Beschreibung:

This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: One of the most incomprehensible aspects of human behaviour is changing sex. Who in their right mind would want to go through all that? What man would want to have their penis removed or woman have no breasts? Most who have had such operations have suffered severe trauma from the event, but for transsexuals it is a matter of release from imprisonment in a body that seems totally alien. Some men might venture out dressed as a female as a bit of a dare, a jolly jape, secure in the knowledge that they are men. Some act as women without actually wanting to be female or are transvestites, getting a thrill from cross dressing. Transsexuals usually know from a young age, in my case about three years old, that they do not want to be their natal sex and this disappointment gradually turns into severe depression. Everything about the sexes is different, relationships; the day to day basics of people relating to each other; the way men and women naturally seek out companionship of people of the same sex; clothes, interests and attitudes. I attempt to explain the syndrome with the latest scientific research while giving an account of my broken life. It is not an account of self pity, but a tale of triumph over adversity. People are hurt along the way, but that is no different to thousands of failed marriages with much less excuse. I make no apology. I have led my life to the best of my ability.

Über den Autor: I was born in 1939. By 1942 I new I was unhappy. I did not know what a girl was except that I wanted to be one. I already hated my penis. By age twelve I felt completely out of my depth in a boys' boarding school, harbouring this awful secret. Then came the revelation of Roberta Cowell changing her sex. I spoke about it to mother, but was to afraid to say that was what I wanted. At age eighteen after school, I actively tried to become a woman, but medical attitudes then did not support such action. I went to Africa, Sierra Leone, the white man's grave, where I was a bank manager at age 21. In that male atmosphere, I struggled to conform. I was ill physically but managed to perform my tasks. After five years I returned to the UK and tried to make a go of life. I married a girl who was my opposite and who I found out, married me to get away from her mother. We had two children and although I loved my family life, my basic sexual unhappiness made life a struggle. Nevertheless, I worked and worked hard and successfully. I tried at first to be the man I was supposed to be and then my old instincts returned worse than ever. I made further abortive attempts to change. At last my wife's frustration and changes in medical/psychiatric attitudes coincided. I escaped my Bible thumping GP and found salvation with Dr Randal who had attempted curing transsexuals with electric shock aversion therapy. He had found that did not work and had finally decided that what could not be cured must be accommodated. I am now retired. I paint, I write and ski and walk. I ride a motorbike occasionally and I quite like danger. I keep taking the drugs that help make me female. There are regrets, of course but I am lucky to be still here, mainly due to being blest with an inner strength.
