For seven years, he’d been an exemplary soldier, rising to the rank of first lieutenant, and now on his way to captain. But there was a problem. Within the confines of his military training center, in western Kentucky, Eleazer still went by his birth name, which was female. Outside his Army base, Eleazer lived as a man, one of 15,450 military personnel who consider themselves transgender, according to a recently released study, but don’t dare come out to their fellow soldiers and risk jeopardizing their careers."

So he goes to the East Village, and he meets another dancer, and they become a couple, and they wanna audition for a movie. But the one who's a girl most of the time doesn't want to be a girl the whole time. So this brings up my idea for switchable clothing. I wanna sell the clothes after the show!"

RoadGoogle continues to block the word 'bisexual' from its auto-complete feature: “If you type in gay, lesbian or transgender into a Google search box, Google Instant Search begins to auto-complete the search while making relevant suggestions. However when you begin to type in bisexual, there are no suggestions provided which lead many to believe there are no search results. Since 2010, Google has blocked the word bisexual from its auto-complete and Instant Search features so users have to go an extra step to see the millions of results related to bi people, bisexuality, bi community, bisexual resources and bi organizations.”

  2. Gotta love NYP's typical union bashing: "...and got a lift up the tower from a clueless union elevator operator, even though he had no ID."

  3. Re: the Trans soldier story...on that link, this soldier's response said it best:

    "Listen up, this story has military poser plastered all over it as written, as anyone who has served Army knows already. In any case, from a combat (not fob-bat) leaders perspective, making a cohesive fighting unit out of a bunch of softened unruly twitter kids these days is challenging enough without throwing in a person who has issues with whats between their legs and trying to decide what their gender will be on any given day. Leave that nonsense at the door. The unfortunate truth our progressive pals will never comprehend is that the military is there to do ugly harsh, but absolutely neccesary acts of violence, and is not their personal trophy case to “diversify”. It is not your social experiment or platform to prove some point with wreckless disregard for the health of the bigger picture. The Army works one way, YOU take direction from it, not the other way around."

  4. That Spanish MP is beautiful, and progressive, to boot. If he does a good job, why should anyone care that he shows his ass in a gay movie?

  5. ". . . one of 15,450 military personnel who consider themselves transgender, according to a recently released study"

    There's no "study" showing this. That is simply someone taking the number of active duty members and multiplying it by 1%, which some trans activists laughably claim is the % of transgenders in society. Of course, even if transgenders were 1% of the general population, that would not mean that 1% are serving in the military, especially since they are screened out.

    In any event, the number is meaningless because transgender" itself is a meaningless term. It can be used narrowly to mean transsexuals or it can be used so broadly as to encompass everyone who deviates from any gender norm in any way. So the estimates of "transgenders" could range from .01% to 90%, depending upon the definition you use. It is all a trans activist fraud, dressed up to look like science.

  6. Google blocks a lot of things from auto-complete. I recommend avoiding it, and going directly to the results.

    However, for a website that repeatedly uses the rainbow flag, it's strange that they just don't seem to get it. The theme of the flag is diversity, reflecting the variety in our community, and bisexual people are certainly a part of that.

    Google needs to be hammered on this, as strongly as if they were doing it for the word "gay".

  7. I thought that there was a chance that Google algorithm thing was just a case of lazy programming where any word with the consecutive letters "s-e-x" in it hides the preview results, regardless of how benign.

    For example, "gay" is fine, but "homosexual" isn't. Same goes for "transgender" vs. "transsexual." I discovered a few other words which would back up this theory, such as "Essex," which also requires you to press enter to get results.

    But there are many weird exceptions to that rule. For example "sexism" auto-previews the results but "sexist" doesn't? What?!

    Obvious benign words like "sextet," "sextuplet," etc. don't hide results, and there are slightly less benign words like "intersex," "pansexual" and "omnisexual" which also don't hide the auto-previews.

    It's a head-scratcher, to say the least. It's hard to tell if they're specifically censoring the word "bisexual," or if they just failed to include it in a list of exceptions to the "words that include 's-e-x'" rule.

  8. Never even heard of Gallagher and his passive-aggressive homophobia is wretch.

  9. That new design for the refurbished LaGuardia air terminal looks like the work of Zaha Hadid which is why it is such a stunner. She rocks.

  10. Seriously, is it that difficult to type a whole freaking word? I do it without even blinking. Auto-complete is probably the most annoying feature that's been added to Google in the last five years.

  11. I just typed bis into Google and it autocompleted with bisexuality. Is it just restricted in certain areas??

  12. Are you still using Google, that records all your searches? Yahoo auto-fills bisexual and offers a bunch of suggestions.

  13. $233,000 just thrown away. Maybe every charity should have a hot guy who can't sing do a video.
