A Sabrina Symington Cartoon — Butt Pat

T* News from TG Forum -

Those who fail to learn anything about transgender people must get by using their imaginations to ponder just what kind of shady things "those people" might be getting up to. Of course they could try and learn about transgender people and then know that they "get up to" the same sorts of things all people are interested in. Today's Sabrina Symington cartoon illustrates just one of their activities.

Far Different Times

T* News from TG Forum -

Lou Reed sang in Sweet Jane, "Jack is in his corset, Jane is in her vest, And me, honey, I'm in a rock 'n' roll band. Huh. Riding a Stutz Bear Cat, Jim, Ya know, those were different times." And times were different for LGBTQ people before and during World War II. Jack could only wear his corset in the privacy of his home. There was no internet to let people know they weren't alone. Even into the 1960s and '70s the difference was evident. And there were no "trigger" words, PC designations, and little understanding of those who were different. Susan Grant lived through it and writes about what it was like.

(Transgender?) History Lesson

T* News from TG Forum -

Back in 1997 Shirley Bassey sang a song called History Repeating. That's the subject of Sophie Lynne's post today. Not the song but the idea that if you wait long enough what has happened once will happen again. We don't mind when the things that happen are nice and pleasant, but there are many examples of things that are evil and diabolical. With the current state of transgender rights Sophie is afraid that history may indeed be repeating.
