The Uninvited Dilemma : A Question of Gender,Kim Elizabeth StuartThe Uninvited Dilemma : A Question of Gender by Kim Elizabeth Stuart "This is an excellent survey of the transsexual population and should be required reading for helping professionals . . . For the transsexual, the book contains a good deal of 'how to' information and provides a community of experiences to which one can relate in a positive fashion.""The Uninvited Dilemma" is different from the autobiographies and clinical studies on transsexuality. It represents two years of research involving carefully structured, in-depth personal interviews with seventy-five transsexuals, consultations with members of the medical and mental health communities, and conversations with loved ones of transsexuals. This book will give you an understanding of the true nature of transsexuality. It is a remarkable reading experience for all who are interested in the human condition and and exploration of the most fundamental aspect of our humanity."

The Last Time I Wore a Dress,Daphne Scholinski, Jane Meredith AdamsThe Last Time I Wore a Dress by Daphne Scholinski, Jane Meredith Adams "This terrifying memoir recounts author Daphne Scholinski's three years spent in mental institutions for, among other things, Gender Identity Disorder. Daphne came from a busted home: Mom left to go to college and become a feminist and an artist; Dad stayed home with two daughters, the elder of whom, Daphne, he often beat. When Daphne started acting up at school, her shrinks decided to put her away. Her family, not knowing how to handle her, agreed. Because she was a tomboy who wore jeans and T-shirts and didn't act enough like a girl, her treatment, in addition to talk therapy, isolation, and drugs, required her to wear makeup, walk with a swing in her hips, and pretend to be obsessed with boys. This sounds awful enough, but when you realize that the confinement and treatment took place from 1981 to 1984, it's absolutely chilling. This book is both a powerful indictment of Gender Identity Disorder treatment and an inspiring testament of one person's survival."
