Why is the discussion of a person’s genitals is completely off-limits except when they’re a transgender person, and then it’s their first question and the issue of how they want to define that person?

Since when does our genitals define not our sex but our gender? When does it define our mind, our personality, our character, our temperament, our soul, our spirit, ourself?

Our gender is pretty much set by the time we’re 6 and everything after that either affirms, confuses or contradicts it, whether it from our parents, our family, our friends, our classmates, whomever. We know who we are and our body is just part of it whethere we like it or not.

So why are people so interested in the genitals of a transgender person and more so a transgender child? Kinda’ disgusting don’t you think?
