Campus preacher Brother Dean Saxton; Douchebag of the month

This is dangerous territory that is now moving from not just lgbt folks but women who have confidence.

We need to get Academics and administrations to respond on this growing trend of intolerance

I found it posted on

Campus preacher Brother Dean Saxton displayed the above sign at the University of Arizona, telling the student newspaper, “If you dress like a whore, act like a whore, you’re probably going to get raped. I think that girls that dress and act like it, they should realize that they do have partial responsibility, because I believe that they’re pretty much asking for it.” Think Progress notes that Saxton responded to a campus protest about sexual violence on his Twitter account.”

Breaking: DA Agrees to New Condoms Policy
Bay Area Reporter (San Francisco) (04.11.13):: Seth Hemmelgarn

George Gascón, San Francisco’s district attorney (DA), has agreed to a permanent ban on the use of condoms as evidence of prostitution. He notified Theresa Sparks, executive director of the city’s Human Rights Commission, of this decision in a letter dated March 30, which stated that prosecutors will no longer use condoms as physical evidence in criminal prostitution cases. Jeff Adachi, public defender, agreed that it is a good policy that police and prosecutors will no longer treat carrying condoms as evidence of prostitution. This letter ended a temporary ban on collecting or photographing condoms in cases of suspected prostitution or of discussing them in court, which was in effect since October and had been extended for another three months in January while Gascón examined the issue.

Labels no more…

As someone who has struggled with labels, both those I’ve put on myself and those that academic, national and cultural groups attempt to put on me either for funding, bio medical or simply because of an innate urge to quantify widgets.. this was a powerful reminder to those in power, research and policy that labels don’t tell you who we are – they just tell you how we are counted.

Health Equality: Our New Opportunity

Last week was LGBT Health Awareness Week, the one week set aside each year to stress the importance of LGBT health. Coincidentally, most of our community was awash in a sea of red and pink equal signs on Facebook to show their solidarity for marriage equality. Given the historic nature of the arguments, this was all well, good, and necessary, but raises the question for all of us: Where do we stand when it comes to our health equality?
