35:50 Question of the Week

"Last week you were talking about T people being forced to have surgery. I am a pre-op M/F living in South Carolina. The SC Dept. of Health and Enviromental Control (DEHEC), which controls birth certificates, requires that I have had surgery before they will allow gender change/verification on ID. The SC DOT is the same way about driver's liscense's now. This is making my life very difficult. What do you think is my best coarse of action to remedy this situation!"
(From: Brianna)
