What do you mean by Young people? I'm over 50 and those are issues for me as well. And any other Transexual! How do you know when you'll get read going into a Ladies Room? I just drove around the country and I used Ladies Rooms in every state I was in, but in some of those states I was terrified. Things went well and there were no "EEEEKKK There's a man in here!" Most people were very nice, extremely nice even, But all it takes is one nut case. I've just gotten back from the Home Depot where I did surprise a salesman or two. Another was gracious enough to call me Ma'am The worry is going out of living your life everyday, but who knows.

Young people ? Do some research. I'm 70 and excepting sports I face the same problems every day. For fair and balanced coverage you might also do an article on the life-quality improvements after crossing over. They are many. I know it requires research and other traditional news-gathering efforts, a rarity these days.
