Terrorism: Why Does it Frighten Us So Much? (1998)

Posted on Sep 10, 2013 in Newsletters, Newspapers, Politics, TG Forum

Think the nineties made the sixties look like the fifties? Just wait. We’re all going to get even more seriously crazy as soon as 2001 rolls around. Hell, we may just jump the gun and do it at 2000.

Unless she can locate a copy and copies of two divorce decrees she no longer has to show changes to her name, she will most likely lose the right to drive a motor vehicle.

Rodney and the Rest of Us (1993)

Posted on Apr 8, 2013 in Gender, Magazines, Politics

Three transgendered people were murdered in Atlanta last year, their bodies found in ditches. Another was shot. No suspects, no charges, no convictions. The year before, a transgendered person was found murdered in her apartment at Christmastime. There is a curious apathy in the police department about this sort of violence, and it extends to gay people as well.
