The Breakfast Club (12 Tones)

It's
really not as revolutionary as it sounds.  Anyone who's fingered an
instrument (and c'mon, who hasn't wanted to give an instrument the
finger) knows about the chromatic scale, the one with all the sharps and flats and even musical idiots know this little ditty-
Do- a deer, a female deer

Re- a drop of golden sun

Mi- a name i call myself

Fa- a long long way to run

So- a needle pulling thread

La- a note to follow so

Maine's Nicole Maines wins November

BiPM includes a poll in his Friday C&J to select who won the week. I decided I needed to riff off that for my title.

I don't know that I have ever read the magazine Glamour. I mean, I may have done so, once upon a time. When I was a child, I read whatever I could get my hands on, just for the joy of reading.

On November 10, Glamour honored its 2014 Women of the Year award recipients at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

Glamour's annual Women of the Year Awards is one of our favorite issues of the magazine, and the event marks one of the most inspiring nights of the year; it's a chance to celebrate trailblazing women from all walks of life—Hollywood stars, political and cultural leaders, groundbreaking scientists and researchers, and more come together to honor the women who helped to shape and change the year. But let's not forget that phenomenal women are all around us; to celebrate the spirit of Women of the Year, we named 50 standouts—one for every state. Flip through to see the hometown heroes whose work we recognize this year.

Flipping through the inspiring women from each state, one eventually encounters...

Our Ugly History

What's going on in America with regards to the killing of black men for pretty petty crimes so often now really reminds me of the old days of lynchings. In those days, the white folks in town played judge, jury, and executioner of a great many black folks who they had accused of some crime or another. They didn't get a trial.

Gender Prison: DoE issues Title IX guidelines on single-sex classes

Yesterday the Department of Education issued guidelines (36 pages) instructing schools which accept federal funding how to treat transgender students with regard to single-sex classes.

Although Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in federally funded education programs and activities, regulations issued by the Department authorize schools to offer single- sex classes or extracurricular activities under certain circumstances. In order to ensure that schools subject to Title IX comply with the Department’s requirements if they choose to offer single-sex classes and extracurricular activities, OCR provides the following responses to questions that schools should consider when assessing their compliance with Title IX. Although this document focuses on single-sex classes, some of the legal principles will also apply to single-sex schools. In order to gain a complete understanding of these legal requirements and recommendations, this document should be read in full.

--Catherine Lhamon, Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights

The Complicated Geography of Alice, by Jules Vilmur

I should admit up front that I don't often read books from the transgender genre. I do purchase them, but they become part of my vast library of books to be read at some future time.

There is a reason for that, in that I do plan to get my act together some day and add my own entry to the literature...and I don't want it to be tainted by what I have read from other sources. That is, I want it to be my narrative and not "the transgender narrative."
