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!

I wondered when I read the article how accurate the report was.  They called the victim a "transgendered male," and referred to the victim as a male all throughout the article.  

(Headline):  Teen Charged with Beating Transgender Male

"...[Kelley] beat up a man because he is transgendered."

"The victim told police he went to meet Kelly..."

"...Kelley attacked him, punching him until..."


When I decided to watch the video, I then found out that the victim was actually a [trans]woman.

Way t' go, WREG!  Plain to see where you people stand when it comes to basic respect.  <_<

I just noticed today that Lori obviously also thought it was a [trans]man who had been beaten up, as she had placed a tag on this thread that reads "ftm."

You are right -- I didn't watch the video so I was confused by the article. Disgusting that the victim of this crime is further victimized by insensitive reporting. It's awful.
