There is a heck of a lot more to it than that!!! It's a whole new way of thinking and a lot of adapting!! First you have to put up with a lot of people who may shun you, hate you or simply just disagree with you!! You have to behave like a woman and just be yourself by leaving behind many man traits you have had in the past. You have emotional change and you have to be strong to face all the adversity that women have to go through each and every day! It's not about having surgery to fix the parts from male to female.
You have to be able to hold back anger and be able to inspire or lead! Hobbies and Interests may change! There are changes with patience, goals and/or determination! You may even be gay or lesbian like in my case...have always been attracted to women but I also felt that I needed to be female myself.
Transition doesn't happen overnight, it's not magic! You may or may not have support from friends or family...job(s) may be affected. There is a name and pronoun adjustment from people around you not just yourself.
Being Transgendered is more than being 'brave' it's about being 'strong' you have to face all these adversities I've listed above and more that I may not even have thought of. You may have to change your social and local gatherings! And you may even have to put up with public lifestyle because you aren't afraid of who you are and this may even happen even more where you are contstantly in the limelight like Chaz Bono depending on how far you are open with it.
Plus there is every other affliction or problem you may have in your life..could be anything from Psoriasis to ADD!!
Let's take a random 100 people out there and see if any of those people could possibly go through what Transgendered go through! Most wouldn't last a week let alone a day or two!! It's getting easier these days to be able to be Transgendered but it's still not a picnic..there is still a long ways to go!! Because people are still committing suicide because they feel they don't belong or are in the right body which includes family and friends shunning them!!
