" It's not that hard on the internet these days to set up an other-sexed identity, and 'pass' rather convincingly. I wonder what thoughts you might have about this kind of thing. It's so much easier to be "out" about things like being differently gendered in the comparative anonymity of the net than it is in person. "

40:52 It's a harrowing tale of false arrest, physical abuse and unjust incarceration. Canadian transwoman Alexandria Tucker was arrested for assault after her lover's ex-husband assaulted her. Montana police denied her access to a lawyer and physically assaulted her, then she was incarcerated for two years after being talked into a phony plea bargain.
Alexandria is suing the "United States, the state of Montana, and various civil and state for damages in the largest civil complaint by an individual in US history."
