Vasco discovered that the village of Quarequa was stained by the foulest vice. The king’s brother and a number of other courtiers were dressed as women, and according to the accounts of the neighbours shared the same passion. Vasco ordered forty of them to be torn to pieces by dogs. The Spaniards commonly used their dogs in fighting against these naked people, and the dogs threw themselves upon them as though they were wild boars or timid deer. The Spaniards found these animals as ready to share their dangers as did the people of Colophon or Castabara, who trained cohorts of dogs for war; for the dogs were always in the lead and never shirked a fight.

This from Pietro Martire D’Anghiera’s account of Vasco Nunez de Balboa massacre of Native American trans folk which took place October 1513.

Houston – On September 2,  Dr. Keith Ablow, the Fox News psychologist, advised parents not to allow their children to see a transgender person on television because he feels that doing so might turn children into transsexuals.  The statement was made in response to an announcement that Chaz Bono, a transgender man, would appear on the next season of Dancing with the Stars…

So yes, this is satire. I’m not ex-trans and I’m not a right-winger who thinks that the trans community is actually linked to Red China. Yes, there are real radio chips in Chinese-made underwear; yes, the sperm count of American men is dropping; yes, countries closest to China are overrun by trans folk (Thailand); yes, electromagnetic waves interfere with brain function; yes, Chaz Bono will be on Dancing With The Stars and the KJB notes that one of the devil’s names is the Morning Star; and yes, there is a real Korean trans girl bandcalled Lady. In case you’re wondering, most of the radio ads are real (I’ll let you guess which ones are fake) and with the exception of the show my friend and I did, the rest is actual right-wing drivel.

Roberta Cowell was the first known British male-to-female transsexual to undergo sex reassignment surgery.
Born Robert Cowell, he was a Spitfire pilot in World War II and a racing driver after the war. She had a vaginoplasty on May 15, 1951 via a surgical method invented and performed by Dr. Harold Gillies. This occurred 2 years before Christine Jorgensen’s surgery in Denmark. Roberta Cowell’s surgical transformation and friendship with the female-to-male transsexual Michael Dillon, also operated on by Dr. Harold Gillies, is documented in the book “The First Man-Made Man” by Pagan Kennedy.
