Here Are the 31 Gender Identities New York City Recognizes

The City of New York is deeply committed to protecting the rights of LGBTQ+ folks. So much so that Big apple residents can choose from a flurry of sobriquets — 31 in total, many of which fall along the male/female/trans continuum— to describe their identity, without ever having to show “proof” of gender.

A spokesman for the New York City Commission on Human Rights confirmed to The Daily Caller that the list is “not exhaustive.” Which implies that the list of genders the city recognizes may, in fact, be infinite.

Failure to comply with the NYCCHR’s views on gender identity, by committing what it deems to be “gender identity” based discrimination, can be punished with a fine of up to $250,000 — on top of other damages a complainant may be awarded.

Remember ‘Crazy Taxi’ Arcade Game?

So, I remember playing Crazy Taxi- in the mall arcade and in the theater arcade way back when and also on my Sega Genesis, -I think. Anyway, I’m obsessed right now with all the news and newest goodies from Google, Android, etc.. and I have always loved finding time to bring some nostalgia into my life – whichever form that may be. Those two together have just made a little portion of Mr. Famous even more the happy. If you didn’t know, Crazy Taxi has been available in the Google Play Store for awhile but it was like $4.99, -and screw that. But for the next few days, until 3/19/2014, the word ‘Free’ has been added to the game’s title. Why would they kick the price?

Well, first just hurry and grab the now-free Crazy Taxi from the Play Store, and I would suggest downloading and using an app backup utility (App Backup & Restore) so you will have a copy for future android devices and installs after the 100% off sale ends, and second, here’s why they kicked the price for a few days.. !!! 🙂

“Sega’s using this sale to draw attention to an upcoming entry in the franchise, Crazy Taxi: City Rush. That free-to-play title will introduce modern visuals, but it will also come with less desirable innovations, such as social network integration and in-game currency.” –[androidpolice.com]

It’s a very small gesture, but it reminds us.. I’m sure other people can say the same thing; I can remember exactly what i was doing and where I was when the news coverage first started unfolding the attacks. – We watched it all first period in high school while in my driver’s education class.

Easy PC Updates (security) #1

Check if you have the newest version of Java.

What is Java? It’s not fancy coffee ;] – But an engine which runs certain scripts on web pages that use them. Kinda more advanced things on some pages and sites use Java.

Check if you are running the newest version and after – check if your PC has any old versions hanging installed; both of these things can help with the security and functionality of your PC.

There is a Help page that can answer questions for you on the official Java website. (http://java.com/en/)
