Texas Congressional Candidate "Uncomfortable" Around Trans Students

To be fair, I'm not comfortable around Texas Republicans either

It is so heart-warming that this Texas congressional candidate thinks she just has the most perfect vision and deserves to be elected. It makes you wonder how much she really cares about the kids she is teaching. I can imagine her ripping into some poor kid who is different and then mocking the kid later. The other thing that is amazing is how many of these narcissists go running around trying to prove they are in someway "tougher" because they do not like anybody who is different. 

 

Either on a local, regional, state, or national level, you have to shake your head at the dismal state of politics in this country. Are folks like this, truly allowed to be candidates? I wonder. This woman is supposed to have an education...

There were highly educated Nazis that committed atrocities. I wish knowledge led to morals and ethics.

Erica,

 

You raise a great point. It is a sad commentary though. I just cringe thinking of some child trying to go to a teacher for some help and support, then having that cold, hard attitude tearing the child apart. I do not know what the answers are.

I know not all texans are bad people, but as someone on the outside looking in, does anything good ever come from Texas?  Over the last year or so I've watched as Texas tried to interfere in our elections in Michigan, as they did all they could to take away the right (and duty) to vote from minorities, as they tried to end-run around the constitution and supreme court  with the anti-abortion law, as young kids had to get up in front of their legislature to defend their own existences and now we have former teachers saying they didn't understand why it was wrong to allow other kids to make fun of trans kids, and this is just the stuff I remember...

It is such a pity that we have become such an easy target for political hate speech.  There has always been a history of belittling others for political gain instead of finding a way to move towards an inclusive society designed to support all.

Hate is too easily brought to folks.

 

Hugs,

Dangerous generalization. I’m from Texas. And you know what? It’s not nearly as bad here as the media would have you believe.

No they didn’t. 


Why is it we can expect an ID to drive, to fly, to open a checking account, to stay at a hotel, to buy alcohol, buy a firearm… but not to vote?

fair enough, "does anything good ever come from texas" was a bit of hyperbole and does make an unfair generalization.  Hard not to get angry though, when what those of us outside texas do hear are things like the governor is ordering parents of trans kids to be hunted down and prosecuted for child abuse.  It did come out later that a court did block that order so I do have hope that reason will prevail.

 

as for voter ID, that's not specifically what I was talking about (I agree you should need an ID of some kind to vote).  It was the actions taken to severely limit access to polling places and by fighting to eliminate the ability to vote by absentee ballot during peak covid.  From everything I had read at the time most of the places heavily affected by those efforts were largely minority populations.  republican lawmakers did the same thing in ohio and I recall some tried to do it here in michigan as well if that helps make it less of a texas-specific issue.  So  perhaps that particular thing was unfair as well since that is more of a republican politician thing.

 

So I do apologize for being a bit hyperbolic and snarky and for attributing an issue that is occurring across the country to texas in particular.  I'm sure the only news people hear about michigan are that we all want to kidnap the governor and that there are more pot dispensaries than grocery stores in our cities (this is kind of true in places).

It's the hardcore weirdoes that get the press.

Same with NC.

Yeah… this was the subject of at least 1.5 of my trans support group meetings. At first I thought he was just shooting his mouth off. Then I found out he actually put out an order.

 

And though it’s already being challenged, two major hospitals have already begun turning patients away.

 

That is infuriating. I’d sure love to know when “dead kids” became preferable to “trans kids.”

You should have seen the sea of people in line for testing, or at sporting events, or shopping.

 

I’d say voting is easily more important than any of those things.

True.  Unfortunately too many people would rather bitch about things than vote.

Indeed.

      https://abcnews.go.com/Lifestyle/wireStory/lgbtq-groups-denounce-florida-plan-limit-transgender-care-88295779     I surely hope Lambda Legal is successful in fighting this.  It's all just junk science driven by political ideology.  Low income Floridian trans folk are going to be in a world of hurt.   Carolyn Marie

      I got all dressed up just to visit a GF at work. Well ok, she works at a gaming lounge so I stayed for a bit. I'm really liking my look with the blue.

      Very nicely written a interesting way to place yourself vulnerable and also describe a loving soul mate.
    • Bobbi-BI
      Excellent- I like the way your rows mirror, the way you became entranced and the repetition of "in you" for your success at finding love.

      Very well said

      well done!

      @Jackie C.  I guess the point I was trying to make got lost.  Like @Davie and @Hannah Renee talking about not having friends or friends that fully knew or understood their being transgender.  I know I went through a period of being conflicted.  Some people and my family knew, but I hide being transgender from others.  I had two groups.  Those that knew and those that didn’t.  I was trying to let everyone know but that wasn’t working.  Now I am fully out.  If someone asks I’ll tell them honestly but everyone sees me as a woman now. Only a few know, but everyone sees me as I am.   until you come out to yourself and everyone full time, you won’t feel good about yourself.   Right or wrong, that’s what I was trying to say.   Willow

      I have a question pertaining to HRT. I'm now into the 30th month of the 36 month regime and my mind is almost exploding with the desire to write Poetry of both slightly humerus and serious in content for the past 6 months. This has resulted in my having to release my first book shortly.  My question is has anyone else had an almost compulsive need to wright and to want to acquire friends?

      How long have you been on T? When I first started T it's basically a second puberty and I suffered badly with acne the first time. The second time was no different. But it did settle down after a while. As for the scares, I use bio oil. It's great for reducing scaring

      When I used to bind I used to pull my beats up and apart. This gave a more realistic chest definition. I never had any trouble slipping but I purchased a binder that was super tight and just learned to breath from my stomach limiting the amount I had to raise my chest. I got used to it after a while and used to exercise and hike with minimal issues. Looking back though as really tight binder did have its down sides. Once I had top surgery I had to learn how to breath using my chest again. Also an extra tight binder can be pretty sore after wearing it all day.    As for the bottom of you binder being too big. I went to a tailors and asked them to shorten it for me. This made such a difference. Hope this helps a little.

      Can I ask, are you currently taking T? 
    • Justsam
      My experience is a little different than yours. I put myself on T so by the time I went for my first Dr appointment I already had a full beard and was also 26 years old. I had one assessment and then was booked in for surgery about 3 months later if I remember correctly. If I were you I'd ask your doctor at your next appointment and hopefully they can give you a rough eta.    If you want to discuss the actual surgery then don't hesitate to message me.

      I've used both. I used to prefer gel but as you mentioned, it can transfer to others and it's way slower acting. Once I moved to injections I was much happier. I personally hate needles but over the years I've got used to doing them. Also with the gel it takes time to dry which is annoying if you're in a rush and if you sweat then you can loose more of the gel. It's your personal choice but for me I find injections the best. And yes, get ready for your sex drive to go through the roof haha. It does settle down after a while though

      I spent 6 weeks in Nepal and had to bind for the entire time. It was horrible. Especially as I stupidly decided to go when it was the hottest and most humid time of the year. I found that breathing from my stomach and diaphragm helped because I didn't have to expand my chest quite as much. Do you self bind or do you have a proper binder?

      Other than the subject of not having friends, my reference was mostly in reference to my previous life. I was basically a people pleaser, not specifically looking for friends. I couldn't acknowledge or accept my own self, my value. Once I finally recovered from a chronic case of cranialrectumitis a few years ago, well, my world changed. I am not willing to be anything/anyone but MYSELF, Hannah Renee. I have to make certain small concessions, on an occasional basis, regarding how I dress when I'm with our youngest (special needs, limited capability to understand).  My wife was extremely PO'd when she found out I was changing my name before the divorce was final - not intentional on my part, BTW. Well, she wanted the divorce, "go live your own life," and, dammit, that's what I'm doing. She doesn't have to like it, nor does anyone else.   I've posted updates and a couple of recent photos on a website that allows connections with high school classmates from half a century ago. Getting a lot more visits in the last month than in all the previous 18 months. My father was a prominent member of the community, and though he is long gone, and would be very much against what I'm doing, I'm damn proud of who I am - Hannah, day in and day out - and I'm proclaiming it to my world.
