@TFA - thanks for posting that! It's a move in the right direction. Somehow, I think Thailand is ahead of a lot of countries in transgender issues. I read that the country is a center for transgender reassignment surgery. here. here. Probably not perfect, but better than some other countries. From that second link, At present both M-F and F-M transsexuals can live openly in Thai society. They are relatively safe and are not subjected to violence. Nowadays, young people in schools and university students openly show their gender dysphoric tendencies. As their parents seem to accept it, these young people are not subjected to seek help from psychologists or psychiatrists. Moreover, transsexuals receive regular coverage from the mass media such as in television news, programs and the press. They are celebrities in various professions like entertainers, film stars, models, make-up artists and transsexual cabaret show girls. Among these are a well known singer, a boxer, Thailand's volleyball champion, and the winner of the World's Transsexual Beauty Contest.
As a flight attendant myself, this news story caught my eye.
Thai "ladyboy" flight attendants take to the skies
From the article:
"This is the beginning of the acceptance of transsexuals in Thailand, giving the opportunity for us to work in various fields."
"Maybe in the future we can get any job that transsexuals never did before, such as police, soldiers or even pilots."
Conservative Republican mayor of Southhaven Mississippi could have stayed in the closet if not for those purchases in a gay sex store, using taxpayer dollars.... oops. There IS this thing called "cash", but there's also a thing called "not being a damn hypocrite".
Hitchens was a genuine hero. I miss him already. My life is better for his having lived.
Janice Daniels, mayor of Troy Michigan, gets raked over the coals for her homophobic Facebook post and her pseudo-apology. I loved watching this.
OK, I'm not a "New York"y kind of guy, but in the absence of a remake of "A very beary christmas", or Vin Deisel wearing a pear of moose antlers, this will have to do:
UN Official: Stop persecuting LGBT people. boston.com
The U.N.'s top human rights official urged countries Thursday to abolish legal discrimination against gays, including the death penalty for consensual sex, days after the U.S. government said it would use foreign aid and diplomacy to promote gay equal rights.
I honestly never imagined there would be this kind of support. Not in my life. Plenty of bad things still happening, of course, but this is amazing.
@Dallas, that's a moving story and article. Lots of food for thought.
Standing up and testifying to openly homophobic mayor of Troy Michigan....
