Most of Sex Change Operations Are Harmful or Disappointing - Social rejection and no sex
Some men do not feel men enough. Others love men. And some others feel like a woman. And there are women that feel like a man, too. Many of those who have been through sex change operations claim it was the only solution to a stressful condition. But others disagree.
"I should never have had sex change surgery," Claudia MacLean, a transsexual woman told the audience at a recent debate organized by the BBC Radio 4 programme Hecklers and the Royal Society of Medicine in London.
"As a result of the surgery, I am incapable of sex and I have lived a life apart."

Male-to-female transgendered people
Transgender adults are not a new theory or issues in society. The fact of sex change operations and the rights of individuals that identify with the opposite sex, however is a new battle today.

It is only recently that a term has been assigned, Gender Identity Disorder.

In other words, she has devoted her life and career to sticking it to the you know who.
But now Bodiford finds herself in the most unlikeliest of roles. As a small but strident band of activists lobbies to add legal protections for transgender people to the county ordinance, Bodiford is pulling back.

Time to give transgenders rights, not ridicule
Excerpt: Cummings, 43, has taught me a lot about gender dysphoria and transsexuals over the past year. As gender identity has come up in the headlines - a Largo city manager was fired after he announced his transition to Susan, a Los Angeles Times sportswriter I used to drink beers with at the Olympics caused a stir when he became Christine - Mark gave me a first-hand account of the desperation that led them there.
