Just finished Love Lives Here, by Amanda Jetté Knox. She writes about the changes in her family and in herself, when two of the family come out as transgenders. Identifiable for me because my partner is a transwoman, but a very good story for anyone.

I saw the following on my Cliqz home page this morning, and thought that the LGBTQ community here and elsewhere could use some GOOD news for a change:

An important story here, offered by CBS News, regarding the status of gay men and Lesbian women back in the 50s, during what was known as the Lavender Scare.

The lavender scare: How the federal government purged gay employees

I will also post a bit more of this in the Atheist News group, as I think it's important enough to warrant more attention.

Ellen Page blasts Mike Pence for spending his ‘career trying to cau...

I hadn't realized the extent to which Mike Pence made a career of promoting hatred and suffering. Because Evangelicals self-promote that they're all about love, it masked to me that he's all about hate.

Did we miss the leaked memo in October, from federal Department of Health and Human Services, suggesting that "transgender" could be defined out of existence (for the government)?

 …a much broader threat to trans communities that continues to loom, …: the policy changes contained in the memo leaked by the federal Department of Health and Human Services last October.

… the leak, which The New York Times described as a sign that “‘transgender’ could be defined out of existence,” ….

Hormone therapy has acceptable health risk.

Studies Find That Transgender Hormone Therapy Is Less Risky Than Bi...

... hormone therapy for transgender people increases the risk of blood clots less than birth control pills and does not increase the risk of cardiovascular disease at all.

 transgender patients often experience difficulty getting hormone therapy prescriptions, to the point that 1 in 4 transgender women have to resort to illegally obtaining cross-sex hormones. Part of this is because existing research on transgender hormone therapy is limited and conflicting, which has led to some physicians denying patients this treatment out of concern that it could significantly increase the risk of health problems such as blood clots and cardiovascular disease.

A team of researchers led by Dina N. Greene, PhD, of the University of Washington in Seattle has now estimated that in transgender women prescribed estrogen, blood clots only occur at.... While this is higher than the estimated incidence rate of blood clots in the general population (1.0-1.8 per 1,000 person-years), it is less than the estimated rate in premenopausal women taking oral contraceptives (3.5 per 1,000 person-years), which means that it is an acceptable level of risk.

It appears that Trump defines himself as “normal” and those men who match his definition define the word for all of humanity, including other men, all women, and every race, in his mind.
We discussed Trump’s psychopathology before using the ”Hare's 20-item Psychopathy Checklist-Revised”.

"People who are psychopathic prey ruthlessly on others using charm, deceit, violence or other methods that allow them to get with they want. The symptoms of psychopathy include lack of a conscience or sense of guilt, lack of empathy, egocentricity, pathological lying, repeated violations of social norms, disregard for the law, shallow emotions, and a history of victimizing others."

If Trump decides to “invalidate the existence of transgender people,” it means he “wants to exclude trans and non-binary people from the protections afforded to everyone under our federal civil rights law and undo hard-won victories for LGBTQ rights.”
~ American Civil Liberties Union

Trump, a man without a conscience, uses everyone & everything as a means to achieve his ends. He is not a cause of our nation's sickness; he is a symptom. Why else would anyone vote for him or go into a business deal with him? He is the proverbial charlatan, pulling a rabbit out of his hat as he picks our pockets.

The Trump administration erasing trans people, and unleashing a wave of murder, to distract from Republican corruption? It's possible:

I talked to a xian from my past, and asked him what someone in a hetero marriage should do according to the xian's beliefs, when one of the partners comes out transgender. Choices are - to honour the marriage and stay together or to abandon partner because a gay marriage is bad in the eyes of his god. The loser could only talk about praying partner back into the closet. Talk about immorality!
