Tune in to CNN's Larry King Live tomorrow where King will once again bravely step "inside the world of transgender people." You know, "men who go under the knife to become women." Despite this sensationalistic, reductionist promo copy, I'm willing to give Larry the benefit of the doubt. So tune in Friday, August 10 at 9pm ET.
On the CNN website, you can also email questions that you'd like Larry to address on this topic.

Maybe you can ask what's up with reducing trans people to objects of surgery switcheroos in that darn copy. Maybe you can urge Larry to talk about the overwhelming social and economic factors (that pesky employment discrimination, the disproportionately high level of hate violence, or the lack of legal protections) that oppress within the wacky "world of transgender people."
Now that’s something I’d like to see discussed on the nation’s most watched prime time news program!
