There's always a downside

Over in the UK, Pre-op transexuals favoured with twin IDs:
Many people in the UK don't want an ID card, but one group of people is getting stuck with two.

Last night, Baroness Scotland of Asthal let slip that transexuals awaiting surgery would be entitled to an ID card displaying their "birth gender" and a separate card with their "gender of designation".

So transexuals, already struggling with two wardrobes and varied shoe needs, will also have to fork out for two ID cards.
Just think of it as a fashion statement.
