Much has been written, most of it spot on, about Trump’s anti-transgender agenda since the ‘leaked’ memo was published by the New York Times Sunday.
And yes Trump is using us as political pawns to foment hate during the midterms promising electorates that he’ll ‘erase’ us by redefining Title IV with a ‘narrow legal definition of sex’. But there’s an end game.
When it’s all said and done this racist white nationalist wants to kill each and every one of us.
And like the cowards that they are they always attack children first. The New York Times reported that the narrower definition would be acutely felt in schools and their most visible battlegrounds: locker rooms and bathrooms.
The Department of Health and Human Services is overseeing an effort to establish a legal definition of sex under Title IX, the federal law that bans gender discrimination in education programs that receive government funding, The New York Times reported Sunday.
Most every transgender person had an epiphany, a sudden and striking realization after decades of denial, we had a choice, transition or die. Most of us who are still alive today chose life and have benefited greatly by the evolution of society allowing us to integrate and in many cases thrive.
Those of us who transition decades ago did so at great peril. Many of us lost our jobs, family and became disenfranchised from church and society. Many of us have been murdered, and with increasing frequency, the past few years being records numbers.
According to tdor.translivesmatter.info there has been a record 38 transgender people murdered in the USA and 352 worldwide between 1 Oct 2017 and 30 Sept. 2018.
Trump doesn’t just want to turn the clock back to when the word ‘transgender’ wasn’t mentioned. He wants to change the constitution possibly eliminating the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
It’s what white nationalists do.
