‘Alondra’ loses custody battle
The Jalisco state government has again denied child custody to the first transgender Mexican to fight for her parental rights in court.
After a two-year battle, the State Family Commission rejected Alberto"Alondra" Avila's second appeal to regain full custody of her10-year-old daughter.
Avila adopted her daughter as a baby and raised her for ten years before a social worker recommended she be removed to an orphanage. The worker said Avila was "unfit" to be a parent.
Avila says she is being discriminated against solely because of her sexual identity.
The original ruling concluded Avila, a restaurant worker, couldn't support her child financially. But in subsequent rulings commission director Claudia Corona Marseille said that Avila lived an "immoral" lifestyle that jeopardized her daughter [see the Reporter's June 16, 2007 article "Mother battles lifestyle judgment " for more details on the case].
The commission has refused to consider evidence submitted on behalf of Avila, including a psychological evaluation showing her to be a legitimately employed, mentally fit parent.
Avila is allowed weekly, supervised visits with her daughter. She says she will appeal the decision in court.

Gender Confused Kids? Who's confused here?
I read with concern The New Paper's front-page article on MOE's ongoing efforts to train teachers to counsel gender-confused kids (TNP. 11 Sep 08). My question is - do the counselling sessions aim to help the child find his/her true gender identity or influence transgender youth to conform to social norms?
