This is taken completely out of context no matter where it's discussed.

The law isn't actually that they have to be sterilised but that people wishing to register a gender change on official documents must have their original reproductive organs removed and have a body that “appears to have parts that resemble the genital organs” of the gender they want to register. Sterilisation just happens to be a consequence of that.

so yeah, if you want the japanese government to officially recognize a new gender, you're going the whole nine yards, but I doubt not being "officially" recognizd as transgender would actually effect anyone's ability to live a transgender lifestyle.

Same thing, but the "out of context" is good that way.

Unlike the shit in the west its to the point and doesn't give you (kids) the impression that your chromosomes change during the procedure.

How so? It makes perfect sense that if someone wants to be legally reclassified from one "gender" to another, that ALL of their prior reproductive organs should be removed and replaced to the best ability of medical science with their new "gender". I imagine any ethnic Japanese who go down this path will calmly comply to maintain a peaceful and harmonious society.
