Euro court rules for Lithuanian transsexuals
The European Court of Human Rights issued a ruling Sept. 11 strengthening the rights of transsexuals in Lithuania.

Please call me "Miss," transgendered Thais say
Yonlada Krerkkong Suanyot says she's every bit a woman, except for on her identity card which identifies her as a man.
Although Thailand has a worldwide reputation as a paradise for transsexuals, with gender reassignment surgery widely available and relatively cheap, the kingdom does not allow people to officially change their gender for legal purposes.
Activists are now trying to change that, proposing a new law that would allow transvestites and transsexuals to legally change their gender and adopt the title "Miss".

What do you think of post op MTF transgenders who like women?
I wasn't sure where I was meant to post this, so basically I'd like to talk about my experience and just ask in general what women here think about post op mtf transgenders who like women. I have also seen them being referred to as trannydykes or lesbian transsexuals on various sites. But I don't want to go into naming because that may be a sensitive issue for some here. Neither is the question about whether you would date a completely transitioned mtf woman, but basically about where you think they fit in the lesbian and biwomen community and if you think they belong.

The Dangers of ENDA (Employment Non-Discrimination Act)
Excerpt: After reading this story, Vic introduced Matt Barber, the Director of Policy for Cultural Issues for CWA (Concerned Women for America). He appeared on Crosstalk to discuss ENDA, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, also known as HR 2015.
ENDA would essentially grant federally protected minority status to people based upon sexual orientation (homosexuality) or gender identity (cross- dressers), while at the same time committing wrongful discrimination against people of faith. Specifically, under ENDA, sexual morality could not be considered a factor in hiring or housing.
[Blog/News] More Than 12,000 PFLAG Allies Ask Congress to Protect Gay Workers

[Letters to the editor] Transgender 'patriot' speaks out
First, before I begin, I just want to let you know that I support WND and the work you do primarily as it relates to the illegal-alien invasion and the North American Union. My feedback below doesn't change that.
I recently read an article on WND about companies who were listed as providing workplaces safe from discrimination against LGBT employees. I am not only transgender, but I'm very active in the patriot movement.
I began this journey when I was very young, and it's been some years now. I feel badly that the "T" is almost always associated with the LGB as well. I often times do not agree with their politics. In fact, I almost never do. I'm very patriotic, and their politics cannot typically be characterized as patriotic.

Federal Appeals Court: Transsexuals Have No Civil Rights
A federal appeals court has upheld a lower court ruling that found transsexuals are not covered by federal discrimination laws.
The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Krystal Etsitty had no legal recourse in fighting her firing by the Utah Transit Authority in 2005.
The court, which sits in Denver, found that the trial judge was correct in finding that the transit authority feared it could be sued by people born biologically female if it were discovered Etsitty still had male genitals.
