    The Week In Transgenderism

    | Apr 21, 2014 | Comments (0)

    What kind of transgender related news was popping up in the media last week? Calpernia Addams got some people p.o.ed at her for a op-ed she wrote about objectionable words. The Indian Supreme Court officially recognized the “third gender” in that country. A young FtM in Oregon is fighting with his college over housing. A Catholic college held their third annual drag show and eyebrows were raised at the hostess’s costume. Photos from Casa Susanna. The D.O.J. is enforcing TG civil rights. All that and a lot more is waiting for you in TWIT.

This outrage was supported by… What? Oh. Sorry Angela. You meant Full Time as a WOMAN. *puts away […]

    Weak or Strong?

    Today Nikki Nicole asks if you think TGs are weak or strong. She asks because she’s noticed that some of the community seem to embrace the word “sissy.” Are you a sissy if you have male parts but dress up like a woman?
