>> as far as the hormone therapy, yes. i'm hoping fort leavenworth would do the right thing and provide that. if fort leavenworth does not, then i am going to do everything in my power to make sure that they are forced to do so.

>> is the ultimate goal for her/him to be in a female population, a female prison?
