    The familiar voice coming over the radios of tens of thousands of Boston area drivers on the way to work Wednesday was the same. But the name had changed. WBZ-AM traffic reporter Scott Eck signed off as Kristen Eck for the first time, another step in a decades-long struggle with her gender identity.

    Citing "genitalia discrimination," a transgender woman is suing the government to write regulation requiring the installation of urinals in women's bathrooms. "I want to have the right to use the bathroom for the gender I identify with," said the woman who asked to go by the name Venus. "It's really very simple. I may or may not go through with the operation. If I choose not to I shouldn't have to spent the rest of my life feeling like bathrooms can't be a safe space for me because I have to sit down when I could just whip it out...

    You'd be surprised how many people ask me about my crotch. It's a lot. I have had people ask me which "parts" I have, how they look, what I plan to do with them. I don't run around with a sign that says "ask me about my crotch," but as soon as I bring up my gender identity to certain people, all of a sudden it appears on the discussion table like a highly inappropriate Seamless order. Yes, even in New York. Yes, even among seemingly "progressive" people. And it stems from the fact that most people you meet simply...

    NASHVILLE (BP) -- As March Madness begins, a homosexual advocacy group is pressuring the NCAA to exclude from its membership all schools with federal government approval to "discriminate" against transgender individuals on religious grounds. Southern Baptist seminary president R. Albert Mohler Jr. predicted the NCAA eventually will succumb to pressure from activists and grant the request to ban schools with a biblically orthodox view of human sexuality from America's most prominent college athletics association. Campus Pride, a coalition of more than 80 homosexual and transgender advocacy groups wrote a letter to the NCAA March 9 "requesting that the NCAA take...

    The danger to women and young girls is worse than most people imagine. The LGBT movement is aggressively pushing transgender “non-discrimination” bills across the country. In Massachusetts, Bill #1577 could be voted in the State House on any day now! Across the country, pro-family groups refer to them as “bathroom bills” – claiming that men would go into women’s restrooms and locker rooms for crude or obscene purposes. We’ll admit we were skeptical at first. But recently we’ve talked to many women who’ve experienced it, and seen news reports (which are just the very tip of the iceberg). However, many...

The New Chapel (Unitarian and Free Christian) in Greater Manchester unanimously passed the new proposal at its general meeting last week, paving the way for the ceremonies to go ahead in the near future. 'Worship leader' Jean Clements said she came up with the idea after meeting and marrying a gay couple with a small child – a biological boy which they had branded as transgendered and decided was...

I know, because I suffered through “sex change” surgery and lived as a woman for eight years. The surgery fixed nothing—it only masked and exacerbated deeper psychological problems.The beginnings of the transgender movement have gotten lost today in the push for transgender rights, acceptance, and tolerance. If more people were aware of the dark and troubled history of sex-reassignment surgery, perhaps we wouldn’t be so quick to push people toward it.The setting for the first transgender surgeries (mostly male-to-female) was in university-based clinics, starting in the...

Entertainment Tonight, quoting 'a source with direct knowledge,' said Bruce, now 65, talked about transitioning 30 years ago. By the mid-1980s, the Olympic gold medalist had allegedly started hormone therapy and electrolysis and had had plastic surgery to make his features look more feminine.

Well – at least I think that Chelsea is just Bradley in a stupid-looking wig; others apparently hold some different views. The article’s title pretty well summarized the rest of the pathetic story.

    If someone came to a doctor and asked him to cut off a perfectly healthy arm because it just felt "wrong" for the arm to be there, should the doctor do it?

"The federal anti-discrimination regulations have yet to be written, but California insurance regulators have said that companies must treat transgender patients the same as other patients," reports The Daily Beast.

However, he said "every qualified American who wants to serve our country should have an opportunity if they fit the qualifications and can do it." A transgender individual is someone who has acquired the physical characteristics of the opposite sex or presents themselves in a way that does not correspond with their sex at birth.

    ARCADIA, CA, July 26, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Pro-family leaders reacted with stunned disbelief this week to the news of a settlement in the case of a Southern California girl whose parents filed a federal civil rights complaint against their local school district after their daughter was not allowed to sleep in a hotel room full of boys during field trips, despite her belief that she is a boy trapped in a girl's body. After two years of investigation by the Obama administration's Department of Justice, the Arcadia Unified School District agreed to a settlement in which they admit no wrongdoing,...

    Teenagers Arin Andrews and Katie Hill look like any normal young couple posing in their swimwear. It is hard to believe that just two years ago Arin was a girl called Emerald, and Katie was a boy called Luke. Arin, 17, and Katie, 19, from Tulsa, Oklahoma, have both undergone surgeries to change their gender and now are enjoying being in their bodies they always wished for. Just over a year ago Katie, a university student, had gender reassignment surgery, thanks to an amazing $35,000 donation from an anonymous donor who read her story in a local newspaper. Now, Arin,...
  • Don’t push kids to change gender identities

    Assembly member Tom Ammiano has introduced a bill that would require public schools to allow children to change their gender identities, and then have access to the bathrooms, locker rooms and sports teams of that gender. I have nothing but sympathy for people who feel they are trapped in the wrong body. I cannot think of anything that would be harder for a person to do than tell the world that he is a she or she is a he. Still, I do not like Ammiano’s bill because it overrides parental authority and basically encourages kids to change their gender...

    Yes, Tyler is still a boy. That’s what people who heard about him have wondered. After a Maryland couple decided to listen to their 5-year-old daughter’s urgent and persistent insistence that she was a boy, after a psychiatrist told them it would be healthy to let the child live as a boy, after they let him pick a boy name and found a school that would enroll the child in kindergarten as a boy last year, Tyler’s parents have had no second thoughts. “It’s not a phase,” said his mother, Jean. “Anyone who meets him says, ‘Yeah, that’s a boy.’...

    (CNN) -- A transgender first-grader who was born a boy but identifies as a girl has won the right to use the girls' restroom at her Colorado school. The Colorado Rights Division ruled in favor of Coy Mathis in her fight against the Fountain-Fort Carson School District. Coy's parents had taken her case to the commission after the district said she could no longer use the girls' bathroom at Eagleside Elementary. In issuing its decision, the state's rights division said keeping the ban in place "creates an environment that is objectively and subjectively hostile, intimidating or offensive." The Transgender Legal...

    Danielle Sheridan, age 8, was born a boy. Before she was 3, she began telling her parents she was a girl. It wasn't a phase. She was insistent. She identified with Cinderella. She wanted to grow up and marry a prince. She began dressing like a girl at home. “We kept it in our home only because of our fear of society. We wanted her to be happy, but we wanted her to be safe,” said her mom, Leah Sheridan, 35. Finally, her daughter said she didn’t want to live if she had to live as a boy. “She said...

    A senior boy at Middleborough High School in Middleborough, Mass. -- who started coming to school dressed as a girl during his sophomore year -- became the school's "prom queen" last week. Fox News in Boston did the first report on this, and it was a gushing pro-transgender puff piece -- referring to the boy as "she" -- with no contrasting opinion included at all. The Fox anchorwoman was totally "with the program." Fox News began its report describing the boy the "a girl whose growing achievement is the end of a journey that she started years earlier." Fox went...

    Next week, the Swedish parliament is expected to pass a law abolishing a requirement for people changing their legal gender to be sterilized. The move follows a high level and at times bitter debate about a four-decade old law that pitted equality activists against conservative politicians. The activists argued that the 1972 law—making Sweden one of the first countries in the world to allow legal gender change—breached human rights. Opponents objected to possible situations where a person born as a woman, changes her legal identity to become a man, then gets pregnant. … For transgender people everywhere, Argentina currently sets...

    A transgender high school student who applied to prestigious, private, all-female Smith College has been rejected because the school only accepts women. Smith returned Calliope Wong’s application — and application fee — earlier this month, reports The Advocate. “As you may remember from our previous correspondence, Smith is a women’s college, which means that undergraduate applicants to Smith must be female at the time of admission,” admissions dean Debra Shaver wrote in a letter to Wong, The Advocate says. Wong has identified as female for several years, according to the Keystone Student Voice. However, on the FAFSA (Free Application for...

    When Liz Carmouche fought Ronda Rousey at UFC 157, she became the first openly gay UFC fighter. The sport is breaking new ground again with transgender female fighter Fallon Fox. As a postoperative transgender woman since 2006, Fox has two professional wins under her belt. But her license is now under review in Florida, where she knocked out Ericka Newsome in a Championship Fighting Alliance tournament bout. Fox revealed her original gender to Sports Illustrated on Monday. She said when she applied for a license in Florida, that she already held a license in California
