were consistent with this one. Without a litmus test, people will scam us, and in turn, it will hurt the ones that truly need to be recog
Even if someone gets an operation to change their anatomy, it doesn't make them magically become a different sex.
Maybe I can't include myself in a discussion of this nature. I have my own thoughts & questions. I'm sure they're not PC. eg, the photo? I want 2 know: What goes on in their minds? What do they C when they look in the mirror? I SEE huge problems.
I'm in no way in need of education on the subject Paula - it's a mental disorder. What I am interested in is understanding how the leftist mind "proves" a scientific connection.
RJ..So sorry, my misunderstanding! In that case, I'm rather clueless. I'm unaware lefties claim "a scientific connection" 4 transgenderism. (unlike homosexuality) It all confuses me. IMO, they fabricate & grasp at straws. I'm no Scientist!
As a lay-person w/ a good brain, I believe there's no way the left (or any1) can change what IS to what is NOT. I don't even grasp how 1 "feels" they R a gender that they were not born. Sorry I even tried to ans. This totally confounds me, RJ.
