I am sharing this article here because it is a form of media. The author was born female but now identifies as male. I felt that he was very balanced and even compassionate towards his LDS peers that he described.

I also felt it was interesting that a common response was that it would not be safe for him to live in male student housing. Unfortunately, that may be true - like it wasn't exactly safe for the black kids that crossed the line for school desegregation. More than that, I wonder what it says about us that we fear that the best and brightest of our young people might beat up someone who is different in this way.
