    Last night was hard. It was my first bonafide red carpet in LA (at the Beverly Hilton of all places, where they host the Golden Globes) and for some reason I felt really alienated from my body. Last night it really started to dawn on me just how much further we have to go. While gender nonconforming and nonbinary people are making progress in some ways, it's generally only been people who fit a certain androgynous, hairless, youthful look. Last night on the red carpet, I felt the weight of just how radical my chest hair and armpit hair and...

    OAKLAND, Calif. — The weekly meetings of Mouthing Off!, a group for students at Mills College in Oakland, Calif., who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, always start the same way. Members take turns going around the room saying their names and the personal pronouns they want others to use when referring to them — she, he or something else. It’s an exercise that might seem superfluous given that Mills, a small and leafy liberal arts school historically referred to as the Vassar of the West, only admits women as undergraduates. Yet increasingly, the “shes” and “hers” that dominate...

    Parents of children attending a Red Hook, New York, middle school are outraged after a recent anti-bullying presentation at Linden Avenue Middle School. The workshop for 13 and 14-year-old girls focused on homosexuality and gender identity. They were also taught words such as "pansexual" and "genderqueer." Parents say their daughters were told to ask one another for a kiss and they say two girls were told to stand in front of the class and pretend they were lesbians on a date.

    Anywhere, USA (IMpossible News) - When it comes to public restrooms, is it possible to make everyone happy? America has been a resilient country that has faced so many civil rights and human dignity challenges over the years. By the most part every major social obstacle has been met with millions or billions of dollars of government programs to grease the squeaky wheels. Now we face an issue that can't be flushed away without resolve. We need restrooms for the newly classified Gender Confused. Why not make a federal ordinance that all new public buildings have a third door, or...
