Transgender challenges

An interesting, though short article today in the Windsor Star out of Ontario.

Transgender challenges: IT specialist Brad Sensabaugh can't help but wonder how some of his colleagues at the TD Bank Group in London, Ont., will react when the story of his private life hits the media spotlight.

That he is anything more than the bright, tech-savvy 33-year-old man they've come to know and respect since he joined the bank has likely never crossed their minds.

The article is generally favorable for trans people, but also broaches the limits of tolerance as it discusses the case of a transsexual man who is transitioning while working at a womens' domestic violence shelter, which is reminiscent of the Nixon case that occurred in Canada a while back.
