Pakistan just issued its first passport with a transgender category - Vox.com

Good news and an interesting look at another people. We are and have been sacred in many cultures.

Because it's a frequent misunderstanding, me asking "why?" doesn't automatically mean I'm disagreeing.

How to Survive the Summer When Summer Makes You Miserable

Yes, yes! This is me exactly!

"If getting overheated makes you feel irritable and stressed (as it does for me) or depressed, make staying in the air-conditioning a priority."

...

"Some doctors think that the bright, long days modulate melatonin production and affect mood, just as low light levels affect mood for some people; others think that the long days wreak havoc with circadian rhythms and so disrupt sleep cycles."

...

"Some people report that the bright sun feels like an 'assault' or an 'attack'"

How the Trump-Russia Data Machine Games Google to Fool Americans :: Politics :: Features :: Fake News :: Paste

"we’re in the middle of something we’ve never experienced in America: a full-on psychological war"

...

"What’s different now is that this propaganda is being gamed by professionals in a massive, orchestrated data campaign at a volume, pace, and consistency"

...

"The result? The American psyche is being transformed. Truthfully, it already has been. We’ve entered a new political, philosophical, social, and cultural era. People don’t seem to understand yet, or aren’t willing to face it, but reality is completely malleable."

This is why I'm constantly saying that Marketing (big "M") is evil. Marketing has conditioned us for decades to respond to these kinds of messages. And now that we've been softened up it's been weaponized against us.

Seventh Circuit Ruling Marks Landmark Decision in Favor of Transgender Rights - Rewire

YES. EXACTLY. THIS.

"A transgender student’s presence in the restroom provides no more of a risk to other students’ privacy rights than the presence of an overly curious student of the same biological sex who decides to sneak glances at his or her classmates performing their bodily functions,"
