Getting a concealed carry permit in. California is very difficult. I wonder if she has one. She certainly shouldn’t going forward. And her guns should be confiscated while all of this gets investigated.

Edit-

“ California also generally prohibits carrying or possession of a firearm in the following locations:

  • In the State Capitol, any legislative office, any office of the Governor or other constitutional officer, or any hearing room in which any committee of the Senate or Assembly is conducting a hearing, or upon the grounds of the State Capitol, which is bounded by 10th, L, 15th, and N Streets in the City of Sacramento, if the firearm is loaded, or the area is posted with a statement providing reasonable notice that prosecution may result from possession of a firearm.14

Several laws seem to have been broken and ignored.

How can i put this? The BBC has trans…. issues? No. Trans… problems? Nah.

Stop mincing words, jane. The BBC is a dumpster fire of unreconstructed bigotry and misinformation when it comes to trans folks. More of that in a minute.

That’s why, at the end of this piece, i will be asking you, dear reader, to join me and Trans Media Watch in a new project: #BBCWatch. It will be a bit like SpringWatch, which looks out for signs of spring; CrimeWatch, which keeps an eye on criminals; and Watchdog, which does much the same for Crufts (Editor’s note: no, it doesn’t!)

For details, skip to the end now.

Or stay with this for a little bit of history.

Last month, GLAAD wrote an open letter to The New York Times protesting the paper’s coverage of trans issues. In particular, the group took issue with the way the paper has covered medical sex changes or “gender affirmation” for minors. Contrary to clinicians and experts quoted in the Times, GLAAD asserted the science behind this practice is “SETTLED.” The letter was co-signed by a wide array of human rights groups as well as celebrities like Lena Dunham and Judd Apatow.

It doesn’t get any better from there.

The first time I announced my pronouns, “I’m David, he/him,” I was a freshman in college attending a transgender discussion group. It was 2005. At the time it seemed quite progressive—even for me, an openly gay 18-year-old volunteering at my liberal college’s resource center for gay rights. In the most progressive clique at one of the country’s most progressive schools, being transgender was still mostly a theoretical concept—a new frontier that college kids were just beginning to discover.

emphasis mine

Trans people were a “theoretical concept” in 2005 :thinking: , I guess I didn’t know I was trans and learn everything involved in transitioning in the late 90’s then.

also a great response to the article,

Also… this line…

Only connect. Dispossess yourself even of the oppression you treasure as your particular possession, and walk naked into the solidarity of the dispossessed. Without a utopia in mind, a commons of the persecuted where all losses can be salved, there is no point to being gay.

Especially…

walk naked into the solidarity of the dispossessed

As if this idiot ever did anything substantive for LGBT rights.

Did Jesse share or was planning to share some of that privileged information? And is now worried about consequences? Sue him.

Also - I can’t believe you didn’t ask the Times attorney’s about this. I guess you didn’t like the answer?

Jesse Singal has what he believes is strong evidence that the “whistleblower” whose story he desperately wishes were true because it would prove a culture war talking point is on the level. It…is not:

Considering the hoops that the healthcare industry goes through in order to comply with HIPAA - and patients, too! - this fucker better go to prison for a LONG time.

And my understanding of the law is, Singal is culpable, too. If you receive information that is in violation of HIPAA, you are supposed to treat it like Top Secret documents; don’t look at it and report it right away.

Receiving stolen goods is a crime.

I guess reselling them for a profit in his stories makes him a fence.

This assholes hubris in his desire to harm trans people may have just gone Greek tragedy on him.

IIRC, HIPAA does not allow a carve out for journalists. It doesn’t matter if you are the Editor in Chief of the New York Times or the fucking Pope: publishing patient confidential information is a violation. Period.

Former Radiology Library film clerk here…that’s true. I’ve blocked private practitioners from accessing records without the proper release forms signed by the patient. :man_shrugging:
