    ‘Domestic Violence: A resource for trans people’ was produced in 2009 by The Greater London Domestic Violence project, in collaboration with the LGBT Domestic Abuse Forum and NHS Barking & Dagenham.

    The resource has been written primarily to assist trans people who experience domestic abuse. There is information as well as links to UK resources.

    We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re aproaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter:
    ‘Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended’ They pay for their order, take the two and leave.

    I ask my friend: “What are those ‘suspended’ coffees?”
    My friend: “Wait for it and you will see.”

    Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four ‘suspended’. While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square infront of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in throught the door and kindly asks
    ‘Do you have a suspended coffee ?’

    It’s simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm bevarage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwitch or a whole meal.

    Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such cafés or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support ? If you own a business why don’t you offer it to your clients… I am sure many of them will like it.

    How to Feed a Town: The Incredible Edible Project
    Adele Peters wrote in Food, Sustainability and Sustainable Design

    Four years ago, a group of residents in the small English town of Todmorden decided to adopt an ambitious goal: by 2018, the whole town would become completely “food independent,” growing and raising all of the food it needed itself, through the Incredible Edible Todmorden project.

    Now, virtually every free piece of land in the town is filled with food, from yards in front of the police and railway stations, to parks, schoolyards, backyards, and traffic roundabouts. Everything grown on public land is free for anyone in town to take. The nonprofit running the project also offers classes in everything from baking bread to pickling.

    What’s misandry, again?

    • Women perform 66% of the world’s work, but receive only 11% of the world’s income, and own only 1% of the world’s land.
    • Women make up 66% of the world’s illiterate adults.
    • Women head 83% of single-parent families. The number of families nurtured by women alone doubled from 1970 to 1995 (from 5.6 million to 12.2 million).
    • Women account for 55% of all college students, but even when women have equal years of education it does not translate into economic opportunities or political power.
    • There are six million more women than men in the world.
    • Two-thirds of the world’s children who receive less than four years of education are girls. Girls represent nearly 60% of the children not in school.
    • Parents in countries such as China and India sometimes use sex determination tests to find out if their fetus is a girl. Of 8,000 fetuses aborted at a Bombay clinic, 7,999 were female.
    • Wars today affect civilians most, since they are civil wars, guerrilla actions and ethnic disputes over territory or government. 3 out of 4 fatalities of war are women and children.
    • Rape is consciously used as a tool of genocide and weapon of war. Tens of thousands of women and girls have been subjected to rape and other sexual violence since the crisis erupted in Darfur in 2003. There is no evidence of anyone being convicted in Darfur for these atrocities.
    • About 75% of the refugees and internally displaced in the world are women who have lost their families and their homes.
    • Gender-based violence kills one in three women across the world and is the biggest cause of injury and death to women worldwide, causing more deaths and disability among women aged 15 to 44 than cancer, malaria, traffic accident, and war.

    Hey all, a good buddy of mine is conducting a survey through the Center for LGBTQ Evidence-Based Applied Research (CLEAR) at Palo Alto University.

    Anyone can participate who is 18 years or older and whose current gender identity is different from their sex assigned at birth. Participants must be living in the United States or Canada.

     

     

    If you could all signal boost this, that would be awesome!

    Love,
