Les transsexuels de retour boulevard Albert II
Il y a un an, la Ville annonçait un plan global de lutte qui allait les éloigner. Visiblement, ce n’est pas le cas et çà ne fait pas les affaires des habitants.
Vus il a deux ou trois jours, deux transsexuels racolant boulevard Albert II. Mauvaise affaire pour les habitants et pour la police.
Ce genre de prostitution est le plus désagréable. Bruyants, vulgaires, agressifs, les transsexuels font partie de filières sud-américaines. Leur présence s’accompagne souvent de toute une délinquance: vols, parfois avec violence, bagarres, règlements de comptes.

[Philippines] [Blog/Commentary]
Another day, another case of trans discrimination
I don't know what's with establishments that keep enforcing asinine dress codes but in the Philippines there are a lot of them. The dress code is almost always lopsided, meaning it is not enforced equally on all and always singles out a certain group of people. That is obviously discrimination but because there is no law that prohibits such prejudicial business practices in this country, many establishments get away with it by invoking the standard excuse that the business has the right to refuse entry to those it deems unfit to enter its premises.

Apology forces trans law change
The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has been forced to drop its policy prohibiting transgender people from obtaining a passport in their lived-sex to travel abroad for gender re-alignment surgery.

Hate crimes law no threat to religious liberty
The clergy is nervous — the hellfire-and-brimstone cultural conservative clergy, anyway. Congress’ recent vote to finally include sexual orientation in hate crimes legislation has caused near hysterics in some religious communities. Someone needs to remind these pious folks that in America, religious freedom is indeed a sacred, secure right. They remain free to demonize the immoral or ungodly, even as those lost souls are free to carry on their lives in peace as they see fit.

Cross-Dressing Student Sent Home
A Houston area student is disciplined for not following the dress code, but it's not just baggy pants or an offensive t-shirt that got him sent home.
17 year-old O'Rhonde Chapman went to school Monday morning at Nimitz Senior High School dressed in a patterned purple and white blouse, black leather pants, bold jewelry, purple high heels, and a stylish wig. But because he's really a boy, he said his principal sent him home.
