I agree! And the most important thing in the article is "The law can only do so much!" Too many people think a law can solve all the problems, it can't! Then you build a theoretically perfect organization to pass such a law, and it passes! Where do you go from here? Do you scratch around for a new cause? How do you de-construct this entity? I think it's better to get a job/career and work at acceptance in your small sphere. Every TS I've known has been success oriented and they will work to achieve success, Ala Lynn Conway or Maggie Stumpf or the many Drs, Lawyers, research scientists, and God knows what! Be good at what you do and you won't need a law.
