Also, I kissed a random stranger.

#^Alabama City Approves Ordinance Imprisoning Trans People Who Use Public Bathrooms
The Oxford, Alabama, city council unanimously approved an ordinance on Tuesday that bars trans people from using any public bathroom that doesn’t match the sex indicated on their birth certificate. Because changing one’s birth certificate is difficult in many states (including Alabama) and impossible in others, the measure effectively proscribes trans people in Oxford from using any bathroom outside of their house. Trans people who violate the ordinance may be imprisoned for up to six months.

Kete Foy shared this.Show all 5 replies@email@example.com Sounds like civil disobedience time. Time for everyone in the area that supports Trans rights to remove all gender designations from all bathrooms.. And keep doing it till the bonehead bigots get the message.
>> Benjamin Cook:
That isn't really true, though. They must use the designated bathroom for their sex, just like everyone else.”
Which means that you're going to have extremely female looking people risking harassment in men's bathrooms and extremely male looking people making everybody else unconfortable in women's bathrooms?
That doesn't look like a good outcome for anybody.
(And probably also a risk of harassment in women's bathrooms and unconfortableness men's bathrooms, but I believe the other way around is going to happen more often)

#^Less than Zero, More than One — Anti fiction
You started from the position of being a bunch of cells to being a living, breathing person, born into a family that has a history of its own problems and tragedies, and raised to follow whatever beliefs your parents and family instilled upon you. Your brain then goes through a feedback loop as it tries to build a worldview for itself, scrambling to put pieces together from experiences, anecdotes, and surroundings.

2016-03-28T18:34:39Z via deadsuperhero.com To: PublicIt's pretty messed up that dogmatic organizations can walk around with seemingly legitimate names for people to cite to lawmakers. There's a very real and very chilling sense of cause-and-effect here.
The "American College of Pediatricians" is a hate group with fewer than 200 members
The ACP is a homophobic group that uses its deceptive name to tell lawmakers that trans kids have a mental disorder that's just a phase that'll go away with time, and that the high suicide rate among trans people is caused by surgical procedures rather than discrimination.
2016-03-24T21:53:18Z via deadsuperhero.com To: PublicThe fearmongering regarding trans people using public bathrooms that match up with their sense of gender identity is disgusting and absurd.
The people trying to push these bills attempt to create a cartoonish caricature of what they think transgender people even are: some pervert in a bathroom wearing a dress in a Looney Tunes-like act to victimize "real women" and "real men".
It's civic oppression, and invasive to the point that it practically encourages checking a person's gender at the door to see if their physical appearance matches up to artificial expectations of gender. Let me tell you, there are going to be lots of false positives with that kind of criteria.
#^Kansas Bill Would Pay Students A $2,500 Bounty To Hunt For Trans People In Bathrooms
With only two weeks left in the Kansas legislation session, state lawmakers have introduced a pair of bills that would prohibit transgender students from using restrooms that match their gender. The “Student Physical Privacy Act” would apply not only to public schools, but all public universities in the state as well, guaranteeing that anyone who saw someone transgender in the bathroom could sue their school for $2,500 for every time that it happened.
The complementary bills (SB 513 and HB 2737) declare in no uncertain terms that transgender students are going to harm other students just by using the same facility alongside them. “Allowing students to use restrooms, locker rooms and showers that are reserved for students of a different sex will create potential embarrassment, shame, and psychological injury to students,” they read.
