What other treatment focuses on surgery while 30% of the patients commit suicide? Dr. Charles Ihlenfeld, a colleague of Dr. Harry Benjamin, reported in 1979 that 80% of those seeking a sex change should not have one and frequently too many of them committed suicide. Not much has changed since then. Consider the evidence: most who have had sex change surgery consider suicide, 41% make an attempt and about a third are in so much pain that, unable to see any other option, take their life. This book explores the issues behind transgender suicide.
