It’s screwed up what’s going on

A friend made a good point yesterday, and here’s what he said on Facebook:

Everyone is upset Trump blocked trans people from enlisting. I agree he did it as a political move to spite the LGBT and appease Dr w è#tt. Examples include:

  • Any history of depression, anxiety or suicidal thoughts.
  • Any history of mood altering medication (including for ADHD)
  • EeDCAny dietary allergy
  • Any history of using a psychiatrist for more than six months
  • Diabetes
  • IBS
  • Color blindness
  • Pretty much any condition which requires regular medication.

The sad truth is that the psych requirements already ban most trans people, as well as a large portion of my feed who take any sort of medication. I agree Trump is doing this just to screw trans people, but in all honesty they were screwed before this anyway.” — Joe

And Joe isn’t wrong.. Being transgender is an alienating experience, and a dangerous one. The only statistic higher than our murder rate, is the number of trans people that enlist compared to cisgender individuals; we’re brave.

Stay brave friends, because this is only a speed bump, on a long road.
