The Response to Gender Dysphoria

A gender dysphoric person will experience pain. That pain is not caused by or the fault of society. It is caused by the unfortunate plight which their being different from the biological and statistical norm places them in. Punishing society for being the norm is to address something other than their problem and is, literally, beside the point. We should be looking at the dysphoric, not at how society conducts itself nor at how the whole of society can be re-adjusted around them. Society should be left to continue to conduct itself as it always has in terms of gender norms because they are - the norms. Pretending the norms are not the norms helps neither the dysphoric nor the norm-al.
