I love that Maxine (yes, the lady in the yellow shirt is Maxine) is wearing the blue beads.

Also.. you never know how hurt a person is, or what they have really been through. Never assume you've had it harder. Because you really can never know how broken a person can be inside.

That link takes you to a petition to get Amazon to categorize transgender fiction to not include erotica. As someone who routinely searches for trans fiction of all media, books have been the most frustrating to try to find.
Please take the one minute out of your life to sign it. Help us make a difference, and help people like us find meaningful fiction about those with GID.

If you do sign, please put -WF somewhere in there as well, we are attempting to judge impact.

You can tell a lot about someone from their nose

It's the teacher in the self-defense class - everyone else has nice rounded, downward nose but not her - she has a spikey nose. Ok, so I realise she may have been the victim of abuse as well, but she acting like a total ratbag

@stickygirl: It's true, both the self defense teacher and the orderly have upward pointed noses. This is more coincidental to my lack of understanding of the human face more than malicious intent against people with upwards pointy noses.

However, I know at least one character coming up (you meet him in a week) that has an upward pointed nose and he is good news! At least for now.

People's noses have basically no thought behind them except to have a little variation, and to show a little bit of family connection. For example, Dad and Bill's noses are downwards pointy, but Annie's is downwards rounded. Lexi, Julie and Dan have the same nose (though Dan's is a little longer).

As for the teacher being a total wench, it isn't (as far as I know) about abuse. She is just on a feminist bent, the kind that doesn't help anyone and just hurts people. The kind that I simply cannot abide by. I am a feminist, I try to write strong female characters, but I don't do it by hating male characters. This is the type of feminist that teacher is - the kind of believes empowering women means hating men.
