Non-Transitioning: Another Option.

Most people have heard of sex changes- usually in jokes at the expense of those who seek them. There are a lot of misconceptions and misunderstandings about transgender people, or people whose identity does not match their birth sex, as well as the options they have. For people who feel they may be transgendered, there is no lack of information on how to medically and surgically transition.

What there is a lack of, is information for people who don't want to change their bodies for whatever reason.

I'm going to preface this by saying that I fully support transition. Transition is a valid option for people who experience severe dysphoria, many of these people need to transition.

What I don't support is the pressure the law, society, and even the transgender community puts on people to get expensive medical treatment they may not want. It's extremely hard for non-transitioners (or non-ops) to find support or resources for the unique problems facing them, and I'm hoping to fix that.

This is only talking about medical transition. Socially transitioning can still be an option for people who don't want to make any medical changes.
