It's not a "choice", but rather it's the person realizing why they feel so odd, different, etc and coming to terms with that.
The only choice is letting people know this, or keep it to themselves. Ideally it should not matter and should not be a big deal, but again, too many people make it their business, make it a big deal, that it has become a 'thing'. After all, if you're not male or female, to the population at large and a good ignorant part of it, you get idiots that throw around the "I want to be a toaster" to make fun of something that's pretty damn serious.
