Many of the prettiest, most sensuous T-women are non-op. I still don't agree with SRS. T-women are special and unique women. SRS removes that uniqueness. In my opinion, it's similar to circumcision;unnecessary.

I can't believe what I'm hearing or maybe I can. The whole purpose of Transition is to move from the opposite gender one was born to, as part of this change one is expected to have genital surgery to complete this change. For no one CAN truly be the considered the opposite gender if one has the genitalia of the gender one changed from......In other words you can't be a real women when you've got a cock between your legs, as women don't have penis they have vaginas and anyone who thinks they can is just kidding themselves. When one lives as a women they agree to commit to the social obligation of a female in our society, and one can't do that fully when one has a penis can one ?

Back-up Sister. Gender is determined at birth;and,cannot be changed. Sexual identity has nothing to do with gender identity. In my opinion, most MtF are non-op. You obviously are ignorant of the current medical facts. Check out JAMA.

HAHAHA "Sexual Identity" theres no such thing ! I am hardly ignorant and certainly have a full knowledge of the currant medical facts. Gender is determine in the womb in the third trimester by surge of hormone in the mother triggered by brain waves. Up and until this point ALL babies are female. After this influx of hormones the fetus develops into a male for without this influx of hormones the fetus will remain a female. It is well documented that in the case of HBS Diagnosis MTF transsexuals that they weren't washed with enough hormones by this influx in the third trimester leaving them with female brain genders and male genitalia. So as you can now see Transsexual are women from birth and only by transitioning and having GRS can they complete their journey to be who they should have been from birth. Those that dress as women and pretend to be women but who don't want GRS or aren't driven to get it aren't truly women. Herein is where the difference lies between Transsexuals and the Transgender. While the Transsexual is driven to self confirm their gender the Transgender is satisfied with merely living "AS" a women never really becoming one.
