  1. It is true that you can’t really transition from male to female or vice versa, because hello – a trans woman/man is different from a biologically born woman/man: this is a biological and social fact. We shouldn’t say it’s possible to change sex – rather, we are not constrained to our sex characteristics. We alter the appearance and expression of our gender, to appear more male or female, but this is and will always be different to becoming a naturalised male/female – obviously. The body of a trans man/woman behaves differently to the body of a non-trans man/woman. Socially a trans man/woman is treated, understood, accepted and identified or catagorised in a way that is different from non-trans women/men. These are facts for goodness sakes! We may never develop the technologies required to turn one sex into another: probably it will always be impossible. However, we can develop what is surely the best practice in all cases of gender identity issues: accept what you are first, and then, once you have accepted what you are, you may decide to transition. But do it on the basis of acceptance. Don’t do it on the basis of denial, or delusion, saying “even as a kid I knew I was a man”. This is nonsense. Let’s love and support all people regardless of their gender or the expression of it, but let’s not stray from the facts; let’s not confuse this debate with so much delusional and wishful and ideologically motivated thinking.

  2. Gender & sex are the same thing. These people suffered trauma that effected their sense of identity and were exploited by the medical profession. This documentary is very important as it allows the three men tell their own stories. You can’t turn a man into a women or visa versa, its all cosmetic, and it is to cover up the real causes for their trauma.

  3. stupid uneducated activist cant even understand the difference between gender and sex, yet he is highly biased against something he doesn’t know.
