Transphobia and Healthcare

One of the most difficult aspects of being transgender or transsexual is finding a decent doctor that is willing to treat you like a human being. Since beginning my transition I've dealt with doctor after doctor that ignored my concerns about my healthcare, but never in my life have I ever had a doctor treat… Continue reading Transphobia and Healthcare

Medical Nightmare

The recurring theme in healthcare when it comes to being transgender is either lack of knowledge or outright discrimination, both of which I have experienced at the hands of doctors sworn to first do no harm according to the Hippocratic oath traditionally taken by doctors. The most recent case of discrimination I've experienced has been… Continue reading Medical Nightmare

Transgender Visibility

Ideas have been mulling around in my head for the last several days of how to dispell the negative ideas around people that are transgender after reading the appalling ways in which transgender people were talked about in my local newspaper. Since the Obama Administration signed an executive order that banned the discrimination of transgender… Continue reading Transgender Visibility

Bathroom Hysteria – Q&A

As I often do, I shared my post "Bathroom Hysteria" on another social network called Postwaves. From that posting I received a question from one of the members there asking if I thought that school locker rooms should be separated by gender. I feel like the question can be applied to any public facility like bathrooms… Continue reading Bathroom Hysteria – Q&A

Bathroom Hysteria

These bathroom laws aren’t going to protect anyone, it’s clear from the track record their aftermath is leaving that no woman, man or child is going to be safe. There has even been people to make noise about shooting anyone they think is transgender that they see going into the “wrong restroom”. These trigger happy people are more likely to shoot and kill a cis-gendered person than a transgender person, and why? They dared to use a public restroom. How far is the hatred and fear-mongering going to go? If we continue down this path I fear it will only be a matter of time before we end up in Hitleresque concentration camps, something that many people have already called for.

Out of Ignorance and Into my Pants: Bathroom Laws Against the Transgender Community

With the passing of North Carolina’s Bill HB2 into law, the war against the transgender community reached an all-time high, or rather low. The bill designates that no one shall be allowed to use a public restroom or gender specific facilities that does not match the biological gender on their birth certificate. The aim of… Continue reading Out of Ignorance and Into my Pants: Bathroom Laws Against the Transgender Community

LGBT Rights and Religion; It’s really about RESPECT.

An argument that my younger brother and I always seem to get into happens anytime I mention LBGT rights or anything that I work for that could be consider activism. I get the usual answer of “I don’t want that *insert random LGBT affiliated word here* shoved down my throat, which is generally his way… Continue reading LGBT Rights and Religion; It’s really about RESPECT.
