This iReport is part of an assignment:
Don't destroy people's lives because of a letter
Even in places where trans-folk have some civil rights protections, the arbitrary governmental hoops make it nearly impossible to be treated fully as citizens. We are treated as liars, "freaks" and terrorists because a name or gender marker on a resume or government document doesn't match what someone else perceives us to be. That M or F on a document, regardless of surgical status, too often is used to off-handedly discriminate against us.
