Gender Free Bathrooms in Starbucks

From on October 1st, 2010:

"Starting Monday, local Starbucks locations will begin swapping out the "Men's" and "Women's" bathroom signs on each of the coffee chain's restroom facilities inside the District of Columbia. Within a month, all 52 of D.C.'s Starbucks single-stall bathrooms will be gender-neutral.

The switch comes after campaigning efforts by local LGBT groups the DC Trans Coalition and the DC Center, who are pushing all local businesses to comply with a little-known regulation in D.C. law ensuring that all public restrooms are equally accessible to transgender and gender-nonconforming people."

Discrimination? Certainly Not!

Two Teens and Man Beaten and Sodomized

9 men from the ages of 16 through 26 kidnapped 2 teens and took them to an empty apartment in the Bronx. The teens were beaten and sodomized until one of them admitted to having sex with a 30 year old man. The men then told the 30 year old to bring liquor to what they told him was a house party.

From the NYTimes (

"The attackers forced the man to strip to his underwear and tied him to a chair, the police said. One of the teenage victims was still there, and the “Goonies” ordered him to attack the man. The teenager hit him in the face and burned him with a cigarette on his nipple and penis as the others jeered and shouted gay slurs, the police said. Then the attackers whipped the man with a chain and sodomized him with a small baseball bat.

The beatings and robberies went on for hours. They were followed by a remarkably thorough attempt to sanitize the house — including pouring bleach down drains, the police said, as little by little word of the attacks trickled to the police. A crucial clue to the attackers was provided by someone who slipped a note to a police officer outside the crime scene, at 1910 Osborne Place in Morris Heights, near Bronx Community College."

"It Gets Better": Reaching out to Stop Teen Suicide

“Go To A Country Where They Hang People Like You”

In La Crosse, Wisconsin, where they host an annual festival, the parade commodore shoved a 14-year-old girl who was carrying two rainbow flags just before a parade on Saturday.

According to the La Crosse Tribune:

"Commodore Mark Schneider, who was on a float nearby, approached the girl and put his hands on the flagpole, [the LGBT center's Executive Director Rosanne] St. Sauver said. St. Sauver walked over, placed her hands on the pole and told him, “Please stop, she’s a 14-year-old child.”

“He said, ‘I do not care. Look what you are teaching them,’” St. Sauver said.

That’s when, St. Sauver said, Schneider shoved the girl with his body.

St. Sauver said Schneider told the girl: “Go to a country where they will hang people like you.“

The incident left the teen crying, and others upset, St. Sauver said. This is the first year the center has participated in the parade."

Of course, Schneider denies it.
