BCE to The Suffragettes
02-06-1899 – 10-30-1968 Ramon Novarro – Born in Durango, Mexico. He was a Mexican film, stage, and television actor who began his career as a
leading man in silent films in 1917. Novarro was promoted by MGM as a “Latin lover.” After the death of Rudolph Valentino in 1926, he became known as a sex symbol. His greatest success was in Ben-Hur (1925). The revealing costumes he wore caused a sensation. He was troubled all his life by his conflicted feelings toward his Roman Catholic religion and his homosexuality. His life-long struggle with alcoholism is often traced to these issues. Novarro was romantically involved with journalist Herbert Howe, who was also his publicist in the late 1920s.
On October 30, 1968, Novarro was murdered by Paul and Tom Ferguson, whom he had hired from an agency to come to his Laurel Canyon home for sex. The two brothers thought Novarro had a large sum of money hidden in his house. The money was non-existent and they left with only $20 that he had in his bathrobe pocket.

what happened to accepting and loving yourself as you are?
it is okay to not be heterosexual and no longer illegal or a death sentence in many nations
being trans is okay, but it is special rights to expect others to ignore their ordinary human senses and knowledge
it is not okay to treat lightly words that are lived experience
they may be on lists and in dictionaries, which list all words and their opposites
nor project your own self loathing as hatred on the part of others
the disregard for protected heterosexual women’s rights, protected sexual orientation rights, along with ignoring that it is heterosexual men’s word phobia to explain murder as a reasonable response to transpersons or gay/bisexual men.
and the fetishizing lesbians – cotton ceiling the confession
is at best sexual harassment and at worst, a hate crime
the debate between bisexual and pansexual also has to stop.
to each word specific meaning, and any individual may decide for themself but not for other individuals nor “self identify” into demographics which reject by non recognition owing to not shared characteristics for those with non-procreative sexual orientations
rights are to the public square, and not in not for public space, nor private lives.

Our Daily Elvis
LGBTQ2 Blogger Nina Notes:
Most of the above is copied from one of the sites cited as sources in the daily post and as linked at the end of every post.
the history of nonheterosexuals and different historical eras views are such that there is a there is a danger to apply current decadish of time, in 2021 to past decades and centuries; particularly without application of complete history.
There is a difference between adopting male attire in the era when clothing was spelled out in law, and lesbians who passed in public, differ from those who only change clothing for personal sexual gratification, in private “cross dressors” in the language of this same era.
Laws regarding clothing exist in many nations, including capitol punishment, this is why sexual orientation is a demographic, That heterosexual women continue to be denied reproductive rights, education and professions, even where won at court; that women are a demographic. That male and female persons who are ethnically different from the majority population and with differing experiences being merged into colour blind visible minorities are differing demographics.
the farther back in time the given individual is, and why on this blog, there is a under theme of Elvis Presley, as the most prominent modern era person of the 1900s Current Era; who was photographed almost every day of his adult life., and who’s number of days on this planet have resulted in his being one of the most recognizable individuals across all cultures on the planet, which in 1950s was 1 billion people, and by his death almost 4 billion, to the 8 billion currently existing on earth.
