test sexual taboos is the story of a man whose physical sex and sexual identity were at odds. Only after sex change surgery could his real self, "Tina", emerge, his inner female half who had been with Timmy all his life. The matchless devastating study of how a woman lived for forty-four years as a man...being an abandoned abused child, always different from his peers, his suicidal impulses, and self mutilation. Four times a husband, three times a father, and a decorated G.I. Only after the surgical assassination of Timmy could he achieve peace of mind with the emergence of Tina who paradoxically was his greatest source of solace and greatest source of torment. Through "Tina's" story, Dr. Greenfield reveals a fundamental flaw that exists in our society, a flaw that would tailor each individual to fit into the proverbial Procrustean Bed rather than to accept the fact that each individual is unique. For transsexuals, recreating their sexual identity is not a choice, but a destiny!
