What happens when you awaken to the realization that you have been born into the wrong body???  Until the 1950's, many people who felt that way were locked away in sanitoriums or committed suicide. Christine Jorgensen was the first male to female transgendered person in the United States. Since no hospital was equipt to handle the surgical procedure, she went to Europe.  By today's standards,  the surgery was crude, at best. now, in the 21st Century, the surgery has been fine-tuned to an art. Many transgendered people could not be singled out in a crowd. Some of tose who undergo the surgery, do not seek genital reassignment, yet they consider themselves to be members of the opposite sex.
