MUY MUJER, la película más travesti de 2011; opera prima de Luis Escobar "Diossa"
Partiendo de esta expresión que da título a la película, expresión nacida y mantenida mayoritariamente en ambientes gays, llegamos al quid de la historia de este relato cinematográfico. Sin llegar a desvelar el argumento, podemos hablar de una narración audiovisual donde la ambigüedad se convierte en dueña y señora de los personajes, y los equívocos y enredos nos llevarán a un desenlace divertido e inesperado.

Raising (Potentially) Trans Children
Arwyn at Raising My Boychick has a good post up about an event in Portland in the US called Transgender Child Awareness Week run by TransActive, a group for trans/gender-nonconforming children in the Pacific Northwest. What I like best about this post is that she’s moved beyond acceptance into radically transforming the way she parents by incorporating the possibility from the start that her child might be trans, and that this is perfectly fine.

Dress rules established for transsexuals in military
As U.S. politicians continue to debate whether to let gays serve openly in the American military, the Canadian Forces have issued a new policy detailing how the organization should accommodate transsexual and transvestite troops specifically. Soldiers, sailors and air force personnel who change their sex or sexual identity have a right to privacy and respect around that decision, but must conform to the dress code of their “target” gender, says the supplementary chapter of a military administration manual.

Pay attention to this debate
Question: When your little girl goes to the public washroom at the shopping mall and she sees a man in there, how does she know if it's an "innocent" transgender, or the next Russell Williams -- a rapist and killer?
How does your little girl know the difference before it's too late?
Why are sexually confused Canadians trying to get the legal right for men to use female washrooms and women to use men's washrooms?

Ladies Professional Golf Association Is Part of Wicked Gay Agenda Now, Says Area Wingnut
Outrage!
For years we’ve been seeing “test cases” of homosexuals pushing the legal envelope to force their degenerate lifestyle choice on the rest of us. Periodically we read about homosexuals suing small business owners—often Christian small business owners—for not bowing to the homosexuals’ demands, whatever they may be. These test cases are getting more and more outrageous, and now we have one of the most over-the-top examples yet of homosexuality gone wild, and it’s certainly no surprise that it comes out of San Francisco.
