Kokkuvõte: In this paper I will address the problem of gender identity. As humans we like to believe that within ourselves is a selfness, a soul, or some fundamental me-ness, that ultimately defines us. My body and soul are two different things, where the first is only a shell that covers my soul, the one thing that really makes me me. We are called to act ‘like ourselves’ and free ourselves from any social manipulation, which usually is expressed through individual belief system or some less essential things, like a way of dressing. It is important to note that this soul or me-ness is considered natural, and thus there is only one natural and right way for a person to be and act. /../
