Springfling does add a very good point there. In some parts of the world, once someone has fully transitioned, in the eyes of the law, the gender transitioned to, is considered their actual gender in legal terms. And it is also possible in some parts of the world to have the gender markers on your birth certificate changed to the opposite sex of that which was assigned at birth. Why would anyone go through all the heartache, upheaval, embaressment, and turmoil involved in that process, unless it was to be recognised completely as the gender with which they identify? Like I said earlier in this thread, expecting people in this category to "admit" to being a gender that they don't identify as being (and possibly also a gender that they are not recognised in law as being) is expecting them to participate in their own oppression.
