TRANSGENDER … THE ‘T’ IS SILENT?

The transgender community, (the “T” in LGBT), hasn’t had an easy existence

There was plenty of hope during the recent years when rights for the LGBT community were recognized as basic human rights, including transgender rights.

However, the Drumpf administration has taken it upon themselves to start the dismantling of these human rights.

From Melanie Nathan, a blogger I follow  …. “Today, February 22, that transphobic homophobe the putrid Trump AG, Jeff Sessions, did exactly what we thought he would do the moment he assumed office – AND so hand in hand with that other homophobe and transphobic piece of work Pence – as well as an apparently forced Betsy DeVos Of the Department of Education – announced that Title IX will no longer be enforced to protect transgender students equally in all school facilities, including restrooms.

Title IX guaranteed students the right to a safe and supportive learning environment regardless of gender and protects them from discrimination.
There is no reasonable basis for them to do this except spite and hate of a community that deserves protection and recognition.”
So disgusted!!

I think this is the beginning.

Like the #MuslimBan, the LGBT community is in the cross-hairs now. 
Bad things are headed this way!!

Transgender Children & Youth: Understanding the Basics

One of the most important and difficult tasks that parents face is how to best support their children while also setting the kind of boundaries and structure that helps them grow up to become responsible and successful adults. Sure, children and teens love to test the boundaries that adults set for them. But it is important to make distinctions between instances where “kids are being kids” and when they’re asserting things about themselves that are critical to their identity and development – as is the case with gender identity and expression.

~Gavin Grimm: Meet the Boy Laverne Cox Shouted Out at the Grammys~

(this case is so much more important now)

by MARY EMILY O’HARA

February 13, 2017

Who is Gavin Grimm — and why does Hollywood’s most high-profile transgender actress want you to learn about him?

Grimm is a 17-year-old high school senior in Virginia whose fight against the local school board will be argued at the Supreme Court on March 28. The transgender boy’s long road to the highest court in the country started at age 15, when he was forced to endure a series of school board meetings at which adults debated whether or not he should be allowed to use the boys bathroom at school.

ACLU attorney Josh Block told NBC News that Grimm’s case has taken on a new significance with President Trump now overseeing federal agencies like the Department of Education.

For the last 20 years the overwhelming majority of lower courts have been holding that out civil rights laws against sex discrimination protect transgender people,” said Block. “Gavin’s case is the first time the Supreme Court will consider the question and reaffirm that transgender people are protected. With a presidential new administration, these protections are more critical than ever.”

But the case, “Gloucester County School Board v. G.G.,” stands to impact every transgender teen and child in the nation: the Supreme Court will use it to decide whether Title IX protections on the basis of sex can be interpreted to include gender identity, and whether Obama-era guidance from the Department of Education can be considered the law of the land.

SHE PERSISTED

#ShePersisted goes viral after Senate votes to silence Warren

BY PAULINA FIROZI

02/08/17 08:10 AM EST

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) inadvertently created a rallying cry for supporters of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) when he rebuked her after the Senate voted to prevent her from speaking.

As Democrats held the Senate floor overnight to protest Sen. Jeff Sessions’s (R-Ala.) nomination for attorney general, Warren quoted a 1986 letter that the late Coretta Scott King, a civil rights activist and wife of Martin Luther King Jr., wrote opposing Sessions’s nomination for a federal judgeship at the time.

goldswirl

“Sen. Warren was giving a lengthy speech. She had appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”

The Senate voted 49-43 along party lines to prevent Warren from speaking on the Senate floor for the remainder of debate on Sessions’s nomination.

The line has been drawn in the sand.

Executive versus Judicial power!

The stay was ordered and the Drumpf administration has appealed.

The hearing has been set for February 7, 2017 at 6 PM EST.

U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE JAMES ROBART

‘The threat from radical Islamic terrorism is very real, just look at what is happening in Europe and the Middle-East.

Courts must act fast!’

Drumpf, the ‘so-called president’

bline

In a tweet coming shortly after Robart’s initial ruling, he called him a “so-called judge,” whose decision put national security in jeopardy.

The context of this bullish statement directed at the courts is that, on Tuesday, February 7, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will take up the issue of the legality of Trump’s presently suspended Muslim ban. This hearing comes as just one stop in an already long and winding legal battle between those opposed to the ban and those in favor of it.

Seattle Federal Judge James Robart ruled against the ban late last Friday, February 3, and the Trump administration has been up in arms ever since then, trying to get it reinstated.

-SO-CALLED JUDGE-

‘NOTORIOUS R. B.G.’

The lack of respect for the judicial branch of the USA government is amazing.

Didn’t expect any different.

This is true to his ‘form’.

The judicial branch operates separate from the executive.

It stands on its own.

Guess, one more time, Drumpf has shown his utter ignorance!

Feb 4, 2017 8:55 PM
Drumpf launched an early morning Twitter offensive against a federal judge Saturday, February 4, after U.S. District Judge James Robart in Seattle declared a nationwide stay on Mr. Drumpf’s travel ban.

The ‘so-called president‘ defended his immigration order, which prohibits refugees or any citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the U.S., in the series of tweets.

He also swore that Robart’s temporary restraining order, which effectively freezes the executive order’s most controversial provisions, would be “overturned”.

(We will wait and see!)

DISGRACED IN ALABAMA

Roy Moore Suspended From Alabama Supreme Court For Anti-Gay Marriage Order

~KARMA~

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore suspended over same-sex marriage order
By Ray Sanchez, CNN

(September 30, 2016)

Alabama’s chief justice Roy Moore was suspended without pay Friday, September 30,  for the rest of his term for directing probate judges to enforce the state’s ban on same-sex marriage.

redlineb

The state Court of the Judiciary, in a 50-page decision, cited Moore’s “disregard for binding federal law” as a reason for the suspension.
Moore’s administrative order to probate judges was issued in January – seven months after a landmark Supreme Court ruling legalized gay and lesbian nuptials nationwide.
Moore’s term runs through January 2019.

He is 69 and will be ineligible to run for re-election because of his age.

polusa
Friday’s ruling also cited Moore’s “history with this court,” saying it was the second time he had been brought before the judiciary court for “actions grossly inconsistent with his duties as Chief Justice.”

Native American tribe takes oil fight to the United Nations

CANNON BALL, NORTH DAKOTA

The simmering showdown here between the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the company building the Dakota Access crude-oil pipeline began as a legal battle.

It has turned into a movement.

We are ALL connected through NATURE!! 

Over the past few weeks, thousands of Native Americans representing tribes from all over the country have traveled to this central North Dakota reservation to camp in a nearby meadow and show solidarity with a tribe they think is once again receiving a raw deal at the hands of commercial interests and the U.S. government.

That river is the source of water for the reservation’s 8,000 residents.

Any leak, tribal leaders argue, would cause immediate and irreparable harm. And tribal leaders point to what they consider a double standard, saying that the pipeline was originally going to cross the Missouri north of Bismarck, the state capital, but was rerouted because of powerful opposition that did not want a threat to the water supply there.

The tribe says it also is fighting the pipeline’s path because, even though it does not cross the reservation, it traverses sacred territory taken away from the tribe in a series of treaties that have been forced upon it over the past 150 years.

There are several specific topics implied by this graphic.

Poisoning anyone, in any way, is a crime punished by law and entails jail time.

Corporations aren’t people … “Citizens United”.

It’s healthier to consume products that are local grown.

Seems that #ArrestGovSnyder” is right on target.
