Would You Give Your Employer A Photo Of Your Genitalia?

Trans Woman Sues Over Photo Request - Courtesy of The Advocate. This is even more ludicrous than the Gay Sex Causes Swine Flu story.

What job on earth could possibly necessitate submitting a photo of your genitalia to your employer? I doubt even establishments like the Mustang Ranch require such documentation.

How humiliated this woman must have felt. To me there is just no excuse for this kind of discrimination.

100th Post!

It's hard to believe this is our 100th post here at FCR. As some of you may know, my partner, Anastasia started this blog, actually under a different blog name, renamed it FCR and then abandoned it earlier this year.

I want to thank our growing, loyal following. I know you're all out there, give a shout out in the comments once in awhile. We really enjoy your comments.

Gay Sex Causes Swine Flu - NOT!

Check this out: Doc Claims Gay Sex Causes Swine Flu - Courtesy of The Advocate.

Is this supposed 'Doctor' serious?
"According to Bernama, Malaysia’s state-run newspaper, Dr. V.M. Palaniappan, a practitioner of complementary therapy, lists avoiding masturbation and homosexual activities as preventative measures against H1N1."
"when one masturbates, or indulges in homosexual activity, his (her) body develops friction heat, and that produces acid, making the body hyperacidosed, giving burning sensation while urinating and toileting, and making the person an easy target for H1N1 infection."
Where did this 'Doctor' get his degree? A Cracker Jack box?

Time For A Question - From Ann

If you are the age group who grew up with John Hughes movies, did you have a favorite? If so, why? Do you still quote John Hughes movies? Give me a quote!

For my #1 favorite John Hughes movie and quote see Lola's Diner. My 2nd favorite John Hughes movie is The Breakfast Club (1985).

My favorite quote is:
Brian Johnson: "Saturday, March 24,1984. Shermer High School, Shermer, Illinois, 60062. Dear Mr. Vernon, We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did *was* wrong. But we think you're crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us - in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Correct? That's the way we saw each other at 7:00 this morning. We were brainwashed."

One of the WGN radio hosts is suggesting that as on homage to John Hughes, everyone introduce themselves this weekend, wherever they go as Abe Froman, Sausage King Of Chicago. I think it's brilliant.

So, hi, I'm Abe Froman, Sausage King Of Chicago and I'd like to thank you for stopping by FCR today.

We Are Obviously Not Equal

Another blogger invited their readers to sign up on MckLinky so she could see who was stopping by to read her blog. When I see these, I think it's the perfect opportunity to promote my blogs. It's like a Meme with a MckLinky, but only better because you just need to put your link and you don't need to do anything special. No questions to answer, no photos to post. You get the idea. Promotion...with no strings. Or so I thought. I put links for ALL 3 of my blogs:
Lola's Diner
Lola's Victory Garden
Fire Crotch Rocket
Shortly after entering them, I got this email:
Dear Lola,
I just wanted you to know that I removed one of your blogs from the link up today. This is a free country and I in no way want to tell you what to do. That is your business and your decision. I also don't want you to think that I don't respect you are in any way see you as less than me. I see you as equal with me in God's eyes - truly. But I felt, for me, the subtitle on your Fire Crotch Rocket blog was a little too much for my eyeballs and perhaps some of my other readers. Since it's my blog that's linking people up, I hope you aren't offended if I remove just that one link. I think your other blogs will be enjoyed by other XXXXXXX XXXXXXXX readers. Just a difference of opinion/conviction.
I hope you'll understand and will respect my decision. I don't want to offend you. I appreciate that you read my blog and am so very grateful for each one of my blogging chums.
Thank you for understanding Lola.
Have a lovely day.
We are obviously not equal if you feel you must censor your blog and remove my FCR blog from your list. None of my blogs contain objectionable material such as porn, naked photographs or adults only material.

Oh, and by the way...I hope your readers are enjoying My Ninth Conversation 10 Months 10 Lives Challenge. This post was scheduled for Friday, but I moved it up in response to your email.

Yes, I am a lesbian. Out and Proud and I am going to blog about fighting for my Civil Rights and the rest of the GLBT community. I post updates on our cause on FCR and I post and comment on articles that are contrary to our cause. I post wins and losses.

This is definitely a loss. Your loss. And all of your readers.

It's not a difference of opinion or conviction.
It's censorship. Pure and simple.

When Is It A Good Time To Go?

At the movies that is. You've got your king combo of a 64 ounce beverage and a bucket of popcorn. You've settled in, the previews are done and the movie begins. Oh-oh! You've got to go. You don't want to miss anything good in the movie. What do you do? Before the show, check out RunPee.Com, or order their Iphone Application for $0.99.

RunPee.Com tells you how far into the movie is the best time to go. It also give you the line in the movie at that point to give you a cue. It shows (by way of a text paragraph or two) what you've missed while you ducked out to use the facilities and lets you know how long it's ok to be gone so you don't miss anything really good.

I don't know that' I'd remember to check out RunPee.Com before I go to the show. The other issue is, how many other movie goers are using it? If 38 minutes into the movie is the best time to, ah er...go, will there be a mass exodus for the restrooms then?

I think the last time I made a dash for the bathroom at the movies was when my kids were little. I don't know that kids would actually wait until the best time though.

(Not a paid ad. I just came across this and thought it was interesting.)

So do you think you will use RunPee.Com?
Will you purchage the RunPee.Com Iphone app?
What do you think?
