  1. Thanks for that link, it’s a fascinating discussion.

    I’ve had trouble understanding transsexuality. I’m also a person who was thin and pretty untroubled by thoughts about weight until age 40, and has been fat since then. I constantly have feelings of “this can’t be my body” and “that can’t be me in the mirror”. This gives me a lot to ponder.
