The problem I have with this, is that when you refer to them (to somebody else) by their [newly assumed] gender... it is effectively lying. I know a male street artist—with a wife, who claims to have had 'the surgery', and he now truly believes that any person who does not refer to him as a woman is breaking the law. He is a mutilated man in a dress—but that was his choice to make; and he seems happy with it. We should all be so happy with our own permanent choices. I've seen far stranger things here, and this just doesn't register as significant; he can act however he wants... but I have managed to avoid ever actually referring to him as a woman, and I won't... if it ever comes down to it. _____ Aside: But when it comes to fighting [woman to 'woman'] ... on average, these guys can still hit like a man.
