Anyone else feel like it really is a tide that is turning these days? The American College of Nurse Midwives issued a statement in support of working towards quality, competent care for trans and gender non-conforming people.
~ Radical Doula Miriam Zoila Pérez, January 17, excited over a recent statement issued by ACNM that addresses the need for education about transgender issues in midwifery education. The statement explains:
HIV infection within the gender variant community is 4 times the rate of the general population; rates of drug, alcohol, and tobacco use, and depression and suicide attempts are also higher. These outcomes disproportionately affect gender variant people of color.
[G]ender variant individuals desire parenting roles and can and do create biological families .
Musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, breast, and pelvic care for individuals who have undergone hormonal and/or surgical therapy is typically straightforward but in some cases requires additional training.

See the movie “One flew over the coo-coos nest”
And I thought I was confused.
I am SO thankful I was brought up the strict and old-fashioned way.
None of this “anything goes” crap was accepted.
That’s pretty rare,isn’t it?
The testosterone injections must have a negative effect on the baby’s/fetus’ development.
