You can’t identify AS something. You either ARE that thing or you AREN’T.
You can’t change the definition of that thing to suit yourself.
You can’t change the definition of Lizard to “scaled creature with a pair of arms and a pair of legs”, and then tattoo scales on yourself and say you’re a Lizard. You’re a fucking human being.
Just as you cannot change your species, you cannot change your sex. You’re cosmetic surgery-ing yourself to look like something you’re not, you might even be convinced, and be so earnest as to convince others that you feel like something you’re not, even though logic says you cannot know how it feels to be something you’re not, but baby, you ain’t that thing when the chips are down.
You can fool some of the people some of the time…
