Every day, a new word for our confused, ever-evolving pansexual vocabulary list. Now, we encounter "bigendered"!
The transsexual/transgender Tiffany Club of Massachusetts is hosting its annual "First Event" conference in January at the Peabody Marriott. Its keynote speaker is "Juli" Owens, who calls himself "bigendered" -- and is clearly a man (sometimes) posing as a woman. Listen to his manly voice here.
"I'm more than a cross-dresser, but less than a transsexual, and that's OK, that's a choice that I've made." Hmm ... a choice, not born that way?
And soon, if the Massachusetts "Transgender Rights and Hate Crimes Bill" H1722 is passed, you'll have to accept his sort of choice in public places, private businesses, even your churches and schools.
Already, even without a "trans rights" law, the Peabody Marriott has no problem hosting this event, and has already sold out 291 "room nights" to attendees. After all, who would want to miss the pool party, or the fashion show to be hosted by a transgender man (posing as a woman). [11-27-07 Note: This fashion show host has requested his photo and identification be removed ... which we have done. Unlike the homofascists, we honor such requests when the person in question claims his personal safety may be jeopardized -- which was never OUR intent. We simply want the public to understand what "transgenderism" and "transsexuality" mean.]
Back to Juli [emphasis added]:
Juli Owens is a Bi-gendered biological male. She has been aware of her uniqueness since the age of 4 or 5, and has been crossdressing publicly for almost 30 years. Despite our society’s lack of understanding and acceptance, she has successfully balanced her life with a formal education that includes an engineering degree and an MBA, a 30-year career as a manufacturing manager, and as a husband and father.
Juli is extremely active in the Long Island LGBT community. She is a member of two Long Island Transgender support groups, the Long Island Trans Experience and the Long Island Femme Experience. Juli is a member of the Long Island Transgender Day of Remembrance Committee, and has been an active participant in the service for the past 3 years. She is also a Board Member of LIGALY, the Long Island Gay and Lesbian Youth Center. ... In March 2005, she attended her first Congressional Lobbying Day in Washington DC, where she met with Senators Clinton and Schumer’s staff.
