Big queer love goes out to the New Democrats for bringing forward the transgender protection bill! And a big ole queer YAY!, it made it through the first hurdle. And now it's off to the Conservative Senate... so, I guess, as we parents love to say: "We'll see." (You'll find particularly heartwarming how critics of the bill worry that this bill will be used to protect pedophiles. Really? Really? We're still there?? Anyhoo.)
And big queer flip-da-birdy goes out to Dr. Phil. Dr. Phil advised a woman in the throes of hysteria that her son played with 'girl toys,' not to let him do it any longer. Yes indeedy. Quick to point out that playing with 'girl' toys did not mean her son was gay, Dr. Phil felt it best not to reward the behaviour in case it led to further 'confusion'. Yup. Yes. He did. Keeping those (ridiculous and unnecessary) gender restrictions firmly intact. All in a days work...
