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

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.

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 is currently in counseling/therapy with Erin Davis since March 1, 2017.
Since Ava’s rape, Ava has not used public transportation nor will set foot until her suspect is arrested and convicted.

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).

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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.

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

Addressing Response Regarding Facebook post about 1994 Eastbrook/Mississinewa Inclimate WX Cold Case…

Editor’s note: This letter is in response to reaction to one decision made by the late Eastbrook Consolidated Schools Superintendent Dennis Fox (1945-2016) in February 1994. This is considered to be a “civil cold case” now resolved.

Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers go out to Dr. Fox’s family and friends during this extremely difficult time. A brave husband and educator lost his life after an illness. We also extend our sympathy to one of my late brother’s friends Jessica (Todd) Fox and offer thanks to those who have stood by yours truly after Albert’s suicide on August 10, 2002 (even though he drowned at Pine Lake).

I have received a number of comments about a Facebook post that I had to post since it met my threshold of a post that seemed necessary in my judgement. It was Dr. Fox’s obituary nonetheless. The reason why I intercepted that particular post after I read it on Facebook via Jessica and the fact back in February of 1994, Mississinewa Community Schools was either under a delay or running on time while the home district at the time (Eastbrook) was closed due to weather conditions, and in violation of a Zinn Family Policy that went into effect on July 4, 1993 (follow the Mississinewa Community Schools Schedule regardless of the schedules of the home district–even if Eastbrook is on delay or closed).

As a fourth grader at Northview Elementary School (located in the Mississinewa School District) living in Van Buren (in the Eastbrook school district) back in February 1994, I had begun to take the role more of a parent than a child. Education then as now is important. It is just one reason why at the end of every Vote for the Girls episode, I add the phrase, “Help control your child’s education, have them immunized.” I would go on and on and on explaining in further details like the Energizer bunny, but I am not going to.

Twenty-two and a half (22 1/2) years later–in 2016–now as a woman and a father (yes, I still am a father despite the ongoing gender transition) of four daughters (one of them has since graduated from college, two in high school and one in middle school), it is safe to say that a dispute is finally resolved. Fall/Autumn is now in full swing. It’s chilly. It’s a time of year when you start preparing for winter weather conditions such as snow and ice, which is an even greater hassle than usual because of the cold conditions. Nonetheless, I used to love snow and play in it, but not anymore after 1994 after that incident and seeing a water heater pipe bursting when I lived at my mother’s in Van Buren. (I never forgot it as long as I’m alive)

After celebrating my 11th birthday, I took a vow of loyalty when I got the flu back in January 1994 and had to miss school due to that. It is also a vow of perfection and doing whatever it took and anything to achieve that goal–even if means going to school sick, making the three hour walk or one hour bike trip from Van Buren to Gas City in the event Mississinewa Community Schools is running on schedule while Eastbrook Community is either closed or delayed (which meant back then no transportation).

That particular incident of which following an investigation that was later determined to be at the decision of Dr. Fox back then (and at one point, if memory serves me right, even tried to confront him right after my brother’s high school graduation in June 1996, but my mother wouldn’t allow me to do so–despite knowing what I knew was right and wrong on my part). That decision of Dr. Fox to have the audacity to closing Eastbrook for the day in February 1994 while Mississinewa wasn’t, which to this day (and have now officially forgiven Dr. Fox for that) was ruled (based on 1994 rules and regulations) for CAUSING (yes, I said “causing” since then as now as it could have easily all been avoided had Mississinewa AND Eastbrook closed for the day) yours truly to lose out perfect attendance back in the 1993-94 school year.

It was after my mother, brother, and I relocated from Van Buren to Marion on October 15, 1996 influenced of what my immediate family would become and learning from the mistakes a parent made while growing up: to ensure my children get their education and becoming a far better parent than my mother was when she raised my brother and myself, I adopted a special system (dubbed the “Bothwell system” after the then-Mississinewa Community Schools superintendent Dr. Robert Bothwell when I attended RJB and Ole Miss High School), while my four daughters and son (Samantha, Tiffani, Ashli, Tabitha, and Kenneth) as well as my step-daughter Denise (Kymberly’s youngest daughter) would contractually stipulate (it’s a rule that I have enforced since July 4, 1993) about school closings/delays involving my children’s and my alma matter school district (Mississinewa Community Schools) regardless of the home school district (in this case since 1996, Marion Community Schools and from 1985 until 1996 Eastbrook Community Schools), and ensuring my children meet or even exceed a good attendance record–a very important aspect of having a good education.

Under the terms of the July 1993 rule passed by the family legislature, I had a contractual obligation as a 10 year old boy, I have to arrive promptly at Northview Elementary promptly at 8:25 a.m. Eastern, and cannot arrive late or be absent for any reason whatsoever, even weather conditions. I was inclined to favor my education over whatever any administrator says (two clear examples were on April 18, 1996 and in January 1997), as I only had two friends (Holly Everman and Robyn Hurd) being well treated well in hopes of return loyalty.

That obligation, unfortunately, often times includes controversy, backlash, negative criticism, uncomfortable subjects that are at times difficult to hear, make you upset, or even make you angry. And while this Mississinewa High School Class of 2001 Alumnus is now living as a woman 34 years of age, everyone involved is human and have similar reactions. So these are situations we take very seriously.

By learning about Dr. Fox’s death this week from a long-time friend of Albert’s that I inherited, I was able get a resolution to a 22 1/2 year old dispute automatically and officially forgave Dr. Fox.

Also by deciding to posting the obituary on Facebook with my thoughts, you were able to get an answer to “who caused Ava Zinn to miss school that day in February 1994?” I also wanted to give some insight and direction into someone I did not agree with about the decision to delay or cancel school involving two school districts–attending and home districts. For some, maybe it’s something you are already familiar with in Grant County or wherever you live; for others it may be something you simply do not understand or comprehend and I suggest you do some research–that’s how you will learn by reading and doing research.

Plus, if my memory serves me correctly when I read the obituary, I learned Dr. Fox was pretty much the predecessor of Dr. Bothwell and in a bit of an irony (not 100 percent sure or even confirmed this) from what I remember, I’m pretty sure there is an indirect lead (maybe just a hunch) to my dis-enrollment from Indiana Wesleyan University 15 years ago and the hunt for another college/university to attend in order for readmission to IWU after completing a few credit hours at another college/university (something I have determined back in January 2002). It was very difficult for to see, comprehend and understand — mostly for anyone who attended Mississinewa Community Schools but doesn’t live in the school district.

This story was just only one small part of my complete coverage of the IWU Cold Case and ensuring what I know is right for my children. I will continue to fight for family and continued do so.

It is not my my intention to bash someone that has recently passed while that same individual’s family is in mourning, as one person commented on Facebook. This is not the first time it has happened, and I’m sure it will not be the last.

Again, I honor Dr. Fox for his dedication to the Eastbrook Community Schools and we hope you understand the tough choices that must be made. Like my friends and fans–BOTTOM LINE–justice is officially served .

Ava Zinn addresses the responses regarding minor accident, recent decisions

I am well aware of it. I am very well aware of criticism I am facing after making the decision to go live on Facebook with a breaking story after witnessing a minor accident on the afternoon of Friday, September 2, 2016 at the intersection of North Wabash Avenue and West Kem Road on the northwest side of Marion (Indiana).

As someone who is an executive producer of “Vote for the Girls (USA on YouTube)” and with some broadcast journalism experience background while attending Mississinewa High School and previously launched a news department back in 1999, you would know what I am talking about. I’m sure that all broadcast journalists have to know whether or not to shoot a Facebook live segment (something I do not do very often, unless it is warranted).

The decision to go on Facebook live just a half hour after witnessing the minor accident, met my threshold and met my threshold of the decision to go on Facebook Live, despite being shaken up. However, keep in mind that I had to find a spot with a stable Wi-Fi connection in order to provide the live update as it happened and had to work with what I have available.

My decision to post the live video on Facebook simply came down to the obligation and a duty to inform fans (both on THIS WEB SITE and Vote for the Girls) and friends without any f**king question in my judgement whatsoever. The decision also came down to the decision of this one news story since I also run the “Vote for the Girls” franchise.

One clear example of when to make the decision to go live on Facebook and/or post on YouTube at the first opportunity (besides posting episodes) happened during the summer break, starting with the very second I got alerted (approximately 4:00 AM Eastern) from sources in Orlando, Florida of word via Twitter about the murder (or should I say the Assassination) of Christina Grimmie on June 11, 2016. The reason that story met my threshold of my definition of an assassination is because Christina Grimmie was my Vote for the Girls pick on the sixth season of The Voice and decided to pick eventual winner Joshua Kaufman (I cannot accept Mr. Kaufman as a fellow Hoosier because he is from Virgina and the reason why WTHR “13 NBC” anchorman Scott Swan is no longer my all-time Indianapolis anchorman–that position is now held by Ray Cortopassi at Fox 59 in Indianapolis) as a “Vote for the Worst pick.”  Two years later (THIS YEAR), NOW I know that I had made the right decision for a good reason or two (Watch “Remembering Christina Grimmie” from VFTG  and “INNewsCenter’s 300th YouTube clip” below the details) ;

  • After Alisan Porter won “The Voice” and watching BOTH clips from Alisan Porter and Joshua Kaufman from “Star Search” back in the day on YouTube as well as after I OFFICIALLY sold my virginity to my girlfriend, Kymberly, as a threat if a female contestant did not win shows like “The Voice” or “American Idol”, which in fact did happen and what eventually lead to the most brutal punishment at the time.
  • Ever since the late Christina Grimmie’s third place finish two years ago, I’ve since made changes to Vote for the Girls to include “flex picking” (or switching picks) last year that produced my first American Idol moderator victory after Nick Fradiani was announced the winner (though I did not watch the finale performances, but Kymberly did because Jax Cole, the last female contestant, finished third, and I never watch an all-male finale nor from 1986 until I posted as part of a late “April Fool’s Day” prank after 23 years on the INNewsCenter YouTube channel, decided to post Scott Jones and Gene Cox anchoring the April 3, 2009 edition of Fox 59’s morning newscast–there are certain days when the day is right or when I do get advance notice then and ONLY THEN will that ever happen)….

Often times, most of the moderator panelists on VFTG also do double duty as a de facto reporter as a broadcast journalist. The first time that ever happened was on June 11, 2016 when I had to broadcast a special episode of “Vote for the Girls” that was eventually posted on the YouTube channel the night of June 11, 2016 (watch below) and also on INNewsCenter (watch below).

I have faced way too much criticism in recent years over recent decisions and a great majority of those decisions proved to be justified (similar to when a police officer has to shoot a suspect), but the fact of the matter is many of those other decisions were made because of what I have available at that time. Take the WISH-TV/Bright House dispute eight years ago, look at the repercussions that followed and the reason why I have cut the cord some years before it became a trend not because of costs, but after the big four Fort Wayne stations were dropped from Bright House is what killed INNewsCenter and outdated equipment . Another clear example was raising just enough funds for my American Idol audition five years ago, when I had no other choice but to raise funds by holding a yard sale yet the side effect of that was breaking the lease.

I’ve received a number of comments about the accident since Friday night. As the webmaster of AvaZinn.com, my obligation is to primarily inform people of Grant County, Indiana with this web site and entertain (such as Vote for the Girls and INNewsCenter). That obligation unfortunately, sometimes, includes uncomfortable subjects or comments that are difficult to hear or even make you angry–most of those comments were hurtful and at times disrespectful for a transgender woman nearing 34 years of age. And while this webmaster is human as well and we have similar reactions. These are situations we take very seriously.

By posting the live Facebook video Friday afternoon, you were able to get a third side of the story, the witness’ side. I wanted to give some insight into the mind of someone who happened to have witnessed the minor accident as it happened  so there was some context and exposure for you. For some, maybe it’s something you are already familiar with; for others it may be something you cannot even comprehend. It was difficult for many of us to watch and understand coming from the witness’ point of view. I’ve seen it way too many times since the day I moved to Marion from Van Buren on October 16, 1996.

The decision to post the live video on Facebook is just a small part in the existing commitment I made on May 26, 2001–the day I graduated from Mississinewa High School. That commitment did not change after I began a long transition to a woman in 2004.

Again, it is the reason why I do this web site and I hope you understand the tough choices we have to make in making the decision to go on Facebook Live. Like our viewers, we want 100 percent of the story.

Ava Zinn to take part in Risperdal settlement

Risperdal

In August 2002, just days after my brother Albert took his own life (despite the Adams County Corner ruling my brother’s death an accident), I was prescribed by Dr. Jerry Co a drug called Risperdal after I said, “I’m OK, but not OK.”

I took that particular medication for as much as as six months and realised that my fate (as a biological male) was sealed the second the pill traveled through my liver.

Today, after reading through my Facebook feed, about Risperdal and male breaths growth, I had an obligation to make my story heard.

I will update this story.

Ava Zinn Statement Regarding April 22, 2015 Incident in Marion, IN

Rape12

As most of you know, or will know if you haven’t heard already is that on the early afternoon of April 22, 2015, I have been a victim of a sexual assault. It is the second time in my life it has happened. The incident has been reported to the Marion (IN) Police Department later that afternoon and have pressed charges for the woman to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

AVA ZINN STATEMENT REGARDING APRIL 22, 2015 SEXUAL ASSAULT

on the afternoon of April 22, 2015, I got off the Marion City Bus – specifically the West Marion bus – at the intersection of Westwood Square and 2nd Street to the Cardinal Greenway to use the restroom and then get cigarettes from the Sunoco Mini Mart, at 120 South Miller Avenue, at approximately 1:15 PM. It would be the last time I ever sat foot in the Picture Perfect area as well as the last Marion City Bus I ever took for the time being. It was also the last time I ever sat foot at that particular Sunoco Mini Mart. This is considered to be 9/27 copycat.

At approximately 1:16 PM on the afternoon of April 22, 2015, I pulled the ding cord that alerted the bus driver named Jim to stop at the intersection of Second Street and Westwood Drive. I remember getting off first going around my business going to the restroom at the Cardinal Greenway, getting cigarettes at Sunoco Mini-Mart, and head back to the neutral site since renovations were underway.

At approximately 1:17 PM, the rape suspect—described as an African American female between her late teens and mid 20’s standing no more than five feet six inches in height with a blue arrow-like piercing on her left eyebrow with her hair tied back wearing a blue hoodie, a pair of dark blue jeans, a blue backpack with a mobile telephone with a pink cover, also got off the West Marion bus and followed me (I did not follow her at all even though she sat across the aisle and I sat at the seat behind that particular bus seat) just as I was about to use the restroom at the Cardinal Greenway, which would normally be a five minute walk from the bus stop at the intersection of Second Street and Westwood Drive.

At approximately 1:18 PM, the suspect then lured me into the back of a building behind a former tattoo parlor that also houses Hoosier Imaging, Temprol Comics & Sci-Fi, Picture Perfect Pet Center, and Deb’s Laundry, collectively known as the businesses that are housed at Westwood Square. Despite efforts on my part to get away from the suspect, I remember blacking out since I had a trace amount of vodka approximately 16 hours before ; therefore I was not under the influence of alcohol, but was under the influence of nicotine.

Then at approximately 1:19 PM, the suspect, in fact lured me into the back of the building and at that point I knew I was in duress and pretty much frozen in fear and from that point on—that was when I knew at that point (though I did not know that at the time and pretty much blacking out) something wasn’t right. The last thing I remembered was the suspect managed to pull my pants pulled down and I urinated at southeast corner, reliving myself under duress. Another thing I also remembered was the suspect saying, “you pee a lot” and fondled my breasts (of which I knew that was inappropriate). The suspect’s hands touching my breasts inappropriately as well as my genitals right then and there sat off the red flag that this was a sexual assault/rape was about to happen, hence in violation of Indiana Code 35-42-4-8. The suspect at that point, committed a female-on-male sexual battery charge when she touched my breasts inappropriately even though my gender identity is that of a female and right then and there.

The suspect then according to my recollection took a photo of my “enlarged clitoris” with her mobile telephone without my permission. Therefore, the suspect is in violation of Indiana Code 35-45-4-5, commonly known as public voyeurism.

Then at 1:22 PM approximately, the suspect knowingly or intentionally caused me to perform or submit to other sexual contact as defined by Indiana Code 35-31.5-2-221.5 when I was 100 percent unaware the sexual intercourse or other sexual contact occurred has committed female-on-male rape, a Level 3 felony. The suspect FORCED me to insert my “enlarged clitoris” to the suspect’s vagina—I could tell right away this met my threshold of a female-on-male sexual assault the very second the suspect fondled my most intimate parts of my body (my breasts first and then my “enlarged clitoris” afterwards) since the suspect did not have my consent whatsoever to have sexual intercourse or other sexual contact (its always reserved for my significant other and only such person has that privilege) with me and the very split second the suspect INTENTIONALLY caused me to perform the sexual act—I knew right away I was raped the second I ejaculated and I was emotionally injured by the suspect.

After the rape happened, I knew something wasn’t right but I did not know that because it was truly a nightmarish feeling going through my mind once I entered the Sunoco Mini Mart for what would probably be for the foreseeable future the last time I ever sat foot at that particular Sunoco Mini Mart and the Picture Perfect area. I knew I was hurt (most of my injuries were mental and emotional) and at the same time it felt like one of my the biggest nightmares in nearly 25 years. My first thought when I went to Sunoco, I was trying to get cash out of an ATM and I only had nearly $18 that I had earmarked to pay a credit card bill that was due knowing if I took out money to pay for the emergency contraceptive the suspect wanted $20 and it was clear to me the suspect’s primary motive of the female-on-male rape has to be robbery to support a habit of the suspect’s—whatever the suspect’s motive of raping me was, whether it is prostitution, a sexual gratification, or just not having the funds, I don’t believe I will ever know the answer to that question of motive on the suspect’s part.

While I was getting cigarettes at the Sunoco Mini Mart at approximately 1:25 PM, as I intended to after I got off the West Marion bus, I wanted to alert the clerk at the store about the rape that just occurred and I could tell from the clerk’s face, I just couldn’t ask the clerk to call the police because (1) the rape suspect by that time had gone to the restroom and (2) I was under an incredible amount of fear after the suspect verbally threatened me by saying she would press charges against me in the event I reported this female-on-male rape and/or in the event suspect is pregnant she would obtain an abortion or a similar statement. This was a threat I took seriously and the suspect’s words and threats indicated to me the suspect is a danger to me and in a violation of Indiana Code 35-45-2-5, of which prompted me to comply with the suspect’s demands once I left Sunoco for the last time for now at 1:30 that Wednesday, April 22, 2015.

This is a complete (if not a closely accurate) description of the suspect of the sexual assault that took place in Marion on the afternoon of April 22, 2015. All I need is a name to the suspect.

This is a complete (if not a closely accurate) description of the suspect of the sexual assault that took place in Marion on the afternoon of April 22, 2015.
All I need is a name to the suspect.

 

During the nearly 40+ minute walk from Sunoco to CVS/pharmacy (415 West Third Street), I knew deep in my heart I had to do the right thing because:

I had to report the rape as quickly as possible despite the suspect’s objections not to do so because I knew the threshold of sexual battery was committed the very second I was touched inappropriately by the suspect;

This rape became the third such sexual attack in my life of which I became the victim.

The first rape occurred at Turtle Creek Apartments that was committed by suspect Clyde Davis in July of 2002 (that rape became the first time a sexual act without my consent had been committed when Mr. Davis intentionally performed “male on male” oral sex when I was in pretty much in very deep emotional trauma caused by the death of my mother two months earlier on May 10, 2002 and has since made a full recovery physically but years of mental and emotional pain from loss and domestic abuse at the hands of my mother, brother, and extended family members do occasionally cause a minor hiccup now and then; therefore after I began to transition to female, it was determined (awaiting doctors’ confirmation) that if and when I do return to college sadly, I will never be able to attend full-time ever after determining from doctors over the years and will be cleared to only attend no more than part-time status. The first rape was never reported to Marion Police—and even if I did report the 2002 rape, it would not have made any difference for the following reasons:

(1) The statues of limitations from the 2002 rape have since passed as of 2007 and therefore any charges I would press would not make any difference anyway because in that case all of the evidence was destroyed by Mr. Davis. That rape would have been reported under my previous name (as a male) and it would not have made any difference whatsoever at all. That rape started the beginning of what eventually proved to be the last two years of living as a male.

(2) As is the case with male sexual assault victims, as a biological male (though I had a gut instinct after I remember seeing a woman named “Amy Jo” one day and since I had began smoking four months earlier after one fateful prom), I fell into the so called peer pressure to prove my manhood physically and sexually with the sense of inadequacy, loss of power and control and eventually made the college life much difficult and failing to find another college to attend to fill the void left after my dis-enrollment from Indiana Wesleyan University with no solution that met my standards so I can get re-admitted back to Indiana Wesleyan University pretty much caused a domino effect with repercussions felt both directly and indirectly.

This  female on transgender female (biological female on biological male) rape occurred at approximately 1:25 PM on April 22, 2015 and reported to Marion Police (case number 2015-10498) at 3:16 PM that same day and evidence was also collected in addition to pressing charges for the suspect to be prosecuted. This rape differed from the previous two rapes because the suspect’s gender is female and she could be potentially pregnant; therefore, giving birth to a baby potentially by between December 2015 and March 2016 or if worse case scenario the suspect follows through on her threat go through with an abortion if she is pregnant from the rape, I will add the capital murder charges with the rape. In the event the suspect is pregnant despite emergency contraceptive I will request the superior court with EXTREME PREJUDICE at my request to impose the the suspect serve at least 25 years in prison (death penalty or 55 years in the event she went through with the abortion)

I focused on the suspect’s actions throughout the two and a half mile walk lasting nearly 40 minutes as follows:

I observed the suspect was calling a woman named “Alisha” (I’m not sure of the spelling or pronunciation of that particular name) about something that I’m confident is absolutely none of my business on that same cellular mobile telephone the suspect used to photograph my “enlarged clitoris,”

I also noticed her shoelaces on her boots were untied (of which could have caused her to trip on her own shoelaces during the 40 minute plus walk—something I neglected to mention in my initial statement to Marion Police) and tried my best to keep the my focus on the suspect,

I remembered being asked by the suspect if I had any sexually transmitted diseases and I responded that I did not. It is in my dating and relationship policy of mine that anytime I am a rape/sexual assault victim and the offender is someone other than my significant other, I always get tested for any sexually transmitted diseases and HIV to ensure I have no sexually transmitted diseases in addition to reporting the rape and pressing charges for the suspect to be prosecuted under Indiana law. As of May 2015 there are no sexually transmitted diseases as a result of the rape.

Once I had entered CVS/pharmacy at approximately 2:10 PM to get the emergency contraceptive and the receipt from CVS is Exhibit A and after the transaction of the emergency contraceptive was used with my debit card (while at the same time fulfilling a promise made to the current representative payee also to avoid overdrawing from my bank account I have access to due to a very strict long-standing iron-clad family policy requiring a bank account and cannot be changed for any reason whatsoever, though it is typically unusual for SSI beneficiaries as most do not have such bank accounts yet in my case the bank account of mine is necessary and will eventually come in handy in the event should I become my own payee since her only income at this time is SSI) due to the fact I has a very strict policy (I’m typically paid by the month in order to circumvent the current Representative Payee’s rules and alleviate schedule conflicts) and never usually carries more than $20 cash as of January 4, 2011, and as shown in Exhibit A: Receipt from CVS was given to the the Representative Payee, which Petitioner had to report. The funds in question were eventually replenished and the credit card payment was in fact paid with no overdraws.

At 2:25 PM approximately, the suspect and I went the separate ways after approximately between an hour to 75 minutes. Once the suspect went her separate way to a bus stop near the Marion Public Library and I realized at that moment was my opportunity to report the rape and I headed straight to the Community Support Program—finally acting on my first instinct the very second the suspect committed sexual battery and it was clear I was sexually assaulted. I remember crying hysterically for the next two to four hours in pain and in trauma (this clearly showed in the eventual initial statement I gave to Marion Police while I was at the hospital because I am, and still are, living in fear my life as well as also of the possibility the suspect could potentially turn the tables on the rape investigation).

At 2:27 PM, I alerted a supervisor while at the Community Support Program by the first name of Christina and told her what had happened an hour earlier—I made it clear my priority has to be to report the female on male rape IMMEDIATELY right there from that point on the suspect did not have my consent not because I did not have a condom, and when I informed the supervisor the very second the female on male rape happened I knew it was a rape that could potentially be a blessing in disguise for me (I clearly stated this in both my initial statement to Marion Police and to the hospital staff) since I remember from a conversation I had from either sex ed class in high school or from the father of my first girlfriend (“it takes only one sperm” to get a girl pregnant such a phrase I remember being said then). I then went to the hospital because I knew I was hurt. By 6:00 PM, I was treated and released from the hospital and was heading back to the “neutral site” and eventually began taping for the April 22, 2015 edition of the American version of “Vote for the Girls” in addition to alerting the landlady about “a potential household change” come January 2016, implying the female-on-male could potentially be a blessing in disguise in the event the suspect is in fact pregnant and assuming the suspect hasn’t gone through with an abortion (I will press charges for murder if the rape suspect goes through with the abortion because the suspect does not know me and I do not know her). This will be my first human child and when the rape was reported, I made it very clear in both the initial statement to the police, nurses, and to the mental health officials I am keeping the child since I was not wearing a condom when the female-on-male rape occurred.

In the hours that followed, several of my moderators on “Vote for the Girls (USA)” had questioned my emotional state that night while back in November 2014, viewers on the American and British adaptations of “Vote for the Girls” started noticing that my voice (as a woman) sounded uncharacteristically gravely and emotionally unhealthy on the YouTube episodes posted. The production of the American and Australian adaptations of “Vote for the Girls” went on as scheduled. I realized by the end of May 2015 that had I done anything differently other than what I did on “Vote for the Girls” and on the afternoon of April 22, 2015 as well as after renovations to my home were finished, the childproofing process to my home began, I believe my fans on Vote for the Girls and on YouTube would have been at the mercy of someone and effectively resulting of the cancellation of the American, British, and Australian adaptations of “Vote for the Girls.”

This female on male rape was an incident 19 years in the making with the suspect’s intent to commit prostitution. As I previously mentioned, a year earlier I announced on my YouTube channel on April 18, 2014 that I was auctioning off my virginity and having sex for the final time as a male—following through on a threat I made after the elimination of Ellona Santiago on “The X Factor (USA)”—if two males were in the American Idol season 13 final and/or if Josh Kaufman won the sixth season of “The Voice” (which oddly enough, the latter did occur). The virginity auction commenced on May 9, 2014 and ended on June 15, 2014 with Kymberly Alvaraz was informed that she was the winning bidder of the virginity auction after I accepted Ms. Alvaraz’s offer that produced a long-term relationship that will expire January 4, 2018. Like with all previous long-term relationships before entering into the agreement with Ms. Alvaraz, Ms. Alvaraz met all of the requirements that I laid out when the virginity auction was announced with Ms. Alvaraz making one notable exception that I allowed and the relationship process began on July 19, 2014, announced on November 29, 2014 and becoming official January 4, 2015. This confirms that the female-on-male rape happened when the suspect knowingly and to the best of my knowledge I believe the suspect’s intent was either:

  • the fact the suspect wanted a relationship (whether the suspect knew I had been in a relationship with KYMBERLY LAURA ALVARAZ (nee CHRISTIAN) since November 2014);
  • wanting sexual gratification in order to prove her bisexuality (I believe I could tell the suspect was bisexual—in fact, the two previous sexual assaults I encountered in 2002 (as a male) in Marion and 2010 (as a woman) in Indianapolis were bisexual males) ;
  • or a desire of power.

The suspect committed the female-on-male rape happened with the suspect’s likely motive of her revenge of social rejection, prostitution since my debit card was used after the rape occurred, or to a least likely extent has to be stalking (of which I don’t believe I can prove the rape was the result of the suspect seeking an intimate relationship with me nor do I believe to the best of my knowledge the suspect has a fixation or a sense of entitlement to an intimate relationship with me that apparently attracted the suspect’s interest in the first place). What the suspect may not realize was the fact she also could also be charged with prostitution because I went undercover as a male prostitute since I believe that area is or will be prone to prostitution.

I have pressed charges for the suspect to be prosecuted for female-on-male rape and/or feticide should the suspect already went through the abortion (since I am the biological father of the unborn child and Kymberly will take the legal maternal rights).

Vote for the Girls’ Moderators’ Veto on DaNica Shirey’s Elimination…

This has to be one of the biggest eliminations since I launched Vote for the Girls.

All eight of the moderators (Holly Everman, Julia Passalt, Kellie Rock, Lanise White, Rhonda Rhodes, Kendra Ray, Kymberly Alvaraz, and yours truly-Ava Zinn) unanimously agreed to reject the Vote for the Girls Loss since Shirey was the last remaining female on The seventh season of the NBC reality singing competition “The Voice”

With DaNica Shirey being the second recipient of the Moderators’ VETO, the American Version of Vote for the Girls did not declare a loss and none of the moderators face a Punishment for Failure.

I posted on Facebook about this: “I’m glad that I changed the rules on ‪#‎VoteForTheGirls‬. I’m proud to be the webmaster and thanking my fellow moderators of rejecting DaNica’s elimination and the ‪#‎VFTGLoss‬ so that being said….. It may not be outcome I had wanted, but I want to say thanks for Voting for DaNica Shirey and I’m one Lucky woman and my moderators on the Vote for the Girls unanimously ‪#‎VFTGModeratorsVeto‬

Julia Passalt, another moderator took to Twitter, “Pretty much bittersweet and nullified.
Can’t believe the result and when Ava announced #VFTGModeratorsVeto.. No #VFTGLoss
We lose DaNica, and so what do we do now? Let’s see. 0 girls left. #VFTGModeratorsVeto DaNica Shirey elimination and no #VFTGLoss”

Holly Everman on Twitter: “Honestly? What the f–k did I just see? I am glad that Ava changed the rules on Vote for the Girls USA – Official this year. I, Holly Marie Everman, cannot believe what I saw! #VoiceResults
#SHOCKED #VFTGModeratorsVeto Thank lord there isn’t a #VFTGLoss”

Ava Zinn Announcement (11/18/14)

IMG_0790.JPG
I am well aware of it and you should be too.

I understand that things have been really bad in 2014. This year marks 10 years since I began an ongoing gender transition from male to female. Setback after setback after setback after setback has been the problem for yours truly since my IWU dismissal.

A triumph or two happens to be Vote for the Girls, a site I launched on April 28, 2010 following Siobahn Magnus’ elimination. the site has been successful with six outright victories and going for a seventh.

This year, I made a lot of changes to Vote for the Girls USA that saw the site finally getting what quite possibly the only victory of 2014 following the elimination of Tommy & Peta last night.

Tonight, I watched along with just as much as everyone else witnessed what quite possibly be the second consecutive loss on The Voice with only three girls left–Anita Antioinette, DaNica Shirey, and Reagan James.

So with that in mind, if you have been a fan for years or have known me personally, I am asking you to help my site Vote for the Girls by encouraging you to go to the American version of the site.

Unfortunately, I have decided to make some changes that will incorporate Vote for the Girls (the American, British, and upcoming Austrailian adaptations) and INNewsCenter onto AvaZinn.com effective July 4, 2015.

The sites are not shutting down, per se, but it is apparent that my friends and fans have decided not to support Anita, DaNica, and Reagan.

By not voting for the the girls, you are hurting someone and not even know it.

I want everyone to take the Vote for the Girls pledge tonight or as of January 4, 2015 pay yours truly a monthly fee of $2.50 or $35 a year if you choose not to support the site securing a victory.

Of course, my closest friends have been the strongest bunch and I understand that what I just proposed to them may not work for everyone, I will find someone that will take the Vote for the Girls pledge as a condition of maintaining such friendship. So far, Holly Everman and Rachael Passalt are such friends that have taken the pledge. Those that choose not to, have until October 4, 2015 to comply with this new Ava Zinn Close Friend Mandate or risk ending a close friendship after years of being loyal.

As always, I do thank you for supporting The Vote for the Girls franchise. For those of you that would rather choose the best artist regardless of someone’s gender–I am truly sorry to say this, but after January 4, 2015, if you are a close friend and want to keep it, I know that you all have family obligations and understand that unforeseen circumstances do come up from time to time.

For those of say if the girls sang better, I would vote for them–I want you to consider this suggestion–do it anyway as long as you do not vote for any male contestant once you make the Vote for the Girls pledge since it is indefinite and it does apply to all singing competitions such as The Voice, American Idol, Rising Star, X Factor, and the make-up competitions such as So You Think You Can Dance, America’s Got Talent, and more recently Dancing with the Stars/Strictly Come Dancing.

I’m sure you all have a lot of questions about this and I will be happy to answer them.

I hope you will start voting for the ladies and when girls win these shows, my friends, my fans, and every one of Indiana’s 92 counties win also. The rewards will be amazing when a Vote for the Girls victory occurs.
