- 60 Downloads
Eight presurgical male-to-female transsexuals emitted significantly more feminine behaviors on a validated sex role motor behavior checklist than eight feminine women. Transsexuals also emitted more masculine behaviors than feminine women, although the total number of masculine behaviors in each group was far less than the total number of feminine behaviors. Indications for the management of transsexuals as well as the functions of sex role motor behavior in our society are discussed.
