What I'm trying to say is that if a man has an operation to become a woman then that guy is not necessarily a woman, I mean he'll never be able to produce children or have a menstrual cycle. The pituitary gland will still produce the sex hormones he was born with, yes he can take estrogen pills to counter act that but he will continue to have to take those for the rest of his life. It sounds like people want to change science, the only way you could do that is during pregnancy before week 12 (before genital detection).

I do have a question. If a 50 year old man decides to have a sex change operation and wants to be identified as a 6 year old girl, would you identify him as a little girl?

everything about your body is biology, so yes, one change and your biology is changed, was there a better point you were trying to make?

Dave is right. I study biology and you would definitely be changing their physical biology. and their hormones which would further change your physical biology. so your chromosomes would still be either XX or XY , but your appearance would be different.

Anatomy is part of biology. If you are changing anatomical features, which is exactly what a sex change is, you are changing their biology. Also, the hormones associated with sex changes would change brain and physical biological functions (breast growth for example).

No it doesn't change their biology. Give me a few examples on how it would change their biology

It doesn't change their genetics, but it does change their biology.
