Transsexuals in the Olympics. : If the designer steroid thing doesn't work out...

If someone wants to either add to or subtract from their physique for Olympic glory, such dedication should be rewarded, no? Any chance this could benefit in the reverse way most of us are pondering? Could a new man take gold in gymnastics, or diving, or something like that?

Isn't part of the whole procedure of these operations taking mass quantities of banned steroids? Do the transexuals have to continue taking them to maintain the masculine/feminie traits or do they somehow get them to start producing their own? Not so versed on the transexual operation procedures.

The Greek government withdrew legislation that would have made it easier for brothels to operate in Athens during the 2004 Olympics. Out of everything I read, this bothered me most.

For those seriously curious about transsexuality, may I recommend exploring this, watching this and taking this.
