Gender Identity Disorder
/Transexuality in Japan Gender Identity Disorder(GID)
is a disorder in which a person...
who is discontent with their gender
feels as though they should have been born the opposite sex of their biological sex. Japan doesn't classify GID as a mental disorder... GID=Homosexuality ?? GID and transsexuality are completely different from
homosexuality!!! LOVE? Homosexuality:
When a man falls in love with
another man or a woman falls
in love with another woman.
Not all homosexuals have GID & not all transsexuals are homosexuals. Just like any other person,
people with GID can have
any sexual orientation. The law of ID In 2003, a law was formed in which people
with GID can legally change their gender &
name if they meet the proper requirement.
These requirements depend on the individual
and varies case by case. Despite this law,there is still
much discrimination & misunderstanding of people with GID.

Job oppotunity It can be difficult for transsexuals to find
work as employers can refuse to hire them
or fire them because of their disorder. In 2002, a company fired a man
with GID because he identified as a female
and wore women's clothing at work.
The man charged the company for discrimination
in a court of law, and fortunately won the lawsuit. http://www.47news.jp/CN/200206/CN2002062001000419.html in public Ataru Nakamura

cultually constructed, and if societie's gender roles are
removed, the problem will be fixed.
However, this is not the reality and the internal conflict within
the sufferers of GID still persists.
In order to prevent forms of discrimination from happening, the
general public needs to be educated about transsexuality and GID.
