THREAD : LES TRANSSEXUELS ET TRANSGENRES EXISTENT-ILS VRAIMENT ?
On parle beaucoup, ces temps-ci, de sexe, de genre, de transsexuel et de transgenres. Le préfixe trans (fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans), qui signifie en latin “de l’autre côté”, indique un changement, un passage d’un sexe à un autre ou d’un genre à un autre.

So, yesterday's anger over @NicolaSturgeon and @S_A_Somerville betrayal of trans people over #GRAReform has crystallised into white-hot fury

Yet again we've seen another Government ignore the voices of the trans community in favour of cis voices who don't have the first...

The claim was made that 60% of people supported a self-declaration system for obtaining a GRC, but this is false

I think it’s safe to say that every trans person in the...

community who isn’t a #transphobic arserag can now spot whenever the usual #hate groups and individuals deploy their dog-whistles to denigrate trans people, especially trans women, but it is all too easy to forget that for the average cis person with no experience of...

this the comments and phrases that #transphobes come out with can come across as bizarre, or non-sequiturs, or even occasionally even reasonable. That person, because they have no experience of this, doesn’t see those comments as the attacks they are, and so can’t...
