Teenager Undergoes Gender Reassignment Surgery

In 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.

your first thought was about his age... my first thought was hoping that the tax payers didn't have to pay for it! :)
