7732SEX: UNKNOWNSEX: UNKNOWN2001color54 minvhs (Nova series) Bruce Reimer was born a completely normal boy. In 1965 a botched circumcision started the boy on a nightmare of medical meddling with his sexual identity. High-profile psychologist and sex researcher John Money persuaded his parents to surgically change him into a girl. In the years that followed, Money trumpeted Brenda's case as an unqualified success. It set the standard of care for all infants with abnormal genitalia. But there was never any reporting of Bruce/Brenda's real life. Finally NOVA offers a stunning look at the subject with the help of noted psychologists and researchers, and through personal insights from the Reimer family including candid, heartrending interviews with Janet Reimer and her son, who ultimately rejected his female identity and is now living as a man.
