There is ENORMOUS outpouring of support from all over the place indicating the tide has turned. More and more people are supporting you, transgender folks. If you’re still wallowing in negative stories, there’s no better time than now to start examining them.
Trans-loving men (you trans-attracted and transamorous ones), there’s no reason for you to remain in hiding. The women you love are increasingly being not only defended, but supported by larger members of society.
Even in the midst of turmoil under Trump, that turmoil has not silenced the support outpouring. It has done the exact opposite. Check it out:
- In addition to military members suing over the White House’s Transgender ban proposed policy, now three former military service secretaries have joined in the suit
- Defense Secretary James Mattis, who I personally worked for in the Marines when he was a major, is on your side too. If you haven’t read already, he has essentially put the ban on major review, effectively halting any action on the draft policy for some time. This is unprecedented.
- Of course, the American Civil Liberties Union is on your side too. They are joining the same suit the military secretaries have joined.
All across America, people are fighting for your rights. In Texas, the dreaded bathroom bill collapsed again, due in part not only to families of transgender people, but, get this, republican legislative leaders. I’m not making this up. Meanwhile, this awesome camp for transgender youth is getting tons of media coverage as an early-stage refuge for these young pioneers. Here’s another doing the same thing.
Here’s a lawyer fighting for the community on his own.
And even Richard Simmons is getting in on the act in his own weird way.
You can choose where to put your focus. But where you choose to put it has a profound effect on your personal life. If I were you, I’d focus on all the good coming your way. Celebrate it, tell your friends about it, Facebook about it, and see how your life gets better.
