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!

Leaders of any movement are usually treated harshly or more harsh than the others.  Not sure what 'mistreatment' means in this instance.  Hopefully, the lawyers will be able to keep it civil.  I think that transgender people offend become the centre of major issues like this because their life can't be any worse than it is now.  They don't fear punishment because their whole life seems a punishment and so they get involved in order to make life better for themselves and the rest of us who live similar lives.

Bonnie, many transgender people who have been arrested have been humiliated, called names, propositioned for sex, beaten and other vile acts. It was a fear of mine when I went down there. I'm in New York.  One thing I have vowed is that I will NOT be humiliated by anyone.
