Chaz Bono Goes on Dancing With the Stars and Reps Transgendered People

Blind nationalism and religious zealotry are complete jokes. Get your head out of your ass, small-minded simpletons! What does it matter what someone’s gender preference is? Why is it any of your business? There are more pressing issues you can commit to. Like worrying about the end of the world in 2012. I can only hope that  this “end of the world” signifies an end to this increasing ignorant societal structure. Only then can we move on from pointing fingers and dirt slinging at people who are just trying to live their lives in peace. The gender and sexuality binary needs to be transformed!

Argentina Gay Marriage Law: First Country In Latin America To Approve Same Sex Marriage

The world is starting to change… A pity that the U.S. is behind everyone else, and not leading the way to a free society for all, regardless of sexuality, gender, ethnicity, class, and any other category that is constantly stigmatized.

San Francisco DMV Settles Civil Rights Lawsuit with Transgender Woman

Sometimes the law IS on the side of the right person. Gender, sexuality, ethnicity have nothing to do with a person’s worth or right to live in peace. We all should be able to live without fear of retribution for being who we are. Just because you don’t understand where someone is coming from, or who they are, doesn’t mean you can’t accept them. Stop trying to categorize, stigmatize, and brutalize. What people do to their own bodies is no one’s business, especially if it helps them be happy. As we all know, happiness is so hard to find. It is not an easy choice for transfolk to make to change their gender. Gender and sexuality are not dichotomous! 

APA Kind of Changes Being Trans-Idenified, But Not Really.

Transvestic fetishism – children, causes, DSM, therapy, person, people, women, health

This is absolutely disgusting the APA is going to perpetuate bias against trans indentified and cross-dressers. What is the problem with people just being who they are, and not stigmatizing them because you can’t wrap them up in a little box with a bow on top? It is no one’s business, nor place to judge something that they obviously don’t understand. The APA is classifying being trans as a paraphilia in the same class as child molesters. What kind of nonsense is that? The country is in turmoil, and if you know anything about social theory, social institutions are about to crack down on freedom of expression, especially sexuality. It is a historic conundrum with the same lame jingle.

If you have been possibly exposed to an STI/D, this is a site that you can both look up information, and send an anonymous ecard telling someone that they have been exposed to an STI/D. Great resource for sex workers, and the sexually active.
