  5. Well good evening!! This blog will serve different purposes for me, the main one is that it helps calm me down when I write, and I am able to express myself better thru writing. The transition is happening later in my life, I am 46, almost 47. I have been married for 21 years and have a son who is 15. And let me preface the spouse and son ARE NOT supporters. I am 13 months into my journey, and it has been anything but smooth. I had just gotten a job as a big time corporate chef and working at a college, finding acceptance would be easy. Well to a point. I worked for a global fortune 100 company that had a pretty good HRC score, but alas we are located in Wyoming. Yep. A beautiful state, but still not to accepting. Now understand that I am not a trans female who wants to stand out, I want to blend in. I don't want to draw attention to myself. I don't wear dresses or skirts, I am a jeans and slacks kinda girl. Some have asked why not wear stuff other that boring jeans and slacks. The answer is simple. Dresses don't fit my personality. But to me it is the outward appearance that caused me to derail. I will explain. See to me, getting on the hormones and wearing make up and such was so important, and yet that was my biggest problem. The outward look. Not an issue of passing or not passing ( I hate those terms), it was i worried so much about the outward, I didn't deal with the inward struggles. I was so worried about looking the part, i made a mess of the transition. No let me correct that...a huge mess of things. I regret how a lot of things went down, but while i can't change what was, i can sure make sure to fix the mistakes of the past. Well thats where i will leave it for now. I will write more tomorrow evening. Thanks lovlies!!!
  6. Michelangelo Signorile | April 07 2015 4:00 AM ET "Such stories of people turned away from businesses seem to be reported at least every week, and those are only the ones we know about, the ones in which the individuals come forward or the stories are reported in the media. Each time I have reported them on my radio program, not only do calls come in from gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender listeners, or their friends and family, telling similar stories, but I also hear from straight, gay-supportive people who express shock that such discrimination is happening and cannot believe that it is often legal and that there are no federal protections against it." -- advocate.com Book Excerpt: The 'Inappropriate Behavior' Double Standard _______________________________________________ While shop owners and businesses should have the right to refuse service, that refusal should be based on anything but bigotry and religion-fueled bigotry. Note Signorile's comment, "some callers have been honest enough to say, alarmingly, that they believe even laws banning racial discrimination are unconstitutional and that they should be able to turn away anyone they want. Comments like these underscore the vital need for this legislation."* That he has callers who actually believe it's unconstitutional that they cannot discriminate when it comes to race, is unfortunately why we must label some groups as "protected classes," and all the more reason why sexual orientation and gender identity need to be added to that list of protected classes. It's easy to say, "I'll just take my business elsewhere," but if everyone who was treated badly or was refused service because of what they are, eventually there would be people once again being forced to live without things they need, and forced into a less than favourable existence. And as far as that goes, there are TGLB (and especially the T) people living less than favourable lives right now. Some of these laws that have been enacted, those that are being created, and the lack of protections, do not affect just us - such discriminatory laws can eventually unravel the previous advancements of various groups, and affect a large variety of people. Man has not evolved to the point where all people actually are equal and treated thusly without grudge - the proof is that there are still human beings who must be protected by law, and others for whom laws must remain in place. -Michael *I underlined the word "anyone" to emphasis that the denial of service by those who feel they should be able to do so, could extend, literally, to anyone. Where's the incentive for someone who feels they should have the right to discriminate against any group, to stop with just one group of people?

    a TS Widow in Texas

    i happened to turn to ABC-TV tonite just in time to catch the news program 20/20's segment about a widow who's in a legal battle with her late husband's family. the widow is a transwoman who says he knew it from day one but loved her unconditionally. his family (and their lawyer) says he didn't have a clue and was devistated when he found out. Nikki Araguz will probably lose all contact with her late husband's children, she'll probably lose any benefits that would have gone to a wife because as far as TX is concerned... she is a male, which in the eyes of TX law...made her marriage a same-sex marriage - illegal in TX. and so her marriage is considered null and void, which means she's not a widow and therefore entitled to nothing. "This story just seems to represent such a tragedy for everyone involved. Unfortunately, this situation highlights many injustices faced by transgendered families in this country." -Masen Davis, executive director, Transgender Law Center, San Francisco the video is not online yet, but you can read the story and catch a vid clip or two... "Transgender Widow May Lose Her Deceased Husband's Benefits..."

  14. TV series tells gay teens 'It Gets Better' New York Daily News It focuses on two teens as they struggle with coming out, a declaration neither their parents nor friends will rush to embrace, and one transgendered post-teen who has already been through the toughest parts. “It Gets Better” is a prelude to “Savage U .. The series titled It Gets Better (set to air on MTV) acknowledges that life can be pretty tough for gay and transgender students. The premise is that it gets better after high school. That's probably true for a lot of us actually. School students can be pretty cruel no matter what your difference is. There's this compelling need to force everyone to fit the norm, because that's what they've learned at home. So the ostracism and taunting can be quite difficult for anyone who is perceived as different. It's a difficult, lonely time for those who can't repress their true identity. ~ Lori
