Wasn't aware that 17 EU countries required it to change gender on legal documents.It is prohibited in the US.I don't really see the necessity of testicles on MtF;but,I don't support forced-sterilization.Estrogen therapy will shrink them.In my opinion,testicular removal is a safer alternative to full GRS;I wouldn't object to it,myself.It does reduce the amount of needed estrogen.

Frankly speaking, many of those people would benefit from psychiatric treatment instead of surgical manipulations
Itīs time to name things by their real name.
Otherwise we are not better than in the medieval times, when it was politically uncorrect to say that Earth is travelling around the Sun and not vice versa.
