While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

Witness in murder of John Crawford changes story

You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.

Reblogging this again, because it’s the exact same reason why my blog is covering all of the different murders of African-Americans, whether by police or other perpetrators. 

John Crawford’s story will be fully shared later this weekend.

STUDY: Blocking Puberty Is Beneficial for Transgender Youth

lgbtqblogs:

According to a new study, transgender youth undergoing treatment to delay puberty show improved psychological well-being over time, reports HealthDay.

The Dutch study, which was published online in the journal Pediatrics, involved 22 trans girls and 33 trans boys who had been diagnosed with “gender dysphoria.” Starting, on average, at age 14, each participant underwent hormone treatment to temporarily halt the onset of puberty.

Participants were assessed until up to one year after their first gender confirming surgery — which, on average, occurred at age 21.

Given the “opportunity to develop into well-functioning young adults” without developing unwanted sex characteristics, including those related to voice, hair growth, and body shape, the study found that, overall, participants seemed satisfied with their gender-related decisions. None expressed regret about delaying puberty or deciding to transition.

Once the participants reached adulthood, anxiety, emotional distress, and body image concerns, as well as happiness, were present at the same level as their non-transgender peers, notes GLAAD.

Because the effects of puberty suppressors — also known, informally, as “hormone blockers” — are fully reversible, the study’s lead author, Dr. Annelou de Vries, points out that they “provid[e] adolescents and their families with time to explore their gender dysphoric feelings, and [to] make a more definite decision regarding the first steps of actual gender reassignment at a later age.”

While de Vries adds that the study’s findings should be corroborated with further research, Dr. Jack Drescher, a clinical professor of psychiatry at New York Medical College, told HealthDay that the findings of this “thoughtful and careful” study appear to “confirm the idea that puberty suppression is a generally good idea” for youth with gender dysphoria.

The treatment, which has ben used for about 15 years, seems “relatively safe and benign,” Drescher continued. He noted that not all teens who suppress puberty will eventually pursue gender reassignment, but that “those who do will face an easier time of it.”

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover

Infinite Stairs and Dissected Buildings | Marcin Bialas | Socks Studio

Marcin Bialas is a Polish artist who’s specialized in etchings and drawings in black an white. Among his large production, a recurring theme is dissected buildings and surreal constructions, such as infinite staircases and labyrinthine interiors, an atemporal combination of G.B. Piranesi and Brodsky/Utkin prints. The structures seem unfinished, yet already in ruin, able to plunge the viewer into an uncomfortable feeling. Somewhere between nightmares and theatrical settings, Marcin Bialas’ retro drawings explore the dramatic potential of different projections and points of view.
