>>>> THE MONSTER
LIST of LINKS <<<<<
it is folks, the Mother of all TG Link lists! Formerly available through
the University of Southampton, UK, web site, now I've reproduced this
incredible list of links here to make sure it doesn't disappear on me
(or you) again. It's so long I had to seperate it out into its own page
(word of warning: its just text but it's a 145k file - which means
it may take more than 20 seconds to load on a 56K dial-up connection)
SELECTED INFORMATION SITES
SUCCESSES by Lynn
is one of the most uplifting collections on the web. SO MANY people
only focus on the negatives - all the transsexual people who have been
victims of hate crimes, suicides, murders, prostitution and sexual slavery.
It makes one start to think that the only outcome of transition is a
life filled with fear, abuse, and other hardships. But Lynn Conway (
a TS Success herself) has assembled a wonderful tribute page to the
TS women who are not only succeeding, but LEADING in their fields. Wonderful
ammunition against anyone who says you'll never make anything of your
life if you transition. These women did!
Birth of Venus
Richards web site is a wonderful resource full of information presented
in a way that's easy to understand and navigate. A great place to learn
stuff for yourself, or a site to point to for friends or relatives with
questions. [note: her site is rarely available due to ISP issues
- someone with a server and space PLEASE host or mirror the site for
you are seriously considering transition, you'll want to read this first!
The web's BEST resource for specifics concerning how you plan for and
succeed in transition from one gender to another.
Dysphoria: A Guide for the Non-Transitioning
the title of this site is a bit off the mark, as the author admits electrolysis
and rhinoplasty are "steps" in her own "transition",
which (to me) says she IS "transitioning." However, I include
the link because the author seemed to summarize what GID is in a very
International Journal of Transgenderism
is the definitive medical journal on the subject of transgender problems.
REAL information, not conjecture from the people who have made this
problem their life's work. Can be kind of heady to read at times, after
all it is a journal for doctors.
Society of North America
is the definitive resource (in the USA at least) for information about
intersexed people. It does have a "political agenda" which
is to stop doctors from "assigning" intersex babies shortly
after birth, because so many intersex people have found in adulthood
that the doctors had not chosen wisely, or wish they'd been allowed
to retain the equipment with which they were born into this world.
