Looks like Brazil is well on it's way to marriage equality....  BBC News.

Interesting info in the article - stating Brazil is the world's most populous Catholic country, and has 60,000 same sex couples.

Adoptive parents sue over their child's gender reassignment surgery.

On various news sites, this is ABC.

I'm not crazy about suing medical providers, especially since this surgery may be considered a standard of care.  I think it's wrongly a standard of care, and should be ended.  Maybe the lawsuit will create a "speed bump" in the decision process, or change minds, and avoid tragedy for another child.

The fact is, the child was intersex.  That was (and is) their gender.

 This surgery was not gender assignment, it was gender reassignment, and ignores that children grow into their identity which might not be what the surgeon chose.

I'm glad the story is in the news.  It might help with awareness.

Now it's Minnesota....  First they overturn their anti-equality amendment, now they  pass marriage equality.  Cool!

Brother Richard, the site's owner, can promote anyone to moderator. I've done that on several groups.

Hello All,

For 4 years, I've  been the moderator (administrator) for this group.  During that time it's grown from a hundred or so members, to 590, although I suspect most are not active.

I need to streamline my role, for personal reasons.

The member who began the group ("creator") is no longer here, and hasn't been for 4 years.  The website, on the Ning platform, does not allow an administrator (me) to reassign that function.  Only the creator can do so.  

This leaves me in a dilemma.  The only way that I can think to reassign the role of moderator for this group is to CLOSE this group to new posts, members, and comments, and redirect members to the new group.  That new group would have to be created by an interested member.  This group would remain on site, but only as an archive.

Is there someone who is motivated to do that?  I would like to pass on the baton, so to speak, even though I think this is an important group.

I wish I could have been so brave back in the day.

This is an old video, but I have never seen it. Though I do think some of the kid's statistics are wrong (6 million gay people kill themselves a year?).
