I can't vote. If you can, you must Disenfranchisement and legal exclusion -- whether by race, gender, class, immigration status, or otherwise -- from our democratic institutions is one of the most significant failures of American society today. While universal suffrage remains an ideal yet to be attained, if you're lucky enough to be able to vote, don't let that privilege go to waste.

Yes, I'll get gender surgery. But I may still be punished for my suicide attempt I saw a photograph of myself shortly after my suicide attempt. Seeing this photograph has haunted me for the past week. It has disturbed me. It sends a chill down my spine. This hurt me more than any physical injury or hardship I have lived through. This process has forced me to relive one of the worst moments of my entire life.

Facing my fear: being in public as a woman for the very first time Being myself for a whole day taught me a few lessons: trying to meet the expectations that I believed were placed on me by society was unsustainable. I was miscast in the play of life, and it was urgent that I admit that, sooner rather than later. Joy, confidence and security can't begin until we are able to just be ourselves.

Transgender Troops Coming To Military Saturday, July 2, 2016      Share on Google Plus Submit to Twitter Add this Page to Facebook! Share on LinkedIn Pin It! Add this Page to Fark! Submit to Reddit Submit to Stumble Upon
It's right to end the ban on trans people in the military -- but wrong to set conditions Gender presentation should reflect the person that you are. When you lose control of your gender presentation you lose an important aspect of your identity and existence. By setting so many caveats, time lines, standards, and training, the military is making this far, far, more complicated and bureaucratic than it needs to be. The simple reality is that we are who we say we are.

We must not let Orlando nightclub terror further strangle our civil liberties Those who wish to continue campaigns of fear are prepared to cast an entire religion as hateful with no reflection on their own complicity in the many forms of violence the queer community encounters in the United States. We should not let their agendas guide our reaction to this senseless massacre.

Why I Keep Fighting I keep fighting to let people know that they too can create change. By staying informed and educated, anyone can make a difference. You have the ability to fight for a better world for everyone -- even for the most desperate, those at the bottom of the social ladder, refugees from conflict, queer and trans individuals, prisoners, and those born into poverty.

Solitary confinement is "no touch" torture, and it must be abolished The evidence is overwhelming that it should be deemed as cruel and unusual under the US constitution: solitary confinement in the US is arbitrary, abused and unnecessary in many situations. It is cruel, degrading and inhumane, and is effectively a "no touch" torture. We should end the practice quickly and completely.

When will the US government stop persecuting whistleblowers? A better approach for the government would be a Transparency and Accountability Task Force advocating for and protecting employees who have concerns. It would send a message to employees, military service members, contractors and department and agency heads that even if the official channels fail, those who raise concerns will still be protected, listened to and given the chance to speak out in a meaningful forum.

Privacy is a right, not a luxury -- and it's increasingly at risk for LGBT people I support Apple in its fight against the FBI: we should fight any government or organization that seeks to remove our community's strongest and most effective means to guard ourselves from discrimination, persecution, torture and genocide. Privacy is not a luxury in America: it is a right.

We must not let Isis's crimes dictate how we address the refugee crisis -- or privacy Federal lawmakers and dozens of state governors have called for the US to stem the flow of those seeking asylum from Syria, culminating in the quick passage of legislation in the US House making the approval of Syrian refugees into the US administratively difficult, if not impossible -- even though approvals of such refugees numbered less than 1,700 in 2014.

Same-sex marriage supporters rejoice Saturday, June 27, 2015 (2 comments)      Share on Google Plus Submit to Twitter Add this Page to Facebook! Share on LinkedIn Pin It! Add this Page to Fark! Submit to Reddit Submit to Stumble Upon
Same-sex marriage isn't equality for all LGBT people. Our movement can't end We need to send a powerful message to the world in a unified voice: that we can fight for social justice for everyone, everywhere and change the world, not just get married. We can continue to build our communities and address the root causes of queer and trans poverty and deaths. I am trans woman and I am here to recruit you to the next stage in the equality movement. Join me.

The US government still hides vast amounts of its national security actions from the public. Wednesday, May 6, 2015 (7 comments)      Share on Google Plus Submit to Twitter Add this Page to Facebook! Share on LinkedIn Pin It! Add this Page to Fark! Submit to Reddit Submit to Stumble Upon
We're citizens, not subjects. We have the right to criticize government without fear In a truly modern democratic republic, the suppression of the press and sources by criminal prosecutions cannot be tolerated. Then the US could no longer be used as an excuse by repressive governments around the world to say: "Well, they do it in America, too."

The U.S. Military's Campaign Against Media Freedom As Iraq erupts in civil war and America again contemplates intervention, that unfinished business should give new urgency to the question of how the United States military controlled the media coverage of its long involvement there and in Afghanistan. I believe that the current limits on press freedom and excessive govt secrecy make it impossible for Americans to grasp fully what is happening in the wars we finance. NYTimes
