Man, that is such bullshit. I really hope, especially sometime in my lifetime, that people will wake up and realize that we are all human beings struggling to find happiness in this world and that it would be easier to find if we all treated each other with respect.
I think there is an important aspect to this story that is being overlooked. The Trans (Or Hijra) community asked for this designation. It wasn't placed on them by the government.

I would assume that this can be used to lobby the government for access to social service programs or to give an indication as to the how large the population is and where they are located. This was targeted job training, STD education and other programs can be applied where most useful.

the important thing is the community thinks this is a good move and a step forward.
