Exploring Transsexualism by Colette Chiland Book PDF Summary

Is psychotherapeutic treatment powerless in the case of transsexualism? This intriguing volume by a French psychoanalyst with extensive experience of working with transsexuals is a useful addition to the debate on transsexualism and the definitions of sex and gender. Transsexuals feel that the opposite sex to their biological sex is their true identity - their true body and self. The idea of "hormonal and surgical sex reassignment" appeals to them; it would biologically put right what they already know to be right and true in their minds. The author discusses the problems of "reassigning" one s sex and argues that surgery alone cannot fix the situation.
