Subject: Action underway against upcoming Anne Lawrence speaking
Date: Tue, 15 Jul 2003
- Dear Lynn,
- Regarding the J. Michael Bailey fiasco, apparently
Anne Lawrence is planning
to speak at Toys in Babeland, a national women-owned, queer and
sex toy store. She's speaking on August 3rd at the Seattle store
topic of sexuality of male-to-female transsexuals, and there
is now a letter
writing campaign underway to alert Toys in Babeland of Anne's
and history of sexually inappropriate behavior. The object of
is to encourage Toys in Babeland to cancel the speaking engagement,
as it is
generally felt that Anne's views on transsexualism are not reflective
diverse experience of transsexuals.
- The speaking announcement is located at:
- The following is one link asking for support
of this campaign, and we expect
a good amount of support from members of the board. For the sake
disclosure, the campaign is being pursued by my partner.
- Here are several email addresses where people
can get in touch with the
folks at Toys in Babeland.
Seattle workshop information: email@example.com
TIB owners: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
- If you could make mention of the campaign
on your website, it would be
greatly appreciated, since we feel that a transwoman who supports
views is ultimately harmful to the TS community, especially in
such a public
- Best Regards,

- This is Beth Flanagan, Christine Johnson's
partner. I checked the TIB
site and Anne Lawrence's site yesterday and sure enough, Anne's
has been removed.
- BTW, Thank you for all the hard work you've
been doing. Activism is always
