Changer de sexe, encore un tabou
Ils seraient 30 000 en France, mais les chiffres fluctuent tellement qu’il est difficile de savoir s’ils reflètent la réalité. La réalité des transsexuels, hommes enfermés dans un corps de femme ou femmes dans une enveloppe masculine, est celle qui est exposée dans un colloque organisé jusqu’à ce soir à Montpellier : de grandes difficultés d’accès aux soins, au travail, à une nouvelle identité. Au bout, il n’y a ni victoires, ni défaites. On est loin des caricatures, qui les assimilent aux travestis. Loin de la confusion, qui confond transsexualité et homosexualité. Le genre n’est pas qu’une question de sexe. Et quand les frontières bougent, la société est ébranlée.

A Ghanaian Woman Trapped In A Man's Body
Could it be that there are monsters born to human parents? Like for example, children born with abnormal features, abnormal gifts, or even super-natural abilities, which set them apart from the rest? Or let's say children, who seem to mature way faster than their own peers for no apparent reason? Most naturally, it's expected of a woman to deliver a healthy child into this world after her nine months pregnancy.

Transgenders spend days on cleaning brass, copper utensils every Diwali
Diwali cleaning at any household might need a couple of maids, some floor cleaner and brooms. But at a transgender's house in the city, the requirement is of 10 maids, around 20 kgs of tamarind, a lot of fine riverbed clay dust and three days of effort. And all this merely to clean utensils!

[USA] [Commentary]
A tale of two stories
Given increased press coverage trans issues have garnered over the past five years, I remain skeptical regarding the media’s ability and/or desire to report fairly and objectively. Any fiction that much of the collective press desires objective reporting or that it isn’t exhibitionistic is destroyed in the wake of the contrast between these two stories. As to ability, the misuse of pronouns and nomenclature by various and sundry publications is rampant. This is either ignorant (AP and other stylebooks have been updated for some time now), or a flagrant disregard for human dignity.

Schwarzenegger Creates Harvey Milk Day While Rejecting Trans Rights
You may have heard that California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger recently signed into law a bill that will create a Harvey Milk Day, honoring the slain gay politician and icon. It’s the first time that any LGBT person has been honored in such a way, so obviously people are excited about the symbolism.
