Why ?
you hope she wins from just knowing the story from one side, through the media ? Maybe wait for the whole story before you give judgment, huh ?


Well it's not exactly uncommon for trans people to face discrimination (just look at the way the majority of posters have responded in this thread) so there's no reason to doubt the story. Perhaps I should just stop reading all news if it's all so inherently wrong.

WTF? I watched the video and all the references to "Ariel" and "her" but Andrew didn't even bother to shave or even look like a female.

What is this world coming to?

Total BS imo and another freeloader looking to profit from a business, like so many others.

Also, all the letters were to "Andrew" Would (s)he not applied to the job and registered as "Ariel" or is it because Ariel is not yet a legal name? If so, then h(er[is]) name isn't Ariel but Andrew. Ariel would be just a nickname.

So just because of that with no further evidence or not even hearign the other side of the story,, you're siding with the side you heard... hmm yeah.
