An article recently published on Huffington Post is by local Trans Activist, KSTEP Director and recent Tenth Voice guest, Stephanie Mott. She writes about transitioning living opposite a school and the choices she made about hiding or being public, especially given the tendency to confuse transgenderism with paedophilia.

I have to say, while I was touched by her article, I think she was being a bit hyper-aware of what anyone would think. Teachers have enough trouble just keeping the kids under control at recess, and I doubt the kids or anyone would notice anything at all, unless one dressed up as Dr. Frankenfurter. Nowadays, I think the situation would be so much less dicey.
