I'm kind of backing off the topic of intended vs. actual chromosome ratios relative to
this discussion since i would be glad to see OO folk here, just felt like your comment was
out of place and made a comment of my own. Achieving the desired gender balance has been
an ongoing struggle for every radically inclusive organization that I've seen. I am
however not aware of any elective procedures to swap out chromosomes, nor do I need to use
my imagination to be aware of several of my friends' decisions to alter more
accessible parameters with the goal of aligning them with what they feel they truly are.

Nah, but I could do with the extra 7
years of life expectancy females have in this society. And it
would be great if OO had a more balanced gender mix at meetings,
maybe we wouldn't make quite so many dumb decisions. And what
makes you think I was born this way? You can't imagine someone choosing
to look like me?

are you ashamed of the way you were born?

Every Sunday Occupy Oakland meets at OGP (e.g. Frank Ogawa Plaza) at
2PM for what is rather grandiloquently still referred to as General
Assembly, but lately it has been colder then the proverbial bucket
full of penguin guano and we would like to have our meetings at the
sudoroom common space through the end of January if no one objects
unduly. These days GA is perhaps a dozen folks, mostly dotards like
me, unfortunately predominantly cursed with a Y chromosome. We
almost never riot and torch the town these days, mostly just rehash
the previous weeks' political actions and plan the next weeks'
protests against the evil empire. These days our main focus is
labor & debtor solidarity, anti-repression organizing (e.g.
police brutality and surveillance), and attempts to protect the
commons & the environment.
Also, we would like to participate in the crypto-parties next Sunday
and in January. We certainly want to figure out how to protect our
own communications from being unduly monitored by the state and
Daniel & I may try and train a few of our folks how to use the
Wordpress interface for our web site. Anywho, I plan to attend the
sudoroom weekly meeting tomorrow after the Oakland
Privacy Working Group meeting and see if anyone objects to our
presence for the next month and a half.
