    I want to know why they didn’t charge his mother with driving him across state lines with an illegal weapon. This is one fucked up man-baby.

    So sad to hear Dean Stockwell has passed. I remember him vividly as the little boy in Secret Garden.

    Sad also to hear Max Cleland has passed:

    India’s Third Sex

    In the Indian subcontinent, the term Hijra is used to refer to eunuchs, intersex people, asexual or transgender people. Hijras have been a recognized part of Indian culture since ancient times and are also known as Aravani, Aruvani, or Jogappa. In their community, they prefer to call themselves Kinnar or Kinner – like the mythological beings who are extremely talented at dancing and singing.

    India’s Supreme Court recognized transgender individuals as a third sex in April 2014. Hijras are often asked to come to special events like weddings and childbirths for blessings. It is believed by many Indians that the Hijras bring good fortune and that they keep evil spirits away.

      It’s people born male who have the latitude to become 3rd sex, low status though it may be. If there are female-born hijra, they’re very few and far between. Funny how that works. Almost as if patriarchies aren’t threatened by men escaping into other gender roles. Only by women escaping.
