NCLR and where your Lesbian dollars are going

Miss Kendell has been asked repeatedly on HER own FB "note" for a break down of where the money is going and to whom for the NClR. Obviously I have no access to those numbers nor is the NClR going to show us any TRANSparency, I can however show you where some of the money isnt going and it isnt LESBIAN issues.
How does allowing biological males to compete against biological females in sports benefit lesbians or females period? Am I missing something???

Special privileges for "trans travelers", your lesbian dollars at work.

Money going towards a male transitioner in PRISON no less! Maybe while they are at it they could put some money in Manson's prison account.





A malecentric self hating female, promoting the self hatred of other lesbians, not something I want MY time or money or NAME going to!

A male transitioner wanting to be treated like a real woman, gets treated like real woman, then complains! Malecentric and male privilege to boot, sickening that lesbian dollars went to fight and lose cases like this. Change society, NOT your body!



I see "transgender" listed as a specific, yet on an org that calls itself a national center for LEBIAN rights, while lesbians may have issues in the other areas listed here, issues specific TO lesbians are not addressed, YET trans is.

This obviously is just a tiny smattering of what this org is about and not about, but lesbians rights, lesbian issues are not the focal point for this organization. Out of cases pending not having to do with "gay marriage" two cases pending are lesbian specific, SEVEN cases are non lesbian specific. You dont have to take my word for it, do your homework, go to their website and you will be as disgusted as I am.

Lesbians as a minority group make FAR less money than any minority, especially lesbian who are non white. We work hard for our money, it often doesnt come easy to us, especially if we live openly as lesbians. The NClR does not value your lesbian dollars, if it did, the name would reflect their practices. Save your money for a more worthy place, lesbians deserve better for a fucking change.

  2. National Center for Transgender Rights would be more appropriate. But oh oups the National Center for Transgender Equality http://transequality.org/ already exists.

    By the way, it could be fun Dirt if you can compare the 2 websites: the one of the NCLR and the one of the NCTE! I am just wondering if the NCTE has activities or materials for lesbians...based a pro bono policy with the NCLR ?

    The crew alone is an all male staff with the exception of one self hating lesbian. None of their focus is lesbian, it is pure trans with a significant male transitioner favoured stance.

  4. Dirt. I love what you're doing, but I have to disagree with you on the staff thing. It doesn't look like you read their staff and governing board web page. Of 65 staff, board and council members, 12 are male. You diminish your great reputation and what we're trying to accomplish by saying things aren't true, and that people can easily find for themselves.

    You've lost me anon. Nowhere in this post did mention the staff of the NClR with the exception of mentioning Kendell.

    If you are referring to my comment regarding the staff of the NCTE, I stand by that comment.

  6. I don't know the details of the case, but how is Jespersen v. Harrahs a trans case? It looks like a sex discrimination case involving gender stereotypes and a violation of a butch woman's rights.

    The TLC, no doubt, had its own reasons for intervening, but how do these invalidate the NCLR's?

    I just wish they had won, and this sex discrimination wasn't backed by legal precedent.

  7. Even though I am transgender, I agree with this post and some of your other views. I respect them. Lesbians and women--cisgender or otherwise--deserve equality just like everyone else. An organization created in the name of lesbian rights should be entcenter for lesbian rights, otherwise it would be a queer or LGBT rights. That's not fair.

  8. So the National Center for Lesbian rights has more males and FTM staff and do more gay males and straight FTM oriented activities than the National Center for Transgender Rights?
    Excellent!

  9. The Darlene Jespersen case was about a female bartender working at Harrah's who had worked there for over 20 years with an excellent work record. Then Harrah's management decided all women working there had to wear heavy makeup. Darlene Jespersen felt she looked fine without heavy makeup, so Harrah's fired her. Darlene took them to court and lost, because the courts felt the employers should be able to have rules regarding employee appearance. (Even ridiculous and discriminatory rules, I guess.)

    I'm not sure why the Transgender organization got involved with this case.

    I think the Jespersen case was worthwhile and relevant to women's and lesbian rights. The other examples, however, do not fall in the same category of clearly pertaining to lesbian rights.

  10. "I'm not sure why the Transgender organization got involved with this case."

    Because they think that not wanting to wear makeup makes a woman transgender. (It's an umbrella term, didncha know? Better bust out the lipstick, or get ready for some questions about when you're going to go on T.)

  11. Here's the blurb from the Advocate.com website itself...of course the Advocate is primarily a gay men's magazine.

    Oprah Buys Chaz Bono Doc
    By Advocate.com Editors

    Before the movie debuts at the Sundance Film Festival later this month, Oprah Winfrey’s cable upstart OWN has snapped up the rights to Becoming Chaz, a documentary that follows Chaz Bono’s gender reassignment journey.

    Deadline reports that OWN is planning a major party at the festival and will announce the acquisition there.

    The film is directed by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, the duo behind The Eyes of Tammy Faye, Inside Deep Throat, and Party Monster.

  12. NCLR is supporting this 'transgender' athlete who has no intention at this point of transitioning to male, but is ashamed/refuses to identify with Butch Lesbians.
