This is a tiny 144pp new book by Helen Joyce; here is a bit from her Introduction:

"This is a book about an idea, one that seems simple but has far-reaching consequences. The idea is that people should count as men or women according to how they feel and what they declare, instead of their biology. It’s called gender self-identification, and it is the central tenet of a fast-developing belief system which sees everyone as possessing a gender identity that may or may not match the body in which it is housed. When there is a mismatch, the person is ‘transgender’ – trans for short and it is the identity, not the body, that should determine how everyone else sees and treats them."

It's not a "fast-developing belief system." It is, always has been, and always will be a "mental illness."

So if i am a transbillionaire, then everyone must treat me as a billionaire, right?

No, she means the social & political support for the mental illness.

More from Joyce's Introduction:

In no society – anywhere, ever – have people been oblivious to the sex of those around them, and certainly not in situations involving nakedness or physical contact. And in all societies – everywhere,
always – the overwhelming majority of violence, sexual assault and harassment suffered by female people has been perpetrated by male ones. Single-sex spaces exist for these reasons, not to prop up privilege or pander to prejudice. And it is logically impossible to admit people of one sex to spaces intended for the other while keeping them single-sex. All this is so obvious that it is remarkable to have to say it – and until a few years ago, when gender self-identification started to catch on, there would have been no need.

Yep. IMO, it doesn't give anyone license to be hurtful or to be intentionally harmful to them but neither does it require us to accept their situation as normal.

The current medical thinking holds as gospel truth that one-in-five (20%) of the population suffers from varying degrees of mental illness.

20% is a very large political base and a prize ripe for the plucking for the party who wins them.

I keep seeing that little boy dancing at the head of a NY-city homosexual pride parade, dressed up provocatively as a whore, all of 8 or 9 years of age. Later, as an 11 year old, the mentally ill youngster was taken by his beaming parents(mother & father)to a homosexual bar in NY-city, again dressed provocatively as a whore and not wearing anything else but a sleazy dress, flaunting more skin than dress mind you.

The adult homosexuals cheered, and shouted obscene encouragement to the 11 year old boy as he pranced about a stage, mimicking sexual positions, and poses, while adult homosexual men literally would grab the boy's clothing, pulling it away so they could stuff cash between the boys skin and his scant garments, all the while the youngsters parents beamed proudly at their son as he pranced about in an open sexually provocative display for the packed house!

You can easily find this episode online, posted by the ill boy's proud mama & papa.....

Transgenderism is make-believe. It is adults given political permission to mutilate each other and helpless children. Transgenderism, in practice, is Satanic Ritual. It is anti-human life in the extreme. Proselytizers of transgender ideology ought to be burnt at the nearest stake.

Well, Joan D'Arc was burned for (among other things) being a transvestite...

Transgenderism is as real as it is exceedingly rare.
At LEAST 95% of so called trans people are not trans at all.
Most are effeminate gay men, they like to dress as women, but like their penis and have no intention of giving it up - THIS... is not trans.
Another group is CDs (cross dressers) They are sexually charged by dressing like women. THIS - is not trans.
And then finally... the smallest number within these "claimed" females... are actual transgenders.
maybe as little as 1 in 100 of claimed transgenders

Wonder if the "medical thinkers" were included in the 20% ?
