We've been excluded... Again!

It seems to me that the transgendered community is under represented... When I read the news about who is being prosecuted for crimes against young people, it's always the usual suspects... Teachers, coaches, clergy, police, politicians.

Most of the time, it occurs to me that being transgendered wasn’t the ride I paid for or the one I wanted to take. You know how it is: I ordered the deluxe super-spa bath suite and got something, well, quite different.

But wait! What if I missed the point of the whole ordeal? I have to admit that being transgendered has been really… Read More

I've heard a lot of comments about how transgendered women are treated by religious organizations and people. So I rooted around to find out the basis for that treatment. And, it turns out to be a couple of passages from the Bible. So, it seems as though it's time to sort some things out.

 

As far as I can tell, some religious folk hang their hats on Deuteronomy 22:5 and Matthew 19:11-12 as the…

Important New Survey

Hi,

I just came across a new survey which was conducted by the Transgendered American Veterans Association (TAVA).

I have requested permission from TAVA to broadcast the survey, but haven't received any word back as yet. However, you can download a copy if you want.You can do a Google search to find them.

This survey looks to be a first class piece of primary research and is worthy of your time. The survey specifically deals with the experience of transgendered vets with…
