Navigating Hormone Replacement Therapy as a Trans Person

"The us healthcare system can be extremely difficult for trans folks. A lot of transpeople face medical discrimination. A lot of trans people can live in places where they don't have access to affirming providers or might not have insurance. Some trans people might have insurance. But it's might not be able to get procedures covered even if they have quote unquote good insurance. And that's an unfortunate reality. Even finding information about trans healthcare can be a challenge. You know just a lot of reporting on trans stuff. Tends to be by says people and this isn't always the case but a lot of the times that means like from the get go. It's kind of being portrayed in this light. That isn't actually geared towards transpeople. But is really more about centering. Says people that's james factoria a trance journalist who covers queer and trans news culture and health and they recently wrote a piece for vice called a beginner's guide to hormone replacement therapy gender affirming hormone therapy or hormone replacement therapy or each. Rt is basically just when you take hormones by any variety of delivery methods that can mean a shot or like a pill or a gel for example to align what you look like what you sound like to be more aligned with who you already know. You are and More colloquially a lot of trans people refer to it as a second.

"The code era was becoming more lax and we had whole film about You know we have this film some like it hot and you know. Of course tony curtis is played. Marilyn monroe's love interest zuni houston is gonna Guys of being woman because you know. Tony curtis' jacqueline leagues beyond These these players. Tony plays saxophone. Jack plays the cello for the base. And they win this. The down has day massacre and so they're on the run and they They need out of work and so the only way that they can find a way to get out of the city and then also get work is to impersonate girl musicians for a girl group. Which has this dumb blonde named sugar. And that's played by marilyn monroe of course jacqueline. You know tony person marilyn monroe we're gonna become love interests and they're really what it was more like a publicity vehicle for marilyn monroe when you look at it. But there's a hilarious subplot in the which between jack lemmon playing a character called daphne and this rich billionaire guy. That's like head over heels for this character and it's like an eye and it was hilarious because it's like at the end of the movie when they're running away from this mobster there on this boat at it's like no i can't marry you jock i can never have children. Oh that's okay we can adopt some. I'm horrible and i don't cut. That's okay. I didn't like food anyway. Oh gosh i'm i'm a man well. No one's perfect. And this is this whole thing. Words like his. It's it's just hilarious scene but it's saatchi believed queer storyline albeit for comedic purposes. Just for the fact comedy and this is like nineteen sixty three when this happened next is houston three. So yeah. that's my my big major stuff but if we have no other examples to think of during the code era i guess we can move onto postcode what we still got some time So yeah i guess. I can jump in under the code dissolves in nineteen sixty eight and then we also have the stonewall riots in nine hundred sixty nine and so i kind of like see like postcode post stonewall You guys can jump on. Correct me if i'm wrong. But i kind of see them as like essentially the same thing And you know you have more explicit explicit representation of the body of homosexuality and sexuality in general you know begin to the seventies we have the boom of the lesbian vampires ya. That's my my thing because you know hello queer here. Of course you know lesbians at school girls the thing you know you have the adaptation of carmella heavily being done in the seventies with the vampire lovers with the blood spattered bride with empires less boasts. you know in general just like the vampire lesbian. But i think what's interesting. Is that after post stonewall after the code is that we get your we're getting homosexual representation but now we're getting as the villainous and mantras queer right we're seeing Lesbians as these vampires we're seeing Transpeople as the psychotic killers psychopaths. Even though we're getting these representation it's also really critical to be looking at. What type of representation. What it trying to say about Queer people there's there's a lot of it's almost akin to softcore porn content that is queer in its in its composition. That's out there. You know you mentioned lesbian peers. But there's a lot of like exploitation films women in prison films Huge boom during that era. Postcode and you know an almost every women in prison film. There's always since of lesbian subplot where the prison guard..

Ianne Fields Stewart: The Okra Project

"The ogre project is pretty new for most people. Can you give us the Quick Synopsis. Of what they do. Absolutely it's a really great organization that is working to deliver these luxury free delicious nutritious meals to black. Trans folks and it's all prepared by black. Trans Chefs get paid to do that and I love in the interview that she talks about luxury in this idea of taking luxury and making it something that's accessible to the most marginalized people in the community and really excited for us to do this interview with you and Diane. Because you know there's been so many there's been so many stories lately in the media about over the Trans Women specifically dying during pride month and into July. We can't only report transpeople than media. When died we need to celebrate them when they're alive and admit E. N. is such a core thing. So I'm so excited like play her story on this podcast. Should we get to the interview? Yes I am so excited for everyone to hear the conversation we had. To this is Scott and e Enfield Stewart. Here it is. Still. Em thank you so much for joining me for taking the time. I'm just going to jump right in I. Really wanted to sort of learn more about the work that you're doing at the OCHRE project. Can you tell me a little bit about what it is and bring me back to where the ideas started? How did you come up with the idea? I was sitting on a couch in December two, thousand, eighteen in my home eating their ways a masculine person who was part of the organizing meeting and they were talking over me a bit and I really feel like I was being heard. So I put myself on mute and it turned my friend Nyla and I said Hey I have this idea and I had been thinking for a couple of weeks that I want to do something to give back to the Community because I knew that I was going to be going back to a home and family that raised me that I felt comfortable being my complete self with and I knew that that was a privilege that I possessed. So I said tonight you know what if we were to raise money through your fund that you've created, which is glad Trans Solidarity Fund and it's reparations group that is dedicated to shifting funds from the mainstream back into the hands of black transpeople. NYLA thought the idea was great. So we use those funds to pay a chef we worked with me August of Zadie kitchen. The I had the ideal Sunday on Monday a we had a meeting with Maliki Maliki greed. Our hope was raised about like five hundred dollars worked with a couple people. We released the project on a Wednesday and by Friday we had raised six thousand dollars all through individual donations. So we were totally blown away by and made the commitment then and there that you know, will you know run this thing to the wheels fall off and the wheels have now fallen off yet so here we are I'm wondering you know, why do you think there is such a resounding amount of support whicher analysis on that? You know it's interesting. I think that I constantly find myself shocked and puzzled by why and how people believe in the work that we do. It just seems so strange to be a part of something that people are actively saying, Hey, we believe in an Arlington we believe in it, but we want it to continue I think that part of it is that you know it. The idea of taking luxury and making it something that's accessible to the most marginalized people saga. I personally am very committed to interrupting this idea that luxury should be exclusive and rather making luxury something that is available to all people and most importantly to the most marginalized in our community. From you the idea of having you know a black trans. CHEF. Come into your home and cook a healthy home-cooked Pacific meal for you. Unit for black people in particular, the kitchen is such a place of familial lineage. It's a place of community place of love it's it's just were so so many things happen in so much a daily life occurs in the kitchen and so to have that kitchen be filled with someone who looks loves and lives like you as a luxury and a joy and builds community because you're not just having kind of this person who comes in and cooks for you and then leaves, but you're rather creating an experience of community where this person is someone who? Can become community. They can become chosen. Family knows what is possible when someone who looks loves and lives like you chooses you and prioritizes you and says, you are special and you are worthy of receiving this meal and you are worthy of sitting back and relaxing and has someone do for you and I think that that for a community of people who for so long have had to make everything out of nothing I think that's just such a gift and such a beautiful thing to have someone say I will do for you because you're worth it.

Sam Feder: Trans Lives On Screen (ft. Alex Schmider)

"I wanted to talk to you today because we're about to hear an interview with Sam Feder the director of the new. Disclosure and you are one of the associate producers on the movie. You're also the associate director of transgender representation at glad, and maybe most importantly you're my friend and I've heard you talk about this movie for maybe like two years, so tell me why has movie meant so much to you? I think working at glad and understanding the significance of representation, having an ability to conceptualize our history in terms of TV and film representation is crucial for the majority of the public everything. People have come to know about this community has been informed by TV and film, and so if we have no historical context or Lens to look through to understand how these images have contributed to our cultural understanding, than we don't fully understand the power of media and the power of storytelling and begun Netflix's not best case scenario, right? It doesn't get much better in terms of visibility, but I think. What our film also proposes to say is that visibility is only a means to an end it has to lead to material and real world cultural change so in that way it is critical and granted that in in different countries there are different cultural contexts, different legal systems, but for the first time in many cases I think a lot of people are getting to hear from transpeople ourselves about the media that we have grown up on in addition to the rest of the world. In you know one of those people. We see a lot as Laverne Cox and you know she she's a star. We see her red carpets and I think it's really easy for people who are not as familiar with the Trans Experience to see someone like her, and not not know that for someone in her identity group of Black Trans Woman that it can be a really dangerous world to live in, and in that sense like there's real urgency with this movie. Yeah, absolutely I mean, and it's also about the paradox of visibility, so the more that we are known the more that we are seen. The more likely that people may be enraged by our existence, and so we always have to sort of toe the line and understand that again. Visibility is not the end goal. Representation is not the end goal, but it helps us to get to a place of cultural understanding and acceptance, so that people can live their lives as they are safely with the paradox of visibility I think it's. It's such a nuance conversation to talk about, but do you think I'm wrong in I? Don't WanNa just I don't accept the violence, obviously for anybody in or out of our community, but do you think I'm wrong to think that all of the issues that come the visibility? Those are necessary hurdles that we have to deal with comes with visibility in there. There's no way around that. I disagree in some ways because I think when visibility is tied to responsible, accurate and authentic storytelling. Then we can actually counter. Cultural Backlash that is often tied to stories about us that don't involve us. The disability community coined this phrase that I use all the time. There can be nothing about us without us, and historically all the stories that have been told about transgender people have not actually involved us and so I don't believe that it's pure in black and white. That's such a good point, so you're saying and rightfully so that we are seeing issues. Come out of all this increased visibility, because the representation has been poor, it's been bad I mean when you watch disclosure, you will see a hundred plus years of what I would argue as misrepresentation. I really now that I've started really thinking about and looking critically at this history, most of it has been misrepresentation and inaccurately reflecting who trans people are who this community? Community is and also only focusing on the extremes of our experiences, whether it's Trans people only dying, and only being the victims of violence or only being on red carpets, and only being celebrated to the extremes, because there's a spectrum of experiences and I think when we're, we talk about representation, we want a the richness and the depth, and as Richard, said what we need is more so that when those clumsy or trope ish or stereotypical or shared representations show up. They're not the only thing we have to rely on not only for the public to see and understand who we are for. We ourselves as Trans people to see and understand who we

"Have you gone to? Protests? Recently if you have. What have you seen I have not gone this year for a couple of reasons covid. I personally am very uncomfortable. Going out in the midst of the crisis. I don't WanNa. Be Quite honestly black and sick and Trans in a hospital with Kobe. I? Just don't want to put myself in that position. That's not wise. It's not a wise thing to do given the hostility of our medical system to transpeople given the hostility of our medical system to black people. It's just not a good trick. And for that same reason, being black and trends, and by chance woman. I don't want to have an experience with the cars for will state. That is to say that I don't want to have. Anything to do with. The the cars roll system because of its harsh, disproportionate and unfair and dehumanizing treatment of Trans People. I think thirdly you know there's a real question that I've been wrestling with that I wrote about recently. in a much larger sense of whether or not Black Trans Women in particular should show up. In this moment, shouting black lives matter when in so many ways we understand that within the black community. Our lives are treated as if they don't matter. And as if they're undisposable. And there are so many ways in which the grief and the frustration and the sheer rage that people feel. which people feeling now around the death of George Foy which are totally fair know. I felt last year when there was a string of murders of Black Trans Women, last June and into July in particular, they started in May. and it was a really dark painful time, and I remember going to protest at that time for those women who died and were murdered and wondering where everybody else was. And, so I kind of feel that everybody else gets shop in this moment, right that there really valid reasons why, as a by transforming I am not out on the street and is very valid. There's so many other people that are showing up in this moment which I wholeheartedly support. Yeah, when and part of what you wrote about in that piece that you're referencing is This video that emerged of the Trans woman named IANNA DR being attacked convenience store by a group of black men I guess the first question is were? Where were you when you first saw the video? And what was your reaction was at home. I was at home and I. Think i. read the description of what happened. And then I saw maybe five or seven I didn't see very much of it because. It's really hard to watch what I saw shocks me, and then I learned a little bit more on just through some things on my feet that it was in Minneapolis. And that really struck me. Write that on the first day of pride. Month was the day that she was beaten. Minneapolis Saint Paul. Where those very same people are out in the streets, have been out in the streets or are supportive of people on the streets, demanding black lives matter demanding that they be seen as human beings. could engage in amassed humanization of someone else. Who is back at the time without a second thought was. Deeply, enraging to me. Deeply, fattening and terribly shocking. And when I decided that I wanted to write something about it. I went online and I actually found the entire. There's an entire twenty minute clip of the entire. Affair as it were, and there was a carnival like fear before they decided to beat her up, they actually had cornered her essentially in the convenience store, and like literally a carnival atmosphere, both inside the convenience store in the parking lot after they were done taunting her for twenty minutes and like. There was something about it and that moment where she was not treated as a human being. And that really got to me. You wrote in your piece that. Recounting xactly, what happened to Yana in the video is important. And allow discussion about how much should describe violent incidents like these where it can be triggering for people. So. I guess my question is. Why do you think it's important to really talk about what happened in detail? I think the part of the video that often gets displayed is the last part of. The beating rights of the beating actually starts in the back of the store, and then they can move in a semi circle to the front, and that front part where she's bent over and people are are on her is what's been getting played online, but the entire thing that leads up to that I think underscores the depravity of the entire event, and that depravity is really important to understand because it underscores the way in which. Black Trans. People are seen. and. We collectively as people right as humans have to reckon with that depravity. We have to see it. We have to acknowledge it, and we had to ask really hard questions of ourselves about how and why and we can't prioritize the death of black men, and at the same time ignore an even encourage the death of black. Trans Women and somehow believe that we're going to build a just society for everyone yeah. I. Mean You know we're? We're in this sort of extraordinary moment. Where more people than ever are open to the conversation about police brutality against black people and also just general inequality that exists for black people in this country What do you think the barriers are to making sure that violence against Trans Women of Color is included in that conversation. Yeah, I think the barrier is people saying human beings rather than freaks or objects of entertainment or

"Three two eight three six point six zero. I'm so sorry about all of the telephone number confusion tonight. That number is not a number. I've given out sits. I put an end to call to freedom back in like September of year when I was used to giving it out every day then I had to reorient myself to giving out free talks wives number and for a while. I was doing both and trying to remember what show I was doing at the time. So now I'm giving this number again in assist all very confusing as technical difficulties going on that. You're trying to get around by giving out a local number right and what you tonight. It's Aria Gray and nobody and a female fast ladies night out is actually what is called has officially reserved. It's kept site for a fork fest. Two Thousand Twenty and you can join liberty minded. Volunteers Anarchist Libertarians from June. The twenty ninth until July fifth for a week at Rogers Campground in the beautiful white mountains of New Hampshire. We also did it with bitcoin cash. By the way of course Rogers kept round. Doesn't take bitcoin cash but one of the planners of the group used the Bitcoin cash that we had in the wallet sent it to their bit pay card. I think has pay that. Has the little debit card. You can use those a couple but probably that one and they. They did it that way. So essentially we pay bitcoin cash for. It's very cool. Get One of those things so many of the places that I shop at take bit clean and Bitcoin cash directly though that. I haven't really had any need for it have you. Have you tried to sell it to to the guy at Walmart yet? Because I hear he's a toughy. I I have not meant to walmarts in a very very. I go to Walmart to pick up Walmart to Walmart payments from selling the coin. But that's it. I hate that apartment atrocious godless place. Where would I get thirty dollar boots with steel toes? No less Amazon and you can get them cheaper. You're going to ship direct to your house for free. If you have prime in today's annoy hefty. I and I I. I think they're probably GonNa speculate that you do. And if you want walk around the beautiful mountains while you certainly do that. And we're better to celebrate Independence Day than around other freedom loving activists in the Shire. You can just relax and go camping or you can create whatever experience or event you would like others to have. But if you're planning fork fest let others know in advance. You can connect with other fort festers via the unofficial telegram chat or they forecast for weeks to those are on the unofficial website. Fork FEST DOT party once more. That's work best DOT party fork. Like the eating utensil. As a play on a blockchain forks for those who? Don't get the joke when a blockchain splits like we're bitcoin cash split from bitcoin. It was called a fork and fork. Fast is a fork the porcupine hostels fork in the road. People just decided. Hey let's go do this. Other thing may have been used as kind of similar to the other. But it's a fork of it. I always worry that people think it's like a food festival called fork fast and at Pork Porcupine Freedom Festival right for sure I tabled. We're listening on the radio can hear clearly what we're saying. Yeah I prefer to call it. The forty fine freedom festival yeah. That's not confusing it. All thanks rich. Everything's confusing could God. So we're talking about a TEPA commies versus fascists versus and are co capitalists versus libertarian versus white men versus white men versus a transplant. Bright red hair versus of no. None of them are. There's a lot of overlap between all of these groups. A lot of these quote ANTIFA members are fascist under a different color hats. They don't OPPOSE FASCISM THEY OPPOSE DONALD. Trump's version a fascist. They want Bernie Sanders version. I don't think they know what they oppose if they did. They'd be opposing taxation by theft. All these problems go away. But that's not what they were trained for. You teach them. I and DADS. The dads the sad thing is people. People made them the way they are intentionally. I don't know that that's I don't know how true that is. Because so many of these same elements were attempting to make me play like you were saying. You were brought up to be racist. I was born and raised in Mississippi. Brought up the same way. I'm not a racist today. No father hates gay people in transpeople. I don't hate gay people in transpeople so they tried to make me into that. That's what they know. Yeah but you don't have to be what anyone else tries to make you. You can always be your own person. You don't but you know consider how stupid the average person is and then consider that half of them are stupider than that. I don't think the average person is really that stupid. I think they just don't want to use their brain because they've been conditioned to making that being smart is not cool. The math jokes though which is half of people are below average always by metric. I mean that's the definition of everybody is going to see me. We can't ask. They're not everybody can see past their conditioning. That's where I disagree. Everyone can they just choose not to? I don't believe that a person with an Iky of one hundred fifty s inherently smarter over. Consider this one with an IQ of one hundred. I think the person with the IQ of one fifty has simply train themselves to use their brain. More efficiently by the brain is an organism. Must Allio Viper Jordan Peterson? Talk about that and it's like You know some people just have won the genetic lottery you know. Some people genetically are smarter than others. So the whole idea the whole idea that everybody ain't going to be a doctor you know you're going to have some ditch diggers. Whatever the case. I mean anybody who tells me. There's no genetic component to intelligence. I'm like great. Let's go teach particle physics to that horse. Sure there's a person a man but jeans. There are significant differences between a horse inside but all all arise from the jeans if a Horse Adam Barnes DNA it would be a man and if a man had a hearses DNA. It would be a mess. So there's clearly a genetic component to intelligence sure but it's not one that is deterministic. You cultivate a tremendous. Yeah and I think that's where a lot of the Nazis go wrong as they think they say stupid asinine things like people from Somalia have accused of eighty nine or whatever it is that they say I don't remember the exact number even though they loved. Oh and get out there and they love doing when they call the show. I don't remember the number. But it's it's a silly metric. I think because the brain is you know I was saying it's a it's a muscle it can be exercised that can be cultivated. No doubt I think it definitely can be. I think it definitely can be cultivated and you know but but I also think there's there's a strong is genetic component to you know a lot of things about us if there wasn't the you know evolution wouldn't work well. I've ever reasonably intelligent person. I'm actually a member of Mensa so I'm technically but you're the one sixty ish ruined fifty. Yeah my father. Mother both imbeciles right. That is by choice. My mother was stupid enough that She continued doing truck's long after she knew it was going to kill her and then ended up did hooking up with someone who did in fact murder her. My father is exactly the same way. Relation to intelligence addiction is completely. I would strongly disagree. Intelligences self-discipline are strongly linked. I would suggest now. You're pretty sure they knew what they were doing was bad for them and they just chose not to make that decision to make things better. I mean my neither one is neither one is missing material. At any rate neither one is missing material at eighty rates. You wanted to genetic lottery actually. It's it's one one thing that they have noticed as alcoholics do tend to have above average intelligence. And when you thank someone who material okay. Well I don't care. I never met them. All I'm saying is to say all addicts they're stupid addicts or stupid. I.

What really happened so at thirteen? There was a girl at school. Presumably that you liked. Did you tell her that you know I was studying like everyone I think is? Is that my sexuality? Always been like a won't the elicit thing on the saying I'm not meant today once a Catholic school. So maybe that's so you're not meant to go out with women but then once so as like very established in the lesbian community. It's like Oh you're allowed to go out with women now. So that's not fun anymore for how Lesbians Hate is shackled men. Let's go to that and then once it was like Oh Giannis just bisexual or okay. So now I'm allowed to Shag out everyone on so where to go. Now so did you. Really get flack from les pins than for food. Let me yeah. Yeah Yeah I was angry. Sort of twenty something. You get more people on the late. I didn't see you face. Those quad knock ECOWAS land. I wasn't this wonderful chairman. Of course you got loads of like bi phobia. I go threatened and stuff life performance pride and do stuff about bisexuality and go like threatens and the Beer Garden say threatens me and you know when you think Oh my God. I'm going to get my kicks usually annoyance and like some people get an annoys for being in Chris Vices or existence in general and then you got like straight people alike. Think just think that it means the Kinky and you WanNa go fronts while I watch so. Why is it so difficult for people to comprehend? I've never really understood. It's just proud. People love binary is learning. People are obsessed with like extremes. The idea that the world's and people are just very gray area and everything's fluid scares the shit our people because humans needs the categorize things like pick a solid any side. Exactly you feel miserable. Yeah it's just don't give a Shit. Choose one very very similar to the football analogy. Yeah it's interesting. I know why phobia exists. I've certainly dated a lot bisexual. Men over the years and a half off lesbian friends. Turn around and go Emma. Why are you bothering? Yeah and the assumption is. They'll never commit to you. Because in the end of the day they will go up and find him on these sump. Shen and then I guess in straight world. The assumption is for men that you're going to go off and leave them for women so you can just want you have kinky sacks. Yeah yeah difficult so you haven't told me yet. The conversation over brookside. What happened to be here for us? So let's go back in time and they were just like okay. It wasn't a difficult kid but I was fucking whimsical. You know thought could fly. It was a more lowest much so they were just like okay okay. I think they saw us. It was a phase but because it was a faizy kid not because they were pricks. And you said you couldn't say reverse bisexual. So how did he phrase it? What did he say? I sat this girl. I such as my girlfriend but then you start talking about what she really Alfred portion on you have to keep coming out so it was. It was years I was being bisexual. I would say it was bisexual swell the people and then Owens University and I was so excited about joining and it was just the algae bay then feel old. I was so excited about being around people and then I got there and it was like Oh okay. You know survival instincts that sends us and you like folk. I should say. Espn so then.

"And so I went there the next day and we sat on her back and talk for hours and hours and hours like four or five hours in her husband. John was there. And that's when Jen told me about where she was in her advocacy which was the youth. Space It was before I was in the youth space since she started to tell me about this idea about sharing positive stories of young people that identify as transgender. She mentioned gender. Cool as an idea name I was immediately. I said at you know you had me at hello or something like that. Like it didn't matter. I realized her positivity and her ideas of sharing positively were the same as my own Which was the catalyst for the letter that I sent to her. And so there was this synergy instantly where her family knew me prior to transition and I know new her children and her child. Chaz you before she transitioned so there was this open understanding an immediate connection. I think that when John and I talk about it now when we look back in the idea of what's really going on here that the mom and dad of young person that identifies as transgender has teamed up with an adult that identifies as transgender that also is raising children and as a family unique but parallel perspectives but from different spheres of understanding so we cover a tremendous amount of experience. I've never raised a transgender child in watching Jen. Raise her children. John Raise Chassis Is Incredibly affirming for me. I get to peek into a life that I didn't have as a child and what that might have been like for me and their family in return gets a peek at what their daughters life may be like when she is older. So there's this synergy that happens between our family is that is truly beautiful and I'm incredibly grateful to know them that that's an amazing story and I liked the fact that it's you're pudding both your perspectives into you. Know like you said. You'd never raised a trans trial but you do identify as transgender. And you know they are. The you know are raising their Trans Child. But they don't identify a stringent. It's an awesome thing to put together to put out there in. You know the and a way to Because I think like I don't have an accepting family At all that yeah. I've talked about it before on the podcast and I think that if we if you heard regardless if it's coming from the youth but I think the youth is incredibly important because it's our next generation But hearing it from them that they're not all these crazy stories that you hear in the mainstream media about transgender people and I think that my family in particular has seen so much of that and like you said when you go Google transgender. I mean not good things. Come up right And I remember 'cause I I'm thirty four. I transitioned for years ago and I realized I was Trans when I was about twenty. I always knew something but I didn't actually have a word to put with it until is about twenty and I remember when I first started looking in how I was like. Oh no this is. And then of course I dealt with my own internal transphobia from an I think if we could get more positive experiences out there because I remember I go to a local support group. Here that's put on by a therapist and I remember the first time I went and saw a Emmett. Another trans person and talk to somebody that had in accepting family and realize that you know it is possible these these things do happen out there and I remember how laid it I felt because I I felt so terrible on the inside in you know not having an accepting family was really hard for me. It it to here in so when. I hear stories like from the champions and from other parents and other children and even other adults it it makes me feel good even though I might not have unsettling one. I'm extremely grateful that other people do. Yeah I think I feel the same way as you. You know kidnapped. My heart breaks for people that have families that don't that too they are. And you know the idea of Trans Phobia in internalized transphobia. I do a lot of trainings. Outside of the General Project itself and I talked very candidly about my own experience. I say to people you know. It would be disingenuous of me to say okay. I transitioned now get on board and you should understand you know because when I zoom out as I said I came out twenty three years ago but it took me twenty five years to do that then so the idea that I came to understanding about myself. The didn't happen overnight. It felt like it did. Once I accepted who I was. It felt like okay now I got it. That's one night That it came into focus but it really wasn't entire lifetime in when I look at other people and their experiences and when I say that I didn't have any negativity shr have many friends from my past that I don't speak to any more but not because they wished me ill. Well it's because will I don't hang out with men anymore? The ride you. We're circle of friends changed because about dude and so like lots aspects change but not because of my transition directly not because it wasn't accepted. It's just the reality of how we run the world you know. Our people communicate and effect. They're much happier right with the Group of friends. I have now because the Seaney for who I am and my old group of friends. See Me for who I am. But it's different. You know as only a trans person can understand you change so many things that you didn't think were GonNa Change and the things that that don't change you thought we're going to change a huge amount rape so you never really know Knelt happens no and so in the trainings and stuff that I do. I say to people you know very openly that acceptance doesn't come from understanding right if you're waiting to understand the transgender experience in order to accept it. Good luck because I identify as transgender. I don't understand it. You know at least the question. That's so many people ask which is like. How did you know who you were and I say to people you know? Well how do you know who you are you know? I don't think it's a question anybody can answer and to me. That's really important to stay. You know you don't know who you are. We're always evolving. We're always changing. I say that all the time. Yeah you know so to say to someone in the LGBTQ community. How do you know who you are? I think it's an unfair question. And you know I always bright back at him. Well how do you know who you are? And how did you know who you know? Oh you're straight how do you know you're straight well just because I know I'm not attracted his. You know the same sex okay. Well maybe you will be eventually you number now. Things evolve people change. You know he you were once a baby. Are you still a baby like things happen? Yeah Yeah and I think that's a question that we get a lot You know I remember when I first transitioned. I got that question. Like how do you know like I remember? My grandma was like. Are you sure I mean when I came out of Lesbian? I can't tell you how many times she asked me when I was a teenager. Are you sure you sure? And then I'm like I can't explain it. I just this is who I am. I mean there there is no solid. You know explanation as I can't give you something to write it down on paper and I think they wanted in black and white and it's not it's grey or it's a rainbow of colors. You know there is there. It's not black and white in the words aren't right. It's like they want to say I want to understand something that you don't even understand but the reality is. I want to accept something that I could never accept. That's what they're trying to say is in the navy. They believe that they can't accept it because they don't understand it and that's just like any other experience. You can't imagine what it feels like. Twos skydive on you. You people can talk about it all day long but until you jump out of that plane yourself you will never have that experience in their poor. Your Liberty truly understand what it's like so you know. The perspective is strange around the conversation about gender identity specifically and then break it down even more into sexual orientation. It's the same kinda thing you know. How do you know Boy? It seemed like it. Answer that question about using A. I think that goes with anything like I. It drives me crazy when somebody says Oh. I completely understand where you're coming from but really you don't like my day job. I work with people who have HIV and AIDS. I don't personally have HIV or AIDS. So I can't I don't know what it's like to be in their shoes so You know I think the same thing goes for. Trans people are LGBT Q. People that you unless you're in your shoes you don't know what it feels like. And I think that that's a misconception. A lot with you know Transpeople and so. It's it's it's an interesting topic but I agree. If if somebody could answer that question they might be a billionaire. I keep trying to figure out parallels you know out of how our community talks. You know languaging to me is incredibly important. Because that's where that's where the conversation takes place the narrative. How do we talk about gender identity? How do we talk about sexual orientation and I think that we've been doing okay for the last decade? But it's time to change that narrative into insert positively. Yeah.

"The parade. John. Right. The woman. They do not right women. Right men. Because to do something. Sylvia, Rivera, speaking at the gay pride March in nineteen Seventy-three dean Spade, tell us a little bit about Sylvia, Rivera, that many people may not know, the Sylvia Rivera was Puerto Rican translate in who was a really powerful activist her whole life. And she, she's one of the people who at the stone wall rebellion nineteen sixty nine that's kind of event. That's commemorated every year in most cities for pride. What's really remarkable Sylvia was at she lived during this period where kind of like a lesbian and gay aim to mainstream for emergency. Golly. Get lesbian gay nonprofits evidence advocacy, and they didn't want to be associated transpeople and they didn't want to be associated people in prison people of color. They wanted to make themselves look respectable. And therefore they kind of created a more conservative politics. That's kind of a mainstream game, lesbian politics. We've been seeing most visibly for the last thirty or forty years, we wanted to in the military wanna get married like this kind of stuff. And so there was a very active. Marginalizing kicking out of people like Sylvia, and meanwhile, people like Sylvia and other women. She worked with they were doing direct on the ground support for very poor transpeople for homeless transpeople for people in jails and prisons, they were working closely and associated with other groups that cared about those issues in their time like the Black Panther party and the young lords. And to me that work of like actually care about people who are facing the most crisis and doing direct support. Like how can we get you in apartment? How can you stay with me tonight? How can we come visit you in jail? That is actually the core work of transfer viable that I think we need right now and have needed the whole time that many of us have been involved in are involved in groups like black and pink that all around the country, how people rate again, lesbian trans prisoners. People groups like Sylvia, there are lot project. I provide direct support homeless transpeople that kind of work as the winning to do whether Obama's and Hoffa or whether Trump is in office that basic unity work, and I think that's a key move right now. It's like what we need from transpeople. And from our allies is not just kind of. Prek LeMay that you love us, we actually need to get involved in your local community and look at the ways in which fancy are surviving. And what can we do to support each other because the existing mechanisms of safety like aren't there? And so, I think that's Sylvia is a deeply inspiring figure for so many of us who is homeless a lot of her life. She face a lot of marginalisation from lesbian gay people, and she stood up against racism against poverty against criminals, Asian Sylvia, Rivera's life is also captured in a great documentary called the death and life of Marsha p Johnson fans of one. I may remember that we discussed that film, with the filmmaker David France, you'll find that conversation on Marsha p Johnson..

"Democrats will be Democrats. I think we've established that again and again. But therapy donkey's. Honestly. They had those in Tijuana, don't they therapy donkeys? So I've heard. The college fix has the story. University provides therapy donkeys to students ahead of final exams. They were doing at Johns Hopkins to prepare for exams, there will gluing themselves to things or something weren't they? They were shackling themselves to an administration building they were locked in there because they don't want to have any campus police or something that was it. Right. And then the trans people laid down in front of the police vehicle because the police vehicle wasn't for trans people. It was for male people or something like that. That's how they prepare at Johns Hopkins. I I remember when you heard Johns Hopkins used to think, oh, man that's spoil. You went to Johns Hopkins. That's pretty good. Now. It's transpeople shackled to things laying down in front of police vans. Because they don't want the university to work with ice or have campus. Police that was it right now. It's pretty much. University. This is not Johns Hopkins, it's a different one. But they're kind of you know, there's a lot of the similarities there are a lot of similarities between the campus. University provides therapy donkeys to students had a final exams. That's right. The state university of New York Plattsburgh recently brought in a small herd of miniature donkeys, you wouldn't want to have the full size donkeys. That'd be too frightening trigger people that have panic attacks. And so you have just the tiny ones, which would only freak out some of them. I think brought in a small herd of miniature donkeys to help students cope with the exiled and pressure that comes with typical end of semester responsibilities such as tests and massive ten page papers that are due. How did anyone ever get by before this generation? I it's almost impossible to imagine a video of the recent festivities that the SUNY campus that's what they call state university of New York, SUNY campus showed students laughing petting and playing with little donkey's with Ken be saw of therapists, telling a local AB. See affiliate spend, ten minutes with them and you'll chill right out. Cher. My therapy. Donkeys everybody should have can you? Bring your therapy. Donkey on airliner when you travel. No. It's my therapy. Arkie real hit us. Well, I used to have the miniature donkey, but then I had to switch to the full size therapy dorky. This is my therapy camel. I've got bring it on my flight. Otherwise, I'll panic when take off well therapy may sound unique. It actually taps into something of a trend. Consider that therapy Llamas made an appearance at Stanford University earlier this year as the school plugged that's wellness app. They they have a wellness app. Because really how did the children of today survive the difficulty of going to school? This point that donkey should be petting them to come. I think that the students are more. What's more university officials frequently offer a variety of opportunities for students to distress before final exams each semester. Among the offerings last semester where therapy horses coloring. Remember, the coloring they've run in coloring books and crayons for college students because they thought it would help them come down. And it turns out it did because there's a lot of instability out there. And these are the people that Bernie and ASC look to as voters. I promise you Trump. These are not Trump voters. Well, I went to the coloring book. And then I petted the therapy. Donkey and then I went to the polling place voted for Trump say that didn't happen that didn't happen. Once not a single temp really a big fan of Reagan and therapy Llamas. No, I don't think that goes together. Well. They had coloring books. They had massages and fortnight turns don't even ask typically campuses host events called de-stress fests and the name of keeping students saying under- pressure. What happened drugs and alcohol? Come on. Just. Just act like normal college students find a girlfriend find a boyfriend by a bag of pot. Get a case of beer shut up. Just just take your test and act like a normal person. Would you? Speaking of what we have Chuck Schumer and Hakim Jeffries, congressman, king Jeffries, and Senator Chuck Schumer over their hair grows on the outside of his nose calling for the decriminalization of marijuana nationwide. It's it's a trend and and Schumer. He doesn't wanna be behind. Even though it has glasses at the end of his nose all day all night as being man, I just a little several from around the country. But the Democrats we'll get to the shimmer. We have Schumer audio on this too. But right now, let's go to manderson poo poo per and his and his pal James Comey. They build it as a CNN townhall. This was no he didn't need a therapy. Donkey I can tell you this much because there were no stressful questions. It was just kind of reclined and chairs with their legs cross. And. Yeah, hey Anderson. Hey, Jim, I guess I'll see you at hot tin roof on Martha's Vineyard later this summer yet. You betcha you will. Remember that kept telling us Komi was a Republican. Notice that they stopped talking about that. They stopped talking about that a long time ago if that was ever true at stop being true a long time ago, and I really don't care one way or the other because that's not really an important thing. But but never mind all that. Remarkable stuff. I was we were going to we're going to set it to music this morning. We were talking about setting to the mini Richardson song loving, you know, many riverton with the squeaky voice love, and you I can't even try to in person at that. But we're going to set the James Comey. Anderson Cooper interview too, many riverton singing loving you because it would be the appropriate background music. But without the music, we will play the audio for you. Nonetheless. Anderson Cooper asking because this hasn't been litigated and dealt with. And now anybody can check any dictionary eighth Assawra sits right there. Surveillance and spying are synonyms. I don't know how many times to say. But Anderson Cooper who went to all the best schools. You know, he's a billionaire as mother was Gloria Vanderbilt. His grandfather was Cornelius her great grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt, the the largest private home in the United States is his family. It is a family home. It's in North Carolina. He can use it on weekends and stuff. It's still a family at take the helicopter down land on the grounds. Use the the giant sprawling superman Shen biggest private hasn't. This is Anderson Cooper's like, it's good stuff. He bought a firehouse in in in New York City as like playroom for him and his friends it got penthouses. And he let's okay, God bless him. I don't think he pays his fair share in taxes. Anderson Cooper and his buddy Bill bar. They'll meet up again later this summer in the Hamptons, and you know, the season you got to move around a little bit from Muslims vineyard to the Hamptons. And and Anderson Cooper, and and his pal James Comey asking about William barred daring to use the word spying sounds fine. Why do you think attorney general bar use the words line, which is care that the president is used as well? I can't explain it. I mean, the only explanation I can think of is he used it. Because the president uses it, which is really disappointing. He knows better than that. And knows the FBI conducts electric surveillance by going to federal judges and getting warrants based on probable cause. And so that they can spy on them because electric surveillance, spying and human intelligence gathering spying. You know, I covered the CIA when I was in the news business for ten years to the extent that you can cover the CIA and west station at the Pentagon. My office was in the Pentagon for tenure, and the fact that there is still. Circling the drain on this idiocy is beyond. My ability to understand what Eric Holder said that he was Barack Obama's wingmen. Remember that his Barack wingman? And the media had these wing band. His I wanna go I wanna go cruising for chicks with them. There's here's wingmen and also Anderson Cooper in the question teed up the response. So why does he why did bar because bars the villain now? They got they gotta get they gotta get barreds bar because he's not with the program. He's not singing from the sheet music, so time to get the attorney general and everybody has to go to jail, the president's family, the attorney general they're talking about jailing, the attorney general the other day. I played the audio at number of democrat members of congress and CNN pundits handcuffs and jail and prison Pelosi with the overcrowded jail with all the administration officials because he's obeying the law bar, and and if you read the questions and the answers on Capitol Hill told the truth, but never mind that they're still lying about that on CNN MSNBC this morning as well. But Anderson Cooper said well, why does he use the word spy, obviously, the president used it? And then Comey says, well, I don't know. I can't explain that. The only reason I think of is that the president it. Hey, I guess you guys are on the same page your peas in a pod your carrots and pace, you guys are. And by the way, James Clapper was the director of national intelligence under Barack Obama and you've ever remember just a few days ago. He said this, I guess it miss the dictionary definition of spy of surveillance or spying term. I don't typically like I don't care whether you like the term or not I again, I go back to technical term versus terminology in common usage. Doctors may call your heart attack, a myocardial infarction, but it still a heart attack. And if anybody in this city has dictionary source or maybe access to the internet where those texts are available absolutely free of charge to you. Thanks to Al. Gore. Peace be upon him. You can go ahead and confirm what Clapper said, and what I've said in what everybody with to brain cells to rub together knows. And that is the word surveillance is a synonym for the word spy, and the fact that they're still talking, but this is what Madison poopers getting to again, did he get to as Roma Turk Santan as a honeypot to dry to get information to try to pump George popadopoulos for information. And by the way, that was before any of the FIS words warrants had been requested. And and popadopoulos had been invited Cooper didn't look at the time line because the claims that they're making don't hold up. If you look at the timeline, they're still claiming that the reason the investigation started us because popadopoulos told an Australian diplomat in London that and this is why it started right in London that the Russians might have Hillary's emails. The thing is he popadopoulos was in London because he had been invited to London by Stefan helper who is an FBI operative a covert undercover human intelligence resource, right? That's what confidential informant and he lured popadopoulos where he then some how coincidentally encountered the Australian diplomat who then coincidentally fed information back to the FBI after popadopoulos had been lured to London by the FBI where this Turk woman whose real name. We don't know. We don't know what agency of what country she works for. I guess the Obama administration. But that's remarkable stuff. But Anderson Cooper didn't get into any of that inconvenience stuff because that's not the businesses and his in the business. It's like one of those infomercials where you know, a former ABC morning news anchors sits down with somebody from diet company. And they say, oh, so you lost five pounds. Tell me how it was like that. That's what manderson and combing let sending a an investigator undercover to meet with of somebody who is connected to the campaign. They claimed he was later on just a coffee. Boy. I don't think they is an extreme step. No, no. It's a reasonable that. That was the guy popadopoulos who was the subject of the information. We got from the Australians that he had talked to the Russians. See now, if Anderson knew anything about anything he'd say, but wait a minute. If you say that he took the Australian in London. And that's why the investigation started the timeline doesn't make sense. Because you had already invited him to London by way of Stefan helper who is an F B I operative hasn't that true? And then oh gosh. Now, he's got an answer a question. But that's not what you get. And I don't believe they called popadopoulos a coffee boy that was what Bill Clinton called Barack Obama. That's a different thing altogether few years ago. He'd be getting coffee for us. That's what they were calling him there. Anderson Cooper there. Now what it's eight hundred former federal prosecutors have worked. Who've signed talking plenum Muller's findings would have produced obstruction charges against President Trump. If he weren't president, you know doubt. The FBI story and Komi grace. It's not even a question. The question is do you agree with the phrasing? That I lifted directly from the New York Times report that was planted by democrat party apparatchiks that ginned up an online survey where anti Trump former government employees signed on. And there are many thousands of former prosecutors several hundred signed up an online thing who cares completely irrelevant pooper. Do you think he should be charged when he's out of office? Muller has shown the Justice department serious? Look at that. Whether it's a wise thing to do to a former president, I don't know..

This question from Michael just DJ -ing. It turns out that it's a real sticking point for the investors. They wanna know if DJ -ing is the best use of VR. Here's Phil can you back for executives? Of course. Explain for the why you chose the creative sphere rather than the industrials fear when we built tribe. We want us about something that we ourselves. We're going to use the from frost because it's always best when you wake up in the morning. You guys said what can you feel that you building something that's going to change web? Fia sounds for other people. I'm getting excited about the idea VR training. You got me on that one. Then you choose DJ. And I'm like, oh, okay. Mean it's cool ten out of ten but your moneymaker. I don't get it think think less cool than what you're doing. What is it has to be co? Well, you know, I'm trying to step away from trying to like, I sometimes, you know, the boring nuts involves, you know, non sexy. Businesses are just ridiculously profitable. So why did you choose that one as the hot spot to make money? It's a much bigger market than you would think number one. So there's an estimated hundred billion DJ's Renoir out not only that. But if you look at the way, the wild acts every day like people listened to musical at the time. But why do you think DJ's would pay for training with I do or really people's found a lot of money on this? This is a high without this app. Right now, you're telling me DJ's, go out and hire other deejays to train them practice a big money maker..

"And sixty four video game Donkey Kong sixty four and decided he would raise money for mermaids. And also spite Graham linemen and do this like fifty six our twenty four seven twitch stream. I did not know that was why he was doing it. Yes. So it was a charity based twits dream to raise money for mermaids to like, you know, basically, make fun of grandma Graham linemen and invited a couple people on he invited. The original voice of Donkey Kong who is notable. For on the stream saying the words trans rights in donkey Kong's place, which feels on brand for Donkey Kong trade energy. Then in a shock Alexandria. Casey. Oh cortez. Joined the twitch livestream. What are you gonna teen? Honestly, like two I'll be expected trans rights, and why Democrats need to center trans right say, here's what she had say. Here's just some like clips from the stream added layer of discrimination. It makes these issues much more acute in their crises than than the usually are on average for other people. And so so it's important that we that we do talk about these issues in the economic frame, but not let go the fact that that discrimination is is a poor reason for the economic hardship. Okay. So in like, the frazzled video game dudes trying to talk to the politician lady. She basically says that like economic anxiety is a major concern for trans people. We need to focus on housing. And the reason there is housing and economic disparity is because of discrimination. That needs to be regulated and put protections in place for transpeople. She then also said this about video games. Remember, this is an elected official of our elected official government. I continue. I never owned and sixty four though, I do think it's probably the best system out of all of them. I never owned and sixty four, but I used to go to my cousin's house all the time and she had Super Mario sixty four poke Amman snap and probably a handful of other things. I guess that's probably all I know how to play. Fantastic. Please. What you're saying was really important. I said that that was a poor taste joke. Please please do continue. Yeah. I just I just want to say that like one of the biggest things that I find with the cramps community like for me personally is like house is like issues the biggest. Okay. So I personally want to say I did not expect a congresswoman to get on twitch life scream to talk about Pokemon snap. But we're here. I just again. I the optics of it like I don't understand why survival. Yeah. There you go. Yeah. It's just like. Well, it's like when you see like, you know, paid over workover getting like his t's done, and they're like and people are like, ooh. Like daddy with the eyebrows in the replies. And it's just like it's like this bait to themselves in two spaces that they don't understand. I just I mean, listen, I think it is ballsy, and I think it's honorable, and I think that it is exciting to see a politician try to enter conversations in places where political conversations are usually fraught and also non-existent with elected officials liking, we've never had an elected official go on like a video game livestream, no out policy. There was I think at its height like fifty thousand viewers on that livestream. That is a line. There are politicians who would pay a lot of money to even get fifty thousand people in a room to talk policy to so in. In that sense. I think it was exciting because it was like we can actually find new ways to like Greek people online without having to resort to like. 'cause like when have you ever actually ran into a politician stumping for themselves like, you know, when you watch these political documentaries, and there's all these people at rallies, and there's only people that are getting surveyed like as an average American. I've never once come into contact with any of that. When I wasn't like actively canvassing for anyone lying that is such a world that is so removed for most Americans select actually a politician trying to find a way to like engage with the every person online is exciting. But at the same time, it's a little wild to watch this person who is a rising star in congress, the one eight twitch.

"FM. Chad Benson loves lemonade. No wonder his show is two parts tart to one part sweet time for a refill. Cheers. The CDC says so far this flu season between six and seven million. People have gotten sick with thirty states reporting widespread flu activity, despite this hospitalizations remain relatively low the CDC says between sixty nine and eighty four thousand people have been hospitalized due to the flu. And the overall hospitalization rate is about nine per one hundred thousand cases, compare that to the same time last year when it was about thirty per one hundred thousand cases, this is the first time the CDC has provided these estimates in the midst of flu season. Yeah, it is ugly. And you listen to it. Remember, I was eighty thousand people died last year. Because of the flu. We don't talk about. Like today parkland. The new governor onto Santa's said we've had enough of you sheriff Israel, for the way, you handled parkland you're done, and and he's out he goes, and there's these debates on gun rights, and and and all the second amendment in the fight that goes on eight eighty thousand people died from the flu. There was no CNN CNN doing a town hall about the flu tonight on CNN. We debate the flu though there it, but these are things that affect us all and even when people get it. Remember, this will always try to tell everybody I was talking to Jim Sharpe. Because he was sick on his holidays. And I got the flu I was down for the count because I got a flu shot, even if you're part of those people who gets the flu shot, and then goes on to develop the flu having gotten the shot will protect you from the severe complications. Yeah. And that was the good thing because he said he wouldn't have got it. He would have been really a mess, but it helped him a little bit. Young kids people that have compromised immune system, and the elderly gotta watch out. But there's no politics behind it. That's what I say. There's no politics like nobody could say well, did you guys hear that? The flu is racist. Here's what. Yeah. Yeah. It's trans transphobic. It doesn't want to. So what does it mean? Is it trans like doesn't want to be around transpeople? This is the flu we talked about the flu. Like, that's the stupidity. Of where we are. We're debating things like border security, and all of these things we have government that is just a joke at times, and that's usually been kind to them.

The plus Andy Reid in his history in the playoffs. Yeah. They tend to choke. Guide. Whether they're at home our way, does it matter. They tend to struggle and they end up losing the chiefs. If they want to have some success that defense needs to prove that they can play a little bit better moving on forward. If they win win the coastal Angela has nothing to lose. Why not now out there and get to shoot out win it he well he threw thirty eight touchdown passes this year. It's the most combined touchdown passes quarterbacks in playoff history. He's a beast, and he still has the neck beard and are ROY side by my neck. I think we're gonna win again tomorrow. So I do buy that. That's my prediction. All right.

"But now it was like extremely intense. And I took about three years of kind of like, maybe I'm non binary. No, I'm actually SIS. I'm really cyst for real. I'm says, maybe I'm non binary. No, I'm SIS for sure I'm cysts for sure I'm says, actually, I'm non binary. And Finally, I was like I'm a trans man. And I just like everything sort of fell in place. I know other people are like actually non binary. But for me, it was kinda this like this stage where I could be like, maybe I'm sort of trans. But I I had to come out and be like, no, I'm a trans man for other people coming on his non binary is them coming out as their target gender. For me. I it was a way for me to avoid the topic. So I was thirty five when I came out the reason I'm taking this long to reply back to is that I'm writing everything you say down, and I'm loving every wet of it. So I'm when you came out how did you relationship with your fatness change? If it did coming out did definitely change my relationship to my fatness. It did make it somewhat contentious and frightening again for about a week. The reason for that. Or maybe a little bit longer until I went and saw my doctor because. I'm really fortunate. But anyway, so before I came out, I did this piece on told the intersection of transmission in Fatima ziahe. And. It. Is about. How? Trans people who are fat often get their surgeries or their hormones denied them in. This is like a global problems happens. Like, I was interviewing people in Africa, Australia, the UK the US like the Netherlands. This is very very very common problem for transpeople is get their surgeries hormones denied because of their weight. And I make the argument that whatever health risks there are because if fatness they cannot be more of a health risk than the suicide rate that's associated with dysphoric transpeople. There's. Numbers out there. That's a forty percent of trans people attempt suicide. I I would like to check those numbers and give you maybe like a citation on those at some point. But I have one summer, but what it comes down to is the there's very high suicide rate for transpeople and dysphoric. A is a trigger for suicide thoughts for a lot of trans people. So I feel denying medical treatment for dysphoric based on weight is more dangerous than the wait could ever possibly be. But I was worried that I was going to get my hormones tonight. And I am fortunate in that I have the world's best doctor. He's just great. He's so fat accepting just like he just runs panels on the health. He's just a good guy. And like the offices set up to be super successful. And like everyone in the office is super nice NY. There's fat people who work there and just I just feel very very safe. My doctor's office. Unlike he totally assured me that things were going to be fine. And I felt a lot better. So I did have a fear for a while in there that I was going to have to. Do something to get the hormones I needed. But I wasn't sure what. And it it put me in a contentious place with my body for the first time in a while. And I had to work through that. With some reassurance. Really Really have it it for you. for you that you have a great doctor. I I mean, even just a regular health check point of view, I know that super super important, and I know that because mine's shit so questions fest. What is can you? Explain what ya and fat. Macy's is. Because it sounds kind of cute in a way, I've never heard of before which probably makes me a bad fat activist. And then you said, you might like if your doctor hadn't been good, you might you would have had to do something. Is that a thing to think that what is the alternative your doctor won't.

"Know? One. What makes us the gender that we are. While science doesn't know for Shaw, we do know that a lot of this is now Janes and the best evidence. We have tells us that this is not a choice, you are the gender. And sometimes it doesn't match you genitals to if a kid says they're transgender. What should you do? Well, let you explore who they are. If they want the hair or let it grow out, that's fine. And if they're about to puberty, so the adult about puberty blockers and three if you decide to change you body with homeowners and surgery will you regret it the best evidence? We have says that very few people regret getting surgery or taking homes. There is one big risk though. And that's t Phillipi particularly for canes who go straight from puberty blockers to home owns. Still though while they might be some risks with changing body with home owns scalpels 's something much scarier is looming over transgender, folks. And that's suicide a survey of molten thirty thousand transpeople found that forty percent had attempted suicide in their lifetime. That's way, high than the general population. It's nine times higher. He's cocoa. Maya the transgender population has the highest rate of suicide attempts of in the demographic in the United States. And what we're learning. Now is that being transgender in itself doesn't seem to be bad for your mental health? Tens out what is bad via mental health is the way trans people are often treated, they get bullied kicked out of their home and attacked and the science is telling us that this mistreatment. That's the biggest problem for transgender. People. It's not homeowners or surgery. Not surprisingly when people don't get treated like garbage and makes a big difference. I think the best thing about transition was having my family and friends support me all the way through it. And having my priest from the small town, Texas, write me a letter about how brave I was and say, I was always welcome in church. Yes. Hormones are important and awesome.

And you're about to how special post show extraordinary on the Mike series web producing in partnership with Cole Haan Cole Haan is the brand that champions extrordinary people who passionate about the Korea's. So recently, I met up with few of my extraordinary colleagues to talk about how passions let us to where we on now hosting podcasts in the studio. We have Eric Eddings co host the not what's up and host of startup. Lisa chow. Hello. I was especially curious about leases career pot. So I asked her a question that ended up being kind of revealing. Lisa. What would you tell you'll youngest south when you starting out your career? What are you tell my younger self? You know, it's funny because when I saw when I became a journalist I feel like I went in with my eyes wide open because I graduated and I was an applied. Math major and I had really investigated all different types of jobs to go into. I actually did forty informational interviews. Yeah. With different alumni from my college from accounting to investment banking consulting, the UN working at the State Department being a teacher just a whole range of careers. And then the journalists like connected most to. Yeah. I really liked the journalist I talked to. And then one guy was just, you know, hey, you know, I can call an editor that I worked with twenty years ago to see if you would be willing to offer you a job and he did that. And then I went up to New Hampshire. The job was at a small newspaper New Hampshire, and I never written an article basically for my college newspaper or anything like that. And I went up in interviewed with him. And he gave me the job. Yeah. What was the fest article you wrote full them? Oh, jeez. It was probably about some board meeting because I was covering six towns in New Hampshire and Maine, and the I think I probably went to a meeting and covered a traffic light. So you a debate on whether we should put a traffic light at this intersection. And it was a community that had very few traffic lights. So it was incredibly contentious. I mean, what are you thinking at that point? Yeah. No. It was crazy. I loved it. I don't know. It's just like the small gears in public discourse. It was fascinating to me. It was it was very strange. I mean, I was probably was the only Asian within a thirty mile radius. But yeah, I loved it. I loved it. It was crazy. I was just felt like I was in a foreign land. But I was just in Hampshire. So what would you tell your youngest self than I think, I would just say enjoys a ride. It's exciting. Fun. And you're gonna learn a ton. That's the thing as journalists. It's like you learn so much. It's like you have the luxury to ask any question. You want of anyone? That's crazy. It's amazing. Eric has happened to you. Somewhat at you like, wow, I get us this question. Yes. We had lavar Burton on the show, and he told us he was proud of us, and like that was probably one of best career moments of my life. And I don't know lavar Burton that will you know. I mean, I like to think we know each other now. Clearly. But to be in a situation where I get to talk to someone who I have lived up to into have that person. Not only appreciate that interaction.

"transpeople" Discussed on The Axe Files with David Axelrod

"And so things that diverged from that were treated as different or as. As diversity as opposed to and privileging the traditional position of straight white men in the military. And I think what we're seeing now with women, especially, you know a around what's been happening with attacking sexual assault in the military. What happened with gay rights? What's going to happen with transpeople is saying, hold on a second simply because this one kind of person was privileged, doesn't mean they're better, doesn't mean them. We're deserving of a place and doesn't mean they're the only ones who get to be themselves. So you get back to your story you, you're in New York, your paralegal, you're filling out law school applications, and you're doing stand up on the side. And is that what you wanted to do? Is that what you really wanted to do? You know, I feel like I've always been pulled into directions. I was pulled towards politics, I think, because I cared about it. I think it was because it was an outlet for the things I was angry and scared about before I could be honest with myself about who I was, and I've been always drawn to comedy in some way. I remember I one of my best friends Sam. He, he and I were talking and I told him, I said, you know, honestly, I think I'm funny enough to be a funny professional, but I don't believe that I'm funny enough to be professionally funny and I just, I don't know. And so I know that I'm going to write jokes for politicians and they're gonna. They're going to be good because I'm good at that. But at some point, I'm going to convince myself. That I should be in comedy. And just remind remind me that this is how I feel like that remind me that I can get convinced of something, but that deep down, I just don't believe it. And years later after I went into politics when I was thinking about doing comedy in l a full-time, he actually brought it up and he's like, you know, you told me remind you of this, but you should know that. I don't think it's true and there's a really good moment. But at this time, like I was pulled to these directions, I, I was afraid I think to fully commit to stand up because a it took vulnerability that I wasn't capable of. And I think it's incredibly brave to get on stage. There's nothing worse than a joke that bombs. Absolutely. And I definitely did my fair share volume, but it's actually deeper than that. It's the vulnerability of trying when it requires not just going on stage, but begging for stage time standing outside a comedy club in handing out flyers, trying to find someone who can put you on stage trying to your friends to go to the club because you have to get ten people there to get the time onstage with all those pieces of it and for a low for whatever reason. I didn't feel strongly enough about fighting for that, which made me think I shouldn't do it and that's, and but that's what I was doing when I was in York by day. I was like temp paralegal and filling out a specis related lawsuit claims and filling out law school applications, which ultimately realize that I should never have been doing and by night go and open mics. And you went new volunteers for John Kerry. Yes, we always interested in politics. I was. I liked. So when I was in high school, this incredible English teacher Lee Oestling her who was the forensics coach, and I would write speeches and delivered the speeches oratory was that category, but I actually ended up having more success in what was called Stemp extemporaneous speaking, which was they give you a question and you've got thirty minutes to come up with the argument and it. It's it's been my strength to this whole time sitting down writing for several days coming out with something I can do it. But the thing I am best at is is very quickly solving a problem very quickly coming up with an argument. I think that's why you know we can talk about it, but but at the White House, one of the things I love doing was when there would be those job reports that will come out at like eight thirty AM and the president had to go to the podium at nine thirty AM..

"I can never sort of a. Character with like, I don't like this person always have to find a way even if the characters done some reprehensible things to impetus with her and find a way in. So that's the work of being artist is to is to have empathy and love for the characters I play into, hopefully convey that to audiences. And so that's the work that I do as an artist. And so I think that hopefully we'll translate into the work. I do swear being an artist is what informs everything that I do, and there was a legacy of revolutionary artists, progressive artists who've through their work in their activism have preceded that way until I have a wonderful legacy to look to for inspiration. We've seen a similar journey of understanding happen around the issue of marriage equality. Understanding around trans issues. Probably a little bit pined marriage quality is, but that was maybe the fastest social change in America than anybody can remember. Part of it had to do with the change in calling marriage equality as opposed to gay marriage, how you talk about it, how you kind of find the way in people who are maybe instinctually not as understanding and come across these people as much as you know as much as some others. Now, do you think there are things that the trans community has done or still needs to do in order to make further progress? There's a lot that we have to do and there's fewer transpeople than that are gay and lesbian people the the way what you've alluded to change in the conversation from quote, unquote, gay marriage to marriage equality, having the conversation differently. It's key, and that's a lot of what I'm the word that I'm trying to do is to shape the conversation a different way. But I mean transpeople are under attack right now in in. In this country. There's we can. There's just the list of like really legislative things that are happening policy. Things that are happening around with thinning guidelines for trans kids, anti trans bathroom bills introduced in state, legislatures, all over the country. Transfixed.

"So many viewers. So many ESPN viewers obviously to me no issues with understood where they were coming from. But let's be honest. That selection that year really became a rallying cry for some people in terms of anti ESPN ISM well, for anyone who doesn't know mar man, they should know that she wouldn't take back Kaelin for one second act. She'd probably if you heard about the reaction, she'd probably make the segment longer presentation the award. She's totally fearless and she doesn't. She doesn't make decisions based on holding a finger up to the air. And I think that skipper who was president at the time wouldn't take it back either in part because I think there's still a belief there that when is issues of transgender, bright or left, this isn't that isn't a conservative. I mean, it happens to be capable. Jenner is a conservative, right? I mean, they, they never saw this as, hey, guess what? If we give Caitlyn Jenner this award, we're gonna get to be known as you know the liberal sports network, they they didn't attach any political orthodoxies to it. A lot of people did, but when you really deconstruct what that award was about, it really wasn't about it really wasn't about politics. You know, in terms of bright versus left, giving her that award doesn't mean okay. So now we're, you know, were were were pro life pro gun. We're going to stop the Republican platform. I mean, my gosh, Kaelin as I said, was his Republican. So I, I don't think they would regret it for Mellon ultimately that. That award that year was about was about someone who gave transpeople a really public person to rally around. So they weren't would probably that the people who wanted to create trouble for ESPN would be able to do such an effective job in creating a narrative using that and using the Michael Sam kiss at the draft or whatever as as evidence for this apparent. You know for their this theoretical bread, wing agenda, left wing agenda. That's interesting. I agree with you. And again, we've done that podcast. We'll probably do it again, but but the SP's again is always always an, I wouldn't say it's an interesting show 'cause I don't particularly love the show itself, but it's an interesting exercise for ESPN because it combines the best and worst of the SPN the worst being the star fucking the self-indulgence to sell promotion, the best being these incredible moments, like what we saw with Alli race, men and those hundred forty brave women, and you know Kelly speech, and that that's what's interesting. Let me ask you a question. So tomorrow morning, you wake up in the and somebody calls and said, we'd just fired Connor show. You've got his job whether you wanted or not. You take his job. Do you think that being in the sports business, where celebrities are you know oxygen for the business? I mean, star athletes, you know, get a lot of eyeballs right that you tracked a lot of attention. Do. You think that you would say, no, let's not be in the celebrity business. We don't want to. You know, we don't. We don't wanna like, you know, do any of that glitzy stuff at all. We just wanna do x. his nose with, you know, Jon Gruden in small dark room. I mean, like that's just part of doing that, but I would. I would. I would. I would. I would change the Espy's to be very blunt and I would eliminate a lot of the red carpet pageantry prior to it and I would. I would rethink it that said, I'm not getting Connor shelves job, and I understand that I may have a POV that is, you know, a. Different than what in ESPN management persons POV would be given that there is a commercial aspect to the SP's and there's a a a larger aspect in terms of the connection between celebrity and sports in ESPN, which is important to them. I'm a realist. I get it, but as someone just looking at it as as an observation, I'm telling you how I think it plays a lot of times. I. People in Bristol. There are people in Bristol who think that the SP's you know, there's a lot of money spent and you know it's a very anti Bristol thing. But I think that if you look at your laying off people as you're paying, you know, I mean, no offense, you're laying off people as your hosting a five hundred thousand dollar post Espy's party from it. You're assuming that it's a money losing proposition..
