The discussion about "TERF" vs FTM and the origin of the term and concept will be continued in the Red Zone. I will start a thread for further discussion pro or against.

Default Diva Magazine responds firmly and clearly against the LRA

Diva magazine, the UK's only (I think) magazine aimed at lesbian and bi women, has spoken out against the shameful activities of the transphobic group calling themselves the "Lesbian Rights Alliance"
http://www.divamag.co.uk/Diva-Magazi...-speak-for-us/

I can say that from personal experience, as well as keeping a look out for items relating to trans issues, that it's clear that, at least in the UK, the LRA and those of like mind are but a tiny minority, and their agenda is firmly rejected by the vast majority of both lesbians and feminists.

From the news headlines this morning, I read the latest article on how the current administration is trying to undo law on the books concerning Trans people in the greater LGBTQ community (see link below).

This policy change would mean that intersex people would no longer officially exist.

I think you are so correct, Cheryl.

The latest attacks levied against members of the greater LBGTQ community is very concerning and deeply worrisome.

I wondered what Dapper, Jesse or TheOddz or Anya (or other members of our community) might post concerning this issue and I came up with an excellent resource for press coverage on Trans Issues for members of our online community.

1) The Advocate


and...

2) Here is an recent press release by The Advocate, covering what Trans members are doing locally and at national levels of press coverage.

Default The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association Condemns Discriminatory Policy in the US

I am so proud of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association*; they're speaking up loud and clear against recent proposed changes to legislation involving trans and intersex folk in the USA, and calling for other sports bodies to speak up too:

In Aust this has just been launched,to combat the same battle that is happening in the USA.
SAGE,won the high court battle for non gender specific birth certificates and passports.
The Norrie case.

Also in 2011,we won our case for me to get M,on my birth certificate,without having to be steralised "hysterectomy",although 3 yrs ago it was removed,due to ovarian cancer.

FILE - Reigning champion Patricia Manuel, of Commerce, Calif., competes in a 132-pound division at the 2010 USA boxing national championships, July 15, 2010, in Colorado Springs, Colo. Saturday night, Manuel, a transgender male, won his first professional bout.



A 33-year-old boxer entered the history books Saturday.

Pat Manuel is the first transgender male to fight professionally in the United States.

In a unanimous decision, Manuel was declared the winner in a fight against Mexican super-featherweight Hugo Aguilar in Indio, California.

“I’m a professional boxer now,” Manuel told the Los Angeles Times.

Saturday was not Manuel’s first foray into the boxing ring, however.

Olympic trials

He competed as a female in the 2012 Olympic trials for the London Games. A shoulder injury after just one fight dashed his Olympic dreams of competing in the first Olympic boxing tournament for women.

The end of one dream allowed him to pursue another dream he had held even longer — transitioning from a female to a male.

After months of hormone replacements and surgery, Manuel was ready to enter the ring again, but this time as a male.

California boxing authorities were not sure about issuing Manuel a boxing license. That all changed, however, when the International Olympic Committee ruled before the 2016 Rio Games that female-to-male transgender athletes could compete “without restriction.”

California license

California issued Manuel a license.

Aguilar, Manuel’s opponent Saturday, learned only two days before the fight about Manuel’s transition.

“It doesn’t change anything for me,” Aguilar said. “In the ring, he wants to win and I want to win, too.”

I have, maybe a handful of times, but I do know what you are speaking about!

However on the subject of trans people "non exisiting" I don't see it happening, native tribes to this day still acknowledge their members who are two spirit, I am thankful mine does!

The mental health establishment and health care systems is failing everyone, but its failing more on lgbtqi individuals and indigenous people as well.

Is there any single group that's being served properly by the medical/psychiatric community, not lgbtq, not cis-folk, not bipoc?

Medical workers are simply exhausted. I can't imagine having to be a nurse through a 2+ year long pandemic. Barely made it through a 10 day hurricane. I truly have no clue. My hat is off to all of those professionals.
