38:45 Question of the Week

"I identify as someone who had SID or Sexual Identity Disorder, I do not feel that I had GID or Gender Identity Disorder because I believe that Gender was my constant or rather the thing which I could not change whereas sex was what I could change.
I feel that there are a lot of people like me, people who need to change their sexual identity because of their gender identity which (will always remain the same). I believe that our gender identity is (who we are) and that in most cases our sex is what needs to be changed.
Changing our sexual identity is important to most of us as transsexual people and perhaps some need to change their physical sex which is how I identify, I needed to change my physical sex with hormones and surgery.
I don't pretend to speak for everyone but I am confused as to who and what is a transgender person because to me it would seem that changing one's gender would be like taking on a role in a movie."
