New trans life line offers hope when suicide seems the only option

Dealing with discrimination is a bitch. There’s bias in every facet of our lives. At home, school, at work, doctor’s offices and even in social scenes as we try to relax.

The Doxxing of TERF Linda Shanko alias GullusMag and GenderTrender

Any trans person who has spent anytime on Twitter or the blogosphere will at some point be confronted, confounded and insulted by a TERFF (Trans Exclusionary Radial Faux Feminist). Some have even killed themselves afterwards. TERFF’s  hiding behind a mask of fake feminism have anonymously terrorized and outed the trans community for years. But that’s not […]
