ezs note: It turns out that the story told by the transgender boy is NOT true. I'm sorry about that, and I will pull the previous article. What I wrote in the opinion piece afterward, however, remains true. If you see a transgender person being attacked and/or assaulted, turn them in!
ezs note: When seeing a doctor for the first time, don't be afraid to ask. Like what school she/he went to. Like how much coursework in transgender medicine was given as part of overall medicine. If you don't ask, you are at their mercy!
