Editor, the Gauntlet,
[Re: "Check your gear," letter, Nov. 30, 2006]
As a U of C alumnus, I was quite appalled to read Ms. Bertolini's letter to the Gauntlet.
She is unreasonably dismissive of the all-too-real experiences of transgendered people who are in the midst of transition.
In my experience, transsexuals are the least confused about their gender and sexual identity. Their own identity may be confusing to others like Ms. Bertolini, but that's another story.
