It would be like me feeling bad all my life because I wish I only had 4 toes instead of 5. The Elwood College students are as close as a brother and sister can get — despite the fact they were born (biological) brothers. It was a matter of life or death: "I knew if that happened, I would've killed myself".Georgie's case made it through the Family Court quickly.She was granted access to hormone blockers, and to cross-sex hormone therapy.She could've taken it and ran.
