NEW YORK CITY CREATES GENDER-NEUTRAL 'X' OPTION FOR BIRTH CERTIFICATES 

NEW YORK (Reuters) - People who were born in New York City and do not identify as male or female can now opt for a third gender category of X on their birth certificates.

Mayor Bill de Blasio signed the provision into a law on Tuesday, making New York City the fifth place to do so after California, Oregon, Washington state and New Jersey. Three states and Washington, D.C., also allow gender-neutral driver licenses.

BOOK REVIEW by Monica Perez

ELEANOR AND HICK:  THE LOVE AFFAIR THAT SHAPED A FIRST LADY

This 2016 nonfiction book by Susan Quinn is the most honest and in-depth of the many books I’ve read about Eleanor Roosevelt and Lorena “Hick” Hickok.  It thoroughly explores the lives of both women from early childhood up through their deaths.  Without each other, neither woman would have become the outstanding individual she was.  This book answers the questions I had about both women that other books had left unanswered.

MOVIE REVIEW - Boy Erased

In Boy Erased, director and screenwriter Joel Edgerton tackles one of the most horrific outlets for the homophobia and bigotry against LGBTQ people that has gripped certain sectors of our society for years: the conversion therapy program in which men and women who are LGBTQ are subjected to extensive “retraining,” through techniques ranging from religious instruction to outright physical brutality in order to allegedly restore them to heterosexuality.

Lucas Hedges plays Jared Eamons, son of Baptist pastor Marshall Eamons (Russell Crowe) and his wife Nancy (Nicole Kidman). Jared’s own suppressed sexuality comes to the fore when he goes away to college, although it’s partially brought out as prelude to an ugly sexual assault, further muddying his already confused feelings.

Released in the US on Nov 2, 2018

Based on the book of the same name released in 2016

IN THE AFTERMATH OF CONVERSION THERAPY, COUNSELORS OFFER HEALING SUPPORT

In December 2014, a tractor-trailer traveling down Interstate 71 in Ohio struck and killed Leelah Alcorn.

Alcorn, who identified as transgender, had posted a suicide note on her Tumblr in which she described her isolation, desperation, and depression—feelings she blamed, in part, on the "conversion therapy" her conservative Christian parents forced her to undergo. Alcorn’s parents believed their "sick" child could be forcibly turned back into a boy and "cured" of her attraction to males.

SEX, GENDER & ORIENTATION DEFINITIONS OF TERMS

NEW DEFINITION

Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminism (TERF) - That group of feminists that claims that trans women aren't really women. They believe that the only real women are those born with a vagina and XX chromosomes, and that anyone born with such an arrangement is always a woman. They wish to completely enforce the classic gender binary, supporting gender essentialism and transphobia.
 


 

EXCELLENT ARTICLE by Kittredge Cherry 

PAUL THE APOSTLE: DID HIS HOMOSEXUALITY SHAPE CHRISTIANITY? 

Struggle against homosexual desire may have inspired Paul the Apostle to write sublime Biblical teachings on unconditional love and inclusivity — and also a few "clobber passages" used by anti-LGBTQ bigots.

Both Paul's sense of unworthiness and his appreciation for God's grace may have the same unexpected cause: Some scholars believe that Paul was a celibate homosexual man trying to reconcile faith and same-sex attraction. This may have been the "thorn in the flesh" that God refused to remove despite his prayers.

DO GAYS CAUSE HURRICANES?

Pat Robertson, founder of the Christian Coalition, recently warned Orlando, Florida, that it was courting natural disaster by allowing gay pride flags to be flown along its streets. "A condition like this will bring about ... earthquakes, tornadoes, and possibly a meteor," he said, apparently referring to his belief that the presence of openly gay people incurs divine wrath and that God acts through geological and meteorological events to destroy municipalities that permit gay people the same civil liberties as others. (Robertson also warned Orlando about terrorist bombs, suggesting the possibility that God may also employ terrorists.)
