The Evidence

On what basis do people ignore the evidence that shows that transgender people have brain structures usually associated with the opposite sex? Weighing the evidence and disagreeing with it are different from not considering it at all. 

Studies can be overturned. Theories can be supplanted. The evidence may later turn out not to be true or not true in the way we originally thought. But as of March 2016, the evidence weighs in favor of transgender people being real.

If you refuse even to consider it, then on what basis do you ask others to consider evidence in your favor should judgment be directed at you?
