2017 Winter Quarter Update

Hi my peers!

I am currently unable to maintain the website or try to work out the club. If you wish to work on the website and/or take the lead for the club then email me (doe.e.mori at gmail.com) as well as our adviser, Steven Martel.

The website administrator could be changed to you. Or you could work with other aspects of the club. It’s your choice.

I’ve set up as much as I can on this website and I hope this can launch your efforts with less difficulty than I had.

 

Thank you and have a nice day.

April 20th Update

Hey folks!

It was nice meeting you guys at our table and I hope that the emails got out to all of you who are interested in the club. As of right now, all of them went through but Sophie. If you happen to see this Sophie (whose not the Sophie in the contact us), please email ______ at gmail.com if you are interested in getting in contact with me.

As for people who are visiting the website from the flyer or heard of it through other means, Welcome! This website covers a variety of TNBI, LGBTQIA and intersectional issues which you can explore. Some of them are lacking in information, especially intersectional issues like racism, sexism, xenophobia, etc. but for LGBTQIA topics we have a good selection of things to look into.

Update on Meetings:

Activism—1st meeting— May 2nd, Monday 1-2pm, classroom: TBD, subject to change

Support— 1st meeting— projected to be late Spring 2016 and at the latest Fall 2016

 

 

Plus, here’s a basic run down of the club. If you read the poster, then you’ve already seen this.

———————-

ACTIVISM

Change

This may include a variety of initiatives such as: bringing awareness and ultimately banning all exclusionary signs from locker rooms (ex. “Women Only: Past This Point”) which alienate non-binary and trans identities which are forced to use that space for safety, to avoid harassment and/or odd looks. Another major step the club is pushing for is the addition of all gender multi-stalled restrooms for 1 story of every multi-story building on campus. Our efforts may also include the inclusion of pronouns on documentation as well as work in the community to fight anti-trans, non-binary and intersex legislation, in addition, to any other meaningful needs for the community that have to be addressed.

Education

Education comes into play on the website, speakers, panels, workshops, etc. For now, most of the education falls on the website.

This serves as a place to educate allies as well as fellow community members, in addition, to providing another way to connect those part of the community.

For those who want to get involved with the club, one way is to submit content or work with submitters to the website.

 

Writer: a person who submit original content on TNBI, LGBTQIA or intersectionality. This may be analyzing the coming out process: safety and dangers, stigma surrounding detransitioning, poverty among the queer and trans black community, etc. You may require research and opinions from reputable resources to solidify your research. As a writer, you may work alone or in a group of people for larger projects.

 

Editor: someone who works with writers to improve their content grammatically, structurally, etc. An editor can choose to produce content themselves while also editing fellow writer’s content.

 

Artists: They can submit content as long as it relates to TNBI, LGBTQIA, and/or intersectionality. An artist can have their name and/or pseudonym, contact information, and/or website listed with their work if they wish so.

  • Fiction
  • Non-fiction (ex. coming out stories, family/friend experience)
  • Short stories
  • Stage plays/screen plays
  • Poetry
  • Other literature
  • Visual art
  • Arts and crafts
  • Music
  • Film

 

Researcher: This will usually be a person who looks into books, movies, TV, and animation on TNBI, LGBTQIA or intersectional subjects. The person will write a summary of the major points of the book and/or discuss intriguing concepts relating to the source material. As for how closely it relates to the TNBI, LGBTQIA, or intersection subjects: it must address the topic directly. Simply having a character or a brief mention of the subject does not count.

 

Support

  1. To provide the resources to transgender, non-binary, intersex and intersectional identities.
  2. To allow a space for non-traditional identities to vent and tackle life one day at a time

The support group is meant for transgender, non-binary, intersex, questioning, gender non-conforming, and emotional support friends.

All Gender Restrooms

All Gender Restrooms: Addressing Dissenting Opinions

 

Question: Why are all gender restrooms seen as a problem: single-stall and multi-stall?

Answers:

“I’m tired of talking about gender and transgender. Why should the world have to adapt to this tiny minority” (“Sharing Bathroom with Men Raises Questions of Cleanliness”).

The fact that a particular people make up a minority doesn’t excuse disrespecting them.If merely respecting someone’s identity isn’t reason enough (i.e. race segregation pre-1970s) then many trans people don’t feel comfortable going to the restroom to such an extent that a large portion are getting painful urinary infections. Gender segregated restrooms also are a place of violence, harassment and sexual assault for some trans people.

Especially for multi-stalled all gender restrooms, they would help cut into the lines in the women’s restroom.

 

“It’s too expensive to designate bathrooms as gender-neutral” (“Sharing Bathroom with Men Raises Questions of Cleanliness”).

This depends on what you are referring to. Single-stalled restrooms are relatively easy to change: buy a sign “for less than $20,” sometimes even less than that (“Sharing Bathroom with Men Raises Questions of Cleanliness“). These restrooms can be found in the form of 2 single stalled restrooms in public places as colleges. There is usually a men’s and a women’s single-stall restroom. You change the signs-BAM-gender neutral restroom for little cost.

Then for Elementary, Middle and High schools: there are often faculty restrooms which can be converted into all gender restrooms.

Multi-stall all gender restrooms is another story. From what I have heard, there hasn’t been much discussion on it.

 

“I don’t want to share a bathroom with men because men are slobs” (“Sharing Bathroom with Men Raises Questions of Cleanliness””).

That is a unfair to men. There are plenty men who are very tidy and clean people while there are also women who are very messy. Let’s just say toilet seats and some people who won’t sit *shiver*. In addition, restrooms can be disgusting spaces. It doesn’t matter if it’s the men’s or the women’s restroom.

 

“There is no difference between a Gender Neutral Bathroom and a Co-Ed bathroom” (“Gender Neutral Bathroom Initiative”).

Co-Ed is only for men and women. A gender neutral or all gender restroom acknowledges all gender identities and expressions.

 

“Drug use/distribution, assault, harassment are common occurrences in All Gender Restrooms. It also enables predators (sexual/not) to have free entree.”

There are 2 main aspects to this claim.

Drug Use and Distribution

In single-stall all gender restrooms that may be a problem. A participant has the ability to lock the door with the utmost privacy. They potentially could have multiple people in there during an exchange or do drugs themselves. Then again, most of these single-stall restrooms were originally single-stall gender segregated restrooms which gives a person as much of a change to do and distribute drugs in either setting- a simple sign does not change that. However, you still have to address the potential problem since, compared to multi-stall restrooms, nobody will walk in on a participant which allows for more lucrative activity. That is where the trade off comes in. Are we going to close all single-stall restrooms to half-assedly address the problem of drugs and thereby force trans people to face harassment, violence, and a life of urinary infections from not peeing while also disrespecting them?  A question to ponder…

 

Assault, Harassment, Predators

This may a little known fact, but signs don’t stop people from assaulting or harassing people in gender-segregated restrooms either. “Trans people actually risk MORE assault and harassment within gendered bathrooms than cisgender people” (“Gender Neutral Bathroom Initiative”).

Plus, “ ‘In places where transgender-inclusive policies exist, there has been no increase in [restrooms] public safety incidents,’ said Nick Adams, GLAAD’s director of programs for transgender media. He added that even when nondiscrimination protections include transgender people, it’s always illegal “for anyone to enter a public restroom for the purpose of harassing or harming another person, or invading their privacy” (“ ‘Bathroom Panic’ Doesn’t Help Anyone”).

“Access to safe bathroom space is such a basic need” because of the enormous about of discrimination and harassment that trans* people face (“ ‘Bathroom Panic’ Doesn’t Help Anyone”). Trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming inclusive restrooms does not force people to use non-segregated restrooms. At this point, there will continue to be a plentiful number of gender-segregated restrooms.

– – –

On a somewhat related note, there hasn’t always been gender-segregated restrooms.

Back in 1887, Massachusetts was the first to pass a law mandating gender segregated restrooms, which many states quickly followed suit. The laws were put in place

During this time, women were growing in the factory workforce and public life in general which “triggered a paternalistic impulse to “protect” women from the full force of the world outside their homes” (“Sex-Segregated Public Restrooms”). As a result of this perceived need, places like “rooms at libraries, parlors at department stores, separate entrances at post offices and banks, and their own car on trains, intentionally places at the very end so that male passengers could chivalrously bear the brunt in the event of a collision” (“Sex-Segregated Public Restrooms”). Today, we don’t see many of these except for restrooms and locker rooms.

“Kogan [author of the book, “Toilet: Public Restrooms and the Politics of Sharing which the article author is referencing] admits that ‘it is not at all obvious what led regulators to conclude that separating factory toilet facilities by sex would protect working women.’ His research suggests that sex segregation was seen by regulators at the time as ‘a kind of cure-all’ for the era’s social anxiety about working women” (“Sex-Segregated Public Restrooms”).

 

Overall Assessment:

  • Why should we adapt to this tiny minority?

To respect them and to increase efficiency of restrooms.

  • It’s too expensive

Change gender segregated single-stall restrooms by adding a 20 dollar sign (and removal of urinals depending where you live).

If there are no single-stall restrooms, convert several multi-stall restrooms with signs (and removal of urinals depending where you live)

  • Men are slobs.

That’s a factually incorrect stereotype aka. not all men.

  • Co-Ed, all gender- same thing.

Co-Ed is for men and women while all gender restrooms are include everyone.

  • Drug Use/Distribution

This applies only to single stall. It’s a worthy trade off to protect trans/non-binary/gender non-conforming people rather than perform a half measure that might prevent drug use/distribution.

  • What about assault, harassment and predators?

This usually only applies to the women’s restroom. Statistically, there is not a large difference. Plus, no one will be stopped by an unmoving sign and unlocked door.

  • Other women will deter the predator.

A well lit, quiet public location will do the same (“Why Are Bathrooms SEgregated by Sex in the First Place?”) http://www.huffingtonpost.com/katherine-ripley/bathrooms-segregated-_b_8524374.html .

  • Nobody of the opposite gender can enter.

Nobody is checking genitalia before you go into the public restroom.

  • It preserves the social order.

 

Social Order

Last explanation of not having all gender restrooms is to preserve the sense of social order. “It’s similar to the reason we separate our sock drawer from our underwear drawer. Each thing has its assigned place, and that makes us feel better” (“Why Are Bathrooms Segregated by Sex in the First Place?”).

Contrary to belief, tomorrow will come even if transmen go into the men’s restroom and transwomen go into the women’s restroom. Whether we create a all gender, single-stall restroom or even a all gender, multi-stall restroom, the Earth will continue to turn.

Accommodations

Do you find that your disability, anxiety, lack of social skills, lack of English, general awkwardness, etc. prevents you from being apart of/participating in the club or meetings? Do you feel that you can’t access the website because of formatting because of the afor mentioned reasons or something else entirely?

I do my best to predict all the ways that I can make the group more accessible to all Bellevue College students and internet onlookers but I cannot predict everything. I know this can be the hardest thing ever to ask for help but as I said before, I can’t predict everything. I need input from you peeps individually as well as a group in how I can help each of you get involved if you want to. Whether that may be helping organize events at club meetings or doing individual research on a particular topic, there is always something you can do for the activism portion.

As for the support portion, that is where more of the telling me how I can help you individually especially comes into play.

 

I hope this helps for anyone who is feeling that they want to participate as a Bellevue College Student but is feeling left out because of the personal circumstances at play.

BC Library: LGBTQ Resources

LGBTQ Library Resources

Personally (Doe Mori), I haven’t looked at any of the resources on here and I plan to go through as much of it as I can and then request the library to get more but for now, this is one of the best way to find resources for LGBTQIA related topics in the physical and local realm of Bellevue College, second to a knowledgeable community member.

Welcome!

This is the Transgender, Non-Binary, and Intersex: Support & Activism Club website. The main purpose of the website is to provide resources to the TNBI individuals and their intersectional identities. I encourage anyone to donate resources, critique what is already there, add diversity to our very white-washed resources.

As of currently, we haven’t finished creating the frame work for the support group which will likely start in the Spring Quarter. The activism portion of the group will come about likely in the Spring quarter as well. The dates of either have yet to be decided.

Contact doe.e.mori@gmail if you have any questions or complaints.
