11:24 Question of the Week

"One deepest dark secret is how many transsexual male to female that have custody of minor children? I have had custody of my daughter since birth, I do not start the transition until she was 5 years, we had our up and downs together she has all ways been at my side and on my side. We went through hate crimes together, we faced haltered prejudice, discrimination, stereotyping by some mental health care professionals that believed transsexual should not raise children simply being transsexual pollutes, deviates the mind of a child. Is there any other transsexual out there raising children in transition with out the help of the other birth parent."

Michael Bailey's "The Man Who Would Be Queen" as an awards finalist perpetuates an insult to the trans community based on the pejorative content of the book.
