tgf_mondayHi TGFers! The Monday Edition was sounding a bit drab so I decided to rebrand this little digest of what we’ve got for you this Monday as the TGF Monday Experience. It kind of fits with the hyperbole that’s being applied to everything in the 21st century. Not just an “edition” but an “experience.” Ooooohhhh.

But you know what I mean. Take the weather reports. While I will admit it is as cold as a well digger’s posterior regions while he works down in a hole, the weather forecasters have been playing it up like we’ve never seen temperatures in the 20s or teens. Put on an extra layer and get going — maybe a second pair of pantyhose — and you’ll be fine outside. And I bet it gets warm again. But then the forecasters will be going on about how hot it is. People may say Angela Gardner is getting cantankerous but I believe that it’s just having to hear the same recycled, hyperbolic headlines every season, year after year, that makes me feel this way. Or mabye it’s just writing a new Monday Experience every Sunday night that’s wearing me down.

For inspiration I recommend a dose of This Week In Transgenderism by our News Editor Ronnie Rho. As I may have said in a previous Experience, Miss Rho has gathered all the TG news from around the globe and condensed it all with clickable links into one tasty TG info treat. She’s got stories on the TG running for city council, the T person who wants a uterus transplant, Amanda Simpson news (no, she’s not the Simpson who lip synched her singing act) and a whole lot more. Don’t miss TWIT!

Next up is the TransActive column from Christine Beatty. Christine has run afoul of a radical group. Fortunately she has not been injured by attacks from the Transsexual Taliban. She calls them that since they are as fanatic about their definition of the word “transsexual” as the Taliban are about their brand of Islam. Though their attacks are less violent than a truck bomb they still might do serious harm. Read about them so you can learn to defend yourself if they show up in your chat room. The information is all in this month’s TransActive.

On the lighter side, Miss Linda Jensen joins us this Monday with her column, Strangest Situations of 2009. We’ve all had some funny stuff happen to us while we’re dressed enfemme. Linda shares some that have happened to her friends and one of her own (be sure to click on the photo to get the full sized version) and she invites you to add some of the things that happened to you last year by using the comment box.

Wrapping up the posts for today is a slightly scary essay by Ronnie Rho about a former boyfriend of Ronnie’s current girlfriend who just can’t let go. Dumped long ago, he keeps returning to cause trouble and now he’s threatening to cause trouble for Ronnie. And people say we’re strange. It’s a dilemma that Ronnie is really having to deal with and she decided to share it with her TGF sisters. I’ve already sent her my advice. Use the comment box to give her your opinion on how she should handle the idiot. Any attorneys out there? Here’s a pro bono case fro ya. Read Out Among The Living for the sad details.

And that is our Monday Experience… aw heck. I can’t make it sound bigger than it is. That’s our Monday Edition of TGF for January 11, 2010. Enjoy!
