i dont want to be offensive I'm just really curious. So if you were born in a female's body and you are attracted to females, but identify as a male, does that make you gay or straight or something else?

So, I’m going to provide you with some definitions:

  • Sexual orientation: a person’s sexual and emotional attraction to another person.
  • Gender Identity: innermost concept of self as male, female, a blend of both or neither – how individuals perceive themselves.

Regular

Someone else’s gender identity is not your decision!

You do not get to chose if someone does or does not identify as trans!

Do not try to push the trans label onto other people!

Amazing news! The New Hampshire House has voted to pass legislation adding comprehensive non-discrimination protections for transgender people! This is a historic win, and we’re thrilled to be a founding and leading member of @FreedomNH, the campaign to pass this bill. Share this to keep the momentum going through a Senate vote, and read more on what this means: bit.ly/2G439tk

Female, Male or Non-Binary: California legally recognizes a third gender on identification documents

Female, Male or Non-Binary: California legally recognizes a third gender on identification documents:

The state of California will now legally recognize non-binary as a third gender on official state identification documents.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed SB179 on Sunday night. The bill, dubbed the Gender Recognition Act, will allow a third gender choice on driver’s licenses, state identification cards, and make it easier for people to change their gender and name on state identification papers.

Non-binary, is a catch-all term for people who do not identify as exclusively male or female, and has been slowly acknowledged by some states as a gender option.

In June, the District of Columbia followed Oregon’s lead and began offering the gender-neutral choice of “X” on driver licenses and identification cards, and similar legislation is currently pending in New York.

Rick Zbur, executive director of Equality California, said in a statement that the bill puts California at the “forefront of ensuring the dignity and safety of its transgender, non-binary and gender-non-conforming residents.”

? TO QUEER TEENS/PRE-TEENS OF THE WORLD

?It’s okay to know your sexuality or gender at this age. ?

It’s okay to question yourself on this. ❓

There are SO MANY PEOPLE who have started questioning at your age or know for sure who they are and people have told them it’s a phase because of how old they are.

?️‍? YOU ARE NOT ALONE ON THIS. YOU MAY BE A TEENAGER OR CLOSE TO BEING A TEEN, BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN YOU CAN’T BE SURE OF WHO YOU LIKE OR WHO YOU MAY FEEL YOU ARE. KEEP GOING EVEN IF ADULTS TELL YOU IT’S A “PHASE.” THERE WILL ALWAYS BE HELP FOR YOU SOMEWHERE IF YOU DO EVER FEEL OUT OF PLACE. ?

Amazon Is Being Sued for Alleged Cruel Discrimination Against Transgender Employee

Amazon Is Being Sued for Alleged Cruel Discrimination Against Transgender Employee:

You’re move Amazon, if this is true, we’re all a little disappointed here…
_____________________

According to a recently filed lawsuit, a married couple faced persistent, cruel, and grotesque abuse at an Amazon shipping facility, and human resources did nothing to help.

The Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund (TLDEF) has filed a lawsuit on behalf of two former employees who allege that they faced sexual harassment and discrimination during their time at the company. Allegra Schawe-Lane, and her husband, Dane Lane claim that they were treated cruelly at a Amazon shipping facility in Hebron, Kentucky, from October 2014 to October 2015. The abuse allegedly began once the staff learned that Allegra is a transgender woman. The couple claim they made dozens of complaints to Amazon management and human resources in person, in written form, and through Amazon’s corporate hotline—but the company did not investigate or take action.

According to the suit, managers, supervisors and co-workers intentially referred to Allegra by male pronouns and called her slurs such as it, chick with a dick, shemale, Dane’s boyfriend, and tranny prostitute.

Allegedly one co-worker named in the suit sexually harassed both Allegra and Dane on multiple occasions. According to the suit, the co-worker brought both of them pornography and sex toys and propositioned both of them for sex; licked his lips while looking at Allegra’s groin; and “gyrated his crotch” on Dane’s butt.
