Man/Woman Sues Women's Shelters For Discrimination

I wrote a story in this week’s Mercury about Lee/Lisa Iacuzzi, suing two women’s shelters for discrimination against bi-gendered people like him/her. The photo ran in black and white but I’m really proud of it so here it is in all its glory. Here he/she is, with his/her three-legged dog, Rowdy. Lee/Lisa is not a person interested in fitting in, and for that, I can’t help but admire him/her. Even if it is bloody hard work writing sentences where he/she is concerned.

    I have to ask why you are failed to mention Lee/Lisa Iacuzzi’s history of assaulting, and threatening people with violence? There are plenty of court cases, restraining orders, and police reports that verify this. She was even on Judge Judy for attacking someone.

    I am a guy who used to work with Lisa. 3 of my friends have been to court over her either stalking or assaulting them. Some of these guys have restraining orders against her and she has slashed tires on a few occasions before. One of the court cases was open and shut because my friend saved all the messages that Lisa had sent to him accusing him of crazy things and making threats.
    With one friend she showed up his house demanded weed, which he gave to her so she would go away. The friend was a pacifist that Lisa believed could he easily bullied. She showed up the next day and when he demanded that she leave she punched him in the face (this is the case that ended up on Judge Judy).
    My issue with Lisais that as one person put it she is a serial bully- she does not just pick fights with people- she picks fights with really nice and civiled people that she can push around. As you can probably tell at heart I am irrsopnsible and don’t really fall into that catagory. However I do know that Lisa’s beshavior will continue and that other peole will be picked on and terroized by her and that giving her favorable press will just add fuel to the fire.

    I should apoloigise for my rants against you on the blog- they where unfair cheap shots, but I reallydo beleive the biggest error was insinuating that poeple have been picking on Lisa. If there is someone who has a history of violence, vandalism, stalking, and mental illness there really are not that many peole lining up to get in her line of fire voluntairly.

    Evidentally she is good at playing the victim and getting the press on her side. My question still bacically why did you and the others who cover stories on her not mention her criminal history? And I do not mean bring up her jaywalking tickets. Since her court cases are public record I assume getting information on her criminal history should be easy. I assume that it just takes a search on a legal database (maybe I am wrong and this information is harder to get to than I thought).

    Joan Smoaks is an obsessed little boy known as Talbot Wallace who has gone to far. I knew your would bury yourself, it would just take time. I di not have a criminal record but Talbot was arrested for a DUI. Too bad that did not help your teaching liscense which ended you up at radio shack. Your writing is going to cost you your job that I got you. The Portland Hostel for all its volunteer board members is not going tolerate your open transphobia. I knew you could not help yourself. Onto Bradley Angle!

    Bradley Angle has not been sued yet, they are in the reconciliation process at BOLI. They have less than 40 days to change their policies or get sued. The Just Out article showed the level of experts who looked at the BOLI decision and know that it is correct. I knew the policy was discriminatory for the last two years but it took a long time to find the right place who would put an end to discriminatory policies.

    Matt, you can avoid writing he/she and just use Lee. I know it makes the writing bloody hard.

    Thanks

    Lee for the last and final time I am not T.W.- think about how many people know you from the hostel- more than you can count and none of them have any syampathy towards you. You where even on national TV, so I could be anyone of those people who knew you from the old days.

    T just wants to be left alone. Also T is a serious guy, so this really isn’t his style.

    In fact T.W. just demanded that I stop blogging you, so there will be no more postings from me (I know it was fun while it lasted). Also leave the hostel out of it- we all know you have no friends there and never will again.

    By the way I saw your E-Room fight last night on Division around closing time- Yes I was there.

    One cannot have a conversation the topic of gender without reading hate. Please type more hate, it only shows that your are boy, hater, etc.

    Again, not talking about gender with using violent language. The only way I cope with gender is to use nonviolence. This nonviolence message includes not humiliating people publicaly.

    This social condoned open hatred is socially condoned and continues to exist in Organizations. Yes, they have gender in their employment policies but have no idea nor even know anything about gender or gender laws.

    Reach CDC is a large organization with a large human resource department who Build a Better Community. Reach CDC was asked for information, Reach CDC was told about the discrimination, Reach CDC kept on discriminating against me and still has not stopped their behavior.

    This will not be condoned.

    Not a Good QUeer

    Please do not call me Lisa, calling me Lisa is transphobic. Not honoring a humans name only shows your derogatory and stigamtized behavior of hate.

    Matt, I think John makes an excellent point. Why didn’t you reference the rather extensive paper trail available via police records, county court records, and neighborhood association complaints? It’s certainly relevant and you ignored it entirely. Was it laziness on your part or did you feel that your readers should only be informed by Lee/Lisa and his/her lawyer? In either scenario, it’s just terrible journalism and doesn’t speak well of your professional ethics or integrity.

    Please answer the question, why did you ignore or fail to reference reams of public records when writing this story?

    I would like to thank Matt personally of trying to start another hate blog against Not a Good Queer. I want to let the readers know about the hate blog already written by the tenants of the Rose. It is here where the state found substanial evidence of gender discrimination.

    Did it ever make you think that people who try to get stalking orders on people are being used as a payback. Did you ever think that a city with such totting of public anger, behaves quietly behind close doors to smear people. People like me who are right, hold you accountable, and make you feel uncomfortable. People like me make you feel uncomfortable because the world you live in, is blind to hate and motivators of retaliation to those who speak out.

    This behavior is Portland, writing messages without signing ones name demonstrates the cities childhood obsessed behavior.

    Also, I have be given enough experience and go to the legislature and complain that stalking orders and restraining orders are being misused as retaliatory behavior versus really being a victim. I think the court should pentalize those who try to get a restraining order, stalking order, they can’t get it, because it is seen as the judges as bullshit, that it should be reomoved from ones record.

    I could go down to the court house on Monday and put on a stalking order against Joh Smoak, this would be on his record. Imagine, pissing off your friends, then they hate you as much as they loved you and they are freaked out about their own sexuality forget the understanding of ones gender which is so far removed from most brains.

    I am Mr. Potatoe head. Potatoe head best explains gender. You can dress it up, but it is still a potatoe. I can wear a dress, and maybe put on a bra, but I am still different. As a matter of fact, this was said to me once in college by a professor in a full classrom. He said that lesbians can wear skirts but every one knows thier lesbians because they are so uncomfortable in their skirts.

    I have to be nice to haters. Read Not a Good Queer on Google. Their is already a hate blog, but I guess know their is two hate blogs. I am flattered.

    See ya

    Hi Matt, still waiting for an answer. I’m really interested in knowing why you chose to ignore the ample evidence provided to you through public records.

    Lee, so in your imagination the stalking and restraining orders against you are purely retalitory measures from transphobic people? You’ve never threatened anyone? Harassed them at their place of work? Yelled slurs like “faggot” and “dyke” at people who oppose you (by the way, so classy coming from someone who claims to champion queer rights)? Slashed tires? “Borrowed” cars from differently abled people without returning them, save by force? Bullied and intimidated? Physically attacked others? And that’s just a short list of the allegations. All of these are lies? I don’t think so.

    Lee, you’re sick. You need help. Medicine. Therapy. Support. It’s got nothing to do with your gender, it’s got everything to do with untreated bi-polar disorder. Please stop using your transgender/bi-gendered status as a foil to carry out your petty revenge on people who disagree with you. It demeans the movement and discredits those who legitimately face discrimination because of their gender identification. Stop.

    To address Laura M about my lovely OJIN. Anyone can go down to the court house and file a stalking order or a restraining order against. They need no proof. On 9/12/07 four women from my building went down to the court house and filed orders, all accompained with a letter from Reach CDC. Lovely, ladies, it is too bad that you put the Antiviolence Act against women in jeopardy. Your actions are going to hurt these protections to people who really need the protections. Stlaking orders are completely retalliatory and if Laura M wants to give her address and her full name, I will have no problem filing a false stalking order to prove the rediculness of this unconstitutional act.

    Bradley Angle is discriminatory, they had thirty days with the state to change their policies they have not. This is now a war between the lesbian community and maleness in the gay community.

    This blog does not belong to Matt Davis, and it is a complete fraud.

    yeah, your all stupid!

    The civil matter with Reach CDC has been resolved. Bradley Angle House is in the State Civil Rights Division and will be formally charged this month. Bradley Angle House has not changed their discriminatory ways and it will take a judges order for civil rights to happen. It is obvious the gay community was shocked to hear a leader of sexual minorities in the city openly discriminates. They were never sued out of fear that it would never reach a jury.

    Secondly,I was able to supeona records from the Portland International Hostel where I received a gold pocket watch for saving the organization is next on my sue list. I would like to thank John Smaok, known as Talbot Wallace for the inspiration. Yes, I am wanting the real name of John Smoak but it is not necessary since he has made public statements on record that can be proven as a lie and will end his tenure at the Hostel. How stupid can people be and how long do you smear someone until you pay the price.

    if you’re reading this Lisa/Lee, I hope for a minute you’ll remember what you told me almost 10 years ago, to warn you if you told me you were feeling ‘oppressed’ because that you finally discovered your trigger, your descent in to madness. Well, I tried. And I tried some more. Then I had to let you go. You may consider yourself “Not a Good Queer” but I consider you an amazing person who has gotten so convinced of your oppression that you are destroying yourself and those who once loved you. I remember when you were the Mayor. Be well.
