    We all had different opinions. I thought that it should stay legal, but not necessarily encouraged. Another thought they were immoral, not a natural right, and technology shouldn't be advanced in this topic. Another thought there wasn't much wrong with it.

    What is your opinion?
    I voted yes if someone wants to mutilate their own body why not...

    If not, wondering why we should assume that our uneducated opinion as to the best course of treatment for anyone should be given any creedence whatsoever.

    Eh, no! Drugs could do the same.
    Not necessarily.



    Psyciatric treatment and drugs could do the same!
    Not necessarily.

    Would your first suggestion of treatment for depression be to increase boob or penis size?
    If you actually read my comments, you would see that this would NEVER be my FIRST suggestion for treatment. Lots of evaluating and counseling would come first.



    How is wanting to change sex not a psyciatric disorder? These people are born as man or woman, there is nothing more to it. If they feel that is wrong, then they are insane.
    No, you are obviously uneducated on this topic. If you actually read the link to the research that I provided, you would see that the limbic system and biology may have something to do with this. The research is somewhat new, but there is the potential that this may be an abnormality that is created in birth, that sex reassignment surgery could resolve.

    (sometimes I wish I was a tiger, yet I dont demand that surgery should develop a brain moving procedure and allow it).
    Wishing you were a tiger and BELIEVING you WERE a tiger are two different things. The latter would show that you were suffering from delusions... unless you could prove that there were some biological factor that showed that you actually could be a tiger. If that were the case, I would sign off on your brain moving procedure.



    In any case, evaluation and pre treatment is not severe enough. If the procedures were far better and more then they are now, and would include drug treatment, counceling and psyciatric treatment, then perhaps I would agree that in some cases sex change could be allowed.
    Treatment and evaluation should be quite significant. The appropriate way to do it is for the person to live completely as a member of the opposite sex FOR A YEAR at least before the consideration of sex reassignment surgery is presented.

    and I mean, that should take many many years of attempted alternative treatment, and possibly forceibly being treated in a psyciatric institution.
    No, there are some pretty standard outpatient treatments for this issue. Hospitalization is not automatically called for.



    I am sure drugs and treatment could take care of it far better than sex change.
    Not necessarily. Medication and treatment is the first line of defense, only.



    Thanks.
    You're welcome.



    Its definetely not sufficient at this point. And should also include therapy and treatment(drugs and insane asylum) not just counceling and evaluation.
    More research needs to be done, but it makes sense. And therapy, medication, and evaluation is quite sufficient, unless the patient presents with something that requires hospitalization. This issue on it's own does not meet the criteria.



    Come of, yes it does create disability!!!
    Imagine ruining your sex and sexual function for the rest of your life, what could be worse?
    This does not disable someone from working or functioning in society. So, no, it does not create a disability.

    I would grade it alongside genitaliar mutilation performed in Africa, where people cut of lips and clitoris by force. Those peoples sexual lives are ruined at about the same degree.
    Notice what you said. BY FORCE. NOT VOLUNTARY. This is not comparable.
