Have you ever wondered what the experience of transsexualism or transgenderism (TSTG) is like or what causes these phenomena? This book provides answers to these questions by creating a new genre of literature that incorporates both autobiography and understandable science. The autobiographical information is based on self-observations of a Ph.D. psychologist and extends for over fifty years from her discovery at age 4 that she was a transsexual. The scientific analysis is organized to parallel the autobiographical story. This book is intended for those with personal or professional interest in TSTG or those interested in a tale of self-discovery. As a scientist, the author has spent 7 years critically reviewing over 2700 scien¬tific articles and has found over 60 proposed causes of TSTG. Like a detective story, most of these candidate “suspects” can be eliminated by analyzing the available scientific evidence. These include many of the most commonly believed causal factors, including lifestyle choice, sexual fetish, prenatal hormone levels, mental disorder, and a “gender center” in the brain. Her analysis reveals two likely causal factors that can work together or separately to produce TSTG.
