A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.
~Gerald R. Ford
Many transgender women have been murdered since November20th. The vast majority are women of color. We are getting bashed on many sides. It seems that many folks' sensibilities about what a woman or man should look like have been disturbed.
Transgender women are women. Transgender men are men. We bleed just like anybody else. We want to live happy, productive lives. Trans people have been in existence since time began. We are more visible now, thus the attacks and ridicule.
I chose to live my life openly 15 years ago and have never been happier. Many transgender and non-binary people are out and I'm happy to see this. More will do so. While there will be pushback, we will NOT be made invisible.
