43%- made me wonder if there was any other group in society with a similar high percentage- First Nation youth is in the news right now. But I could not find statistics. It’s a shocking number.
Good to see you back again, Rita.

The bottom line seems to be this: Depression is a major precursor to suicide.

Good to 'see' you back Rita.

Exactly, and being in a marginalized group, which both trans and indigenous youth do, can exacerbate depression to a horrifying degree. Not to mention struggling with dysphoria as Rita discusses in the video.

Marginalized poverty is the major horrifying degree of 'intersectional depression' around any and all 'other' marginalized groups.

thank you for posting the video. You did a great job

i would be interested in your observations on issues related to Meghan murphy. And particularly your take on self declared, non surgically adjusted trans males and where they fit in the spectrum of female safety related to prisons and shelters

while I understand the issue of acceptance, I am concerned at non surgically changed previous males , who now identify as females, being of danger to biological females. Recognizing that female si; those situations Reoften also females who have suffered at the hands of men

obviously I have some trouble with how to describe people above. I am not intending to hurt anyone with my comments. But I am concerned above all with female safety

is it enough to self declare? Does that mean there is no definition of female? Are we discounting what being female is by accepting anyone who declares as female?

In a recent FB posting of anonymous nature ... it was suggested eradicating poverty would alleviate such psychic distress ... but the wealthy can't stand such sacrifices of what they believe is their sol value system ... stoneyness of Jackson-ah? Private Tyez Sion ... vocal iconographic?

It should be sounded out ... yet silence is defined in theis crypt! Myth from the Deeps of time? --- Orson Welles ... thus one hears distant voices in the mystery!

Mute powers ... along with the power of knowledge ... tis in the writ! Apologetics take on a vast complexity!

Imagine deviates correcting tyrants! Explains weevils ...

Thank you for trusting me with your questions Lastpointe. I know your heart so please don't worry about your wording. We will sort out the essence of your questions.
First lets clear up some terminology. A person that was born with male equipment and identifies as a woman is a trans woman.
M to F = Trans woman.
This is built on self identification regardless of whether or not the person has had 'the operation'. Basically, I did not take hormones to make me a woman, I took hormones because I am a woman. Similarly, I had the operation because I am a woman. Neither hormones nor surgery made me more of a woman.
A person has a right to their gender identity and the right to be housed accordingly. That is the law so there is that.
Now as to whether or not a woman that still has a penis is somehow an extra danger to other women, this has never proven out in fact. The truth is is that the trans woman is at an increased danger risk herself regardless if housed in a male or female facility. The risk to her is less in a female facility but still above the risk other inmates face. Typically, a trans woman is not a risk factor for other women, the reverse is the truth.
Now as for self identification, this is no mere casual flippant thing. The person is measured by qualified mental health professionals. The three indicators are examined, insistent, persistent, consistent. There are a number of checks and balances that must be passed to be considered as a bona fide trans person before being reassigned to a female facility. It is not an easy thing for an inmate to do. Therefore it is not a credible concern to consider trans women as posing a potential risk to other female inmates.

Now concerning this Megan Murphy. She denies the entire transgender identity reality and she measures the validity of whether or not someone is an 'real' woman based solely on plumbing. She discounts and rejects the entire body of historic, scientific, medical, and psychological facts and knowledge that has been amassed defining this reality. One can only speculate on her reasons for doing so but her rejection, disrespect, and disparaging of trans women in the face of such expert evidence smacks of bigotry. My opinion is that her rejection of facts along with the falsehoods and vitrol she pedals is tanamount to hate speech. I for one am not comfortable with her being granted platforms in public institutions as a vehicle for her to spread proven false and damaging information that causes distain for an already severly marginalized and at risk group. As an example, we would not tolerate such speech were it about persons of colour.
I hope this at least in part addresses your questions and again thank you for trusting me enough to ask.

As long as trans people are treated the way they are , driving them towards suicide, the chance that a straight non trans male fakes to be trans to get access to female bathrooms and institutions to take advantage of females should be fairly slim. Not that it would be impossible, because it seems today that sick minds happen in all kinds of varieties, but still unlikely. After all, it still is easy to be a rapist, stalker, groper and males don’t need to fake anything and get away with it most of the time.

Respectfully or not ... sin is out there as transliteration and the scatter of essence of mind upended ... transference? When "g" and "c" parts are clipped to make ohm berts ... berts or birds with a whine ... roue stirs! Morning protocol ...

Like the city of New Orleans ... may require mysterious essences to connect chic Argos come down ... thus thic Kargoes gods ... in a word shift!

Trans literally ... we can't see things as Shakespeare who saw god inna word! After that Shakespearean conned tex ... floating understanding was thus nailed ... in ancient tongues Onyx 'd ... a blacker shade; Ankora!

thanks for your response Rita

There was an issue several years ago in Vancouver. A trans female without surgery wanted to have housing in a rape crisis center. Is that the correct spot? What about women who have been raped and are afraid of men. And as I recal the Center lost their funding

there needs to be some other spot. Many women are afraid of men

I too am uncomfortable with meghan Murphy but I am pleased the TORONTO libraries did not shut it down. If we don’t have free speech where are we as a society.

And of course I get that individual issues can’t be the ones that create rules but there was also the rapist turned self declared trans female who was housed with the female population and charged again with several counts of rape of fellow prisoners

again, surely women , whether natural born or surgically altered , need protection

i am worried that in our acceptance oriented society we somehow have allowed the word woman to become meaningless

Both of these instances are examples of poor gatekeeping. Once again the knee jerk reaction is to exclude a trans woman simply based on genitals. The vast majority pose no risk whatsoever. I am all for prudent and diligent screening based on risk. That needs to be the criteria. I hope this makes my position clear
