Litigating equality

Boyertown, PA. It's not too far from Philadelphia, located between Amityville and Congo on Ironstone Creek in Berks County.

It is the site of the most recent attack by the so-called Alliance Defending Freedom on equal treatment of transgender students in our schools.

ADF is claiming that

Boyertown School District’s bathroom policy constitutes sexual harassment and violates personal privacy.

Representation

I usually post earlier in the day, but I had an appointment with my doctor. I was running out of my pills. I take 11 per day. :-(

I decided rather late today to post something. It's my birthday, after all.

69. Never thought I would see this. But here it is.

Got some videos for you to view.

No Foolie

I suppose it was bound to happen. Violence against transgender women is so common in Mexico.

The civil rights organization Transgender Europe has documented 247 killings of transgender people in Mexico between January 2008 and April 2016, the second-highest number in the world, after Brazil.

Earlier this month, a transgender woman's mutilated body was stuffed into a suitcase and dumped by the side of a road.

Unfair housing

I'm positive that most people are not familiar with the terms of the Fair Housing Act, which also goes by the identification of Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968. It is supposed to be enforced by HUD...but that requirement did not foresee the Trump Administration.

Stepping backward on civil rights at HHS

Roger Severino most recently was director of the DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society at the Heritage Foundation, where he concerned himself with "religious liberty, marriage and life issues." But the Trump Administration has been staffing itself with Heritage people, so Severino has been chosen to be director of the Office of Civil Rights at HHS.

They're calling it a "Free Speech Bus." By "they,' I mean The National Organization for Marriage, the International Organization for the Family, and a new hate group called CitizenGO. The latter is a Madrid-based organization with ties to the Church. The leading figure in all these organization is, of course, Brian S. Brown.
