I’m very much of the mind that I want to mind my own business and be left alone.

I might be interested in the human behavior aspects, but I only really feel the need to get involved if it effects me, or harms others.

So gender affirming care is tricky. Do I let them at it and just mind my own business? Or do they need to be protected from themselves bc they’re sick? I don’t know. Especially since the APA changed it’s mind about people absolutely obsessing over gender and mutilating themselves being a disorder in the DSM-5.

But the arguments from the transgender community themselves seem to be giving me most of my reasons to vote against it.

Are transwomen women? Yes. Apparently, there’s no difference between men and women.

Is it fair for transwomen to play against biological women in sports? Yes. Apparently, puberty blockers make absolutely no difference as long as the transwoman has been taking hormones for a few months prior to playing.

Do minors need gender affirming care, like puberty blockers and surgery? Yes. Bc men and women are so different, and puberty blockers will make all the difference in the world so they can appear more biological women like when they’re older.

So which is it? The same people argue the same contradictions. The claims change based on when it suits them.

So which are we supposed to believe? It can’t be all three at the same time.

These same people are trying to cancel biology being taught in schools… How can that be of sound mind?

For adults in the USA we legally permit a lot of surgical body modification which can also be harmful. There was a guy who had tusks implanted, along with horns, split tongue & tattooed his entire body so he could look like an "orc"- a fictional being. And some surgeon did it. As long as extremes like that sort of surgery is legal, it would be hard to ban trans surgery. For adults. Maybe, hopefully, hold the line to prevent it for minors. Meanwhile, people who need dental surgery or care, or hearing aids, which do effect health, often can't get it paid for as it's considered elective.
