This suggested some potential theories I may want to look at such as Blanchards Theory of Autogynephelia which is discussed in the third bulletpoint link above. I also read briefly about a case called The John/Joan study which I would like to read more about.

My initial source, however, will be ‘The Transsexual Scientist’ by Dana Bevan which offers information about the causes of Transsexualism from a scientific and personal point of view. I discovered this source by similiar search methods mentioned above, on amazon books.
