Transsexual basketball scout wins praise as Turkey's '14th Giant Man'
Turkish basketball star Hidayet Türkoğlu drew loud chants of “Hido, Hido” during the 2010 FIBA World Basketball Championship, and the crowd roared when Kerem Tunçeri made a last-minute lay-up against Serbia to take Turkey into the finals.
Fans made their love for Turkey’s “12 Giant Men” abundantly clear during the championship event. Also praised was a 13th man, coach Bogdan Tanjevic. But another person responsible for the team’s success, the person who discovered and trained some of the stars of the Turkish national basketball team, was not present in that crowd.
This 14th giant is Leyla Çalışkan, a famous talent scout for Turkish basketball, and a male-to-female transsexual.

Une journée normale dans la vie normale d’une transsexuelle normale
Comme chaque jour normal, une transsexuelle normale se lève le matin pour aller travailler. Comme chaque matin devant sa glace elle remercie le seigneur de lui avoir donné un travail. Serte ce travail lui permet a peine de subvenir à ses besoins et même si elle doit travailler dans un domaine qui ne va pas avec ses diplômes elle ne fait que se dire la chance qu’elle a d’avoir ce travail. Normal puisque une transsexuelle dans un Liban hétéro-normatif ne peut être autre que prostituée sinon danseuse de un cabaret ce qui la ramène aussi à se prostituer.

Mahsa was strangled, and the police found out that her brothers were perpetrators. In addition the brothers stole money they found on her.
