THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Trans woman Elizabeth Tremblay, who was arrested last September for deserting the Marines 31 years ago, was given an honorable discharge from the Marine Corps. Tremblay was stationed at Twentynine Palms at the time she left, and following her arrest, she was awaiting for news if she was going to face a prison term. It was reported that she changed her gender about 15 years ago.

An unnamed undergrad student at Salem College in North Carolina plans to have sex reassignment surgery in February and wants the all women’s college to allow her to remain a student afterwards. Although there are a few male students, only women are allowed to live on campus.
The college is considering adopting a trans policy to allow transgender students, however some alumni are afraid this will eventually lead to a co-ed college. The college say that won’t happen, but others don’t trust the college administrators.
The college isn’t naming the student for privacy reasons.
These are two potentially very controversial issues that may draw polarizing viewpoints.
