  5. Two of my girlfriends and I went out to go dancing and let our hair fly on Saturday night. It was great, we arrived to the club and were welcomed with open arms. Guys were buying us drinks and we danced our asses off. When it was time to leave we had a 6 block hike in our 6 inch heels to the parking lot, but some young kids decided to harass us while walking to our safe zone. One of my girlfriends, who will remain nameless, was assaulted one time by a man who continuously called her a freak while she was walking alone to her car after work a few years back. Because of that terrible attack we walk in numbers — ALWAYS. When being harassed by these punks I took a photo of their license plate causing them to stop in the middle of the road threatening to run me over with the car. Here's where the story elevates; as they made the threat two deputies were coming out of a diner and heard the words spewing from the mouths of these thugs. It only took them seconds to react and the trio were taken into custody. The deputies said it didn't matter that we were CD/TG, we were people who needed help and that's what they do. I love the Emerald City. The moral of the story is simple: Walk in numbers and don't be afraid to ask for help.
  6. By Erica Elizabeth Ravenwood PUBLISHED: FRIDAY, AUGUST 12, 2016 AT 12:44 AM http://www.thedailynewsonline.com/article/20160812/BDN06/160819477?fb_action_ids=10205123839495234&fb_action_types=og.comments EDITOR: What I’m going to talk about right now is the need for school policy that better protect our children. In order to make my point I need to share with you my own rather horrific childhood. I started being bullied at 7 years old. Called gay slurs because for me being a girl equaled gay in the boys’ eyes and gay was deserving of being beaten. I know for a fact that at 7 years old I had no sexuality, but because I grew up prior to the Internet, the term “transgender” didn’t exist as it does now. So they missed out on beating me up for that reason. My first tooth lost was a tooth knocked out, and by fourth grade I had no more baby teeth. I never said a word to my parents about why. My parents loved me, but my dad was angry about the gay movement that started in 1969 and was hitting its stride in the ‘70s when I was going through school. How could I have told my parents that I’m a girl when girl equals gay and gay is deserving to be beaten? I keep it all a secret because I didn’t know what else to do. I was afraid to go to school. I was afraid to use the restroom during lunch or recess because on the couple of occasions I did, I was beaten up. Instead, I would time my asking in class so that the teacher might not tell me I couldn’t go, and I could use the restroom hoping no boy was in there. Or I faked illness so I could use the single-person restroom in the nurses office. On two occasions during elementary I had accidents because I couldn’t hold my bowel movement before I could get home, and had to deal with the ridicule the rest of the way by a group of kids. By 9 years old I was suicidal. Death seemed preferable to life and my first way of trying to die was to try to catch pneumonia because I heard it could kill you. I would wet my head after everyone had gone to sleep and stand outside in only my underwear in the winter. I never caught pneumonia. I caught bronchitis instead a few times, and for that I was grateful. At least it kept me from going to school. In fourth grade I had two extreme injuries. Both inflicted by someone else. By fourth grade all my permanent teeth were trying to come in because I had lost all my baby teeth by then. My two front teeth were permanent. My two front teeth now are both shoved up into my skull. My two front teeth are fake. I had to endure years of painful treatments in a dentist chair, but at that time I had to go to get the pavement cleaned painfully off my gums. I developed an extreme fear of the dentist. To me it only meant pain. The second incident was a concussion so bad it left a goose egg-size bump on my forehead between my eyes. My eyes swollen shut and blackened. The doctor told my mom that if I were hit there again in any way before my skull fully healed, I could have brain damage. I was grateful for that injury. It kept me out of school for almost the rest of the year. It was then my family started referring to me as “accident prone.” The policies that I’m proposing are to help keep children safe. Not just the transgender child, but any child that feels unsafe in the places where the teacher can’t see. The teacher can’t protect. This is where extreme bullying occurs. Where those who may stop it can’t see. Will we create a perfect world? No, but that isn’t the intention. It’s to do what is in our power to do to help keep all our children safe. I have some issues that will never be resolved due to how I was treated. I’ll have to endure certain things for the remainder of my life. My fate doesn’t and shouldn’t be the fate of children we can help now when we have it in our power to change certain things so easily. Let’s make this next school year a better school year for all our kids by pressing the school boards to be brave enough to place the children first and hopes for their re-election second. #transgender Erica Elizabeth Ravenwood Geneseo These are the policy details I'm proposing. Slightly but significantly different from the LGBT's current stance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kvctQnUgI0
  7. By Sebastien Malo NEW YORK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Up to 34,000 transgender people in the United States could face problems voting in next month's election because their ID cards do not match their gender, advocacy groups said, urging them to use a postal vote to avoid being turned away at the polls. Transgender rights have come under increasing scrutiny in the United States with rows over access to public bathrooms and healthcare dominating media coverage and political discourse in recent months. Thousands of transgender people could face obstacles voting in the Nov. 8 presidential election in states with stringent voter ID laws, according to a report by the Williams Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). "A transgender voter may show up at the poll with a valid ID, however if they have not been unable to update the gender marker or photo on that ID, a poll worker may be confused and refuse them a ballot," said Arli Christian, spokeswoman for the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE). Doubts about gender on an ID is not be a valid reason to deny a ballot, but it has led to transgender voters being turned away from polling stations in the past, campaigners said. "It's a shame that a trans person would have to put themselves at risk of scrutiny, harassment, discrimination to exercise something as basic as their right to vote," Christian told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. Thirty-four states have passed voter identification laws, according to the Williams Institute, with eight having strict versions requiring the voter show a government ID with photo. In a 2011 survey by the National Center for Transgender Equality and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, 40 percent of transgender respondents said they were harassed when they presented an ID that did not match their gender identity. Though a "civil rights issue", the problem voter ID laws represent for transgender people have yet to generate the kind of debate raised by other LGBT issues, said Kenneth Sherrill, a political science professor emeritus at Hunter College in New York City. The transgender vote represents only a "small fraction" of the U.S. electorate and does not have the potential to significantly alter the election's outcome, he said. Jillian Weiss, head of the New York City-based Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund, said absentee voting is "good advice" but "shouldn't have to be necessary". "Let's not forget that this is a workaround for the equal protection of the laws that people are otherwise entitled to," said Weiss, whose organization is looking for cases of transgender people being denied the right to vote. On Nov. 8, American voters will pick a new president as well as elect members of the U.S. Congress.

Before November 8 election results both candidates running for President I am sure they are heterosexuals straight forward people in promoting straight gender rights so until we get someone like Canada's PM Justin Tridue we will have to wait.

  18. Transgender Latin Americans face violence, bigotry Reuters AlertNet Transgender Latin Americans face violence, bigotry. A transgender sex worker looks waits for customers on a street in Tegucigalpa, Honduras... I'm not exactly sure why they had to use a transgender sex worker (as opposed to perhaps a transgender community volunteer) to illustrate their story. I suppose transgender people are so marginalized that the sex workers tend to become synonymous. That is a sad reality for many, even in more "civilized societies." But in any event, the statistics are alarming and unacceptable. I hope a focus on human rights will lead to a better life for our transgender brothers and sisters in these countries. ~ Lori
