Thunderer: Help transgender children by ending old lies and fears | Scotland | The Times & The Sunday Times
Despite what you may have heard, children cannot be turned transgender. To suggest they can be bamboozled into it — or that anyone would want to do that — is a straightforward malicious lie. From the age of four until I was 18, everyone I knew told me I couldn’t be a girl. And yet here I am ten years on, living as a woman.

Hidden gay British histories take centre stage 50 years after decriminalisation | Culture | The Guardian
In July 1967 the Sexual Offences Act finally decriminalised private homosexual acts between men over 21 in England and Wales. It was a momentous, transformative moment, although it took until 1980 for the law to be changed in Scotland, and until 1982 in Northern Ireland.

Linck gefällt es hier inmitten der Stadt. „Gegen die Rousseaus dieser Welt habe ich als Schwuler in der Urbanität immer einen Sicherheitsmechanismus gesehen. Sie erschwert den direkten Zugriff auf den Schwachen, Machtlosen.“ Früher, als er noch gependelt ist, war dies seine Zweitwohnung, jetzt wohnt er ganz in Berlin.

For These Millennials, Gender Norms Have Gone Out Of Style : NPR
More than two-thirds of people ages 14 to 34 agree that gender does not have to define a person in the way that it used to[.] And 6 in 10 say that men & women do not need to conform to traditional gender roles or behaviors anymore. [...] defying gender expectations. "This generation views gender as a mark of self-expression — they view it as a way of displaying their full sense of self," she says. For example, Rae Tutera, who will appear in an upcoming documentary produced by Lena Dunham about gender nonconformity in fashion, says that the first time she felt like herself was in a men's suit. Tutera, 29, says she is "on the masculine side of the gender spectrum." [...] "Sometimes you have to act braver than you feel," she says, remembering what it felt like to enter a fancy men's suit store in Manhattan. [ ... but ...] most [vast majority of] millennials don't push gender boundaries. [...] [M]illennials are considering the ways in which gender might be flexible. [+See Comments!]

Adam — The thing about patriarchy is that individual men,...
>> for video clip << Gronkh, Sarazar, David Hain und Co >> “The thing about patriarchy is that individual men, gay and straight, are often really wonderful people who you love deeply, but they have internalized some really poisonous shit. So every once in a while they say or do something that really shakes you because you’re no longer totally certain they see you as a human being, and you feel totally disempowered to explain that to them.”

Sex-Aufklärung: Forscherin Tuider über Streit um sexuelle Vielfalt - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Elisabeth Tuider [...] Fachgebiet Soziologie der Diversität leitet. Ihre Schwerpunkte sind Genderforschung, Sexualpädagogik und Prävention von sexueller Gewalt. [...] Tuider: Mit Verstören meinen wir, dass zum Beispiel beim Thema Homosexualität gängige Vorurteile infrage gestellt werden, um den Jugendlichen zu zeigen: Du kannst in der Vielfalt, die ohnehin längst Realität ist, selbstbestimmt entscheiden, wie du leben und lieben möchtest. SPIEGEL ONLINE: Genau das geht vielen zu weit. In Baden-Württemberg tobt seit Monaten ein Schulstreit, Kritiker wehren sich gegen "sexuelle Vielfalt" als Lernziel. Eltern haben Angst, die Kontrolle zu verlieren - und zwar nicht nur die streng katholischen.

In case you needed another reason to promote diversity in tech… | PandoDaily
The survey found that 67 percent of respondents say diversity is “an important factor when evaluating companies and job offers.” So by valuing diversity, companies will not only find talent across all demographics — they will also increase their chances of attracting more talent simply by virtue of being diverse. It’s a gift that keeps on giving. Unsurprisingly, women and minority groups value diversity most, with 72 percent of women, 89 percent of African Americans, 80 percent of Asians, and 70 percent of Latinos calling it an important factor. Interestingly, military veterans were also among those most likely to value diversity at 65 percent. [ Diversity = more points of view & experience range that can be drawn upon when making decisions [and debating the way forwad] however big and small. ]

Dialog über Homophobie in Berliner Moschee geplatzt - SPIEGEL ONLINE
In einer Berliner Moschee sollte ein Dialog über Homophobie zwischen Muslimen und Homosexuellen stattfinden. Ein mutiger Schritt in Richtung Toleranz - der von Teilen der türkischen Presse mit einem Aufschrei quittiert wurde. Ein Lehrstück über Toleranz. [...] "Islamophobie in der schwulen Community" Ender Çetin sah sich nun genötigt zu betonen, dass von Einladung keine Rede sein könne. Zugleich betonte er, dass es bereits in der Vergangenheit zwei Besuche von LGBTI-Gruppen in der Moschee gegeben habe. "Unsere Moschee steht allen offen", sagte Çetin, legte dann aber seine Einstellung offen: "Homosexualität ist eine Sünde", um schließlich wieder abzumildern, indem er sagte, die Diskriminierung von Homosexuellen könne kein wahrer Muslim hinnehmen. Wie er diesen Zwiespalt überwinden will? Der geplante Dialog könne dabei helfen, Antworten zu finden.

Alexis Ohanian, Reddit Co-Founder, To His 'Fellow Geeks': Stop Being Sexist
The comments (and support for them) I’ve seen over the past few days have really disappointed me and I really hope this is a chance for us to reflect on how we use these tools to foster the tech community. This isn't "political correctness," this is you having the courage to use your words to create an environment that promotes an open exchange of ideas -- not alienate people and certainly not terrorize them. [...] Ohanian points out that the majority of the Reddit community is made up not only of "not-poor straight white men," who should open up and be kind to those who are different from them. He ends the post by writing that "the Internet won't live up to its full potential without getting the best out of everyone." - http://alexisohanian.com/dear-fellow-geeks-what-the-fuck - via http://www.reddit.com/r/todayilearned/comments/2mgpx9/til_reddit_founder_alex_ohanian_wrote_an_open/

Training The Next Generation Of Doctors To Get LGBT Health Right : Shots - Health News : NPR
[... professionals have blind-spots ...] Many people don't trust their health care providers; I think there's good reason behind that. We all have blind spots; even well-meaning providers do. But we want everyone to feel welcome, and to feel that their unique needs are being met. [...] Doctors need to be able to promote positive images of sexual health to individuals who may be having a different type of sexual behavior than they are. Everyone's entitled to positive sexual health.

Feminismus: Fleischhauer zur Emma-Debatte - Kolumne - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Es ist vermutlich kein Zufall, dass der Feminismus in Deutschland von einer Frau angeführt wurde, die sich noch nie groß darum geschert hat, was andere über sie denken, auch nicht in der eigenen Szene. Schwarzer hat immer überlegt, wie sie mit ihren Anliegen möglichst viele Frauen erreichen kann. Der moderne Feminismus geht den umgekehrten Weg. Statt ins Allgemeingültige zielt er ins Sektenhafte und wiederholt damit den Fehler vieler linker Bewegungen, denen die Befassung mit Unterschieden immer wichtiger war als die Betonung von Gemeinsamkeiten und damit der Gewinn an politischer Durchschlagskraft.

BBC Radio 4 - A History of Ideas, Historian Simon Schaffer on Beauty and Evolution, Feminine Beauty: A social construct?
Feminine Beauty: A social construct? // The French existentialist writer Simone de Beauvoir famously declares in her book The Second Sex that a woman isn’t born a woman, rather she becomes one. She means by this that there is no way women have to be, no given femininity, no ideal to which all women should conform. Simone de Beauvoir suggests that resistance to male stereotypes of beauty can mean greater equality. Voiced by Harry Shearer. Scripted by Nigel Warburton. &!&!&!& via http://www.reddit.com/r/FemmeThoughts/comments/2lqcw6/feminine_beauty_as_a_social_construct/ "it is feminism's goal to break away from that oppression and its labels. This deconstruction also represents a point of departure from the failings of humanism. [...] feminist theory is broadly applicable to any marginalized or oppressed group"

I'm Trying to Be a Bisexual, But I'm Failing Miserably | VICE United Kingdom
It’s not a competition, I know, to be as gay as humanly possible in order to keep up with the Cleve Joneses. But it would be nice to be at least a little competently gay. A friend invited me over for dinner the other night exclusively to, I quickly found out, inform me she was “into me.” Upon receipt of this information, my eyes bugged out of my head like a Tex Avery cartoon, I internally “hummina-hummina-humminaed,” and immediately commenced to drinking an entire bottle of wine. I ultimately got the fuck outta Dodge before shit got real. Why the hell did I do that? That broad wanted me! I wanted her! Rejection wasn't lurking around the corner. It wasn't even in the building! And yet, still, I was terrified. Presumably because I didn't know what the hell I was doing? Because I'm a 31-year-old amateur? Christ. If only acting queer was as easy as being queer.

Interview: Jenny Nordberg, Author Of 'The Underground Girls Of Kabul' : NPR
oppression, gender-based discrimination, ... " "I see how women are treated here. Why would I want to be one of them?" So she goes to great lengths to disguise herself as a boy, and she has constant daily arguments with her parents, who beg of her, "Can you become more feminine? Can you grow out your hair?" And she refuses. She will walk in a hunched-over way, in an exaggerated male fashion, and very much take on the attitude of a young man. This is how she's grown up, and this is what feels natural to her. So, there are a few who actually are able to resist, but most of the time, you don't go against your parents."

Generation LGBTQIA - NYTimes.com
Rise of post gay-rights movement because of the lack of T&Q and other in real-world LGBT environement. Because gender-nonconforming (Non-Cis) people feel lost in a publicly L&G-only accepting world. YOU DON'T NEED TO UNDERSTAND to ACCEPT, as long as we do not hurt you. Welcome to LGBTQ+ ... !

If the gay-rights movement today seems to revolve around same-sex marriage, this generation is seeking something more radical: an upending of gender roles beyond the binary of male/female. The core question isn’t whom they love, but who they are — that is, identity as distinct from sexual orientation.

But what to call this movement? Whereas “gay and lesbian” was once used to lump together various sexual minorities — and more recently “L.G.B.T.” to include bisexual and transgender — the new vanguard wants a broader, more inclusive abbreviation. “Youth today do not define themselves on the spectrum of L.G.B.T.,”
