Welcome to #TransTuesday!

This week we discuss something super important for a lot of trans folks, and yet it so very often goes south and impacts us in so many ways:

CIS SPOUSAL AND PARTNER SUPPORT DURING TRANSITION.

Let's talk about what it looks like, and why it's so important... and what happens when we don't get it.

CIS FRIENDS I NEED YOU TO SHARE THIS WITH *YOUR* CIS FRIENDS.

Yesterday, the UK government used an obscure emergency process to make possession of puberty blockers for new treatment of trans kids illegal, and punishable by up to two years in prison. [1] There was no parliamentary debate, no vote, and no public consultation.

Parents of children on GIC waiting lists are being told by the NHS that if they don't bring their kids to an """assessment""" they risk being reported to Social Services.

The Good Law Project recognises that the NHS are behaving unethically, and is running a crowdfunder to seek urgent legal advice to challenge the NHS.

If you are looking for a good cause, the Good Law Project crowdfunder can be found here: goodlawproject.org/crowdfunder…

Happy Trans Day of Visibility everyone. I spent over 6 months writing and rewriting this article that I just published. Most of that time was spent debating whether or not to publish it.

I'm finally coming out; I'm trans. I hope this article helps.

Are #nonbinary #people #trans? The #answer isn’t clean-cut .

— As a somewhat #authoritative #source let me clarify that for you. The answer is Yes, non-binary people are trans.

GERMANY HAS PASSED SELF-ID LAWS!

The Federal Republic joins 20 countries which have passed laws allowing people to declare their own legal gender. I hope someday this will apply across the whole EU.

On a more personal level, this means I can finally change my own legal gender to #nonbinary 🎉🏳️‍⚧️

hey people who don’t speak german can you please boost this as well as those who do? german trans people need some attention on a specific issue (explained in more detail in the quoted post, in english)

und für die deutsche bubble, wer von euch hat gute kontakte zu #medien / #blogs / individuen mit einigermaßen reichweite, die thematisch im #queer*-bereich drin sind? das geht ja absolut gar nicht, dass ärzt*innen sich zusammentun und gängige behandlungsrichtlinien so dreist übergehen. scheinbar läuft das jetzt auch schon mehrere monate so. ich für meinen teil hab davon nichts gehört und ich finde mich ja eigentlich relativ gut eingebunden, was aktuelle #trans*-themen in DE betrifft. hier müssen wir als community definitiv mal kräftig den finger draufdrücken, alter schwede

On this #TransDayOfVisiblity, I want to specifically highlight Bernie Wagenblast.

She is one of the famous announcer voices for New York City's Metropolitan Transit Authority! (See video for demonstration)

From her wikipedia page: Bernie Wagenblast is a transportation journalist, radio personality and voice-over artist. She is the founder and editor of the Transportation Communications Newsletter. She also edits The AASHTO Daily Transportation Update, published by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, and hosts AASHTO's ETAP Podcast and the ITE Talks Transportation podcast for the Institute of Transportation Engineers.

Trans folks putting the 'trans' in public transit!

So today is #TransDayOfVisibility. As a cis person I'm going to challenge my fellow cis people to make a visible difference to #trans people's lives today.

Buy a trans friend a coffee. Bake them a cake. Invite them round for dinner. Offer to babysit for them. Anything you can do to make their life a bit easier. Don't have any trans friends? Think about why that is...

Or find some trans people on hashtags like #MutualAidRequest #TransMutualAid etc. and fling some money at them, if you have some to spare.

Or set up a regular donation to a trans-led organisation doing good work, such as @tsn via ko-fi.com/transsafetynetwork/


Hi! I'm Danny Redwoods. I'm a kinky queer trans guy who makes porn. I'm into bdsm primarily, but my kinks run deep and wide and are always expanding.

Besides kinks, right now I'm into comedy (in all forms), horror/thriller, fashion/style, Hazbin Hotel, Cyberpunk 2077, youtube, Jerma985, weed, and the Real Housewives.

Here is a study being done of adult neopronoun users.

tumblr.com/allthingslinguistic…

You'll get paid USD$15 for the interview. Filling out the form is just expressing interest, you can still decline the interview. They're also asking if you have a friend or "buddy" they can interview, as in they'll be asking questions about you I presume. You must be fluent in English.

Looks like the person conducting the study is a "cool" linguist who's done other neat studies that someone goes on to link to in the thread I've linked above. :3

I technically use neopronouns, so I might fill out the form to express interest, though I'm uncertain who I would reference as a "buddy" for them to interview too. But that might not be necessary.

Apparently the BBC (UK) has had 144 complaints about a recent episode of #DoctorWho because it contained an openly #trans character.

I'm going to make a complaint to the BBC that there weren't enough #transgender characters in Doctor Who. I would love if 144 other people did the same thing. Here's the link: bbc.co.uk/contact/complaints/m…

(For your easy reference: "The Star Beast" aired on 25/11/2023, BBC One, and the trans character is called Rose.)

Reply when you've done it, so we can count us all. When we get to 145, everyone... gets a free BLÅHAJ? 🦈

Edit: 2 days later, mission successful: 159 complaints/comments submitted, and still climbing! A *huge* thank you everyone - stay tuned for hopefully some freedom of information requests!


Oakland trans woman had to remain closeted for years to get work in taquerias. She managed to get gender affirming care, and then realized her dream and bought a taco truck. She opened two months ago. Now, her taco truck has been stolen, and apparently her insurance company won't cover the loss. If you have a few bucks to share to help a trans woman of color recover her business after this devastating loss, click this link to the GoFundMe her friend set up for her. gofundme.com/f/miss-chiles-eny…

Really terrible news for #transgender people out of a 6th circuit court this morning. Details here: open.substack.com/pub/erininth…

Erin summarized this via TikTok as well, saying: “A federal appeals court […] ruled that a #GenderAffirmingCare #ban in Tennessee can take effect. This overrules a lower-level judge. To do so they cite the #Dobbs #abortion decision that allowed abortion to be banned, stating that gender-affirming care and #trans people


Oh my God. PLEASE do not get on Meta's new competitor for Twitter.

It harvests mucho data including our health data.

You cannot opt out.

I have just read the Interview with Georg Romer from University Hospital Münster in "Süddeutsche Zeitung" titled "Wait and See is Not an Option!"

He is a child and young adult psychiatrist. The interview is really very long.

But the gist is that this Georg Romer is really one of the Saints that we wish for.

The questions asked by the newspaper were great, mentioning all the controversy in society, asking tough questions (but in a very respectful manner), asking things like "what about the impression that transition numbers just exploded and that this is 'fashionable' at the moment" and so on.

During the interview Alexander Knote from LMU Munich was also mentioned aht Georg Romer was asked why he refused to talk / discuss with Alexander Knote.

In essence, A. Knote says that "coming out as trans gender has become fashionable among the AFAB." He then continues to prove that by showing that in Germany 85% of trans gender people AFAB trans men.

Georg Romer takes that as data and looks at "why is that so" in a different way. He analyses the societal environment and comes to the conlusing that the actual number of trans woman is significantly higher than the 15% but the fact that trans women have a significantly higher chance of being discriminated against, hated, or even experience violence is the actual reason why we don't see more trans women coming out. And yes, contrary to A. Knote, Georg Romer has scientific data on that.

A few machine translated excerpts:
---
Some of your colleagues report that young people are becoming more and more demanding and doctors are called transphobic if they do not immediately accept being trans as given without question. Do you experience that too?

Not at all. If we want to avoid an escalation of sensitivities in the doctor-patient relationship, it starts with ourselves. We must understand and respect that there is already a long history of discrimination, pathologization and bullying of trans people in medicine at every first encounter. I think the young people immediately feel the attitude and agenda with which they are met.

So it is the responsibility of the doctors how well the young people cooperate?

We doctors have to get away from the idea that we define whether someone is trans or not. It starts with the speech in the waiting room. I always ask first of all with which name someone would like to be addressed. With this, I do not determine anything for the future, but I signal: I see you, I respect you, I listen to you.
...
---
At the end he says:
I also think of a sentence in a letter that the mother of a 13-year-old trans boy once wrote to us: Without the treatment, we would steal the boy's youth. Every person deserves the chance to remember a happy youth for the rest of their lives. If we force young people to live through these years in the wrong sex, then this hardship of the children is in every class photo, in every memory of a school trip that you still had to experience in the old sex. People who only begin their transition as adults often eras these years of youth in their memory. That's very sad. A coherent identity, even in youth, contributes to the happiness of life.
---
The interview is here: if you can get it free and want to read it in your language, I guess you need a machine translation
