LGBTQ2 for February 3

BCE to The Suffragettes

1821 – The first female physician in the U.S., Elizabeth Blackwell (3 February 1821 – 31 May 1910)was born near Bristol, England. As a girl, her family moved to New York State. She was awarded her MD by the Medical Institute of Geneva, New York, in 1849. She then established a hospital in New York City run by an all-female staff. She was also active in training women to be nurses for service in the U.S. Civil War. She was the first woman to graduate from medical school, a pioneer in promoting the education of women in medicine in the United States, and a social and moral reformer in both the United States and in the United Kingdom. Her sisterEmilywas the third woman in the US to get a medical degree. None of the five Blackwell sisters ever married. Since 1949, the American Medical Women’s Association has awarded the Elizabeth Blackwell Medal annually to a woman physician. The Judy Chicago artwork The Dinner Party features a place setting for Elizabeth Blackwell.

1874 – Lesbian writer Gertrude Stein (February 3, 1874 – July 27, 1946) was born in Allegheny, Pennsylvania. She was an American novelist, poet, playwright, and art collector. Multifaceted, complicated, and impenetrable, Stein was like the cubist paintings she admired so much. She once summed up her long life with partner Alice B. Toklas  (April 30, 1877 – March 7, 1967) by writing “I love my love because she is peculiar.”

 Stein moved to Paris in 1903, making France her home for the remainder of her life. A literary innovator and pioneer of Modernist literature, Stein’s work broke with the narrative, linear, and temporal conventions of the 19th-century. She was also known as a collector of Modernist art. In 1933, Stein published a kind of memoir of her Paris years, The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas, written in the voice of Toklas, her life partner. The book became a literary bestseller and brought Stein into the light of mainstream attention. She met Alice B. Toklas on September 8, 1907, on Toklas’s first day in Paris, at Michael and Sarah Stein’s apartment. In the 1980’s, a cabinet in the Yale University Beinecke Library, which had been locked for an indeterminate number of 

gertrude-stein-alice-b-toklas

years was opened and found to contain some 300 love letters written by Stein and Toklas. Stein is the author of one of the earliest coming out stories (published in 1950 as Things as They Are), written in 1903 and suppressed by the author. Her essay Miss Furr and Miss Skeene (written 1909-1911, published 1922) is one of the first homosexual revelation stories to be published. The work contains the word “gay” over one hundred times, perhaps the first published use of the word “gay” in reference to same-sex relationships, uniformed readers missed the homosexual content.

1913 – The 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified, granting Congress the authority to collect income taxes.

Although he was not transgender, and it is believed that his killers were not aware that he was gay, he is often included in several transgender memorial lists.

LGBTQ2 blogger Nina Notes: the killers would not care if their victim was gay or trans, but would probably enjoy raping a lesbian more than other women. And that there is an issue within LGBT over which category shows the difference between, eh.

“As an Indigenous Two-Spirited gay person living with learning disabilities, it’s always been crucial to me to share who I am and be my authentic self in every facet of my life, including my professional life,” says Granger. “Growing up and even now, I rarely see myself represented in media, in educational circles, or in management roles. For me, it’s so important for our younger generations to see themselves in those areas and in others.

“Young people need to see that they can be successful, no matter who they are or what equity seeking group they may belong to. To be recognized for my passion, my dedication and support for our equity-seeking communities, and for my overall contribution to Cambrian is an absolute honour.”

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.

What do you call….an(d) answer

What do you call a religion that has no theology, it’s based on logic, reason and science and promotes individual thinking and needs you to question everything, and it’s moral code is based on common sense of doing what’s right Without Blindly Following a law, rule, a creed or dogma, or a tradition, or a religious and or political ideology and no need to gather in a tax exempt building once a week to pass the basket and listening to a con artist speaker or preacher who only care how much money he or she could make from you or some naïve, gullible, uneducated sheep minded people still following a dark age book written by some con men to fool the fools who believe them without question but with great devotion?

Thank you Nina ❤

you are kindly welcome I really needed that laugh.

we have to be alert this Canada election 2021 to the “conscious rights” that doctors are claiming to refuse abortion services – a new way to say religious rights or freedom of religion, when ideas do not have rights unless they are patentable… and that gives a person rights twice.. so we need to co-ordinate messages in our respective spheres of influence

because trans are trying the same thing and it is gaslighting to tell anyone to ignore their own perceptions and as a lesbian being called a terf while no one is paying attention to the fetish cotton ceiling or noticing the appalling terminology being used in the LGBT literature of front hole and back hole. as if women would describe our own bodies that very penis reference manner..

no one has to right to walk up to anyone and say you have to date me or you are bigot or start talking about genitals, which is the core of the trans dating debate.. which at the end of the planet, when children are soldiers and mass disasters.. who dates transgender is not in the top 1000 concerns. and as a lesbian on the concern about dating, I am very concerned lesbians and even heterosexual men are being told they do not have a no… finally something lesbians and straight men do have in common, but homophobia and transphobia are the hetero men’s words to make their having assaulted, raped and murdered reasonable. whereas, for lesbians, saying no individually is exhausting so it needs to be said as a demographic.

that religion and transgender theory may not be questioned, means they may be dismissed without debate.

that is not how reality, nor academia works

and co-opting intersectionality of ethnicity for genitals

and saying diversity while defining words to include the opposite

is to end the meaning of words, not expand them

and no person is obligated to ignore their own senses and knowledge on behalf of another, especially a stranger with no positive reason to be self identifying into a demographic defined most understandably to any person as not involving a penis, regardless of how the person refers to or names it.

Lesbians are not nonmen who are attracted to other non men

nor are lesbians heterosexual men in women’s bodies

and doctors can only observe and record what is measureable

doctors do not assign, unless there has been some question of what was observed or an accidental mutilation and cover up, as in documented cases of doctors using patients to make names for the doctors to name things

if a person lives in a nation where human rights, which include responsibility

then no one has any right to redefine words or call you named and accuse you of bigtory for not dating a person who does not appeal to you

any more than you will have a bad time after death if you do not obey a religious concept of how to behave depending on your gender

which, gender is your biologicial sex, owing to be homo sapiens, a sexually reproducing species

with bisexuals enjoying both

gay men and lesbians enjoying one

and persons who are trans, have pansexuals and fetishizers

while all women

from hetero to bisexual to pansexual and especially lesbians

have male fetishizers, and cotton ceiling is the confession of denying lesbians human rights, including forming a demographic on shared characteristics

which those clothes from heterosexual from a lesbian perspective, do not.

as individuals and as a demographic, being an ally means respecting boundaries where human rights gets to define them: no to a date

and responding to no with name calling, debates and redefining words

accusations of bigotry

is more than a red flag, and reveals the exact relationship being demanded

and bizarrely supported by adults who should know better

especially in a kink aware community, even if not kinky.

if there is not a not to a date, then there is not a no to sex

and consent requires informed and if there is no

no to a date nor to sex, then there is no safeword

which, to religion, atheist is

and to keep oneself who is at rape risk, no to a date is supposed to be safe to say

otherwise, no women has rights to self determination

personal views vs traditional views

atheism is a rejection of religion, which is unreasonable and baseless with zero evidence

so it is reasonable, and religious people feeling rejected are not

and it is religion that causes oppression and genocide.

religion is the problem that causes oppression, bigotry and leads to genoicide

government budgets are connected to the census. so not being counted is oppression and continued exclusion and marginalization

Tom The Bug The New Gay Stereotype

Alex Blue 

I don’t know why this is even gets attention when there are more serious issues at hand?

For examples:

Why is Valdamere Putin allowed to live and rule Russia when he’s another Adolf Hitler?

Why are Russians racist, homophobic, misogynistic hateful bigots?

WTF is wrong with devout extremist religious people and their hate for science and reason, their hate for universal human rights and lastly why are they such bigoted blind sheep?

Why are there’s an anti LGBTQ rallies in B.C. Canada and Poland?

Why there’s a rise of racism and racial decisions?

Why religious people neglecting to protect themselves from COVID-19?

Finally: Why, why is Trump so fucking stupid?

because christian and muslim are the same religion, part of judaism and the Abrahamic trilogy would rather destroy the planet than allow others to pursue happyiness.

this I posted as a normal news as a break from Putin having a north pole base and the geo political instability. and Canada has no federal government and is facing a throne speech and confidence vote in the fall while there is a pandemic.

blue collar jobs do not pay as well as brains at workstations jobs and religion undermined education. so while Canadians are over educated and underemployed, Americans are unqualified to get back the jobs they outsourced in the 1970s

religion gives people that feel good about poverty and the scapegoat gives them someone to blame for the problems they are the cause of.

preachers preach poverty is noble and they live in mansion complexes with private planes and own networks…. so when they help themselves to children, teenagers and vulnerable adults… this is why the personal is the political because it just represents. predators who prey…

putting the fun back in fundamentalist the fear that somewhere someone is having fun.

okay – if you did not do a thing and someone said they had video (never mind that we pretty much have the tech to create such a video)

the inability to prove a negative problem, but also a confession

the more powerful in public the more submissive in private

If you are truly incapable of distinguishing between an act of love and an act of hatred, then you need to sit down for a very long, very careful re-evaluation of your life.

If on the other hand you’re intentionally not distinguishing between an act of love and an act of hatred, then you need to sit down for a very long, very careful re-evaluation of your soul.

given that the religious relationship between the deity and the follower could be on the domestic abuse relationship checklist… they really are unable to distinguish.

And yet somehow the UPS driver still always delivers my packages to my neighbors’ houses. 🙄

yeah and at the point people have rolling ovens delivering pizza, maybe they should just have gotten one at the store and cooked it at home.

we have this and yet most people on the planet are sure their invisible friend or friends lets them control other people’s rights and genitals. religion is mental illness, devoid of evidence and facts, and is not even internally consistent. i think of the “bible” a collection of dead sea scrolls as the early internet – poetry, propaganda and porn.

it never made sense to me that a being capable of creating the universe, would fixate on one planet, on one species and about gentialia.

the bronze age scrolls had a very limited understanding of the universe and why the deities were invented, placeholders. put aside in the dustbin of history, owing to religious conflict often ending one or both sides. If not other disaster – disease, drought or geological or climate event.
