Transgender Heroes: Total invalidation of transpeople in a single headline

 photo martine-rothblatt_zps692eccc0.jpgHow would you imagine it feels for a transgender person to be constantly denied the right to identity their own gender? Consider what it would be like if every day someone came up to you and told you that you were lying about who you really are.

Kat Hache of TheDailyDot takes on Henry Blodget of Business Insider for doing just that.

Blodget got to it really fast...in his headline: The Highest Paid Woman CEO Was Born a Man. The implication he's striving for should slap you in the face...as it does us transpeople: What Blodget really means is, "The highest paid woman CEO is not really a woman."

Gender Prison: Born this way

One of the main issues our detractors seem to have against us is the thought that because transition surgery involves genitalia, transgender people must be all about the act of sex.

While there are many reasons people might think transition is appropriate for them...and sex may be one, sex is undoubtedly not first and foremost. How do we know this?

All one has to do is look at the children. CBS news recently published an article about three of them: Born this way: Stories of young transgender children introduces us to Zoey, Venice, and Mati.

There is coding error in the video that appeared on CBS's Sunday Morning which I did not know how to repair, so it may be viewed at the above link.

What It Takes for Crunchyroll to Satisfy Bootleg Consumers

Adventures in a New Media Economy

I've written before about streaming video and legal distribution in niche media market ... though not quite so repeatedly about trains & sustainable energy, to be sure ... most recently in New Media Economy, Supporting Lesbian Works & Crowdfunding Classic Yuri Anime, 29 October of last year.

And I should note with respect to that topic, the Dear Brother series was fully crowdfunded in three box sets, so while Anime Sols is focusing on finishing up the releases before starting new Crowdfunding projects, it did in fact prove to be a successful approach to getting a legit release of what would otherwise have been an economically unviable title.

But that's not the topic this time around. To find out what the topic this time around happens to be, join the adventurous souls who keep on reading below the fold.
