    Pelas próprias palavras da pessoa em causa, ela "sofria de uma doença" chamada transtorno de identidade de género que se encontra classificada no rol das doenças mentais. A citada acrescenta que se encontra tratada (que eu presumo ter a interpretação de curada). Logo já não sofre da tal doença. Entendido? Trata-se muito simplesmente de dizer precisamente o mesmo que ela diz por outras palavras que demonstram o preconceito escondido.
