Question of the Week
" Why are there so few double recliners? Are there so few couples who might like to sit so close together ? "
" I am new to this site and would like to know how I am to change my name prior to SRS. I was born in RI and the info I found on the IFGE site says that I have to have a letter from the SRS surgeon to change the name on my birth certificate. Since I'm not yet a candidate for SRS, how can I change my name. "
|18:52||Hal Fuller's Twisted Nasty News|
HBO television this week showed for the first time a new drama about a married couple with a son and daughter in which the husband 'comes out' as transsexual. Tina Sievers, a transsexual who served as an advisor to the production, talks about her experience and opinion of the results.
Tina is director of continuing education at Highland Community College in Freeport, Illinois. She is currently in the middle of her 'Real Life Test', which she began, coincidently, on May 20... the first day that the movie "Normal" started shooting.

|65:47||In times of war, we usually hear plenty about the military battles. Too often overlooked, though, is the experience of women civilians, who are often targets for rape and other violence. Isis Nusair has been working on women's rights and human rights issues in the Middle East, Morocco, Palestine, Algeria and more, and she shares with us some of her primary observations and concerns.|
