Based on what? They could as easily say that those who believe in a God without proof are not of sound mind. Both are possible, but without proof they are just opinion.

People who want to change their gender don't seem to have a sound mind in the first place...

you don't agree with my last point. as long as they are an adult of sound mind they have the right to do what they want with their body. that would seem to make it ethical.

I agree with historybuff. Hormonal changes in nature are unnatural. everyone is naturally born man or woman, so changing a gender is not natural. There is a wide variety of health problems associated with gender changes, ones that can effect you digestive, circulatory, and respiratory health. Inducing improper amounts of chemicals in your body causes it's components to become confused and not function optimally. Sex changes are unethical due to the fact that it show no regard for your natural state, no regard for God (if you believe in one) and an effort to avoid and complicate society.

by definition it is unnatural. humans do not change gender naturally.

I'm not an expert, but I think there are health problems associated with it. hormone problems etc.

as for unethical that depends on your point of view I guess. as long as they are an adult of sound mind, they have the right to do with their body as they see fit.

how is it unnatural? it's their nature to want to have a sex change. It's not unethical because it doesn't effect others at all, and whether or not it's healthy doesn't matter at all.

not all three

Unnatural, sure. But anyone has the right to their own autonomy. A person giving consent should be allowed body modifications. Many people have piercings and tattoos. This may be more intense but is it not essentially the same principle? Following your logic, those body modifications would also be unethical.

Also, to use the term unhealthy, you should first describe what healthy means. How is it unhealthy? If someone is not chronically ill, can you honestly say that they are unhealthy?
