Shorts win!

Much to nobody's surprise, when the Swedish Railway dropped their opposition to men wearing shorts, the skirts were put away. No trans issue here.

We are gathered here tonight to mourn those of us who have been taken from us by hatred, violence, and ignorance, but in a larger sense, we are here to celebrate their lives.

Trans in the US Military

World Pride, London, July 7th 2012

I marched! =) With banner (for an LGBT group I'm part of) held high! =D Many others marched too, including representatives of LGBT organizations from many countries. ^_^
The most amusing part occurred about 2/3 of the way along the marching route. An organized group of bible bashers were bitching through their sound systems and holding banners and generally preaching fire and brimstone on us LGBTers. Most of us glanced at them briefly as we passed, but no-one paid them any further heed. Talk about a gloriously futile gesture. :D

Marital Equity

Conservative Right get something correct, for once.

Suze Orman Is a economic expert from Chicago and one of her expertises is women and their money.

Suze Orman show today on CNBC News channel, had a long feature on the Money worries of gay and to a lesser extent "other" marriages. I think if you are going to have a life partner type of relationship or have one, you need to see this...

(Maybe some thing for USA only but good advice for most)

The Indy: "...let's forget gender altogether."

There's an interesting comment piece in today's Indy. It mainly deals with gender roles in the workplace (so arguing from the WISE / MICE point of view1), but could be applied more widely:

Instead of fighting for gender equality, let’s forget gender altogether

Is this the real skinny on the term transgender?

Cristan seems to have done a real research job in tracking the source of the word down. See what you think.

Was just looking at the local news for the week and found

That the Westro Baptist Church had been in town a few days ago. They picketed at the Easter High School on the East side of town (not to be confused with East Lansing though)

They were met with a wall of love and they showed up at 7 to 7:45. Who plans these pickets? What high schooler is really awake at 7 am? Sure they may be moving, but when I was in high school, I can't recall anything before 10 am.

Ex-gay? No way!

The post the other day about the Anglicans putting 'ex-gay' ads on the buses made me react when I saw this news item this morning.

Turns out that the, um, individual that wrote a key article supporting ex-gay therapy is now admitting he was wrong. Not in so many words, but it's a step back in the correct direction.

Funny how these so-called 'objective experts' find them selves tied up in knots trying to justify their own bigotry.
