Critique of the new Reform blessing. Reform instructs a female-to-male transsexual to say: "Blessed are You God ... who has changed me into a man". Why not just use the traditional female blessing: "who has made me a man"? God made such a person with both a male body and a female Nshama (ideal self). Modern technology helps the body conform more closely to the person's Nshama. Our true self is our spiritual self, our Nshama. If a person has a female body but a male Nshama, then they are already truly male. God already made this person male.
