    Corrections and explanations to your grammar and word usage errors.

    (1) People who have discovered their gender identity, (which is) different from their biological sex, can just conceal their real sexual preference, (in order) to prevent themselves from being regarded as weirdoes (by others).

    “who have identified with their sexual orientation” is a restrictive clause used to modify people. The clause is restrictive because it is essential information. Meaning the people who have identified with their sexual orientation, not any other people

    “which is different from their biological sex” is a nonrestrictive clause and you can delete this clause without impacting the meaning of the sentence. “which is” can be omitted

    (in order) to prevent themselves from being regarded as weirdoes (by others). 不定詞片語, passive voice

    See link below for more details on 不定詞片語: http://www.chompchomp.com/terms/infinitivephrase.h...

    Grammar error:

    People can just conceal their real sexual preference from being regarded as weirdoes.

    => If you write like this, weirdoes will be used to modify “their real sexual preference”.

    For example:

    She can just shut the door from being called weirdoes.

    She can just shut the door to prevent herself from being called weirdoes.

    See the difference?

    (2) People who have identified with their sexual orientation, (being) different from their biological sex, can just conceal their real gender identity, to prevent themselves from being regarded as weirdoes.

    Being 分詞構句修飾 sexual orientation. “being” can be omitted.

    (3) People who have identified with their sexual orientation, which differs from their biological sex, can just conceal their real gender identity, to prevent themselves from being regarded as weirdoes

    “which differs from their biological sex” is a nonrestrictive clause.

    Differing 分詞構句,現在分詞,修飾 gender identity

    By the way, sexual identity is not a wrong word but I feel sexual orientation or gender identity better describes what you wanted to state here.

    Also what I stated as grammar error was a sentence that will confuse the readers.

    People who have identified their sexual gender differed from their physiological bodies can just conceal their real sexual identity from being regarded as weirdo.

    翻譯

    已經確認性慾性別(即心理性別)不同於生理性別的人

    仍然能以隱瞞其真正的性別認同 以避免被認為是怪物

    改錯字

    genre 風俗畫,世態畫 在此處上下文不合 應是誤植

    改成 gender 性別 比較合乎上下文的需要

    文法解析

    People (who have identified their sexual gender which differed from their physiological bodies) can just conceal their real sexual identity from being regarded as weirdo.

    1.()內 是people的補語 補充說明people

    2.which 指的是 sexual gender 原文省略which

    這一段也可以寫成

    People who have identified their sexual gender

    difference from their physiological bodies....

    這樣的表達更清楚

    3.整句的主詞是people 動詞是conceal

    受詞是 their real sexual identity

    4.from being regarded as 避免被認為是....

    版大 我覺得您的程度已經很好了

    如果不是剛好看到有錯字
