11:52 Question of the Week
Question: "How accurate is the COGIATI ("COmbined Gender Identity And Transsexuality Inventory" -ed.) test used to determine ones tendencies toward transexualism? Also what other tests are available on line that one can use to determine his sexual tendencies. I scored 400 on the COGIATI and for anyone taking the test that makes me a transexual. "
