People who are happy about their gender reassignment
Everyone has the right to feel good in their own skin. It’s very easy to say. But this is not a matter of course for everyone. Many people are already struggling because their body, face or other special features do not correspond to “the norm”.

It becomes even more difficult for trans people to reconcile the expectations of those around them with their own body awareness. Outwardly they seem to be clearly male or clearly female, but often have known since early childhood that this is not true – they are something else.
Since legal and medical sources only count people who have been diagnosed as transsexual and who are taking concrete steps towards gender reassignment, there is no official information on the number of those affected. But it is estimated that up to 100,000 people are transgender in Germany alone.
Once a person decides to have a physical sex reassignment, they face a very lengthy process. Mandatory psychotherapy and medical assessments can drain your energy. Sometimes experts decide almost arbitrarily whether they find the patient “convincing enough” to be accepted as a man or a woman in everyday life.
However, representing the gender you want to live as convincingly as possible can be vital. Because trans people, who are recognizable as such in public, are all too often victims of horrific hate crimes and acts of violence. The approved transformation through hormone therapy and matching operations can literally save lives.
The transformation can also work wonders for the psyche of those affected, because finally they can openly show how they feel – what a relief!
