Dawn13 : (16 October 2014 - 08:17 PM) Again Thanks Monica - I have a new FB account and a new e-mail where I can be free.
Dawn13 : (16 October 2014 - 05:41 PM) Thanks - Monica
MonicaPz : (16 October 2014 - 04:03 PM) The safest way to set up two FB accounts is to have two e-mail addresses (one Dawn, the other your male name), two snail mail addresses (Dawn would have a P.O. Box, your male self, street address, etc.  Keep ALL information TOTALLY DIFFERENT between the two FB accounts.
Dawn13 : (16 October 2014 - 07:14 AM) Can anyone direct me to a good set of info on how to set up a second FB account using Dawn as my site name.  Regretfully, I still have to live two lives and do not wish to have FB join the two of them.  Maybe this is impossible.
Dawn13 : (16 October 2014 - 05:59 AM) Please send me mail - plenty of room in my mailbox now!
Dawn13 : (16 October 2014 - 04:44 AM) Now it is my mailbox that is full - Will clear ASAP!
Dawn13 : (15 October 2014 - 06:21 PM) Hello msaleemb

Nice to see the UK govenment is actually wanting to know about what needs to be done to help the trans community.

Never trust anyone who's more excited about success than about doing the thing they want to be successful at.

Caroline - That's wonderful!  What a show of basic human compassion by the government!  Unfortunately, there's no way anything like that would happen here in the US.  I could maybe see a study to determine how the US government could better serve the rich, but definitely not anyone being oppressed.
Wouldn't the sentence "I want to put a hyphen between the words Rock and And and And and Roll in my 'Rock And Roll' sign," have been clearer if quotation marks had been placed before Rock and between Rock and and and and and And and And and and and and and And and And and and and and and Roll, as well as after Roll?

i agree, maya... i don't see anything like this happening in the US...least ways not in my lifetime.

places like the UK appear to continue to strive towards improving things for TG/TS people. of course in my opinion... the UK and [parts of?] Canada were already ahead of the US in that at least their health care systems work with the gender conflicted.

here, it appears that the majority of companies who's health benefits do not exclude TG/TS treatment are some of the larger companies concerned with maintaining high equality rankings in the business world - more concerned with how they "look" rather than any ethical reasons or compassion for their TG/TS employees.

Excellent!  I am assuming only UK residents can complete the survey?  I also wonder who would be taking the lead on getting this information out to the transgender community in the UK.
