Notable Quote: “Smashing the gender binary is dangerous political provocation in today’s climate. Ignoring stereotypes that are ingrained in the American psyche is inviting failure. Demanding that passing privilege shouldn’t matter, when it clearly always has, and should have no role in marketing the community to its neighbors, is a mistake.”[1].

Notable Quotes:

“According to court testimony, Aerison was born with male and female genitalia and never had sex assignment surgery. She made national news in 1990 when, at age 26, she was arrested for criminal impersonation for enrolling at Coronado High School as a 17-year-old and joining the female cheerleading squad.”[1].

“Aerison was born on June 1, 1964. His father, Leo Daugherty Jr., once told a newspaper that his son was a “perfectly normal” kid who played baseball and hung out with the guys but traded his athletic gear for cheerleading pompoms in high school. Then one Halloween, “he put a dress on.”[2].
