The same federal judge that ruled that a convicted murderer has a right to sex reassignment surgery has now ruled that the state of California has no right to a stay of the requirement to give him sex reassignment surgery while the state appeals the ruling to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Judge Jon Tigar ruled that the state must take all of the actions reasonably necessary to provide Jeffrey Norsworthy sex reassignment surgery as promptly as possible.

Fallon Fox @FallonFox Kate Kendell @KateKendell & @NCLRights (USA)

funnyFallon Fox is a violent Man named Boyd Burton who beats up Women for a living. He is able to do this thanks to the advocacy of the National Center of Lesbian Rights. In April 2015, the NCLR removed its name from an anti-lesbian petition against the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival. This act caused Boyd to lose his mind, and he publicly berated Kate Kendell here.

In response, the NCLR SCRUBBED its website of the reference to its advocacy for Boyd.

State v. Bridges (USA)

13766294-mmmain

An Ohio appellate court affirmed the conviction of Andrey Bridges, who murdered Cemia Dove, a transgender woman of color. As most readers of this blog know, transgender women of color are the members of the transgender community who are most at risk of murder and assault, and they are almost 100% always murdered by men. However, now that the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival no longer exists, we have every reason to believe this violence will end.*

State v. Bridges

Andrey Bridges sentenced to life in prison in stabbing death of transgender woman _ cleveland

* This is a sarcastic commentary on the priorities of the GLBTQ Movement.
