Chelsea Manning – STORY BY JAMIE LEE


THIS IS JUST COMMING OUT, IN THE NEWS…….I DON’T KNOW WHAT SHE DID, TO GO TO PRISON, BUT SHE NOW IN AN ICON, IN THE TRANSSEXUAL COMMUNITY.    WE ARE MOVING FORWARD FOR OUR ACCEPTANCE, AND FREEDOM AS TRUE TRANSSEXUAL WOMEN……AND PLEASE NOTE, WE ARE PROUD OF WHO WE ARE, AND NOT Masquerading AROUND, AND DECEIVING PEOPLE TO BELIEVE WE ARE NATEL WOMEN , FOR OUR BLOGS OR FOR MONATERY REASONS.  WE ARE PROUD OF WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE STAND FOR………………………….JAMIE LEE – A TRANSSEXUAL WOMAN AND PROUD.                       DECEPTION I DECEPTION – IF THE SHOE FITS WEAR IT………..

 

NEW YORK — Chelsea Manning’s lack of access to hormone therapy in military prison could spark a lawsuit and potentially set a military-wide precedent for transgender servicemembers.

On Thursday, one day after she was sentenced to 35 years in prison for sending classified documents to WikiLeaks, Manning confirmed what had been suspected for years: that she identified as a woman and no longer wanted to be called Bradley. But as Manning arrived at military prison in Fort Leavenworth, Kan., officials there said that they do not offer the hormone therapy that Manning has said she wants, and which accepted medical practice says could be used to treat her diagnosed gender dysphoria.

Manning’s defense attorney David Coombs vowed Thursday to do “everything in my power to make sure they are forced” to provide her hormone therapy at Fort Leavenworth. But because the prison is citing an Army regulation banning transgender people serving in the military as its basis for denying Manning treatment, it will only provide her hormone therapy if it is forced to.

“Chelsea Manning’s refusal of treatment by the military could turn into a very, very interesting game-changer,” said Brynn Tannehill of the LGBT servicemember group SPART*A. “This is a lawsuit waiting to happen.”

The ACLU said in a statement following Manning’s announcement that denying her treatment might violate her constitutional rights.

Manning will not be eligible for parole for at least eight years, potentially leaving her without access to appropriate care for the gender dysphoria, intense stress caused by discomfort with one’s assigned gender, that a military psychologist diagnosed her with just before her arrest.

Although the military ended its Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy barring openly gay servicemembers in September 2011, the Army still bars transgender servicemembers as “administratively unfit.” The official Army regulation uses medically outdated terminology referring to “transvestism, voyeurism, other paraphilias, or factitious disorders, psychosexual conditions, transsexual, (or) gender identity disorder.”

Transgender servicemembers are supposed to be administratively separated from the Army, and cannot receive treatments for gender dysphoria like hormone therapy or sex-reassignment surgery. But administrative separation is not an option for soldiers sentenced to prison like Manning, whose rank will soon be reduced to Army private.

A Fort Leavenworth spokeswoman confirmed to HuffPost on Thursday that the military’s refusal to provide hormone therapy to its prisoners is derived from that official Army regulation, not simply a matter of prison policy or practice.

Army regulation stands in sharp contrast to the policies of the American Psychological Association, the American Psychiatric Association and the Endocrine Society, all of which acknowledge hormone therapy as an effective treatment for people who need to transition because of gender dysphoria.

“To deprive someone of this treatment is simply inhumane, and it’s no different than denying someone of their blood pressure medication or antibiotics,” said Lauren McNamara, an activist who exchanged Internet chats with Manning in 2009, before she sent files to WikiLeaks and before they both came out as transgender.

“Not allowing people people to have access to this is basically holding them hostage to their own bodies and denying them their autonomy,” said McNamara. “It is really no different than taking a woman and involuntarily exposing them to testosterone.”

There are a wide range of views within the LGBT community about how Manning’s decision to send files to WikiLeaks should be viewed. Some fear that her actions could be used to paint other LGBT servicemembers as traitors, and groups that are generally referred to as mainstream, like the Human Rights Campaign, kept their distance throughout his trial. To other activists, however, she is a hero.

Nevertheless, the military’s post-sentencing treatment of Manning seems to be uniting LGBT groups. The Human Rights Campaign issued a statement calling for her to receive appropriate care.

Tannehill was careful to state that Manning’s identity does not mitigate the charges on which Manning was convicted. But, she said, “I want for any prisoner to be treated with accepted medical standards of ethics, and that’s regardless of what she did.”

The Palm Center, a think tank at the University of California, Santa Barbara, was awarded a $1.35 million grant to study transgender military service in July. The Palm Center’s research also laid the groundwork for the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

But that’s about as much progress has been made on official acceptance of open transgender servicemembers, Tannehill said.

Talks with military officials are “informal, below the water lines, one-on-one,” and she said that even under the best of circumstances, she can only imagining the Army repealing its outdated regulation in five years.

Tannehill and some others in the transgender community are concerned that the intense publicity around Manning’s decision to come out as a woman could set back the cause of allowing transgender servicemembers to serve openly.

“I don’t know if this is going to be the best test case for that both in terms of publicity and focus,” said Nathaniel Frank, who wrote a widely-cited book about Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell in 2009. He doubts that a lawsuit aimed at Manning’s prison conditions would have an impact on the wider Army regulation.

Still, he said, “I do think because of the publicity around Manning, this could be a test case for how transgender people are treated when incarcerated.”

Access to hormone therapy and sex reassignment surgery are contested issues far beyond the military. Many state prisons do not provide one or both, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons only reached a settlement in 2011 to allow prisoners to start hormone therapy while incarcerated. Transgender inmates everywhere, meanwhile, face disproportionate exposure to the rape endemic to America’s prisons.

“I do think the publicity focused around this, even though some of it is negative, both reflects the pace of change and could help focus attention on the experience and needs of transgender people,” Frank said.

A MESSAGE FROM JAMIE LEE…………….

A MESSAGE TO MY COMMUNITY:

 

I have hid, struggled my whole life, to exist and to be.  I have transitioned and have crossed so many obstacles.  I have broken down walls. I have cried, suffered, and hated myself, over and over again.

I have despised my mirror, my image.  I have been on hormones and estrogen for over 7 years now!  I am being treated medically aw a transsexual woman (NOT A NATAL WOMAN)

I am at the stealth of my Transition, other than having the SRS.  I am happy with myself for the first time in so many years.  I know who I am!  I am Jamie Lee, a gift that was born differently, with Masculinity and Femininity.   More feminine that masculine!  

What is outrageous to me is the idiots, in my own Trans Community, who deceive the public and society into thinking that they were born, as a natal female, whether, it be by deceit, photos or words. We should be proud of who, we should be or need to be,  instead of why can’t we be!

Sure we have a right to identify ourselves as women, but when it comes to friends and especially relationships, we have a responsibility to identify ourselves as being born males in life, and educate them about our plight.

I also believe, It is highly disrespect to natal born females, that we suggest that we fit into the same category.    BECAUSE IT IS IMPOSSIBLE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why can’t we be proud of who we are, and what we have gone through in our transitions to become divinely Feminine………………..

I am Jamie Lee and I am proud that I am a Transsexual Woman, and have come this far.

You all know who I am talking about !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THIS IS THE SECOND POST , RELATING TO MY RELATIVES.  IT IS ESPECIALLY EDUCATIONAL FOR THE TRANSGENDERED COMMUNITY, IN REFERENCE TO OUR ACCEPTANCE.  IT SHOWS THAT THERE IS A MANNER TO TELL PEOPLE ABOUT US, WITH RESPECT AND DIGNITY.  DON’T JUST THROW YOURSELF AT PEOPLE.

WHAT IS OCCURING HERE,  IS ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING THINGS,  IN MY LIFE.  THE ONLY THING I AM SAD ABOUT, IS NOT COMMING OUT SOONER.

THESE RELATIVES ARE VERY CLOSE TO ME.  AND THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SPECIAL!  THESE ARE THE REPONSES I AM GETTING:

From: Cindy

Date: Wed, Feb 6, 2013 at 10:32 PM

Subject: Hello!

Just wanted to say Hi! and let you know that I was thinking about you.  By the way, I like your pictures, you look great!  I will keep reading your blog, when time allows.

I actually found out that you had a blog from my mother because Diane talked to Sharon and my Mom at the funeral for Uncle Ron.  So, I was curious and goggled your blog and was impressed with it.  When I find time I want to read more so that I can educate my self and understand what you went through and continue to go through.  You did a great job with the website!  I really enjoyed reading your story/journal and have learned a lot just from that.

I am sorry that your children are not accepting.  From what I read, it seems like they want to keep it quiet from their friends and family.  It must be hard for them.  How is “M” with all of this?  If I am getting too personal, please let me know.  I will not be insulted, but just was curious because I am sure it was or is hard for her.

I am going to my Mother’s house with Dakota on Saturday and would love to get together with you, if that is ok or you fill up to it.  We could meet at the Coventry Mall, shop and have lunch.  And yes, you can dress like Jamie.  Think about it.  I would really like to see you, keep in touch and give you the support you deserve.  I think we could have a really good time, but if you’re not up to it, I really understand.  Just let me know by Friday night if you can.

Take Care,

Cindy

Subject: Hey, Hey, Hey!

I just sent you an email and went on to your website afterword.  Guess I should have done things in reverse!  Thanks for posting my emails.  You are probably fighting a different battle when it comes to relatives not willing to accept you for who you are.  This is a tough subject for the average person.

I work for a really strict company, but truly have fun going to work every day.  My company will not tolerate negative comments about race, religion, sexual preference etc.  We have quite a few gay people at work, which can be difficult at times.  The minute an inappropriate comment is made it is dealt with.  We just can’t do it.  It has definitely taught all of us that everyone is different; we don’t have to like someone, but have to keep our thoughts to ourselves and/or accept the person.  I really love my job and the policies put in place.  They really protect each and every one of us.  Just thought I would pass this on.

Anyhow, you are in one hell of a tough situation.  Most people, especially older ones are set in their ways and just don’t get it or are not willing to try to understand something like this.  You know that.  Most people for the most part are not able to adapt to change very well.  My company works with us to achieve acceptance, change, etc.  I am proud of myself to have achieved understanding of people that are different from me (we have different culture events), accepting people for who they are, and not being judgmental.  Trust me, I would not be working there if I thought or did anything against our policies.  This is definitely a job that I truly enjoy going to each and every day.

By the way, would it be okay to call you sometime soon?  It’s okay sending emails, but I would really like to talk to you.  Promise me that you will consider lunch/shopping.  I need a few things, but would settle for lunch.   Boy, once I get started, I just don’t stop talking.  I was called “Chatty Cathy” as a child.  Stay in touch.

Take Care,

Cindy

MY RESPONSE TO HER:

By the way, No question is too personal. It would be fun getting together with you   You can e-mail, you can call , You can be my friend.  You would be amazed at the things that are occurring.   Hey I sent Carol and Diane my blog, and am asking that they respond with their comments and opinions.   It’s important.  I will also post it on my blog.   Maybe I can teach you some make-up tips!   Just kidding.  I would love to go to lunch or shopping with you………..WHO PAYS?    Ha ha       My autograph is actually on sale for two weeks.

Everything depends on this storm that is hitting us tonight into tomorrow.

Please keep in touch..

If you want call me tonight………….. After 6:30 p.m.  Or another night.

Chatty Cathy, hmmmmmmmmmmm.  Interesting………………..

Jamie Lee

I ASK THAT PEOPLE PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT SHE SAID ABOUT HER COMPANY POLICIES!    WE ARE MOVING FORWARD IN OUR FREEDOM AND ACCEPTANCE.

THE NEXT FEW MONTHS ARE SPECIAL TO ME.  LISA BUFFINGTON AND I ARE TEAMING UP TO DO “PUBLIC SPEAKING” IN BUSINESSES, COLLEGES, AND SCHOOLS.    IT WILL BE ABOUT DISCRIMINATION, SEXISM, TOLERENCE AND WISDOM !!

ALSO, I AM PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THAT VERY SOON MY BLOG WILL HAVE BEEN VISITED BY 4000 PEOPLE, FROM OVER 50 DIFFERENT COUNTRIES,  AROUND THE WORLD!  THANK YOU ALL !!!!!

AND LASTLY, TO ALL MY RELATIVES WHO DO VISIT THIS CRYSTAL CONNECTION, THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND ACCEPTANCE.    REMEMBER THIS!   I WAS BORN THIS WAY, THE PERSON, YOU HAVE KNOWN IS ONLY DRESSED DIFFERENTLY!

TSA SECURITY CHECK-POINT – RECOMMENDATIONS BY JAMIE LEE


THERE IS NOTHING MORE UN-NEARVING, NOW-A DAYS, THEN FLYING, AND HAVING TO  GO, THROUGH THE TSA SECURITY CHECK POINT!  BUT TODAY IT IS A NECESSARY EVIL.   BELOW ARE MY RECOMMENATIONS, TO MAKE YOUR TRIP AND EXPERIENCE EASIER.

Jamie-standing

FIRST AND FORMOST, I WISH TO TALK ABOUT THE TSA SECURITY STAFF!   THE MAJORITY OF THEM, ARE HARD WORKING, DEDICATED AND PROFESSIONAL INDIVIDUALS.  THEY DEAL WITH, TRYING TO PROTECT THE FLYING PUBLIC, TO KEEP THEM SAFE TO, REACH THEIR FINAL DESTINATION, IN A WORLD WERE PEOPLE WANT TO KILL US.  THEY HAVE THEIR PROCEEDURES.  REMEMBER:  RESPECT BEGETS RESPECT!  THEY ARE HUMAN BEINGS.  TREAT THEM WITH DIGNITY. AS YOU WISH TO BE TREATED !  JAMIE LEE…………….

 

MY ADVICE AND RECOMMENDTIONS BELOW ARE FOR THE TRANSGENDERED INDIVIDUALS, GOING THROUGH THE PROCESS OF THE CHECK POINT.

ANY QUESTIONS OR FOR FUTHER ADVICE E-MAIL ME AT,  jlcrystalconnection@gmail.com 

FLYING FOR THE TRANSGENDERED PUBLIC:

1.  Go on to TSA’s website and check for any updates, in reference to what you are allowed to take, and any changes, etc.

2.  At any TSA check point there are the TSA Officers,  listen to them, they are trained to get you through the process as easily as possible.  Don’t argue with them, it is not their rules, they are just enforcing the mandates.  As a Transgendered traveler, should you experience any type, of rude or disrespectful actions, ask to see a Supervisor at the Check point.  If the Supervisor doesn’t solve your problem or is disrespectful to you as a person or being transgendered, ask for a manager!

3.  Every Check point has complaint forms, if you have been treated unprofessionally, ask the Supervisor for one of these forms, fill it out and send it to TSA. They do listen!

4.  Also they have forms that you can fill out, and compliment, the Officer or staff who treated you with dignity and respect in the process!  Everyone likes a compliment for nice things.  Plus it would help, TSA learn how to deal with us, as Transgendered people.

5.  Unless it has changed, you are only allowed to carry through the Check point, 3.4 oz of any liquid.  Girls this means in your “tits” also!   Leave the “Bird Seed and Water filled Breasts at home.    Silicone Breast forms I am unsure of?

 Butt forms, and any other paraphernalia, including any strap-one, or sexual aids, PLACE, in the bag.  Present it to the TSA Officer, tell them what is in it, so that,  it can be inspected with dignity.  You can even ask, that It be done in a private setting, away from the eyes of the traveling public.

7.  Trust me, TSA officers and staff, have seen everything, they are only interested in processing you, doing their job, and going to the next passenger.

8.  I suggest you get to the Airport, in advance, so you can go through the process easier.  And if there is something you are not allowed to take, you have an opportunity to send it home!

9.  YES, Girls, you can take hair rollers and curling irons along. NO ARISOL !!!

10.  Should you have any questions, concerning what you want to take, call the Airport or TSA, at the Airport!  And ask them!

My suggestions are valid.  You don’t have to listen to me, but if you do, trust me your trip will be less stressful !

Remember Girls, you can be a “Bag of Chips and All That!” once you reach your destination!

Also, what anyone thinks about you!  Is none of your business !!!!!!!

LASTLY!  AS WE SPEAK, TSA IS BEING TRAINED, HOW TO TREAT US AS TRANSGENDERED INDIVIDUALS, WITH DIGNITY.  GIVE THEM A CHANCE TO LEARN.

I FEEL YOU HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY, TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR OUR TRANSGENDERED “SISTERS” WHO FOLLOW YOU.  YOU CAN MAKE THEIR EXPERIENCE NICER AND EASIER.

GIRLS, WHEN YOU APPROACH THE CHECK POINT, REMEMBER, SHOULDERS OUT! CHEST OUT! HOLD YOU HEAD HIGH AND WALK THROUGH WITH DIGNITY!  MAKE US PROUD TO BE WHO WE ARE !!

I EVEN GOT DRESSED UP TO PRESENT THIS POST TO YOU.  IN MY OPINION, FOR  LOT OF REASONS, THIS IS A HUDGE MOVE FORWARD, BY OUR GOVERMENT, IN REFERENCE TO THE TRANSGENDERED COMMUNITY…….I DO BELIEVE THAT TSA OFFICERS SHOULD BE INTENSLY TRAINED NOW, IN THE DYNAMICS, OF THE TRANSGENDERED COMMUNITY, SO THEY,  MAY DEAL WITH US IN A RESPECTFUL, DIGNIFIED MANNER !!!!  GIVE THEM A CHANCE !!!!

JAMIE LEE A TRANSEXUAL GENETIC WOMAN 

Jamie-standing

SO YOU THINK,  WE ARE NOT MAKING HEAD WAY IN THE TRANSGENDERED COMMUNITY.  JUST READ THIS, PUBLISHED BY THE NATIONAL CENTER FOR TRANSGENDER EQUALITY.   I AM PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THIS!  DO I BELIEVE, THAT TRANSGENDERED INDIVLDUALS WILL BE ABLE TO TRAVEL WITHOUT DEMEANING GIGGLES, AND DISRESPECT?  HELL NO! NOT IMMEDIATELY!   INTOLERANCE IS INTOLERANCE !!! 

BUT REMEMBER THIS, THE MAJORITY OF TSA OFFICERS ARE HARD WORKING INDIVIDUALS, WHO BELIEVE IN THEIR JOBS AND THEIT RESPONSIBILITIES – THAT IS PROTECTING YOU AND THE TRAVELING PUBLIC, FROM HARM!

BUT THIS!  IS A MAJOR MOVE FOWARD, IN OUR ATTEMPTS TO BE FREE………….AND KNOWN.  AND UNDERSTOOD- JAMIE LEE

TSA recognizes the concerns members of the transgender community may have with undergoing the security screening process at our Nation’s airports and is committed to conducting screening in a dignified and respectful manner. These travel tips will explain the various screening processes and technologies travelers may encounter at security checkpoints.

Preparing for Travel

Making Reservations: Secure Flight requires airlines to collect a traveler’s full name, date of birth, gender and Redress Number (if applicable) to significantly decrease the likelihood of watch list misidentification. Travelers are encouraged to use the same name, gender, and birth date when making the reservation that match the name, gender, and birth date indicated on the government-issued ID that the traveler intends to use during travel.

Packing a Carry-on: All carry-on baggage must go through the screening process. If a traveler has any medical equipment or prosthetics in a carry-on bag, the items will be allowed through the checkpoint after completing the screening process. Travelers may ask that bags be screened in private if a bag must be opened by an officer to resolve an alarm. Travelers should be aware that prosthetics worn under the clothing that alarm a walk through metal detector or appear as an anomaly during Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) screening may result in additional screening, to include a thorough pat-down. Travelers may request a private screening at any time during the security screening process.

Contacting TSA in Advance of Travel: Travelers may contact TSA prior to a flight through the TSA Contact Center at 1-866-289-9673 and TSA-ContactCenter@dhs.gov.

The Screening Process

Private Screening: Screening can be conducted in a private screening area with a witness or companion of the traveler’s choosing. A traveler may request private screening or to speak with a supervisor at any time during the screening process.

Travel Document Checker: The traveler will show their government-issued identification and boarding pass to an officer to ensure the identification and boarding pass are authentic and match. Transgender travelers are encouraged to book their reservations such that they match the gender and name data indicated on the government-issued ID.

Walk Through Metal Detector: Metal detectors are in use at all airports.

Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT): Screening with advanced imaging technology is voluntary and travelers may “opt out” at any time. Travelers who “opt out” of the AIT screening are required to undergo a thorough pat-down by an officer of the same gender as the traveler presents.

New Advanced Imaging Technology Software: TSA has upgraded all millimeter wave advanced imaging technology units with new software called Automated Target Recognition to further enhance privacy protections by eliminating the image of an actual traveler and replacing it with a generic outline of a person.

Pat-Down: A pat-down may be performed if there is an alarm of the metal detector, if an anomaly is detected using advanced imaging technology, if an officer determines that the traveler is wearing non-form fitting clothing, or on a random basis. If a pat-down is chosen or otherwise necessary, private screening may be requested. Pat-downs are conducted by an officer of the same gender as presented by the individual at the checkpoint.

Prosthetics: Travelers should neither be asked to nor agree to lift, remove, or raise any article of clothing to reveal a prosthetic and should not be asked to remove it.

Behavior Detection Program: Behavior Detection Officers screen travelers using non-intrusive behavior observation and analysis techniques to identify potentially high-risk passengers. Officers are designed to detect individuals exhibiting behaviors that indicate they may be a threat to aviation and/or transportation security. Individuals exhibiting specific observable behaviors may be referred for additional screening, which can include a pat-down and physical inspection of carry-on baggage.

TSA recognizes that exhibiting some of these behaviors does not automatically mean a person has terrorist or criminal intent. Referrals for additional screening are solely based on specific observed behaviors.

Reporting Travel Issues or Concerns

Travelers who believe they have experienced unprofessional conduct at a security checkpoint are encouraged to request a supervisor at the checkpoint to discuss the matter immediately or to submit a concern to TSA’s Contact Center at: TSA-ContactCenter@dhs.gov.

Travelers who believe they have experienced discriminatory conduct because of a protected basis may file a concern with TSA’s Office of Civil Rights & Liberties, Ombudsman and Traveler Engagement at: Civil Rights for Travelers.

Travelers may also file discrimination concerns with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties at: Civil Rights and Civil Liberties.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) recently unveiled a webpage featuring information and advice for transgender travelers going through airport security. TSAs advice, while not comprehensive, covers a few important points:

  • Travelers      should make sure that the gender provided when they book their flight      matches the gender designation on the government-issued ID they bring to      the airport. TSA Travel Document Checkers will check to ensure      that information on your ID matches your boarding pass, however it does      not matter whether your current gender presentation matches the gender      marker on your ID or your presentation in your ID photo, and TSA officers      should not comment on this.
  • In the      event that a pat-down is required, it will only be conducted by an officer      of the same gender as the traveler, based on the traveler’s gender      presentation. This means that transgender women should be searched      by female officers, and transgender men should be searched by male      officers.
  • Transgender      people should never be required to lift, remove or raise an article of      clothing to reveal a prosthetic item and should not be asked to remove it.      This      applies to items such as breast forms and packers.
  • Transgender      people who experience discriminatory or unprofessional conduct should      request a supervisor and report it to TSA and to the DHS Office for Civil      Rights and Civil Liberties.

NCTE Executive Director Mara Keisling says, “We’re thankful that the TSA is offering this kind of advice to trans travelers. It lets us know that trans people are on TSAs radar, and that they’re thinking about how to be helpful. But the TSA can strengthen their advice and do the work needed to address the full range of concerns transgender people face in airport security.”

Results from the National Transgender Discrimination Survey found that nearly a third of transgender people experienced disrespect, discrimination or assault on an airplane or with TSOs. And for seven years, NCTE has advocated that the TSA develop procedures to avoid screening that can out transgender people and invade their privacy, as well as to provide appropriate training for Transportation Security Officers. NCTE has also urged TSA to address numerous reports of discrimination against transgender employees by adopting explicit nondiscrimination policies.

We will soon release updated resources to educate transgender people about what they should expect at airport security, and how to deal with problems at the airport.

NOW SOME FACTS

IN THE TRANSGENDERED COMMUNITY WE REFERRED TO NATURAL BORN WOMAN AS “GENETIC FEMALES”

A RECENT SCIENTIFIC STUDY WAS COMPLETED, AND IT WAS FOUND!

“TRANSEXUALITY – HOMOSEXUAL – LESBIAN”

IS CAUSED BY GENETICS

So now, it allows the Transsexual individuals to identify as GENETIC Females-

AND NATURALLY BORN FEMALES ARE REFERRED TO AS “NATAL FEMALES” !

1.  Every Natal male has estrogen in them, and every Natal female has testosterone in them!

2.  Transsexuals are more female,  than, they are male, by virtue of genetics!

NOW HERE IS WHERE I COME IN !!!!

Sign dont let me get my flying monkeys

I have flying monkeys dont mke me use them

I have been treated for over 8 years by a Natal female, Therapist, who specializes in Gender Disorders,  Dr. Carol Hershey, as being a Gender Dysphoric, Transsexual Female, and I have been treated legally, and medically, by a Natal female, Dr. Santiago, as a Transsexual Woman – PLEASE NOTE:  NOT A TRANSGENDERED WOMAN!

I HAVE BEEN ON HORMONES, ESTROGEN-{SELF INJECTION, EVERY TWO WEEKS} AND,  SPIRO, FOR OVER 8 YEARS.  THIS IS UNDER A DOCTOR’S CARE! AND RECOMMENDATION, AS A TRANSSEXUAL WOMAN!   PLEASE NOTE AGAIN:  NOT A TRANSGENDERED WOMAN !

I want to take  moment and make a statement to the Natal woman, out there, who are offended or challenged by us, labeling our-selves as women!  How pathetic you are.  Don’t worry, we can never become NATAL FEMALE – It is IMPOSSIBLE.  I have had many arguments, with my Transsexual Sisters, in this Community, who say they are Woman! And they get angry even with me, when I point out that they can never be a Natal Woman, even after the SRS Operation, but we are the closest thing to the dynamics of a NATAL woman, that we should be respectfully considered as such.

LGBT

LESBIAN – GAY – BI-SEXUAL -TRANSGENDER

LGBT is an initialism that collectively refers to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. In use since the 1990s, the term LGBT is an adaptation of the initialism “LGB“, which itself started replacing the phrase gay community beginning in the mid-to-late 1980s,[1] which many within the community in question felt did not accurately represent all those to whom it referred.  The initialism has become mainstream as a self-designation and has been adopted by the majority of sexuality and gender identity-based community centers and media in the United States and some other English-speaking countries.

The term LGBT is intended to emphasize a diversity of sexuality and gender identity-based cultures and is sometimes used to refer to anyone who is non-heterosexual or non-cisgender instead of exclusively to people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender To recognize this inclusion, a popular variant adds the letter Q for those who identify as queer and/or are questioning their sexual identity as “LGBTQ“, recorded since 1996.

The first Rainbow Flag was designed in 1978 by Gilbert Baker, a San Francisco artist, who created the flag in response to a local activist’s call for the need of a community symbol. (This was before the pink triangle was popularly used as a symbol of pride.) Using the five-striped “Flag of the Race” as his inspiration, Baker designed a flag with eight stripes. Baker dyed and sewed the material for the first flag himself — in the true spirit of Betsy Ross

After the November 1978 assassination of San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and openly gay Supervisor Harvey Milk and the subsequent lenient sentence given to their killer, former Supervisor Dan White, the Rainbow Flag began to be used in San Francisco as a general symbol of the gay community. San Francisco-based Paramount Flag Co. began selling seven-striped (top to bottom: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet) flags from its Polk Street retail store, which was located in a large gay neighborhood. These flags were surplus stock which had originally been made for the International Order of Rainbow for Girls, a Masonic organization for young women. When Baker approached Paramount to make flags for the 1979 Gay Freedom Day Parade, Paramount informed Baker that fabric for hot pink was not available for mass production, and Baker dropped the hot pink stripe.

Baker also asked Paramount to make vertical banners that would be split and displayed from the angular double bars of the old-style lamp posts on Market Street. Baker and Paramount’s vice president Ken Hughes agreed to drop the hot pink and turquoise stripes and replace the indigo stripe with royal blue — resulting in three stripes on one side of the lamp post and three on the other.

Soon the six colors were incorporated into a six-striped version that became popularized and that, today, is recognized by the International Congress of Flag Makers.
