This man is misleading and dangerous.

Of Politics, Science, and Gender Identity: A Review of Paul McHugh:
“AT 86, PAUL R. MCHUGH could have opted for a quiet retirement. Instead, the Johns Hopkins psychiatrist has stepped further into the culture wars, arguing that common narratives about gender and sexual orientation may be wrong, that people aren’t ‘born this way,’ and that medical interventions for transgender people are experimental, misleading, and even dangerous.”

What Transgender Women Need to Know About Their Prostate Cancer Risk | SELF:
“It’s pretty well known that prostate cancer is a disease that should be on every man’s radar. After all, it’s the most common cancer among American men, and an estimated 161,360 new cases of the disease are expected to be diagnosed this year, according to the American Cancer Society.

Government Survey Change May Affect Transgender Seniors | Money:
“Today David Satin goes by the name of Barbara Satin. And at 83, she’s making the most of her final years. She works as a transgender activist, helping other people like her come out and find support.

Transgender bathroom rule won’t be on fall ballot; group seeking rollback fails to get enough signatures | The Seattle Times:
” Voters this November won’t be seeing a ballot measure seeking to roll back Washington’s transgender bathroom and locker room rule.
The group supporting the initiative canceled its appointment to submit petitions Friday afternoon, and said it did not have enough signatures to make the ballot.

I’m feeling lost. I’ve reached the point where not living as myself is becoming dangerously stressful yet looking at living full time poises some serious road blocks. The biggest being my legal documents are in my dead name and the wrong gender which makes getting work difficult at best. Also, it is looking as though medical transition isn’t an option due to cost which leaves me in limbo both physically and mentally.
I just don’t know if this is worth it anymore.
