The transgender community in America is facing a cultural and political war

The transgender community in the United States is facing a cultural war, but also a political one, from the imposition of laws that go against their rights and that put their health and that of their families at risk, forcing them to seek a better life. Forced to change their residence in search. 

Nadine Smith, executive director of Equality Florida, a non-profit organization that advocates for the civil rights and protections of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer residents of the state of Florida, expressed concern about laws that would limit transgender people. Let’s face it, specifically the case, which is the denial of medical care to transgender youth and children at risk to their lives, and where if care is provided, the doctor is considered a criminal.

In view of this, he called for the union of the society during a press conference organized by Ethnic Media Services, where he insisted that “that is the real problem, we are fighting against the definition of freedom, we are fighting against the definition of democracy”. We are fighting and we all have a role here, you don’t need to know a transgender person to understand them.”

For her part, Texas state representative Gene Woo asserted that “legislators are always looking to harass small groups that don’t have major representation and just as they hurt the transgender community today, they may be hurting another group tomorrow.” In society, so that, in this situation, the only viable thing is unity and respect.

“I think it’s important that people care about these issues and say, I’m not transgender and maybe I don’t have transgender friends, but they have a right to live their lives as they want, from their own doctors. consult, consult their own families, and they have the right to do what they think is necessary to live and be happy. Just like I have the right to do what I see right and take care of my body ,” They said.

Saylor Jones, Associate Director of Common Cause North Carolina, highlighted that laws that go against the transgender community are harming families and individuals, as well as being a suppression of their individuality, not to mention psychological damage.

“We know that most transgender and non-binary youth think that these debates around transgender issues are affecting their mental health in a negative way, we know that almost half of youth have experienced online bullying.”

Sailor Jones shows her concern for young people who face harassment and ridicule in their environment which leads young people to the easiest and most regrettable way out, which is suicide.

Finally, Susan Mash, founder of the Trans Youth Equality Foundation, recalled that families who support the transgender community face a variety of problems.

He said the fear of relatives is due to laws that are so strong that they are enforced, and because of hatred in schools and society. Today hundreds of people take their cars with essentials, sell their belongings and leave their homes in search of a better place.

Added to this, medical concern is most present among experts. Many boys and girls decide to start their own treatment for gender reassignment. However, it is a sensitive issue and requires a specialized process, so a family doctor must be on hand in order to be successful.

“Politicians haven’t done their homework and they haven’t helped, it’s outrageous because there’s talk about forcing children to take the hormones they’ve been giving them for a month without understanding that this how complex the hormone system is, the dangers, the depression, the hopelessness that children will feel, in addition to being able to develop suicidal thoughts and everything that parents and politicians will have to go through if they decide they can’t care , while doctors can be prosecuted by prosecutors if they give their support » added Susan Mash.

While politicians are making noises to call attention to laws that violate the rights of transgender people, American citizens are calling on them to address the larger issues that truly affect society and are truly necessary. However, while hearing the petitions, the transgender community has to face very difficult challenges.

It should be noted that, without the sympathy, support and attention of governments and society, young transgender people and their families face very difficult economic conditions and discrimination, which forces them to leave their home or some The most common method in cases is usually suicide.
