John Money

John Money, a controversial figure in the study of human sexual psychology, has died. I corresponded with him briefly, years ago, in connection with a research project. While I think he made some serious wrong terms in gender-identity issues, I think his essential and intuitive understanding of a certain range of sexual deviations was correct; certainly better pitched than the arid theorizing of more academically approved psychologists.
