I Was Recently Informed I'm Not a Transsexual | Advocate.com
“transsexual.”

“We don’t use that anymore,” they said. This was backed up by a young cisgender man, a UCLA queer studies major, who declared that the term was objectionable because it “medicalizes” trans people and inappropriately ties recognition of someone’s genital status — which is private — to their gender identity. So it was not only archaic but offensive.

I’d long known I was offensive

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.

Trans activist Paris Lees walks out of BBC Newsnight recording - Gay Star News
I’m not prepared to enter into a fabricated debate about trans people’s right to exist/express themselves. ‘There is no “debate”. Some people are trans – I’d have been very happy to go on & talk about the simple issue of human rights for trans people.’ [...] The community was already concerned after anti-trans academic Sheila Jeffreys was asked to appear on BBC Radio 4 show Woman’s Hour on 7 August to discuss her new book. In the segment, she explained without challenge how trans people ‘hurt people and society’. //&! on.fb.me/1N0IVex - Germaine Greer //&! bit.ly/1MnwKb6 - nobody needs a gender theory degree title to decide to wear make-up and dresses. //&!

Coming out day: Warum ein Coming out wichtig ist - Queer - bento
So lange es noch Menschen gibt, die wegen ihrer Homosexualität ihren Job verlieren, gemobbt und als Schwuchtel beschimpft werden. So lange Verwaltungsangestellte sich weigern, homosexuelle Paare zu trauen (SPIEGEL ONLINE). So lange nicht jeder überall heiraten und Kinder adoptieren kann. So lange die Selbstmordrate von Homosexuellen immer noch höher ist als die von Heterosexuellen So lange ein Coming out einer YouTuberin wie Melina Sophie, einer Schauspielerin oder eines Ex-Fußballprofis wie Thomas Hitzlsperger immer noch so große Aufmerksamkeit wert ist (Zeit Online). So lange Homosexuelle für ihre Entscheidung als mutig, dumm, verrückt bezeichnet werden. So lange ein Outing als schwieriger Schritt wahrgenommen wird. So lange die Menschen glauben, Ellen Page und ich gehören zu einer Gruppe Menschen. So lange ist der Coming Out Tag wichtig.

When no gender fits: A quest to be seen as just a person - The Washington Post
“I don’t want to be a girl wearing boy’s clothes, nor do I want to be a girl who presents as a boy,” Kelsey wrote. “I just want to be a person who is recognized as a person. That’s how I’m most comfortable. I’m just a person wearing people clothes, who likes to look like myself and have others see me how I see me.” In Kelsey’s mind, the body that would feel right wasn’t the body Kelsey had now. Kelsey wanted a redistribution of muscle, less on the hips and more in the upper body. A lower voice, though not too much — not to where it would sound like a man’s. Neutral.

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!]

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."

The Dispute Between Radical Feminism and Transgenderism
AND here the critique http://bit.ly/1tXlqLW & http://bit.ly/1ujpPJ9 // http://bit.ly/V1UxtS // http://bit.ly/1orNN4F // "In failing to provide a semblance of balance to the voices in the piece, this account becomes hopelessly skewed, and becomes little more than a radical feminist propaganda piece. Early on in her essay, Goldberg presents an extremely simplified and stereotyped view of trans women’s identities. She writes: “Trans women say that they are women because they feel female — that, as some put it, they have women’s brains in men’s bodies.” First, considering that the length of the article discusses trans people (and focuses heavily on trans women), to reduce the explanation of their complex experiences to three words — “they feel female” — is offensively reductionist. While such a passing nod to trans experiences might be not be out of place in a more LGBTQ-geared publication, in a more general consumption magazine[.]" + http://bit.ly/VkWUIA + http://huff.to/1Bo9aJr

What About the Guys Who Do Fit the 'Gay Stereotype'? - Maya Dusenbery - The Atlantic
[ People like to put people in Labeled Boxes. ] "People think gayness has something to do with femininity when really we just need to erase that stereotype from our minds," he said. "LGBT people come in all different types and shapes and forms." [...] "In sports right now, there are two different stereotypes—that there are no gay male athletes, and every female athlete is a lesbian," [...] "Female professional athletes are already gender non-conforming. Male ones are still worshiped as exemplars of traditional masculinity." [...] There's no doubt those are stereotypes that need unpacking. Sociologists have long noted that homophobia is a fundamental ingredient of masculinity in modern American culture. [...] Ever since we've been asking about it in public opinion polls, men have been more likely than women to espouse anti-gay views—a fact that buttressed the theory that masculinity is intimately connected with homophobia[.]
