I'm trans, I'm American and I'm terrified of going home
CBC News ^ | 11/04/18 | Sam Harper*

I am terrified.

I am a citizen by birth of the United States, an activist, a writer, a Boston Red Sox fan.

I am also transgender.

And as a transgender person, I'm terrified. I'm terrified because my country's government is proposing to erase my existence.

We recently learned of the Trump administration's proposed definition of gender — a proposal that would exclude trans people from federal recognition, and potentially many civil rights protections.

This definition could have severe consequences. Under this definition, I could be denied access to the medication I need. I could be denied housing and work, and discriminated against legally based on the fact that my gender does not match the "F" on my passport.

I’m straight, American, and terrified of using a Target restroom.

I've lost track ... how many millions of transgenders have we sent to the death camps so far?

No one is proposing to erase your existence, snowflake. We are no longer willing to allow mentally ill people to erase our culture and values though.

If that’s a problem please stay away.

Nonsense. Your country's government is proposing to quit pandering to your delusions.

OFFS! The usual 🐂💨💩 spread like wildfire by the lame stream. Don't worry honey, you'll be on the same boat with all the AAs being sent back to Africa. Or one of the many detention camps all over the country. SMDH!

Maybe it can go live in a Muslim country instead.
Muslims are all about letting “live and let live”.
Sarcasm.....

Cry me a river, little boy/r\girl/whatever.
We really do not give an Obama who you are pretending to be that day.
Get over it.
But, play boy games in the girl’s room while one of our daughters is in there, we will definitely care.
And so will you.

Global warming is real because it's settled science.

You never changed your chromosomes and therefore never changed your gender; it's settled science.

No, the hormonal medication you WANT, not need.
