Identity Theft: The “Trans” Con

While I don’t agree with everything you write here (just because liberal/progressive politics allows for sublimate groups to voice their issues does not mean that it promotes a culture of victimhood), you make a number of points that resonate. It often feels that those of us who do ‘medically transition’ (which generally means we who fall into the transsexual/binary part of the Venn diagram) are not part of the ‘trans’ conversation and it sometimes feels like we are explicitly sidelined because our truth is not quite germane to the current narrative.

I shouldn’t be made to feel bad for writing my narrative or expressing my truth. Those who want others to accept them as they are should not turn and point at others and criticize them for how they exist.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
