Les tests de féminité pour Semenya sont dépassés

L’enquête médicale à laquelle va devoir se soumettre Caster Semenya pour déterminer si elle est réellement une femme n’a aucun sens, de l’avis de plusieurs spécialistes. Car du point de vue scientifique, il est tout simplement impossible de répartir les milliards d’individus que compte l’espèce humaine en seulement deux catégories complètement distinctes, d’un côté des hommes, de l’autre des femmes.

Focus on the Family Urges Congress to Oppose ENDA
In the middle of the healthcare reform debate, let’s not forget that after Congress reconvenes next week, LGBT activists and their Congressional counterparts will be pushing for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) (
H.R. 2981 & S.1584). The bill, awaiting consideration in both the House and Senate, constitutes yet another attempt to silence and punish those who disagree with or have moral objections to the practice of homosexuality, bisexuality or “transgenderism.”

Trangendered recording artist says Lil Mama apology not enough
Transgendered recording artist, Dina Marie, is speaking out on behalf of the LGBT community saying that Lil Mama's apology isn't enough.
"I fell as a transgendered woman that it was unnecessary for Lil Mama to refer to Leiomy as a man, because transexuality is not something that is learned, but it is something that is with you from birth. It is something inside you," Dina Marie said. (Photo)
