The life story of Vins Santiago, ex-trans-gay, is a rare case of someone who found it impossible to turn one's back on one's XY chromosome.
If the gay rights bill passes, will the popular TV show Maala-ala Mo Kaya? be penalized?
Meanwhile, brace yourself, for here is an avalanche of ex-gay stories:

Wanted: A more comprehensive report on sex change
By a strange twist of fate, I caught on TV Howie Severino's special report on Filipino transsexuals. I was tempted to run away to the hills, given Severino's liberal blinders and anti-Church stance, but I gave him a chance. After all, he's brilliant when he wants to be.
Sadly, the report left me dumb with questions that I thought should have been addressed first. I wish someone could write an article to answer the following questions that Severino might have intentionally skipped:
- What's the existing medical code of ethics on sex change? Why is sex change being allowed at all?
- What's the legality of sex change? Why is it not being criminalized? Should it be? Should those who undergo sex change be penalized as well, or is it best to leave trans-gays to their choice?
- What are the legal repercussions of sex change, especially in terms of property and adoption?
- Is there an existing history of sex change? What is it?
- Optional: What is the morality of sex change? How does the Church or other churches view it?
- What are the physiological and psychological effects of switching hormones and genitals while retaining the XY chromosome?
- And the biggest question of all: What is the secret, inner life of the transsexual that led him to pursue sex change?
Apparently, Severino assumed transsexualism is yet another normal (meaning natural, meaning genetic) variation in the "wide spectrum of human sexuality." He didn't seem to give any consideration to the possibility that his assumption could be wrong.
