Our primary interest is to educate transgendered people, their families, and the general public on the research showing a linkage between altered sexual development and exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals in both animals and humans. We believe that this information will aid in dispelling common myths about transgendered people and should lead towards restoration of full civil rights and improved social perceptions. We are advocating elimination of all endocrine disrupting chemicals from manufacture and from the environment, because the effects are cumulative and will have severe reproductive consequences for future generations.
Our second interest is to present arguments for removal of all transgendered conditions from the DSM-IV, as our research indicates that transgenderism is not a mental illness, nor a lifestyle choice, but a physical phenomenon typically caused by external agents. We believe that we have the right to be different, and that this difference is not equal to a pathology.
