ezs note:  When I read about Thurmond, I had to give a tip of the hat to them.  No, it wasn't to their tiny, tiny, tiny population (five!)  but to their wonderfully progressive attitude barring discrimination to LGBTQ folks.  Needless to say, Thurmond is in danger of becoming extinct.  If you have a hardy soul, consider Thurmond as a place you can rebuild.

ezs note:  Indiana people - if you are transgender or a friend, and are acquainted with your state senator or representative, meet them personally.  Not to protest or anything - just to let him/her that there is there is a transgender person in their district and not on Mars somewhere.  Granted, there are a few dingbats out there, but the majority are simply unaware.
