Teenager Undergoes Gender Reassignment SurgeryIn Argentina, a 17-year old boy recently underwent gender reassignment surgery to become a female. The operation actually took place in La Plata, a town just outside of Buenos Aires where I studied for a semester in college. Kind of fun to see such an obscure town in the news.
I'm not sure how I feel about the surgery. I'm not transgendered, and I don't know what it's like to go through something like that, but my first thought is that 17 seems too young for the full surgery.
