Lisa Ling will be airing a report on this person this week. Nightline ran a teaser on the young woman last night who is undergoing hormone treatments and surgery to transform from female to male, and hopes to launch a career as a male underwear model, complete with enormous biceps and tribal tatoos.
I truly feel great sympathy and pity for people like this who suffer from such a great chasm between their minds and their physical being. But it's hard to celebrate this transformation when it involves becoming a bizarre caricature or parody of what the person thinks the other gender really is. I wish them all the best in dealing with their torment.
