Federal Marshalls Call Transgender Veteran "Shim"

Quick notes this morning.  Read this account from blogger and transgender activist Autumn Sandeen at Pam's House Blend.  It describes her processing by US Federal Marshalls who treated her with disrespect and in direct violation of their own policies for processing transgender men and women.  Autumn is a decorated military veteran who engaged in civil disobedience to protest Don't Ask, Don't Tell.  This is shameful conduct on the part of the arresting officials.
