Washington, DC, USA. An example of the most self serving egomanaical act in recent history: Autumn Sandeen joined others who chained themselves to the White House fence protesting Don't Ask, Don't Tell US military policies.
Pam's House Blend went nuts with Sandeen articles including one about how this was a completely selfless act of support and personal sacrifice for gay and lesbian service members and the repeal of DADT that had nothing to do with trans anything. [N1]
The truth is now emerging.
Once again this was apparently a "suck the air out of the LGB room" tranny attention power grab as suddenly all the new articles are trans specific and extremely light on the actual gay and lesbian content. Now we have, right on cue, "How I was abused when I was arrested" article on the front page of Pam's. [N2]
In this article Sandeen reveals he was initially given a female arrest bracelet but told, by his own account, no fewer than four or five people processing him "I have a penis and balls" and then is surprised when the identification is changed to male and he is taken from the female queue and placed in the male one!
That, after insisting on making a point of telling everyone he is physically male, he is insulted to the quick that he was then treated as such because he was wearing a female naval uniform and we all know that clothes are what makes women women, right?
There is the total transgender divorce from reality here with the implied belief that anyone who claims to be female must be treated as such regardless of their present and functioning wedding tackle. That anything less is transphobia and evil. That their opinion on this trumps the understanding of 99% of the world that women don't have penises.
Sandeen also makes a point of mentioning he is on 100% disability from the armed forces, but neglects to mention he received no wounds or injuries in service, that the disability is 100% mental. Not surprising is it? Lt. Daniel Choi must be furious at this co-opting. [N3] Sandeen apparently even donated his high heels worn during his ordeal as "historic artifacts" to a LGBt group.
Previous to this Sandeen was best known for wishing to cause a deliberate "bathroom" incident at the political conventions during the last election and his youtube video demonstrating and promoting a device to allow women to pee standing ... when he has no problem doing so himself without any such aid.
Women of history should be thankful that at least none of the photos of Sandeen show a tented skirt. Tell me again why transvestic fetishism needs to be removed from the DSM.

[N3] Lt. Daniel "Dan" Choi (b. 1981), an infantry officer in the United States Army, served in combat in the Iraq war during 2006-2007. Following his coming out on the The Rachel Maddow Show (March 2009), Choi has publicly challenged the policy of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, preventing open service by gay, lesbian, and bisexual members of the armed forces.
