My LGBTQ Center Passed a Special Resolution About the Anti-Trans Legislations in motion now

I am a member of the San Gabriel Valley LGBTQ Center, in Arcadia Calif.  We just had a special Ad Hoc board meeting to approve a position statement on the pending legislation against Trans Children and their Parents: 

 

Quote

 

To: Our Center Membership, Service Communities and their Public Leaders, and our neighboring LGBTQ Communities.

 

From: The Board of Directors of the San Gabriel Valley LGBTQ Center.

 

Re: Health & Safety of Transgender Children and Youth legislative attacks in other states.

 

There is legislation pending in 20 U.S. States that seeks to deny proven and safe Mental and Physical health services and treatments for Gender Variant children and teenage youth.  The measures range from exclusion from school sports activities, outlawing the mental health counseling related to being gender variant, and access to proven medications for relief of the stress of being Trans or Non Binary in the years of puberty.  There is proposed legislation in several states to classify the acceptance of a Trans child’s needs by parents who seek medical assistance or permit social Transitioning of the child as Child Abuse that can result in the child being forcibly removed from the parent’s home for the purpose of curing the child from gender variance.  These same attempts at curing are the ones applied with no success and much physical and emotional harm to LGB people over the years.

 

It is the Board’s position that those actions are being done out of unreasoned hatred for Trans people and their supporters who save the lives of these children by their open and loving acceptance and not out of documented health science evidence of harm actually being done to them.   We therefor ask all those addressed in this letter and their friends and colleagues to oppose actions to deny health care for Trans and all LGBTQ persons, wherever they live and actions that threaten participation by Trans and other LGBTQ children in normal life experiences, and which legislate a normal human condition as being the result of child abuse against all medical findings.  

 

There are two Trans people on the Board and we are taking care of OUR members.  I hope it helps bring awareness to our local communities.  I do encourage all of you to find your local LGBTQ centers and get involved with it since we need active members to keep on keeping on.

This is a hopeful effort, @VickySGV.  The letter is very well thought out and your LGBTQ center’s position in the statement really can’t get much clearer than it is. Thank you for your support for our younger community members. What’s happening to trans youth rights in those 20 States a complete travesty.

 

Thank You,

Susan R🌷

      It's pretty clear that Republican state governments don't fear, or even take notice of, the Biden administration's policies. It looks like the Republican State governments feel they have to move quick while they still have a 6-3 scotus conservative majority until the Dems pack the courts (within the next year probably) to even things up a bit.

      Totally relate. I was locked up in a psychoward ran by Mormons when I was 12-17 years old...sex was used as currency. ...Feel kinda lucky some days that I didn't really know I was being raped. ...Other days I just feel sick and wanna blow my brains out. ...Most days though, I just want....revenge. I guess I kinda had an epiphany one day: I'm not the one who deserves to die. ...Neither are you.  Hang in there. This too shall pass. *big hugz*

      Kimber, I agree with Jackie, your parents were very accepting and supportive. Especially given that society was so different and so much less accepting back 25 years ago. Your parents loved the real YOU so much. It is a wonderful story.   Life would’ve been so much easier for many of us here if our parents could embrace our real identities. I am so glad yours embraced and accepted you so unconditionally. It sounds like an amazing experience.   I’m so sorry to hear that you had lost two siblings within a year back then. That must have been such a difficult period of your life. I can’t even imagine experiencing that kind of loss in such a short time period. We all have different crosses to bear. No journey through life is an easy one.   *Hugs* Susan R🌷

      This is a one of your colors Linda Marie. Your dress really looks nice with the shoes too. Hard to match outfits that close without a large collection. You can NEVER have too many pairs.😉

      I don’t wanna go back to a mental hospital. That place still terrifies me. Even more bad memories.

      If you are having this bad a time, it may be necessary for you to go to a hospital or an urgent care provider and see if they can provide you with some medication to help your anxiety about the memories.  You may have to cut your vacation short to deal with this, or maybe it is the vacation environment triggering you.  Please go and get some professional help before you feel compelled to hurt yourself.

      Looking lovely LM. Kaltia Bras are a constant problem with me too. Lacey bras are so pretty but the lace chaffs my skin. Sport bras I wear a lot just because the seem to hold everything in place just fine. My nice bras I save for special occasions.

      I can’t stop remembering. I’m on vacation. I need to relax. I want it to stop. I can’t forget about what he did. I keep trying to make myself forget with things like overdosing, but it doesn’t work anymore. The memories are so loud. I don’t know how to stop this.

      I loved getting my pierced. I love all the earrings I have especially the dangly ones. I feel just a little more myself.

      If I remember correctly, I was told trying to diet in a manner where you lose ten pounds then gain ten pounds then lose ten pounds again will help fat redistribution occur much more quickly; been meaning to try this out.

      Something similar happened to me, same ages. I feel the same way, almost all the time. I understand how rough it is. Luckily, I was able to get away from him about a year ago, but what he did still haunts me. I hate it so much.
