Mister, Miss; Teach Me Darn it!
Lily McBeth, 71, underwent sex reassignment surgery and reapplied to her position as a substitute school teacher in New Jersey. Parents were horrified that a postoperative transsexual would be allowed to teach at the school and protested – vigorously. The school board has said they stand by the decision to allow McBeth to return to her teaching post. Parents say they are appalled. McBeth says the school board decision is “diversity in action.” The school has students from kindergarten to sixth grade. McBeth was married for 31 years and had three children as a man.

Although swimming places a high demand on virtually all muscle groups, the American Journal of Sports Medicine has found that unless there is a strict diet change, it is not an effective method for weight loss. In one of the journal’s studies, they found that folks placed on the exact same diet, but three different exercise regimens, showed very different results. Those walking and jogging lost 17 pounds, while those on a cycling program lost 19 pounds, the swimmers actually gained 5 pounds – all in the same three month period. It was also found that swimming in cold water triggers the body to increase caloric consumption. It was also found that running, walking and jogging can decrease appetite, while swimming tends to increase appetite. Finally, researchers said swimming beats no exercise, but it is best to have cardio exercise that includes some sort of weight resistant training to increase metabolic rate and accelerate weight loss.

It is reported that 1 in 5 men entering the prison system experiences a forced sexual interaction with another inmate. Worse, HIV infection is 5 to 10 times higher in prison than in the free population; this may be due to the lack of adequate protection when forcible rape is involved. It is believed that victims of rape are not always beaten, but assume there will be extreme violent consequences if they don’t consent to the sexual act.
Not your man. Although many women have had their husband, boyfriend or sexual partner serve time, they don’t believe their man has had any sexual interaction with men – even when that man has served substantial time in prison. Do you believe that a man’s sexual interaction while incarcerated in any way affects his sexual orientation when released? Is it possible for a man to forgo all sexual interaction, affection and attention while incarcerated simply because he is heterosexual? Do you believe men who have served time would honestly tell their partners on the outside of any sexual interaction they may have while incarcerated?
