I wish I could find some of the harassers and kick them in the teeth. Nobody deserves to be harassed, but it's especially galling to me when it happens to someone as accomplished as Frazelle.
(BTW, the headline paints Docker in a much better light than the article itself. Frazelle isn't exactly backing up their claim that they did everything they could to help her.)

I'm happy with my skin. I never wanted to be a boy, I just wanted to do all the things people tried to tell me were boy things to do. Climbing trees in a dress is..humiliating, so I learned early to wear clothing that suited the things I wanted to do.
When I was 2 1/2, my aunt tried to take me dress shopping for my uncle's wedding. I flatly refused. She laughs to this day impersonating my foot stomp and blunt I don't want to wear a dress, I want overalls!
I've never changed. I'm relatively androgynous in appearance at first glance, and get frequently called Sir at first contact with service industry folks. I've learned to let the unmeant insult slide right off a duck's back. But I get a lot of looks in women's bathrooms. I always try to catch the woman with my eyes so she can see me. It's the people I can't get to see me as me that I worry about.
Two weeks after Clinton signed the big crime bill in September 1994, he enacted the Riegle-Neal interstate banking bill, the first in a series of moves deregulating the financial industry. The juxtaposition between the two is kind of shocking, when you think about it: low-level drug users felt the full weight of state power at the same moment that bankers saw the shackles that bound them removed. The newspaper headline announcing the discovery of this amazing historical finding will have to come from my imagination – Back-to-Back 1994 Laws Freed Bankers And Imprisoned Poor, perhaps – but the historical pattern is worth noting nevertheless, since it persisted all throughout Clinton’s administration.
For one class of Americans, Clinton brought emancipation, a prayed-for deliverance from out of Glass–Steagall’s house of bondage. For another class of Americans, Clinton brought discipline: long prison stretches for drug users; perpetual insecurity for welfare mothers; and intimidation for blue-collar workers whose bosses Clinton thoughtfully armed with the North American Free Trade Agreement. As I have written elsewhere, some got the carrot, others got the stick.
