Black / White Doll

This video breaks my heart.

The last comment when I found this says:

this is so sad. :( i just wanna cry when i see this......

I feel the same way.

You can see the whole video called A Girl Like Me below.

Good Morning America did an update and it seems better now:

A little girl in Kiri Davis' short film,
"A Girl Like Me," chooses the 
white doll when asked which one 
is better.
(ABC News)

Sixty years and one biracial president later, "GMA" gathered 19 black children, ranging in age from 5 to 9 years old, in Norfolk, Va.

Some of our results differed vastly from those of the original experiment. For example, 88 percent of our children happily identified with the dark-skinned doll.

Forty-two percent of the children wanted to play with the black doll compared to 32 percent for the white doll.

"GMA" then moved on to that question about which doll is nice and which is not. Sixty years ago, 56 percent of the children chose the white doll. The majority of our kids chose black or both and 32 percent chose the white doll.

Sometimes the choice had nothing to do with race.

"The bad doll is on my right because that's just the way it looks at me. It kind of creeps me out with the beady eyes," said 9-year-old Chareese Hicks, a fourth-grade participant who picked the white doll as bad.
Thanks to The View for doing a piece on this and setting me out to find out more about this.

Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and Archbishop Niederauer

I love this video and how Fox News' O'Reilly went appeplectic when he discussed this "invasion of transvestites" to a Catholic church in San Francisco. 

Read the lips of the guy at 1:36. He did not seem too upset about having the sisters take communion. 

October 7, 2007. The Catholic Archbishop of San Francisco is videotapes giving communion to two members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, an anti-Catholic group of transvestites that is infamous in San Francisco for pornography, mocking the Church and blaspheming Christ. (from the notes on the YouTupe video.)

Bill O'Reilly of Fox News called it an "unbelievable outrage" and hundreds of angry e-mails poured into the Catholic Archdiocese of San Francisco.

Among those in the media who reacted to the situation was Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly, who said on his Oct. 14 broadcast that the men were "gay militants in bizarre dress" whose intent was to mock the Mass and Archbishop Niederauer.

The “Sisters” are a group of men who dress up in outlandish outfits and white facial make-up mocking Catholic nuns and adopting blasphemous, sexualized names like “Sister Porn Again” and “Sister Roz Erection.” Their motto is “Go forth and sin some more!” While the group is detested by orthodox Catholics as epitomizing homosexual activists’ perverted anti-Catholic and anti-Christian bigotry, it is respected in San Francisco as a charity group that raises funds for causes like AIDS.

Complicated yes, but now Engaged.

Sunset on the Beach

Many of us first notice the change in her facebook profile when her "Relationship Status:" went from "Single" to "Engaged."
What best describes our relationshp now? “Complicated”? Maybe before, but not now (well - there are still complications but those can be remedied). “In a Relationship”? It doesn’t adequately describe the level of commitment we’ve both expressed to one another. “Married”? Not legally. Not yet. “Engaged?” In our world that means a lifetime of singular devoted and commitment. We’ve both exchanged rings so, traditionally, that would apply.  It’s as accurate a label as any.

I could not be happier for them!

Interesting and pointless spam

I am getting several of these a day. Twenty one so far.  I would normally say it was spam, but it is not trying to sell anything. I just don't know what to think about them. I have written back, but so far no replies.

Charlotte Goiar (1972 - ) HBS activist.

Zagria made a post in her Gender Variant Biography blog. 

Charlotte want me to take down my page, and I told Zagria in a comment they will be asking her to take down these pages.

05 MARCH 2009

Charlotte Goiar (1972 - ) HBS activist.

Charlotte is a Barcelona resident and a licensed Human Rights Investigator. She is the person who developed theconcept of Síndrome de Harry Benjamin, and in 2005 founded the first HBS organization.

She maintains that HBS is an intersex condition developed in the early stages of foetal development, and that an HBS woman is not a transsexual. She is further contentious in that she and her movement has become known for its disparaging of other transgendered persons, even post-ops, and GLBT persons in general.

She dislikes the Press-For-Change leadership, in that the UK Gender Recognition Actallows for non-ops and other transsexuals whom Charlotte would not regard as HBS, and has a similar opinion of Carla Antonelli who worked for the similar Gender Identity Law in Spain.

Lynn ConwayAndrea JamesCalperina Addams and Marci Bowers are also disparaged on her forum in that they not anti-transgender. Charlotte has approved of the situation for transsexuals in Iran. She regards the term ‘transsexuality’ as pejorative in that she takes it to imply a choice.

Some HBS activists have since split with her.

Charlotte sometimes uses the name Charlotte T. Guren, and wrote to Laura Amato that Guren was the name to be used, but SHB-Info.Org still calls her Goiar, and she had a Myspace page as Goiar until early 2009.
