I read something today that disturbed me on far too many levels. I am of course talking about this particular article.
Go ahead and read it (all of it) I can wait.
Well Canada (Transport Canada to be specific) you’ve gone and done it again! Which is essentially offend me (and countless others) with your bullshit fuckery! This is also, allegedly new. WHY?!?
What exactly is the point of this? I have several pre and post op TG friends. I love them all to pieces, I think they’re awesome. Also, they’re some of the most tolerant, open minded, understanding people I have ever had the pleasure to deal with. In spite of the hardships I’ve seen them face first hand. So now you need to add this into the mix as well?
There are no words for how I feel about this right now, NONE!
So that being said, help fight the good fight. If human rights are to be respected, it should include everyone regardless of who you are, or what gender you identify with.
Here’s what you can do (taken from the blog post I linked to in the beginning of this post):
- Find your MP (member of parliament) and chew their ass out.
- Contact the minister of transportation and chew his ass out.
- Sign the petition to tell Harper
that he’s a total douchebagto allow TG people on airplanes
- Join the facebook group À bas l’interdiction aérienne transphobe—Against Canada’s trans flight ban to help take a stand and to get more information regarding this issue.
To all my TG friends, I’m sorry that in spite of all the struggles you face and the BS you need to put up with that yet another one has gotten dumped on your plate. <3
