A female in the unremitting state of transition has taken a NYC health department to court because they questioned the changing of her birth certificate.
It it has been moves such as these along with identity politics from the trans community that completely disprove their reasoning (feeling comfortable in their own bodies) for transitioning! Changing names, pronouns and the little F to an M on their ID's has zero to do with the body, which they claim is where all their problems lie.
From the article: "After having sex-change surgery in (her) late 60s in 2009, Birney applied to
change (her) birth certificate. (She) enclosed a doctor's letter saying the
operation had been completed successfully".
There currently are no drugs or cosmetic surgeries that can change a persons sex and until there is name changes, pronoun changes and ID changes should not be legally altered. If you hear of a person claiming to be trans because they desperately needed to FEEL better with their bodies, then insist upon changing non body issues, you can be sure they are not truly trans and most certainly not doing anything remotely transgressive!

Edit to add:
Willa Cather would mature and go on to embrace her femalehood and re-embrace her given name Willa.
I first became aware of Cather when I was fifteen, from a tenth grade english class in which we were assigned to read her short story Paul's Case. The story dealt with a loner, lonely teenage boy whose primary happiness was derived from the symphony at Carnegie Hall where he was an usher. Being a lonely loner myself whose chief bit of happiness also derived from words and music, I was immediately drawn to and moved by Cather's story. This later lead me to be equally drawn and moved to Cather herself as well as many of her perfect novels.
It is clear from her pictures that Cather too (for a spell at least) suffered from the taut Gender Straight Jacket of her day. It is also clear that somewhere between her life and her work, she found a way to love herself in spite of that stringent straight jacket society tried saddling her with.
