Every year in June, a brave group of daredevils in the city of Alesund, Norway stack up hundreds of wood pallets to a height of over 130 feet, which they then light on fire in celebration of Midsummer and John the Baptist’s birthday.

Norway: where they build monuments and burn them because metal.

There’s more at stake in the viability of “cisgender” than mere words. “Cisgender” suggests a commonality among transgender and non-transgender people, at a time when transgender people are struggling for recognition. It tells us that we all experience some kind of relationship between our bodies and our selves, whatever that relationship may be. And it reminds us that those who experience a “match” between their body and their selves have it a lot easier in our society than those who do not. To the extent that “cisgender” helps raise awareness of intolerance and injustice towards transgender people, it serves a crucial political purpose right now. Potentially, “cisgender” could help build consensus on transgender rights.

Let’s talk about Prudencia Ayala.

Prudencia Ayala was a woman born in 1885 to a native family in a small town in El Salvador, Central America.

She started going to school at age 10, but had to left her studies because her family was too poor to sustain her, so she became a seamstress. She was an autodidact, and taught herself to read politics and economics, until she developed an opinion. Since 1913 she began publishing articles on feminism and anti-imperialism. She was opposed the dictatorships in Latin America, the North American interventions, and proclaimed the necessity of Central America to join into a federal Republic. 

She tried to be a presidential candidate in 1930, even though women couldn’t vote in El Salvador by then. Her government plan included many feminist points, a law to support syndicates, and the legal recognition of illegitimate children. She entered an intellectual and legal fight to be allowed to be a candidate but the Supreme Court resolved against her.

Prudencia retired from politics after that, and until her death, six years later, she worked closely with workers groups and social movements.

Women couldn’t vote in El Salvador until 1950.

Remembering Hispanic/Latino Victims of Murder/Police Brutality In America
Mark Salazar, 22 (Oklahoma): Killed on August 25, 2014 By Oklahoma City Sergeant Ryan Stark, Who Murdered Salazar After He Allegedly Killed Stark’s K-9 Agent, Kye, Who Police Gave A Full-Honor Funeral, While The Town Celebrated The Hispanic Man’s Death
OKLAHOMA CITY – A case that grabbed the attention of Oklahomans across the state is now back in the spotlight.
On Aug. 25, Sgt. Ryan Stark and Stark’s K-9 police dog, Kye, were involved in a high-speed chase.
Authorities say 22-year-old Mark Salazar led officers on a chase through Moore, Norman and ended along I-35 in Goldsby.
After crashing his car, officers say Salazar tried to run away but was caught by Kye.
At that point, police say Salazar repeatedly stabbed Kye before Sgt. Stark arrived.
“The canine officer made his way to the suspect’s location to pull the canine off the suspect and noticed the suspect armed with a knife and had been actively stabbing the canine,” said Capt. Dexter Nelson, with the Oklahoma City Police Department.
That’s when Stark opened fire and killed Salazar.
The next day, the K-9 officer died as a result of the stabbing.
Now, the case is back in the spotlight with the release of the autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Oklahoma.
According to the report, Salazar was shot six times, four of those in the back.
Salazar’s death was ruled a homicide by the medical examiner, which means another human caused his death.
The McClain County District Attorney will determine if the manner of death was criminal in nature.

The Salazar family attorney believes the shooting was not justified.
“He’s not a punk. He’s not a thug. He doesn’t have some extensive criminal background. Yes, he has a job.” said Noble McIntyre, the Salazar family’s attorney.
According to McIntyre, there are a number of things the police department got wrong the night Salazar was killed.
He says Salazar was suspected of stealing a car.
However, McIntyre says the car belonged to Salazar.
After the incident, police said Salazar was stabbing the dog when he was shot.
“We know the officer was in close proximity to the suspect when the suspect was stabbing the dog, which places the officer in great danger of the suspect,” said Capt. Nelson on Aug. 25.
The medical examiner’s report told a different story.
According to the report, the medical examiner investigator wrote the suspect was running away, an initial determination allegedly formulated when the investigator was out at the scene.
“Mark had been shot in the back multiple times from a distance. Not while he was on the ground wrestling with a dog, but as he was attempting to flee,” McIntyre said. “There was a larger concern about the dog than there was about the human life.”
In a surprising twist, the medical examiner’s office changed its mind on the idea that Salazar was running away.
In an email to the chief of police, the medical examiner said, “The gunshot wounds on the back of this deceased individual all have a clearly steep angle, downward trajectory and are highly unlikely to have been discharged while this man was running away from a person who was shooting.”
The police chief is expecting a change to the autopsy report and feels it is justified.
