Thanks Fallen Angel, I had not seen the videos from Channel 4. I watched the full series and did enjoy how it showed so many of the situations that Transsexual people have to go through. I transitioned late in my life at 75 and retired at the same time. I had built up the finances to provide a decent retirement as well as the funds to pay for all involved in my transition which is way out of reach for a large percent of transsexual people. M to F is quite expensive but F to M is very involved and much more expensive and not as satisfactory with it's results. I was pretty much on my own with my transition, it would have been such a great help to have had such an event in my case but it looks as if things are getting better. I am now a very happy 80 year old Lesbian and enjoying life to its fullest and to top it all I am in great health and able to do it.
Thanks for the heads-up, Biped. I'll stick to my tea. (Tetley, Twinings and/or Stash)
I used to be somewhat addicted to Co-Cola, but all it did was make me fatter. I don't even remember what I did to get the craving out of my system. I had a sip a few months ago, and it didn't even taste right, so I really don't miss it at all.***********************
About the Utah decision....I read some of the comments below the article, and several people were saying things like "It's over!" and "We won." Uh...as long as there are people who believe fantasy fiction, "IT" won't be over.
That's what a lot of us thought when the Roe v. Wade decision was handed down, and 40 years later, we are still fighting the right-wing nuts who think they have a right to dictate how other people should live their lives.
Coca Cola -OK with persecution of LGBT people, and arresting people who support them.
Cheers to Sochi. Have a Coke! Not!
Fallen Angel, thanks for updating on transgender issues. Religion is clearly a wellspring of transphobia.
so, most of the transgender people i've met have been disowned by their families and told by their parents that they are not loved or even hated, denied jobs and even killed, often by suicide suicide and sometimes by trans-phobic people http://news.yahoo.com/jamaica-transgender-teen-murdered-mob-0704464..., sometimes transgender people especially women are shunned in the media, names like she-male and stuff have become popular but they are disrespectful to a lot of women, maybe not all but still. anyways, i think it's just that people don't understand, for instance someone told me once that it's okay to be gay but God made you male or female for a reason and many times transgender people are pressured into becoming effeminite gays or butch lesbians...ok im done, shoot :P
i think everyone should watch this to see what transgender people go through, they are human beings that have to suffer and stuff just like everybody else, most people (sometimes even within the lgbt community) see transpeople as freaks when really they just want to be treated as male and female, (a girl i know came out as a woman and when she did her gay boyfriend broke up with her and called her a freak) this especially relates to trans-women who because of certain types of media have been given names like he-she and shemale and other very degrading terms, like think about if you were talking to a woman if she would like to be treated like this, but i think it's just because most people don't understand, so here goes with this video and i hope more people are for transgender rights as well ^_^
I slept through the Parade (I usually do...it's become too commercial and boring), BUT I wish I'd seen this float, and heard the cheers and applause.
