With the recent things going on in the world, particularly in America with the new president in power, transgender issues are being called out once again and people are crawling from the woodwork to put in their opinion.
If you aren't someone that pays much attention to things going on in the world or in politics, Donald Trump and his administration are withdrawing protections for transgender people, with a large target being transgender children/teens in the school systems.
The people being affected are your friends and family, people around you are being marked as wrong and not deserving of the same rights.
One of the largest points is taking away the already limited protections for transgender people being able to use the restroom matching with their gender identity, something that is not only extremely uncomfortable but also puts people into potentially dangerous positions. It seems that these are the only times we hear about the lives of transgender people, when once again something is being done to fuck them over.
The lack of discussion causes people the hold the idea that trans people are just a myth, not existing and even if they did there's "barely any" which is so ridiculous that people could be that closed minded to where they think they can just pretend an entire group of people do not exist.
So, all in all, this is a call for you. A call for everyone to bring visibility and support to transgender people around you.
To help give them a voice and support them, and not talking over them.
I have seen many trans people in the petplay community, some are even on here, and acknowledging that transgender people exist and that they're human beings that deserve human rights is an extremely important issue.
I know this wasn't an explicitly kittenplay article, but I felt that this is a topic bigger than all of us and it actually does tie in as many members of the community are affected by this.
Hope you all have a lovely day, and remember to spread love and acceptance and set an example for others to follow. - Salem
