Legalize Trans Stamp by Spookeriffic Legalize Trans Stamp by Spookeriffic
I made a stamp for Legalize Trans, because what with all the emphasis there is on the LG and B, the T tends to get a little bit forgotten a lot of the time.

Before I get preachy and "tl;dr", I just want to say if you pick up anything from their store you'll be aiding with my transition costs, and every dime would be much appreciated. They've got tshirts, buttons, and a bunch of other cool swag.

While some of us are thrilled about the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell and the strides made in regards to marriage equality, we still struggle to get states to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act that will prevent employers for firing transgender employees simply based on their gender identities.

Trans people are more prone to violence, job loss, homelessness, poverty and suicide. Trans people have been beaten in public while simply trying to use a restroom. There are states with laws in place putting ridiculously high milestones for changing one's drivers license, birth certificates and legal documents for those who are post-transition. That is of course, if you can transition at all, since despite the American Medical Association and the American Psychiatric association both agreeing that transition is the proper course of treatment for trans patients, medical insurance still refuses to aid in the cost.

Please remember, while great strides are being made for the gay, lesbian and bisexual community, the trans community still needs your support, for our rights are lagging a bit further behind. Thanks.

Thanks! :)
trying to come out is as hard as being accepted...
It is hard being in a body you are uncomfortable in, very depressing.
Completely glad you made this :3

Where I'm from a transman is allowed to change his legal gender. The same for transwomen.

I was just randomly scrolling through pages, and managed to find this. I agree with it completely, being a male-to-female myself. I'm struggling just to get anything done at this point, thanks to my completely unsupportive parents. I've come out to them three different times but alas, somehow no matter how strong I stay with it, how much I explain, how much common ground I try to find, it never sinks in, and inexplicably they manage to "forget", and just act like everything is normal again two weeks later. Starting to think all the years of stress and problems have driven my mum mental. I digress, this is truly a wonderful stamp, and I applaud it's form and statement! :+fav:

ehhh... I'm sorry but when ever I see this icon all I can think of are the poor Scandinavians who have to get sterilized before allowed to continue their transition.
it terrified me and now I'm (indirectly) terrified of that icon.

It great you know what gender you are/want to be ^^

However, while i think it bs that people have to go through all the red tape to change their license, birth certificates, legal documents and be put through all that other crap, it isn't the responsibility of health care or insurance companies to get you there.

there are lower cost in other countries. 9 out of 10 times a passport and a plane ticket costs less than just walking into most clinics in the us. If I were you, I'd go to India. They practically invented the field of rhinoplasty and have a booming plastic surgery trade.

I wish you luck ^^
