Man changes sex, parents sue hospital

A couple whose only son underwent a sex change operation has sued a hospital for compensation and to have the surgery reversed because their “family line” was broken, a Chinese newspaper reported.The Yancheng Evening News said the parents and relatives of a person whose name the newspaper gave as Xie Xiaoxin also became violent and occupied a ward at the hospital for 11 days in September in an attempt to get US$3.6 million in compensation and their son’s gender changed again.

I guess there’s also some issues around who exactly gets to consent to "informed" consent!
