    Ah, I see the difference!

    I suggest then that since you see no good reason to do it that you never have it done to yourself, OK?

    No sense TO YOU. Your opinion is not relevant unless you can substantiate it with some facts and information... or it is nothing but your opinion. You would also run into the problem of then making illegal all non-necessary procedures, like many plastic surgeries.

    And of course it should be legal. There is no good reason to NOT do it if someone wants it. See? I can do that too.

    I don't understand all this sex change stuff, but I agree it shouldn't be illegal to have it done.

    I wouldn't make it illegal, but there are good reasons not to do it. A significant percentage of people who undergo sex reassignment surgery regret it afterwards. This is partly because they do not receive adequate counseling beforehand. But the real reason is that, while some men want to be female, no one wants to be a trans-woman. It is not the same as being female. It is nothing but cosmetic surgery that mutilates your body into looking less male. And in a lot of cases it significantly impairs sexual function. Some people even end up trying to switch back. When a person with body dysmorphic disorder wants to chop off their own leg, we generally don't let them. But for some reason both doctors and society are afraid to say no to transsexuals.

    There's absolutely no good reason for me to get a boob job and increase my size to a EE. But it's still legal.

    There's also absolutely no good reason for me to stick my finger up my nose right now, but it's still legal.

    Additionally, just because YOU are incapable of coming up with a good reason for YOU to do it, doesn't mean that there isn't a good reason for another to do it.

    My goodness, I just had a disturbing thought. Evidently, about 90% of what I do should be illegal!

    Oops, make that 91. I just did something else.

    A sex change is no less harmful than marijuana use, gambling, prostitution, gay marriage, or driving without a seat belt. I wish this was the standard we used.

    Sounds like someone has repressed feelings and is probably trying to convince himself more than others.
