No âmbito da Plataforma Anti-Transfobia e Homofobia, Saúde em Português irá organizar uma Tertúlia-Debate “Despatologização da transexualidade", no próximo dia 30 de Janeiro de 2012, pelas 19h00m, na Livraria Almedina- Estádio.

Esta tertúlia tem os seguintes objectivos:
- Sensibilizar a comunidade em geral para a questão da despatologização da transexualidade;
- Sensibilizar para o direito à expressão plena das identidades individuais, sem receio de qualquer tipo de censura ou repressão social;
- Promover a partilha de conhecimentos e debate sobre sexualidades, identidades e liberdades individuais.

Estarão presentes:
- Bruno Maia, Médico
- Nuno Miguel Ropio, Jornalista-
Ema Sofia Alves, Enfermeira-
Hernâni Caniço,Médico e Presidente da Saúde em Português

Sei que a Ema é trans, mas um debate sobre a despatologização com dois médicos e uma enfermeira, quando já se provou que os médicos andam a apanhar bonés nestes assuntos, e mesmo que sejam apoiantes, parece-me descabido e incongruente.

Transgender or transsexual?
I was flicking through the TV channels when I caught sight of this pretty little eight-year-old American girl. Her hair was long. She had bangs and she was saying, “I will be the person I want to be.” She looked really charming but for one problem — she really was a little boy. And what she was essentially saying was, if I feel like a girl and I look like a girl then I will fully become one inside and out. Outside, she can become a little girl by having surgery cut off what defines her as a boy, and inside, well, she is naturally a little girl already so there is little inside work required

Tennessee Redneck Promises to “Stomp a Mudhole” Into Transgender Women Using Public Restrooms
Tennessee, for a second we were worried that you were losing steam in the America’s Stupidest State contest, what with the legislator in Oklahoma introducing a bill to ban the use of aborted fetuses in food the other day. We were worried how you would respond to this upping of the stupid ante, but you have delivered. We knew you would. Of course, yesterday, Tennessee wingnut senator Stacey Campfield asserted that AIDS came from this one time when a gay pilot had sexytime with a monkey in Africa, and that you can’t get AIDS from heterosexual sex, and all kinds of other bat crazy nonsense.

In Maryland, lies will not stop passage of laws to protect transgender people
All of us who have worked long and hard for equality under the law for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people know how strangely eager some people are to twist and distort the truth about us and our lives. Their ultimate goal? To dissuade public officials from passing laws to end discrimination. I won’t even dignify the ugliest things they like say by repeating them, but you know what I am talking about. Our opponents also make sweeping claims about what terrible things will happen if laws are changed to protect us from the bias and discrimination of others. Often their assertions are rhetorical, but sometimes they are so direct they can be squarely disproved.
