MonicaPz : (18 December 2014 - 06:17 PM) Happy birthday, Stephani!
AshMich1945 : (18 December 2014 - 10:57 AM) Hello...my name when I'm transformed, is Ashleigh Michelle James. I'm a lifelong cd/tg from sw Connecticut. I've been fascinated by female attire and femininity since I was very young. Now that I'm mature, I can enjoy all the benefits of being a woman. I hope to meet many more members from CT and share my experiences with them as well as possibly go out for shopping trips, coffee latches and brunch.

UsernameOpti... : (15 December 2014 - 09:30 PM) Duct tape, bailing wire, bubble gum and a good hammer will usually fix nearly anything!
Lori : (15 December 2014 - 08:43 PM) Sorry about the outage today. We had server problems but banging on it with a hammer seemed to work! ;)
CharityLynnC... : (15 December 2014 - 08:22 PM) what in the world cause this site to be down for a day...lol..tried to get on and got an sql server error..
jennifer38 : (15 December 2014 - 10:56 AM) I plan to hold another conference this Saturday at 3 PM Eastern.  For those who came to the last one, the number and meeting ID are the same.  Anybody who does not have the number and is interested, please message me, as I've been advised to not openly post the number and ID for fear of them falling into the hands of troublemakers.  Also, anytime I bring up religion and The Bible, it is not meant to intimidate or embarrass anyone.  I'm sorry if anyone feels put down, because I have no intentions of doing so.  In spite of my transgender feelings, I have a deep love for Christ, but I respect those who don't believe like I do.  My goal of these telephone chats is simply to create a telephone hang-out for us fellow trans on all levels of the spectrum, and for our allies.  I hope to see you all there.

MonicaPz : (12 December 2014 - 01:15 PM) Jen, it was great, and I can't wait!
jennifer38 : (12 December 2014 - 01:12 PM) I thank everybody who called into my telephone conference.  It was wonderful.  I feel good about talking to others and hearing their perspectives.  Lord willing, I will hold another one, soon.  The conference number and ID will always be the same.  I will let you all know when I plan to do this, again.  God bless you all.
JayPea25 : (12 December 2014 - 11:50 AM) Anyone in Baltimore!?
veronicabeta : (12 December 2014 - 12:16 AM) Dug the Vid Warren. T.Y.!
Bonnie : (11 December 2014 - 02:45 PM) Fun video, Warren, except for the ending.  The jumping while running hand in hand.  It is good to see a video like this though.  Thank you.
jennifer38 : (11 December 2014 - 11:41 AM) This is a reminder about my telephone conference, tomorrow afternoon at 3 EST.  Come out and enjoy yourself.  This is a general chat about our various transgender feelings and issues.  This is a great way to get to know one another better.  Details are in the calendar.  If you have any questions, please message me.  Hope to see you there, tomorrow.
EmmaSweet : (09 December 2014 - 10:13 PM) Cool, Warren! Good thing they had subtitles. My Japanese is pretty weak!
WarrenG : (09 December 2014 - 08:57 PM) I found this really interesting/adorable homosexual music video and thought I'd share it with you guys and girls ^_^ (i grabbed the one with english subtitles for you XD) https://www.youtube....h?v=xxyA26gJ22E
jennifer38 : (09 December 2014 - 11:08 AM) Here's the number and code for my telephone conference I plan for this Friday, now at 3 PM Eastern.  The number is (605) 562-0020.  The meeting ID is 201-909-465.  This will just be a general hang-out and chat about our transgender issues and feelings.  This will be another time I can be one of the girls, even though I cannot do that in everyday life.  We can just enjoy ourselves and get to know one another through good old-fashion talk.  Hope to see you all there.

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.

Actually Gennie . I quite agree with ya on this ! Still, I suspect the current administation thinks it's current re- election money should be spent on a beeter return ............

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
