Coming soon to a women's bathroom in Arkansas

If the Arkansas legislature passes a proposal to require that people use public restrooms that match their birth gender (in the supposed name of keeping men out of the ladies' rooms), some shocks might be in store, as I've mentioned before.

Getting some circulation on social media this week is an Internet page with photographs of  10 men (handsome and buff) who were born as women. Should they venture into Arkansas, such a law would require each of them to relieve themselves in the ladies room if they used public facilities. Imagine the 10 lining up for the facilities at a Razorback game at War Memorial Stadium.

Those featured include Loren Cameron,  shown above. He's a photographer, author and transsexual activist. As it happens, an Internet biography says he (then a she) spent much of his youth in rural Arkansas. He writes here about his life.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
