I found power in accepting the truth of who I am. It may not be a truth that others can accept, but I cannot live any other way. How would it be to live a lie every minute of your life?
If you say we are the same. Why do you then want to be treated differently and special ? If you say you are different. Why do you want to change me to be like you ?
Gays and Lesbians don't want to be accepted or to be accommodated. They want to take over and to rule the world. They want power so they can change everything and everyone to their own definition and standards. Now they are identifying the key points and taking over major platforms that influence their behavior and lifestyle to others. You can't disagree with them on anything .If you do. You are homophobic. They want to be treated the same , but special. They are on a mission to take over , to control and to change everything. They want to accept the things and people they are but they want to be accepted the way they are.
Being told you are not who you know yourself to be is trauma [page 321]
Many youth who come out in adolescence report not having a strong sense of gender during preschool, kindergarten, or elementary school. Young children are physically fairly gender neutral. If a six-year-old wears girls' cloths and grows long hair, she will be seen as a girl. If the same child cuts their hair and wears boys' people will assume he is a boy. Its only with secondary sex characteristics such as breast, facial hair, and a deeper voice that clothed bodies become more clearly male or female. As a result, gender may not have seemed particularly important for some trans children. It is the onset of puberty and the increased ways they are sexed/gendered in the world that typically precipitate the emergence of adolescent onset gender dysphoria. [page 90]
Also, I had read a book called She's Not There: A Life in Two Genders, written by a professor who had gone through transgender surgery, but it took this person well into his thirties to come to terms with the absolute necessity of having to do it.
Seeing states like North Carolina enacting these bathroom bills that are banning transgender individuals from using the restrooms they identify as... it's complete discrimination.
I think being a teenager is a difficult journey in and of itself, but being transgender makes it that much harder.
Everyone has people in their lives that are gay, lesbian or transgender or bisexual. They may not want to admit it, but I guarantee they know somebody.
I strongly support the rights of transgender individuals. I will not denigrate or deny their struggles.
I don't think we should be discriminating against anyone. Transgender people are people and deserve the best we can do for them.
Whenever you tell a group of people that they can't use bathrooms, or they can't access spaces that other people use, that is dehumanizing. It is discriminatory, and it reinforces the stigma and the prejudices that the transgender community already faces.
These kids at the Ali Forney Center are literally dumped by their families because of the fact that they are lesbian, gay, or transgender - this organization really is saving lives.
Before any American points a finger at President Putin and calls him nasty names, they should recognize that a lot of Americans agree with Putin on his stance against homosexual and transgender people.
The Left has pushed immorality to the point we have so-called 'same-sex marriage' and 'transgender' nonsense trampling the rights of Christians.
A lot of insurance companies don't protect transgender people because they think it's medically unnecessary, but we deserve to be covered, and this is life-saving treatment.
There are so few books for little kids that actually mention the word transgender and explain what it is in simple terms.
Transgender casting is a kind of literalism. It is the same with racial casting. This means that you can now only play Othello if you are black. There is something quite tainted about it. It is a form of racism in itself.
During my sophomore year at American University, I was elected president of the student body. At the same time, I was struggling with my identity and whether or not to come out as transgender.
