An estimated nearly 1 million trans people are eligible to vote in the 2020 general election. However, 42% of these voters do not have identification that matches their gender identity. Trans people have been turned away from the polls when their presentation didn’t match the name and gender marker on their ID (such as a … Continue reading Transgress Voter Suppression
“Oh since you’re trans, you know what it’s like to be both a boy and a girl!” Incorrect. Sure, I have insight into the male world in that I know what locker room talk is, I know all their expectations and did in fact conform to a lot of them. I butched up hard in … Continue reading No, I Haven’t Seen Both Sides
It puts the transphobia on it’s Twitter or else it gets the hose again. You might have heard of JK Rowling’s new book “Troubled Blood” that’s earned her the hashtag #ripjkrowling. While she’s in fact not dead, her talent evidently is. This book follows a crossdressing serial killer who lures victims while in female attire. … Continue reading How JK Rowling’s “Silence of the Pet Detective” Should Have Ended
Just a reminder for trans people who say they’re “fully transitioned” because they’ve had SRS, and for cis people who ask if we’re “fully transitioned” (translation: “have you had the surgery yet?”) – transition is not linear. Not every trans person wants surgery. Not every trans person even wants HRT, for that matter. Transitioning is … Continue reading What Exactly is “Fully Transitioned”?

I’ve met a number of transgender people who fear that they are going against God by transitioning. The fear that God made them one gender, so who are they to go against that? Like if they accepted that they’re trans, then they’d be saying that God made a mistake. Except that literally no major religion … Continue reading Is Transitioning Going Against God or Whatever?
The LGBT community has one of the largest homeless populations in the US. However, many of us aren’t allowed in established shelters, many of which are run by religious organizations and are therefore legally allowed to discriminate against us. Transgender women in particular have died on the streets and been sexually assaulted in men’s shelters due to … Continue reading Why We Need LGBT Shelters
For all the fear about trans women invading women’s prisons, over 40% of transgender people face sexual assault in prisons, and are five times more likely to be sexually assaulted by prison staff than cisgender inmates are. A transgender woman in Colorado was placed in a disciplinary pod along with 4 men who had previously threatened to rape her. She … Continue reading Gender Incongruent Prisons are Dangerous for Trans Women

We humans created language to be able to better communicate with each other and because of this, our language is constantly e v o l v i n g just as … Continue reading Why Language is So Important
The Actual Numbers A meta analysis of 28 studies published in Clinical Endocrinology showed that after sexual reassignment surgery, “80% of individuals with GID reported significant improvement in gender dysphoria; 78% reported significant improvement in psychological symptoms; 80% reported significant improvement in quality of life; and 72% reported significant improvement in sexual function”. A similar … Continue reading Addressing the Detransitioner Myth
