Trans communities are in the headlines. Everybody has an opinion on ‘what transsexuality is’. But how do trans people them-selves describe being trans? This community based study examined... More > this question. Findings include that the diversity and complexity of people’s experience by far exceeds what is commonly acknowledged. Physical embodiment and social acceptance are important to trans people, but the most unifying themes are self-finding, self-realization and spiritu-ality. Experiences described cover a wide range. They can in fact be mutually exclusive. This suggests that any simplistic ‘one fits all’ explanation will be oppressive to at least some trans people. In a sad twist, the research finds that trans people who chal-lenge the clinical model of transsexuality the most, are also the ones who most likely will not participate in clinical studies - thus guaran-teeing that much of the diversity within communities remains hidden - except by community based research like the one at hand.< Less

The treatment of transsexuals turns medicine into a system of well organized prejudice, cruelty and mistreatment. Patients are abused while the perpetrators are convinced that this is necessary, good... More > treatment! In volume I of Manufacturing Insanity Eva examines how it is possible that patients suffer and die while doctors watch in complete denial. Maybe this denial of patient's needs and rights, all the abuse and death is created by an inherent systemic inability of medicine to acknowledge just these needs? But doctors letting their patients suffer and die because they are incapable to accept their own shortcomings? That's insane! Well, maybe not! Because on her way through the jungle of medical history, politics, practice, self-understanding and the patient experience Eva finds that in the end this is all about sex, power and cultist beliefs! The one piece in the puzzle that is completely irrelevant is the emotional integrity of the individual patient! Welcome to Manufacturing Insanity!< Less

In volume II of Manufacturing Insanity Eva contrasts generally accepted views of transsexuality with her own and interprets both views on the background of current medical practice. Eva then proposes a new model for gender and transsexuality and examines why any better or reasonable approach must be unacceptable to current medical practice. In the last part Eva proposes a better system for the delivery of medical services, one that does not leave anybody behind, one that does not accept the death of a patient just because that patient doesn't fit the expectations of the system!
