[Letters to the Editor] Gender identity is determined mentally
I enjoyed reading Ms Mallia's perspective on Maltese law and marriage where gay or transsexual partners may be involved. The strong Catholic foundations of Maltese culture have obviously influenced both her and the law. Many learned people have struggled with the concepts of gender and Ms Mallia's concepts, though insightful, may need enlightenment.
[Letters to the Editor] The truth about transgender issues
I quote from Ms Anna Mallia's opinion piece last Sunday: "It is true that a transsexual is a person who identifies himself or herself completely with the opposite sex, believing that the wrong sex was assigned at birth. It is also true that transsexuals think and feel emotionally in a way typically considered appropriate to members of the opposite sex, and may undergo surgery to modify external sexual characteristics. But it is also true that a transsexual did not go through menstruation, does not have reproductive organs, and as such cannot fall under the definition of 'woman'. "
And what exactly is the definition of "woman"?

A Boy Named Sue
14-year city manager Steve Stanton, 48, has decided he needs to be a woman. After what must have been play-acting through marriage and fathering a son, Stanton's manhood, he has concluded, just isn't right. He wants to be a boy named Sue instead.
