Re: Sad story: German Sarah Gronert considers retiring because............
My understanding no. That is only the case for transexuals (men who converted to women). For her, she chose to be female as it was easier for her , perhaps both mentally and physically. They usually do this very young (deciding what gender to raise the child as) so as to avoid social ridicule for the child as they grow older.
so why did she make the decision at the age of 19?
