I agree with (and understand) all of that, but it is to some degree conditioned by the environment we grow up in when first encountering a dissonance of this magnitude.

I have been thinking about the arguments on here from sceptics. There are some points worth considering I think.

The argument is that children who become transgender are really just effeminate or...

That site you linked to was rather evangelical in trying to prove its case. A case the author admits he has been fighting for many years.

I am not asking you to put anyone into a box. Quite the opposite.

But you did say men are men and women are women and here was a man who could be either. So it is not always so clear cut.

And even on Sky's ITV catch up service today's episode was only available in SD when I last looked.

What was the point of making it in HD if you have to live in another country to watch it that way?
