  •  Thanks, Steven (10+ / 0-)

    I don't mind being referenced at all. I'm glad you enjoyed the diary and videos! :)

    I don't mind if you're straight. Just don't flaunt it in public.

      Thanks for the diary! My daughter is that "jammie" kind of girl as well -- I'll send her the video.

      She is taking a human sexuality class and I was amazed to hear that she explained to the group some of the difficulties she encounters. She's always mistaken for a boy and for the most part, she doesn't really mind. However, she will not use a restroom. A teacher yelled at her for trying to walk into the girls room and that was the last time she ever tried.

      Some of the kids asked why she didn't just use the men's room. "Um, ick. I'm not a boy even though I look like one. They won't want me in there and, yuck, they have urinals. I am NOT going in there!"

      I'm constantly amazed at her self-assurance over all this. But still, I think she'll really enjoy the video. Thanks!

      •  There's been a case locally (5+ / 0-)

        of a gender non-conforming high school boy who was set on fire on an AC Transit bus by another high school kid; the police and DA are trying to determine if it was a hate crime because the victim was wearing a skirt (the kid was napping on the bus -- makes me scared to fall asleep while riding). Fortunately the victim will survive -- a couple of Good Samaritans on the bus helped put out the flames -- but he's in for a rough recovery including some reconstructive surgery/skin grafts.

        Makes me not want to live on this planet anymore.
