We sat down with Shane Paul O’Doherty, a former IRA bomber turned pacifist, and asked him about his life. Here’s what he told us…
8 Terrifying Life Lessons From a Former Terrorist

#8. It Starts in Childhood
"I grew up in a well-off middle class neighborhood, a mix of Protestant and Catholic kids. The first time I realized I was ‘inferior’ is when a Protestant friend told me, ‘My mother said you’re a Roman Catholic, and that means you’re gonna burn in hellfire forever.’ And I asked my mom why we were going to burn in hell. I was only 5 or 6, but I already knew we were second-class citizens in our own country." … Shane was 14 when the first British soldiers occupied his neighborhood. At that age, we were playing GoldenEye and sad games of Spin the Bottle (alone, with a picture of Tiffani Amber Thiessen) for fun. Shane was throwing rocks at soldiers with machine guns and body armor.

How do we terraform Venus?
It might be possible to terraform Venus some day, when our technology gets good enough. The challenges for Venus are totally different than for Mars. How will we need to fix Venus?
This planet has been the center of corny nerd fantasies and awful behavioral gender oversimplifications from days of yore.
There are many real reasons to admire Venus from afar, but my favorite, much like Mars, is the potential to turn it into a vacation spot and haven for mad science planetary engineering. Venus is a virtual twin of Earth. It has a solid surface and very similar gravity to Earth.

Flying Solo: This 92-Year-Old Transgender Widow Is Fighting To Be Treated Like Any Other Widow

After serving as a pilot during WWII, Robina Asti transitioned to living as a woman in the 1970s.



youtube.com


Now 92 years old, she fondly remembers spending time over the Pacific during World War II. She was only 21 at the time.
Getting her pilot’s license at just 18, Robina became a commercial pilot and flight instructor.




youtube.com


In 1976, she decided to begin living as a woman “in body, soul, and mind.” The prejudice against her at that time was extraordinary.







Working as a vice president of a mutual fund, she would go to work in men’s clothing and then change in the evenings.
“It was quite burdensome, and I knew it would never be accepted then. So I quit and decided I had to live and work as a woman.”



youtube.com


She legally changed the sex on her pilot’s license, her driver’s license, and obtained a U.S. passport as a woman. For Robina, it was a complete rebirth.



youtube.com


She soon met Norwood Patton, the man who would one day become her husband.






When things became serious, Robina knew she would have to tell Norwood about her transition.






Less than a week later, Norwood came back.

youtube.com


Every month, Norwood would ask for her hand in marriage. Every month, she would refuse.



youtube.com


Finally in 2004, Robina married her longtime sweetheart in a small ceremony in an airplane hangar in Orange County, N.Y.
“It was, without a doubt, the finest time in my life.”



youtube.com


Eight years later, Norwood passed away at the age of 97.



youtube.com


After his passing, Robina applied for survivor benefits with the SSA. She was denied after it was determined she was “legally male” at the time of their marriage — despite all the legal documents she had in her possession.



youtube.com


“I am so insulted that the Social Security Administration refused to recognize me as a woman and treated my marriage to Norwood in such a disrespectful way.”



youtube.com


In June 2013, Lambda Legal filed a request for reconsideration on Robina’s behalf. After more than six months, there is still no word from the Social Security Administration.







She hopes that her case is a success, not for the money, but for “the act of humanity which is necessary here.”






Lambda Legal created this video to share Robina’s story:
