International Day for Trans Depathologization

That certainly is a mouthful as well as being something you have no doubt never heard of before...but it is the 8th annual IDfTP. There is a manifesto and everything.

This is deemed a "global event to raise awareness about the limitations that abusive and discriminatory medical models place on transgender people’s basic rights."

Slow news day

I woke up with a headache. The day has so far not improved much. In the background I am working on an essay for the upcoming 25th anniversary of beginning my transition. But that is still a dozen days away.

So I did my morning Google search for news of the transgender community and it was mostly the same old same old. Trump's transgender ban, dead-naming, what transgender person has most recently gone public? What school parents have most recently expressed outrage that transgender people exist?

White nationalist pepper-sprays transgender person in Asbury Park

Allie Koralik is a non-binary, transgender resident of Long Branch, NJ. Koralik was making signs Sunday at a gallery on the boardwalk in Asbury Park for a Stand Against Hate rally when they were approached by Morris May, 22 of Scotch Plains and his 20-year-old brother, who were carrying a Trump 2020 sign.

My brother and I are both hard-core conservatives I support three things: liberty, free speech and the Republican Party.

--May

An argument ensued and then Morris May sprayed pepper spray in Koralik's face.

Shining light on pseudo-science

An Arizona man who appears to be a parent of a transgender child has posted an essay at Tucson.com.

The debate surrounding the Pima County Board of Supervisors resolution to ban paid conversion therapy seems to have been taken by some as an opportunity to question the legitimacy of transgender and gender non-binary identities as a whole.

23 years ago today

It is the 23rd anniversary of my gender confirmation surgery, which was performed by Dr. Eugene Schrang at Theda Clark Medical Center in Neenah, WI. Dr. Schrang is now retired, but then, so am I.

That's about all the celebrating I shall do on account of the event.

Yesterday, a letter was sent to our less-than esteemed leader.

Dear President Trump,
