"It's a genetic disorder that happens in utero," says Tur. "You're born with a female or feminized brain ... You think you're a woman, but you're [biologically] a man."

She says she's only been on the hormones for 35 days but is already changing.

So, imagine you show up for an already-difficult family court hearing, get into an argument with an official and get arrested in front of your crying two-year-old.

Then imagine the arrest happened because you complained that a court marshal brought you into a side room, felt you up and asked you to lift up your shirt.

Several employees and managers of Clark County Family Court in Las Vegas are under investigation after the incident, which was all caught on video.

In it, court marshal Ron Fox inexplicably arrests mom Monica Contreras after she dared to complain to the judge that Fox had touched her inappropriately.

Stuart Edge, a YouTube do-gooder and part-time prankster, sought out people in need for his latest round of web trickery, and the results are heartwarming.

With $1,000 out of his own savings, he made the days of 10 different homeless people, transforming $1 bills into $100s before their very eyes, and hands.

Take a look at the impressive, and inspiring magic display below:

Edge says he went through a lengthy process to ensure that he wouldn't get hosed, and was actually giving money to people who would use it honorably.

"I wanted to make sure if I was giving money away," said the YouTube illusionist, "That it was actually being given to people who could use the money."

Job well done, Stuart.

Seacat, 37, of Kingman, Kan., was convicted of first-degree murder, aggravated arson and two counts of aggravated endangering a child in the 2011 act.

Whoever said the customer is always right never met Taylor Chapman.

In a viral video, the 27-year-old Florida woman, who has worked as a video spokesperson for a restaurant and an auto repair shop, goes OFF on Dunkin' Donuts.

For unexplained reasons, Chapman walked into the DD on Saturday to record herself complaining about not being provided a receipt for a prior purchase.

“This is all being under video surveillance,” she absurdly warned one employee (who was absurdly polite), referring to her iPhone, which kept recording for 8:09.

Since she allegedly was not given a receipt, the Broward County resident cited a company policy that supposedly guaranteed her free food as a result.
