Sex: Unknown (2001)
"Bruce Reimer was born a completely normal boy. But after a freak medical accident [during a circumcision] destroyed his genitalia, high-profile psychologist and sex researcher John Money persuaded Bruce's parents to surgically change him into a girl. Soon, Bruce became Brenda, beginning a headline-grabbing medical, sociological and psychological experiment. In the years that followed, Money trumpeted Brenda's case as an unqualified success. And it was this very success that helped establish a standard of care for all infants with abnormal genitalia. Today, infant boys born with missing or unformed genitals continue to be castrated and surgically changed into girls. Delve into the mysterious world of gender identity as NOVA offers a stunning look at the subject [of gender reassignment] with the help of noted psychologists and researchers, and through personal insights from the Reimer family--including candid, heartrending interviews with Janet Reimer and her son, who ultimately rejected his female identity and is now living as a man." [Description from cassette box] [Case of John/Joan or Bruce/Brenda or John Colapinto or Bruce Reymer or David Reimer --- intersexuality or intersex or hermaphrodism]
