So..........I'm trying to sort thru news items so I can post three on the Trans.Mission FB page and AGAIN there are commentaries and opinions about the convicted killer in Massachussetts who may well be allowed to get SRS with taxpayer money. Okay, I'm over the absurdity of the whole situation but here's my point;
I know what a 'life saving medical procedure is' and SRS is not that. If you decide to kill yourself over it, then you don't embrace life enough anyway (IMO only). BUT..........SRS is life-AFFIRMING and I truly believe that if we, the transgender community stops portraying said procedure as the 'only thing that will keep us each alive' and instead get people to understand that it is just about the last step in a long process of self-reclamation then I think we would appear to be more sensible about the whole thing. And I know that some/many may not disagree but the reason I am asking this is.........
How can we better represent why SRS is so important to us without making it seem like it drives our entire existence like a medical homing instinct?
