While I can appreciate this, it is nothing more than glorifying someone who has lost a round to the system. And so far I don't have a clue what landed either one of them in prison. Let's hear more about the winners and stop glorifying losers! How about a series on the life of Lynn Conway or Virginia Prince or Christine Jorgensen or any of the many TS men and women who were decorated heros in a war. Or a speculative series on historical figures who may have been TS, but because of the time and place, could not transition (Amelia Earhart?) This ground is fertile with "Trans" material with out going into the prisons for tales of woe.
