MonicaPz : (17 February 2015 - 06:38 PM) To RSVP for the weekly phone chat, under "upcoming calendar events," click on "weekly phone chat" that is on the right of "community calendar."
Mattie20008 : (17 February 2015 - 12:27 PM) Haha, I was having coffee with my daughter and we noticed- we were wearing the same shoes : )
veronicabeta : (16 February 2015 - 05:11 PM) Happy Birthday spikysam, wherever you are! :)
veronicabeta : (16 February 2015 - 03:29 AM) OK UsernameOptional. Understood. have to learn to type better or proofread better, but that works for me ! :)
UsernameOpti... : (15 February 2015 - 04:46 PM) The shoutbox is just that - for making a shout out like for announcements, birthdays, bringing a thread to the attention of members, etc.  Posting things in the shoutbox leaves no opportunity for discussion.  And if those who happen to notice do go into a little chat, it can scroll off before anyone knew it even existed.  And unfortunately, the edit feature is kaputt whether your session is active or timed out.
veronicabeta : (15 February 2015 - 02:51 PM) Hey, LUV the shout box, but is anyone else having issues with the "edit" shout feature. I'm on my six core gaming system now, and when I tried to edit my last shout, after hitting the edit button in the edit dialogue box, it just timed out?
veronicabeta : (15 February 2015 - 02:48 PM) What? Disnosaurs are evil? Don' tell that to Godzilla! He doesn't take insults well. She might wake up and go all "Spanish Inquisition" on the Human race.
DanielleCaswell : (14 February 2015 - 11:46 PM) one thing i cant stand is stupid christians thinking that dinosaurs can cause a child to think bestially  and bite  someone. id love  to smack the woman who is leading this stupid crap... http://guff.com/chri...ids/20?ts_pid=2
veronicabeta : (14 February 2015 - 12:51 AM) Happy B-day michellesmithuk, SexyKikyo32 and jesseboo ! :)
DaniellaQE3 : (13 February 2015 - 09:50 PM) Looked up redneck to be sure I got it right.  Dictionary says that a redneck is "an uneducated white farm laborer, especially from the South." Good honest labor on a neck bowed to the sun while working the fields.  I've done that.  Course some of my kin are red all over so I guess that makes them rate lower than just a redneck.
DanielleCaswell : (13 February 2015 - 05:33 PM) https://www.youtube....h?v=9ja4Z41_8BI Incase anyone has NOT seen this.. it is great. If you are not in the deep south you can not imagine the pure stupidity that they come up with to back up hate. This man Jeremy Todd Addaway made the funniest video letting all the rednecks know "its ok the world did not end"
UsernameOpti... : (13 February 2015 - 05:05 PM) WTG, Jennifer =)

Denied: White House says ‘no’ to ENDA executive order


WASHINGTON — "The White House has categorically denied requests from LGBT advocates to issue an executive order protecting LGBT people against workplace discrimination at this time, according to individuals who took part in a White House meeting on Wednesday. The denial was corroborated by a senior administrative official..."

My biggest bugaboo is Solmonese. Back in 2007, ENDA had enough votes to pass but he, Barney Frank, and the Human Rights Commission threw us under the bus. That's why I don't listen to what Solmonese has to say.

Here in New York State, GENDA has been on the ballot since 2002. When it was on the same ballot as marriage equality. While marriage equality was passed (and I'm happy for that), GENDA was quietly forgotten. Once again, transgender folks were pushed to the margins. This particular issue touches a chord with me because I feel that many mainstream LGBT organizations are more interested in assimilation rather than struggling for equality. I could go on about this but that's another story for another day.

I followed the link to LGBTQ Nation, a community news magazine. From there, I followed two other stories. I intend to post this one in it's own thread. I hope we can keep a copy here on TGG. Moderators, please look into it. Thanks.

Do not lose hope.  It is my understanding that we continue to have protection under the law under sex discrimination.   For example I am now legally female.   If I am criticized for how I look or dress my understanding is that after first requesting the harassement to stop I may file a complaint as sexual harassment for sex discrimination, picking on what I look like.   Has anyone else heard this.  I read it from literature from Lambda Legal.   So guys where pink boys and ribbons all you want.   They can fire you for being transgender but not for looking transgender please help me with this one,  I want to make sure I understand this difference.   Where there are dress codes this would affect clothing and makeup, but if you follow the dress code of the female very closely, I would think you could present as long as is one or the other.  But you can't say that you are transgender or claim to identify with the opposite sex gender or claim gender identity issues, just that you wish to dress a certain way is personal preference.  Simply that you chose that dress code.   Ideas please.  There is a way around this.   As a transgender person I would chose the job without a dresscode and then dress what represents me.   These are ideas I am grasping from all of this, anyone want to add to this or clarify the alternatives for us.   That I am legally female may be a key factor in this case but I am not sure.

Look to changing the rulings about Transsexuals in the Medical world stop worring about Protections we already have.

Amie , I can understand the Befuddled sence within the cunundrum , I dont care myself , I goto the interview as myself not a made up phony like in the past , if they hire me great they already know what they are getting a capable woman who happens to like the company of woman, if they dont then ask why , and then move forward not back . often times it is an issue of socialisation and incorporation into such a setting HR can address this and make the transition into the work place easier for all involved , at times they simply need the information to understand , so give it to them . This is a crappy deal no doubt but it is a stepping stone we all find within our path.

Hugs and Love
