Transgender in the Hoosegow

Interesting word, hoosegow. Etymology Online says it is probably a mispronunciation of the Spanish juzgado: tribunal, court…past participle of juzgar: to judge, from Latin, judicare: to judge.

Gene Dickerson, 39, is a transgender state inmate in Dallas, Pennsylvania state prison. Because of Pennsylvania prison rules, she is housed, of course, with a male population.

Dickerson has filed a lawsuit in federal court, alleging unsafe living conditions because of her transgender status. She also alleges that she has suffered harassment and discrimination at the hands of Department of Corrections officials because of her gender.

Dickerson says that DOC officials have failed to screen her cellmates for transphobia and homophobia, thereby exposing her to dangerous situations.

Fashion Writer B. Scott sues BET and Viacom for gender discrimination

B. Scott accepts the descriptor "transgender."

Transgender is the state of one’s gender identity (self-identification as woman, man, neither or both) not matching one’s assigned sex (identification by others as male, female or intersex based on physical/genetic sex).

--Wikipedia

It is by that definition that I accept and welcome the ‘transgender’ label with open arms.

--B. Scott

Scott is suing BET and Viacom for the treatment received while Scott was serving as Style Stage Correspondent for the 2013 BET Awards Pre-Show. Scott refers to the event as an "unfortunate incident."

It is also by that definition that BET and Viacom willingly and wrongfully discriminated against my gender identity during the 2013 BET Awards Pre-Show.

Let’s be clear — I’m suing BET and Viacom for a true public apology and to be fairly remunerated for the time lost, humiliation and emotional distress this entire situation has put me through.

Sex change surgery performed on 16-month-old South Carolina child without consent

 

 photo MCBIKE_zps88641981.jpgM. C. Crawford is 8 years old. He was Identified as a male at birth until doctors determined that he had ambiguous genitalia, with parts of both female and male reproductive structures. When a court terminated the parental rights of his mother and he was abandoned by his father, he was placed in state custody. At 16 months old doctors removed his penis and one testicle, leaving enough to form a clitoris and labia. A bit after that the child was adopted in South Carolina by Pam and Mark Crawford.

The first thought that I had was, let's make sure they don't do the surgery.

--Pam Crawford

Unfortunately the Crawfords were too late. They raised M. C. as a girl until about a year ago, when he told his parents he wanted to be raised as a boy.

On Tuesday lawyers for the Crawford family said they were filing suit against the Department of Social Services.
