         On the street acceptance and support are pretty much unconditional. If a man were to show up in Peace Park wearing women's clothing, I don't think anybody would even mention it. Well, maybe he would get some friendly ribbing, but he would not be ostracized.
         There are exceptions to this rule. You know the little stickers that police give to kids to show them that the police are their friends? The ones that say "Kid Cop" on them? One day I went to State Street wearing a baseball cap with one of those stickers attached to it. Big mistake. Nobody would even talk to me.
        I removed the sticker.
