Why transgender people are being sterilised in some European countries

I haven’t heard of any, but I’m no doctor and maybe there is a way. However, the sophistry of the article makes me think that they use ‘sterilization’ as a stand in for ‘sex change operation.’ I’d assume the broader public sees no issue with requiring that legally redefining someone’s sex be based on their physical sex characteristics, hence the obfuscation.


I welcome a clarification!
