Different factors come into play when deciding whether or not to undergo a medical transition. One would be that an individual simply does not wish to go through all available procedures. Another would be the financial cost required to support this choice. Male to female transition surgery can be expensive.
Whether or not a transgender person goes through surgery, what truly matters is that everyone’s gender identity, and how they choose to transition to it, should be respected.
Transitioning is the process of how a transgender person can change to the gender they identify with internally. The two types of transitioning, social and medical, can both be used by transgenders to affirm their identity.
Social transitioning involves acceptance by others as being a part of the gender one identifies as. Medical transitioning, on the other hand, involves surgeries and hormonal treatments to change physically.
Though not every transgender person goes through medical transitioning, their gender identity deserves the same level of respect as everyone else.
