Gay Pride flag removed from high school at transgender student’s request

Oh my God Gallus!  You are so full of shit! What, do you think that if you repeat a lie often enough then people will believe it? This is 1 student, most likely 18 or younger. Could the school not also fly a trans flag? Kids don’t need much excuse to be assholes to each other, and some simply get older and bully others using blogs.

Raising of the Pride Flag

Kennebunk, Maine- Days after the Kennebunk High School became the first in the state to fly the Gay Pride flag, it has been removed on request of a transgender student who apparently believes that Gay Pride and the visibility of lesbian and gay students run contrary to the well-being of transgender persons.

School administration sided with the anti-gay transgender student. According to news reports, the transgender student felt that pride and visible support for lesbian and gay students might inadvertently draw attention to transgender students who are ashamed of being transgender and desire to distance themselves from the Pride movement.

This is not the first time transgender activists have sought to remove gay pride flags from schools. Last year the University of British Columbia’s Gay Pride flag was burned on the flagpole by a trans student who feared increased public awareness…

Were Jenni Murray’s Comments Fair?

Well to use an argument I’ve seen countless time on GenderTrender, Jane was interupted, talked over and dismissed so many times during the interview.

Transphobia and sexism – Jenni Murray & Sarah Dittum

I’m commenting on the article linked here written by the journalist Sarah Dittum about another journalist / presenter Jenni Murray.  At the weekend, Jenni Murray published a piece about transwomen not being actual women.  There have been calls for her to be fired from the BBC over the article (Jenni Murray present BBC Radio 4’s Women Hour).  I don’t believe that she should be fired though.  I don’t agree with her on the piece she wrote, and wished she’d never written it / had it published, but it’s done now, and there’s nothing can be done to stop it.  What this blog post is about is about more than one article I disagree with.  Sarah Dittum writes defending Jenni Murrays piece and goes so far as to say calls for Jenni Murray to be fired as “institutional sexism”.  I’m sorry Sarah, Jenni wrote a transpohobic article, there’s calls for her be disciplined, and you’re saying the people calling for her disciplining are being sexist?  What planet do you live on?  If the article had been about race or religion, she’d have been fired in a heartbeat by now, but because it’s only about transpeople, say what you want, that’s fine.

By the way Sarah, I’d have posted this in the comments section of your blog, but it appears that you’ve disabled any feedback to it.   A blog is for discussion and debate, yet you seem scared by any opposing voices.  Shame.

My weekend in Kent

So this weekend I spent in a lovely town called Tunbridge Wells in Kent (I’ve just gotten on my train home as I’m typing this on my iPhone)

I’ve been before, working as a live in cater to a lovely lady that unfortunately is suffering with Alzheimer’s, who I’ll simply refer to as J.  Well it’s been a year since I’ve seen J last, and I’m sorry to say that her condition has gone severely downhill.  I didn’t expect her to remember me, but she also didn’t remember the name of the carer who replaced me or her husband.  I bloody hate this disease / condition.  I was almost in tears so many times this weekend thinking about it, and was thinking maybe I shouldn’t have said I could help this weekend.  

I need to get very drunk as soon as humanly possible I think 😢

UK Transwoman Athlete admits to Triple Stab Attack on Sports Officials who discovered he was Male

What exactly has her trans status got to do with her attacking people? I don’t suppose there’s any violent women in the world ey? No prisons with women in them for violence or murder?

Former British Women’s Fell Running Champion Lauren Jeska confessed in court today to committing a vicious premeditated triple stabbing attack on British sports authorities last March at Alexander Stadium.

“Women athlete who tried to murder sports official was transgender and facing review into medals”, reports the UK Mirror Online:

“Sean Kyne, District Crown Prosecutor from West Midlands Crown Prosecution Service, said: “Lauren Jeska had a disagreement with British Athletics officials which escalated and rather than resolve the matter through the appropriate channels, she armed herself with a number of knives, drove from her home in Wales to Birmingham and launched a premeditated and savage attack on the victim which resulted in the victim and his colleagues sustaining a number of life threatening injuries.”

“Fell Runner Lauren Jeska tried to kill British athletics official because she feared the body would revoke her titles over transgender status” The Telegraph reports:

Living Life ‘as a Woman’ was like a career. Now I’m Retiring.

Oh my God! what a load of utter shit! You really expect us to believe this tripe? Using the exact words that terf’s use, and all the “classic” references etc. please, give me a fucking break.

An email regarding my dead Nigerian uncle who ran a bank while owning oil fields who died in a car crash without leaving a will is more convincing than this rubbish!

On the Dissolution of a Dream

Guest Post by MikefromOhio

Hello Everyone,

In response to Gallus Mag’s gracious invitation to share more of my experience, I offer the following account. Let me say first that although I think my experience may be of some value, it is still only one perspective. Please feel free to ask or challenge me about anything I’ve said and I will try to respond. I may have some questions for you as well. Lastly, my thanks to Gallus and all the contributors here for maintaining such an important forum. To my story then.

Like most boys who dream of being girls, I was much closer to my mother than my father. I felt strongly that I understood her sadness, especially as the wife of a man like my dad. I loved her, deeply, while perceiving…
