Erectile Dysfunction often called impotency is when a man finds it difficult to obtain or sustain an erection. This disorder effects one in ten men on a long term level. Most men suffers from it time to time due to being drunk, tired, or not just feeling like having sex at the time. On a long term basis it affects sleeping habits, love life, and emotions. Edwin told of his erectile dysfunction due to his prostate cancer surgery. He stated he was mentally prepared but he was still devastated about it. He stated that even if you are embarrassed there is hope out there you just have to seek help for the disorder. In order to resolve the problem of erectile dysfunction one must cut back on drinking, stop smoking, staying away from recreational drugs, rest, relaxation, sleep, talking to you significant other to release some tensions and anxiety, seek counseling, and medication.

A 20/20 interview was conducted on kids suffering with gender identity disorder. The first interviewee was a seventeen year old boy that is biologically a girl. He felt as if nature had played a trick of him. There is also a ten year old boy that lives as a girl. She had an understanding of what being transgendered meant; her definition was “a gender that wants to be another one”. When asked if that is what she was she replied “yes”. We even meet a six year old girl born a boy. All of their parent’s say that it is not a phase they are going through it’s a permanent adoption of gender roles that they feel comfortable with. The report says most kids with gender identity disorder live in the shadows to escape a society that condemns them to be freaks of nature. They are frequently cast off by their family which causes them to hate who they are. Many suffer from depression, drug abuse, violence, and suicide. (Jazz, 2008 )

She asked her mom when she was only two years of age when the fairy was going to come and change her sex organ from penis to vagina. At the age of three a doctor informed the Jennings to seek professional help for Jazz after noticing all the symptoms of gender identity disorder. The couple took Jazz to Dr. Marilyn Voltka who made the diagnosis. Dr. Voltka states that she was led to believe Jazz had gender identity disorder through conversation when she mistakenly called Jazz a he and she corrected him saying he was a girl; and also using to dolls one being a boy and one being a girl of which Jazz said he was the boy but he wanted to be the girl. There are only theories as to why children suffer from the disorder. (Jazz, 2008 )
