The Buzz: (CNN) -- Susan Stanton doesn't seem much different than any other woman: She struggles with her weight, she tries to balance her career with being a parent, and she worries about her teenage son who is just learning to drive.
But Stanton has been a woman for only about two years.


We all have substantial problems, at least now and again. For some of us, it's coming to grips with whom we love. For a few, it's coming to grips with being born into a body the doesn't fit who we are.

Gender problems might be one of the most difficult things to deal with in these United States. I watch even members of the gay community, where one might expect a little more understanding, fail miserably as they're presented with the one gender that's in a body for another.

This on-going marginalization leads most of us to consider suicide, Option C in this article, as an acceptable alternative at one time or another. Continually tell someone they're wrong, evil, useless, demon possessed, and watch the destructive behaviors grow.

Suicide, even if it's on the installment plan.

I'm glad this peep has mostly found her way. Hers might be the hardest row to hoe. Keep that in mind the next time you feel like whining over something.
