    MESQUITE (CBSDFW.COM) – A Forney woman says a Ross department store in Mesquite let a man into the women’s dressing room Monday. “I was in the dressing room, when we heard a man’s voice,” said Lisa Stickles, who says she quickly told a manager. “She went inside the dressing room, came right back out and called me to the side and told me… he was representing himself as a woman today,” Stickles said. A customer service representative with Ross would not comment on the alleged incident but said they do not discriminate against the transgender community; adding, customers may use...

    Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is calling for the resignation of Dr. Kent Paredes Scribner, Superintendent of the Fort Worth Independent School District. Patrick says Scribner placed his own personal agenda ahead of students by adopting transgender student guidelines. In a statement released on Monday afternoon, Patrick said: “After less than a year as superintendent, Dr. Scribner has lost his focus and thereby his ability to lead the Fort Worth ISD. He has placed his own personal political agenda ahead of the more than 86,000 students attending 146 schools in the district by unilaterally adopting ‘Transgender Student Guidelines.’ Without any...

     This is what the millennials might call “beyond beyond.”This is beyond President Obama’s typical Chicago-style politics.  This is beyond the more vile tenets of the Alinsky catechism.  Hell, this is beyond the bozo Soviet nonsense that John Paul II had to put up with.No, what we have here is special.  We haven’t seen such a raw, naked attempt by a secular head of state to manipulate a pope in centuries.  This here is Borgia crap, and not just any Borgia crap.  This is top-shelf, vintage Borgia crap at it’s finest.You see, President Obama has hatched a plan.

    As with the “would you attend a gay wedding? question, I can’t tell how much I should be surprised by Republican pols’ answers to LGBT-themed questions anymore. Policy responses are easy: If you’re running for president, you oppose legalizing gay marriage and strongly, strongly support exceptions to antidiscrimination laws for business owners who refuse to cater gay weddings on religious grounds. Beyond that, once you stray from policy to personal relations with gay/transgender people, things get more complicated and unpredictable. (Which, actually, is why gay-rights activists encourage people to come out. Polls show that people who know someone who’s...

    The new policy, to be implemented by the end of May, states that cosmetic makeup can be worn on any person “regardless of gender,” and that a person isn’t misrepresenting his or her identity when makeup or clothing don’t match traditional gender expectations. DMV employees will also be trained in how to serve transgender and gender non-conforming individuals. The lawsuit, settled in the U.S. District Court in Columbia, S.C., was the first of its kind to challenge these sorts of restrictions on license photos, according to Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund executive director Michael Silverman. Lawyers for the organization...

    MILWAUKEE – Deidri Hernandez’s seven-year-old son won’t be in school tomorrow, after officials at Tippecanoe School for the Arts and Humanities confirmed they’re still holding “Switch It Up Day” – a time for students to come dressed as members of the opposite sex. Hernandez tells EAGnews the day was originally billed as “Gender Bender Day,” but Tippecanoe officials made the name change after she called Principal Jeffrey Krupar to complain. The Milwaukee mother was not impressed. “I didn’t have a problem with the title. I had a problem with the activity taking place,” Hernandez says. She says it’s “ridiculous” and...

    Ever since Bill and Hillary Clinton stepped onto the national stage, I have been struck by their lust for power. When Bill became embroiled in his first sex scandal during the race for the White House in 1992, one would have thought his presidential career was over before it had begun. Then, the country witnessed his wife on national television saying that people were telling lies about her husband. "I'm not some woman standing by my man like Tammy Wynette," she said, trying to save the philanderer whom she viewed as her key to political prominence. If she had told...

Camacho, who authorities say also was sleeping with a 14-year-old girl at the time, also said he wouldn't leave his wife and 2-year-old son.

Transgender advocates Kim Pearson and Autumn Sandeen will appear on KRXQ's "Rob, Arnie & Dawn" show Thursday morning to "further educate the hosts," according to a press release from the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). The trio's morning show is off the air because of their remarks but will return at 7:30 a.m. Thursday.

    The trial of 18 men accused of dressing up as women has started in a Sharia court in northern Nigeria. The men were arrested last year in a hotel room in the city of Bauchi. Prosecutors read out a letter from New York based Human Rights Watch calling for the court to respect the men's right to "free association". The men were originally accused of sodomy, which could lead to the death penalty under Sharia, but the charges were reduced. Prosecutor Yusuf Adamu said HRW was "grossly misinformed" about the case and invited a representative of the organisation to attend...

    Title of Choice Urged for Transsexuals August 12, 2007 - 8:17pm BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) - Mr., Mrs. or Ms.? Thailand may soon let people who have had a sex change officially alter their title, too. A proposal which would allow transgender men or women to choose how they are addressed is being considered by the country's National Legislative Assembly to support an anti-discrimination provision in the draft constitution, Thai newspapers reported. Wiroon Tangcharoen, an assembly member who is also rector of Srinakharinwirot University, said he supported the move and did not believe it would affect room assignments in university...

    Afghan soldiers have captured a Taliban leader who tried to flee a security operation in the south dressed in a burqa, NATO said on Wednesday. Tuesday's capture in Kandahar province came as NATO launched a major offensive in neighbouring Helmand to secure a key hydroelectric dam and combat the opium trade. The man was named as Mullah Mahmood and described as an expert bomb-maker. U.S.-led coalition forces also detained five more suspected militants in eastern Khost this week. Fighting is expected to be heavy in 2007 after the bloodiest year since the Taliban's ouster in 2001. The Taliban warn they...

If you happen to be passing through Grand Central Station and nature calls, you just might want to hold it until you get home, because, this week, officials with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority decided that transgendered people have the right to use the bathroom – men's or women's – of their choice on New York's subway system.

    After years of stifling conservatism, men face a dizzying array of clothing options ranging from cutting-edge sportswear to unisex collections that blur the distinctions between the genders. French designer Jean Paul Gaultier is largely to thank for these advances. He was the first to show men in skirts and continues to promote an androgynous approach to dressing with his Gaultier To The Power of Two collection, inspired by the perfume of the same name. Male and female models swaggered out in platform heels in his spring-summer 2007 show Saturday, which drew inspiration from 1970s glam rockers such as David Bowie....

    Becoming U.S. Senate minority leader has hurt Sen. Harry Reid's popularity back home, according to a Review-Journal poll. Since he was re-elected in 2004 and took the party post, the percentage of Nevadans who view Reid favorably has dropped by 10 percentage points, while the number who view him unfavorably has increased 14 percentage points. Analysts say it's obvious Reid's new status, which requires him to spout the Democratic party line aggressively and also take the brunt of Republican attacks, has turned off home state voters who saw him as independent. Some are surprised at the magnitude of the shift....

However, because our primary target client is female and because of the sensitive nature of our product, there are specific guidelines for males in the dressing room areas.

    March 31, 2005 -- A Queens landlord didn't cross-dress the line by ordering that men who dress as women not use the ladies' room, an appeals court ruled. The state Appellate Division made the finding in a ruling made public yesterday, where it dismissed a sex and gender discrimination suit filed by an AIDS awareness group against its Jackson Heights landlord. The Hispanic AIDS Forum said it was discriminated against after the landlord of its 37th Avenue offices backed out of a deal extending their lease "due to various complaints regarding the use of the bathrooms by its transgender clientele,"...

    In an incident the YMCA is calling "a very regrettable scheduling error," kids arriving for an early-morning swim meet Sunday walked into a gender-bending scene of the kind most of them wouldn't be allowed to watch on TV. Several of the kids' angry parents clashed with participants in a transgender fashion show, which had been under way at the New City YMCA since about midnight, resulting in a chaotic melee that was eventually broken up by private security guards and East Chicago District police. A YMCA member had reserved the entire facility, at 1515 N. Halsted, from 11 p.m. Saturday...
