Apparently, not resolved

This story has many layers to it. Past hurt. Current hurt. The current state of ambiguous journalistic practices. lexi tronic’s statement on xtra! boycott by trans activists, editor’s posting of her birth name on facebookIn my opinion, the right things to do are: a) Danny Glenwright apologizes wholeheartedly (it is not his choice to make to let others know of Lexi’s triumph with her birth name, plain and simple)b) discussions with Xtra’s advertisers who are allies of the Trans communityc) mandatory sensitivity training on cissexism for all Xtra staff.

A matter of respect for trans people

I enjoyed the feature article on Lexi Tronic that is currently up on Xtra. Andrea Houston is one of my favourites.But this type of thing is just ridiculous. Why did an editor use her name on his Facebook? Xtra does not have a good history with gender identity issues.Just apologize, Mr. Glenwright. You did wrong.

Help with next Sex City show?

I would love for my next show to be dedicated to a particular activity or fetish. In the past, I’ve done shows on blood play, foot fetish and…well, I think there have been others. Can you think of a good topic I could explore? Leather comes to mind. Perhaps watersports? Different clothing fetishes could be combined…readers will be familiar with my fondness for blue jeans. What would you like to hear? Lemme know!
