This is in my Economics textbook
This is fucked up
if you couldn’t SEE how fucked up this is, let me put this into even more perspective for you.
a male with no high school education still makes more than a female with 9th-12th grade education (no diploma).
a male who is a high school graduate still makes more than a female with an associate’s degree.
a male with a bachelor’s degree only makes about ~$2000 less than a female with a fucking doctorate’s degree.
tell me again why feminism isn’t important.
I am personally offended to the highest degree
"I think people who commit suicide after transition probably do it because they’ve been treated horribly by bigots because of it. I think they’d be just as unhappy and likely to commit suicide if they were living a lie, though, and felt uncomfortable in their bodies.
What needs to happen is greater awareness. We talk about gay and lesbian issues all the time, which is great, but I think we need to be talking about trans issues just as much.
I’m often shocked at how little people know, even those in my generation, which tends to be more accepting than generation X and baby boomers. It’s quite a simple concept, really - that somebody was just born into the wrong body, but people don’t understand that. I think trans people deserve a lot of compassion, and I, for one, think they are so brave. I think a lot of people would agree with me, if we could just educate them a bit.”
It’s not about men or women.
