They just had a great item on Sixty Minutes interviewing a person born with a woman's body, and a man's gender ID.  It was really open and frank.  He said one thing he hasn't decided yet is if he wants to get pregnant.  He was on the women's swim team at Harvard, and then switched to the men's.. You can probably go to the CBS web site for 60 Minutes, and watch it there.

I am so glad the transgender issue is finally hitting the fan and is getting the attention and much needed discussion it deserves among the general public, albeit through these horrible bathroom bills.  Most people are ignorant on this topic but are now being forced to confront and deal with an issue that has been sorely neglected for far too long. 

Even within the LGBT community, we have often thrown the T's under the bus to advance only LGB causes.  I've even seen arguments on LGBT forums that if we include the T's in our cause, it would only hold us back and slow down our own progress.  Baby steps, after all.  We'll include the T's next time....once we've gotten ours first.

This type of thinking and strategy is appalling to me.  As it all boils down, we are dealing with issues of human rights and discrimination.  That's why human rights should never be voted on or dispensed in stages.  We either all have equality or we are hypocrites. 

I am impressed by the growing backlash against the states that have enacted these discriminatory laws.  The main focus has finally fallen upon the transgendered community which has been denied an equal voice and a place at the table for too long.  I'd like to say that I hope this moment in time is their "Stonewall."  But of course the irony in that comparison is downright tragic.     

On a similar topic, you may be familiar with Dr. Darrel Ray and his "Secular Sexuality" podcast.  He recently had a very interesting and insightful guest on his show who wonderfully explained the concepts of human sexuality, gender and identity.  I strongly recommend you give it a listen.  I wish it could be widely presented to the general public, as it's like taking a class in Sexuality 101.

On the other hand, those very puritanical fundamentalist demagogues might be the most sorely disappointed. The Bible belt tends to have the highest porn use statistics.

Loren, I bet the puritanical fundamentalist demagogues will consider that a victory. I agree it is a hoot!
Comment by Loren Miller on April 12, 2016 at 11:18am

Get this!  The online porn site xhamster.com has announced that they're cutting off access to sites in North Carolina until the anti-LGBT bill is rescinded!  HuffPost just reported on it here.

What a HOOT!

Im not hopeful about the politicians, preachers, and
hate mongers. I don't beleive they are believe themselves. They say and do what they say and do because it is useful. It's as if, when you want to distract your dog, you say "Charlie - over there! A squirrel!"

Mississippi continues to get more and more much deserved flack for passage of HB 1523, as reported by this piece in the Daily Kos.  Do you suppose the legislators will wake up and smell the coffee when their revenue from corporate sources is threatened?

I am somewhat dubious, but hopeful.

Planting Peace has put up some terrific billboards in Mississippi:

[Jesus speaking] Guys, I said I hate FIGS and to LOVE THY NEIGHBOR and in North Carolina:

Welcome to NORTH CAROLINA. Due to our stance on LGBT RIGHTS, please set your clock back 100 years(images from Joe.My.God.)

The Funny or Die piece NAILED it.  I hope that bill nails Mississippi ... in the WALLET.
