In reference to your article about a transgender woman who is also a drug dealer I would like to point out a glaring mistake in your report.
The person in question is a woman. Continuing to refer to her by male pronouns is plain and simply wrong showing a lack of respect not just for Jean but for all transgendered people out there who are constantly treated the same way through their lives and even in texts talking about their deaths.

Your Oppressors Are Not Other Trans People
Ever since I transitioned back in 1994, it seems like at least once a decade we go into this cycle where we have post-op transsexuals screaming the nonsense that pre-ops, crossdressers and everyone else in the trans rainbow are 'oppressing' them.

¿Cómo iremos a plantear la lucha por la Identidad de Género éste 2011? ¿Tenemos potestad para cuestionar el derecho a la identidad de l@s compañer@s trans? ¿Entendemos acaso lo que significa ser trans?. Creo que todavía tenemos mucho que aprender. En lo que respecta a diversidad sexual, la cosa no terminó el 15 de julio de 2010, tenemos que seguir educando para no darle tranco a ciertos sectores sociales, políticos y religiosos a dar un zarpazo contra los derechos adquiridos y permitirnos la posibilidad de seguir alcanzando nuevos derechos.
