Christian Teacher Claims Faith Requires Him to Misgender

I would really like to know what verses in the bible or what part of his faith that’s written down in a book requires this of him. Also, “being enthusiastic” about something is irrelevant. I do stuff on a daily basis I’m not enthusiastic about, but I do it anyway because it’s the right thing to do or I know there will be consequences if I don’t. It is possible to do it even if he’s not enthusiastic.

A teacher is suing his school – claiming his Christian faith requires him to misgender a transgender student.

Maths teacher Joshua Sutcliffe, from Oxford, had repeatedly refused to refer to the transgender boy by his preferred gender.

The teacher was suspended from Cherwell School after the pupil – whose identity is being kept private – complained that Mr Sutcliffe repeatedly referred to him as female.

Mr Sutcliffe refused to agree to respect the pupil’s gender, and in a letter to the school insisted his faith required him to misgender the transgender boy.

Judge Overrides Transgender Military Bill

This is in no way meant to disrespect any transgender soldiers currently serving or wanting to serve in any branch of the military, but I don’t understand why you’d want to risk your life and livelihood for a country who doesn’t respect who you are as a living breathing human being. Is it that you come from a family with a history of military service? Is there some other reason I’m unable to think of? There are so many in this country, starting at the very top of the “food chain” who, quite frankly, abhor your existence, yet you’re willing to defend them. That’s pretty selfless of you, whoever you are. I hope that someday the people who hate you so much have a change of heart somehow, but I doubt it will be in my lifetime. Anyway, the good news is that you will no longer be banned from serving if you so choose.

The Trump administration must accept transgender recruits into the military by Jan. 1, a federal judge ruled Monday.

The decision prevents a ban on enlisting new transgender troops that the administration had sought to implement after an earlier injunction against the president’s order.

“The court will not stay its preliminary injunction pending defendants’ appeal,” Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia wrote Monday.

Unique Father/Daughter Transgender Duo

It’s one thing to have a support network for anyone who is transgender; most people aren’t so lucky. It’s something else entirely when your parent or child goes through the same experiences as you.

Corey Maison knew she wanted to be a girl when she was 11 years old, but was scared of disapproval from her parents. Little did she know that her mother, Erica, was coming to terms with a new gender identity of her own. Four years later, they’ve become a father-daughter duo that faces every step of their unique journey with strength and pride.

Erica, now Eric, gained the courage to confront his lifelong desire to transition from female to male after watching Corey become the young woman she had always felt like inside. Just as Corey feared familial rejection at first, Eric feared what his husband and children would think. After a year of difficult conversations, testosterone therapy, and a double mastectomy, Eric feels better than ever, and has been embraced with open arms by his loving family.

Eddie Izzard to become Member of Parliament (MP)

Another old piece of news, but I’m sharing it because I adore Eddie Izzard. I was thrilled when I got to see him in my home town last year. He rocks heels like I never could. ❤

Eddie Izzard has said that he will give up comedy to run for Parliament – hoping to become the country’s first transgender MP.

There has never been an openly transgender Member of Parliament in UK history, despite record levels of MPs who identify as lesbian, gay and bisexual.

Danica Roem: VA’s Newest State Lawmaker

Virginia needs to change its state motto to one of two new ideas:

  1. Go big or go home.
  2. Love is love is love (in the same vein as Virginia is for lovers)

They went and elected themselves a transgender woman to a position long held by a social conservative who proudly touted his role as Virginia’s “chief homophobe”. You done well Virginia and I hope Ms Roem does well by you.

Virginia’s most socially conservative state lawmaker was ousted from office Tuesday by Danica Roem, a Democrat who will be one of the nation’s first openly transgender elected officials and who embodies much of what Del. Robert G. Marshall fought against in Richmond.

The race focused on traffic and other local issues in suburban Prince William County but also exposed the nation’s fault lines over gender identity. It pitted a 33-year-old former journalist who began her physical gender transition four years ago against a 13-term incumbent who called himself Virginia’s “chief homophobe” and earlier this year introduced a “bathroom bill” that died in committee.

15 Year Old Trans Boy Suicide

Is it really so hard to simply use a different name when talking to someone? To use different pronouns? If you want someone to respect you, you need to show respect yourself. Of course I’m sure the school doesn’t feel they did anything wrong so they will not have to  live with any blame because as far as they’re concerned, there is none. Why would they accept him as a student in an all girls grammar school yet not treat him as a boy? Why didn’t they insist he go elsewhere?

A transgender teenage boy died by suicide after his school refused to accept his transition, an inquest has heard.

Leo Etherington, 15, had attended Wycombe High School – a girls’ grammar school in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.

Actor Pleas for the Safe Return of His Trans Daughter

I hope she is found safe and that no harm has come to her. 😦 However, this Open Season environment we now live in thanks to the current man who claims to be president, I doubt this will have a happy ending.

Actor Donal Logue, star of the Fox series Gotham, has sent out several heartfelt pleas for the safe return of his 16-year-old daughter Jade Logue, who is transgender, and who’s been missing since Monday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

On Tuesday, Logue reportedly tweeted that Jade was last seen at 2 p.m. in the Barclays Center/Fort Greene area of Brooklyn. The tweet, which for some reason has since been deleted, also included a description of her and of what she was wearing at the time of her disappearance, according to THR. But the actor, who’s also starred in Law and Order: SVU, ER, and Sons of Anarchy, has reached out to his daughter and/or whoever may have her several times on Twitter and on Facebook since.
