Gallup Poll Says 50 Percent of Americans Accept Gay Relations; Oh Really?

So, now that we're halfway there, according to Gallup, should we lay this puppy to rest? Clayton M. McCleskey of the Dallas Morning News believes so. "So, hopefully this all adds up to mean we'll soon be able to lay this hot button topic to rest and move on. There are so many other, more important issues that we should spend our time debating."

Well, let's see now. Why don't I get together with my ex-girlfriend for the day? We can hold hands and walk down Chicago's Michigan Avenue. Along the route we'll kiss, once or twice. I wonder how far we'll get before some passerby shouts something cruel to us or worse. Michigan Avenue ain't Boys Town. It's populated with all sorts of individuals, including homophobes.

Do You Give a Damn?


As a bisexual woman posting on a sex-positive, gender equality website, I'd be preaching to the choir if it weren't for the fact that Sex Gender Body gets many different readers.

"The Give a Damn Campaign is for everybody who cares about gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender equality." The project is the work of the True Colors Fund, founded by Cyndi Lauper, who has been a GLBT advocate for 25 years. (Cyndi says she's straight. I have to admit, I thought she wasn't.)

Men who want to have a woman's body (Autogynephilia for Dummies)

On men who are turned on by the idea of having sex in a woman's body. Are they perverts or something natural?

The Human Race

 

The issue of Caster Semenya, the 18 year old female athlete who has won two gold and one silver medal for her country - South Africa - makes me wonder. It makes me wonder how far we have come in the past 15 years post Apartheid, and how far we have come since the inclusion in the Constitution of certain phrases which are supposed to guarantee equality for people on the grounds of gender, gender identity and sexual orientation with everyone else.

Despite certain shortcomings in the wording of this document, which still allows a degree of hate crime and hate speech to slip through the loopholes, it seems clear that such a shift still has not taken place in the mindset of the people of South Africa. Clearly this also has not taken place in other countries either.

It has been reported that this fracas had a prequel three years ago in SA, and that the questions that arose now around Caster's gender could have and should have been answered then.

Following the abysmal treatment of a star athlete, SA is now making all sorts of complaints about the way she was handled - or should I say - manhandled?

SA is supposedly complaining to the UN about it, and the papers are filled with notification of outrage at the handling of this woman’s' human rights. But I have to ask a question:

Is this outrage because she is a woman who has been accused of being a man - or is it outrage because of the transgender issue?
