Now I suffer from serious complication out of gender reassignment surgery in Thailand forced to recognisation of my personality, that is, my legal sex. But no dorcor help or care me and I also suffer from dreadful discrimination because of my disabilities, not only my gender identity. And further I am oppressed because I translated The Yogyakarta Principles into Japanese and Latin that are in Wipipedia. But I regret to translate this into Swedish where forced stelirisations are required for legal sex change. Yet I am released to know that United Nation have recognised NGO for LGBT according to the additional recommandation of The Yogyakarta Principles. I have been treated as a slave because of my gender identity. Still now I even regret that I hesitated to kill myself at the age of ten. My future depends on the permission of my asylum.
