Melissa Ferrick, who I adore. But she has changed her stance on Michigan and performed again this year.

MWF, it's a tough thing to decide about. I waiver back and forth.

What's interesting, to me, is the website overhaul. There was a very detailed response to the "no trans women" policy, as recently as January because I was again considering going this year and wandered around to see what was going on with the debate.

And look at this, the "male" presence this year was highhttp://www.michfest.com/ubb/Forum7/HTML/000433.html - there are several discussions about it on their forums. Ack, it just gives me more to think about.

I'm still thinking about this on the post-BlogHer tangent, and thinking how to state my preferences more inclusionarily than my knee-jerk reaction, which was totally exclusionary, i.e., "get these guys the fuck out of here now." What I'd prefer would be to have attendence at women-centric events limited to anyone who identifies, at least partially, as female. I want to around people who know what gender discrimination feels like. I think almost every person you've listed above would get that.

But I've never seen a policy for these events that doesn't exclude people it thinks it was including. My ideal policy above would exclude BlogHer attendees like Eggbeater (I believe it was Eggbeater) who made several public comments about not identifying as male or female.

And as for limiting attendence to people who've had genital reassignment surgery, WTF is up with that. Will they be asked to show their ticket and then drop their drawers?

I guess I wish that events would be attended by people who are there in the true respectful spirit, rather than infiltrators with agendas.

Off to get coffee and party prep like a fiend. See you later.

The SF Exiles say that members have to "be a woman or a person whose gender self-identification is other than male" This implies a cut-off point for transmen, but allows for a lot of complication.

Okay, since I wrote this, I got a bunch of emails & stuff that a transwoman got into the mich fest etc. and all was peacy and the world was changing. But then almost immediately there was an official press release from Vogel.

Julia Serano has some in-depth thoughts and coverage of this, added to her earlier post. Do read it if you want to get some awesome education on these issues!

Three phrases should be among the most common in our daily usage. They are: Thank you, I am grateful and I appreciate.
