LGBT: Transgender rights not simply gay rights
There is a systematic ploy to erase the transgender community, experiences and lives. The ubiquitous actions that are slowly expunging transgender people from our civilisation and their pernicious nature are weighing heavily on the transgender community.

The groundhog survey
At this year's Creating Change conference, a new report came out from the National Center for Transgender Equality and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, which hosted the confab. The report, titled "Injustice at Every Turn," includes responses from nearly 6,500 people. A press release touts it as, "the first large-scale national study of discrimination against transgender and gender non-conforming Americans, and paints a more complete picture than any prior research to date."

Dr Phil Doesn't Want 'Confused' Boys to Play with Girls' Toys
I don't particularly like Dr. Phil's brand of pop psychology, which is more focused on being normal than it is on being happy. No matter how many times he asks "How's that working for you?" it's fairly clear that he hardly cares if the people who ask him for help are actually happy and is more concerned with telling people to be normal based on a very American bourgeois narrative of How Life Works.

Me encanta ser muxhe
Existe un lugar en México, en esa franja de tierra conocida como el istmo de Tehuantepec, donde las travestis, llamadas muxhes como una derivación de la palabra mujeres, ocupan un lugar destacado en la organización familiar, en la sociedad y además tienen un día protagónico en noviembre, en la festividad de Las Velas, donde todo sucede gracias a ellas. Esta especie de paréntesis en la transfobia generalizada si bien no es un verdadero paraíso, en muchos detalles se le acerca bastante.
