Ansteorra has handled transsexuals before and just as we believe that
blond blue eyed people are Japanese we take the statement someone is another
sex as a matter of courtesy. We do better if the clothing and behavior is

I read people upset over bringing a 'mundane' issue into their Dream, while

Ask yourself if you would accept a person who played a male persona
convincingly and well, fighting for a person who played a female persona
convincingly and well, regardless of what lay under their clothes.
If the answer is no, then YOU are either bringing in the mundane world, in
the form of those IDs, or advocating an intrusive physical exam for each

If the answer is yes, then I ask why pretending to be something other than
what they in fact are would make it acceptable to you. Is the illusion
really that important?
And either way, ask yourself how sure you are that you haven't already done
so. Because, odds are, you have. Or people in another kingdom have.
And that leaves aside the issue of whether you want to sort by genetics, or
by plumbing-at-birth, or by current plumbing, or by self-identification.
Because every one of those sorts people differently than the others. People
-- real, normal, useful, worthwhile people -- that would get an M under one
set of rules would get an F under another. That's a fact of the world we
live in. BOTH worlds we live in.
