    Should getting a sex change be legal?

    Me and 2 of my friends had a conversation about this topic.

    We all had different opinions. I thought that it should stay legal, but not necessarily encouraged. Another thought they were immoral, not a natural right, and technology shouldn't be advanced in this topic. Another thought there wasn't much wrong with it.

    What is your opinion?

    I cannot imagine why it would be illegal.

    What should it be illegal? How is anyone harmed by choosing to get a sex change?

    Does your friend think that we should stone adulterers as well?

    Of course it should be legal. It would be a completely victimless crime. However, I think that doctors should prescribe psychological counseling, both before and after the procedure.

    I can't. This is important.

    Follow-up question:

    Whether you think it should be legal or illegal, do you morally agree with sex changes?

    (maybe in a unbiased situation where sex changes are not legal or illegal)

    Morality is for the person getting one to decide, not for me.

    I don't even see a moral component to sex changes really. Its a personal choice that a person makes about their own body, and isn't anyone else's business.

    I can't see any reason why it should not be.

    Morally I just don't care. It is none of my business in the end.

    Im not sure what ones sex has to do with morals? If I am a man or a woman would my morals change?

    Religious beliefs would be an entirely different basis.
