Federal officials "shocked" at transgender violence and discrimination in Puerto Rico

Editor's Note: In Puerto Rico, the word transexual is used to refer to a person whose gender identity differs from their assigned sex at birth.  Transexual people may or may not decide to alter their bodies hormonally and/or surgically. Puerto Ricans use the word transgender to refer to people who adopt the dress or manner of the opposite sex but are not interested in transitioning their gender.  The terms used in this article reflect those usages.
