You Think Pronouns Are The Issue?

Cemia “Ci Ci” Dove, also known as Carl Acoff Jr., was a transgender woman killed by someone, brutally, in Cleveland, Ohio. Acoff’s body “was stabbed repeatedly and dumped into a pond, tethered to a block of concrete.” An intentional killing, obviously. The killer did not want anyone to find Ms. Acoff’s body. I will “speculate” that a Man […]

Repeat a Lie Often Enough, It Becomes True

In another lifetime, when I was young, I was very active in the effort to amend Maryland’s anti-discrimination law to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation.

If you repeat a lie often enough, does it become true?

Americans gave up the idea-or tried to, or pretended to-that there are certain characteristics and qualities that are essentially black and essentially white a long time ago.

Oh, Yes, “Creating Change”

You might recall that last year, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force waited until the last possible moment to remember that L in NGLTF stands for Lesbians. As a result of pressure put on NGLTF by Lesbian activists, NGLTF begrudgingly allowed Lesbians to have our own caucus for actual lesbians (that is, women-born-women, not […]

Show Up, Pariahs

Activist Meredith Moise and the Baltimore Guardian Angels organized  the gathering to condemn anti-gay violence in response to the beating of Kenni Shaw, a gay man,  in East Baltimore on Christmas Day.

Just Say No to Transing Kids

“I’m for health coverage for trans ops and sexual reassignment surgery from age 8.” – Roseanne Barr. No. Just no. Mutilating children and “delaying puberty” when society is “the problem” is child abuse. You can read why transing children is child abuse here.

Dear Trans Women: Now Would Be A Good Time To Support Women

With Gay Guys Like These…

Meet Peter Jenkins. Peter is a Gay Go Getter profiled in the Louisiana version of that Examiner newspaper in May for his go-getterness.  Peter wanted to attend a Victory Fund Training as a start to his dream of being the first openly-gay Louisiana legislator! But it’s not just glory he seeks.  Peter Jenkins is concerned about important issues. […]
