Holiday Snaps???
An update to this post from earlier today. I've spoken to someone who was in the conference, and they asked Richard Green why he was taking photos of us.

Apparently he was doing it at the request of Zucker himself, who wanted a souvenir, because he "found the attention amusing".

So there are going to be pictures of me, a few other transpeople, and a bunch of allies in Zucker's holiday snaps album. Knowing what they say about those who protest too much, I do hope he's not planning to view them with a box of Kleenex at the ready.

Urgh! I think I need a shower.

And sandpaper.

What is even weirder is that Richard Green wrote a very supportive letter to the 'Guardian' a while back (I posted it on my LJ, somewhat flabbered of ghast) about the rights of trans kids. I had been told he was organising an alternative conference in protest at Zucker's presence in the UK which was plainly a lot of balls (although it came from someone I know and trust). I wonder just WTF is actually going on here?

So we 'amuse' him do we? Patronising creep! I'd like to amuse him with the rough end of a pineapple! Problem is, he'd probably enjoy it :o)

Not if you use Deep Heat as a lubricant.

And yeah, messing kids up totally for life is, like, so amusing.

Oh, and I gather that they both (Green and Zucker) take the view that there's a certain gender fluidity in young children, where, I guess, they can be "moulded" one way or the other.

Apparently nothing has been learned from the tragedy of David Reimer, who ultimately took his own life. How many more people have to die to satisfy the conjectures of these quacks?

I really hope that Zucker gets owned by some intelligent people who he shows that "album" to...

"and this is a picture of a group of trannys protesting against my work"
"Well, thats 'cause you're a moron, right?"

Eek! It's actually a bit scary - not sure how I feel about this kind of exposure. While flattering, it does make me a little bit nervous.

Interesting that he did the same photo thing to Lynn Conway. Too creepy...
