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.

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.

There are some frequently asked questions that the public may have regarding the April 22, 2015 rape.

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.

This story is being updated on both AvaZinn.com and on Vote for the Girls USA and unfortunaltely a fatality did in fact occour as

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.

Remembering Heidi Mason

There’s no doubt that friends, family and fellow Ole Miss Class of 2000 alumni are remembering Heidi Mason.

From professors at Mississinewa High School to classmates and friends like myself to the moderator panel and villains on “Vote for the Girls”, the State of Indiana paused to remember the 35 year old I had a privilege of meeting for the first time back in the fall of 1995.

Heidi Mason died Friday at 35 years of age, after spending 22 years fighting Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), a very rare inherited connective tissue disorder. Her name trended AvaZinn.com and on Vote for the Girls with hastags such as #RIPHeidiMason on Facebook.

“I’m so sadden by the passing of Heidi…I have known her since grade school. And Even though our friendship was not the same since last year.. All the years before we made so many memories..I will miss her dearly.. I am so upset that we will never have the chance to get our friendship back to the way it used to be.. But I am glad that we had talked a few times in the last two months on Facebook. And I will always be thankful for all the time we did get to spend together.. And my heart goes out to her family. Especially to her mother and her two boys… And I pray they are able to find comfort and peace in this sad time,” wrote alumnus Rhamey Furnish.

Friends and former classmates that went to school with Heidi remembered her beyond the sacrifices she made — “People who didn’t like her had to respect her,” my close friend Holly Everman said.

In the Mississinewa Community Schools Special Education Alumni, she was a hero and a sweet girl, wrote one person on Facebook.

And on “Vote for the Girls USA” a 35 second tribute aired after the eliminations of supermodel Amber Rose and “The Brady Bunch” actress Maureen McCormick on “Dancing with the Stars”  (video below)

Three VFTG Victories for Ava Zinn and Kymberly Alvaraz, Makeup Competitions not wasted

IMG_0790.JPG

What’s better than a Vote for the Girls victory in America? Two victories: one male and one female on Vote for the Girls.

On American Idol XIV, Team Ava & Kymberly became the winning moderator as their pick of Nick Fradiani defeated Clark Beckham and Jax Cole even though it was, unfortunately an all-male final as Jax finished in third place and since the Moderator Panel of Zinn, Alvaraz, Holly Everman, Kellie Rock, Julia Passalt, Kendra Ray, Thia Tola, Tracia Ward and Lanise White all voted to pick Jax, the Moderators’ Save was used on Jax to decline the loss and effectively allowed Tracia Ward the dual winning moderator with Zinn & Alvaraz. This gave Zinn her 11th moderator victory and the first for both Alvaraz and Ward.

 

Then on The Voice 8 Final, as Koryn Hawthorne finished fourth and Joshua Davis finished third, that left Meghan Linsey and Sawyer Fredericks as the Top 2 and securing the DOUBLE VFTG Victory (instead of what would have been a Vote for the Girls loss had Fredericks not been a Vote for the Girls pick). However, since the web site decided to allow Sawyer Fredericks as a Vote for the Girls pick as well as Meghan Linsey, this necessitated the male and female victories….Sawyer’s win gave Thia Tola her first American VFTG Victory and her second overall after Maneepat Molloy won the first season of Thailand’s Got Talent (of which got imported onto the American version of Vote for the Girls following the cancellation of the Thai version of Vote for the Girls) and Linsey’s victory (as the female winner) also gave both Zinn and Alvaraz their respective 12th and second moderator victories.

And on the Dancing with the Stars 20 final, as Noah Galloway finished third, another Double VFTG victory occurred as Rumer Willis defeated Colorado-born Riker Lynch and giving Kendra Ray her very first Vote for the Girls victory in the United States and Lynch’s runner-up finish also gave the male VFTG Victory, securing the 13th and third moderator victories for Zinn and Alvaraz, respectively.

It may not make sense, but after research of the voting habits, the time finally came after we became successful with Nick Fradiani and Jax Cole on American Idol, the web site announced some very big changes for the web site’s seventh season in which a male soloist (known as a FLEX pick) can be allowed as a VFTG pick in addition to the existing VFTG picks (male-female duos, predominately girl groups, and of course, female soloists).

As for any make-up competitions, Ava has decided to give the entire moderator panel the summer off and as a result of the male and female victories on American Idol 14, The Voice 8, and Dancing with the Stars 20 as well as the victory on Dancing with the Stars 19, none of the moderators face any punishment for failure (such as the Leg Beards for Breast Cancer and No Shave November) nor participate in the America’s Got Talent 10 nor So You Think You Can Dance 12 competitions.

Just because the main moderator panel on VFTG were given the makeup competitions off, she’s not letting it go to waste as the participants of Santa Ava 23 will take turns as the main Vote for the Girls moderator panel. But not to worry, the main moderator panel’s positions are safe.

Vote for the Girls USA: Ava Zinn plans “radical” changes to next season’s shows

The very popular American version of Vote for the Girls could end up being very different to any of the previous seasons.

IMG_0790.JPG

After ratings for the current run continued to decline despite the additions of So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD), America’s Got Talent (AGT), Dancing with The Stars (DWTS) as make-up competitions, changes are already in the works and thought up for next year’s Vote for the Girls.

Changes that took effect were the additions of the Moderators’ Save that was used to decline the defeats of Valerie Rockey of So You Think You Can Dance 11, DaNica Shirey of The Voice 7, Jax Cole of American Idol 14, and Meghan Linsey of The Voice 8–the two latter were declared the “Female Victories” with American Idol 14 winner Nick Fradiani (chosen as a Vote for the Girls for Team Ava Zinn and Kymberly Alvaraz) and The Voice 8 projected winner Sawyer Fredericks (chosen by newcomer Thia Tola).

Another change that took place was Alvaraz’s move from the pink team to the purple team after Kymberly (Christian) Alvaraz began a long-term relationship with Ava Zinn, resulting in the first duo moderator on the Vote for the Girls moderator panel, and proved to be popular in both Indianapolis and Denver, with the web site has shown growth in Denver with Alvaraz on the moderator panel (and the fourth strongest moderator on the panel behind Zinn, Holly Everman, and Kellie Rock) while the site saw growth in Pennslvania and Indiana.

Speaking about the future of Vote for the Girls USA, Ava Zinn (yours truly) admits that there are currently a few plans on who would be on the moderator panel. I know Kymberly, Julia, Kendra, Holly, Kellie, Thia, Lanise, Tracia, and I will be back on the panel…. with three other duo moderators besides myself and Kymberly, Julia and her transgendered daughter (Rachael) on the purple team and two duo moderators on the pink team: Holly & Nermal Everman (Holly’s niece) and Kellie and her transgendered wife (Megan).

“Things have to change, I’m not talking about people on the site, we’ve got some ideas which I’m excited about.”

Ratings for Vote for the Girls on YouTube this year have been some of the worst in years, with the spring cycle viewing figures getting close to below 2,000 viewers. Most of blame has to be the combination of several show presentations shown on one episode, construction/renovations at the YouTube Broadcast Operations Center that began on March 16, 2015–the same day as the DWTS 20 season premiere, and ongoing disputes/impasses causing schedule conflicts with Ava Zinn.

October is Leg Beards for Breast Cancer Month

It may be the 21st of September 2014 and as is typical punishment for failure when a female contestant or a Vote for the Girls pick on my site — voteforthegirls.us — doesn’t win (ex: runner-up or worse), I take part in what has become a tradition that I’ve taken criticism for since I launched the site nearly five years ago.

IMG_0385.JPG

I’m not the only woman or transwoman that many have had audacity to say that have called me a f***ot, and far worse derogatory terms that is typically used in the trans community.

Sure, prior to my gender transition, I had a beard and had it shaved after I graduated from Mississinewa High School some 13 years ago.

It was during the month of October of 2012 while watching Fox 59’s newscasts that the guys (notably Brian Wilkes and Ray Cortopassi) have grown their beards out. At the end of the day, I put two and two together and realized back in 2011, I didn’t know a whole lot about Beards for Breast Cancer until I learned it was an Indianapolis-based organization that asked only the guys to grow a beard during the month of October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.


In the past, I posted daily pictures of the unlady-likeness of the hairy leg until Haloween night or the morning of November 1. (As I did last year)

But not this year: Because I called off the competition and announced I was auctioning off my virginity to the highest female bidder on April 18, 2014 that ended a little early due to low bids, I decided back in August that I wasn’t going to shave my legs for the remainder of 2014 (to coincide with the vegetarian diet that will end on January 4, 2015) and since I’m often free to ignore the rules of Vote for the Girls as I see fit.. this Leg Beard for Breast Cancer punishment has become a real bitch in 2014. Yes the legs was bid adieu in August as I prepared for five  straight months of leg hair oriented charitable causes (Beards for Breast Cancer in October and No Shave November) .

The rules seem simple enough: Have clean-shaven legs on October 1st (for me earlier than that), grow a leg beard for 31 days, donate money–the latter is usually non-existent. I’m sure there are more rules, but anything that allows me to not shave my legs for a month (or longer) while still supporting breast cancer awareness and gets my vote as a worthwhile charity endeavor.

————————

About this Leg Beards for Breast Cancer and No Shave November Vote for the Girls Punishment for Failure

After a Vote for the Girls Loss is claimed when a girl doesn’t win shows like American Idol, The Voice, and/or Rising Star, the Vote for the Girls USA moderators (myself, Holly Everman, and other female friends) take part in the the great annual events called “Beards for Breast Cancer since October 2010 and for the first time in November 2014 “No-Shave-November” where guys and girls alike unite in the height of laziness agreeing to not shave their beards or legs (respectively) for the entire months of October and November.

After all, they are the busiest parts of the semester or work year, and you are the farthest behind on sleep, so why waste the time? Plus, it’ll cold enough to wear scarves or jeans (respectively) to cover that unsightly hair.
Everyone, young and old, male and female can participate in Beards for Breast Cancer and No-Shave-November by following this simple calendar of guide-lines. The festivities shall unfold thusly:

  • October 1 (or the first day of Beards for Breast Cancer): Razors are stowed, indifference ignited. Beards for Breast Cancer begins.
  • October 1-7: The week of scratching that itch. Push yourself, control the desire to shave and relieve the itchiness.
  • First Wednesday: Itch hump day.
  • October 14: Finally the women do look ridiculous.
  • October 27: Finally the boys or follicularly-challenged do look ridiculous.
  • November 1: Razors are stowed, indifference ignited. Noshember begins.
    Nov 1-7: The week of scratching that itch. Push yourself, control the desire to shave and relieve the itchiness.
  • Nov 30: Photograph day. Take your best hair exhibiting celebration photos. You have truly completed something great.
  • Dec 1: Great festival of many razors, shaving commences.

Among Beards for Breast Cancer and No Shave November traditions, perhaps the strongest is the beard and/or leg hair contest (or armpits or whatever…be creative). Lets see who is the fullest, bushiest, and most natural after a month, and then join in a ritual corporate shoring of our hides!

 

Girls Rules of the Game

Ladies (and this applies to transgendered and transsexual women as well)! Don’t think that just because you can’t grow a burly beard you can’t participate in Beards for Breast Cancer and No Shave November…You can! Now it may not be on your face, but hair does grow on your body…the most commonly sported female hair is on the legs and under the arms. Now its quite uncommon for even males in our society to be unkempt in general, but its especially uncommon (and unusual) for females to go all natural. So we want to give you a special word of encouragement and thanks for supporting the ways of the hairy. Only a few select women (as part of Beards for Breast Cancer Awareness) have what it takes to participate in this tradition. I think I have been commended for this, as well as my friend Holly  you.

A note from one of the female No-Shave November Facebook groups:

“For all the girls who think they can go for all of November without shaving. We are standing up for our right as women!”

“How long can you go? *oh, btw, this group is only for legs. feel free to shave other places as you wish, cuz i’m not gonna go there*”

Ava Zinn to auction virginity (as a male) with a catch – SHOCKING

UPDATE (4/20/14): I just published the site of my virginity auction. It is at AvaZinn.US. Once the auction is completed, I will turn AvaZinn.us to a message board/wiki type

It's Official, Ava is selling her virginity (as a biological male)

It’s Official, Ava is selling her virginity (as a biological male)

This is one of the biggest posts and quite frankly the hardest decision I’ve ever made. I had hoped that something like this would never happen and unfortunately it is something that I feel is now necessary after the factors that lead top my final decision to auction of my virginity. Yes, it means that I have unfortunately decided to have sexual intercourse (as a biological male for the last time) with a biological woman. After years of relationship failures as a male that led to a fateful prom night that changed everything.

I posted on Facebook:

Thank y’all so much for your kind words and support over the five years on Facebook and 20 plus years I’ve been friends with a majority–especially Holly Everman Willis, Alec Dailey, Karly Cope, Elaine Ellis, Ramona Reed Tyler, Ashley Dawson, Wendy Becker Simpkins, Telissa Hunt, Justin Planck, Veronica Schmerber, and Kayla Battishill,

Though many long-time friends will be critical of what I will announce on YouTube Friday, I know the true meaning of friendship lies in the heart and being loyal. Since 1994, a dark secret desire of mine was hidden of what eventually lead to this ongoing gender transition (and since the transition began 10 years ago this December, I’ve been more successful as a woman) and a clear evidence is Vote for the Girls USA – Official which has had success last year. Before I came out as ‪#‎MtF‬ in 2003 Megan Stone and Blake Pattison were the last individuals ever to see me as a male (as far as living as a male) and today had I not came out back then I would have taken my own life.

I am so much more than what you hear or see on Vote for the Girls and online (of which I often curse, occasionally bullying, telling those who to vote for) – it’s about being passionate, it’s about fulfilling a goal, it’s about fulfilling an obligation.

Everyone that I have met over the years have proven that to me since my kindergarten year over a quarter-century ago. Thank you for the support over the years allowing me to be far more successful as a woman

Whatever the consequences and repercussions of what I announce on YouTube Friday, I will always become a woman of my word and remain hopeful the best is still yet to come. Thank you all so much for your understanding!

To ensure I am not doing a porn site (of which I have threatened to do if Alex & Sierra did not win The X Factor USA in December), there will be a section of this web site with a link at the front page of AvaZinn.com about the virginity auction in the days to come.  I will also dedicated a section of AvaZinn.com to discussing my difficult decision to sell my virginity. Sure my views on prostitution won’t be posted, and what you will discover that this decision has something to do with Jessica Meuse landing in the bottom group on American Idol (You can bet that this will make national headlines such as “MARION TRANSGENDER WOMAN SELLS VIRGINITY” in the Marion Chronicle-Tribune or “INDIANA TRANSGENDER WOMAN SELLS VIRGINITY FOR LOSING ‘iDOL’ BET in The Indianapolis Star), of which was the final factor in this.

The factors that lead to the decision to auction off my virginity has to be:

  1. The prom my senior year (of which the prom date showed three hours late and 12 years later stripped her of the title) and consequent IWU dis-enrollment
  2. Years of rejection as a male finding a mate (WILL BE FINALLY RESOLVED)
  3. Years of being bullied for being different in the 1990’s
  4. A fourth factor has to be as a Vote for the Girls Punishment for Failure, I think it will make people start realizing that the site needs more support and realize voting for males on American Idol is a serious crime–regardless of how good he is (no offense)

As I hope you can tell, I have devoted a great deal of time, thought, and study to this decision. I have cherished every last moment, and already this will become the historic experience of a lifetime.

Ava Zinn misses Vote for the Girls deadline – X Factor Top 16 and The Voice Knockouts results

For the second time in Vote for the Girls‘ 5-season history, I missed the deadline to complete an episode, and yes it .

On Tuesday night, due to a schedule conflict with The X Factor and The Voice. From capturing video to rendering to editing and sound, all of our equipment needed to get the episode online were taking longer than expected  and we were unable to finish episode 510 and 511 in time.  When episode 511 finally got on YouTube NBC took the episode down, and requiring yours truly to redo the episode

VOTE for THE GIRLS 2014 – THE VOICE KNOCKOUTS & VOTE FOR THE GIRLS 2014 – X FACTOR TOP 16 RESULTS  will be uploaded Sunday, November 3.

So what caused Vote for the Girls team to  miss the mark? A little problem called a schedule conflict between The X Factor and The Voice, required yours truly, Holly Everman, and Ariel Swaringen. Also during the episode Holly and Ariel got into a heated feud over Holly Henry losing and I had to break up the dispute. Ava Zinn said, “It’s heart-wrenching to miss an air date but after four years of multitasking by delivering the show to YouTube at the last possible minute, I guess it was unavoidable.”

More details will be posted as soon as more info becomes available.

Ava Zinn’s Vote for the Girls: 122 bleeps used among three YouTube videos

Often times since I launched Vote for the Girls on this web site as a campaign that since moved to its own URL, there will be cross promotions between VFTG and AvaZinn.com.

Last Tuesday, while I was recording a VFTG episode, there were at least 55 bleeps used to mask the swearing.

But the following two nights, approximately 70 more were added.

In summation, it is pretty much may be official since everyone around Marion will describe yours truly as a foul-mouth transwoman. On Vote for the Girls, when you are passionate on a pick to win the singing competition, that kind of behavior depicted in these three YouTube clips are necessary. Many people will probably tell you, “Wow, Ava Zinn is like the Gordon Ramsay of American Idol.” A web site like VFTG are run on emotions, during the American Idol 12 finale was a clear example. I might get upset, but most of all it is not 100 percent personal.
