Nor should George, who identifies as male, not be allowed to grow his hair long, put on a dress and makeup, and carry a purse if he so desires. The point being made here, if Iím understanding correctly, is that there is a difference between doing things more common to the opposite gender, and actually identifying as the opposite gender. George in a dress is still George in a dress, and thatís OK if thatís what he wants, but Gloria in a dress wants to be a woman through and through. Do I have it?
Yes I think you got it. Some men wear make up and dress feminine but they absolutely donít think they are women or have a desire to become one. Being transgendered is very different .

As about what people are allowed to do. Maybe you live in a very conservative area but in my experience none of those things are prohibited. Women work in construction and men wear long hair. And all that other stuff
