    I'd only add (of course) that transsexual women are also not real popular in our client state.

    I found this...I'm sorry to say I don't know much about the issue beyond the various western queer press and NYT articles that have appeared over the last few years...

    ...j'ai découvert que tout le malheur des hommes vient d'une seule chose, qui est de ne savoir pas demeurer en repos dans une chambre.

    •  I'm sure transsexual men aren't either (3+ / 0-)

      but there may be fewer of them, and they're more likely to be beaten and/or killed for different reasons long before getting to the "out" stage.

      •  Yeah.... (3+ / 0-)

        ...absolutely.  I don't know if there are fewer or not.  It has at least made the press so I was prepared to defend it.  I would imagine that all queer folks are at great risk.
