Logo for All Mixed Up: Putting Gender Identity Into Perspective
This site presents issues related to gender identity from the persepective of a transsexual psychology graduate student. The site is introduced with the the following: "Academic perspectives on the psychology of transsexuality are represented by groups like the Harry Benjamin International Gender Dysphoria Association (HBIGDA) and are codified in the mental illness model of the DSM-IV-TR as Gender Identity Disorder (GID) and Transvestic Fetishism (TF).

This is another example of the the field of Psychology "going off the deep end." Wait until child molesters and sexual predators have their day with the DSM. I did not like the site because the behavior behind it is not acceptable.

I browsed the web-site for about twenty minutes, I was looking at it for an
assignment in my Educational Psychology class. I think the information is very
clear and straight forward. It is a great site to understand what it really is
to be a transsexual. Putting this into perspective would definitely be useful in
education. Gender differences are often a great misconception, I think this
information would be very beneficial to learning and teaching..

Technical Remarks:

The web-site is very organized and easy to follow. Separating the information
into categories allows the information to be easily accessed.

The material on this website was very easy to read and very well organized. I
thought this was a great site because it helps show people see what it is like
to be transsexual. I believe this information could be very well used in the
classroom. I think this topic is very important for the education programs and
is very beneficial.

Technical Remarks:

I thought this web site was very easy to read being that it was seperated into
several categories. It was very well organized.

A great site for understanding the emotional and mental differences that make
one a transsexual. The author organizes all the material so one can find what
they are looking for, and she explains everything very clearly. I read the
material for about an hour, exploring what it is to be a transsexual. This most
definitely could be used as an educational tool. The information can be applied
to sociology, and psychology. I did not give it the highest rating because the
information was only subjective.

Technical Remarks:

The material was very easy to read though. The web sit was organized very well,
as to let any new user find and or peruse the martial with ease.

I spent about 15 minutes brousing the material. The quality of the content I
felt was very high with concepts that were educationally significant. I feel it
is a good teaching and learning tool because it is broken down into categories
with good, interesting information following each category.

Technical Remarks:

I think first time users will have an easy time using this resource.
