      I agree with you 100% about catcalls being a big problem and very offensive to women , so I was surprised when I came across what this woman posted.

    this thread is for recommending someone else‘s writings/events.

    Listening to Rand Paul’s speeches is an excellent way to hear someone else’s writing, but (un)fortunately I haven’t been reading his blog, so here’s some more foodie stuff:

    Bogota Eats and Drinks is a lovely blog run by a woman called Diana who coincidentally looks quite a bit like my wife but with longer darker hair.

    New Trans-Affirming Model Hospital Policies issued:

    They just went up on the Lambda Legal website: http://tinyurl.com/k5y3mkt .

    The pdf is at http://tinyurl.com/kkjck9w .

    They are the result of a joint effort among Lambda Legal, the Human Rights Campaign, and the Gender Identity and Expression Subcommittee of the LGBT Rights Committee of the New York City Bar Association (with pro bono assistance from a large New York City law firm).

    I have been personally involved in this project myself, since 2011, as a member of the LGBT Rights Committee/Gender Identity & Expression Subcommittee of the City Bar.

    This is a heartbreaking and beautifully-written response by Simone Kay to the Miley Cyrus performance and how it relates to the racism Kay has experienced in her intimate relationships http://www.blackgirldangerous.org/2013/11/01/miley-ass-love/

    A new website: http://wifey.tv by Jill Soloway and Rebecca Odes is now on-line. All about content for women. Humorous, political, poignant, controversial – it’s all there.
