Transgender

Kottke.org pointed out…

this article and photographs of the incredible skill and artfulness involved in one person’s transformation from a man to a woman.

I don’t know which methods were used in the creation of this particular neovagina, but surely this is art of the highest caliber. Sculpture in flesh tissue and nerve bundles.

I find gender identity disorder so fascinating because it has nothing to do with sexual orientation. I’ve also got profound sympathy for the prejudice, confusion, and self doubt they must encounter. Gender identity is probably the earliest label we affix to a child; the first question on everyone’s lips is “Is it a boy or a girl?” It’s gotta take a lot of courage to undergo a sex change surgery, hormone replacement therapy, and countless hours of counseling to reassign yourself. If you haven’t seen Transamerica, please do.

    Kudos. Some people, like you, get it. You just do. Many don’t.

    I was searching for some new websites as i stumbled over this blogpost.
    Yes, you really got the point. I am transgendered, living in Germany and i’m really really happy to find such statements. This proofs the change in the minds of the people. :)

    Fully ‘out’ on March 28th 2008. Came out at work first. Walked into the office with all arms open and accepting. 30 years of worry, so many questions I had/have. Then in one day all of my anexieties, fears and worries seemed to all but disappear. Thanks to the wonderfull staff and corporate exectives there. A company of total openmindedness and one that promotes adversity to the fullest, yet maintains a total business atmosphere. WOW I should have hit this sooner………my Ambien is beginning to hit hard….so for now I will close…(Ihope at lease some of this made sence) My story is interesting to say the least. Anyone interested in it let me know and I’ll let the book flow. Well all nighty-night…..play nice! MOMMIE SAID! :-)

    Actually, in my case, my gender variance is linked in some mysterious way to my sexual orientation. And really, if you think about it, by changing your gender, you change the sexual signals you send and receive… so it really can’t be completely decoupled from orientation.
