No matter how much you know, you'll learn something
23 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This short documentary packs a lot of exhaustive research and information on differing sexuality, tolerance and intolerance around the world. The documentarians literally went around the world and interviewed everyone from "ladieboys" in Thailand to gay boys and men in intolerant India. It explores the fascination the repressed, so-called "modern" West has with the acceptance of the transgendered in the socially more advanced Eastern cultures, and even interviews Dutch physicians who undertook a long, in-depth study of the differing brain structures of men, woman, transsexual men and women, and all the variations, proving an actual physical difference in the brain structures depending on the individual's sexual preference: a study our "advanced" Western culture never bothered to undertake.

The documentary is fascinating and at times a very painful study, as it also shows how much people are made to suffer by their society (up to and including murder), because of a sexuality they were born with.

No matter how much you think you understand human sexuality, you will learn something you didn't know before. You may even find yourself losing some of your prejudices and discomfort with others' sexual identities. A documentary that should have been made 30 years ago, if the American public could have handled it.
