Great!  Just IMAGINE how much the medical technology of sex/gender transition will have advanced by the 23rd Century!  They will be operating all the way down to the chromosomal level . . .

But the important change is taking place right now in the 21st Century: a real TRANS actor being cast in Hollywood to play a TRANS character!
