  1. Christine added a post in a topic God is my Strength   

    I am happy for you that God gave you the strength for that and I hope your dad is well.  I think, if one believes in God, then, no problem.  Pray and one feels His strength.  And if someone does not believe, then God gives the strength anyway.  So, one may not need to belong to a church; God is still there even if they don't acknowledge Him.

    ​Yeah, parts of the city are rough.  I stick to NW and the Dupont area (and Freddies in Crystal City) as best I can.

  4. Christine added a post in a topic Airport Security Tips For Transgender Travelers   

    Try and remember that most screeners  really are just trying to do their job, as hard as is to believe that.  And, those that encounter a Trans* traveler have probably never met one on (or off) the job, and really have no idea how to react...and this under the pressure of an active screening point, which means move 'em, move 'em, move 'em.  So while I agree that all travelers have a right to a dignified travel experience, and should immediately call for a supervisor if treated otherwise, keep in mind that the screener you find at the checkpoint just might want to get you through his or her station just as fast as you want to go through it.

    With apologies for making light:  I can assure the forums, and the fda, that I am quite disease free.  But thanks for asking.  Let me know if you need some blood or anything, I'm always here to help.

  8. Christine added a post in a topic Patrons Praise Gender-Neutral Bathroom   

    Well, I  suppose I won't get praise for this, but if the schools stuck to bathrooms and leave locker rooms to another day, I think they'd find it easier to navigate through this issue.  Also- what is wrong with a separate bathroom designated for trans kids?  I don't think that makes them 'lose their rights' or something.  Just a thought.

    Hiya!  It sounds like you are on your way, so here is quote for you to keep in mind:

  10. Christine added a post in a topic Debunking the Desistance Myth   

    Brynn is a good writer, and the study she writes of is of course pseudo-science gobbledy-gook...Unfortunately, "reports" like the one she writes of will be used repeatedly by the haters, just as the climate change denial reports similar in scientific strength to her cited work will be held up by congresspersons as fact.  Congrats to Brynn on a well-supported expose,' but I believe it won't make that much of a scratch in the real world.

    I've found that RELAXING when I walk helps a lot, especially in public and crowds (like at our DC Metro).

  12. Christine added a post in a topic US Marine found guilty of killing transgender Filipino   

    Great news!  Let's hope for a jail term spent there, instead of being transferred home.
    On a different note- I can't see the word, Olongapo, without an automatic smile...such memories of that wonderful place (at least, as it was in the mid 80s and the early 90's (Pinatubo really fucked that place six ways to Sunday. Nice to see they have turned it around...

  15. Christine added a post in a topic Petition Says, "Drop the T"   

    On second thought, an idea- let's start a petition to drop the LGB from our T universe.  After all, what have they really done for use?

  16. Christine added a post in a topic Everyone Transgender Is a Gay Man   

    I think this is a case of the agency still catching up with reality.  I think the wheels of federal justice, or sense, simply move more slowly that we'd like.  I know of no authoritative treatise that explains the gender identity - gender expression - sexuality - queer range of reality.  Maybe we should start with that...

    We had a beautiful service in DC at the MCC church.  The place was packed.  Lovely readings and service elements.  Very nice.

  18. Christine added a post in a topic Petition Says, "Drop the T"   

    Personally, I think the best way here is to ignore this ultimately meaningless "petition."  Just because they have it on change.org or something similar, it does not mean that the owner puts any value- I could start a petition tonight to change the LGBT flag colors to be orange, blue, and brown.  Doesn't mean it will garner any numbers (and a thousand or so signing the 'drop the t' isn't going to get anyone's attention.

  19. Christine added a post in a topic Religious Freedom Laws-My Thoughts   

    Let's note that the 'IGWT' thing was added our paper money in...'54 or maybe '56.  In other words, it was certainly not dumped on us by the founding fathers.
    On a different note, you might like to listen to XTC's "Dear God" for a different spin...here's the lyrics :
     
        "Dear God"
     
    , hope you got the letter, and...
    I pray you can make it better down here.
    I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer
    but all the people that you made in your image, see
    them starving on their feet 'cause they don't get
    enough to eat from God, I can't believe in you

    Dear God, sorry to disturb you, but... I feel that I should be heard
    loud and clear. We all need a big reduction in amount of tears
    and all the people that you made in your image, see them fighting
    in the street 'cause they can't make opinions meet about God,
    I can't believe in you

    Did you make disease, and the diamond blue? Did you make
    mankind after we made you? And the devil too!

    , don't know if you noticed, but... your name is on
    a lot of quotes in this book, and us crazy humans wrote it, you
    should take a look, and all the people that you made in your
    image still believing that junk is true. Well I know it ain't, and
    so do you, dear God, I can't believe in I don't believe in

    I won't believe in heaven and hell. No saints, no sinners, no
    devil as well. No pearly gates, no thorny crown. You're always
    letting us humans down. The wars you bring, the babes you
    drown. Those lost at sea and never found, and it's the same the
    whole world 'round. The hurt I see helps to compound that
    Father, Son and Holy Ghost is just somebody's unholy hoax,
    and if you're up there you'd perceive that my heart's here upon
    my sleeve. If there's one thing I don't believe in

    it's you....

  21. Christine added a post in a topic He? She? Ze? Colleges add gender-free pronouns, alter policy   

    Yeah,.....thats a bit too much yet.  We haven't even secured Trans* rights around the country, so I feel it is too soon to start trying to mainstream these (sorry, crazy) other pronouns.  It is too much all at once to throw at the public, at the congress who needs to pass several bills (and I hope ENDA includes us), and at the media, some of whom will take a report like Harvard's and make a circus sideshow.  I heard a right-wing pundit (read: idiot) talking (ridiculing) about our "LGBTXYZ" movement.  
    Battles aren't won by running at the enemy in many small, disconnected groups across the area; it takes a high-level, coordinated intelligence preparation of the battlefield first.  We need a trans-law strategy at the national level and silly things like this Harvard story push us off our mark.

  22. Christine added a post in a topic Why Is Iran Subsidizing Sex Reassignment Surgeries?   

    It is my understanding that if one is gay in Iran, they are offered GRS as a 'cure' for being gay.  It it legal to be a women, and being gay is seen as a (unacceptable) deviation.
