Feb. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Nasser didn't think much of Iran's Islamic regime -- until it paid for him to become a woman.

``I realized that I had a problem and that I needed to solve it through an operation,'' Nasser, now 18, says at a downtown Tehran clinic two days after he became a she called Hasti. ``Even if lots of negative things are said about the regime, they also do things that are good.''

I was reading a thread the other day, (can't remember which one) but there was some debate as to how progressive Iran was becoming. I think this is an interesting article that gives credence to that thought.

I must admit, I find it surprising that the government is willing to pay for this but beats the alternative of severe persecution. I had no idea that the Iranian government has actually been doing this for quite some time. The third link contains an interesting video promoting the sex change operations.
