bashing at Dayton RTA hub
From the Dayton Daily News:
Man's realization triggers fisticuffs

Wednesday, November 07, 2007

DAYTON — Oct. 23: An assault was reported after a male at the RTA hub on South Main Street realized the person talking to him was actually a male dressed as a woman.

The male took offense and the two began arguing.

The male then punched the victim in the face and a fight ensued.

Security broke it up and called police, who ordered both men to report to the county prosecutor's office.

Worst possible reading:
Transgendered person assaulted for daring to exist and use a public bus stop. Police consider the TG's guilt (for being attacked) as equivalent to that of her attacker. Newspaper approves of the attack, reminds us that she's a "man", and that her existence gives "offense" and "triggers" violence.

Thing is, the writing is so confusing that it's hard to tell whether that's what actually happened.

Anyway. Kinda angry. I use that bus station frequently. Saying "that could have been me" is rarely quite this literal. And apparently, if somebody decides to physically attack me for it, the police will be on me just as hard as my attacker, and the local paper will sympathize with my attacker.

Oh, well. At least the article didn't mention anything about hospitalization or whatnot.

I don't know quite where to go with this. It's hard to know where I can take it, with the article so unclear. I may contact the author and ask for clarification.

harassment of LGBT-friendly churches
A conservative group is conducting a campaign of disruption and harassment against two churches in Columbus to punish them for their LGBT-friendly beliefs.
(Story)

The targeted churches:
First Baptist Church in Granville
King Avenue United Methodist Church

I'd like to send them some love and prayers from across Ohio. And, if you find yourself in Columbus on a Sunday, consider visiting them and giving them your goodwill in person.

letter to 94.9 The Sound
I just sent this email to 94.9 after hearing one of their radio spots.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Life is full of bad surprises, like finding out she is actually a he", goes your radio spot.

This made me wonder...

- What does mocking transgendered people have to do with 94.9?

- Do you honestly think we don't take enough sh** already?

I live in a small, genuine hick town... yet the people out here manage to be polite to me. For crying out loud, the woman who works at the grain elevator treats me like a human being, not a joke. You can't manage that?

The people at 94.9 are bigger rednecks than the farmtown folks? Now -that's- a bad surprise.

No, it's not the biggest injustice in Ohio. But I'm not interested in listening to them anymore.

I moved to Vandalia about a lil over a year now... use to live in Austin, TX. I feel so weird not seeing any openly gay/bi/les people like I did in Austin, lol. I have like no friends here (except for my co-workers), which sucks... Also afraid to tell them that I'm bi b/c I know this area is very churchy x.x;.

But anyways XD I wanna make some friends of my 'kind' I guess you can say o_o;

neato-mosquito Xmas light display . . . and looking for a job . . .
Does anybody know where this guy's house is and what frequency your radio needs to be set to in order to hear what music he's playing this year? More info can be found at http://www.snopes.com/photos/arts/xmaslights.asp . I don't watch the news much, so maybe it's been shown on their. I'd really like to get some sort of contact info for him (Carson Williams of Mason, OH) so I can find out more.

Also, I am looking for a new job. I'm being screwed over by my current employer and it's time to find something new . . . or at least something to help me supplement what little income they are providing me. I'd prefer to make $8/hr.+ . . . no food service and no telemarketing. Plus no heavy lifting and fairly flexible hours. I'd prefer to work somewhere with in 20 minutes of Fairfield, other wise I may end up just doing work study at school, although making the commute on a semi-daily basis would suck, as I only have class one day a week down there now.

Thanks a lot everybody.

Take Back the Night!!
Take Back the Night on Thursday May 19th!!
Take A Stand Against Sexual Violence!!!!!

Join the WSU community as we "TAKE BACK THE NIGHT"!!! This march to empower women will begin at 8pm in the Forest Lane Community Center. Although the march itself is a "women only space", men can support the cause by participating in a Men's Discussion during the march. The discussion will highlight challenging cultural norms on sexual assault. Following the march and men's discussion, we will all join on the Quad for a Speak Out and Candlelight Vigil.

If you want to hear some local talent and support a great cause, come early to the Artemis Center Benefit Concert beginning at 5pm in the Student Union Rathskeller. Tickets are only $5 and all proceeds will go to combat domestic violence!

Free Refreshments will be served at all events.

Both events are sponsored by WSU's Coalition Against Sexual Assault and the Feminist Majority.
For more information or directions please contact Carrie at cdetty@yahoo.com or 937.878.2847

Hiya. I just moved to Dayton, and I'm looking for friends in the area. I'm currently taking some time off from college (Smith) to earn money and have a break. Some stuff I like: reading, taking photos, long walks, singing, geology, languages... I like pretty much all types of music; what I listen to depends on my mood. I'm pretty liberal on the political spectrum, but I like engaging in conversation about politics with anyone who's interested.

Anyway, I'd really like to have some new LJ friends in general and some Dayton-area real life friends in particular! So comment or friend me or something if you're interested in talking more. :)

What are some nearby strip clubs featuring women that are 18+ instead of 21+? I'm planning an outing with some firends, but one is still 20. I've been to Diamond's Cabaret, but they're pretty expensive. I was thinking about the Living Room (only 5 bucks the one time I went), but I think you have to be 21. Any suggestions are welcome! Thanks!
