Just recently an individual in Georgia had her request denied by a judge to have her name changed. Rebecca Elizabeth Feldhaus, who is in the process of being a female to male transgendered individual (she was born a woman but now identifies as a man), is wanting her name changed to Rowan Elijah Feldhaus.
Feldhaus’s request was denied by Superior Court Judge David Roper, on the grounds that the middle name chosen by Feldhaus (Elijah) was not gender neutral and can be misleading and even dangerous in some circumstances.
Feldhaus’s attorneys are now attempting to overturn the ruling by going to the Georgia Court of Appeals, claiming that Feldhaus’s constitutional rights have been violated. So it remains to be seen how this case will turn out.
This story pales in comparison to the next transgendered tale — that of Elliott Sailors. Born a woman (and still a woman) she became a model at age 19, and her career highlights included Ford Models and Abercrombie & Fitch. She was your basic female model. But several years down the road, natural changes with age began to take shape (no pun intended), thus making it harder to her to get modeling gigs. Apparently the modeling industry is very particular about age and physical features when it comes to female models, even for twenty-something women seeking to be models.
So what did Elliott decide to do? She decided to become a male model. She shaved her head, started wearing men’s clothes, and became part of the LGBT community due to her masculine appearance, as well as being bisexual. All the while she still does identify as a woman, especially since she was married to a man by the name of Adam Santos-Coy, who approved of her decision to become androgynous. But then Elliott soon became more interested in women than in her husband, so she soon filed for divorce, and is now a full-fledged lesbian.
It appears that Adam is okay with Elliott’s decision, although I don’t know this for a fact. One might be tempted to feel sorry for him, because it leaves people like him thinking “What did I do wrong?” But then again, his approval of her bisexuality and being androgynous led to the end of their marriage.
So, for those of you all who think there is nothing wrong with your spouse being bisexual, think again. Your marriage might soon be over.
Now that Elliott is 100% lesbian, perhaps she should be wary of heading to gay clubs or gay pride parades, considering what just happened in Orlando and Los Angeles, the former of which is being labelled by authorities as both a terrorist attack and a hate crime. So there will probably be calls for more hate crimes legislation. There already are calls for more gun control, just like what happened after the San Bernardino terrorist attack.
Meanwhile, in an unrelated story, Justin Bieber got beat up after getting into a fight with a much larger man after attending an NBA Finals game. Several months ago he had snubbed Ronda Rousey and her sister, apologized for it, then made snide remarks about her after she lost to Holly Holms.
My question is this: what did Selena Gomez see in him?
