I don’t know why we need to bring slurs into this, but, from an evolutionary perspective, being trans (and getting surgery for it, rendering oneself unable to reproduce) would cause it to be self-limiting and therefore not something to worry about in the long term. 

It’s simply a fact of life.

I, myself, find myself somewhere “stuck in the middle”. Not trans enough for surgery to do any good, not cis enough to be comfortable. What is there to do for it?

But from a social standpoint it is a form of behavioral disability, and thus not desirable. A point of view that values the survival and success of a society is necessarily strongly heteronormative because heterosexual couples as much better at creating stable, efficient and successful families, where success is measures in the number and quality of their offspring. Evolutionary fitness of trannies is severely impaired, especially in the modern world that offers gonad-removal services. In this context the biological traits that differentiate actual trans-sexuals from normal people are properly seen as derangements rather than neutral or beneficial traits. The same pertains to the memes and ideologies that create would-be trans-sexuals out of mildly disturbed individuals
