Transgender people get to own the truth of who’s transphobic

Trans flag 4

On a certain level I don’t understand hate. I can’t maintain it against individuals as it takes too much energy; I can’t hold it against classes of people because I’m aware, as a member of a minority community, of unintentional (or sometimes willful) ignorance that bigotry arises from. It takes a certain amount of self-awareness […]

Hillcrest’s new digs

Historical echoes and present danger

Trump 221

Godwin’s Law, in original form, states: “As an online discussion continues, the probability of a reference or comparison to Hitler or Nazis approaches 1.” Interpretations and corollaries include that a thread should end once this happens, and the person to mention Hitler loses the argument. May it rest in peace, another casualty of President Trump. […]

SDHDF audit? Gala?

The airport protests that forced coverage of the situation were a critical response, as were the lawyers who came to offer advice and counsel. A Federal Court injunction has calmed the situation for now, but what if it hadn’t worked? As the ban […]

Not too much or too little, but just the right amount of hormones


As with most everything in life, balance is key. And if your hormones are out of sync, then your body can become completely out of whack. Having either too much or too little of an essential hormone throws things off kilter and can lead to a disaster either way (just like having too much or […]

‘From this day forth, we are all transgender’

Transgender Flag 1

This past weekend found me in San Francisco giving two speeches, one at the Design Center and the other at the Holiday Inn Civic Center. Of course I addressed the issues of the day; especially the president’s recent assault on transgender civil rights which I stated was an assault on all American civil rights. Part […]

Time went


“Where did the time go?” Who knows, but it went! What a shock to spot that gorgeous, still undulating lava lamp in a display window and then realize it’s in an antique shop. Likewise, when you alone sing along to “Jail House Rock,” enact the whole Who’s on First or confuse the young around you […]
