UsernameOpti... : (12 July 2014 - 08:22 PM) Why does the media continue to mistakenly identify anti-TGBL haters as, "pundits?"  Doesn't calling a blithering bigot a "pundit," qualify as oxymoronic?

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.
