There are other choices of government rule; dictatorship, corporate, religious, etc. Whether or not there is trust in your elected politician is another matter but if it improves overall life for one and all with respect to civil and human rights then the politician's motives are secondary.

While I don't believe for one minute that a federal politician can be counted on to care for a minority, there have been a few who have gone to bat for us.

I think it was in 2009 when Congress first did a hearing on the needs of transgender people. Trans rights is the civil rights issue of our time because we made it our issue...every one who refused to hide from a hostile world and assert that this is who we are.
