SORT BY Relevancy
Yesterday's comments on the Michelle Kosilek case covered the basics. Today, the guest is Jennifer Levi, director of the Transgender Rights Project of Gay & esbian Advopcaes & Defenders. She was incredulous about the majority decision denying reassignment surgery.
We'll cover the implications not only for Kosilek but also for current or future incarcerated transgender inmates in Massachusetts. Levi may also give us some perspective on the next action, as in whether the case might move to the Supreme Court.
Are "strange," "Immoral," and "unfamiliar" feelings enough to block medical care for a prison inmate? Well, yes, in Massachusetts, to a five-judge federal court of appeals panel. They ruled en banc by 3 to 2 to overturn first a trial judgment and then a 3-judge panel of appeals justices that mandates sexual reassignment surgery for an inmate serving a life term.
Michelle Kosilek had fought for her surgery for a decade, winning before Judge Mark Wolf and then the panel. The Commonwealth persisted and finally had its way on Tuesday.
This becomes a de facto prohibition on such surgery here. Kosilek has long had hormone and other treatments, all short of the surgery. She won on Eighth Amendment grounds — cruel and unusual punishment for denial of necessary medical treatment. The Commonwealth edged out its win on what a dissenting judge called lies, ignoring the facts, rejecting case law, and making up law on the fly.
I'll talk the implications and how sadly the federal court here looks like the reactionary majority of the SCO)TUS.
Today we have a few items of interest concerning a few pastors who have recently called for the death of homosexuals. We'll share with you the stories and then discuss the issue biblically AND talk about the ministry of reconciliation, which is the ministry Jesus brought, versus the way some like to alienate others.

Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is an annual observance on November 20 that honors the memory of those whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence. TDOR was started by transgender advocate Gwendolyn Ann Smith as a vigil to honor the memory of Rita Hester, a transgender woman who was killed in 1998. The vigil commemorated all the transgender people lost to violence that year and began an important memorial that has become the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance. This year over 200 names will be read at TDOR services across the country. Joining CAN WE TALK FRO REAL co-hosts Ina, Michelle and Terry Boi will be Transgender activists Monica Roberts (The Trans Grio) and Michelle Fox-Phillips (Gender Identity Network Alliance).They will talk about commemorative ceremonies and the continued fight for a fully inclusive ENDA (Employment Non Discrimination Act) nationally and the fight at the state level in Michigan for its transgender community.
So join us Wednesday night, November 19, 2014 as we honor our Transgender Community on CAN WE TALK FOR REAL.
Show starts at 10:30est/9:30cst. Call 347-215-8985 and Press 1 to speak.

n slang, "old school" or "old skool" can refer to anything that is from an earlier era or anything that may be considered "old-fashioned". The term is commonly used to suggest a high regard for something that has been shown to have lasting value or quality.
That was the it was , we don't do that way any more. Question is what are your outcome compared, to the Old School way?
Are you happier? Is there any joy in that life? Are given more than you recieving? Are you disapointed in your out comes? Why?
With African American males making up more than 50% of the prison population, our schools are headed by white teachers, particularly female. As a young African American male growing up without a positive black male figure at home or in school, they turn to television, rap music and gangs to find their "identity". Once in the gang, they end up in jail or dead. Somewhere in between they have a child and the cycle repeats. In this episode we tackle this issue on education in American and try to offer practical strategies to navigating this.
