Remember when tranny problems were something you addressed at the Aamco shop ?
Suddenly a whole community of people called transgender are in the news regularly in the context of civil rights and sensitivities most people never worried about.
Bathroom laws down south or an "androgynous" person sunbathing topless in Troy, NY, it's all in the news.
At Russell Sage College, students got topless yesterday to protest police treatment of a topless person sunbathing who refused to don a shirt when police demanded it.
Transgender issues were never something society or its political leadership had to pay attention to, but now such matters can rise up and cause a firestorm as has happened in NC where corporate protests of a gender ID law are causing political and financial issues.
A generation ago, poltical leadership never had to worry about who goes into which bathroom.
