transgender average population: 21 (rounded down)*
ezs note: Welcome to East Alton, Illinois!
*notes on statistics - Okay, I'm gonna get a little geeky here. However, it's important to validate the statistics. Ashley Smith (whose other claim to fame was a pic taken with the governor) was her claim to have 1 out of 300 people being transgender. I looked askance at this figure - after all, I'm a stickler for accurate statistics - but they have been verified by The Williams Institute, a UCLA think tank. Granted, this is only one study, but this is a national survey of some weight. Therefore, I trust their study.
