Look where transgender surgery started and look at the people involved. Whenever people (both right and left) talk about censorship, fascism etc these days they usually mention the Nazi book burnings. But what's not mentioned is what books they actually burned: transgender, pornographic material and communist shite.Lili Elbe was the first known recipient of male-to-female sex reassignment surgery, in Germany in 1930.
In 1930, Elbe went to Germany for sex reassignment surgery, which was highly experimental at the time. A series of four operations were carried out over a period of two years. The first surgery, removal of the testicles, was performed by Dr. Ludwig Levy-Lenz, under the supervision of sexologist Magnus Hirschfeld in Berlin. The rest of Elbe's surgeries were carried out by Kurt Warnekros, a doctor at the Dresden Municipal Women's Clinic.
The May 1933 book-burning at the Institute for Sexual Research by Nazi students, the February 1945 obliteration of the Dresden Women's Clinic and its records in Allied bombing raids, and the myth-making process itself have left gaps and inconsistencies in the Lili Elbe narrative that may never be resolved.
