THE HUMAN AGENDA: Conversations about Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity with author Joe Wenke
Despite the progress in the movement toward marriage equality, the LGBTQI community continues to face difficult, and often heartbreaking, odds. Gay and lesbian youth are four times more likely than their peers to attempt suicide. Nearly half of transgender teens have contemplated suicide and a quarter has made an attempt, according to The Trevor Project. Adoption equality and second-parent rights are still blocked in many states, and legislators in Oklahoma and Alabama have tried to introduce laws that make it legal to discriminate against gays and lesbians. Perhaps most disturbing of all, homicide rates for transgender women account for 45 percent of all hate murders, according to GLAAD.
Joe Wenke thinks there is a better way. By opening up discussions about our shared humanity and experiences, Wenke is getting people to talk with, not at, each other and leaving the rancor and divisiveness behind, beginning with his book THE HUMAN AGENDA: Conversations about Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity. For this collection of frank conversations about growing up, coming out, finding your identity, family, marriage, parenting, careers and so much more.

For this show, I plan to talk about what is trending on Facebook and Twitter. If time, I will take in call, (if any) to talk about anything that's on their minds. I will also be talking about what has been happening with me and tell you more about me and this station. I just became a Trekkie, so I might be throwing in a bit of Star Trek reference. Forgive me if I can't spell anything in here correctly, this section of inputing alpha-numaric sentances does not have auto-correct.
So here is what will happen in order....
1: I will talk about me and about the station.
2: I will talk about trending topics on Facebook and Twitter (at the current time).
3: I will take in calls if anyone is listening.
4: I will give a thought of the evening
I hope you will enjoy listening to Gender Chat on Blog Talk Radio, and I hope to hear your views and ideas. Details are on the station/channel/profile page.

What is the Ultimate Motive behind the Gender Identity Curriculum?
Are the Parents Rights soon to be stripped away from them?
Do the Children want this Curriculum as a part of their learning? Or is this a forced political exercise?
Who are the Sponsoring Committee pushing these agendas? What are their aims and goals?
Are Teachers across the Nation in agreeance or disagreement with the Gender Identity Curriculum?
So Many Questions needs to be asked, and more involvement is necessary for greater clarity on the purpose of such subjects that’s now being taught and introduced to our children as a form of Education.

How we define ourselves, mother, father, coach, pastor, businessman, teacher...these self-identifying monikers can play a huge role in what we persue. Our focus, our passion, our time, our resources, our very personality can be shaped almost entirely by how we perceive our identity. Do you believe that God has planted with you a divine identity? A purpose that is supernatural and eternal? And if you do, are you operating in that identity? Do you even know what it is
Transgender is becoming more understood in our culture. Or at least, it's more recognized. But that's the problem, it isn't understood. I spoke with Erica Burns, a transgender female and Robert Lee, a gender-neutral person. That was a new one for me.
Erica's story is one you've heard before: She always knew she was born into the wrong body. About 9 months ago, at 23, she took action ... and hormones.
Robert goes by "he" because he was born into a male body, and he is comfortable with it. But it doesn't stop there. He is not a hermaphrodite. He calls himself "gender fluid." He says he is in the middle, choosing neither male nore female.
This show is guaranteed to be interesting!
“Gender expression” refers to the ways in which we each manifest masculinity or femininity. Each of us expresses a particular gender every day – by the way we style our hair, select our clothing, or even the way we stand. Our appearance, speech, behavior, movement, and other factors signal that we feel – and wish to be understood – as masculine or feminine, or as a man or a woman.
For some of us, our gender expression may not match our biological sex. We may or may not fit another's expectations of masculinity or femininity because of the way we look, act, or dress. Our guest knows firsthand the struggle of not feeling her assigned sex. Author Tracy James Jones, though born male, has been referred to as “she” throughout her life. She never fully embraced the male gender as her own because she always felt or related more to being viewed as female. At the age of fifteen, she made a tearful confession to God on the altar at her church—she finally embraced her true self because she believed that God loved her, too.

On tonight's Taboo Thursday show we will be diverting from the usual topic and focus on gender roles. I have recently been seeing a lot of women proposing to their man and I am outraged. I believe if the woman wants to get married & has expressed this to their man & the man still doesn't ask her to be his wife, then he isn’t ready. Period. What kind of man who truly loves and adores his woman would even allow this shit to happen? At the end of the day it's about what a man will do for the love of his Queen and when you're truly in love with a woman, we all know yall men will do ANYTHING to make/keep her happy.
That being said, women stop tryna make shit work with men who simply are not shit.
This conversation sparked up quite the response from facebook so I want you all to call in tonight at 10 pm PST to talk about why or why not you agree with a woman proposing to a man.

With recent headlines of Bruce (Caitlyn) Jenner transitioning or processing to outwardly have the appearance of a woman and now Rachel Dolezal, President of the Spokane chapter NAACP is Facing Ethics Probe After Being Outed as White by her White biological Parents. Dolezal also maintained on Thursday that she still considers herself black. So the question is: Race, Color, Gender - Is it as easy as Black and White or are we in such a grey area anymore that anything goes?
