Whomever the poster is the word is not "Transgendered" it is "Transgender" We are transgender people. You wouldn't say he is gayed.

Anyway, to comment on this article, I think there should be a federal law protecting the rights of transgender people. One time, my wife tried making an appointment for me at a hair salon. When my wife asked if she was ok with a transsexual she said, "Maybe you should find another place." I didn't know any better back then as that was about 12 years ago, but maybe I should have started a lawsuit?
