Remembering fellow Mississinewa HS Class of 2001 Aron Wilson

It is my sad duty as the webmaster of this website I launched 18 years ago at as a junior at Mississinewa High School. When I launched what is now AvaZinn.com as a my duty to inform, entertain my fellow Ole Miss grads on November 1, 1999, I had a mission as a first as a journalist to report the news. Today, as I had just finished an obligation to a commitment, news comes from Gas City about my fellow Class of 2001 alumnus Aron Wilson. Were that is wasn’t.

(Sergeant) Aron Wilson, a Mississinewa High School Class of 2001 graduate, passed away at the age of 34, according to his family. He was a month shy of his 35th birthday

My memories of Aron were if they serve me right, was on the football and basketball teams while at Mississinewa High School as well as having the best car (photo posted here) with Kimberly (Ott).

As a fellow MHS 2001 graduate, Wilson (if memory serves me right) brought the excitement of Mississinewa Football and Basketball into my life and I do occasionally wear the Mississinewa attire when appropriate or when I make a bike trip to Gas City (something I’ve done over the years since I’ve graduated with Aron). Wilson left an indelible mark on Mississinewa sports history as during the Homecoming Game (if I recall) senior year of high school was then- the first Homecoming win in 6 years beating Elwood (if I remember correctly).

“I’m awfully saddened to hear about the death of Aron Wilson,” said my daughter, Samantha. “I grew up with him and my dad (yours truly) as a member of the Ole Miss football and basketball team and of course my dad anchoring “RAT TV.”  Although I never did meet Aron in person, I remember my dad talking about the professionalism and class Aron brought. The Mississinewa High School Class of 2001 and Gas City has lost a true icon. All of our best to his family and friends in this difficult time.”

A graduate of Mississinewa High School in Gas City, he entered the the United States Air Force and served in tours in Aghanastan and Iraq.

He is survived by his wife, Tara, a sister, two sons and their families. Additional survivors include his parents, many aunts, uncles, cousins.

Private and a celebration of life services for Aron are planned for November 11, 2017 at Needham-Storey-Wapner Funeral Chapel in Gas City.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Aron’s children. An account has been set up for them at any Chase Bank.

As for yours truly, I decided not to attend either the visitation or funeral due to a previous commitment. What I will do instead is send a condolence card to Tara Wilson as many of my fellow Ole Miss Class of 2001 alums will be there.

Ava Zinn Statement on the passing of Sgt. Aron Wilson

I, Ava Zinn, am saddened to learn about the passing of my fellow Mississinewa High School Class of 2001 alumnus, Sergeant Aron Wilson.

Aron brought Mississinewa High School Sports into the lives of my daughters (Samantha, Tiffani, and Tabitha) and my family’s lives, especially with my memory of Aron on the basketball and football teams. I still remember during the senior year with Aron that Ole Miss won its Homecoming game for what was at the time its first win in six years.

My thoughts and prayers are with Tara and Aron’s children. Although I will not be able to attend Aron’s visitation or funeral due to a previous commitment, posting my condolences is the best option.

Pride Month: Standing Up To A Dress Code after 25 Years

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

FORT WAYNE and MARION, IN – Like any other woman, she often worries about her hair, her weight, her makeup, anything that impacting her femininity, or in my case even my bra size. Transgender women like myself are no different than any other woman but with several exceptions: bigger bone structure (most fixed by facial feminisation surgery), the dreaded beard shadow (effectively fixed with M2F hormones and electrolysis), and the fact this transgender woman has to keep her existing male reproductive organs for the time being. The reason for this woman is strictly for reproductive purposes as she still wants to have biological children and doing so as two women having sexual intercourse (obviously with my consent and the woman’s consent as well as being either in a long term relationship in addition of the woman’s benefit of automatically being a sex partner – a dating and relationship rule I’ve had since 1993) in order to conceive (only notable difference has to be the fact instead of a strap-on is the embarrassing imperfection as a woman has to be my enlarged clitoris and the second the erected enlarged clitoris is inserted into the woman’s vagina, conception occurs).

When I began my gender transition on December 1, 2004, I had a feeling that if I had rushed my transition, it will not only damage my family’s core beliefs (or even my core beliefs and values), lose a significant number of friends (there are some who I even went to high school with that I’m likely not going to be or even on good terms with) and I’ve responded by kicking them out of Facebook – I’ve banned and blocked as few as three and as many as 75 because they didn’t follow my rules such as addressing me as “Ava”, using male pronouns, or even not showing me the respect I’ve been entitled to or the other party unfriended me because I recently admitted to being a bully for 15 years after being bullied for over 25 years (there are times when bullying is a necessary tactic in order to get the truth uncovered and most of the time it is justified, effectively “bullying the bully” method). That is why a few years ago, I decided to implement the 2-5-10-BANNED FOR LIFE RULE to crack down on transphobia (it’s a very similar structure to Florida’s 10-20-LIFE Law) and to maintain perfection well as continuing many traditions and beliefs long before I began my gender transition.

Not to mention when I started transitioning my name (Frank to Ava), gender identity (male to female), and sexual orientation (straight male to gay female) may have changed as well as my appearance as a woman since I came out as not only as a transgender woman but subsequently as a woman identifying as a lesbian. There is always a feeling I get every time I step in front of a mirror or even looking at the damage male puberty did to me some 25+ years ago would do some damage eventually would effectively come back to haunt me.

Also not to mention, if viewers don’t like the way I am now living as a woman , my makeup, my weight or my outfit, they will make sure to let me know. And so far I’ve definitely have seen mostly negative comments that have caused me to stand up for what I believe in and defending my decision to transition from a man to a woman and responding the way I responded.

I found myself spending hours upon hours to make sure my overall appearance as a woman and image was perfect before I went out in public. Maintaining my appearance as a woman and hiding the dreadful male features I am cursed with may have been more exhausting than weightlifting or carrying a 50 pound bag of bird feeder. The experience shed light on how preoccupied I am with the details of my overall appearance, which made me realise after resuming counselling sessions after a 15 year a scene was the right decision after going through three rapes/sexual assaults.

LGBT Pride Month (June) 2017 is now in full swing. It’s hot. It is sticky. It’s a time of year when a woman or a transwoman’s appearance are a greater hassle than usual because of the humidity. Nonetheless, the battle to tame the dreaded male features (unfortunately) continues and no way of resolving them unless I pay extra money (something I don’t have) and the reason I auctioned off my virginity to Kymberly in July 2014 and still her $100,000 payment to deflower me wasn’t even enough. Kymberly finally admitted to me she had gambled it all away in Las Vegas in March 2017 and heard from one of my sources that Kymberly placed a $50,000 bounty on someone she held long standing grudge against, and that made me realise that I decided that I cannot marry Kymberly. What this means is the long-term relationship with Ava Zinn and Kymberly Alvaraz is ending in legal action.

Flashback to 1991 to 2001

I started questioning my gender identity and sexual orientation – unusual for someone eight years of age – while I was serving time at the since closed Silvercrest Children’s Developmental Center in New Albany until being released in December 1992. That was when I realised my childhood was already coming to an end and I knew I was already just too young to be a dad at 10 years of age. I remember I was about to use the restroom and saw something many see is quite frankly some will say made me retarded. I saw a girl (besides my mom) using the restroom and that made me realised I really was different, in addition to watching “The Little Mermaid” and I remember having some unusual crush but nowhere near as Mary Kay Letourneau. It was on the car ride from New Albany to Van Buren with my mom and brother, how fortunate I was and didn’t realise it at that time until I reconnected with someone on Facebook and did my best to stay in touch after leaving Silvercrest.
In middle school I had been picked on and bullied by that time it was for two years after being released from Silvercrest in New Albany. I wasn’t strong enough not because I have Autism. I had began to make an attempt to become a female thinking ‘I’d trade my male parts for female parts’ and have the same characteristics just like any other girl after I heard the term “sex change” in 1995.
Unfortunately, everyone I went to school with knows why I broke a classroom window on April 18, 1996, at least that was what they thought from their standpoint. Years later, and I recently admitted to bullying.

When I launched my web site in 1999 as a junior at Mississinewa High School, there seemed to be a standard of some sort. It was also when I launched the original INNewsCenter, and knew who I wanted to become after some needed TLC from the right resources and people I can know and trust, or so I had thought.

Several years after graduating from Mississinewa High School, there seemed to be a no standard or structure when I sat foot at Indiana Wesleyan University as a college freshman and literally had no structure as construction was going on that basically affected my performance academically. There were several theories why I simply was not emotionally ready for college and when I began the gender transition, I knew there was going to be a fourth and fifth requirement that Jennie Conrad did even mention on the infamous dis-enrollment letter I received on September 27, 2001. I knew there was (1) finding another college to attend to transfer credits to IWU, (2) have psychological and psychiatric clearance (but unfortunately not as a full-time student nor as a male), and (3) a signed release if I recall to even apply for readmission. It’s safe to say now it’s just only a matter of finding the right college, getting the right number of credits and the right tools and necessities needed to finally close the IWU Cold Case.

Being more successful emotionally as a woman and still a father.

I do know that after transitioning and after my eldest daughter, Samantha, graduated from high school and IWU, I knew as the father of Samantha Zinn, I knew I had done a lot better job with raising Samantha; a transgender daughter, Tiffani; a third daughter, Tabitha; and two adopted daughters, Ashli and Kylee. After Samantha graduated high school five years ago she decided to attend college in the fall of 2013 and she didn’t want to make the same mistakes I did. Sure enough, in the Spring of 2016, Samantha earned her Associates Degree in Communications and followed in my footsteps and my former father-in-law (aka Samantha’s maternal grandfather) beforehand. Though there were times when raising Samantha, Tiffani (then Timothy), Tabitha, and currently with my now only son Kenneth as well as Ashli and Kylee, I had to frequently found myself in a number of parenting and day care situations I knew it was the right parenting call as most of them were very bad situations that could have necessitated Child Protective Services. My mom, the late Laura Bakula, my aunt-in-law Sheena were a great babysitter to Samantha, Tiffani, Ashli, and Tabitha long before “Vote for the Girls” launched. I also knew I had done a far better job as a father and as a woman than my mom did when she raised myself and my late brother, most of the parenting and discipline skills my mom used with me and my skills with my children differs from my mom’s methods. One in particular was the “no TV punishment,” but often most of the “Vote for the Girls Punishment for Failure” when a female contestant doesn’t win were also used on my children in the form of the “punishment fitting the crime” or “a justified sanction”. In fact, recently I Googled ‘female fathers of children’ and it seems as though a woman fathering children are nearly as uncommon as same sex marriage.
There is a subtle or possible no-so-subtle message that the specific type of parenting of a child is the fact that the child always has a mother and father regardless and the terms “transgender mother” and “transgendered father” are useless. After I came out to my children and recently with Tabitha, I told them “I will always be your father you can still address me as ‘Dad’.” It was something I had in mind and realized that a gender transition is very similar to a television station changing its network affiliation.

With that in mind, in addition to already existing “Vote for the Girls” franchise and several other cultural references to Lauren Brill, Brandi Chastain, and two-woman anchor teams becoming the norm, as well as basically creating the “Producers Have A Choice, Viewers Don’t” philosophy ten years ago when what is now known as INNCD 47 Action News launched (two women co-anchor news, a female meteorologist, and a female sports director). After I first watched a South Bend late newscast with Cindy Ward and Deborah Daniels at the anchor desk 15 years ago, I knew and remembered and had that flashback that first time I ever had lesbian sex.

Flashback to Spring and Summer 2002

It was that particular moment when I had “lesbian sex” with my first wife Angie, she was being impregnated by me (for the last time living as a male before coming out as a transgender woman the following year) and Angie being pregnant with my daughter Tabitha. It was also around Father’s Day of 2002 and a month after my mom died from liver and kidney failure. At the time, I had recently healed from an injury I sustained after I had attempted to arrest my own brother for kidnapping my then-2 year old son Timothy (now daughter Tiffani). It was also around that time I had also just experienced the first time in my life I’d ever been raped. I knew I had failed as male and tried my best to mask the emotional pain and never even told anyone nor did I even realized it until my brother drowned at Pine Lake.

Today/June 2017

There seems to be a subtle or maybe not-so-subtle message that looking modest means everyone looking exactly the same. So recently as part of pride month as well as a “Vote for the Girls” Punishment for Failure–Normani Kordei finished third place on Dancing with the Stars and despite the Moderators’ Save being used to decline Lauren Duski’s second place finish–based from what I had seen during not only those two competitions but also took the deaths of Holly Everman, Perri Johnson, and other factors, I had to overturn the Moderators’ Save and decided that there was not going to be a winning moderator. The pink, purple, blue, and red teams all were declared losers and face the most demeaning and diabolical punishments in “Vote for the Girls” history.

The transmen on the red team (as well as Devin on the blue team) have to go out in public in nothing but a breast binders while the transwomen on the purple team (including myself, as well as Kendra, Hillary, and Maci on the pink team as well as Bria Savage on the blue team and Lydia Delagatto on the red team) go out in public in only a bra and pants/skirt for not just Pride Month (June) 2017, but also July and August as well as the America’s Got Talent 12 and So You Think You Can Dance 14 competitions and just let biology do its work.

To my surprise, amazement, and most importantly self-acceptance as well as self-worth (I only did it on three occasions on the Vote for the Girls set), I actually kind of like being outside in just a bra and pants or skirt. The outfit match my gender identity as a woman, sexual orientation as a lesbian and overall appearance as a woman, yet could use some feminization. I waited until it was the right time to do so and many of you are probably thinking ‘THIS IS WAR!’ It may be necessarily something I want to do for the month of June but additionally when I’m in the mood or feeling intimate or looking at a biological female I’m interested in.

Despite my decision to go out in what some of you say is inappropriate and in bad taste, I was still nervous about it. The first time I was in a bra but with no shirt was on May 12, 2011 when Ryan Seacrest announced that Lauren Alaina and Haley Reinhardt were in the American Idol 10 Top 3 and the term “pull a Brandi Chastain” became well known. That’s because I think transwomen and women in our society and most certainly women and transwomen are scrutinized for too long. Every bit of the appearance of a woman and/or transwoman is picked apart.

While I was a bit self conscious, I had grabbed a shirt just in case should the “No Shirt. No Shoes. No Service” card come into play as this was constantly on my mind the whole time and trying to calm down chafing as I have yet to begin hormone therapy, I did my job as a transgender woman. In the process I realized the photos I posted on Social media should and—I hope do or will inspire more transwomen or even transmen binding his chest—speak louder to my professionalism as a webmaster than the way I look.

I’m just a woman: Officially a Transgender Woman since December 1, 2004. That’s not going to change.

I’m just a lesbian like any other woman who identifies as such: I was attracted to women as a male, and still find women attractive. But if the woman’s currently straight and is in a relationship with me and one benefit of the relationship is obviously having her as my sex partner (a rule I’ve had since 1993)… She will have to come out as a bisexual sooner or later. No ifs and or buts about it.

My gender identity and sexual orientation as a woman reflects the values and the family history I’ve always had long before the gender switch from man to woman and my work reflects my ability. The name, gender identity, and sexual orientation may change when transitioning from one sex to another, but everything else does not change, such as who you were before the transition, your personality, your lifestyle, your friends and family, etc.

Not even the DNA or chromosomes change with the gender transition: males and transfemales always have and always will have the dreaded Y chromosome and WILL ALWAYS BE A FATHER while females and transmales will ALWAYS BE A MOTHER.

Finally I can say I’m proud of my accomplishments as a woman despite the imperfections that were given to me such as the Y chromosome, the beard shadow (mostly unseen in photos if they aren’t covered or retouched), the flat chest (or my size 38AA cup) , the enlarged clitoris (this is what goes into the woman’s vagina to make children – the dreaded P-E-N-I-S), the big lumps between my legs (the male reproductive organs that produce sperm that go into the woman’s vagina). I can also say that once I am finally done having children and the timing is right then I can start the orchidectomy and begin estrogen and progesterone therapy for the remainder of my life, and help me get across the message that, like so many other transgendered men and women, not afraid to be different. Rather, I’m excited to embrace the truth of what a gender transition should look like in my view with all of the benefits and options available while they’re still intact before any genital reassignment surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding April 2015 Rape in Marion, IN

UPDATED: June 30, 2017

 

Here are some frequently asked questions about the April 22, 2015 sexual assault rape that you may have.

Where did the sexual assault occur?
The sexual assault occurred in Marion, Indiana. Complete details are from Ava Zinn’s recollections from April 22, 2015.

Who did this sexual assault to Ava on April 22, 2015?
The suspect is described as an African American or bi-racial (mixed African American and Caucasian) female standing no taller than 5 feet 8 inches (173 centimeters, same height as Ava herself), weighing no more than 150 pounds (68 kilograms, the same weight as Ava at the time), had a blue arrow piercing on her left eyebrow, wore a blue hoodie, dark blue jeans, tan boots, had a blue backpack and took a photo of my “enlarged clitoris” and spoke to someone named Alicia on a mobile telephone with a pink cover.

UPDATE: On June 26, 2017, Ava received a lead from her daughter Samantha with a possible suspect going by the name of Quita.

Was this reported to police?
Yes, Ava Zinn did report the incident to Marion, Indiana Police nearly three hours after the rape occurred. It was reported as a female-on-male rape while Ava was being treated and DNA evidence was being collected.

Why was this reported as a female-on-male rape and not a female-on-female rape on April 22, 2015?
Despite the fact Ava Zinn is a transgender female, the rape was reported as a female on male rape due to the suspect being a female and the victim Ava Zinn, as a woman, is a biological male, and a well-established dating and relationship policy states that all of Ava Zinn’s past and present significant others (Amanda Davidson, Elisa Everman, Angie Willis, Christy Johnson, and Kymberly Alvaraz) are automatically sex partners of Ava Zinn, regardless.

Has anyone pressed charges?
Yes, Ava Zinn herself has pressed charges. However, Ava has set up a defense fund in the event should the suspect press charges.

Is this Ava’s first rape/sexual assault?
The 2015 incident isn’t the first rape. This was Ava’s third time being raped both as a male and as a female. The first rape was a male-on-male rape in 2002 that was unreported and wouldn’t make any difference as the statues of limitations passed in 2007. The second occurred while in Indianapolis in June 2010 and was reported as a male-on-transgender female rape/sexual assault and the statues of limitations expired in 2015.

Why did this rape happen to Ava?
This rape happened because Ava Zinn had successfully auctioned off her virginity (in addition to a long-term relationship) to Kymberly Alvaraz in 2014. Kymberly Alvaraz, became the sixth significant other (and the fifth sex partner per relationship agreement) of Ava Zinn while at the same time, became the oldest significant other of Zinn (who is 16 years Alvaraz’s junior). She is also the first significant other (in an unprecedented demand) to pay Ava Zinn for a long-term relationship – a form of reverse compensation. That agreement was groundbreaking and notable, as Alvaraz became the first woman to pay a significant other for relationship rights. Ava Zinn accepted the deal, which was due to take effect in January 2015.
This is nothing new to transgender women as Ava, like many other transwomen, face a vast amount of discrimination, transphobia, and violence. Many of these cases like Ava’s found their incidents to be direct results of an anti-transgenderism bias (and the reason why Ava had to report the 2015 rape as a female on male rape).

How is Ava getting through her 2015 rape?
Obviously, the suspect’s arrest and conviction will be relief to Ava. Ava had been in counselling/therapy with Erin Davis from March 1, 2017 until June 26, 2017.
Since Ava’s rape, Ava has not used public transportation nor will set foot until her suspect is arrested and convicted. However, with Ava’s counselling/therapy session with Erin Davis being discontinued for the time being after only four counselling sessions, and a “surprise psychiatric evaluation” done by Dr. Arthur Kupersmith on June 1, 2017 with the result revealed on June 26, 2017, confirming an unrelated cold case.

Additionally, Ava posted on her YouTube channel about this.

New Details Regarding My April 2015 Rape…

Edited Version – An unedited version is available at the end of this post

On April 22, 2015, I became a victim of a female-on-male rape (and I had to report it as such even though my gender identity is female – I knew it was a sexual assault because I have a well-known and well-established dating and relationship policy of mine since 1993) and DNA evidence was collected for my rape kit. Since then I have been looking for the person who did this act and could have been pregnant as a result the female on male rape.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I did my own research to generate clues based on what I had available if the suspect in my rape did get pregnant (or was pregnant since the suspect also used verbal threat I took very seriously to get an abortion) and used an app of what the suspect looked liked without her hair down (I used an app called FlashFace Woman to get a sketch of the suspect’s description) and with her hair tied back (which is what she looked like), and if the rape suspect did in fact follow through on the abortion threat then it’s a murder and I posted on social media as well as this web site hoping to generate leads just like any other crime.

Like most people, I usually try to respect one’s privacy request as a former journalist and webmaster, but because I’m the victim of the female-on-male sexual assault, I had no choice to deny the request (in many cases, the names and faces are pixelated or blurred and this is no exception) and basically looked at every angle of what I had to work with (including potential suspects and in my rape case, because the suspect is a female and possibly the mother of the child that was conceived (my definition of conceiving a child is the second my “enlarged clitoris” went in the suspect’s vagina) possible baby photos I obtained from research at the hospital and looked at detailed information).

I had posted not only a sketch of the suspect (with her hair down and now with her hair tied back) via the FlashFace Woman app I used and had probable cause to post a baby photo of what I believed looked like me 34 years ago as a baby boy in February 2016 (from what three people I’ve consulted with saw that baby in question did not look bi-racial and I’m 70 percent sure I’m not the biological father though the nose and lips look very similar) hoping to get leads in order to solve the female on male rape I did report to police in Marion on April 22, 2015.

From the summer of 2015 until April 2017, the case likely went cold and no one came forward with information.

On the morning of Saturday, May 6, 2017, I had learned that the one of the individuals that messaged me via my personal Facebook profile that came to a shock not even 24 hours after I had found a little girl lost at Meijer #153 in Marion.

My heart is pained as this is sadly another case of mistaken identity (probably the biggest case since the mixup of Laura VanRyn and Whitney Cerack in 2006) of my rape suspect. I have learned the suspect not a black woman yet sounds like one, but is instead a bi-racial or mixed race (Mixture of Caucasian and African American) I had misidentified when I reported the female on male rape on April 22, 2015 and very uncanny the resemblance between the person who messaged me and my rape suspect. The body types are somewhat similar, the hair color and texture are similar, etc.

Over the past few days after the initial contact, Kymberly and I reviewed the three Facebook messages I received (see below and the names and photos are pixelated) from the woman’s family–even Kymberly saw and two other Facebook messages that basically were threatening in nature–that met only 30 percent of my threshold of those threats being reported to police in Marion (pending 100 percent positive identification). Unfortunately, two of those threatening Facebook messages I received did meet the threshold of possibly having to take legal action and/or the person likely pay me a fine (I’m going to congratulations for being the first to be sanctioned by yours truly, Ava Zinn, under the 2-5-10-BANNED FOR LIFE).

Although the April 22, 2015 rape occurred after I got off the Marion city bus and was reported to Marion police that afternoon, it should have also been reported to the Transportation Department and was too scared to do so within a time frame. It was finally reported to the Transportation Department on the late morning of May 15, 2017 since I had the confidence to do such. I had asked to obtain surveillance from the CVS pharmacy, a few weeks after my rape but the request was denied because I did not work for the Marion Police Department.

Later on the afternoon of May 15, 2017, I began making the process of making a positive identification. When I went to Lowe’s in Marion, I overheard a conversation (though I’m clearly 60 percent certain) it was my rape case. On the bicycle ride to my bank after leaving The Vapor Mill, I realized and knew (based on hair and remember) without any doubt, that it was unfortunately not my suspect after looking briefly and didn’t even get any DNA sample (obtaining the sample by trickery and my instinct told me not to obtain it). Had I obtained the DNA sample, I could have easily been arrested and could have turned bad. It could’ve easily turned into yours truly accused of stalking and another crime (theft if my memory serves me correctly). I know this because for most of my life while living as a male, I had been falsely accused of such in the past (most of them during junior high and middle school and at that point I was like ‘I am going fail’ since most of the males in my my family on my mother’s side are either criminals or sex offenders, something of which I am not but it could have been on one fateful prom night) and ever since I came out as a transgender woman (and subsequent sexual orientation from as a male, heterosexual or straight, to primarily homosexual or lesbian as a woman) my gender transition to female (and living full time) have become more successful socially, emotionally, and psychologically.

Unfortunately the rape of mine remains unsolved and as always, I will find out and will continue to keep searching with every available resource I have as well as with cooperation with Marion Police since I KNOW and even went to school with Marion Police Captain Amber Richards and fellow MPD office Drew Tittle.

The fact of the mater is, I’m seeking justice and answers on the woman who raped me and if the suspect did in fact get pregnant after raping me on April 22, 2015 and no father is listed on the child’s birth certificate, there would be a possible suspect in my rape case. At that point, like my 2010 rape case in Indianapolis, I will press charges for the suspect to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

It is not my intent to invade someone privacy or post something without one’s written consent. In this case I had a good probable cause to do so since it was a female on male rape investigation that I am conducting and hoping to get a lead (by obtaining a DNA samples of possible suspects and ask for someone’s ID to obtain some information to submit to police in Marion) to finally get justice and move on with my life.

For yours truly, it is frustrating to know that this suspect is still out there walking the streets while I’m still struggling (emotionally, financially, and psychologically) to to absorb this new development. I have sat up the Ava Zinn Sexual Assault Defense Fund that would come in handy if, for some unforeseen reason, the rape suspect decide to press charges at the time and that is one possibility – one I will be fighting tooth and nail until I win.

If my actions have caused more LGBT (especially the transgendered men and women) that want to have biological children (and this is what has kept yours truly from completing my gender transition) BEFORE a transwoman’s first Estrogen and Anti-Androgen or a transman’s first testosterone shot at an endocrinologist’s office, I may have helped more transgendered men and women (F2M and M2F) rethink their gender transition options because this is ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS one of the things to consider.

Ava Zinn Apologizes For VFTGUSA Airing Shocking DWTS Elimination Live: ‘We Really Messed Up’

MARION and FORT WAYNE, IN (AZH) – A shaken up yours truly, apologized to Vote for the Girls viewers after one of my producers now facing disciplinary action failed to cut away from live video of perhaps one of the most shocking eliminations that likely will knock Pia Toscano’s elimination down to number two and perhaps one of the most shocking in Dancing with the Stars history. This time, the elimination was fatal as a moderator died on my watch — worst of all it was my BFF’s domestic partner, Perri.

Throughout the DWTS 24 Week 6 Result, my Vote for the Girls staff cut to and from the live DWTS 24 program. I had mentioned the phrase “On ‘Dancing with the Stars’ there are no Vote for the Worst picks. All moderators’ picks are good.” I narrated the results, until suddenly, viewers saw Nancy Kerrigan and Heather Morris in the bottom two as Normani (Kordei) and Simone (Biles) were already saved by votes from the American public. We were projecting that Nancy to be eliminated on April 24, and the second Tom Burgeron announced “after a perfect score,” the screen cut to black and I yelled at the control room, “Get off it. Get off it. Get off it!” followed by “GO TO COMMERCIAL!” but it was already too late.

When the program returned from commercial, yours truly, clearly distressed, explained what had happened:

While we had found out that Heather and Maks were eliminated and showing it to you live, we went on delay.

So, that’s why I didn’t talk for about 10 seconds. We created a five second delay as if you were to rewind your VCR or DVR five seconds, that’s what we did with the elimination we were showing you on DWTS 24. What you do not see on VFTG is that each and every moderator and villain have a monitor to see what is happening five seconds before you see it, so in the event should anything go horribly wrong, we would be able to cut away from it without subjecting you, the viewer, to that particular… (my fellow Purple team moderator Lanise White finished my sentence and said objectionable content) objectionable content that unfit for YouTube (or TV)

It doesn’t happen very often and we can honestly say we messed up. And we’re all very sorry. That elimination didn’t belong on YouTube. We took every precaution we knew how to take to keep you from seeing that particular elimination. And I sincerely apologize to you for allowing that to happen.

Sometimes we see a lot of eliminations that we don’t let get to you, because Vote for the Girls is mostly about female contestants and since Vote for the Girls is mostly a TV-14 program, it’s insensitive. And that particular elimination was wrong. And you have my personal confidence that won’t happen again on my watch. And I’m deeply, deeply sorry.

Ava Zinn launches “Vape Back! with Ava Zinn”

Yours truly (Ava Zinn) today announced the launch of an Indiana based YouTube channel dedicated to the vaping community that extends the portfolio of Aeverine Zinn Holdings (AZH) Internet Ventures.

It’s the debut week of Vape Back! with Ava Zinn. Ava Zinn is excited about the launch of the fifth internet venture from AZH joining AvaZinn.com, INNewsCenter, Vote for the Girls and Housing Hell.

Here’s the great news about Vape Back! – anyone residing in all of Indiana’s 92 counties can make suggestions of any vaping product for Ava to try (some restrictions do apply and must be approved by Ava herself) for a review.

“I’m pleased to confirm that I have made the decision to launch ‘Vape Back! with Ava Zinn,’ which is accretive to Aeverine Zinn Holdings and good for the State of Indiana as well as the LGBT community with whom I remain a strong partner as a transgendered woman,” said Zinn. “This transaction underscores our sharp focus on consistently improving the value of my Internet portfolio and on driving profitability for AZH.”

Today’s announcement takes place against the backdrop of a prior announcement of the subsidized housing smoking ban which Ava Zinn must comply by July 2018. Given this fact, Ava Zinn either had to smoke outside or get evicted. That particular decision would have meant a setback from which Ava Zinn will never recover from as she would be face homelessness since many communities in Indiana also have added e-cigarettes and vaping to existing smoking bans.

Today’s announcement does not impact AZH’s Vote for the Girls and INNewsCenter, yet does impact AvaZinn.com and Housing Hell.

We’re taking the conversation to YouTube across Marion, Muncie, and Kokomo during the summer of 2017. If you want to join the conversation and make a suggestion, email Ava Zinn at webmaster @ avazinn.com or go to the contact page.

Another Close Call… (3/8/17)

The last time I attempted to take my own life, Joe Keenan was filling out the remainder of Frank O’Bannon’s second term as Governor of Indiana, George W. Bush was President, and yours truly, Ava Zinn had lived her final days living as a biological male.

Fourteen years later, unlike last time, I did not need psychiatric treatment but I took some corrective action after realizing there was something I just could not live without — a bed I’ve had since 1994 called a Sealy Craftsmatic. I’ve had that particular bed specifically built for my mother and inherited the bed on May 11, 2002.

Wednesday, someone from one organization had the audacity and the nerve to come in my home and basically didn’t like the bed’s condition and I made it clear it was fine the way it is. I was not going let someone force me to take that bed to the dumpster for any reason even though I have NEVER had bedbugs.

That really sat off a traumatic experience and I was not going to let that happen. I knew whatever solution that someone offer will not work, and therefore an unacceptable resolution, yet praised at the improvements I’ve made. That should have been enough if someone just did not stick their nose where it didn’t belong.

Wednesday night, I had to make a choice because I spent most of the day with a back injury the individual caused when I was forced to take a perfectly good bed to the dumpster because I NEVER GONE WITHOUT AND NEVER WILL GO WITHOUT A BED FOR ANY F**KING REASON. It was either suicide or put my bed back together — it was obviously my bed that give me nearly 25 years of service and I don’t believe even for one minute a Craftmatic bed should ever be thrown out until the day of one’s death.

I am considering suing the organization for my back injury they caused and since the bed wasn’t in my home I couldn’t rest at all until I recovered the bed from the dumpster.

I’ve posted this in the Facebook Transgender Alliance group….

TW (M2F)? Came close to suicide on March 8, 2017….

but this transwoman went with her own gut instinct instead to retrieve something I just could not live without – a bed. A Sealy Craftsmatic I’ve had since 1994 and no plans of changing the mattress for any reason (the closest thing I’ve come up with has to be a DIY mattress).

Yesterday, someone came to my home and told me that I needed to replace my bed. Then I suffered a third back injury for the third time in 17 years, spending most of the day injured and traumatized (had been diagnosed with PTSD after going through three rapes).

Yet last night, I had to make a choice…

My death and the local newspaper’s headline as well as Indiana would have said “Vote for the Girls Founder and Webmaster Ava Zinn dead at 34”

… or…

Recover my bed and bring it back where it belongs. I obviously chose my bed, even though that same person made me throw out the bed (and I’VE NEVER HAD BEDBUGS and NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS) and I wasn’t going to let that happen and I was make sure I had one at all times 24/7 and then the second I went outside that little instinct of mine said “Get your bed out of the dumpster and restore it.”

I’m still alive obviously and the last time I’d encountered something like that was April 18, 1996. My friends know the story and I remember it like it was yesterday.
