This is my opinion and you not being comfortable with mine is yours. This does not bother me in the slightest.  I hope this does not make you too uncomfortable because you opinion has an extremely low chance as in nil of affecting mine in any way.  So in essence if my opinion does bother you....."You're gonna have a hard time!"{#Lol} 

And likewise, your level of comfort with anyone else's gender identity, sexual identity, or relationship with their doctor/surgeon/psychologist/milkman/music teacher/metermaid/butcher has little meaning to those people.  So be true to your 'rugged individualist' self and don't try to influence policy or opinion that impacts their ability to just be. 
 

Oh I am fully aware of this and never indicated that my opinion was anything but that, but it is mine.  I wonder if you have the same level of self awareness.

I'm fully aware of my many hypocrisies. But not really relevant as you're the one who started the morning posting a bit about 'everyone should be who I think they should be'.   
 
I believe I said everyone should be who they are, but you are free to interpret any way you like.  My sleep pattern will remain the same either way.{#Sleep}

New legislation in Kansas would pay students a $2500 bounty for reporting on transgender classmates using the “wrong” bathroom.

In Kansas, the “Student Physical Privacy Act” effectively places a bounty on the state’s transgender student population. Senate Bill 513 and House Bill 2737 together known as the “Student Physical Privacy Act” mandates that any student who witnesses a transgender schoolmate heading into a bathroom that doesn’t match the gender they were assigned at birth can sue their school for $2,500.

The proposed legislation would apply not only to public schools, but all public universities in the state as well, guaranteeing that anyone who saw someone transgender in the bathroom could sue their school for $2,500 for every time that it happened.

(...)

The Advocate reports that similar bills in South Dakota and Tennessee that would restrict transgender students’ bathroom access recently failed.

Trump’s Transgender Military Ban and Lessons from a Lifetime of Gender-Policing

By
January 23, 2019

When I was growing up, in the Soviet Union, every document—identity
papers, personnel files, student records, police reports, application
forms of every kind—contained the category of ethnicity. Mine said
“Jewish,” a characteristic as physical and immutable in the eyes of
Soviet law and Russian culture as gender is in most of the contemporary
United States. In the late nineties, years after the collapse of the
Soviet Union, when I was working as a writer at a liberal news magazine
in Moscow, I objected to the human-resources department’s use of old
Soviet forms that asked for an ethnicity. The H.R. staff couldn’t
understand my objections. Why would I not want to list my ethnicity? “We
won’t tell anyone,” one of them promised, trying to be helpful. My
efforts to explain to Americans why I don’t believe that documents
should list a person’s gender have generally been just as futile.

I'm so sorry about all that shit. Although Australia is still far from where it needs to be, even our conservative somewhat homophobic ex-Prime Minister Tony Abbott, was accepting of our highest-ranking transgender member of the Australian Defence Force, Cate McGregor. I think it was he could see her as a person, not a label.

 
Yep. She's pretty bad ass.
 
Our president doesn't seem to be able to do that. But then again, he's only interested in kowtowing  to his fan base.
 
I can handle his shit, but frankly, he's absolutely, unequivocally making trans children and their parents terrified for their future.

Sadly, I was wrong. The reality is that the trans community is being relentlessly attacked by this president. The leader of our nation has shown no regard for an already marginalized and struggling community. He has ignored our humanity. He has insulted our dignity. He has made trans people into political pawns as he whips up animus against us in an attempt to energize the most right-wing segment of his party, claiming his anti-transgender policies are meant to “protect the country.” This is politics at its worst. It is unacceptable, it is upsetting, and it has deeply, personally hurt me.


 
As another trans person, I can finally say...What the fuck took you so long Caitlyn? Didn't his actions regarding trans troops make you fucking mad as hell? Why didn't you stand up and say this then?
