DECEPTION – JAMIE LEE


MY OPINION – FACT OR CRAP

We in the Transgendered Community, have come a long way, recently, in Education, Laws, Acceptance,

and freedom, by leaps and bounds!

EVEN WITH THE LABELS AND TERMS USED

A few years ago, naturally born women were called “Genetic Females” and we were referred as Cross-dressers, in the Transgendered Community,   I and some others are called “Transsexuals”

Then an intense study was done by the Medical and Scientific Community, and they found that,

Trans-sexuality is caused by “Genetics” !

Hmmmmm.  Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy !  Now I have the reason I was born this way, an answer if been seeking all my life!

AND IT POINTS OUT,  THAT I AM A FEMALE BORN IN THE WRONG BODY!!!!!!

(INDIVIDUALS IN THIS COMMUNITY CAN PLAY WITH VERBAGE ALL THEY WANT}

BUT THE FACT ARE WE ARE NOT, NATAL WOMEN !!!!!

When the above Study was completed, it then allowed us transsexuals to refer to ourselves as Genetic Woman, Justifiably so!

So this changes the terminology in the following manner:

1. A naturally born woman is now referred to as a “NATAL WOMAN”

2. Transsexual woman are and can be referred to as “GENETIC WOMAN”

BUT, WE ARE NOT NATAL WOMEN, AND TO DECEIVE ANY ONE, IN PUBLIC, ESPECIALLY IN THE TRANSGENDERED COMMUNITY IS WRONG !!!!!!!!!   And especially to rely on the ignorance of the public, where they don’t understand the terms, into thinking we are “NATAL FEMALES”

I EVEN TOOK MY OPINION TO THE NEXT STEP, AND CALLED A FEW OF MY LONG TERM FRIENDS IN OUR COMMUNITY AND ASKED THEIR OPINION!

HERE IS WHAT THEY SAID:

1. They agreed with what I said above.

2.  They said it was ok to identify ourselves in public, as being born female and on the internet, etc, which I agree with.

3.  We all agreed. that we can refer to us as females, but the moment it becomes a friendship with anyone, we need to be honest and truthful, and not deceive them into thinking we are “NATALLY BORN WOMAN”

AND I SAY, EXPECIALLY WHEN A PERSON IS TRANSGENDERED, AND PLAYS WITH WORDS, TO DECEIVE US, AS SISTERS IN THE COMMUNITY, ABOUT THEIR TRANSITION!

IT IS IGNORANT AND DISRESPECTFULL TO US AND TO NATAL WOMAN!

NOTICE:

I AND MY CRYSTAL CONNECTION IS ABOUT EDUCATION AND SUPPORT!  I AM GOING TO BE BOLD ENOUGH TO SAY , I KNOW EVERYTHING THERE IS ABOUT THE TRANSGENDERED COMMUNITY.

I APPOLOGIZE FOR MY BRASHNESS SOMETIMES, BUT I THINK THAT COMES FROM,  BEING EX-LAW ENFORCEMENT FOR 30 YEARS.  IF ANYONE DISAGREES WITH ANY STORY, STATEMENT, OR OPINION SEEN ON THE “CRYSTAL CONNECTION”   I INVITE YOU TO CORRECT ME, OR SAY WHERE I AM WRONG

Thank you – Jamie Lee

OH, by the way, I want to warn you!

Don’t ever get into a pissing contest with a skunk!  You will always lose!

Never try to “BULLSHIT a “BULLSHITTER”

ME-MY LONELINESS

From Childhood’s hour I have not been as others were – I have not seen as others saw – I could not bring my passions from a common spring!   EDGAR ALLEN POE

    LONELY, AFRAID, ANGRY, CONFUSED, SECLUDED, INCARCERATED, DEPRESSED, TORTURED, TRAUMATIZED, FRUSTRATED,       MENTALLY AND EMOTIONALLY EXAUSTED, AND INCOMPLETE!

These are all real words to me!  When was the last time that you felt them all at the same time?

SEXUALITY & GENDER:  OUR SEXUALITY HAS TO BE WITHOUT FAULT!  IT MUST FUNCTION IN STRICT CONFORMITY WITH ALL CUSTOMS & LAWS!  NO MATTER HOW ILLOGICAL THEY ARE AND HOW MUCH HYPOCRICY THEY MAY GIVE RISE!

To be honest I am sick and tired, I am exhausted, I am fed up, I am pissed off,  by constantly being pissed on.  I am tired of the “Me Generation”  I am tired of constantly trying to prove myself to everyone, but not to myself.   Knock, Knock, Knocking on Heaven’s Door!  I am tired of hatred, discrimination, racism, hatred of cultures and religion, intolerance and deception!  I am weary of surviving.  It seems we are constantly being controlled by the Educated Derelicts of our World

.My philosophy is:

 ” It’s better to be, tried by 12, than carried by 6″ 

I am dealing with constant P.T.S.D, from my 30 years of Law-enforcement and going through what I did, dealing with the Dredges Of Society!  Standing on the Edge of the Abyss, to PROTECT YOU!   After being spun, folded and mutated, by the very Society that shuns ME!  I PLACED MY LIFE,  IN DANGER, EVERY DAY, FOR THE SAME ASS HOLES, WHO WON’T ACCEPT ME AS, WHO I AM, AND WHO I WAS BORN TO BE  !!!!!!!!

YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF

YOU ARE PATHETIC

AND NOW ABOUT MY CHILDREN

I raised my children with the following expectations and  Philosophy’s :  Stand up for yourselves, and never be taken advantage of.  Be the best you can be and anything!  Failing is OK, get up and go again.  Have a understanding of Morals, especially, your own!  Do not be a Racist, sexist or hypocrite!  Always have an open mind.  Respect people, places and things, as you want to be respected.  Live your life with integrity.  Make your own, children proud to follow in your footsteps.    DO NOT Discriminate!  Never show intolerance.  Always care about the feelings of others.  Respect cultures, religion and humanistic values!  If you don’t understand, educate your self before you make any decision!   For the purpose of this post I am writing about my expectations.  I was gifted and fortunate in life, to have a wife that believed in the same values and expectations.

Most importantly, we taught them about treating people compassionately, with their diversities, whether, it be handicaps, physical abnormalities, or skills, abilities and education !   Respect other peoples opinions and views……..!

And to be honest!  I am pretty damn proud of them!  Where they have gone, with their Careers, relationships, and goals!   I couldn’t ask for anything more, at least at the time, I felt that way.

YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THAT THE INTENSITY, PAIN AND SUFFERING, ALONG WITH ACCEPTANCE, UNDERSTANDING AND TREATEMENT OF US AS TRANSSEXUALS, IS GENERATIONAL.  WE AS OLDER TRANSEXXUALS, HAVE HAD TO GO THROUGH,  MORE STRUGGLES TO TRANSITION, THEN THE YOUNGER, TRANSGENDERED COMMUNITY…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….!

They can transition into their lives!  We have lived our lives, under constant fear, that we would lose the most precious things to us, our parents, our brothers & sisters, our Wives, our relationships, our significant others, our loved ones, our friends, and our children.  You see, we must transition into a life that we have already built, through our own trials and tribulations, fears and expectations.  And our own self-Acceptance.   It is not easy, in fact it is a nightmare, which no typical human being could fathom, or understand.

Now, back to the topic of my children!   Since the moment and time that I told my children that I was a transsexual, does anyone think that I was stupid enough not to understand the dynamics, that came along with that!  First was their reaction, and acceptance of me.  When I told each one of my two children the were in their late 20’s, my son and my daughter.  They both embraced me at that moment, and said it was OK.  It was one of the most beautiful moments of my life.

BUT, did they think for a moment, that I wasn’t aware, and conscious, concerning their ability’s and capabilities to understand?  Of course I was, I had to live through all the dilemma of exposing myself to them.  I knew, if I did, when they were children, that I could have changed their lives in so many ways.  Tragic in many ways.   Do they think I didn’t understand, especially back then, how they would have been ridiculed, laughed at, embarrassed, and humiliated by their friends and peers, knowing that their father was a Transsexual?   I did! Ever so intensely and painfully.  I did what any parent would do!  Protect them!  Maybe I was wrong, maybe I was right, but it was a choice.   Plus, how could I expect them, or anyone else to understand,  this shit back then, when I didn’t understand myself.   My God what a dilemma!  I felt like a mentally ill,  freak of nature.   Since childhood!

NOW MY CHILDREN ARE IN THEIR 30’s, MARRIED WITH CHILDREN. DECENT HUSBANDS AND WIFES, JOBS THAT HAVE PROFESSIONALISM AND INTEGRITY.   THEY ARE LEARNING ABOUT THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF LIFE, AND THE COLERATAL DAMAGE, OF  SICK AND UNMORALISTIC SOCIETY, WHICH IS ALL WE HERE ABOUT , DISCRIMINATION, INTOLERANCE,  AND DEATH OF INNOCENT CHILDREN ND ADULTS.   THE FILTH AND THE DEGRIDATION,  OF THE DREDGES OF SOCIETY, WHICH IS ON TV, AND PROMOTED FOR THE ENJOYMENT, OF SOME SORT OF PATHETIC AUDIENCE!   RE: THE JERRY SPRINGER SHOW, THE USE OF INNOCENT CHILDREN , AND ALL THE REST,  TO GAIN RATINGS, FOR MONETARY GAIN! AND ARE CAPABLE OF UTILIZING INNOCENT CHILDREN!

We all are reaching our toleration, of greedy and filthy Politicians, who only have their own hidden Agendas.  We are in a war, with people and Cultures we don’t understand.  We tend to feel that WE as Americans, are the only, life forms that deserve to exist.  Economy sucks, gas prices suck, The bullshit that is fed to us by our own Government sucks. Gun control sucks, because there IS an easy answer, DO BACKGROUND CHECKS!  When a Convicted Felon, Is found in possession, incarcerate him for 50 years.  Or better yet, pry the gun from “HIS Cold Dead Hands”  Don’t penalize the respectful, law abiding Citizens!   Give more power to deal with Metal health, Disorders who are capable of hurting their selves, or especially others!!

Criminals have rights! VICTIMS HAVE NONE!  Holy shit!  Something is wrong with us!

GO, figure that all the Pharmaceutical Company’s have jumped aboard the band wagon to make money at the demise of people.  There is a pill now available that cures any ailment, and at the same time can destroy, your liver, kidney’s, make you nauseous, dizzy, suicidal, and potentially a basket comatose case!

I love the one about Cialis, and Viagra!   Guys, this IS you love potion of today.  You no longer have to use you brain to get turned on,  by a beautiful woman!  You can just pop this magical, pill.  That will put a mile on her face!  Jesus Christ, you even have the propensity to have a, 4 hour erection! 

I would have been happy in my life, to have one last for more that 15 minutes. Damn,  4 hours, I would have been floating down a river, with a smile on my face, yelling “OPEN THE DRAW BRIDGE”!                    This may be funny, but it is grossly pathetic……………..!

SO BACK TO MY CHILDREN!  I THINK I HAVE GOTTEN THE POINT, ACROSS,  OF WHAT,  I WAS SAYING ABOVE !  AT LEAST I HOPE!

What should I expect of my Children, in my life right now?   And,  should I expect anything?

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT,  FROM MY CHILDREN ?      I AT LEAST EXPECT THE FOLLOWING:  

1.    Respect

2.   I expect that they, at least research on occasion,  and learn about the dynamics of the Transgendered Community.

3.    I expect that they begin to understand,  what I have given up in my life, to give them ONE!

4.    I expect that they, don’t ignore me and have a conversation once and awhile !

5.    I expect that they at least try to begin to understand who I am, and the genetics, surrounding it.

6.    I expect that they show courage.

7.    I expect they don’t shun me……….

8.   I expect that they don’t, demand a pity party!

(Along the way,  I may edit this list on occasion, and add things}

I know that they are afraid of acknowledging me, because they are embarrassed and afraid of, what their, peers, co-workers, and others,  will say to them!  And I don’t expect them to allow me to rain on their Parade, either.  But at least, love and respect me, for having the courage to do what I am doing.

I WILL NOT ACKNOWLEDGE THAT TELLING THEM ABOUT ME BEING TRANSSEXUAL,  IS TOO STRESS FULL, FOR THEM!   THEY ARE IN THEIR 30’S, THIS SURE ISN’T THE FIRST TIME, THEY HEARD ABOUT THE GAY, LESBIAN AND TRANSGENDERED PEOPLE……….HOWEVER, THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IT CAME CLOSE TO HOME !   AND BY THE WAY, IF IT IS TOTALLY TRUE THAT TRANSSEXUALITY,  IS DUE TO GENETICS, THEN THEY HAD BETTER, COME TO TERMS WITH IT,  FOR THEIR OWN CONCERNS,  AS WELL AS THEIR CHILDREN’S !!

JAMIE LEE’S NEWS DESK – TELL IT LIKE IT IS JAMIE ! MY OPINION……………………………


Robert Kosilek, then 39, was already transitioning to become a woman when he killed his wife, Cheryl McCaul, during an argument. He strangled her to death, nearly decapitating her in the Mansfield, Massachusetts, home they still shared. Panicked, he dragged her body to his car, and drove to the Emerald Square Mall in North Attleboro, about 20 minutes away. He left his wife’s corpse in the mall parking lot and fled the state. Police caught up to him in New Rochelle, New York.

In 1990, Kosilek, who was then known by his birth name Robert Kosilek, strangled his wife Cheryl  McCaul. Kosilek was sentenced to serve a life sentence without parole

Earlier this morning I again,  saw a story on a blog concerning this pathetic ass-hole.  And I replied with the following,  on the blog:

I swore to myself that I would never revisit this story, and darn it, here I am!  Let me expose myself a little for the purpose of this story.  Something that I have never done before!  I am in my 60’s, married for 40 years,  We have two wonderful children.

Since I was born, I knew that I was different; however, I was a coward, who didn’t have the Courage to be!  I went into the Military, to make myself a man in everyone’s eyes.. When I got out of the Military, I went into Law Enforcement, to be a man’s man, and to drive the feminine feelings from me!   Approximately 30 years ago, I went into State Parole.

In the course of my career, I have arrested and dealt with, Murder’s, Rapists, Sex Offenders, Domestic Violence, and much, much more dealing with the dredges of our Society and the collateral damage which the left behind.  I have stood on the edge of the Abyss; I have faced death and guns being pointed at me. a multitude of times, as well,  as me pointing it at Criminals.  I am burned out and exhausted.  We are part of a Society where Criminals have rights and victims HAVE NONE!  How sad, because of the “bleeding hearts” of our world.

All these years, I hide my core, from people and including myself.  The feminine feelings in me never subsided; they always grew like an “Abscessed Tooth”.  A year before I retired I took my service revolver and was going to kill myself. Basically, because of Society, which I protected, could not accept diversity!  At that point I decided I was going to survive, and work on, who I was meant to be with “two spirits”

At that point, I told wife.  And to this day she is at my side transitioning along with me.  I am trying to have my children accept me as a “Genetic Transsexual Woman”  If you wish to follow my struggles, visit my blog, which is about my life!  But some of the readers, must understand that is because of your acceptance of me as who I am, that I suffer more!

First of all, with the upmost respect, I wish to address a statement that the Attorney made:

“It is a complex issue, no doubt. I have issues with transsexual surgery simply because it is such an assault on the body. The folks I know who have had it seem to suffer from a lot of health problems because of the forced changes to the physical body which is different than the orientation of the mind. Oddly, before we had surgery for this, people learned to cope. I often think that modern medicine runs way beyond what the mind (we’re still pretty primal, folks) can deal with”.

Council, you took an oath to represent!  I took an oath to protect.  That is our difference as you well know, dealing with the “Scales of Justice”   You make the statement above that you have issues with us! Why is it your right to make that assessment?  Sure it definitely is a surreal assault on a body.  But can you understand that it should be my choice, to feel free in my body, soul and Spirit?  I have been on hormones, spiro and estrogen for over 8 years.  There still is no statistics available, showing what effects it has on a “Natal Male’s Body” But that is my choice!  Even if I die!  Because it makes me feel free of my OWN incarceration as a Woman!  So I do feel that your statement is not fair until you educate yourself into our dynamics!   Just my opinion Council.

Now, back to the point of the story, and that pathetic S.O.B.  I think everyone can see why this is a sensitive situation for me…………….If the readers here will allow me I will address some of the reasons below:

  1.  I believe 100& with Councils statement that this is a manipulative ploy by this person. I have seen it many times in the Criminal Justice System.
  2. It is a fact that Criminals, find reasons to change their mundane lives in their 4 X 8, cells.  Especially if they are in protective custody!  They look for reasons to do things, whether they are true of false! To get them out for a day!
  3. Council says they don’t have the right to make the final decision in this case!  I can, I will be the Judge, jury and the executioner in this pathetic situation!  Remember, this animal, KILLED A WOMAN in the most, cold hearted manner.  Where is, her rights? The majority of transsexuals I know, honor femininity, so much, that wouldn’t ever contemplate, hurting a woman.
  4. What kind, of Society are we in, which will pay for and operation, for a Convicted Murderer, and ignore me, as a law abiding citizen?   I think this is atrocious!
  5. I could go on all day!  So I will stop with my ramblings, because I have an easy solution, which will save tax payers money!

 

Put this wonderful person, in general population, the other inmates will treat him as the woman he was meant to be.  He can be happy!  And trust me they will give him the “SRS” operation that he deserves for FREE!  Be they kill him.  But never, never, let this creep, go to a woman’s prison, because, it would be, the most degrading thing to femininity, and womanhood!  And you the reader know it !!!!!!!!      TELL IT LIKE IT IS JAMIE LEE !

A response I got so far, was from a therapist who states ”    I have issues with transsexual surgery simply because it is such an assault on the body” and agrees with the Attorney!  There was no comment about the validity of my post and my statements,  in reference to this Jack Ass below:

So now I have decided, to bring story to my TURF!  The Crystal Connection! 

But, I do want everyone to understand that Jamie Lee,  has true feelings, so I will say this:   AWE ROBERT, I am so sorry Sweetheart, for the pain you went through, while you strangled your wife, and had to go through the extreme trauma of decapitating her.  And then Sweetie, I know it bothered you to drive to a local Mall and dump her body in a parking lot!  OMG it must have been so stressful for you that day!  I wish I could just see a beautiful photo of your wife after,  you did that to her. I am sure she enjoyed the trip to the Mall with you that day, you pathetic son-of-a-bitch.   You killed a woman, something that we as Transsexuals stand for!  Femininity.  I truly wish that you could stand in front of me for one second.  And trust me, I would end your life as quickly as you took hers……………………………………………………….But I want you to know Robert,  that I wish you the best.  Love Jamie Lee

WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH OUR SOCIETY?

NO WONDER WE HAVE THE PROBLEMS THAT WE DO!

AFTER YOU READ THIS, PAY FOR MY OPERATION BECAUSE I DESERVE IT FOR BEING A LAW ABIDNIG CITIZEN!

AS WELL AS BEING IN LAW ENFORCEMENT FACING DEATH,  TO PROTECT YOU!

HOW DISCUSTINGLY SAD YOU MAKE ME FEEL !!!!!

SHAME ON YOU

JAMIE LEE

AND LASTLY, DON’T YOU EVER SAY TO ME ” I have issues with transsexual surgery simply because it is such an assault on the body”  BECAUSE, GUESS WHAT, IT IS MY DAMN CHOICE, AND IF I DIE IN THE PROCESS, THAT SO BE IT………………LET ME LIVE BEFORE YOU LET ME DIE!

BOSTON — A transgender inmate who won a court order for taxpayer-funded sex-change surgery has no medical need for further electrolysis treatments, a prisons department psychiatrist testified Monday.

Dr. Robert Diener testified during a hearing in U.S. District Court on Michelle Kosilek’s request to have additional hair-removal treatments. Diener, chief psychiatrist for the state Department of Correction, said he evaluated Kosilek in 2010 and again last month and concluded that Kosilek’s anxiety level hasn’t changed, even though she hasn’t had electrolysis treatments since 2008.

“I continue to believe that it’s not medically necessary for this patient,” said Diener, chief psychiatrist at MHM Services, Inc., a company subcontracted by the state Department of Correction to provide mental health services.

Under questioning by Kosilek’s lawyer, Diener acknowledged that he had not published any articles or conducted any research on gender-identity disorder, a diagnosis given to Kosilek. Diener also said he was told that the reason prison officials stopped giving Kosilek electrolysis after seven treatments is because it was too expensive.

Kosilek’s lawyer, Frances Cohen, said prison officials’ refusal to allow Kosilek to have additional treatments is “simply another incident of deliberate indifference” to Kosilek’s medical needs.

The department has said it discontinued the treatments after finding she had already received significant hair removal and saying her remaining hair could be removed by shaving or depilatories.

Judge Mark Wolf didn’t immediately rule on the request.

In September, Wolf ordered the state to provide sex-reassignment surgery, saying it is the only way to treat Kosilek’s “serious medical need.”

Kosilek was born male but has received hormone treatments and now lives as a woman in an all-male prison. Kosilek was named Robert when convicted in the 1990 murder of wife Cheryl Kosilek.

In his ruling, Wolf noted that Kosilek’s gender-identity disorder has caused Kosilek so much anguish that she has twice tried to commit suicide. Wolf said Kosilek “continues to suffer intense mental anguish” because she truly believes she is a woman trapped in a man’s body.

“That anguish alone constitutes a serious medical need,” Wolf wrote.

The Department of Correction has appealed Wolf’s order.

The judge also heard arguments Monday on the department’s request to put the order on hold while the appeal is pending.

Kosilek’s lawyers also asked Wolf to revise his ruling to change his use of male pronouns to female pronouns when referring to Kosilek. Wolf said he would consider the request.

 

Wis. won’t ban transgender inmate treatments

Three inmates who are male-to-female transsexuals filed suits after prison doctors stopped providing hormone treatments

The U.S. Supreme Court refused to consider reinstating a Wisconsin law that banned hormone treatments or sex-change surgeries for transgender prison inmates.

The justices today rejected the state’s appeal of a ruling that the 2006 Wisconsin law, by withholding treatments that prison doctors deem medically necessary, violated the Eighth Amendment prohibition against cruel and unusual punishments.

Three Wisconsin inmates who are male-to-female transsexuals filed suit after prison doctors, who had diagnosed them as having gender identity disorder, stopped providing hormone treatments because of the law.

“Refusing to provide effective treatment for a serious medical condition serves no valid penological purpose and amounts to torture,” the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled. “Just as the legislature cannot outlaw all effective cancer treatments for prison inmates, it cannot outlaw the only effective treatment for a serious condition” such as gender identity disorder.

Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen, in the state’s high court appeal, said gender identity disorder is a “psychological condition” and the legislature was within its authority to say treatment should be limited to “psychotherapy, antipsychotics and antidepressants.”

The Eighth Amendment “does not prohibit prison officials, prison medical personnel and, most certainly, a state legislature, from denying a small, controversial subset of the wide variety of treatment available for a particular diagnosis,” the state said in its appeal.

Medically Necessary

Lawyers for the inmates said doctors in the Wisconsin prison system were the ones who diagnosed the inmates and prescribed the hormone treatments as medically necessary.

“There was no evidence controverting the testimony of numerous witnesses that, for some people” with severe gender identity disorder, “psychotherapy or psychotropic medication alone” is “simply not effective,” lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union and the Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund said, representing the inmates.

The appeals court ruling cited evidence presented at trial that for some people hormone treatment is the most effective way to prevent severe anxiety, depression, attempted suicides or self-mutilation. The court said “severe complications,” including high blood pressure and neurological problems, may arise when patients are taken off hormone treatments.

While the case centered on hormone treatments, the Wisconsin law that was found unconstitutional also prohibits the use of state funds for sex-change surgery.

The case is Smith v. Fields, 11-561.

It’s hard to find accurate statistics on exactly how many people in the United States (or anywhere else) are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). Nonetheless, what we know for sure is that the number of people who define themselves as LGBT is rising – fast. And this has a distinct impact on the world of corrections.

“As gender identity becomes more recognized as a legitimate concern that individuals have, you are going to see more of it in corrections,” said Donald L. Leach, a Jail Risk Management Consultant based in Lexington, Kentucky.

Leach hosted a workshop at the 2010 American Jail Association conference in Portland, Oregon titled, “Sexuality in the Jail: Issues with Managing Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Intersexual and Transgender Offenders”, which primarily discussed this question: How can correctional professionals define and manage the LGBT community effectively, securely and in correspondence with the law?

This article will discuss some of the related issues that can arise in the jail or prison environment and how Leach recommends dealing with them.

Using the right terminology When dealing with sensitive issues like this, Leach notes that what might seem like a harmless slip of the tongue can quickly turn into a major liability risk. Here are a few terms you need to be aware of:

Sexual preference: The preference one shows by having sexual interest in members of the same, opposite or either sex – Gender identity: Distinctly different from sexual preference, gender identity refers the gender with which a person self-identifies. Thus, for example, it is possible for someone to be a biological male who identifies themselves as a woman and also has a sexual preference for women. – Transgender: A general term applied to a variety of individuals, behaviors and groups involving tendencies that vary from the usual gender roles – Transsexual: A more specific term for when an individual identifies with a physical sex that is different from their biological one – Intersexual: A group of conditions where there is a discrepancy between the external genitals and the internal genitals, thus providing the individual with components of both the male and female genitalia

Housing: Predator vs. prey Regardless of sexual preference and gender identity, a fundamental objective in corrections must be to “separate the predators from the prey,” Leach said.

In many facilities, he said, “we’re not doing a good enough job of separating by classification.”

In other words, an inmate’s sexual identity or preference is only important to officers in so far as it helps them to decipher whether the inmate is likely to become a victim of abuse in the facility, Leach said. They should then be housed accordingly.

“We need to eliminate all types of violence,” he said. “Identify the predators and then remove them. It’s about protecting inmates from violence, sexual or non.”

Housing: Sexual preference So, if our goal is to better protect vulnerable inmates, should we be using sexual preference as a method for classifying inmates? Leach says “no”, because knowing an inmate’s sexual preference shouldn’t affect how we house them or define whether or not they’ll be victimized.

“We don’t care what your preference is,” Leach said. “There is no sex in the jail – period.”

Leach also challenges the notion that because an inmate is sexually attracted to someone of their own sex that it means they’re going to have sexual relations while incarcerated.

“It’s not true that people will automatically couple-up,” Leach said, emphasizing that just because a man is gay, it doesn’t mean he will be attracted to all and any men.

Instead of focusing on issues of sexual preferences, Leach said, “what you look for is sexual identification”.

Housing: Sexual identity When booking offenders, Leach said, it pays tenfold to ask the incoming prisoner whether they identify as male or female, regardless of what might seem like obvious physical characteristics to you and other staffers.

For instance, if someone is clearly (from a physical standpoint) a man but claims to identify as a woman, should this affect how we house them?

The best thing to do in these situations, Leach said, is ask. First, ask the transgender or intersexual offender whether they would like to be housed with men or women. If they say “with women”, then ask the women in the housing unit if they’ll be comfortable living with a man who identifies as female. In these situations, clear communication between all parties is critical and often very effective, he said.

This is not to suggest, Leach stressed, that inmates should be allowed to choose which gender they are to be housed with. It is simply another “predator vs. prey” risk to be considered by staff.

Once all predator vs. prey risks have been evaluated and the inmate has been housed, Leach reminds staffers to make sure to document the whole process that resulted in classification and housing of the offender, thus protecting themselves from any future liability risks.

There is, however, one specific case scenario Leach said to beware of: the male inmate who claims to identify as female simply to get a chance to prey on women sexually. However, this is again an issue of predator vs. prey and should be combated through a rigorous classification system.

Who should conduct searches? Next to housing, deciding who should conduct searches is one of the most difficult tasks – and highest liability risks – correctional professionals face when dealing with LGBT inmates, according to Leach.

“What we’re looking to do is not put additional trauma on people during searches,” he said.

Obviously, an individual going through a strip search is going to experience a certain level of embarrassment and trauma – in many ways this is just the nature of being in prison. The question, Leach said, is “how much embarrassment is ok,” before staffers find themselves in legal trouble?

According to Leach, as with housing inmates by gender identity, the key to conducting searches in an unclear situation is communication. Ask the inmate if they would like to be searched by a man or a woman. Get them to clearly confirm their preference and then document the process thoroughly, thus protecting staff if the inmate chooses to claim victimization.

If the inmate isn’t sure whether a man or a woman should conduct the search, offer to have both a man and woman officer in the room, Leach said. Often this is good practice in any situation where a male inmate requests to be searched by a female.

All in all, dealing with issues of sexual preference and identity will continue to be a tricky matter for correctional professionals until clearer case law develops around the process. For now, however, here’s a recap of some of the key points given by Leach in both his presentation and interview with C1 that staffers can use to protect both themselves and the inmates:

1. Improve our methods of classification (remember to ask about gender identity) 2. Clamp down on all types of violence and any sexual relations (same-sex or not) 3. Communicate clearly with all inmates and get their feedback when making inmate housing and search decisions 4. Thoroughly document all communication and the decisions made based on it

Please feel free to post any questions regarding these issues in the comment section below and we’ll forward them on to Mr. Leach.

How to Create Self Worth     

 

 One thing transsexuals, indeed, almost all people, at all, suffer from, is a low self-esteem!

The confidence, and the empowerment of the feeling, of having value to one’s self, and to others, is greatly needed.

For a great part of my life, I have known such a deep feeling of worthlessness that it was impossible for me to imagine just what feeling good about myself would be like. I understood intellectually that such a feeling must be better than what I knew, that there must be a positive way to feel about my own existence, but I simply could not imagine how it might be achieved.  One thing I often wished for in those times was for someone to explain to me exactly how to achieve real and lasting self-worth. No one could, with simple admonishments to ‘cheer up’, or mindless brush-offs in the form of ‘you’ll get over all that in time’ being the rule.

I have learned the secret that I sought long ago, and I imagine I am not the only soul to have been so desperate simply to feel some degree of goodness about my self. Perhaps others might wish to know the mechanism by which self worth is generated. Here it is.

Self-worth depends on just a few basic factors.

The amount of achievements a person has accomplished !
The weight that the person places on those achievements !
The emotional support that the person has around them !
 
Self-worth comes greatly from feeling that one has taken a sufficient degree of useful and valid action in the world. The nature and type of that action is irrelevant. What matters is that one feels that the actions taken are both useful and valid.

By useful, the action must accomplish something that provides benefit of some sort to one’s self or to others, or both.

By valid, the action must fit within the individual’s personal ethical framework. The action must be considered appropriate, necessary, correct, proper, or acceptable to the self.

By sufficient degree of action, the amount of action taken must feel like it is enough…for now. This last point is absolutely vital, and is often a stumbling block for people. It must be incorporated into the individual that there is such a thing as having done enough for a given period of time. This may require determining real and concrete rules for action in relation to time. Vague estimates may sometime lead to a condition of feeling like one has never done enough. This is detrimental, and ultimately, destructive. One must develop a reasonable concept of effort.

One way to develop a reasonable concept of how much is enough is to truly incorporate the bromide of ‘Having Done One’s Best’. It is reasonably easy for most people, unless they are incapacitated by clinical levels of depression more suited to medication than words, to judge when they have more or less done the best that they can.

To judge that one has done one’s best, within the time available, with the available resources, and under whatever duress was ambient, is useful in learning how to determine when one has done enough. Use this tool; it is a cliché for a reason: it works.

A last part of relating to action in the world is actually remembering the things one has done, and thinking about them. Self-reflection is important to self-worth. One must make the effort to consistently, and as dispassionately as possible, reflect upon the actions one has taken. The important part here is not to fuss over the action, but to be able to feel the sheer weight of the effort. One has to actively make one’s own actions count.

Indeed, the concepts listed above for achievement can be broken down into some basic rules to observe:

Do Your Best
Do Only What You Know Is Appropriate
Remember What You Did and Reflect On It Intellectually

Self-worth is not instant. It is a process, not a thing! Self-worth is constantly being sapped and demolished by the nature of our society, and even the physics of our universe. A person is responsible for their own happiness, and also for their own self-worth. Neither can really be bought, sold, given or accepted, despite all fuss to the contrary. Self-worth, and happiness for that matter, must be CONSTRUCTED OVER TIME.

A baby cannot immediately run, but must first crawl, then walk. Self-worth cannot be truly, permanently gained overnight. At best an illusion of self-importance can be gained by fame or sudden success, but this mirage quickly fades. Lasting good feelings can only be achieved by developing a basic technique of constantly generating them.

The technique is simple and must forever be used: there is no point at which one may slack off. One must DO. Take action, small at first, then gradually greater, building up. It is that simple.

One note about the nature of action: one ALWAYS takes action. Doing nothing is also an action. The key is to do whatever one does deliberately, even if that action is to do nothing. One must make the effort to take responsibility for both action, and inaction. Always be aware that one cannot help but choose. Choice is not a privilege, it is a fact of existence.

Choose actions to take that are well within the realm of success. Successes build self-confidence, and so one must stockpile them up. The successes do not need to be great, they need to be abundant.

This is an important point. There is sometimes the confusion that one must achieve great things to feel great. This is often counterproductive, because it can lead to attempting things far out of one’s league, and thus produce ego shattering failures. It is easy to understand that abundant failure breeds self-loathing. The reverse must be understood to be true as well. Abundant successes…even small ones…gradually create self worth.

Huge successes are dramatic and can boost self worth a great deal, if briefly. However the risk of failure, is greater, and at the lowest levels of self-esteem this becomes critical. Tiny successes may seem too small to be satisfying, but over time they stockpile. Enough tiny successes can create sufficient confidence and self-knowledge to make larger action successful.
 
Even if one diligently applies all of the concepts above, it can come to naught if the drain of the environment is too great. Human beings are social creatures, we require other people -or at least other animals- and we gain much of our orientation and validation from social contact.

Other beings are our mirrors, they reflect to us what and who we are by the effect we have upon them. It must be understood, however, that not all mirrors are equal, and that some mirrors totally distort what they reflect.

It is vital to actively choose to surround oneself with worthwhile individuals.

If an individual is very lacking in self-worth, this can become a difficult issue. As social animals we hunger for company, and if we are low in self-esteem, we may feel unworthy of decent company and grateful for any attention at all. Poor quality attention, from unworthy people, is often worse than being alone for a while.

There is a fairly easy way to determine if the company one keeps is worth keeping, or should be actively avoided. Judge whether you are being raised or lowered emotionally. Does your companionship make you feel good?

If your companions consistently degrade you, if their comments and the overall emotional effect of them makes you feel bad about yourself, life, your plans and attempts at achievement, your happiness and usefulness, then your companions are destructive to you.

A worthwhile companion, a worthy friend, consistently helps to lift your spirits. This does not mean that they agree with you on everything, or support every plan you construct, rather it means that overall, they encourage rather than condemn, offer help rather than despair, and show that you are worth their time and effort, by consistent mutuality.

Unworthy people must be avoided. No matter who they are, what their relationship to you is, or their social or emotional connection. This is not a matter of ego or whim, this is a matter of survival. Avoid those who drag you down, who minimalize or abuse you, or otherwise depress and sadden you. Loneliness can be cured in time, but a bad relationship can drag on indefinitely and limit the chances of gaining better relationships.

A valid relationship is a mutual thing. It must be. If it is not, it is not real, and is best left. To be mutual, a relationship must show roughly balanced interaction: What is done is returned in kind. A valid relationship builds up, and enhances power, self-worth, and provides support and assistance. It is trustworthy and useful for all parties involved. If it is not, even if it be a bond of blood or law, it is poison, and must be abandoned if it cannot be changed into a valid form.

If the basic concept starts out with small successes, keep trying slightly greater things to achieve still greater successes, and surround yourself ONLY with supportive, mutual, encouraging people.

Over time it then becomes inevitable that self-worth and confidence will be the result. Here is a summary list of the basic rules as given:

Do Your Best
Do Only What You Know Is Appropriate
Remember What You Did And Reflect On It Intellectually
 
Self-Worth Is Self-Constructed
Choice And Action Are Inevitable and Unavoidable
Success Is Best Measured By Quantity First
Start Small And Build Up
 
Emotional Support Is Vital
A Valid Relationship Is Consistent And Mutual
A Valid Relationship Enhances And Encourages
Invalid Relationships MUST BE LEFT!
If one makes even a partial effort along these lines they will be rewarded by feeling better about themselves, and any progress helps make for more progress yet.

Diligent effort will be rewarded with maximum gain. Even if one cannot imagine what self-worth feels like, even if one is afraid of self-worth, these rules put forth a simple and functional plan to cling to, in order to achieve lasting and real self-worth. For those with gender issues, self-worth can often spell the difference between survival and destruction. Every living thing has the basic natural right to fight for its own survival. Bother to do so.

JAMIE LEE’S CRYSTAL CONNECTION NEWS DESK – HONEY BOO BOO


Below is two videos concerning the child Honey Boo Boo!  I agree with the opinions voiced.  I usually would not post something like this on my Crystal Connection, however I feel it sends a message that something needs direly to be fixed!

I FIND IT OBNOXIOUS THAT ANY PARENT WOULD DO THIS TO A CHILD, FOR MONETARY GAIN.   HERE IS A LITTLE GIRL THAT IS BEING CALLED NASTY NAMES, AND IS LABELED AS A FREAK SHOW.

What is wrong with this World?  Is money, important enough, to destroy your own child’s health?  Some blame the parents, and some blame the child!   But I blame YOU!  Because by watching watching this deplorable behavior, you actually promote it !

THIS IS STRICTLY THE OPINION OF JAMIE LEE AND THE CRYSTAL CONNECTION!

 

I HOPE YOU ENJOY WATCHING THIS TRAVESTY, BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT MAKES A PERSON FAMOUS!  BE PROUD OF YOUR SELVES.  I PROMOTE FEMININITY IN IT’S FINEST.

AND, HERE I SEE THE COMMENTS FROM PEOPLE CALLING THE MOTHER A FAT PIG WITH DOUBLE CHINS WHEN IN REALITY (SHE IS AN OBESE WOMAN-WHY DO WE HAVE TO BE RUDE TO HER?)

AND WE ALSO SEE A INNOCENT YOUNG GIRL BEING CALLED NASTY NAMES AND A FREAK!  (WHEN IN REALITY SHE IS A VICTIM OF BAD PARENTING!)   This child when her fame is over in a short period of time will need some sort of psychological intervention, to avoid the possible use of drugs and alcohol!  With all the sugar she is being pumped up with will eventually destroy this child’s life.  And what do you do as a Society?  You call her names, or you support the parent’s choices about this issue.

BUT !!!!!!!!!! I TRULY KNOW WHO THE FREAKS ARE IN THIS SHOW!  IT IS YOU!  THE PEOPLE THAT WILL WATCH AND SUPPORT THIS CHILD’S REALITY SHOW.  IT IS YOU WHO ARE THE FREAKS OF THIS SIDE SHOW!  So enjoy promoting a child’s destruction…………………………………………………………………..!

 

The Toddlers & Tiaras star known as “Honey Boo Boo” after her personal catchphrase visited CNN’s Starting Point Tuesday morning to discuss her new reality series and to debut a whole new slogan soon to be seen emblazoned on crop tops all across this great nation…”.* Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur break it down on The Young Turks.

My Special juice is gonna make me WIIINNNNNNNNNN

To quote George Carlin “When you’re born in this world you’re given a ticket to the freak show. When you’re born in the U.S., you’re given front row seats”.

The mom does it because she is fucking loser that doesn’t do anything and idk where the hell she gets the money but all I can say Is your an idiot when you exploit your child and have 3 chins

Her three sisters all have different fathers… June doesn’t know the father of one of her kids, and the three fathers that she can name all have a criminal records, including one of them being a sex offender…

She gives her six year old energy drinks to hype her up and make her crazy…

I can’t believe that anyone would think this family is ‘having fun’..

No, Americans can’t explain it either. I don’t knowwhat’s going on with this kid or her parents. In the United States, people from the southeastern states are viewed in a negative way. They are considered uneducated, unintelligent, unsophisticated, poor people. Personally, I grew up in this area, but I don’t fit this stereotype AT ALL. I was born in Georgia (Honey Boo Boo’s home), and I am so embarrassed by this little girl and her family. Please don’t judge us by this family.

EVERYONE MUST WATCH THIS ! IF YOU TRULY ACCEPT US ! ENOUGH IS TRULY ENOUGH ! – STOP HURTING INNOCENT CHILDREN – JAMIE LEE


IT IS TIME TO STOP DISCRIMINATION AND NON-ACCEPTANCE OF US AS TRANSSEXUALS, WE DIDN’T ASK FOR THIS, WE WERE BORN THIS WAY…………………………….BELIEVE US, ACCEPT US, HELP US, LOVE US, AND BE OUR FRIENDS !!!!!!!

I AM JAMIE LEE…………………………………………..


I’M THE BITCH FROM HELL.

I THINK YOU KNOW ME WELL.

I AM A DARK GODDESS………..

Because I was forced to be born, in this wrong body. Because I am forced to survive. Because I was forced to survive the ABYSS, Because I was forced to live in the pits of Society, to hide my heart, soul, and spirit of my true being! Because I was forced to endure such, pain, sadness, loneliness, through none of my choosing. Because, I survived, and you still judge me, and will not allow me to be free. Because you force me to be a submissive, In an existence which is not me. Because of you own narcissistic opinions, you keep me incarcerated……………………………………………………………………..It is because of YOU that I hate humanity!

Because, I am Jamie Lee – I am a woman!
