I am sick of hate.
I am sick of discrimination.
I am sick of the people who think that they are better than others, and that only their rights matter.
I am sick of the daily onslaught of misinformation, prejudice and lies aimed at the Transgender community.
We know what happens when people are discriminated against (for their colour, religion, ethnicity, sexuality)
So I’m going to say it loud:
I AM NOT AFRAID TO USE THE SAME BATHROOM AS A TRANS WOMEN.
I AM NOT AFRAID TO USE A SHOP FITTING ROOM OR CHANGING ROOM WITH A TRANS WOMAN.
I AM NOT AFRAID OF TRANS WOMEN.
I AM NOT AFRAID OF TRANS MEN.
I AM NOT AFRAID OF TRANSGENDER PEOPLE!
I am afraid of people who discriminate and who perpetuate hate.
I am no expert in whats going on right now, so I will share links for you to do some research for yourself.
Being yourself should NEVER have to be a battle.
I am PROUD to be a Trans Ally
Nancy Kelley, CEO Stonewall:
“Independent human rights institutions have a duty to protect and promote ‘all’ of our rights without fear or favour. The EHRC is not fulfilling that duty, which is a sad and frightening thing for all of us who have experienced discrimination and abuse.”
