[Serious] That Trans Thread
#1
That Trans Thread
In light of recent discussions on the forum, and in light of the broader societal conversations going on in the country right now, I thought it would be a good idea to dedicate a thread to gender identity affirmation and trans-affirming news. I’ll go first:


“Colorado now requires private health insurance plans to cover gender-affirming care for trans people like facial bone remodeling and hormone therapy.”

https://www.npr.org/2021/10/14/104614032...ealth-insu
Nay_Sayer: “Nothing is impossible if you dream big enough, or in this case, nothing is impossible if you use a barrel of KY Jelly and a miniature horse.”

Wiser words were never spoken.

RE: That Trans Thread
As a transgender female, I am hardly noticed when in one of my full skirts, tee, sunglasses and sandals, but, when wearing jeans & a teeshirt, I have had cars stop at intersections for excessive periods of time to gawk at me, cars drive by slowly, people yell slurs at me on a few occasions, and one slap to my head from a moving vehicle (which I posted about here.)

If I ever stop posting here, know that someone either killed me or I died suddenly from some medical condition.
And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)

I saw where you posted this before, and I'd really like that people acted better. Fat chance for all the people in the world that that is going to happen.  Dodgy
If you get to thinking you’re a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else’s dog around.

I don't think that such individuals are bad, just on the wrong side of history. Like phrenology and racial bigotry, discrimination against gender nonconforming individuals is destined for the historical trashbins, eventually.

I hope you're right. We seem to be regressing in that and many other regards.

Of course they're bad people. We can't ever properly progress if we keep applying apologetics to their ignorance.

Anyone who wants to abolish the rights, that they themselves take for granted, for others not like them, is not a good human being.

Equality is for everyone, not just the select.

The same thing happened with voting rights, which were given to women by certain states only to be taken away and restored later on. Transgenders, gays and other "nonconformers" have been around since the dawn of humanity; we are not going to disappear. I do not believe that Western law is going to be able to accommodate institutionalized discrimination against us. If it is one thing that Republicans value, it is money, and a lot of companies are going to refuse to do business with public bigots, even if they are bigots themselves, in private.
