Where Do Gender Reassignment People Fit in?


I was just watching a show and they had a father who got a sex change. That family was having issues with family-type things. Our society is going through an identity crisis and it is not only who we are but what we are and what we are to others and ourselves. Being that religion is trying to make all of us some kind of BORG, if a father, or mother, got a sex change would the other person be considered GAY if they stayed married and how or what would that teach our children?

    Very well said, Izetti! I'm so sorry you had to go through what you did. I can't even imagine. I agree with you on everything you have said. Your last paragraph says it all. Each of us need to think of those we will affect, not just ourselves.

    If he was already a woman in a man's body (to speak in grossly oversimplified terms), I feel that the family was already dysfunctional and that this whole situation is the fault of narrow-minded expectations of what a family should be.

    I absolutely agree with your comment. I think there is a degree of mental illness and no, I don't believe we should discriminate either.

    Like Silverspeeder said below, it has to do with mental illness. I believe it does as well with women who fail their families to such an extreme as a trans man does- a real woman not doing that and a woman who does likely has a mental illness.

    Society does not HAVE TO accept it- that takes away our freedom. Freedom is people thinking or believing how they choose- where is the freedom in saying society has to accept?
