French health minister Roseline Bachelot, who said transgender people will be excluded from the “mental illness” list in May, signed a decree last week. Immediately afterwards, Iran made it clear that it could make the same decision. Everyone is watching the Chevrilmishken World Health Organization, the President of the Idaho Association spoke to Joel Bedos and transgender people in Turkey.
Isn’t this a situation where a person feels the opposite sex, how the opposite sex wants to be and has not yet been accepted by society? Stop saying, “I accept the gender identity of transgender people.” We remember them with shame for our moral understanding. We succumb to our transphobia and close all doors in front of their faces. We endure sex work and consider it “shameful”. We are not talking about their victims of honor killings. Who knows how many transgender people are infected with their blood and body?
