Parents Help 5-Year-Old Girl Live As Transgender Boy

WERE-AM 1490

transgendered five year old boySince the age of 2, Kathryn always believed that she was really a boy in a girl’s body. At first, her parents simply assumed that their child was a tomboy.

But, according to the Washington Post, Kathryn’s insistence that she was indeed a boy was something far more serious than a phase or stage of gender confusion. Her mother, Jean, actually went as far as buying a book on transgender children–without her husband’s knowledge–and read the book cover to cover.

When Kathlyn was 4, Jean decided to share her suspicions that their daughter may be a boy with her husband, Stephen.

“Have you noticed that Kathryn wants to be a boy?” she remembered asking one night as she and Stephen were washing the dinner…

Tom Joyner Puts Roland Martin in Check…Now What?

How will Roland respond to the public chastisement from The Fly Jock

The Fly Jock is one of the most powerful men in Black Media and he's showing it

The drama for outspoken correspondent Roland Martin continues. Now the “Fly Jock”, Tom Joyner, has issued a written “smack down” chastising him for prolonging the issue with GLAAD.

In his statement, Joyner says  “When people are offended by something we say or do, it doesn’t matter what our intentions are. The job of the offender is simply to apologize and learn a lesson about what to say or do going forward.”

He continues with “Your mission is greater than your principal.  It’s no longer about you. Now it’s grown into something bigger than you are, but only you can make right.”

2 things are going on here. He is flexing his muscle in the African-American community and he is probably responding to pressure from GLAAD as well. Interesting enough though, is there isn’t any written threat of his job being in jeopardy with the TJMS. Tom focuses on Roland’s job with CNN, not his daily correspondent segment with the TJMS. At least not yet.

Well Roland, “Check”. The next move is on you.

Oh yeah…by the way, he managed to give a backhand slap to Tavis Smiley as well. I guess he just couldn’t resist himself. Check out the full open letter here.

CNN, Tom Joyner and TV One Contributor Has Learned The Hard Way about the LGBT Community's Sense Of Humor

Anyone who follows Roland Martin on Twitter know that he can get under your skin. Especially if you are a fan of the Dallas Cowboys, anyone Republican or if you are a member of any black fraternity besides Alpha Phi Alpha. He also  is an annoying advocate of any team from Houston and Texas A & M. He is a master at what is called in black culture of “playing the dozens” or “jonein.”

Through social media, Roland has mastered the art of self promotion, which has helped him fill the void of the one black guy that CNN calls on for all things political. He definitely understands the art of blending news and entertainment. Make no mistake, he’s a great political analyst.

Well during one of his many tweets during the Super Bowl, he made a critical mistake that many of us born before 1980 (he was born in 1968) make. He forgot that disrespecting the LGBT community in this day and age is the quickest path to contrition, sanctions and unemployment. Whether real or imagined, the homosexual community is not going to tolerate it.

I have talked about this many times on Life Full Circle Radio. There are a ton of us 35+ that need to be “reprogrammed.” As a child growing up in the 80s, it was common for young boys to call each other “gay”, “faggot”, “homo”, etc as a means of insulting our friends and enemies. Of course it was “cool.” Our uncles, dads, grandpas and, dare I say, mommas used those terms all the time to either demean us or motivate us to act. One of the most motivating insults to get a kid to fight a kid picking on them, was to call them a gay slur if they didn’t stand up for themselves.

Well fast forward 3o years and what do you have? A 40+ year old journalist, who ran his tweet through the 12-year-old Roland filter, instead of his current mind that should have taken into account what was at stake. His career.

Many of us have to be reprogrammed. We have to balance whatever we feel about the homosexual community, with what is culturally accepted today. Ultimately, we have to live and let live.

Make no mistake, Roland can try to spin that tweet anyway he wants. That was absolutely an insinuation that if anyone was at your Super Bowl party and thought that David Beckham’s ad, slightly made you want to buy a pair of his underwear, you needed to, figuratively, get smacked up. Why? Because you were showing attraction to a man in his drawers, and would be considered as acting “gay.”

Do I believe that his statement was to be taken literally? Of course not. Roland was simply running his mouth, or better yet his fingers…on Twitter. That is simply what he does. Once again, if you follow Roland on Twitter, you see him jousting with people all day long.

Unfortunately, he lost sight of the fact he was not in his high school gym, he is on the world’s stage for all to see. I doubt he will make that mistake again. The stakes are too high.

Is Gay The New Black?

This week on Life Full Circle Radio we will be asking the question, is Gay the new “Black”?! Why would we ask that question? Very simple. Whenwe currently talk about civil rights for Americans, we are primarily talking about the rights of homosexuals. The democrats are running on it as part of their platforms and Republicans are running from the subject as fast as they can. Sound familiar? That has been the strategy for the last 50 years when it comes to African Americans.

So as the civil rights fights are heating up in the arena of gay rights, there is a relentless fight to all but repel affirmative action in employment, education and other benefits that have been an asset for some semblance of equal treatment for blacks.
