This woman totally doesn't get it. "Elective plastic surgery" my ass. Maybe she should talk to some post and pre-op trans people before she goes spouting off about things she clearly knows nothing about. I agree that caution should always be used when selecting a surgeon, but her cavalier attitude indicates to me that Ana hasn't done her homework on this procedure or on trans people in general. And Cenk comparing it to dental surgery tells me that he should join her in becoming better informed on the topic before making a fool of himself.

Last night on Twitter, I was attacked by whoever is hiding behind the account Gender Identity Watch. These Trans-Exclusive Radical Feminists (TERFs) believe that trans women are not true women and don't belong in women's spaces. They also actively work against trans inclusion in non-discrimination law and have been accused of intentionally outing trans women to their employers with the intent of getting them fired. While I must admit on some level I'm surprised it took them this long to get to me, they've apparently dug out my old male name with the intent of causing me problems, embarrassment, or whatever. Yes, I'd prefer that name not be known or used, but really, what am I gonna do? I've already written it into my memoir, so it's not like it's the end of the world if it gets out.

During my confrontation with GIW, I was challenged to invite Cathy Brennan, perhaps not a TERF leader but certainly a spokesperson, on my show. I responded that if enough of my listeners said they wanted to hear that interview, I'd do it. Otherwise, I have no interest.
So, I'm putting the question to you. Should I invite Cathy Brennan on the show? Why or why not?

I'll be interested to hear your thoughts.

Trying to get Jasmine to sit still for a pic is not easy. Also, my photography skills suck.

SHOW NEWS: It’s with great sadness that I must report that Michael Scott Ferguson, Producer of “The Rebecca Juro Show”, has decided to leave the show due to medical issues, effective immediately.

Mike and I have worked together as a team on this show for almost nine years, and to simply say he will be greatly missed would be a gross understatement. To me, Mike Scott is all at once beloved friend, trusted teammate and advisor, and my biggest fan. If I’m any good at this radio stuff at all, it’s in large part because I’ve had the benefit of a great coach and a producer with the skill to show off his host at her very best all rolled up in one awesome guy. I could not love or appreciate him more.

Right now, it’s hard to imagine continuing to do this show without Mike at my side every week, but the show will go on. Mike has helped me grow and improve as a host in so many ways, and I’ve relied on him for so much. There’s no doubt in my mind that “The Rebecca Juro Show” would not, could not, be what it is today without the astounding amount of time and effort Mike has put into it, nor, for that matter, could its host.

Now, it’s time for me to take what Mike and others have taught me and use this opportunity to take the show in a new direction. Beginning with next week’s show, I will begin webcasting the show solo through the BlogTalkRadio platform.

You’re going to see a lot of changes in the show going forward, but here’s what won’t change: You’ll still hear the same kind of hard-hitting coverage and commentary on the LGBT and trans-relevant topics and issues our community is talking about. You’ll still hear interviews with interesting and important figures in our community. You’ll still be able to call in and join the conversation by phone or Skype. And there’s more, much more.

For example, we’ll now have double the number of live listener slots available than we used to, so hopefully we won’t max out as much anymore.

For another thing, we’ll have a chat room for the show at the BlogTalkRadio site. I plan to use it, and I hope you will too.

With the show’s BlogTalkRadio streaming plan, I’ll now have the ability to do up to a two-hour show every day. Now, I wouldn’t be counting on me doing two hours a day, but I definitely don’t rule out the possibility, in fact the probability, that I’ll start logging more on-air hours.

The “official” show will remain at its regular Thursday evening time slot, but you may find me going on-air at other times to cover breaking stories or discuss an important topic, maybe even to pre-record an interview for later webcast on the show. As always, keep an eye on Twitter and Facebook to know when these are happening.

For those of you who listen to the podcast, not much should change for you. You’ll still get the show through the same Podomatic page and I-Tunes feed you always have. That may change at some point in the future, but not right now.

I’m in the process of teaching myself the BlogTalkRadio system and its capabilities, and I can tell you that this platform gives me the freedom to do things we couldn’t do on the old platform. I plan to take full advantage of those abilities to improve the show. What that means exactly we’ll discover together as we move forward.

I’ll be posting more information on this as we get closer to Thursday. I ask both your indulgence and your participation as I transition the show over to BlogTalkRadio. I’m sure I’m going to have some issues, and at some point before next Thursday I’m probably going to ask you to join me in the show chat room to help me test the system. If you’re free I hope you’ll join me.

Over the last month or so, I’ve been thrilled and honored that the show has gained a lot of new listeners. I want to thank all of you, those of you who are new to the show and those who have been listening and supporting this show for a long time. You drive me to make this show the very best it can be and I love you for it.

In the end, this show may have my name on it, but it’s all about you, about all of us, collectively as a community. Trans women, and trans people in general, are speaking out loudly and proudly and our voices are being heard and heeded, even by those who would prefer to simply ignore our demands for basic human respect.

That’s a big part of my mission with this show. I want “The Rebecca Juro Show” to be a place where the topics and issues that matter most to LGBT people, and especially to trans people, are not just a two-minute throwaway story on the nightly news or a five-minute segment on MSNBC, but are the priority and the featured content.

When Mike and I created this show, I decided I wanted to “flip the script” of most LGBT media and prioritize trans people and issues while still giving LGB-relevant news and topics some coverage. That’s what Mike and I did for almost nine years, and that’s what you can continue to expect from “The Rebecca Juro Show” going forward.

So, that’s it, at least for now. Again, I’ll post more info on Facebook, Twitter, and GooglePlus as we get closer to Thursday.


Thank you, for being the reason I’ve been at this labor of love for over twelve years now. Without you, there is nothing.

More soon.

Peace and Power,
Becky

SHOW NEWS: Tonight on the show, I'll lead off the show with another story that clearly demonstrates why trans women need to keep speaking out against those who would condemn us for speaking out against disrespect, including those who self-define as members of the trans community. Then, we're talking ENDA and a lot more with Diego Miguel Sanchez Apr! Second hour, we've Chloe and Lexi, trans game developers, to take on trans people in gaming. And then, as if that's not enough, Will Kohler of Back to Stonewall joins us with a special story concerning Sylvia Rivera. The entire show repeats 3 minutes afterward.
It's all tonight, 7pm eastern, 4pm pacific, on The Rebecca Juro Show"! Studio Call-In: 928-277-4921 Live Feed: http://q1.fm

Their service dept. keeps my Rav-4 on the road, and what's more they're insanely easy and convenient to deal with. The only thing I could hope for as an improvement would be if it were a bit less expensive. Their work is always first rate.
