La transexualidad ya no es enfermedad en Suecia pero sigue siéndolo en España
La Federación Estatal de Lesbianas, Gais, Transexuales y Bisexuales, FELGTB, celebra el paso que ha dado Suecia en el reconocimiento de la dignidad de las personas transexuales. La Junta Nacional de Salud y Bienestar sueca ha dejado de considerar como trastorno la transexualidad en el listado de enfermedades con el que trabaja. Se trata de un avance y una presión más a la Organización Mundial de la Salud para que despatologice al fin la transexualidad, como ya hiciera con la homosexualidad en 1989.

Who Am I?
There has been an explosion of debate recently about what it means to be transgender. It's making me think about who I am.
Reminiscent of Dickens' "best of times, worst of times" passage from Tale of Two Cities, we are "the most courageous people on earth," and we are "fetishistic predators." We are "an integral part" of the LGBT community, and we are "holding back gay rights." We are "men trapped in women's bodies" or "women trapped in men's bodies," and we are also "guilt-ridden gays" or "auto-erotic transvestites." We are "cured" by sex reassignment surgery with a 98% satisfaction rate, or we are made worse by it, with a 20% rate of regretters and de-transitioners. We are the vanguard of freedom from gender restrictions, or the worst defenders of outmoded gender stereotypes.
