This is really good. I had some of my faith in humanity restored by reading this article. It's great that they support him so much.

I don't see what the social stigma is so much around 'transgendered rights' or Transphobia as hating on Transgendered people is known, of course it can make some people feel slightly uncomfortable, but the reality is that if somebody is so upset with their assigned gender that they will consider and sometimes commit suicide, then if there is something that can be done to help, it should happen.

These fratboys appear to understand that, and crowdsourced money to help pay for their brothers operation which was rejected through insurance.

Thank you for posting this EV, what a wonderful story!
My tolerance for BS is limited, and I use up most of it IRL.

That's awesome. :)
If we ever travel thousands of light years to a planet inhabited by intelligent life, let's just make patterns in their crops and leave.

What an uplifting story.  I'm usually not that much of a fan of frats, but this is clearly a supportive community.  And the video is really worth seeing.
