There is no known "cure" for any of the people I refer to in the book, no matter what group I have placed them in, because there is no disease involved. The gender variant condition is a permanent state of existence. Individuals born gender variant, die gender variant. The only way to relieve the anxiety that a gender variant individual may be experiencing, is to accept their reality and make an adjustment to it. That can range from a simple acknowledgment to complete gender role transition. Fortunately we have the psychological know how, along with the hormonal and medical technology to help these individuals live full and productive lives.
