Benjamin is quietly and slowly being proven correct

The two type model of transsexualism looked better 30 years ago. Now it looks long in the tooth and not at all representative of today's youth. These kids, regardless of sexual orientation, are transitioning young and sometimes even switching orientation along the way.

If a theory is correct it should be able to stand up under the light of social change.

It's looking more and more like Harry Benjamin (and by extension Anne Vitale) were right by focusing on a universal model of dysphoria based on intensity irrespective of natal sex. This approach is elegant and universal which all the best theories leading to verifiable experimental results possess.

Sorry Blanchard.
