Trans-sexualism is:

  • the desire to be the other sex
  • to be distinguished from transvestism
  • mainly seen in men who wish to become female

If a man wishes to have a female phenotype then the surgery required is extensive, including procedures such as penile amputation, creation of an artificial vagina and breast implants.
