Merriam-Webster.com definition of trans: such as to change or transfer
An unfortunate label when applied to women who suffer masculinization in the womb to various degrees.
The idea is that the person is changing from one thing to another, which could not be more incorrect.
Women who suffer from masculinization in the womb experience it to so many degrees it seems that some are very masculine looking while others are very feminine looking. These differences are purely physical in the case of women with this problem.
It used to be the case that women were misidentified and left to live their life “as is” with the physical birth defect, were raised culturally as males and then for whatever reason experienced dysphoria, profound depression related to the fact that they begin to understand that they are not what they appear to be.
In some cases it is genetic, in others it is caused by a small burst of testosterone that occurs in the womb.
For example: a female who has experienced masculinization in the womb may be misidentified at birth as a male and even live as a male for a period of time and experience gender dysphoria. The transition to living as a woman may be assisted by God and no one can judge her except God. According to God’s law and her conscience she will dress as a woman, etc. because she has come to understand her gender. Depending on where you live, not all people have the benefit of medical assistance with gender reassignment. Understanding, kindness and mercy are needed, not judgement.
The present study of SOM neurons in the human bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BSTc) provides unequivocal new data supporting the view that transsexualism may reflect a form of brain hermaphroditism such that this limbic nucleus itself is structurally sexually differentiated opposite to the transsexual’s genetic and genital sex.
A woman is a woman, not a trans anything. Being labeled as a trans female is the worst thing that can happen to a woman who has suffered in this way. It carries the idea that she was something other than a woman to begin with. So, the term transwoman should not be used. She is just a woman with a birth defect.
Modern science enables men who want to be female to be altered chemically and physically, that is a lifestyle choice and makes things difficult for women who have suffered masculinization in the womb, because they are grouped in with those who are “trans”.
In addition 1 Corinthians 6:9,10 applies to everyone.
