So, i read this awful article using bathroom “scare tactics,” which was claiming that trans women are potential rapists. “Men” who dress as women to gain access to women only spaces and force them self on women. This really upset me and i had a bit of a Twitter rant. They were read by others and i was urged to post them in other media also, so i am posting them here. (Edited together in easy reading format from top to bottom.)
This is the link in the first tweet about how there are no cases of a trans woman attacking a cis woman in public restrooms: Link 1.
This is the link in the second tweet about the cases where trans people are assaulted in the bathroom by cis people: Link 2.
I’m truly beginning to embrace to who I am, and it’s a marvelous feeling. A large part of that feeling comes from having so many of my friends and family that accept me for who I am - something I would always have been terrified wouldn’t happen when I lived back in the South. To those who I have shared my most person secret, and who have accepted me as I am with open arms: thank you for all of your love and support.
At this point, I’m really just getting started in my adventures. You can reach out to me on Kik if you just want to chat!
