    Is knowing a transsexual actually a common thing in larger cities?

    I can't. This is important.

    I'm inclined to say yes, if that city is LA.

    I've met transsexuals in some of my classes, as classmates, as speakers for my classes, and as a professor. I've also had a co-worker who is a transsexual. All in LA. Granted, you'd find just about anything in LA.

    I, too, have never met one. Estimates on the prevalence of transsexuals varies amongst cited sources from 1:1500 to 1:100000. Most place the figures at 1:10000 sexually reassigned males and 1:30000 sexually reassigned females.

    Sure. I don't CARE if someone is transgendered, transsexual, in drag, sex-changed, metrosexual, homosexual, bisexual, straight, polygamist, or if they get all weird with barnyard animals.

    So long as all humans involved are consenting adults, who gives a damn? This is America, you have the GOD-GIVEN RIGHT to get your monkey on in whatever strange and depraved manner you see fit.

    Having someone tell me they're really a guy under those boobs, or that they are gay, or whatever, is like telling me they're left handed. I honestly couldn't care less. I see some sick **** at work every day, so I tend to not give a damn about the harmless stuff.

    There are hundreds in my city.
    I suppose they cluster in certain places: New Orleans, Austin, Berkeley, San Francisco... probably New York, Chicago, LA.
