The point is that purely psychological therapies do not work. Your idea isn't a new one, and many, many years (and lives) were wasted on "let's make them be not-crazy!", to nil effect. Gender is an intrinsic part of you, and cannot be changed; see: David Reimer, quite possibly the only 'study' that will ever be done to that effect.

If it was possible to tinker with the brain and if that lead to there being a way to 'fix' transsexuals through a magic pill (or more realistically, some sort of surgery), it might be a valid (if offensive, suggesting that we need to be fixed) topic for discussion. However, there's currently none of the above.
