The views on transgenderism vary. The crux of the divide centers on the protection of vulnerable people from what I've seen. The side that promotes transgenderism sees it as a natural gender identity and wants greater acceptance of it in order to lessen harm and promote equality, citing hate crimes and suicide rates.
The side that opposes transgenderism believes that it is a mental illness that kids will often grow out of, does harm to the ones undergoing sex change, and an attempt to subvert traditional gender even as they promote gender stereotypes (e.g. tomboys are transgender).
Both want to protect people who are vulnerable, but they disagree on what is harmful.
What are your opinions of the issue? How would you address the concerns of people who want to live as transgenders and fear hate crimes as they undergo very real depression versus those who fear the impact of transgenderism on children, particularly if the state is involved when, say, a child claims to be the opposite biological gender at school?
