It seems that acknowledgment of my very existence hangs in the balance.
I’ll let the article speak for itself. Rather than go off into a rage or fear-induced tailspin, I will simply say this. Trans rights are human rights. Any attempt to marginalize human rights in any form has gone down in history as being not just a step backwards, but it is generally recorded as demonstrably evil. Allowing this to happen, either through active participation (i.e. voting for their party members) or by standing aside as being “not your fight” will ensure further encroachment and setbacks for all human rights. Legislation like this knows no limits.
As of now, Trump and his Republican supporters have declared war on my existence. As the kids say, shit just got real. Remember when you head to the polls for the mid-term election: a vote for the conservatives — the ones who used to claim limited government is a good thing — is now a vote against my life and freedom.
So much for any last remaining hope of a balance. The divisions between the parties have officially crossed the line of morality.
Choose your side. But choose wisely. And remember, come what may… I am still here.
