Charles was one of those who complained and, while the hearing was ongoing, he was already in the process of changing back into a man.Having decided he was not a true transsexual, but had been 'confused' after the break-up of his 12-year marriage, Charles had his breast implants removed and underwent three private operations after being referred by the gender clinic at London's Charing Cross Hospital to reconstruct his male genitalia, using skin grafts from his stomach.
So when a woman survives her husband, she’s got a circle of friends from the neighborhood, from work, from her card game, from her book club, from her salsa classes. Regardless, he dictates the terms of the relationship based on HIS needs and schedule. To his credit, he’s taking things slow, to avoid diving into another serious relationship that he may end up regretting.
My question is this – does this apply to widowers as well or is it fair to give him a little more time and just get busy with other things so I don’t put pressure on him?
He says he has always taken it slow in dating and this is nothing new.
Charles blames his ghastly predicament on the UK's then top expert on transsexualism, gender psychiatrist Dr Russell Reid - now retired - who in 2007 was reprimanded by the General Medical Council for rushing patients into sex-change treatments.
Dr Russell Reid was found guilty of serious misconduct by a GMC panel who rebuked him for his "lack of caution in initiating hormonal and surgical gender reassessment treatment in patients without more careful and thorough investigation and assessment".
I just read your book “Why He Disappeared” and really appreciated the great info.
