Counterpoint by BJM: Raising money for any narrow cast programming is difficult to say the least. So I was surprised but pleased to learn that they had rejected a proposal by AORMS (Association of Online Reputation Management Services) to buy a rotation of 30 second ads for their members. These are shady businesses that will remove an unwanted search result in Google for a fee. If a search for your company is revealing damaging information on page one of Google's search results, like the fraud you committed last year by selling non-existent products or services, it's very likely that one of these companies would be willing to remove that bad result for a fee. There are some ethical suppliers who will not take clients who have harmed others, but the majority will gladly take your money. But this entire industry would not even exist if Google provided an easy way to challenge problem search results with a process for removing private or harmful information. Kudo to TR for recognizing that some services should not be advertised, by anyone. Karma always comes back to you.

F2M Trans Mark Angelo Detransitions Back To Maritza
Mark Angelo and Lynna Cummings
His recent detransitioning back to “Maritza” outraged some of his fans, and his controversial stance caused sponsors to dump him. His new wife M2F trans Lynna admits that she is attracted to Mark more than Maritza. If you are rolling your eyes, please wait a moment. This couple is wiser than any headline might lead you to think.
Six years have passed since I wrote about Cummings for South Florida Gay News http://southfloridagaynews.com/Tony-Adams/mark-angelo-cummings-songs-in-the-key-of-f2m.html when he was living in Hollywood, Florida, with his then-wife Violet, and beginning a career as a singer/songwriter. After several years traveling and living in New Mexico, and with a few unsuccessful relationships with men and women behind him, Cummings has returned to Fort Lauderdale with his new wife. When I ask him if he has continued to write songs and to perform, he seems surprised by the question, and it is clear that he has spent six years generating an all-encompassing online presence in word, image and video about what it means to be trans. That did not leave much time for music.
To be clear, his detransitioning back to female is on hold for the moment as the couple takes this time to settle into Victoria Park and a new phase of their life. You can still follow Cummings’ brutally honest self-presentation on Facebook, on his blog and on his Youtube channel where fans’ tempers sometimes flare.
Cummings did not disguise his very practical reasons for stopping his detransitioning. The money, the icy reception by his parents, the apartment hunt and his wife’s love put a stake through the heart of the freshly reborn Maritza.
Online, he clearly describes his practical decision with these words, “All of the events that took place from pounding the pavements finding an apartment that would be affordable, in a good neighborhood and free from scammers, led to my knowing that detransitioning was not an option for me after all. I felt vulnerable as Maritza and had to use, yes I know, my male privilege to get the job done. It is a jungle out there and unfortunately my alpha nature [as Mark] is needed to be taken seriously and to protect my wife and I during certain situations[…]Nonetheless I don’t regret the 3 months of my attempts to detransition, but in those three months, I quickly learned how much I hated fussing over myself, the make up, the worrying about what I was going to wear, the looking in the mirror and not liking what I saw. In the end, it would take way too much money to detransition and to make things look presentable after 13 years of testosterone and all of the secondary characteristics that it created. I am who I am, and after all at 51 years of age, I can’t put myself through all of that. I became Mark 13 years ago, and Mark I shall remain.”
Building on those words, I asked Mark who he actually is. He replied, “I am two-spirited. Sometimes the female part of my nature comes to the foreground and sometimes my male side dominates. I think we are all like that to some degree.”
In listening to Mark and Lynna, I find that what separates them from most people is their fearless ability to give expression to what is in their hearts without worrying about the approval of others, and free from the assumption that today’s decision must be monumental or permanent. Gender-presentation seems to be a small part of their deep devotion to each other, and the gifts they give each other are more lavish than their sex organs.
Lynna tells me that soon after their arrival in Fort Lauderdale, Mark brought her to the Wilton Manors bar Alibi. Walking through that door, Mark rejoiced at being in a crowd of gay men and proclaimed them to be his people. Did that moment upset Lynna? Not in the slightest. She shrugs and smiles when she tells me about this. She knows and cherishes her husband to the core. She accepts the entire package that is Mark Angelo and Maritza Cummings without much concern about the wrapping. Glad to have all three of them nearby, I hope Mark will pick up his guitar and write some new songs.

Activists Exposed: The Big Name Behind Their Fight Against Gender Transition
After an investigation spanning six weeks, The Advocate reveals how those few voices arguing against gender transition are finding followers.
By Dawn Ennis
July 17 2015 11:35 AM EDT Updated October 01 2015 3:02 AM EDT
Mark Angelo Cummings — author, former occupational therapist, and social media personality — has been a transgender man for 12 years, but now says he is “ex-trans.” And, with his newlywed wife, he seeks to build a movement against gender transition.
“I have been a member of this community for a very long time,” Cummings tells The Advocate. “I considered myself a very strong advocate in the beginning, trying to educate people regarding this issue.” He cofounded the Internet program Transition Radio with his ex-partner Jessica Lynn Cummings for that express purpose.
Now he says he has a different lesson to teach:
“Educate people that they don’t have to do this, that they can live comfortable in their skin. Instead of gender specialists giving people letters to get hormones and surgery, let’s deal with the real issue they have, which is neurological impairment, mental issues.”
“The body’s not the issue, the brain is,” added Lynna Arielle Lopez Cummings, who married her cohost Thursday.
In this article, even though Lopez is the third woman in Cummings's life to take his last name, for the purpose of clarity, she is referred to by her maiden name, Lopez.
Lopez, who formerly identified as male-to-female transgender, continues to present in the feminine gender. The Santa Ana, Calif., native and Cummings, a Cuban by birth, live in Silver City, N.M.
“I accept that I was born male,” Lopez tells The Advocate. “I accept that I am biologically male. I accept that I will always be male. That’s immutable. It can’t be altered.”
“The original birth of who we are, I feel, in my opinion, is who we truly are," says Cummings. "The other is another part of us, I think a lot of us have a male and a female side. But those in the trans community tend to want to kill that initial side. And I believe that’s wrong. We should be allowed to present our gender-nonconforming self instead of [being] placed in a box” labeled male or female.
He directed us to use male pronouns here, “since people know me as ‘he’ for the 12 past years." Cummings says he and Lopez now identify as “two-spirit” or “gender-variant,” saying, “We all have this duality — it’s part of human nature; a male and female energy, something that I believe is very normal, but society doesn’t allow that.” He says he considers that he might be intersex. Online, he also refers to himself as dual gender, using both Mark and his female birth name, Maritza.
Cummings told his story to The Advocate by phone as well in Facebook posts and messages like this one:
“I was a hormonal nightmare growing up, problems with my reproduction organs, intermittent menses (4 times a year), enlarged clitoris, etc."
But Cummings says it was his mind, not his body, that started him down the road to transition, due to what he said was the power of suggestion. As he explained in our interview:
“At 37 years old, I went to an all-women’s resort with an my then ex-partner, and somebody asked me, ‘Hey are you an FTM [female to male]?' Because I was a female bodybuilder and I was in pretty good shape, and I was taking steroids to masculinize me. I had never heard what an FTM was before.
“I went on Google, and then all of a sudden, boom, wow! This is me.
“Who would want to feel as ‘less than’ all your life, being told that being a lesbian is incorrect, not right? Now, all of a sudden it was like, ‘I can be a man and then be looked upon as normal?’ Boom. Power of suggestion.”
On Facebook, Cummings denounced the therapist and surgeon who changed his life in 2003:
“I went on Testosterone, and 5 months later, I had my precious breast and my amazing reproductive organs ripped out of me, all in a quest to be a ‘man.’
“What sane person does this, and what medical professional who swears to do no harm goes along with this diabolical plan? I am sorry but now that I have come to my senses and see what this vile community has become, I see the reason for the vileness and the darkness in its intent.”
He summed up his feelings and the campaign he and Lopez launched in three sentences:
“Gender dysphoria is a lie, I don't expect many to believe me or understand since you are still entrapped in your delusions. A woman can never be a man or visa versa, we can't change biology, and what the medical system has allowed for profit should be shamed and prosecuted.”
“I for one no longer identify as trans,” Cummings tells The Advocate, “because I no longer feel the term trans holds any water. I feel that’s a garbage term. It was coined in the ’90’s as a way to promote a product.”
