The Trans Movement Needs a New, Science Based Strategy | Brynn Tannehill
Tuesday's defeat of HERO highlights several conclusions that the LGBT movement needs to take to heart for the next decade or so. Foremost is that we will not win transgender issues directly at the ballot box, or in the gerrymandered republican legislatures which dominate the political landscape. [...] When opponents frame legal protections for transgender people as a choice between a group strangers (who are suspected of being perverts anyway) and the safety your wives and daughters, transgender people will lose every time. So far, anti-LGBT forces have been far more successful at pushing their narrative. I don't foresee this changing anytime soon. [...] Convincing large numbers of people driven by fear and religious beliefs simply will not happen. &! &! &!

BBC News - Charlotte Church attacks 'sexist' music industry
The music industry has a "culture of demeaning women" that forces stars to sell themselves as sex objects. The business is "a male dominated industry with a juvenile perspective on gender and sexuality" and increasingly wants "sex objects that appear child-like", Church claimed. [...] Sinead O'Connor wrote an open letter to the pop star, warning her not to be exploited by the music business. [...] "Short burst messaging." (Shallow Content with no Context. Cheap. Meaningless. Disappearing in the ether.) + + Look what the entertainment industry did to so many people (ie Germany Gina-Lisa Lohfink & Co + + !!! !!!
