Article: Transgender Travel; A Changing Landscape

Interesting, but limited article.  I'd like to see more about international destinations, cruise lines and airlines; both those that are welcoming, and those to steer clear of.  There are a lot of us who love to travel.  We need more good information.

Well, its a start.  It was interesting to see the list of cities & counties with non-discrimination ordinances on their books. I was surprised by some of the places on (and not on) the list.   Thanks!

I've been all over the country and never had a problem anywhere, but I could have just been lucky.  There are places in the world where I just can't or won't go, for safety reasons, and some where I'd probably be safe with a group, but where I would still be very nervous.  I do check the State Department's web site, but it's information is somewhat limited and generic.

Ive been Birmingham in the West Midlands and never had a problem. However i dislike the ring road. Its like the M25. The speed limit is more of a guide than an actual limit. ( Ohhh its Birmingham Alabama. My bad)

 

Never had a travelling problem. theres places i would never go regardless of what it says on my passport. such as Saudia, Yeman, Palastine. Libya. Always wanted to go Isreal,  but Japan and maybe Australia is on my bucket list

 

However I have never had any problems anywhere i went. As far as the USA is concerned. Never been. I got invited once. But that was more for being part of a Love triangle. Not my thing at all and disneyland i can take it or leave it. My partner keeps going on about it and how much i would enjoy it but not really that bothered.

 

The Uk is very liberal when it comes to anything like this, But its like anywhere I guess. There is parts that you would never go.That  even the Locals dont go unless they really have to and places that are safe to anyone. Even london has its bad areas and good areas. But they do change.  I grew up in East London in the 80s and unless you  knew the right people or was  very street wise or actted like a native (which I was) then dont expect to come out without a scratch. Now many of those places are quite well to do and dare i say affluent.  However I do go most places without a care but then again I dont really visit the more depreived area of the UK as i have no need. But not trying to promote the UK you could go to far worse places than the British isles.

      Whatever Shampoo people use, Try not to over shampoo. Shampoo can and will strip the nutrients and oils from your hair if it is overused. Use Conditioner if you do not have dirty hair, and leave in some conditioner to help the hair stay moisturized and healthy. If you feel your hair needs a wash, then just use conditioner.

      Wake me if there is a good half time show at the "super" bowl.  I was a soccer player and never was all that interested in football.   How about the US women's soccer team.....awesome!

      I agree, cause ive seen two teams I enjoy watching tank. The Washington Redskins, and the Carolina Panthers. I also used to watch my former home team, Chargers, tank every year.

      She is one person who stands up to the current president and it appears he is aware of it, hence how he talks about her.  She would be a tough candidate I believe.

      I recently had a bone scan as well and all is well.  My doctor put me on Vitamin D a year ago.  I'm trying to be pro-active with my heath so I'm not going down without a fight!

      That is why I am painting my nails, wearing what I want. If people don't like it tough tooki. Last week I had worn red nail polish. a few looks but no comments other than from a lady liking the color.   Yesterday was my second visit with my speech therapist. Got into some preparation exercises. I was able to get to a level I liked. 😁   Kymmie

      When i first moved to Bonnie Scotland. I took me ages to get use to being called "Pal" Where i came from it was a very male oreintated acknowledgement. But here all genders it can be associated with the term.  I was right upset for a while being called "pal" as i was thinking i was being outed everywhere. A very strange phemominan for me as it just doesnt happen. Well not for at least six years and then i was just finding my feet so to speak until i quizzed my partner about it who is native. I didnt feel so bad then.   Also "Hen" is used  between woman but men use it a lot when addressing a Female but not knowing there name. Isnt it funny how little regional things can be so diffrent?   A bit like how you would call someone darling down south if your a man talking to a woman in passing by  "Thanks darling" They say "Thanks Pal" or "Thanks Hen"   They do not really use sweetie. At least i have never heard it. Maybe im  just not sweet enough? 😉         Wow that is old school.  I have not seen one of those in years. I use to have the attachment if you had points but even they went out of use a few years ago.   Just a plastic one now for me im afraid.

      My opnion is. They should man up and play Rugby Union.  It's like this you speak of but without all the cotton and bubble rap.   Proper mans game 😉

      She's the senior senator from my state, and I've heard her speak. She's a breath of fresh, sincere, air.  Her primary passions are economic justice (she spearheaded getting the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau established, which has been greatly curtailed under the Trump administration, sadly).  However, she was also a firm supporter of our statewide ballot initiative for transgender rights last year, which was successful.   I have no doubts about her support for trans rights on the federal level.  The question will be, how receptive will the U.S, Senate be to any Democratic president on any issue if it retains a Republican majority.   Fingers crossed,   Astrid
