For over 30 years, puberty blockers have been safely used to delay precocious puberty in non-trans children aged 6 to 12 years. Trans youth receive them at the onset of puberty and often for shorter lengths of time.

We've been hearing an increasing number of reports of trans people's GPs refusing to prescribe their HRT to them - even if they have a letter from an NHS gender clinic requesting that they do. That's why we're created our new My GP is Refusing to Prescribe My HRT resource: https://transactual.org.uk/medical-transition/my-gp-is-refusing-to-prescribe-my-hrt-what-can-i-do/

Good morning, beautiful people! :QueerCatHeart_Trans:

So... for my Crashing the Gates post for today... I decided to write a little bit about poetry. I had a conversation with some cisgender colleagues about a poem, and it was interesting just how different my perspective on a poem was compared to theirs. So I talk about this, comparing two somewhat similar poems, and why these two poems might be interpreted so differently by trans people.

Enjoy!

"Utah's bathroom snitch line hasn't found one legitimate complaint out of 12,000"

"the form still has not led to a single substantiated complaint after over 12,000 filings. Only five reports were deemed "plausible" enough to investigate, and each inquiry turned up nothing, the Utah Public Auditor announced in a statement"

I mean that's what happens when you invent a crisis to distract from REAL issues

Breaking news: We've taken the next step to challenge the ban on puberty blockers

We have asked for an urgent hearing that will seek to quash the ban. It is clear that this ban is having a devastating - and harmful - impact on young trans people and we do not believe that waiting is an option.

“It certainly seems like an issue that could be ripe for litigation because it’s right on its face discriminating against people for sexual orientation or #transgender status.”

Title IX, a half-century old #law bars #discrimination in schools based on #sex.
