ezs note:  It's nice to think that Jared and Ivanka can persuade Donald to better rights for LGBTQ+ folks.  It's also nice to think that the sky will rain gumdrops tomorrow. C'mon, NYT - there's optimism, but then there's foolishness - and I suspect you've chosen the latter.

ezs note:  One thing that transgender women and men might want to try is self-defense classes.  (See the previous day's article, "Kelly Herron slams group using her attack in anti-transgender bathroom campaign".)  Yeah, it might be nice to have the police around, but we must be realistic.  Some larger cities and towns offer classes at a very low or no cost to you.
