What I really want to say to the public, to the blogosphere, to whoever reads this, with all my hemming and hawing about my gender is not what gender I am. What I really want to say is that it’s okay to hem and haw about your gender, or about the way you express that gender. There’s a lot of possibilities—including never knowing for sure—and not one of them makes you less of a person.

THE FEEL OF FREE: How to Be a Friend to Trans Folks Without Putting Your Foot in Your Mouth: A Short Guide for Cis People

kiriamaya:

This goes out to all the cis people who, it’s quite obvious, want to help and befriend trans people, but who keep alienating and angering us instead. I’ve seen the befuddled looks on your faces when this happens, and I thought I’d try to clear a few things up for you. Let’s look…

Painless Shots

Hey Boys - If you ever have trouble doing your T shot try this trick out:

Put pressure near the spot that’s about to get the needle and you’ll feel it less. Just make a circle with your thumb and forefinger and push down a few seconds before the shot. This technique overrides nearby nerves, making the shot feel more like a gentle poke.

Yesterday (August 18th), the Argentinian Congress began a debate on a proposed gender identity law.

If passed, this law would allow anyone to correct hir name, gender and image registration in all public records through a quick and simple procedure.

Currently, trans people who wish to obtain a government ID with their true gender and name must wait years for a judges ruling, often being denied and forced to go through a lengthy and costly appeals process.

In preparation, the Argentinian Federation of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans people (FALGBT) and the ATTTA (Asociación de Travestis, Transexuales y Transgéneros de Argentina) launched earlier last week, the campaign “Identidad: Derecho a ser” (“Identity: The right to be” in English).

Traducción:

El 18 de agosto, el Congreso argentino comenzó el debate sobre una posible ley de identidad de género.

Si fuera aprobada, esta ley permitiría que cualquier persona corrigiera su nombre, género e imagen, en todos los documentos públicos, mediante un procedimiento rápido y sencillo.

En la actualidad, las personas trans que desean obtener un documento de identidad con su nombre y género verdaderos debe esperar años por un pronunciamiento judicial; muchas veces su pedido es denegado y deben comenzar una apelación larga y costosa.

En preparación, la Federación Argentina LGBT (FALGBT) y ATTTA (Asociación de Travestis, Transexuales y Transgéneros de Argentina) lanzó la campaña “Identidad: Derecho a Ser”.

Este video forma parte de la campaña por la aprobación de la ley.

(Nota: en realidad hay varias leyes en discusión —incluyendo una de la FALGBT/ATTA— que difieren en cuanto a patologización/no-patologización, edad mínima, cobertura de operaciones/hormonas por hospitales públicos y obras sociales, etc.)
