Harriette Cunningham, a Comox transgender girl, and her family have made a formal request to remove gender from her birth certificate, which they hope would improve equality for transgender people across the province.  A lawyer for the Cunningham family said there is no precedent for such a request in British Columbia.  If the Vital Statistics Agency, which issues birth certificates in B.C., denies the request, the family plans to file a human rights complaint, said barbara findlay, the Cunninghams’ lawyer.

Texas woman stripped and jailed over unpaid traffic ticket

By Travis Gettys

A north Texas woman said she was ordered to strip and then jailed over an overdue traffic ticket.

Sarah Boaz said she was cited in August for running a stop sign, but she later lost the ticket and failed to pay her fine.

She said she knew that was wrong, but she was still surprised Wednesday morning to find a Richland Hillscity marshal waiting outside her home with an arrest warrant….read more, please:

Cops Questioned Me About Knitting at Starbucks

  

I’m a man. I knit teddy bears. You got a problem with that?

  

Gregory Patrick, knitting.

October 23, 2013  |

I’m sitting at Starbucks, which I rarely do. It’s hard to knit there. I lot of people still find it weird for a man to be knitting in public. But, for us fellas that knit, it’s nothing short of ordinary. There are many people that see us, see what we’re doing and find themselves asking us lots of questions. And they have no problem stopping to ask questions while you’re in the middle of counting.

I’ve been asked on numerous occasion on email if I ever go out to knit with groups or have knitting friends. Sadly, I don’t. I’m too busy counting. I can’t lift my head from the stitches to hear what’s being said. I’m so focused. I’m…

UNICEF: Armutserfahrung bei vielen Jugendlichen langjährig

Mehr Hilfe für benachteiligte Kinder in Deutschland gefordert

AFPAFP – vor 27 Minuten

  • Benachteiligte Kinder und Jugendliche in Deutschland laufen laut einer UNICEF-Studie Gefahr, gesellschaftlich zunehmend abgehängt zu werden. Wer als Kind dauerhaft unterhalb der Armutsgrenze leben müsse, sei als Erwachsener deutlich unzufriedener mit seinem Leben - "gelernte Hoffnungslosigkeit" mache es schwer, Herausforderungen im weiteren Leben zu meistern

    AFP – Benachteiligte Kinder und Jugendliche in Deutschland laufen laut einer UNICEF-Studie Gefahr, gesellschaftlich zunehmend abgehängt zu werden. Wer als Kind dauerhaft unterhalb der Armutsgrenze leben müsse, …Mehr  sei als Erwachsener deutlich unzufriedener mit seinem Leben – “gelernte Hoffnungslosigkeit” mache es schwer, Herausforderungen im weiteren Leben zu meistern  Weniger 

Benachteiligte Kinder und Jugendliche in Deutschland laufen laut einer UNICEF-Studie Gefahr, gesellschaftlich zunehmend abgehängt zu werden. Zwischen 2000 und 2010 machten rund 8,6 Prozent der Kinder hierzulande langjährige Armutserfahrungen, wie aus einem in Berlin vorgestellten Bericht des UN-Kinderhilfswerks hervorgeht.

Die meisten dieser Kinder lebten sieben bis elf Jahre lang in einem Haushalt, der mit weniger als 60 Prozent des Durchschnittseinkommens auskommen musste. Von der neuen Bundesregierung forderte UNICEF verstärkte Anstrengungen, um die Teilhabechancen benachteiligter Jugendlicher zu verbessern.

“Wir müssen die am stärksten benachteiligten Kinder frühzeitiger und umfassender unterstützen?, mahnte der Berliner Sozialwissenschaftler und Herausgeber des aktuellen UNICEF-Berichts zur Lage von Kindern in Deutschland, Hans Bertram. “Der Ausbau von Krippen, Kitas und Ganztagsschulen allein reicht nicht aus, um das Wohlbefinden und die Teilhabe dieser Kinder zu sichern.?

Der Studie zufolge haben Armutserfahrungen starke negative Auswirkungen auf Kinder, wenn sie mindestens ein Drittel der Kindheit andauern. Wer als Kind dauerhaft unterhalb der Armutsgrenze leben müsse, sei als Erwachsener deutlich unzufriedener mit seinem Leben – “gelernte Hoffnungslosigkeit” mache es schwer, Herausforderungen im weiteren Leben zu meistern.

Im internationalen Vergleich der Industrienationen schneidet Deutschland laut UNICEF beim Wohlbefinden von Kindern im oberen Drittel ab. So gebe es Fortschritte bei Bildung und Gesundheit. Auch die materielle Situation der deutschen Mädchen und Jungen sei mit Platz elf unter 29 Ländern vergleichsweise gut. Allerdings berge der Blick auf Durchschnittswerte die Gefahr, die gravierenden Probleme eines Teils der Kinder zu übersehen, warnte das Kinderhilfswerk.

Von der Politik forderte UNICEF ein Bündel von Maßnahmen zur Stärkung benachteiligter Kinder und Jugendlicher. So solle die neue Bundesregierung in einer gemeinsamen Kraftanstrengung mit Ländern und Kommunen konkrete Ziele zur Überwindung der Kinderarmut entwickeln. Alle in Deutschland lebenden Kinder sollten nach Auffassung von UNICEF zudem einen eigenen Rechtsanspruch auf eine Grundsicherung erhalten.

Das Kinderhilfswerk verwies zugleich darauf, dass benachteiligte Kinder zielgenaue und frühzeitige Förderung sowie gut ausgebildete Lehrkräfte benötigten. Auch sollten die Rechte der Kinder ausdrücklich im Grundgesetz verankert werden. Darüber hinaus solle ein Beauftragter für Kinderrechte auf Bundesebene ernannt werden.

600 children go missing in Navi, Mumbai, every year

600 kids go missing in Navi, Mumbai every year

If your child ventures out alone in the afternoon to play in a nearby ground, you have reason to be worried. He or she could be one of the 600 children, from Navi Mumbai, who never return home, each year.
According to the Navi Mumbai police records, around 50 children go missing from the city every month. While a small percentage of these are found by thepolice, and some make their way back on their own, a majority of them are lost without a trace.
According to activists, there are two reasons to be anxious. Firstly, the Navi Mumbai police department never takes the issue seriously. As most parents of missing children are poor and uneducated, the police tend to ignore such cases and, at times, don’t file an FIR, activists said.
Secondly, there are many active begging rackets in the city, which lost children fall victim to.
An RTI query filed by an NGO, Conscious Citizen Forum, revealed that the Navi Mumbai police has not taken any action under Bombay Prevention of Begging Act, 1959, in the last 10 years.
Maharashtra state home minister RR Patil recently wrote a letter to Navi Mumbai police commissioner AK Sharma, asking to take the menace seriously.
“We can see hundreds of children begging near bus stands, railway stations, temples, markets and other public places. It’s quite shocking and shameful that the police have not registered a single case under the provisions of Beggary Prevention Act in last 10 years,” said K Kumar, president of the NGO.
Shobha Murthy, founder of another NGO, Aarambh, which has been working for the promotion of slum children’s education for the last 17 years, said, “I can claim from personal experience that the Navi Mumbai police are not child-friendly at all. It is unfortunate that certain officers even take money from parents of missing children just to file an FIR. On the one hand, the police don’t take action to tackle the issue of the children roaming the streets; while on the other, if such children commit a petty crime, they are picked up and put in remand homes where they are forced to share a room with a 16 or 17 year-old who has committed serious crimes like robbery and murder.”
“We have come across many officers who, just by looking at the face of the child, decide that he or she is a criminal. If a 6-year-old boy or girl becomes a criminal, I don’t think it is his or her fault.
The whole of society is to blame for it,” she said.
According to Murthy, there are many rackets in both Mumbai and Navi Mumbai that drop children at the busiest junctions to beg early in the morning and pick them up in the evening. “Most such children have a similar background: An alcoholic father who abandoned the family, a mother who works as a maid, economic conditions that forced them to leave school etc. Begging rackets target such children and use them to make money,” Murthy said.
“What is heart-wrenching is that they get beaten up at the end of the day if they cannot collect the desired amount. They are only paid Rs10 to 15 to have a vada pav and the rest of their collections is taken away by their bosses. As the children are afraid of getting beaten up, they commit crimes like theft and picking pockets to satisfy their bosses,” said K Kumar.
“We don’t know if the police really have any idea about this menace. Unless and until they take this issue seriously, nobody can save these poor children from begging rackets,” he said.
Police vow to act against racket
Shrikant Pathak, deputy commissioner of police, crime, confirmed that no action had been taken under the Bombay Prevention of Begging Act ever since he took charge one year ago. “We don’t know if there are any begging rackets, but if we find evidence against anyone, we will take action,” he said….
