ezs note:  people of Washington state - if you are transgender, or have a friend, relative, or loved one who is, YOU can stop this idiotic bill.  If you have a little money, make a donation.  Talk to your friends and neighbors.  Write or e-write letters to the editor.  If you have a little talent (or even if you don't) produce something for the local public TV station.  Do something I haven't thought of (yet💆).  Whatever you do, DO IT!
