Why transgender rights are the civil rights thermometer no one can afford to ignore | HelloGiggles

Why transgender rights are the civil rights thermometer no one can afford to ignore | HelloGiggles:

“It’s not as if transgender rights weren’t being undermined before Donald Trump shuffled into the White House, but under his watch, things are definitely getting worse for the community. The Obama White House and Justice Department had stood up for transgender rights and put in place some protections for them, but within just the past few months, transgender rights have become the civil rights thermometer we all really can’t ignore.”

Transgender Agendas, Social Contagion, Peer Pressure, and Prevalence

Transgender Agendas, Social Contagion, Peer Pressure, and Prevalence:

“There has been a rash of anti-transgender articles published in the UK press over the last couple of weeks (I have no desire to link to them, but you can read rebuttals here and here and here). They warn readers about ‘transgender zealots’ pushing ‘transgender agendas’ designed to coerce young children into becoming transgender, and they are full of fear-mongering over ‘children sacrificed to appease trans lobby,’ and claims that ‘transgenderism has become ‘an industry’.’ These pieces, written from a politically conservative and blatantly trans-antagonistic standpoint, share something in common with their supposedly ‘trans-friendly’ counterparts: You know, the articles that start out by acknowledging that transgender people exist and should not face persecution, but then pivot (under the guise of scientific and/or journalistic objectivity) to the possibility that some (perhaps many?!) children who socially transition may not be ‘really transgender.’ These latter pieces will likely cite statistics about desistance, point to instances of people detransitioning, and/or raise the possibility that the apparent increase in transgender children may be due to ‘peer pressure’ or ‘social contagion.’”

‘I’ve Seen A Lot Of People Die’: Health Care System Overlooks Many Trans People : Shots – Health News : NPR

‘I’ve Seen A Lot Of People Die’: Health Care System Overlooks Many Trans People : Shots – Health News : NPR:

“Corado pointed to one crucial word in the study that deserves extra emphasis. ‘What does regular health care mean?’ she asked, then answered the question herself: ‘Preventable.’

Preventable problems, including HIV infection and some cancers, kill many people in this community. It’s harder for transgender people to find health care coverage, because it’s harder for them to find jobs. Social stigmas aside, consider the difficulty of getting hired if your gender does not appear to match the one on your legal ID. According to the 2015 U.S. Transgender Study, transgender people face an unemployment rate three times as high as the national average — 15 percent versus 5 percent.”
