    I suspect in most instances it's not about a guy "wanting" to be a girl but rather the guy {already feels he is a girl} trapped in a guy's body!
    His goal is to match his physical self with his mental/emotional self.

    I don't know...why would a girl want to be a guy?

    Putting aside the fact that transgender people don't just "choose" to change their gender, what's really being implied here is that being a female is somehow seen as inferior to being male, so you can't imagine in any world that someone would choose being female, right? That's some pretty heavy sexism.

      They don't choose their mental illness, but society has now chosen to cater to it, as if massive doses of hormones and surgery prove the feminist point there's no difference between men and women.

    Dysphoria is when someone's mental image is warped. Anorexics have a warped mental image that says a starving body is fat. Transgenders have a warped mental image that they should be the opposite sex.

    human sexuality is not the either / or   like your question is.

    1) the 'Guevedoce' boys of the Dominican Republic, Guevedoces are also sometimes called “machihembras” meaning “first a woman, then a man”. When they’re born they look like girls with no testes and what appears to be a vagina. It is only when they near puberty that the penis grows and testicles descend.

    2) embryo has both male and female primordial ducts. The brain masculinize or remains feminine (controls mounting behaviour) before the genital  differentiate. Testicular testosterone produced during a critical perinatal period is thought to masculinize and defeminize the male brain from the inherent feminization program and induce male-typical behaviors in the adult.
