Trans issues[edit]

Heya, welcome to Wikipedia! I guess it's wise to contribute in areas you're well versed in, but you've chosen a rather contentious topic to contribute to, believe me. :P I'd like to talk a bit more, but I'm limited in some circumstances what I can say on-wiki (especially as some editors may see it as a personal attack); if possible, could you please set an email address in Special:Preferences and email me? Thanks, Sceptre (talk) 01:42, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Hey Will, thanks for the welcome! :-) I just set an email address for myself and tried to email you, but a message came up saying that you did not accept email from other users. So I'm not sure what's up with that. But in any event, it would be nice to talk to you about this because you look like a very experienced editor, and I'm sure I could learn a lot! Rebecca (talk) 03:08, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
Oops, forgot about that. I used to get a lot of abuse through to the address, so I stopped people from emailing it. E-mail sent. Sceptre (talk) 06:29, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

Nomination of Cathy Brennan for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Cathy Brennan is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Cathy Brennan until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. §FreeRangeFrogcroak 00:04, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

Cathy Brennan[edit]

If you wish to have this article deleted without waiting for the AFD process to run its course, you can replace the article's contents with {{db-g7}} (i.e., delete all the text and just leave that template there). This will tell administrators that you, as the creator and primary contributor of the article, are requesting deletion in good faith. Quite honestly, after seeing that you identify as transgender and looking through the material on this person, your creation of her bio serves only to make her more notable, which is probably not the effect your were going for. Anyway, it's up to you. Let me know if you have any questions. §FreeRangeFrogcroak 05:08, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

April 2013[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Gynandromorphophilia. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. Sædontalk 20:20, 28 April 2013 (UTC) vandal[edit]

Do you know what to do with the vandal?? Georgia guy (talk) 00:55, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

Well, it would definitely help if you engaged with this person on the Talk page like I am doing. I'm not sure if I would classify them as a vandal. I disagree with their edits, but they seem to be serious about backing up their the case for their changes with argumentation and evidence. I just happen to disagree with their conclusions. But if you agree with me that the edits they are making to this article are inappropriate and in violation of MOS:IDENTITY and WP:NPOV, it would be a great help if you could express that on the Talk page. It will be harder for this editor to be successful if it's obvious that the Talk page consensus is against their changes. Other than that, I don't have any thoughts really about what to do here. Rebecca (talk) 01:31, 25 May 2013 (UTC)


I am reaching out to say "hello". I noticed some of your thoughtful remarks about the Bradley/Chelsea Manning controversy. I admit that I need to learn more about these issues. I am a 61 year old straight married male with two young adult sons. So, call me "cisgendered" if that is accurate, although to me, that seems like a box I didn't choose. Way back in 1969, when I was 17, I traveled from Detroit, my home town, to New York's East Village, to smoke marijuana and see the wider world. There, I met a young transgendered person, who spoke frankly about their pain and challenges. I was neither offended nor repelled. I felt only compassion for the pain they expressed, and a hope that they would find peace. Every time since then, when I have been confronted with LGBT issues, I have been proud when I spoke up for social justice and acceptance, and shame on those past occasions when I chose expedient silence. I am not a perfect person, but feel great compassion for those of us who suffer from the very sharp edges of conventional thinking. Please forgive me if I have expressed myself too boldly. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 05:48, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for reaching out, Cullen. It's always nice to know there are people here who want to be welcoming to Wikipedia's trans editors. I'm also happy that you recognize that trans folks are oppressed in our society. And it is, in fact, very important that cisgender people like yourself do speak up and express a belief in justice for trans folks (and just FYI, the standard spelling is "cisgender" and "transgender," not "cisgendered" and "transgendered.") Anyway, cheers, and I look forward to collaborating with you on Wikipedia in the future! Rebecca Weaver (talk) 06:56, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

Talk:Christine Jorgensen[edit]

Please check out the discussion at the last section of Talk:Christine Jorgensen and see what your thoughts on what JanetWand is saying are. Georgia guy (talk) 16:08, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

"As a male"[edit]

User:Epicgenius appears to think "as a male" is an acceptable phrase to describe the image of Chelsea Manning. There has been an argument between me and this user; please see User talk:Epicgenius for details. Please reveal your thoughts on which one of us is right.

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Picture. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 18:26, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
