"Is there federal legislation protecting the Transgendered community from hate crimes?"
(From: David)

"Why is VISIBILITY so unthinkable to the vast majority of transgendered oriented individuals...still now in the 21st century??... I don't buy the usual assorted "ostracism" cop outs...since I've had my share of demonising and threats, and I've continued to show my androgynaety openly. "
