The federal government cannot possibly legislate a genetic change. No amount of drugs and/or surgery will change one's DNA. You want to live as another gender? Do so. I don't care. However, no protected class should exist for adults, except, perhaps, those who are under guardianship of another adult. Generally, no one adult's abuse and/or murder is greater than that of another. The only protected class should be minor children of all ages. When will child abuse, especially that resulting in a child's death, be prosecuted and penalized as harshly as comparable crime against any adult? That these innocents cannot vote is no reason to let their sadistic and/or murderous parents/guardians/caregivers/etc. off with a sentence less than any resulting when an adult is tortured and/or killed.
