“When I saw you enter...I thought you was…,” the as-yet-unidentified man said.

“A boy?” Rush replied. She was wearing a t-shirt and basketball shorts.

“You know it’s difficult,” the man said with a shrug as he walked away from the bathroom. “You are dressed like a man. Of course, you are dressed like a man, so…”

Court overturns Virginia school's transgender bathroom rule

http://www.wsoctv.com/news/local/court-overturns-schools-tra...

Still more appeals to go through. This is the same court that would review North Carolina's law.

A Virginia high school discriminated against a transgender teen by forbidding him from using the boys' restroom, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday in a case that could have implications for a North Carolina law that critics say discriminates against LGBT people.

One step forward, a Marathon run backward

While in Illinois there is legislation to allow birth certificate changes without surgery, in South Dakota they want to force student TGs to use the bathroom of their biological gender.

Illinois is trying

It's a start.

...transgender and intersex people in Illinois could correct their birth certificate if they receive a declaration by a physician stating they have "undergone treatment that is clinically appropriate for that individual for the purpose of gender transition, based on contemporary medical standards, or that the individual has an intersex condition,"

Advice needed please

I help run a yearly convention. A year and a half ago or so, one of our attendees transitioned MtF. As far as I know, she has had no troubles, other than some wrong name usage (she has been coming to the convention for 10+ years). The wrong name usage dropped from last year to this year. Even my very conservative friends have treated her well, doing their best to use her correct name.

Illinois passes a good law, for once.

Gender Identity Protection (HB 3552/PA 99-0417): Provides that the written directions a person leaves regarding disposition of that person’s remains may include instructions regarding gender identity including, but not limited to, instructions with respect to appearance, chosen name, and gender pronouns, regardless of whether the person has obtained a court-ordered name change, changed the gender marker on any identification document, or undergone any transition-related medical treatment.

A Prayer for a Friend

I just got a call from a friend, her husband just went for emergency surgery. It looks grim. I would ask anyone religious out there to say a prayer for him. I'm not religious, but he is very devout and a good man.

Thank you.

GRRRRR!

Palatine HS is being stupid!

This if ridiculous. This isn't someone just starting to transition.

The student who filed the complaint has been living as a girl for a number of years, Knight said. She plays sports and would like to be in the same locker room as her friends and classmates. Relegating her to a separate room down a long hallway from the gym only serves to stigmatize her, he said.

I saw it on the News...

It's been done before

Some fanfiction author is going to sue. The 10th anniversary (has it been that long?) Twilight is going to have a genderswapped version of the story.

(I included NSFW based upon what people are likely to say when they see the story. I couldn't find a Caution for horrible things.)

I was reading my daily comics and ran across this one. I'm not exactly sure what the message is, and whether or not I agree with it.

What does anyone else think?

I know that everyone gets those odd emails, Increase your 'body part' and Buy cheap 'drug' here type ads. But the other day I got one with a very strange subject: Email Exclusive!

(For those that don't know Woman Within! is a clothing store.)
