France Removes Transgender From Psychological Disease List

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?

What is Transphobia?

Transphobia is the term used to describe severe dissatisfaction or prejudice against transgender people. It also includes aversion to transgender, intersexual androgens, etc.

A transgender believes that the gender assigned to him at birth is not a gender.

For more information, see the article “What is transsexual?

Transphobia can take many different forms.

Attitudes and negative beliefs.

Reluctance and prejudice against transgender people

Irrational fear and misunderstandings

Preferred uncertainty or discount pronoun or gender identity

Offensive language and name

Intimidation, abuse and even violence.

Transphobia can produce subtle and clear forms of discrimination. For example, transgender people (or just transgender people) may be denied work, accommodation, or medical care because they are transgender people.

People can experience transphobic beliefs if they are taught to others, including parents and families, who promote negative beliefs about transgender people and who have strong beliefs about traditional gender roles.

Some people are transphobic because they have no knowledge of incorrect information or their transidentity. You may not know any trans people or problems, or you may personally meet someone who is a trans man or woman.

The stress of transphobia in transsexuals can be very harmful, causing:

depression
anxiety
isolation
Feelings of hopelessness
Suicide
What is the excursion?

Going out is revealing another person’s transidentity or sexual orientation without their permission or permission. Sometimes it’s deliberate and sometimes accidental, but if you exchange information about a person’s gender identity against their will, you run the risk of feeling ashamed, sad, and fragile. You can also expose them to the risk of discrimination and violence.

When someone tells you your transaction identity, remember that it is very personal information and an honor that you can entrust to me. Ask them to always have permission to share with others and to respect their wishes.

Where can I get help if I have a transphobic event?

People who are victims of transphobic harassment often feel alone and are afraid to tell someone what is happening. You should never face transphobia and you should not be alone.

Where can you get help:

Other transgender people

Online communities for transgender people

Local LGBTI communities and associations

Swans allied with trans people

If you’re a student, try to find an adult you can trust, e.g. B. a teacher or a related school administrator.

Not everyone lives in a place with supportive school administration or LGBTI associations. In this case, the internet can help you find online communities and help you fight transphobia and discrimination.

If you are a young victim of school bullying, it is important that you tell someone, even if you are afraid. Adolescents who suffer from transphobia at school sometimes no longer affect their grades, friendships and plans for the future. Some schools may have policies against bullying and bullying. If possible, find a teacher or adult who is allied with LGBTI students and ask for help.

What can I do to stop transphobia?

Nobody has the right to discriminate or injure others emotionally or physically. There are things you can do to stop transphobia:
Don’t use insults against transgender people.

Ask personal questions about the genitals, operations, or sex life of a transgender person.

Avoid compliments that offend trans people. Some examples: “You look like a real girl!” Or “I never could have guessed that she is transsexual!”

Believe or make assumptions about stereotypes about trans people.

Whatever your gender identity is, support the transgender community.

Let transsexuals know that you are a friend and ally in your life.

Train in trans issues.

Respect people’s decisions about when and where to open them.

If you don’t know a person’s favorite pronouns or names, ask them.

Use a gender-independent language.

Respect and use pronouns and names chosen by trans people.

Remember that being transgender is not

What is a transsexual, what is not?

Transsexual syndrome is a congenital disease that is treated by university clinics around the world. It is a physical (organic) disease that is reflected in the mother’s fertility. In all mammals, the original sex of the offspring is the female. During the second month of development in the womb, the gender of the baby remains female or male, and the fetus releases the hormones. During this time, the sexual structure of this small body and brain is determined. This explains why men also have nipples that remain the trail of the original female sex.

At this stage of the development of the fetus, something is wrong and the sex of the baby’s body and the brain are not the same, that is, the body remains unchanged as the body transforms. or the body remains unchanged as the brain transforms. Brain research confirms this explanation. Autopsies in transgender people have shown that the gender of the brain is not the same as the gender at birth. (Part of the brain is different in men and women).

It is medically impossible to adapt consciousness to the transgender body. The solution makes the body suitable for the brain / consciousness. This process is known as gender redefinition or gender correction. The procedure lasts for many years (for example, hair removal, speech therapy, hormonal therapy). In addition, you must specify the monetary resource for this transaction. The operation is not the last step of the procedure.

Transsexuality has nothing to do with transvestism. Transvestites are men who like to look like women, even if they like to be men and even feel proud.

Transsexuality is not linked to homosexuality. A gay man is with a gay man and a gay woman is with a gay woman. They are proud of their gender and refuse surgery to remove the genitals unless they have cancer or another disease. Homosexuality refers to a relationship. Transsexuality expresses fear of identity and not sexual orientation. Like the others, the transgender person can commit to a man, a woman, both or neither.

Transsexuality is not a mental illness. Psychiatrists and psychologists have tried for years to treat it as a disease. However, since it is not a mental illness, these days it is not possible to seek treatment from a psychiatrist. In fact, it was discovered that one transgender was more balanced in mental health than the others.

Transsexuals don’t like clothes and looks. The transgender person is particularly dressed and decorated to be considered a natural member of the opposite sex. This is a necessary part of the treatment and the person must play this role as a member of the opposite sex for at least 1 year until the operation is approved.

A transsexual is not a man who wants to be a woman or a woman who wants to be a man. Although the identification card indicates that it belongs to a gender, the person before treatment is not a man or a woman, but a transgender. Because there is an incompatibility between gender in the brain / consciousness and gender on the identification card.

It is not possible to cure the syndrome that is not changing sex. Although the person is considered transgender until the gender reassignment stage, after the procedure, the person is no longer transgender, but only a woman or a man.

It is unpredictable in which family a transgender child can be born. Do not know if your child or grandchildren is transgender. For decades, the majority of those affected have unhappily tried to live in the gender in which they were born, as have everyone else. When interviewed, these people may even refuse to have the opposite sex. Over the years, they begin to understand what is happening and, with much courage, they can try to change everything drastically. Since no one will become transgender over time, you personally know if it is transgender. Otherwise, you would be grateful.

If left untreated, transsexuals can even go crazy because of the fear and depression they can’t stand, since no one can eliminate their current identity throughout their lives. 80% of these people become pregnant before the operation, attempt or commit serious suicide. This rate after surgery falls to the level of suicide rates in the community.

Transsexuality is not an insignificant situation. Often can

Markus Ganserer, who was re-elected to Bavaria in Germany last October, changed his gender.

If you want to rename yourself due to the gender change in Germany, you have to have at least two operations and wait a year until your wish is fulfilled. For this reason, the name Markus is used in parliament until the new name Ganserer becomes official.

“THE PERSONALITY OF INDIVIDUALS IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN GENDER”

Ilse Aigner, President of the Bavarian State Parliament, supported the Ganserer and said: “His identity should not be a problem in Parliament. The personality of the individual is more important than his gender.” spoke like.

But there were also politicians who criticized Ganserer. Wolfgang Wiehle from the Alternative Party for Germany (AfD) said in a post on Twitter: “Markus Gaserer wants to reorganize the transsexual law (now Tessa). Fortunately, there is no major problem with fear in our country!”.

Trans Woman Buse: I want to have surgery

Despite all his applications, the trans-detainee who was detained in Metris Prison wrote a letter saying that his operation did not take place and that he was approaching suicide.

Devrim Kepenek from Bianet reported that inmate Buse, a transgender prisoner, went on a hunger strike for 38 days in July 2018 to accept transgender surgery. He was in Tekirdağ F Type Prison. The court suspended the death fast upon the decision of ara may be surgery..

However, the surgery did not occur. Buse resumed his death fast on January 31, 2019. When he spoke with the prison administration, he took a break from his death fast.

Meanwhile, the Istanbul Branch of the Human Rights Association delivered a letter describing Buse’s status on the 20th day of her hunger strike to the United Nations on 20 February 2019. The letter stated that the Ministry of Justice’s prevention of surgery was contrary to Articles 8 and 14 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

In spite of the v Surgery must take place ”report of the court and the hospital, Buse cut off his genitals in August 2019 when the sex transition operation did not take place. Then he was brought to Metris Prison where he had a rehabilitation center.

Buse’s letter from Metris Prison:

Im I went to Samatya Hospital. Urology was never interested. The doctor said, “For the first time transgender I see. ” He just let it go. He was interested in plastic surgery and did an examination. He was referred to the anchor hospital. I went to the anchor. Urology was not interested. Andrology. Plastic Surgery also referred to Urology. Andrology. The doctors didn’t talk to me. He only tried to understand the situation by talking to the officer from the window. They referred him to Andrology. I don’t know if you’re interested in andrology, I have no hope. I feel very, very bad. I no longer have the patience. I said, irse If my operation is blocked, I will commit suicide 100% ”. Yok There is no guarantee that I will not commit suicide if my surgery is extended. Im My physical health and my mental health are about to give an alarm. I’ll commit suicide if I happen to have surgery as soon as possible. I will end my life. Actually, I didn’t want to talk about suicide. But I needed to mention in advance that they would not say, iler We didn’t know or predicted that this would happen. Iler

I no longer have the strength, my patience, my body and my body health alarms. Even when I urinate. My legs, feet, clothes get wet, urine is contaminated. Sometimes I even get urine on my face. I also feel severe pain when my body is asleep. But I can’t talk to the doctors about this. They’re not talking. Reports, even without looking at the minutes of the right from the beginning. They express their hatred and disgust from every behavior. They don’t care if my suicide is 100 percent inevitable. I’m finished. I hope they do something urgently. Otherwise, I have to do something urgently myself. I’ve become ashamed of myself. I’m also embarrassed about constantly expressing my victimization. Note: I only have one coat left, can you send me a dress and skirt? I offer greetings and love to all my friends. ”

Interview With Transgender Woman Oyku

We had a very special interview with transgender woman Oyku.

That interview…

When and how did you know that you were a transgender individual?

In fact, as soon as we enter puberty, we begin to understand the differences in us. But it takes time to put a description of it. In the past, homosexuality and transsexuality were not much talked about. We are the people of a period that started to explore homosexuality with Zeki Müren and transsexuality with Bülent Ersoy. Now thanks to technology LGBTI it doesn’t take much time for individuals to discover themselves. Of course, this is the door for them to be able to do the transformation at an early age. We were forced to notice ourselves, but I was still lucky for many of my friends. I started to discover myself during the secondary school period, I could say that I am a trans woman in the university period.

Did your family have any support?

-Turkey get the family support in not easy conditions. At first, I had a hard time expressing myself to my family. But I was lucky that I had a family trying to understand me. And they’ve always been there for me. I’m one of the lucky trans people in the family. I still have strong ties with my family.

When, why and how did you start LGBTI activism?

– My injustices were so painful! And the injustices experienced by my trans friends around me were so great! The urge to resist, the urge to stop injustice triggers you, and it blossoms from somewhere. We first got a magazine called Spartacus in Bursa. But as a result of the prints did not last long. Of course, during these periods, I participated in LGBTI organizations in Istanbul and Ankara. In this period, the violence of the police and the violence of the people in the streets were extremely rare. Our friends were beaten and subjected to violence. And now it was so intolerable that something had to be done. In this process, we have done our first collective action by leading my friends, in front of the Police and with the first press release. Then the first Transgender activism by building on 20th March, 2006 in Turkey and addressing the Bursa Rainbow Association Transgender LGBT rights on legal step I took.

In Bursa, you established the first LGBTI association in Bursa and what kind of activities did you conduct in this association? Which projects did you implement?

-BURSA LGBT Rainbow Association is seen as completely minorities when setting up our goal, we have established with the aim to fight for the rights of Turkey completely legal according to the laws of our association floors. Of course we establish our association in Bursa, and then we find a place with a constant sense of right action always with continuous sitting on Turkey’s agenda as a result of close dialogue. For example, we applied to İŞKUR against the statement of the state administrators who said that they should not make sex work for trans women like every human being. We gathered money among ourselves and opened a cafe where LGBTT individuals work under the name of GÜLLÜM KAHVE. I found that injustice was made by us, I filed a criminal complaint about these officials and they were sentenced, but our workplace was not opened.

We also provided language training, literacy course, handicraft course and most importantly psychological and legal support to the illiterate. In this process, Bursa Nilufer Municipality agreed to give us a place from the marketplace, but we could sell our own products but the governor and a minister prevented it.

Turkey’s first official permission 1. Turkish homosexuals have organized a march on 6 August 2006, is a date. But unfortunately, this march was provoked by the fans of Bursaspor and great events happened. After these events, international institutions have reached to the associations that are still present to support us. But we knew about it later. They also benefited from financial support for us. We did not receive any financial support from any institution and organization during the process of the association. In all of our work, I met most of the items myself and some of them were provided with membership dues and voluntary donations.

Can you tell us about the process that led you to go to Thailand?

Activists and associations in Turkey is not so much, although it is unfortunately almost the only one who can express themselves and also that the struggle for rights. For this reason, I was often in the press with our various activities. At the same time in 2007, the first independent lawmaker from Turkey’s candidacy was vetoed by the YSK .Fakat I announced my candidacy from Bursa me why I raised with criminal fines. Then CHP Bursa deputy A. Candidacy was in the year 2011, and then in 2013 in the local elections. After 2011, I was elected as the Bursa Province and Osmangazi district delegate, and in 2013 I entered the district council with the highest votes among women.

Of course, in this process, local, national and international news appeared in the press. And the forces that are disturbed by the existence of LGBTI individuals have taken action. We have been sued for how to silence this woman and destroy it with the claim of 4,770 years. I was imprisoned for 28 months. Later on the search conditions in Turkey no longer deserves the first Brazilian to be possible, I believe, from there I moved to Thailand.

What do you do in Thailand, how do you live?

Of course it is not easy for a trans woman to start a new life in a new country. The money you have is running out after a certain time. early in this process, I have lived my life by giving guidance to people coming from Turkey. I also had rent income. In this process, I trained myself and started to work in a private hospital. I’m the head of department at the hospital where I work. And I was promoted to serve as general manager in our newly opened hospital.

How is life for LGBTI individuals in Thailand? Is it a country that can be called free enough for LGBTI individuals?

-Thailand has a distinct tolerance with the influence of Buddhism culture. Of course, this tolerance is not the same in all Buddhist countries. Like Islam, Buddhism is different in countries. In Thailand, being homosexual or being transgender is not socially strange. A peer or trans can do any profession. Doctor, stewardess, police … can do anything. Nobody would even look back.

I think it’s one of the most tolerant countries in the world. But of course there are some shortcomings. For example, even if a transgender woman changes gender, her official name and identity do not change. They do not have legal special laws, but they also have many rights. But I think there are laws to be enacted.

Do you think the return to Turkey?

I think -Türkiye to arrive, of course, but not now. Justice should come to my country, freedom of thought should come to my country, people in my country should be equal so that I can return to my country. Unfortunately, my country is getting worse every day. People are flocking to Turkey abandoned asylum in other countries. Perhaps never in history did not migrate this far Turkey. We’re going back on human rights. In the past Turkey’s interests as a special guest on all national channels I live broadcast. Now there is little or no LGBTI news or issues. They look at us like the plague. I don’t think we have security.

As a matter of fact, the statements of the Interior Minister on this issue and the statements of some religious groups trigger LGBTI hostility. However, the rulers of my country should support all sectors. LGBTI individuals were not citizens of the Republic of Turkey from space. But unfortunately my country LGBTI individuals have no value until Syrian refugees who migrated to Turkey, unfortunately. Here are all of these reasons I were in Turkey, even now I come or even think that my opportunity to make my struggle for human rights.

I think that justice and democratic rights have been suspended. I do not think that this process will end soon. But I will certainly return to my country, oppressed, despised, not put in place of human being, most importantly, I will continue to return to my LGBTI friends who do not have the right to live humanly. These days will surely pass. The republic founded by Atatürk is a secular and democratic country founded on solid foundations. As in the past, not the reaction will gain light.

Going about sharing your critical LGBT associations in Turkey .. what you want from the association?

-TURKEY associations in Europe and the US as the country and millions of dollars they received from the consulates of these countries that I criticized the AKP’s interior minister confirmed Süleyman Soylu, said 20 million dollars. I don’t make it up, but I’m the only one who makes strong criticisms of this issue, which has sounded strongly for years.

If you pay attention, the people who work in these associations and the salary earners are always the same people. It hasn’t changed in years.

And they do a few seminars apart from a few fake events and distribute condoms. Many of our trans friends are killed, sick, arrested. In spite of these millions of dollars, I support more people through the facebook group called Trans Solidarity Emergency Aid.

A lot of help, such as writing a free petition, providing a free lawyer, raising money for friends in distress, treating someone with a drug problem. But these associations do not act this way. They are not incapable of giving legal support to a trans and are not in a difficult situation.

So why are these associations getting these million dollars ???

Is this money only given to a few association managers to live in luxury?

At the same time, LGBTI associations are not only established for Kurdish LGBTI people.

So why didn’t these associations claim the cases of people who suffered injustice like Eylül Cansın? They didn’t claim it because it wasn’t Kurdish?

However, these associations have been supporting Pınar Selek, who is a non-LGBTI bazaar defendant, for months and still. A Ahmet Yildiz does not value as much for this association of trans women.

Since the AKP came, these associations have hardly even heard voices, but they are taking money. More importantly, they do their best to keep the money they receive from LGBTI individuals. They don’t release their financial reports. Unfortunately, LGBTI individuals in our country are unconscious about these issues. They do not seek the right of the Turkish people.

However, these millions of dollars received by these associations are not given so that only a few associations can receive salaries as much as the executive president. All Turkish for LGBT given. I am against this injustice or I am not against associations.

LGBT associations in Turkey at the moment there is almost a monopolization of the so-called civil society organizations and institutions, which in this case was the rant door. The assets of those working in these associations and their relatives of 1,2,3 degrees should be investigated for 20 years.

Why did the members of these associations fleeing abroad defected? These should be seriously investigated. And associations have been set up for LGBTI rights, not to be the backyard of any political formation or for separatism.

The oldest association has existed for 20 years and the executives are always the same people. What these associations as they obtained the rights for LGBTI individuals in Turkey? What are these acquisitions? These associations want a world without a pimp without a boss. Why don’t they fight for rights in labor laws?

I think what I’m trying to say is clear enough. Any person who already runs the logic can notice them. Nobody needs to say anything.

When work began to be done in Turkey activism for LGBT activism OUT OF MONEY then in Turkey. Activism is for the struggle for voluntary rights, not for money. Activism should not be done as civil servant or private sector labor.

I hope that one day that it FUND MONEY institutions giving off that tap the interests of young LGBT individuals volunteer to do real activism in Turkey.

Like fossilized politicians in political parties, fossilized exploitist activist decay disappears from the exploiters.

Despite everything, I also will change the history of youth from umutluyum.türki trans activists.

We thank you.

European Court ends forced sterilizations of trans people

STRASBOURG, France — Thursday, the European Court of Human Rights ruled that requiring sterilization of individuals seeking a change in their legal gender recognition violates human rights. Twenty two countries in Europe currently still require sterilization to access gender identity recognition, however this decision mandates that these countries amend their laws to reflect this positive ruling.

While forced sterilization has been deemed a human rights violation, the EU Court upheld that medical examinations and a mental health diagnosis were in line with the European Convention of Human Rights.

Jessica Stern, executive director of OutRight Action International, commenting on the decision said, “Today the world moved in the right direction for for trans rights everywhere. Forcing unnecessary medical interventions to access basic human rights like legal recognition of a person’s gender is barbaric. As more countries review laws for gender identity recognition it is essential that they forgo outdated policies and follow legislation from places like Malta or Argentina which prioritize self-determination. The decision from the European Court raises the bar globally.”

In a press release issued today Julia Ehrt, executive director of Transgender Europe, a human rights organization that has been at the forefront of of fighting these laws, also gave insight to the ruling, saying, “Today is a victory for trans people and human rights in Europe. This decision ends the dark chapter of state-induced sterilisation in Europe. The 22 states in which a sterilisation is still mandatory will have to swiftly end this practice. We are looking forward to supporting those and other countries in reforming their national legislation.”

This ruling results from three cases against France submitted in 2012 and 2013 which leveraged Article 8 of the European Convention of Human rights, the “Right to respect for private and family rights,” Article 3 of the Convention the “Prohibition of torture,” as well as Article 14, “Prohibition of discrimination.”

In 2015 the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) International, considered an anti-LGBT hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, submitted a written intervention to the court on this case, positing that states should have the right to address issues as they pertain to transgender individuals based on national contexts, and that the court should not consider the Yogyakarta Principles, a set of international principles relating to sexual orientation and gender identity, when considering the three cases.

Stern commented on the intervention of ADF International, and said, “Alliance Defending Freedom makes a mockery of the word freedom when they put religious dogma over the rights of individuals to be legally recognized. These cases are about every trans person’s right to self-determination and the freedom of every trans person to not be forcibly sterilized. This is without a doubt a fundamental right that must be upheld in every context.”

European countries are moving in the direction of more progressive legislation on this issue. Since October 2016, France no longer force sterilization on trans citizens to access gender identity recognition. Sweden abandoned the requirement of sterilization in 2013. The Swedish Government has recently announced that anyone who was forced to undergo sterilization to access legal gender recognition between 1972-2013 is eligible for compensation from the state in the amount of 225,000 SEK ($25,000).

Maria Sjödin, Deputy Executive Director of OutRight and former Execuive Director of Swedens largest LGBTQ organizations RFSL, comments, “Money can never fully compensate the suffering of those that were forced to undergo sterilization, but it is an admittance from the state that the requirement was a violation of people’s rights.”

Only four countries in Europe, Norway, Ireland, Malta, and Denmark currently have gender identity recognition policies that are based on the principle of self-determination without any medical requirements.
