I guess it depend on alot of diffrent matters.. some place migth see really accepting for some points and some accepting for others. - the samoan island, got the fafafini team wich is biological males who is accepted 100% as females even without homones or surgery. so I guess mtf would be pretty accepting there, but not sure about ftm. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fa'afafine- ---
It can be an enormous problem and you're going to find prejudice everywhere. Partly it depends on the individual concerned; is s/he a pre- or post-operative transsexual? In the Land of Oz a transsexual is required to live in the desired role for (I think) two years before being legally accepted in the new gender. The law doesn't require them to have gender-transformation surgery first. One woman I know (she used to ber a man) has been living as a "pre-operative transsexual" for almost 20 years and may never have the operation. She says that doing so wouldn't change the way she thinks or feels about herself. She is celibate by choice and lives alone. She works at the lower end of the economic scale and finds herself in factories and warehouses where, because of the relatively low education levels, she meets a lot of prejudice but uses humour to overcome it. She doesn't mind laughing at herself and manages to give as good as she gets. Her experience would indicate that if you're looking for zero-level prejudice you're going to be disappointed. If you've made that leap between the genders you've done something that some people will never be able to accept. It's part of the price you'll have to pay.
