That's kind of my point: why does it matter what sex I see a person as? I can be easily fooled without subjecting your body to surgical mutilation and hormone levels your body isn`t supposed to produce -- don`t go through all that on *my* account.
Likewise, if gender is the way you feel about *yourself* (as I`m often told it is), then your outward appearance should be fine the way it is (or was, in the above example) and no amount of surgery or hormone treatments could possibly do anyone any good.
What`s left are the clinically depressed acting out through radical self-abuse, and other-genitalia-experience fetishists. If that`s the case I suggest therapy and possibly medication rather than radical unnecessary surgery.
And yes, I feel the same way about face-lifts, boob jobs, and tummy-tucks, too.
