DON'T FORGET THE KIDS
I enjoyed Gunner Scott's fantastic article and picture (see "State of the Union," the Queer Issue, May 25). For our transgender youth, treatment in schools can range from enthusiastic support to outright prejudice and discrimination. More and more parents are supporting their transgender children, and so are their pediatricians and endocrinologists, when needed. But access to good medical care for some can be nonexistent. Family members embrace more often than in the recent past. I suggest everyone who cares about the humanity and human rights of the transgender children and adults in your community, please support organizations who work hard to secure a better life for them, such as Trans Youth Equality Foundation (transyouthequality.org), of which I am director.
THE HYPOCRISY OF LIBERALS
Referring to Mitt Romney as a "white-collar psychopath" couldn't be more wrong or hypocritical (see "Bankers and Bullies," editorial, May 18). He's an honorable and successful man, and was a good governor in my opinion. He will make a fine president, and one far better than the phony incompetent that currently occupies the White House.
The hypocrisy of liberals never ceases to amaze.
