Changing gender for acceptance in the society

“Iwillbegirl” was the IRC nickname of a guy compelled to turn himself into a girl through medical procedures for getting accepted in the society as a normal couple. Why would he want to do so? The answer is, he is gay and according to him it’s easier to change his gender than to alter his feelings towards men. A 30 year old man with whom I started chatting accidentally turned out to be listening to a person who wants acceptance in the society and is willing to go to lengths. According to him gender transformation doesn’t hurt physically but it does put a lot of mental pressure. He wants to find a gay or straight man who can accept him as a girl and can have a straight relationship afterwards. I was surprised to know that with all of these pride parades and legalizing of gay marriages there are still few gay people who want to change themselves in some fashion to be accepted as normal. I am not going to talk about for or against gay relationships and I am putting my words from purely non religious point of view. In my opinion definition of normality is indeed something that exists in majority and probably that doesn’t impair you from carrying out your life. We call ADHD a disorder because it impairs a person to concentrate effectively and is also not found among the majority of population. But we do not consider homosexuality as a disorder rather an orientation though homosexual population is a minuscule as compared to the total number of human population and it does impair you from a very fundamental role of living beings is to reproduce. People can argue that a gay female can have sex with a guy or can do IVF just to get a baby or gay men can adopt children to start a family, but these methods are purely in vitro and it can only give a synthetically constructed family structure. Chatting with this gay man I got this impression that even they are proud of who they are, there is still a sense of normality that they are worried about. Right now its purely on the basis of society structure but in future it might come up naturally.
