UsernameOpti... : (02 May 2015 - 03:42 PM) I can deal with losing a few days content.  But not being able to sign on is like finding out a 1:30 in the morning that you've run outta smokes, and it's storming, and you have a flat tire, and the last taxi company went outta biz the day before.   :lol:   Is that sad sounding, or what!?
UsernameOpti... : (02 May 2015 - 03:39 PM) If you kammer your keyboard into a tillion purses... you will have nothing to blame for typos.  I always blame the keyboard.  That's my story... and I stick to it.

veronicabeta : (02 May 2015 - 02:31 PM) and that would be "Know the heartache of" like I know the heartache of being keyboard challenged.!

Lori : (02 May 2015 - 02:01 PM) First install of the software did not work so we had to restore. Unfortunately, we lost a couple days content in the process. Sorry for the problems. We will get it worked out and will get the system updated shortly.
EmmaSweet : (02 May 2015 - 12:43 PM) Lori, your PM mailbox is full.  I just checked my PM box and am missing at least one PM I'd sent to a member. Perhaps the backup was a bit "out of date"?
Lori : (02 May 2015 - 12:26 PM) Sorry for the forum problems. We had to restore from a backup and will be making another run at the software update soon.

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.

What the , We have Rights and Protections under the Laws , they are for Males , Females and Gays , Ok correct me if I am wrong her But I am Female , and I am A lesbian , Uh yeah Two out of three aint bad ..... 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
