He's the guy that convinced David Reimer's parents to castrate him and raise him as a girl.

Apparently I have to edit this post so I shall not tell you my true feelings about this.<br><br>
It suffices to say that I do not feel all that much remorse about the demise of a deceitful child abuser.

Ugh....makes him seem like an intelligent, compassionate man. Unless you know anything about the subjects that interested him.

And that he not <b>only</b> led to a boy being needlessly castrated but also proceeded to sexually abuse him and his intact brother.

And because of his ravings about the "perfect success of the twins case" THOUSANDS of other intersex babies were subjected to gender assignment surgery. And TO THIS DAY the AAP supports immediate "normalization" surgery on intersex infants.<br><br>
It's really freaky that I'm actually reading the book about David Riemer right now. I've never read it before. It's more about John Money than David. It's so sad. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying">

My BIL was born in 1974 with a very minor anomoly, when you consider the whole of the male anatomy. He had underformed, nonproductive testicles. The doctors pushed horribly for him to have a sex change performed. My ILs utterly refused. He is now the epitome of male-ness and Mr. Intact GQ Model himself. All he does is take a light dose of testosterone and everything's dandy. Compare that treatment to making him a female!

I need to ask for some editign on this thread. MDC does not host celebrations of the death of people. I think this thread has merit as to the history of who John Money was but we cannot discuss this in the sense of celebrating his death. Please review your posts and edit as necessary.<br>
Thanks

Umm.... I don't care who this guy was, that's very horrible to be having a party that he died.

OMG, are you serious?! That's so many shades of wrong I don't know where to start, exactly.
