  1. There is simply no accountability. The media and pop culture hawkers all feel like they can say and do as they please becuase nobody will hold them accountable. If you look at the ways that trans-persons have been mishandled or outed in the media, without any legal repurcussions, it should show you the cruxt of the problem. One of the Wachowski sister was essentially blackmailed into an interview at risk of being outed without her side of the story. And the media got a free pass for it.

    How many trans-folk have been repeatedly misgendered? Happens all of the time, most of the time intentionally. But again, zero accountability.

    The bathroom debate, to which there really should be no debate, had dragged us through the proverbial mud. Everyone and their homophobic brother suddenly thinks its their business to know whats in our panties, feel like its their obligation to debate our rights to simply use a restroom, and as if thats not enough, now we are being equated with pedophiles in order to spark fear of the trans-woman in the stall next to you.

    Society is content with putting us at the back of the bus at every turn. They are content to keep making us the dirty little secret, the butt of the joke, the variety show stereotype.

    Its going to take a monumental change to make things right; there may still be pockets of resistence, hate, and bigotry. But something has to change.

    Ever & Always,
    Cadence
