Two transgendered women made the news this week.
And the reasons were very different.
Jenna Talackova, a Canadian transgendered female, was forbidden to take part in the Miss Universe Pageant by Donald Trump, (who evidently owns the contest).
The 'good' news is that after hiring an expensive American lawyer and making a big and very public fuss she is going to be allowed to strut her stuff after all.
Now she can degrade women just like anyone who was born with a vagina and has the looks, the money and the shallowness to enter the contest.
I was still pondering her 'win' against Mr. Trump when Angela Turvey made the local headlines.
Angela Turvey is a transgendered female from Niagara who works as a peace maker for the Occupy movement.
Unfortunately she had her nose broken and an eye socket fractured when some police officers took her to the ground while she was filming a scuffle between the protesters and the police in Toronto a few days ago.
The case is now being investigated.
Jenna Talackova is trying to make a difference for marginalized people
and so is Angela Turvey.
The difference is that the people in Jenna's margin are 1% of the wholewhereas Angela belongs to the 99.
