5 Things We Learned From the New Lou Reed Biography

●LOU REED
“To be involved with a transgender woman very openly in the 1970s was totally bold,” DeCurtis says. “At the same time, by all accounts, Rachel had a secret life of her own as a transgender hustler, which was how Lou met her at an after-hours bar. I don't think she ever gave up that life. To the degree she maintained her edgier life on the street, I think Lou found that compelling.”

Opinion | A transgender candidate isn’t the extremist in this Va. race. Her opponent is.

●USA
"Mr. Marshall, 73, wields a scholarly affect to distract voters from his long-standing legislative priorities, which include a laundry list of hard-right conservative causes that has prompted lawmakers of both parties in Richmond to refer to him as “Sideshow Bob.” A relentless culture warrior, Mr. Marshall was a bitter opponent of same-sex marriage; has championed a legislative push to enact a Virginia version of North Carolina’s notorious bathroom bill, restricting public restrooms based on birth gender rather than identity; and has been a crusader against abortion as well as birth control."

Zealotry is a matter of ideas, not identity.

Opinion | Pope Francis once again attacks transgender people

●WOULD THE POPE LISTEN
"On Thursday, Oct. 5, Pope Francis made his most transparent condemnation yet of the lifesaving medical procedures that allow transgender people to live authentic lives. Speaking to the Pontifical Academy for Life, he decried “the biological and psychical manipulation of sexual difference, which biomedical technology allows us to perceive as completely available to free choice” which he claimed seeks to “cancel out” differences between the sexes.
This is a widely articulated falsehood. The anti-LGBT web is full of such smear stories claiming transgender people really want to eliminate all differences between male and female. However, Pope Francis doesn’t write for an alt-right rag. He is a revered holy man whose word is respected by more than a billion people worldwide. When he gives voice to disparaging myths, those myths grow wings and overshadow the much smaller transgender community’s attempt to educate people about what we really need."

Claim of wanting to eliminate gender from society is false, drives fear
