This trans nurse was pepper sprayed at work then forbidden to use a shower
Jesse Vroegh had to seek medical treatment because he was refused access to the male bath and locker rooms after a chemical agent training session.

A trans nurse working in a prison hospital was left unable to shower after being covered with pepper spray – because he wasn’t able to use the same bathroom as his colleagues. Jesse Vroegh’s request to use the right bathroom had been turned down because it was ‘too controversial’.
Now the American Civil Liberties Union has filed a complaint with the Iowa Civil Rights Commission.

The transgender nurse says the discrimination is even worse because it was carried out by the state of Iowa itself. It happened at the Iowa Correctional Institution for Women (ICIW) where Vroegh has been a staff nurse for seven years. He announced he was transitioning and living full-time as male, as part of his treatment for gender dysphoria and related depression and anxiety. But Voregh said his employer refused to allow him to use bathrooms and locker rooms matching his gender identity.

‘In this country and in Iowa, everyone should be treated fairly in the workplace — especially when your employer is the state,’ Vroegh said in a statement. ‘Rather than setting a good example for other Iowa employers, the state has denied me the use of gendered spaces as well as the health insurance coverage I need, simply because I am transgender. I hope my fight for fairness in the workplace will make a difference for the many other transgender people who have faced similar discrimination at work.’

Vroegh said after he informed his employer of his transition in March 2014, he asked them to develop trans friendly policies. But when the nurse asked his supervisor about beginning to use the male bath and locker rooms in October 2015, no policies had been made. A month later he spoke to the ICIW’s warden, Patti Wachtendorf, medical director Dr Harbans Deol and Todd Givens, a representative of Vreogh’s union, about using single-sex spaces. They denied his request, out of concern for ‘the rights of the male officers’, the complaint states.

In April 2016, the warden informed Vroegh there would not be a policy for trans employees because it would be ‘too controversial’. But being forced to use the unisex bathrooms doesn’t just isolate Vroegh from his colleagues and aggravates his gender dysphoria. In one case, he was stopped from having a shower even though that put his health at risk.

‘Following a chemical agent training in which I and other staff members were sprayed with pepper spray, all staff were allowed to shower immediately afterward to remove the chemical agent,’ Vroegh’s complaint claims. Because my employer has denied me access to the men’s shower facilities made available to other male employees, I could not shower to remove the chemical agent until I got home.’

He later had to seek medical treatment for painful, continuing headaches.
Vroegh’s employer-sponsored medical insurance provider, Wellmark Blue Cross, are also subject of the complaint for refusing to cover medically necessary treatment, with similar treatment provided for non-trans employees.
Iowa is one of 18 states expressively offering protection against workplace discrimination.

Hey, Dipper and Mabel!

Blendin here. I’m Currently living in the year 1883, and I hid this letter in hopes that it would one day reach you. (I got the idea from the movie “Return Backwards to the Past Again 3,” which is required viewing for time Academy freshmen.) You’ve probably got a lot of questions, and after the events of Weirdmageddon, man, i don’t blame you!

So here’s what happened; After Globnar, I was getting a LOT of flak for losing a gladiator fight to two children. Even though I got my job back (thanks for that, by the way!), my fellow officers kept calling me hurtful nicknames. Time Baby himself called me No-Friendin Blandin! Do you know what it’s like to live like that?

Just as I was thinking I would give anything for Time Baby’s respect, this weird triangle guy showed up in my dreams and said what he would make sure Time Baby never bothered me again. All I had to do was shake his hand! I’ve never been great at making decisions under pressure, and, well, you know the rest! When I awoke, that stupid triangle had used my body to travel through time and destroy the entire universe-and Time Baby, too!

Luckily, Time Baby isn’t dead…exactly. It will take one thousand years for his molecules to reconstitute, and when they do, boy, is he gonna be cranky! The time agents also survived-they only send their holo-projections out on dangerous missions. But Lolph and Dundgren were FURIOUS about what I did!

Of course, this means that there is a dimension-wide manhunt of agents trying to find me and bring me to justice. But it was all a mistake!

The last thing I want is to go back to jail, so I’ve been hiding out in the past. It was fun for a while-seeing the sights, chatting with historical figures, visiting the ‘50s to try to learn the Twist. (i accidentally twisted my ankle and couldn’t walk for a week.)

I wanted to check out the old West, too, but when I traveled here, I accidentally appeared` right in front of a train and my time tape was shattered into fifty pieces. (Also, I think the train might have gone off the rails. Hopefully that isn’t in the history books!)

Anyway, I just wanted to say not to worry about me! I’ve managed to blend in to the populace, and I got a job as a pocket watch repairman, I’ve also caught one of those cool gold rush-era diseases that’re so popular in these times, and I am loving the nostalgia! Thanks for all your help, and if any time agents come looking for me, tell them you don’t know nothing!

Why the UN’s first ever LGBTI expert is not quite what you may expect
UN Human Rights Council voted to appoint Independent Expert on sexual orientation and gender identity but the job has a few surprises

The United Nations is looking for a global expert on LGBTI rights but there’s a problem with the application form. The UN Human Rights Council voted to appoint its first ‘Independent Expert on protection against violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity’ in a historic decision on 30 June. But UN bureaucracy hasn’t quite caught up.

The application form refers to potential candidates as ‘he/she’ throughout. And it gives only two ‘sex’ tick-box options for applicants – ‘male’ or ‘female’. A UN spokesperson admitted to GSN that the standard form wasn’t appropriate for a gender identity expert. Those with other genders could, perhaps, tick both boxes, he suggested. And there are a couple of other things applicants should know about the job.

First, it is unpaid. The LGBTI expert will get expenses and the support of the UN Human Rights Commission secretariat. But they will be expected to have ‘independent means’ or another source of income that will support them.
Independent experts are, therefore, often university professors or lawyers whose other jobs support the role. This was widely misreported at the time of the vote. And secondly, it is part time.

So how long does the UN think is needed to visit countries, draft reports, engage stakeholders and attend meetings in New York and Geneva as its first and only LGBTI expert? ‘An estimated total of approx three months per year.’
Applications are open here and will close on 4 August. The Human Rights Council will appoint the chosen expert at its September meeting.

California Board of Education unanimously approves LGBT history class for public schools
The class will cover milestones in LGBT history, major figures and the rights movement. New class guidelines in California’s public schools will now include major LGBT milestones and figures.

The new guidelines ask schools to include the place of LGBT Americans in the country’s history.

‘We are proud to represent a diverse state, and we are proud that this framework reflects the state that we serve,’ Lauryn Wild, a curriculum specialist who worked on the new guidelines, told CBS SF.

These new guidelines will mean teaching children about diverse family types and the rights movement in second and fourth grade. The California Board of Education unanimously approved the curriculum changes. The law was introduced in 2012, but was held back by disagreements over interpretation and religious and conservative activism.

A major complaint of the new provisions is the lack of mention of Native Americans and the concept of manifest destiny, or the policy of integrating Native Americans into the United States.
