What could possibly posses a person to become transgender? Being gay is one thing. Going to the extreme to become the opposite sex is another.
Not About "Becoming": It's about "being." not even one of the many gender diverse kids/teens/adults i know/have known would say they "became transgender." in fact, they'd all say they were born w/ a gender identity that didn't match the gender they were assigned at birth - when they were introduced 2 the world w/ an "it's a boy!" or an "it's a girl!" some did & some didn't understand the mismatch at young age. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

When transgendered people start dating people of the opposite sex, does that make the person of the opposite sex gay if they didn't know of the change?
I hope I am: Understanding this correctly. In a situation in which the person is unaware of other individual's actual gender - the person is not making a conscious choice to date someone of that actual gender.
