Geepers, what on earth is wrong with you?

Yes, you have a condition. It used to be known by one name, now it’s known by another.

We “political types” have done a bit of reading. Marsha & Sylvia were referred to as ‘transvestites.’ They did not qualify, back then, for the term ‘transsexual,’ because they were not medically transitioning.

This undue focus on medical process denies us an identity unless and until we are at some point of that process.

Terms evolve over time. We don’t use the term “sex-change” any more either. Things evolve.

Also, in the time we’re living, I can’t imagine being trans and NOT being a “political type.”

Please do some reading. A lot has happened in the last decades, and you seem to be stuck in a time gone by.
