00:00 Introduction
12:22 Question of the Week:
Do transgendered individuals who hormonally/surgically transition do it to bring their bodies in-line with their own feelings of who they are, or are do they do it so that they can openly express themselves as who they feel they are without abuse for inappropriate gender behaviour in our present bi-polar society? I guess what I'm asking is, why we feel that we need to morph our bodies to feel happy about ourselves within society?
(From Katherine, London, UK)
