Asociación de Transexualidad Clínica apoya EpC

La Asociación de Transexualidad Clínica de España mostró hoy su apoyo a la asignatura de Educación para la Ciudadanía y los Derechos Humanos como mecanismo para acabar con el "acoso psicológico y moral" en las escuelas a los alumnos que pertenecen a minorías sexuales y que son "perseguidos y rechazados en numerosas ocasiones cotidianas" por su orientación e identidad sexual.

Dignity for All: Transgender Activist Fights for Safe Schools
Asian American transgender activist Pauline Park considers the push for gender-neutral pronouns in the U.S. "profoundly ahistorical. "
"Gender-neutral pronouns are not native to the English language," she argues. "And-unlike in Chinese, for example-[they] feel extremely artificial to speakers of English. And that is why I do not think artificial gender-neutral pronouns such as zie and hir will ever come into general use. Instead. I believe the way forward is to challenge the rigid use of pronouns based on sex assigned at birth."

Women on the Verge
WE tv stopped showing "Dharma & Greg" reruns the other night long enough to air "Cruel & Unusual," the groundbreaking and award-winning documentary that chronicles the lives of five transgender women incarcerated in men's prisons across the United States. A moving and frequently horrifying piece of work, the film not only raises awareness about the abuse, isolation and poor medical care faced by transgender prisoners, it puts a face on the problem. (All of the women have been on hormones for many years but are pre-operative. As one official put it, the prison into which a person is placed is based on genitals, not gender identity.)
