ezs note:  There are two things you can do to alleviate the problems transgender/intersex people have:

1)  If you a doctor experienced with hormones, spend some time in Zambia;

2)  Especially if you are planning a trip to Zambia, e-write or call the Ambassador.  In the US, the Ambassador is Dr. Ngosa Simyakula. E-write a polite letter regarding the plight of transgender/intersex Zambians.

ezs note:  Ah, what dumbasses these Florida, ahem, "correctional' officers are.   Listen, you may have been told that this is still the 17th century, but things a bit past that now.  In this century, females - cis or trans - go to the female jail.  I know that you long for the days of horsewhipping, but, hey, we all have to get over things.
