  5. Great post Janet, And a surprisingly informative piece of journalism from the BBC. I must admit I have never known mainstream media to inform their readers of some Trans History e.g 'Transsexualism' in Ancient Greece and Native American Tribes. thou of course they used their own words to define Trans folk. And of course what a pioneer and inspiration the elegant and wonderful Christian Jorgensen :)

    Barr Loses "Ally" Status

    I just Tweeted Ms Barr, @TheRealRoseanne. Why attack the Transgender community with your crass comments. Your free to have an opinion, but why be so vulgar!?

    Barr Loses "Ally" Status

    When a Twitter user accused Barr of Transphobia, she tweeted back - Women do not want your penises forced in their faces or in our private bathrooms. Respect that FACT.” -queerty.com She has DEFINITELY got an Attitude problem.

    We're Not Mad or Sick

    They create the dilemma, not us. It is up to them to fix it, Thou I guess we will need to campaign hard as they will not be doing it by there own volition :angry:
  13. That was a great speech, I have a lot of respect for her speaking out like this. She didn't have to, she could of kept her anonymity and stayed out of the spotlight. Thou she felt as need to speak up for us Trans folk which at the very least is commendable :)

    Barr Loses "Ally" Status

    She maybe just saying what she thinks people want to hear. Thou I think that was a gross error of judgment. I never really liked her, not because she is unrefined, appears uneducated, chews gum like a cow chewing cud. Just a feeling I had. She did get the pronoun right I'll give her that, but to be demeaning to Trans women in this way shows an ignorance that she would do well to remedy :angry:

    We're Not Mad or Sick

    Michael, that was an excellent article. As I have said before if we are classified as sick, society will see us as sick. Depathologization would not only a big step in public perception but also for the stigma that hangs around our necks :angry:
