日期201706
簡介There are people in society who have the feeling that they were born into the wrong body. Through services provided by the Hospital Authority, there are a range of treatment options available in Hong Kong for people having gender identity disorder or gender dysphoria. As well as emotional and physical issues, people with gender identity disorder or gender dysphoria might face complex social and legal issues. They may want to keep their birth gender private and be legally recognised in their new gender for all purposes. In May 2013, the CFA ruled in W’s case that a transsexual person who had undergone full SRS should be entitled to marry a person of the sex opposite to his or her reassigned gender. In response, the Government established the Inter-departmental Working Group on Gender Recognition (“IWG”) on 13 January 2014 to follow up on the said observations of the CFA. For the avoidance of doubt, it should be noted from the outset that same-sex marriage or civil partnership is outside the scope of the IWG’s study.

簡介社會上有些人自覺天生身體錯配,在香港,醫院管理局透過其服務,為患有性別認同障礙或性別不安的人士提供多項治療方案。患有性別認同障礙或性別不安的人士,除了受情感和生理問題困擾外,亦可能要面對複雜的社會和法律問題,他們可能希望原生性別的私隱可以保密,以及新性別在法律上各方面獲承認。2013年5月,終審法院在W案中裁定,已接受整項性別重置手術的變性人士有權與性別異於其重置性別的人結婚。有鑑於此,政府於2014年1月13日成立工作小組,以跟進上述終審法院的意見,研究全面保障變性人士的法律權利所可能需要的法例和相關行政措施,並作出合適的改革建議;及為達到上述目的,進行諮詢和邀請合適的專家或專業人士協助。

題目Feminist views on transgender topics
日期20190202
簡介Feminist views on transgender topics range from accepting to critical. Feminists with exclusionary views have been referred to as “TERFs” (short for trans­exclusionary radical feminist). They generally object to the acronym and have called it a slur or even hate speech. The increased number and public profile of individuals transitioning coincided with second-wave feminism, and so most of the first statements and books were written in the 1970s. They were written with reference mainly to people then known as male-to-female (MTF) transsexuals, who are now frequently called trans women.

題目If There Was a Gay-Straight Switch, Would You Switch?
日期20090414
簡介Is there a switch that turns you gay? Studies seem certain to bolster the growing scientific consensus that homosexuality is biological rather than learned. And they point to an answer to the lingering question of whether sexual orientation is hard-wired into the brain or whether it can be altered. But both sides of the debate agree that just because fruit flies and mice can easily switch from straight to gay does not mean that it is that easy for humans to make the same transition.

題目U.S. parents accept children’s transgender identity by age three
日期20161222
簡介Increasingly across the United States, doctors and parents of transgender children are embracing their identity as soon it starts becoming obvious, sometimes around age 3. Many say they are finding much greater chances of happiness and well-being when children are nurtured in their new gender identity at such a young age. With better education, today’s transgender children generally receive much more support than those surveyed adults did in their youth.
