The Transgender Taboo

46 minutes 5.5/10 based on 10 votes

In the west, our gender defines us as individuals and as a society. It influences how we act and interact, even our characteristics. Strength and aggression are seen as maskuline, sensitivity and insight are feminine – so when you can’t tell who’s male and who’s female, it can be confusing, disturbing and at times; frightening.

This is the story of America’s post-operative transmen, Thailand’s kathoeys, the Fa’afafine of Samoa, the sex-reassignment surgery capital of the world, Trinidad, Colorado, USA and a couple in a long-term relationship in which both partners are transgender.

    “Attack the very foundations of society itself”? Hmm I didn’t even get past the intro. No doubt a Christian lobby ostensibly produced doco. Forget it

      You’re being silly. This isn’t a Christian┬áconspiracy… It is a badly made documentary. What the overly-dramatic screen writer is trying to say is that human society revolves around the misconception that there are two genders and that each gender is directly linked to the sex of the person. You might be less of a fart knocker if you watch it all the way through.

    I found the tone to be a bit over the top as well, but this is an alright documentary because it depicts transgender folks from all over the world. It’s good to see different perspectives on the same topic.
