Anonymous to Release All Steubenville "Rape Squad" Info and Child Porno Found In emails

Anonymous Threatens To Release All On Steubenville's Alleged Football Rape Squad If No Apology is Given to Victim by 1/1/2013.

We wouldn't have known there was a rape had it not been for one courageous blogger investigating the crime in spite of a lawsuit to shut her up. She knew it was being ignored by local law enforcement.

Video released January 3rd 2013 by KnightSec shows young men, one wearing a Steubenville tshirt, joking and laughing about the rape of this minor girl.

Anonymous sub-group KnightSec, which has released a preliminary dox outing the identities of other students at Big Red High School who they say dubbed themselves the "rape crew" but are being protected by the teachers and parents in the small town. More people and info will be exposed if those involved don't publicly apologize in the next few days:

KightSec Pastebin:
Greetings Citizens of the world, We are anonymous, We are knightsecc. Around mid-August 2012 a party took place in a small town in Ohio known as Steubenville. At this party are a list of men named in the prelimenary dox below who took part in the kidnapping and rape of a 15 year old girl. This video is to document the proof for the masses. The town of steubenville has been good at keeping this quiet and their star football team protected. Their school website shows how high the football team is held in regards to education with no links to academics what-so-ever. Even the founder of the school website Man o War offers his opinion here, "enough with the hyperbole, how can she be "scarred for life" if she supposedly can't remember anything?" On this fateful night a life was changed forever as a group of the football players of Big Red High School, dubbed themselves "rape crew" and began taking advantage of an underage girl. The girl was sexually assaulted, molested, raped, and drug unconcious from party to party. This is a warning shot to the school faculty, the parents of those involved, and those involved especially. A preliminary dox is being released on some of those involved, while a full size dox of everyone involved including names, social security numbers, addresses, relatives, and phone numbers is being compiled as you watch this video on every single member of the football team, those involved, the coaches, the principle, and more. This dox will be released unless all accused parties come forward by new years day and issue a public apology to the girl and her family. Make no mistake, all you need is a google search engine to realize we are serious in what we do. You can hide no longer, you have attracted the attention of the hive. We will not sit idely by and watch a group of young men who turn to rape as a game or sport get the pass because of athletic ability and small town luck. You now have the world looking directly at you.

Justice For January! Kill a Trans Woman & Get Bail? Friends Say NO!

Charles Jameson Neel charged with killing Transgender woman January Marie Lapuz may get bail before his trial. Friends of January Marie Lapuz Say NO!

UPDATE: I have searched the web and have not been able to verify this but one of the rally attendees said bail was denied.

Transgender woman January Marie Lapuz from Santiago, Isabela Philippines immigrated to Vancouver, British Columbia to escape what has become known as a very transphobic country only to be murdered Sept. 29 at the age of 26.

Bail in Canada can be denied if "detention is necessary for the protection or safety of the public. This includes whether there is a substantial likelihood the accused will commit a further offence or interfere with the administration of justice.

This precisely what frightens the BC trans community. The crime was violent and resulted in the death of January. This was a real woman, live flesh and blood with hopes, dreams and passions as January's Facebook page reveals. Does her murder not equate to that of a cisgender woman?

Persons charged with a criminal offence in Canada have a constitutional right to reasonable bail unless there is some compelling reason to deny it. These reasons can be related to the accused's likelihood to skip bail, or to public danger resulting from the accused being at large. In stark contrast to many other jurisdictions granting a constitutional right to bail, in Canada the accused may even be denied bail because the public confidence in the administration of justice may be disturbed by letting the individual, still legally innocent, go free pending the completion of the trial or passing of sentence (Criminal Code, s. 515 (10)(c)). :Wiki Bail Canada

The Justice for January protest is before this alleged murderers bail hearing is scheduled so if you are in BC you will have a opportunity to demand equality and justice for January.

India: Rape Victim Dies, Government 'waiting on reaction' To Act

As the world mourns the death of the young woman brutally assaulted, raped and thrown from a moving bus transgender people worldwide wonder. How will this affect trans people in India? Will the government need a riot to punish the perpetrators? And what about the social climate that not only allows this to happen but punishes the victims as well?

My hope is that this will help awaken India to the root causes that allow a society to ignore rape. India's misogynisticpatriarchal and transphobic society must change. Respect for woman isn't optional, it's necessary if India is serious about stopping this from reoccurring.

The Indian gang rape victim whose assault in New Delhi triggered nationwide protests died of her injuries on Saturday in a Singapore hospital, potentially threatening fresh protests in India where her case is a rallying point for women's rights. The 23-year-old medical student, severely beaten, raped and thrown out of a moving bus in New Delhi two weeks ago, had been flown to Singapore in a critical condition by the Indian government on Thursday for specialist treatment. Al Jazeera's Divya Gopalan reports on the latest from New Delhi.


Did M16 Cross Dressing Spy Gareth Williams Die Of Employer Harassment?

Some things seem too embarrassing to admit. Trans people living authentically will attest that the internal battles we wage with ourselves are multiplied in intensity by social stigmatization.

The pressure to keep our true selves secret comes from many places and if our employer adds to that sentiment it can seem to be too much to deal with.

In 2010 the "MI6 codebreaker Gareth Williams was found naked, locked into a Red North Face sports bag. Most speculated at the time it was a hit.

Most media focus is on his  "pictures of drag queens on his computer and had £20,000-worth of designer women's clothes in his flat along with women’s shoes and wigs".

"He browsed self-bondage websites and sites about claustrophilia - the love of enclosure - on his computers and phone and was looking at fetish websites days before his death."
Friends and family were upset at speculation that Mr Williams may have been gay and speculated that "some agency specialising in the dark arts" was behind his killing.

I wish the mainstream media would stop sensationalizing and ask the question, did Gareth Williams commit suicide to escape the pressures his employer would have undoubtedly brought to bear?

Was this a murder to keep Gareth Williams silent or a suicide?


Kuwait: 16 Woman Await Trial for Being Transgender

قانون صدر في الكويت سنة 2007
يجرّم كل من تشبه أو لبس لباس الجنس الآخر بالسجن سنه وغرامه 1000 KD
بالإضافة إلى الاعتداءات والتحرشات الجنسية التي يتعرض لها هؤلاء المساجين والتعسف بالاحكام

"2007 Law issued in Kuwait in criminalizes both resemble or wearing clothing of the opposite sex year in prison and a fine of 1000 KD.
In addition to assault and sexual harassment suffered by these prisoners and abuse verdicts."

They hunt us down for fun. Imagine yourself on the way to the market and blue lights suddenly pulsate behind you. Pulling over you your heart stops as the police quickly open your door and throw you against your car.

I haven't done anything wrong you shout as a fist smashes into you. You are being assaulted, imprisoned for the crime of being transgender in Kuwait. But the worst is yet to come. Rape. Torture. Being sold into slavery.

16 people are being held in Kuwait jails some for nothing more than having soft skin or a feminine voice. Most of the detainees have been arrested for ‘Imitating the Opposite Sex’, a ambiguous law which gives Orwellian power of arrest to law enforcement explaining why some of the detainees claims that that they were  arrested while dressed as a man and latter forced to put on women's clothing.

This is the country that we "liberated" with American lives?

Why Wait He's Here A Christmas Message

Good Morning lovely family.

It's Christmas eve and for the first time in my life I will actually celebrate the Christ child's birthday.

It's been a rough rocky road to get 'here' and although this is not by any means my final 'destination' it beats the hell out of were I was at this time before.

And I have you to thank. I cherish every visit to this humble blog. You lift us up when you come here, raising our voices for equal treatment as humans. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

But none of this would have been possible for me if not for the Christ. I see her looking at me now, smiling admonishing me for saying hell in a post about her. She's there in our lives if only we take the time to witness her miracles. Sadly, many don't and it amazes me that they don't see what I do.

They are the ones who we know so well, hate blinders in placed.

If you are black, yellow, green white, cisgender or trans, tall, thin, man, gay, woman or gender queer there's one thing we know. God loves you. Jesus Loves You. The holy spirit surrounds you.

I love you my transgender family. Merry Christmas.

RadFem's declare war on Trans Inclusive Gay Org's And Apparently The US Government

From the hate group Radfems who registered the planetransgender.com domain name  to misdirect innocent concerned people to fill them with there brand of anti trans rhetoric.

The infamous lawyer Radfem Cathy Brennan alias 'bugbrennan' known for unrepentantly maliciously outing of a UK trans teen posted on the Radfem hub announcing her newest depraved project called the "Gender Identity Watch".

According to the sites description it  is "a new blog devoted to tracking legislation and case law that attempts to codify “gender identity” into law and to override protections based on sex. Gender Identity Watch monitors organizations that push gender identity and thus engage in the erasure of female reality, including:"

Brennan's list of groups Radfems now oppose and why...

National Gay and Lesbian Task Force: “Transgender people and issues are core to our work at the Task Force.”

Human Rights Campaign: “HRC works to educate the public on issues that transgender people face, from widespread discrimination and hate violence, to the complex process of getting appropriate identity documents, to finding culturally competent healthcare providers, and family and parenting issues, and to advocate for their full inclusion and equality.”

National Center for Lesbian Rights: “NCLR is proud to have been the first LGBT legal organization to launch a Transgender Law Project, which later became an organization in its own right, the Transgender Law Center. Today, we are a national leader in shaping transgender law, and our Legal Director, Shannon Minter, is recognized as a leading architect and visionary of the transgender rights movement.”

Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays: “For decades, PFLAG has been proud to be a resource for transgender and gender non-conforming people, their families and friends.”

Gender Identity Watch opposes gender identity as a regressive, woman-hating ideology and those organizations that push this regressive, woman-hating ideology.

Not listed is the administration under President Barrack Obama. Given that Joe Bidden has declared 'transgender the human rights issue of our time' its only time before the Radfems declare war on the USA too.

I have learned two things about Brennan. She is a hateful, vindictive individual and two is to keep a eye on her no matter how distasteful that may be.


Stacie Laughton the Trans woman who resigned? She's Running To Replace Herself

Stacie Laughton, the trans woman who's election I first proclaimed as equal in importance to Obama's reelection (before she admitted to being a felon) has anounnced she is running in the special elections called to fill her seat, to replace herself.

She's back. Maybe.

Laughton told the Nashua Telegraph “I haven’t spoken to anybody at the Secretary of State. I have talked to the AG’s office quite a bit and I don’t seem to get much of a response or a statement from them,” said Laughton of her decision to run in her own replacement race.

She also hadn’t heard any ruling on her eligibility to run as a convicted felon.

“I believe that I’m duly qualified and eligible the way the law is written because I’m in the suspended portion of my sentence,” Laughton said.

Fellow Democrats’ reaction to news that Laughton may run again has been mixed, she said.

“I’m confident that I still have a lot of support out there, but as far as with any election, we never can tell how the voters are going to lean,” Laughton said. “Politics can be an up and down game, and ultimately the voters are always right.” Nashua Telegraph

Pervert Paul Reed Diguised As Old Lady arrested For The 15th Time!

Transgender and Cisgender woman in the UK, watch out for this pervert.

Paul Reed is not a transvestite as the Swns.com  would have you believe, he's a very, very sick man who puts on womens clothes to satisfy a urge to invade our personal space and even grope us.

My only question is why hasn't he been jailed yet? Why Is the judge going to wait for him to commit another crime?

Pope Lays The Foundation For Our Murders, Again.

Catholics  celebrate our murders and dehumanization by their leader.

Filled under know your enemies.

The pope in his latest screed twists human gender diversity, a natural occurring condition, validating hate, feeding murderers wrath. Does this man know how out of step he is with mankind's progression?

Has this man ever read the bible? He needs to. I have and I know God and Christ Loves you my Transgender Family!

A couple excerpts from his 'peace speech'

"While up to now we regarded a
false understanding of the nature of human freedom as one cause of the
crisis of the family, it is now becoming clear that the very notion of
being – of what being human really means – is being called into
question. He quotes the famous saying of Simone de Beauvoir: “one is
not born a woman, one becomes so” (on ne naît pas femme, on le
devient). These words lay the foundation for what is put forward today
under the term “gender” as a new philosophy of sexuality."

Benedict frame's the concept of gender as 'new' and go's on to say our ability to understand it as an attack on 'traditional family.

"The profound falsehood of this theory and of the
anthropological revolution contained within it is obvious. People
dispute the idea that they have a nature, given by their bodily
identity, that serves as a defining element of the human being. They
deny their nature and decide that it is not something previously given
to them, but that they make it for themselves."

Hater's need a better reason to kill us than the pope? Nope.

No, what applies now is
this: it was not God who created them male and female – hitherto
society did this, now we decide for ourselves. Man and woman as
created realities, as the nature of the human being, no longer exist.
Man calls his nature into question. From now on he is merely spirit
and will. The manipulation of nature, which we deplore today where our
environment is concerned, now becomes man’s fundamental choice where
he himself is concerned.

I'm going to the kitchen to take my HRT. You can read the full text of the Benedict's speech at the Catholic Herald if you want. Peace out.

Meteor Wifi Advert Complaints Upheld. Trans People Win.

A lesson for Paul Ryder: Transgender People Are Empowered, Again.

The Transgender Equality Network Ireland (TENI) has led the worlds trans community for the second time in a hard fought battle and for the second time we won

The first instance was pretty clear cut. There was no denying that the Paddy Power was transphobic so it took no time for the Advertising Standards Authority of Ireland (ASAI) to deem the ad transphobic compelling Paddy Power to pull it.

The latest instance it was much more difficult to prove harm was indeed intended so TENI called us to respond via twitter and social media. Respond we did but so did a world of of transphobic trolls waiting to argue otherwise.

But this time I found out who one of the actors were and took drag queen Paul Ryder to Task For His Part in the ad.

For my efforts I was harassed, people tried to intimidate me, calling me names, denigrating my humanity. There were even some tweets saying I should be sued.

But the coup de grace was a tweet mentioning Paul Ryder by one of his followers threatening to kick my teeth in. That account was deactivated soon afterwards.

Important to note, I am not declaring war on drag queens but there's a lesson here for people like Paul Ryder. You will be held accountable. If you act to harm us you can no longer drown us out in the media. We will not be cowed by threats of violence. You can no longer hide under the trans umbrella obfuscating the truth.

Transgender people are no longer your prey.

Did Philly Police Officer Elizabeth Skala Kill Transgender Woman Nizah Morris?

Two days after the "courtesy ride" by police on December 22, 2002 Nizah died in a Philadelphia hospital of a subdural hematoma.

The police say they know nothing about how Nizah Morris's injury claiming they simply dropped her off at 16th and Walnut because she asked to be, but the family isn't having any of it. There are too many questions left unanswered, too many discrepancies to the police  accounts and  records that would have proved the police official line? They were conveniently lost until recently when they were "found".

Daily Kos would like to know

Source Wiki: On December 22, Morris attended a party at the Key West Bar at the intersection of Juniper and Chancellor streets in Philadelphia. Morris left the bar at 2:00 a.m., and collapsed outside of the bar due to intoxication. Onlookers formed a group around Morris—who could not stand without assistance and had to be supported, according to witnesses—and waited for paramedics for approximately 20 minutes.
A 6th District police officer arrived, canceled the prior call for paramedics when Morris declined to go to a hospital, and offered her a courtesy ride to a hospital. Morris declined a ride to the hospital and asked to be taken home. Witnesses at the scene reportedly helped her into the police cruiser.

Though Morris lived in the 5000 block of Walnut Street, police officers reported that she asked to be let out at 15th and Walnut streets, left the patrol car, and began walking toward 16th Street.

Minutes later, a passing motorist discovered Morris lying on the sidewalk, bleeding from the right side of her forehead. A call was placed to 911, and a 9th District officer arrived at the scene, but did not call a supervisor or treat the event as a crime.

Morris was transported to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in critical condition. On December 23, 2002, she was removed from life support, and at 8:30 p.m. on December 24, 2002, Nizah Morris was pronounced dead.[3]

Judge Awards $700K Legal Fee to Michelle Kosilek Lawyers In SRS WIN

Glitter Photos

The price of denying us our Human Rights has just gone UP.

Source: Boston.com :A federal judge said today that he would award more than $700,000 in legal fees to the team of lawyers who represented Michelle Kosilek, the convicted murderer who sued the state for a sex change operation to treat her gender identity disorder.

Chief US District Judge Mark L. Wolf said from the bench in court in Boston that he recognized the cost to taxpayers, but he said the costs derived from a hard-fought lawsuit to preserve Kosilek’s constitutional rights.

He noted that while the state Department of Correction is appealing his decision to order the surgery, Kosilek’s legal team has offered to dismiss their request for legal fees if the state drops the appeal and pays for the surgery.

“Resistance at all costs can end up costing the taxpayers quite a lot,” the judge said, adding that the Department of Correction has had to pay hundreds of thousands in legal fees to lawyers in other cases in which the department violated prisoners’ constitutional rights.

“The repeated violation of constitutional rights of prisoners … costs taxpayers money that is needed for other purposes,” he said.


Ugandan TransMan Pepe Onziema Calls Out Hatefull Pastor

Adovacte-"The Reverend Martin Ssempa, a vehemently antigay pastor in Uganda who travels the country preaching against "sodomy" by showing pornography in churches, couldn't show basic common courtesy to a transgender man whom he appeared with on Ugandan talk show Morning Breeze."

In the video clip from Ugandan news channel NBS, Ssempa repeatedly interrupts and shouts over Pepe Onziema, a transgender man and LGBT activist in Uganda.

Transgender NZ Woman Sentenced to Hell: Jailed With Males

Paremoremo Prison
A transgender woman from New Zealand will serve two years in a male jail  for hitting a friend on the head with a bottle of champagne.  The prisoner Ms. Glen Cooper petitioned the court for home detention saying it is dangerous for transgender woman in New Zealand prisons. That request was denied despite the Chief Omibudsman Beverley Wakem's plea that transgender inmates be housed with the gender they present regardless of surgical status because otherwise they will be raped and beaten.

Judge Duncan Harvey made the comment before sentencing:

"This court has no power over Corrections policy but, in my view, it's an appalling policy but it is one I'm powerless to do anything about."- Northern Advocate

New Zealand's rule remain unchanged:
The  M.03.05.01 Transgender prisoner criteria

1.Where the Chief Executive is satisfied that a transgender prisoner has completed gender reassignment surgery, the prisoner must be promptly placed in accommodation that accords with that prisoner’s new gender

M.03.05.02 General rules for transgender prisoners

1.Transgender prisoners:

a.are not subjected to acts of aggression or humiliation.

b.housed in male prisons are treated as male prisoners.

c.housed in female prisons are treated as female prisoners.

d.are permitted normal mixing.

e.if not transferred to the prison of the gender they perceive themselves to be, they are entitled to single cell accommodation if they choose, or to share a cell with other transgender prisoners.

f.are treated with dignity and consideration when being searched.

g.they wear clothing that is suitable to their needs.

h.can continue, at their own cost, any medical or hormonal treatment commenced prior to imprisonment. However, sexual reassignment surgery is not to be considered during a term of imprisonment.

So basically pre-ops may be raped, beaten and subjected to hellish conditions, but not post-ops?

Miss Pennsylvania USA Sheena Monnin Fined 5 Million Dollars For Quiting Over Transgender Inclusion

The price for transphobia has just gone up, way up. Miss Pennsylvania USA Sheena Monnin owes the Donald's beauty pageant 5 million dollars for lost revenue.

New York (AP) — "A beauty queen who claimed this year's Miss USA contest was fixed has been ordered to pay the pageant organization $5 million for defamation."

"In a decision signed last week, an arbitrator found that the comments from Miss Pennsylvania USA Sheena Monnin were false, harmful and malicious. Monnin had alleged that the five finalists had been selected in advance of the pageant's live telecast."

"The arbitrator, Theodore Katz, said Monnin had two motives: "She was a disgruntled contestant who failed to make it past the preliminary competition" and she objected to the pageant's decision to allow transgender contestants. He wrote that the way the contest is judged "precludes any reasonable possibility that the judging was rigged."

With the echo's of Newtown ricocheting in our souls we awaken to another evil manifesting itself in an Elementary School. The Aurora School board has by example let it be known to school children physical assaults and verbal abuse of transgender classmates is acceptable and worst yet satisfies cravings to do harm to others different from them.

"We were kicked and pushed by the IFI and associates at the Ad Hoc meeting. They were trying to prevent us from entering the school." Crystal Ann Gray Committee member.

President Obama called on us to protect ALL of our children. He did not say except the children the IFI a designated Hate Group  wish to dehumanize.

The Aurora School Board disbanded the Ad Hoc Committee during it's December 17th meeting. The committee was just formed by the board to discuss its transgender policy after the outrageous conduct by the IFI at the regular School Board meeting made future discussions impossible. This action effectively ended any hope transgender students in the district had of ever feel safe, respected or  accepted.

"The IFI won this battle but not the war" Crystal Ann Gray president of the Illinois  based United States Transgender Transgender Advocacy told me in a phone call after the meeting.  Ms. Gray one of two transgender Ad Hoc committee members said "They won by intimidating the school board."

Glsen 2011 Survey
Ms Gray who was invited onto the Ad Hoc committee as a expert witness used the  Glsen 2011 Survey  to educate committee members of the inadequacies of the School's anti harassment policies. Gray explained the inexplicable about face the board took "The School Board justified their action by saying that Illinois state law will suffice despite being fully aware it doesn't."

My take? They scared the Board so bad with there petition  calling on their firing the board forgot the reason they unanimously voted for protecting every child in the first place.

The transgender inclusive policies unanimously approved by the Aurora School board are now officially history and so is the School board. They will forever be remembered for what was shouted at them when they rescinded the policy by the parents at that meeting.

Why I support Levi Pine

Today's guest post is from a good friend and author who has graciously agreed to write in response to a earlier controversial post on planetransgender.

Zoe E Whitten is the author over 30 books, including Sandy Morrison and the Pack of Pussies, The Life and Death of a Sex Doll, Zombie Punter, and Confessions of a Zombie Lover. When she isn’t writing fiction, she can usually be found on  Twitter  ranting incoherently about isms and bullying.

Why I support Levi Pine

by Zoe E Whitten

After a brief discussion this weekend on Twitter, Kelli invited me to send a guest post on her article about Levi Pine, and I’m going to disagree with her assessment of the case and explain why I can’t accept her thinking about how trans rights should be presented to cisgender folks.

I don’t believe Levi Pine is wrong for making a discrimination case because it is discrimination to suggest that a trans person should have to use a separate but equal shower facility. If we replaced trans man with black man and suggested that it would be immoral for little white boys to see adult black naked men in the same setting of a public shower, the inherent prejudice of such an arrangement would be obvious, and no one would stand for it.

That some trans people agree that it is immoral for us to be nude around children suggests that we are internalizing guilt for the stereotype that we’re one step up from child molesters, and it’s not a healthy mindset for us to be taking on. Our transitions are all about shedding societal expectations and guilt, but what do non-ops of either gender do if they decide they’re happy without a lower surgery? Do we tell them they aren’t fit for society while passing post-ops are okay? All that’s going to do is create a class of have-nots within our movement, and we already lack the clout not to be forced in GL lobbies that rarely represent our best interests.

I also think it’s hypocritical of cisgender folks to suggest that exposing young boys to nude cis men is okay, but them seeing a trans man’s vagina is immoral. Nudity around children is either immoral in all cases, or it isn’t in all cases, full stop. To suggest that a trans person’s nudity is somehow different from a cis person’s is asking us to voluntarily accept a prejudice held against us and our bodies. We should be proud of who we are and of our struggles against gender prejudice. Anything less is like keeping a toe in the closet because we’re supposed to be ashamed of our genitals.

We shouldn’t accept this idea temporarily to advance our cause either, because we’ve been fighting since the 60s over the same basic issues over and over, with both straights and with our GL allies. If we accept that it’s not right for us to shower in public, we’re sliding down a slope toward accepting that we can’t use public toilets in our chosen gender either. And honestly, I’m getting sick of people throwing “confusion of the kids” in our faces as an excuse for why we can’t have equal rights.

Returning to a black civil rights analogy, this is like suggesting that maybe we should ride at the back of the bus another decade, just in case it might change someone’s mind about us. But civil rights history should have taught us by now, you don’t confront prejudice by agreeing to accept a stereotype, not even temporarily to placate an enemy. You move to the front of the bus and make a scene. You go get in the shower where you feel you belong, and you don’t accept a separate but equal offering for a private isolating shower.

I think the real problem is, people sometimes forget that we are in a civil rights fight. Not a debate, and not a discourse. This being a fight, it’s okay to offend our opponents without it hurting our current position one way or the other. They have no problems offending us with insults and physical attacks, so it doesn’t make sense to be accommodating on this one issue. We’re on the losing side no matter what, so why should we accept the idea that there’s something shameful about our bodies when what we’re fighting for is to remove these social stigmas?

Moreover, accepting this idea that our nude pre-op bodies are immoral means post-ops end up abandoning non-ops. It’s a divide and conquer strategy being used against us, and I cannot accept that we walk away from so many of our brothers and sisters for the sake of political expediency. We didn’t like when the gay lobbies did it to us with ENDA over and over, so let’s not make the same mistake within our own ranks.

We should be pushing this issue just as strongly as gays push their marriage agenda. There is nothing to be ashamed of in being trans, and there is nothing immoral about our bodies, non-op or not. To suggest otherwise is to internalize the hatred cast upon us by society, and I am done bearing the burdens of their hate simply for being born.

Is Levi Pine’s case an “agenda killer”? Only if your agenda was playing nice to prejudiced people in the hopes of them one day hating you less. But my agenda is getting up in peoples’ faces and reminding them that there’s nothing wrong with us. Which is why I feel this is another prejudice that we should work against, not embrace and compromise on. We should be thanking Levi for having the guts to stand up to societal bullying, not tsking him for embarrassing us with his “immoral” naked body.


IACHR: 65% of LGBT murdered Oct. - Nov. 2012 Were Trans

CIDH llama a LatAm para defender a las personas LGBTI.

The America's are far from safe for trans people as the graphic illustrates. There are a lot of variables that contribute to the final numbers, such as freedom of the press, cultural acceptance and state of advocacy. The higher numbers in a given country could also represent a strong surge towards acceptance by the trans community and the inevitable backlash of violence.

Of the 54 reported murders of LGBT people in the America's during Oct Nov 2012 34 were trans. with Brazil being especially deadly with 20 reported murders during that period, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) reports.

Reported murders trans during Nov. Dec. 2012: Argentina (1), Bolivia (1), Brazil (20), the Dominican Republic (1), Honduras (1), Mexico (8), Nicaragua (1), and the United States (2).

Also, the Commission received information on 15 murders of gay men or men perceived to be gay during these two months. These occurred in Brazil (12), Mexico (2), and Nicaragua (1). Finally, the Commission also received information that there were 4 homicides of lesbian women or women perceived to be lesbian, occurring in Brazil (3) and Ecuador (1).

Brazil reported 35 murdered or 65 percent of the total for LGBT people.


Transgender people comprise only 1% of the overall population yet we are being murdered at this phenomenal rate? Why?

The IACHR calls on governments to investigate these murders. Many of these murders and acts of violence are not investigated and if they are, the perpetrators go unpunished. This only serves to fan the flame of hate, empowering criminals ultimately increasing violence against LGBT people.

NYC Transwoman Arrested For Presenting Court Name and Gender Marker Change To HRA

Jolie Estrella, a transgender woman  is still depending on friends for food because the city's Human Resource Administration (HRA) has refused to accept her court order correcting her name and gender marker.

When Ms Estrella tried to present her name and gender marker court paperwork on November 2011 she told the Queens Chronicle

" They were bewildered,” Estrella said of her visit. “One of the girls was confused and didn’t know what to do. She went to a supervisor, or a coworker, someone who she respected. He accused me of having fraudulent documents.”

She left that day and returned dressed in a sweatsuit, I presume in a atempt to appear androgynous, prepared to be abused for food the Queens Legal Service reports:

"The Center’s Case Manager refused to process her request to change her name, refused to correct her gender marker from male to female, and refused to use the correct pronouns and her legal name despite repeated requests. Furthermore, the Case Manager made stunningly inappropriate, discriminatory and demeaning remarks about Ms. Estrella’s sex, gender, orientation and physical disability (including telling her that she had low self-esteem and could not “make it as a man”)

When she asked to speak to a supervisor, the individual allegedly refused to use her legal name and instead sent her to another location where she was met by HRA security guards who ordered her to leave the building.
When she refused, a guard allegedly dragged her into an office where she was issued a summons and citation, again in her former name.
HRA failed to process Ms. Estrella’s application for benefits in her correct name. Because of this treatment, Ms. Estrella was denied equal access to benefits. In April 2012, an Administrative Law Judge ordered HRA to process Ms. Estrella’s Public Assistance application in her legal name and to provide her with retroactive benefits. Stunningly, HRA continues to address Ms. Estrella by her former name in all correspondence.

These actions by HRA staff constitute violations of the New York City and State Human Rights Laws, which prohibit such discrimination in public accommodations. The actions further violate HRA’s own Procedure No. P-09-22, “Serving Transgender, Transsexual, and Gender Nonconforming Individuals,” which was issued in December 2009 after years of advocacy by the Audre Lorde Project, the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, and Housing Works. The Procedure instructs HRA staff to ask clients what their preferred name, title, and gender pronoun are and informs staff that refusing to abide by their answer is a form of harassment.

“Ms. Estrella has a right to be treated with respect and to have her documents reflect who she is, as does any applicant for benefits,” said Richard Saenz, Staff Attorney at Queens Legal Services. “Transgender individuals are constantly forced to accept harassment or give up their benefits. That’s not a choice that anyone should be forced to make, particularly at agencies that serve as a last defense against poverty, homelessness, and poor health. As a City agency, HRA must abide by the laws and regulations of both the State and New York City.”

The new suit follows a similar suit filed against HRA in June by Manhattan Legal Services and South Brooklyn Legal Services on behalf of another transgender woman whose request to change her name and gender marker were denied, despite the fact that she had in her possession both a name change order and a letter from her physician. LSNYC’s clients seek damages, an order that the defendants and their employees will refrain from such discrimination against the clients or any other person, trainings for HRA staff on the rights of transgender people, and a clear procedure for changing gender markers on identity documents.

European Parliament Takes Russian LGBT Discrimination To Task

The European Parliament adopted it's 2010 2011 review of human rights in member states. In doing so it made it clear to the Russian and Ukrainian governments, among other violators, you want to be known as civilized society? Then act like you do and stop persecuting LGBT people. Member states who cooperated with CIA rendition were also taken to task.

39. Calls on the Member States to properly fulfil their obligations under international law, which they have so far failed to do, to investigate serious human rights violations carried out in the context of cooperation with the CIA counter-terrorism programme, to step up the fight against trafficking in human beings and organised crime and to afford full redress to victims;

Transgender Europe Reports:

93. Calls on Member States to ensure the protection of participants in LGBT public events, including pride marches, and to ensure that these events can take place lawfully.

This addresses the illegal  Russian "Gay Propaganda" laws which effectively isolates and outlaws LGBT gathering and media.

94. Deplores that transgender people are still considered mentally ill in a number of Member States; calls on Member States to introduce or review legal gender recognition procedures, on the model of Argentina, and review conditions (including forced sterilisation) set for legal gender recognition; calls on the Commission and the World Health Organisation to withdraw gender identity disorders from the list of mental and behavioural disorders and to ensure a non-pathologising reclassification in the negotiations on the 11th version of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11).

Source: Gay Star News"Michael Cashman MEP, co-president of the LGBT Intergroup, reacted: ‘Both Russia and Ukraine signed up to the European Convention on Human Rights and the International Covenent on Civil and Political Rights. No-one forced them to, and they must now respect their international obligations.

‘The European Union will remain strong in its demands, and will continue supporting the activists who bravely defy these unfair laws.’
