Vendetta Thinks You're Stupid

Iran's sex change operations

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/newsnight/4115535.stm

I found this interesting article on bbc.com.

"In a country that has outlawed homosexuality, Frances Harrison meets one Iranian cleric who says the right to a sex change is a human right."

"That has meant that clerics like Hojatulislam Kariminia can study transsexuality - unlike homosexuality which is completely forbidden in Islam and illegal in Iran.
"I want to suggest that the right of transsexuals to change their gender is a human right," says the cleric, who is so fascinated by the subject that he says he dreams about the transsexuals he has studied at night."

(no subject)

Hey postqueer people! I'm not sure if anyone is interested here, but I've got a new zine out, Aubergine #2. The writing isn't anything new to those of you here, but the description I've posted on some of the zine communities here is this:

It's 1/2-size and 16 pages. Opens with a piece on my theory of coming out as a Capitalist construct, moves through my continuing struggles with coming-out to my family, a rant on the medical establishments treatment of queer and trans individuals' lives, and much more + book reviews.

It's $2 (*well concealed cash*) to Claire, POB, 751911, Houston, TX 77275-1911


I hope it's okay to post about it here. I just thought some of you might be interested. Thanks! :)
