Roem beat out the district’s 26-year incumbent, conservative values and government transparency champion Bob Marshall. The race attracted national attention as Marshall, a conservative who proposed a bill restricting which bathrooms transgender people could use, faced off against the transgender stepmother who plays in a metal band.

    Washington Post ^ | 05/11/2017 | By Adam Taylor
    Emmanuel Macron is 24 years younger than his wife, and the incoming French president is exasperated that people keep talking about it. Discussing the assumptions and rumors about his relationship his wife, Brigitte, Macron told Le Parisien newspaper this week that “if I had been 20 years older than my wife, nobody would have thought for a single second that I couldn’t be.” It's a sentiment many French women seem to relate to. Speaking to The Washington Post's Mary Jordan ahead of the election, some suggested that the Macrons' marriage was social “revenge” for years of powerful men seeking younger...

  • Minnesota Rep. Susan Allen Is Two-Spirit, a Lesbian, and She Won’t Be Assimilated

    When Susan Allen was elected to the Minnesota House of Representatives in 2012, she became the first openly lesbian Native American woman to win office in any state legislature. But framing that achievement as one for the lesbian community alone obscures another aspect of Allen’s identity, and one that is directly connected to her Native American ancestry: Allen also identifies as “two-spirit.” While Americans are increasingly familiar with the elements that make-up our modern LGBTQ abbreviation, other, often older queer identities like two-spirit remain unappreciated to the point of erasure. But if Allen and other two-spirit folks have their way,...

Harvey spoke with Dr. Jeffrey Steinberg with Fertility Institutes of Encino. “I need to do this to be happy,” Renee says. She is about to undergo an egg removal — her final act as a female. Renee says she has felt like a girl since she was 5-years-old. “The first moment of my conscious life, I would say,” she says. She wants her identity hidden; doesn’t even want to say what country she came from. Renee...

    Iam the first transgender woman to rush sororities at the University of Michigan," Emily Kaufman captioned a selfie on Tumblr in September 2015, "and because I am representing trans people, looking cute is a must!" She wore her dark, naturally curly hair in a bob; a dainty silver necklace with starfish charms hung around her neck. Emily is bubbly and chatty and, as a sophomore, already had friends in a few of the sororities. After 18 years of what she calls “suppressed femininity,” Emily started coming out to friends and family during her freshman year; she’d spoken about her transition...

    If there’s a high bar for which social justice warriors strive, surely it was set by Britain’s first transgender gay Muslim woman. Amid the ongoing bathroom wars in America, conservative blogger Brandon Morse took to social media to call attention to Lucy Vallender, who he said “has the gold in the oppression [O]lympics.” Vallender, formerly known as Laurens before “he” became true to “herself,” is a former British soldier who had a sex operation in 2010 to switch out his male parts for female parts. Vallender would later convert to Islam, saying it’s a “peaceful” religion and take things even...

Patrick says Scribner placed his own personal agenda ahead of students by adopting transgender student guidelines. In a statement released on Monday afternoon, Patrick said: “After less than a year as superintendent, Dr. Scribner has lost his focus and thereby his ability to lead the Fort Worth ISD. He has placed his own personal political agenda ahead of the more than 86,000 students attending 146 schools in the district by unilaterally adopting ‘Transgender Student Guidelines.’ Without any...

    An open letter to Donald Trump. Donald, I read your string of really sad and sick tweets against Megyn Kelly. First let me say this: Leave Megyn Kelly ALONE. She is brilliant, honest and brave. I can only imagine the amount of security this mother of three now needs because Donald Trump has gone over the edge with some revenge drama just because she asked a fair question almost half a year ago! Should a presidential candidate be so thin skinned that he must belittle, abuse and threaten women? Will we really vote for you? A man who abuses anyone...
