Read in June, 2011

This in-depth look at a famous child sex change case is disturbing, thorough, and damning. Why anyone would attempt to change the sex of a child based on a circumcision accident, I don't know, but apparently it was de rigeur at the time. I found the most odd that the supposed liberator of us from our genes, Dr. Money, mostly ended up reinforcing nasty ideas about masculine and feminine gender identities, besides all his other scientifically and ethically suspect ideas.
