Typically, persons who identify as transgender are those whose gender identification varies from their sexual orientation. Sexual orientation is the general categorization of a baby as a boy or a girl by taking to account their reproductive organs which are evident at birth. Along the line as body changes occur, some babies tend to manifest features of the opposite sex to the one that they are identified with. This often leads to a biologically oriented transgender where the person becomes stuck at being both a female and a male in a single body.
A medical solution to this challenge has been for most people opting for sex changes where they get to embrace the gender identity which best fits them. A challenge from most studies conducted over the years is that most transgender persons never really feel too masculine or exclusively feminine. This brings about a tug of war which results from overlapping genes which are traceable to the period of fetal development which they have no control over. The truth is sexual determination, and gender orientation is much more complicated than the presence of certain reproductive parts at the point of birth.
Sexual change is for many people the perfect chance to embrace their true nature by looking for an option to alter some biological aspects. While in the past this was associated with mental disorders, the World Health Organization alongside many other researchers and organizations are disapproving the classification. Science has been their backing as hormones and brain development shows that transgender people are more aligned to the sex of their choice rather than the one given at birth. The result is an individual who lives in a bubble until they cannot take it anymore and decide to take a path less traveled in the pursuit of their destiny.
