Australia court in transgender ruling

"Australia's highest court has ruled that two transgender people can be legally recognised as men, even though they have not had complete sex changes.
The decision has been welcomed by support groups for transgender people.
Australia is now one of a growing number of countries to relax the rules on surgical requirements to determine gender.
The two people at the centre of this case have not been identified.
Both had their breasts removed and underwent male hormone therapy, but they both retain some female sex organs."
