Statement by President-elect Joe Biden on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

2020.11.25 16:39 progress18 Statement by President-elect Joe Biden on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

November 25, 2020
Violence against women and girls is a global epidemic, affecting millions. As many as 1 in 3 women is the victim of gender-based violence at some point in her life, and that rate is even higher for women of color, lesbian and bisexual women, transgender individuals, and other members of vulnerable or underserved communities. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has made matters worse, creating a “shadow pandemic” for many women and girls who are largely confined to their home with their abuser and facing economic insecurity that makes escape more difficult.
Today, on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, I reaffirm my commitment to restore U.S. leadership in confronting this global scourge — and that starts right here at home. Writing and passing the Violence Against Women Act as a United States Senator remains one of my proudest legislative achievements. As vice president, I worked to end the culture of sexual assault and silence in this country by strengthening Title IX protections for students and creating the "It's On Us" program to help empower people to intervene to prevent sexual assault. As president, the vice president and I will work with the Congress to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act. We will also address the growing rates of domestic violence and sexual assault during the COVID-19 crisis and restore Title IX protections for student survivors of sexual assault, stalking, and dating violence.
Our administration will renew the power of our example overseas and rejoin global efforts to confront gender-based violence in all its forms. We will ensure that women and girls fleeing gender-based violence in other parts of the world can seek asylum here and that visas are available to protect survivors who are not U.S. citizens. And as commander-in-chief, I will make it a priority at the highest levels to end the scourge of sexual violence and harassment against women service members.

2020.11.15 05:31 anakinmcfly Press Release: A Joint Report on Transgender Issues for SG's 2021 Universal Periodic Review

I'm one of the co-founders of TransgenderSG, and we submitted our stakeholder report to the UN last month. The full report will be released before the official UPR session next May, but in the meantime this is the press release we put out, which is hopefully useful to those of you who want to know more about issues facing the trans community in Singapore:

TransgenderSG and Sayoni have collaborated with the Asia Pacific Transgender Network (APTN) to submit a joint stakeholder report to the United Nations, in preparation for Singapore’s third Universal Periodic Review (UPR) in 2021.
The UPR consists of an interactive dialogue between the Human Rights Council and member states about steps taken to advance human rights in their respective societies. Civil society organisations are welcome to submit their own information on relevant human rights issues; this information can be referenced by any of the states taking part in the review.
In previous UPR cycles, Singapore received recommendations to decriminalise sex between men, eliminate media censorship of positive or neutral LGBTI content, and protect LGBTI Singaporeans from discrimination. These recommendations were all noted by the Singaporean government with no steps taken towards implementation.
This joint submission by TransgenderSG, Sayoni and APTN is the first civil society report from Singapore to focus exclusively on transgender issues. The report references data from the first nationwide survey of Singapore’s transgender community, conducted by TransgenderSG, and a research study conducted by Sayoni, and addresses the following key areas of concern:
  1. The difficult process of legal gender recognition (LGR), including the prohibitive cost of required genital surgeries that can go up to SGD$150k for transgender men; such surgeries being unavailable in Singapore; requiring an invasive genital examination for surgical confirmation; the significant medical risks of surgery; the lack of MediSave or insurance coverage; and the violation of bodily autonomy in pressuring transgender Singaporeans to undergo major surgeries they may not want, need or be able to afford at the time. Transgender persons with incongruent legal gender documentation face heightened vulnerability to harassment, discrimination and violence. Lack of LGR is associated with negative mental health outcomes. Only 9.7% of surveyed transgender Singaporeans had managed to change their legal sex, including 53.8% of those who had transitioned more than 10 years ago.
  2. Discrimination, abuse, and restrictions facing transgender students. 77.6% of openly transgender students in TransgenderSG’s survey reported negative experiences in school ranging from bullying to sexual abuse. Less than a third agreed or strongly agreed that they felt safe at school, and only 24% said they had a staff member they could go to for support. School administrators have implemented unreasonable demands that pressure even high-performing transgender students to drop out of school, or sought to prevent them from transitioning or pursuing HRT, sometimes by contacting their healthcare providers without the student’s or their parents’ knowledge or consent.
  3. Discrimination against transgender persons in the employment sector. A joint research study by APTN and Curtin University found that transgender job candidates in Singapore faced the worst discrimination compared to Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam. TransgenderSG’s survey revealed an unemployment rate of 23.5% among transgender people not presently studying, including 14.3% of university graduates. The overall unemployment rate in Singapore was 2.9% over the same period. This affects transgender persons’ abilities not just to provide for themselves but to financially support their parents and other family. It is also a mismanagement of resources for a segment of highly educated Singaporeans to be persistently unemployed or underemployed.
  4. Discrimination and harassment in healthcare settings that discourage transgender persons from seeking necessary general healthcare, particularly in areas of sexual and reproductive health; and limited access to transgender healthcare, including restrictions for those under 21 that have driven transgender youths to dangerous and unregulated avenues to obtain the hormones and surgeries necessary for their well-being.
  5. Access to marriage, decent housing and shelter. Transgender Singaporeans who have transitioned but are unable to change their legal sex end up in a legal limbo where they are unable to marry anyone of any sex. This and restrictions against same-sex marriage lock the majority of trans people out of public HDB housing before the age of 35, and force many in abusive home environments to either tolerate domestic violence or become homeless due to a lack of alternative housing options. To date, only one homeless shelter openly accepts transgender residents.
  6. Violence against transgender or gender non-conforming adults, youths and children including physical, emotional and sexual violence from family members, the public or officials; immunity for actors promoting and practising “conversion therapies” known to lead to lasting psychological harm; and barriers to reporting and gaps in service provision for victims of such violence to seek relief or redress.
The submission also proposes key legislative, policy, and programmatic actions to ensure that the human rights, safety and dignity of transgender people in Singapore are upheld by both state and non-state actors.
“This joint report on transgender rights is the most important document ever produced to understand the impact of violence and discrimination against transgender persons in Singapore,“ said Jean Chong of Sayoni. “While state and non state actors have sometimes paid lip service to the inclusion of trans persons, it is nonetheless difficult to square this with the systemic failure in their policies which leads to the lack of protection for transgender persons. Singapore is a member of the United Nations, and in the Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, it states simply and clearly that, “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.” Trans rights are human rights. Nothing more and nothing less.”
“For a long time, the challenges and struggles facing the transgender community in Singapore have long gone unheard,” said a spokesperson for TransgenderSG. “With this report, we want to shed some light on these issues and how even small policy actions can go a long way in enabling trans people here to live safe, fulfilling lives that will benefit not just them but the rest of Singapore.”
Through this joint submission, the coalition hopes to bring greater attention to the multifaceted discriminations experienced by transgender residents of Singapore, and urges the government to take concrete measures to respect, protect and fulfill its human rights obligations towards trans persons.

2020.11.10 02:45 Squantz [Cyberpunk] d100 NPC appearances

This can also just be "sci-fi" as it's not married to the TTRPG or the upcoming video game. Be as detailed as you want!
  1. Muscular man with a shaved head. He wears a jean jacket with no sleeves so that he can show off his cyborg right arm.
  2. A bartender with 2 additional robot arms. With 4 arms he's able to serve up drinks twice as fast and always reels in the tips from his great service.
  3. An autonomous android. While he is clearly not human, he does appear to have a surprisingly humanoid shape. Bipedal, two arms, human-like head attached to a torso--even clothing! But there was never an effort to convince others that he's actually human. His skin is a grey liquid-plastic that hides most of his inner-workings. Though, if you look hard enough you can still see some lights, wiring, and metal underneath the surface.
  4. Woman in a CarapACETM semi-permanent body glove that works to interface the human body with the technology around it (be that vehicles, computers, weaponry, etc). She wears a camel brown trench coat over the black body glove and also wears red fingerless gloves.
  5. Scrawny man with a blue mohawk that wears military fatigues and a modified CASIO calculator watch that can handle basic phone calls and text messages.
  6. Unshaven man wearing a millionaire suit, but disheveled and filthy. Cleary suffers from delusions, often thinks strangers are people from his past. Anyone that threatens him or doesn’t try and play along has a red dot appear on their forehead - snipers follow along, protecting the delusional man. He is the brother of a cyber-lord and suffering badly from over-augment syndrome u/spwack
  7. A man addicted to gene mods. Horns, wings, extra limbs, all in unusual sizes and colors. He gives a strong warning about the price, and not just monetary, of delving too deep into body alteration. “Just stick with robotics.” He warns. u/Dragon_Overlord
  8. A robot with a human right hand. If you look too long at it or ask him about it. He will call you out on the double-standard. u/likeicareaboutkarma
  9. A Women with a sharp white power suit. If you ask her if it is hard to be a women at the top of the ladder. She will say it is even harder to be a full humanoid at that level. u/likeicareaboutkarma
  10. An android bounty hunter (cowboy gear) who's left hand is a large directional magnet. u/likeicareaboutkarma
  11. A punk dude who instead of a mohawk has a led-stripe infused on his head. u/likeicareaboutkarma
  12. A former marine sits at a small round table at a juice bar, with a glass of green juice in front of him. He’s in his mid twenties, really jacked in terms of muscles and still wears his old fatigues and boots. He’s got a crew cut and a cybernetic implant in front of his right eye, that is an augmented reality sniper scope. He’s petting an adorable little kitten with cybernetic implants, which he calls Sergeant Tomlinson, and insists that the kitten’s implants contain the consciousness of his fallen brother in arms and lover. Things are a bit awkward between them since the guy isn’t into beastiality. u/MyEvilTwin47
  13. The soldier’s kitten, sits on the table. It can hack into any system with its implants, has human intelligence and sometimes surprises incredulous people by speaking English, especially after behaving in ways typical to a kitten. u/MyEvilTwin47
  14. A woman with an afro haircut and mirrored sunglasses. There are horn-like antenna under her hair and a screen on the inside of the glasses. u/DarthSyphilis
  15. She looks like she escaped from a gothic funeral with layers of black lace. Her porcelain-like artificial limbs are obviously so, to imitate a doll. u/CountofAccount
  16. Police academy reject who open carries and wears as much tactical gear as he can get away with and has all the police-support stickers on his hover truck. u/CountofAccount
  17. Minor internet celebrity who livestreams her daily life, surrounding by little hover robot cameras. Wears promotional brands and often dead stops while walking for selfies. u/CountofAccount
  18. Classic car guy who has a garage of functional 1960s cars and a few sleepers with shells hiding over-juiced motors. u/CountofAccount
  19. Man with a full beard, hat, dress shirt, and dark trousers with suspenders. Has a bicycle. He is part of a relic religion that disavows modern technology. u/CountofAccount
  20. A homeless man who can't afford replacement teeth who keeps a defunct theme park's ragged android mascots as pets of sorts u/CountofAccount
  21. Neon light repair-woman with a huge bundle of glowing tubes strapped to her back. She has a pet spider monkey, upgraded for intelligence with implanted microchips who helps her with wiring. u/CountofAccount
  22. Oversized pair of soft-skinned obese grandparents nested in floating rings. Tethered to their rings by cords are their grandchildren, also overweight, also floating in smaller rings. u/CountofAccount
  23. A gaggle of kids with brightly colored hair and glowing temporary tattoos. Each has a wire-ride: a wheel-less grav-skateboard that glides along wiring and pipes. They are ducking the cops for riding power cables. u/CountofAccount
  24. Shy rich child in bespoke handmade designer clothing accompanied by two oversized mastiff-like android dogs. The talking dogs are designed to defend their owner's life against all threats and sport high-grade laser weapons. u/CountofAccount
  25. A buxom lady with a slinky succubus aesthetic who is surrounded by android replicas of extinct species like tigers, gorillas, wolves, and leopards. u/CountofAccount
  26. A skinny someone with a huge helmet over their head who is stumbling over every crack in the sidewalk because they are fully engaged in their VR world. u/CountofAccount
  27. A man in a t-shirt, ripped jeans, and a bandana on a mushroom bender, as recommended by this year's fad lifestyle management app. u/CountofAccount
  28. This guy is fully cybered up — full cybernetic arms, Robot-like cybereyes that look like eerie terminator discs, and strange bulges just underneath his skin. He’s got a wicked, detached smile and appears to stare you down unflinchingly. A thick trenchcoat obscures your ability to check for any holsters at his sides... u/Joshru
  29. A tall, heavy set, woman wearing combat trousers, boots and a vest with many pockets cracks her knuckles as she stands from the table. You see the tell tale scaring of backstreet aug-work around the pointed steel studs protruding from each knuckle. u/WeirdTemperature7
  30. A diva with reptilian implants gracing her arms, giving them a shiny scaled texture. Her hair is tied into a labyrinthine series of braids, eyes gleaming gold with slits. She wears elbow length velvet gloves, and a dress that you swear subtly changes fabric and pattern a million times. Simply looking at her is like looking at a snake hunting for prey and at once being noticeable and part of the background. u/VVitchDoggo
  31. Small old woman with curly white hair and a kindly smile, a colorful knit shawl over her comfortable black clothing. Wears a pair of goggles in lieu of spectacles that whirr and gleam with multiple lenses, settings, and focuses that zoom in and out like a camera might. A close look reveals small wires from the goggles that disappear under her hairline. u/YOUFACEDUROXAS
  32. A lanky man in a slim business suit with the logo of a Tech-dev company. Platinum blonde hair slicked back with gel. He avoids eye contact, moves quickly, and clutches his suitcase close. u/YOUFACEDUROXAS
  33. A punk-dressed woman with what appears to be a nest of straightened wires in place of an eye - the ends of the wires give off an eerie orange glow, and you realize they each individually function as a sensor, giving her vision beyond anything you could hope for. u/Mishmoo
  34. An oddly short man with a mechanical leg gimps toward you. He’s holding a book in one hand and a cigarette in the other. u/Fyeris_GS
  35. A blind woman sits at a table, listening to the music filling the air. You see as she lets out a sigh; it’s as though her troubles are melting, and you see her shoulders slump back as she fills her chair more fully. u/Fyeris_GS
  36. A man in a police uniform. Sufficient knowledge of local law enforcement reveals that the collar tab numbers don't match the shoulder patches, and the badge is a fake; this is a punk in a stolen uniform using it as an aid to crime. u/Vote_for_Knife_Party
  37. A man in full punk regalia... but everything is freshly laundered, the boots clearly aren't broken in, and his "chromed out" pistol is a police-issue handgun with a spray enamel finish. u/Vote_for_Knife_Party
  38. An exact dead ringer for Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's. His name is Barry, who is thrilled with his new body and will happily share the contact info for the surgeon who did the work. u/Vote_for_Knife_Party
  39. A misshapen man hiding in the shadows. As you get close your see his augments/cybernetic part are recycled and don't match his physique. (e.g. his calf implant is too long, his shoulder is too small, etc) u/hamlet_d
  40. A bearded face pokes above the crowd, made entirely of bronze. As he approaches, you see that his entire massive body is modified to be clad in bronze like a living statue and he is wearing a tunic, cloak, and sandals. He is a retired executive of a cybernetics company obsessed with antiquity and Archaeology, who has just stopped back here to check on the company and to prepare for his next excavation on ancient ruins he worries will be destroyed by an ongoing civil war. u/NemoNusquamus
  41. Nervous businessman in a suit wrinkled from sleeping in the booth of a cafe, hugging his briefcase tightly. His hair is uncombed, and there's a fresh scratch on the left lens of his glasses. u/worrymon
  42. At first, it seems as if there is a market stall without anyone selling its wares. However, venture closer, and you will find that a few squirrels, with cybernetic implants, are manning the stall, selling surprisingly fresh produce. It isn’t known if these squirrels own the stall or if its owner is remotely giving them directions. Regardless, those squirrels sure do sell some good produce. u/FunkyTheTrashCan
  43. Someone with a missing left arm is walking down the street. The stub that is left is warped and scarred, telling the tale of a cybernetic arm gone rogue. The scar tissue is old, so it seems that they have become adverse to any more cybernetic implants. u/FunkyTheTrashCan
  44. A gaggle of preachers gather in the street in front of their church. They warn of the end times coming on a specific date. If that date comes and passes, then they just choose another later date which their head priest sets out. A few punks gather around to entertain themselves with their unbelievable claims. u/FunkyTheTrashCan
  45. An old, rusty snack machine hides itself in a corner. It’s wares of old brands look like they were produced only yesterday. When an old-age quarter is put in, the machine dispenses what you are craving the most and, in some cases, strikes up a conversation. u/FunkyTheTrashCan
  46. a power couple wearing outfits made entirely from holster, sheaths and pouches; none of them are filled, yet they're both carrying a matched set of old-school Thompson machine guns. They're drunk and arguing. u/LordsOfJoop
  47. guy wearing camouflage jumpsuit and a pilot helmet, with a tranquilizer dart stuck in his neck. Every ten minutes, he hammers in a replacement for it. u/LordsOfJoop
  48. a young woman wearing a bandage over one eye and sporting fresh bruises on her face. At her feet is a cryocase with a severed head still blinking and working its jaw as if trying to speak. The bloodied machete sitting on the chair next to her, she's claiming isn't hers. u/LordsOfJoop
  49. five guys in business suits with NASCAR-style logos on them, discussing trade law with what appears to be an owl made from chromed bones and silver feathers. u/LordsOfJoop
  50. spider monkey sitting on a severed tree branch, sipping a Mai Tai, smoking a cigarette despite the ban. Will begin shouting in Turkish if interrupted. u/LordsOfJoop
  51. man ordering drinks at the bar, completely covered in holographic insects and vermin, apparently uncooperative about tipping suggestions. u/LordsOfJoop
  52. man and woman push-starting homemade powered armor in front of a deli selling hybridized eel kebabs and rabbit meat corn dogs at remarkably great prices. u/LordsOfJoop

2020.11.07 03:40 aprilarcus My family wants to pretend me out of existence

So hi. I've been stuck in this situation for a long time, and I was hoping some folks could give me some perspective on it. I (35F, transgender) live in San Francisco where I work as a software engineer. My mother (61) lives in Portland, where I grew up; my father (63) lives on the east coast with his wife (50) and their two children, my half siblings: 13M and 11F.
My parents separated when I was 14, and as I child I split my time evenly between them. My father started dating his wife when I was 18. My father did not do a good job of introducing me to her. He asked me to not live with them after I came home from college for the summer, and his attempts to introduce us involved competitive games and athletics. On one memorable occasion, she refused to share a dinner table with me while she was pregnant after I mentioned a sore throat, and took her meal outdoors.
From the very beginning my father has used language that makes it clear that he intends for me to have no role in his family life. Before my brother was born, he speculated that I would be like "an uncle" to him, because of our large age difference, and he initially referred to his wife and children as "my new family". They left Portland for the east coast a few months before my brother was born. I was disappointed not to get to have a chance to be involved in his infancy; I'd imagined that I could help with babysitting from time to time and whatnot.
Over the next eight years, from 2007 to 2015, I saw my siblings about twice a year: once at the thanksgiving family reunion hosted by my grandparents, and once in the spring when my wife and I would visit her parents, who fortunately lived within a reasonable driving distance of mine and gave us an excuse to combine trips.
Around 2015, my wife and I divorced, and in 2017 my grandmother passed away. My father stated that going forward, he would take the family to their mother's father's thanksgiving dinner. My father has always been a queer ally, with many gay friends in my childhood and who was one of my earliest allies when I transitioned. However, he cautioned me that his father-in-law is a martially minded southern man's man, and that if I chose to attend dinner with them as an extended family member, it would be at my own peril.
The last time I saw my family was in the summer of 2018, at my grandmother's memorial service. The five of us were getting along cordially, and I asked my stepmother if I could join them for Christmas, but at that moment she seemed to freeze, and mumbled something noncommittal. In November I was told not to book travel, as her brother-in-law was ill with cancer.
The next year (2019, last year) my father came to visit me in San Francisco. It was the first time he'd ever traveled to see me, and he said that going forward, he would prefer to conduct our relationship on "my turf". I asked again if I could visit for Christmas that year. By then it had been a year and a half since I'd seen my siblings. This lead to a horrible fight, which left me in tears.
I have done my best to maintain a relationship with generous, carefully chosen gifts for the children on birthdays, for the whole family on Christmas and at other random times when something occurs to me. It feels like shouting in the emptiness, and I've never received a thank you note or phone call.
I thought for a while that it might be a secret transphobia thing, and so I reached out to my stepmother's nephew, a trans man, for advice about it. He said that his aunt had always been perfectly kind and accepting to him, albeit difficult to read, so I don't think the most obvious thing is the source of whatever bad feeling is keeping me frozen out; and when I look back over the history of my father's relationship with my stepmother, it seems like I've only ever been grudgingly welcome no matter how I looked. It seems as though since my grandmother's death, she's decided that she no longer has any reason to present me with any veneer of friendliness. My father says that she is "happy" with our relationship, and not interested in "breaking new ground".
Meanwhile, my siblings are now entering their teens, and I haven't seen them in two years. It seems that I may not see them again until their adulthood, except by barging in to their lives as an unwelcome guest. I feel frustrated, demoralized, and bitter.

2020.11.02 10:14 Candy-Reasonable /r/neoliberal election the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, 2021 [ Read the entire post before voting! ]

The /neoliberal election : Speaker of the House of Representatives
Nancy Patricia Pelosi (née D'Alesandro) : (She) is an American politician serving as Speaker of the United States House of Representatives since 2019, and previously from 2007 to 2011. Pelosi has served as a U.S. Representative from California since 1987. A member of the Democratic Party, she is the only woman in U.S. history to serve as Speaker and the highest-ranking female elected official in United States history.
Pelosi was first elected to Congress in 1987, following her father, Thomas D'Alesandro Jr., who served as a U.S. representative from Maryland and Mayor of Baltimore, into politics. She is the dean of California's congressional delegation, having begun her 17th term in 2019. Pelosi represents California's 12th congressional district, which comprises four-fifths of the city and county of San Francisco. She initially represented the 5th district (1987–93), and then, when district boundaries were redrawn after the 1990 Census, the 8th district (1993–2013). Pelosi has led the House Democrats since 2003—the first woman to lead a party in Congress—serving twice each as House minority leader (2003–07 and 2011–19) and as Speaker (2007–11 and since 2019).
Pelosi was a major opponent of the Iraq War as well as the Bush administration's 2005 attempt to partially privatize Social Security. During her first speakership, she was instrumental in the passage of many of the Obama administration's landmark bills, including the Affordable Care Act, the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the Don't Ask, Don't Tell Repeal Act, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and the 2010 Tax Relief Act.
Pelosi lost the speakership in 2011 after the Republican Party won a majority in the House of Representatives in the 2010 elections. But she retained her role as leader of the House Democratic Caucus and returned to the role of House minority leader. In the 2018 midterm elections, the Democrats regained control of the House. When the 116th Congress convened on January 3, 2019, Pelosi was again elected speaker, becoming the first former speaker to return to the post since Sam Rayburn in 1955. Under Pelosi's leadership, the House of Representatives impeached President Donald Trump on December 18, 2019.
Her Political Positions : 1. Pelosi was a founding member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, but left in 2003 after being elected House minority leader.
  1. The American Civil Liberties Union's Congressional Scorecard has given Pelosi a lifetime rating of 92% for her voting record on civil liberties. In 2001, she voted in favor of the USA Patriot Act, but voted against reauthorization of certain provisions in 2005. She voted against a Constitutional amendment banning flag-burning.
  2. Pelosi voted against the Secure Fence Act of 2006.
  3. In June 2018, Pelosi visited a federal facility used to detain migrant children separated from their parents and subsequently called for the resignation of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. In July, Pelosi characterized the compromise immigration bill by the Republicans as a "deal with the devil" and noted she had not had conversations with House Speaker Ryan about a legislative solution to the separation of families at the southern border.
  4. Pelosi has long supported LGBT rights. In 1996, she voted against the Defense of Marriage Act, and in 2004 and 2006, she voted against the proposed Federal Marriage Amendment, which would amend the United States Constitution to define marriage federally as being between one man and one woman, thereby overriding states' individual rights to legalize same-sex marriage. When the Supreme Court of California overturned the state's ban on marriage between same-sex couples in 2008, Pelosi released a statement welcoming the "historic decision". She also indirectly voiced her opposition to California Proposition 8, a successful 2008 state ballot initiative which defined marriage in California as a union between one man and one woman.
  5. The LGBT advocacy group Human Rights Campaign gave Pelosi a 100% rating in 2006 for her voting record in the 107th through 109th congresses (2001–2006), indicating that she voted favorably on legislation supported by the organization on every occasion. In 2012, Pelosi said her position on LGBT rights such as same-sex marriage grows from and reflects her Catholic faith; it also places her at odds with Catholic doctrine, which defines marriage as a union between one man and one woman. She said "My religion compels me—and I love it for it—to be against discrimination of any kind in our country, and I consider [the ban on gay marriage] a form of discrimination. I think it's unconstitutional on top of that."
  6. Pelosi supports the Equality Act, a bill that would expand the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. In 2019, she spoke in Congress in favor of the bill and called for ending discrimination against LGBT people. Pelosi also opposes Trump's transgender military ban.
  7. Pelosi supports reform in marijuana laws, although NORML's deputy director Paul Armentano said she and other members of Congress had not done anything to change the laws. She also supports use of medical marijuana.
  8. Pelosi supports the Bush/Obama NSA surveillance program PRISM.
  9. As speaker of the House, Pelosi quietly moved the statue of Robert E. Lee from the National Statuary Hall of the U.S. Capitol to the Capitol crypt. In Lee's place, she had a statue of Rosa Parks erected. In August 2017, Pelosi said she supported the removal of Confederate monuments and memorials from the Capitol Building.
  10. In 2002, while Pelosi was the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, she was briefed on the ongoing use of "enhanced interrogation techniques", including waterboarding, authorized for a captured terrorist, Abu Zubaydah.
In an April 2009 press conference, Pelosi said, "In that or any other briefing ... we were not, and I repeat, were not told that waterboarding or any of these other enhanced interrogation techniques were used. What they did tell us is that they had some legislative counsel—the Office of Legislative Counsel opinions that they could be used, but not that they would. And they further [...] the point was that if and when they would be used, they would brief Congress at that time."
  1. Pelosi voted against the 1995 Balanced Budget Proposed Constitutional Amendment. (It eventually failed in the Senate.)
  2. As speaker of the house, she also spearheaded the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2007 as part of the 100-Hour Plan. The Act raises the minimum wage in the United States and the territories of the Northern Marianas Islands and American Samoa. American Samoa was initially absent from the act, but as part of HR 2206 it was included.
  3. Pelosi opposed the welfare reform proposed by President Bush as well as reforms proposed and passed under President Clinton. She also opposed the tax reform signed by President Trump in December 2017, describing it as "probably one of the worst bills in the history of the United States of America ... It robs from the future [and] it rewards the rich ... and corporations at the expense of tens of millions of working middle-class families in our country."
  4. In 1999, Pelosi voted against displaying the Ten Commandments in public buildings, including schools. Pelosi voted for the No Child Left Behind Act, which instituted testing to track students' progress and authorized an increase in overall education spending.
  5. In 2019, Pelosi said climate change was "the existential threat of our time", and called for action to curb climate change.
Pelosi has supported the development of new technologies to reduce U.S. dependence upon foreign oil and remediate the adverse environmental effects of burning fossil fuels. Pelosi has widely supported conservation programs and energy research appropriations. She has also voted to remove an amendment that would allow for oil and gas exploration in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
Pelosi has blocked efforts to revive offshore oil drilling in protected areas, reasoning that offshore drilling could lead to an increase in dependence on fossil fuels.
  1. Pelosi was instrumental in passing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. She was a key figure in convincing President Barack Obama to continue pushing for health-care reform after the election of Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown in a January special election—a defeat seen as potentially fatal to Democratic reform efforts.
  2. She does not endorse Senator Bernie Sanders' bill for single-payer healthcare.
  3. Pelosi voted against the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003 and earlier attempts at similar bans, and voted against the criminalization of certain situations where a minor is transported across state lines for an abortion (HR 748, passed).
She has voted in favor of lifting the ban on privately funded abortions at overseas U.S. military facilities (HA 209, rejected); in favor of an amendment that would repeal a provision forbidding servicewomen and dependents from getting an abortion in overseas military hospitals (HA 722, rejected); and in favor of stripping the prohibition of funding for organizations working overseas that use their own funds to provide abortion services, or engage in advocacy related to abortion services (HA 997, rejected). She also voted in favor of the 1998 Abortion Funding Amendment, which would have allowed the use of district funds to promote abortion-related activities, but would have prohibited the use of federal funds.
  1. She supports contraception and family planning.
  2. Pelosi stands in favor of increased background checks for potential gun owners, as well as the banning of assault weapons.
In 2012, she was given a 0% rating by Gun Owners of America and a 7% rating from the National Rifle Association for her stances on gun control.
  1. With regard to Representative Charles Rangel's (D-NY) plan to introduce legislation that would reinstate the draft, Pelosi said she did not support it.
  2. In January 2019 she supported President Trump in his decision to back the leader of the opposition Juan Guaidó during Venezuelan protests and constitutional crisis.
  3. Pelosi initially resisted efforts by some fellow House Democrats to pursue Trump's impeachment, but in September 2019, following revelations of the Trump–Ukraine scandal, announced the beginning of a formal House impeachment inquiry, saying, "The actions taken to date by the president have seriously violated the Constitution" and that Trump "must be held accountable—no one is above the law."
  4. The House impeachment inquiry focused on efforts by Trump and Trump administration officials to pressure the government of Ukraine to smear former Vice President Joe Biden, a political rival of Trump's, while withholding $400 million in U.S. military aid, and a White House visit, from Ukraine; the inquiry also examined Trump's request in a July 2019 phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to "do us a favor" and investigate Biden. On December 18, 2019, the House voted nearly along party lines to impeach Trump for abuse of power (230–197) and obstruction of Congress (229–198), making him the third president in U.S. history to be impeached.
On Foreign Policy : 1. In 2008, after a meeting with the Dalai Lama and officials in the Tibetan government-in-exile, Pelosi criticized the People's Republic of China for its handling of the unrest in Tibet; addressing a crowd of thousands of Tibetans in Dharamsala, India, Pelosi called on "freedom-loving people" worldwide to denounce China for its human rights abuses in Tibet.
  1. The same year, Pelosi commended the European Parliament for its "bold decision" to award the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought to Chinese dissident and human rights activist Hu Jia, and called upon the Chinese government "to immediately and unconditionally release Hu Jia from prison and to respect the fundamental freedoms of all the people in China."
  2. Pelosi criticized the imprisonment of Hong Kong democracy activists in August 2017 for their roles in a protest at the Civic Square in front of the Central Government Complex in Hong Kong. She called the ruling an injustice that should "shock the conscience of the world".
  3. In September 2019, Pelosi met with Hong Kong pro-democracy activist Joshua Wong on Capitol Hill; Chinese media responded by accusing Pelosi of "backing and encouraging radical activists".
  4. Pelosi publicly scolded Colombian president Álvaro Uribe during Uribe's May 2007 state visit to America. Pelosi met with Uribe and later released a statement that she and other members of Congress had "expressed growing concerns about the serious allegations" of links between paramilitary groups and Colombian government officials. Pelosi also came out against the Colombian free-trade agreement.
  5. In 2008, Pelosi said: "For years, I have opposed the embargo on Cuba. I don't think it's been successful, and I think we have to remove the travel bans and have more exchanges—people to people exchanges with Cuba."
  6. Pelosi opposed U.S. intervention in the 1991 Gulf War.
  7. Pelosi has generally supported normalization of relations with Iran.
  8. In 2002, Pelosi opposed the Iraq Resolution authorizing President George W. Bush to use military force against Iraq, which passed the House on a 296–133 vote.
  9. Pelosi reaffirms that "America and Israel share an unbreakable bond: in peace and war; and in prosperity and in hardship". Pelosi emphasized that "a strong relationship between the United States and Israel has long been supported by both Democrats and Republicans. America's commitment to the safety and security of the State of Israel is unwavering, ... [h]owever, the war in Iraq has made both America and Israel less safe." Pelosi's voting record shows consistent support for Israel. Pelosi voted in favor of the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995, which urged the federal government to relocate the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Prior to 2006 elections in the Palestinian Authority, she voted for a Congressional initiative disapproving of participation in the elections by Hamas and other organizations defined as terrorist by the legislation. She agrees with the current U.S. stance in support of land-for-peace. She has applauded Israeli "hopeful signs" of offering land while criticizing Palestinian "threats" of not demonstrating peace in turn. She states, "If the Palestinians agree to coordinate with Israel on the evacuation, establish the rule of law, and demonstrate a capacity to govern, the world may be convinced that finally there is a real partner for peace".
  10. Pelosi has voiced heavy criticism over Israel's plan to annex parts of the West Bank and Jordan Valley. She said Israeli annexation would undermine U.S. national security interests.
  11. Nancy Pelosi is one of the few members of Congress to have traveled to North Korea. She has expressed concern about the danger of nuclear proliferation from the North Korean regime, and the ongoing problems of hunger and oppression imposed by that country's leadership.
In August 2017, following Trump's warning that North Korea "will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen" in the event of further threats to the United States, Pelosi said the comments were "recklessly belligerent and demonstrate a grave lack of appreciation for the severity of the North Korean nuclear situation. His saber-rattling and provocative, impulsive rhetoric erode our credibility."
  1. Pelosi opposes the actions of the current Russian regime.
  2. Pelosi supported the NATO-led military intervention in Libya in 2011. She also favored arming Syria's rebel fighters.
  3. In January 2019, Pelosi criticized President Trump's planned withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria and Afghanistan. She called Trump's announcement a "Christmas gift to Vladimir Putin".
  4. In mid-October 2007, after the House Foreign Affairs Committee passed a resolution to label the 1915 killing of Armenians by Ottoman Turks as genocide, Pelosi pledged to bring the measure to a vote. The draft resolution prompted warnings from President Bush and fierce criticism from Turkey, with Turkey's Prime Minister saying that approval of the resolution would endanger U.S.–Turkey relations.[260] After House support eroded, the measure's sponsors dropped their call for a vote, and in late October Pelosi agreed to set the matter aside.
The resolution was passed during Pelosi's second term as a speaker. The house voted 405 to 11 in October 2019 to confirm the resolution.
Kevin Owen McCarthy : *(He) is an American politician serving as House Minority Leader in the United States House of Representatives since 2019. A member of the Republican Party, he previously served as House Majority Leader under Speakers John Boehner and Paul Ryan from 2014 to 2019. He has been the U.S. Representative for California's 23rd congressional district since 2007.
He was formerly chairman of the California Young Republicans and the Young Republican National Federation. McCarthy worked as district director for U.S. Representative Bill Thomas, and in 2000 was elected as a trustee to the Kern Community College District. He then served in the California State Assembly from 2002 to 2006, the last two years as Minority Leader. When Thomas retired from the U.S. House in 2006, McCarthy ran to succeed him and won the election. California's 23rd district, numbered as the 22nd district from 2007 to 2013, is based in Bakersfield and includes large sections of Kern County and Tulare County, as well as part of the Quartz Hill neighborhood in northwest Los Angeles County.
McCarthy was elected to House leadership as the Republican Chief Deputy Whip, from 2009 to 2011, and House Majority Whip, from 2011 until August 2014, when he was elected House Majority Leader to replace the outgoing Eric Cantor, who was defeated in his primary election. After announcing his candidacy for Speaker on September 28, 2015, he dropped out of the race on October 8 in favor of Paul Ryan.
When the Republicans lost their majority in the 2018 midterm elections, McCarthy was subsequently elected as House Minority Leader in January 2019, making him the first California Republican to hold the post. McCarthy was also the unsuccessful Republican nominee for Speaker in 2019, losing the election to Nancy Pelosi, a fellow Californian.
His Political Positions :
  1. In 2003, while minority leader in the state assembly, McCarthy "support[ed] most abortion rights, but oppose[d] spending tax dollars on abortions". By 2015, however, McCarthy was a "staunch anti-abortion-rights advocate." McCarthy is a supporter of the Hyde Amendment (a provision, annually renewed by Congress since 1976, that bans federal funds for abortion), and in 2011 co-sponsored a bill, the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act", to make the Hyde Amendment permanent. This bill was especially controversial because it provided an exemption for funding terminations of pregnancies caused by only "forcible rape", which prompted abortion-rights activists to call the bill a redefinition of rape.
  2. On September 17, 2020, McCarthy voted against House Resolution 908 to condemn racism against Asian-Americans related to the COVID-19 pandemic. McCarthy said the resolution was, "a waste of time," and further that, "At the heart of this resolution is the absurd notion that referring to the virus as a Wuhan virus or the China virus is the same as contributing to violence against Asian Americans."
  3. McCarthy was an early supporter of Trump in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries, saying that Trump's "intensity" could help the Republicans win House seats.
  4. After the 2018 mid-term elections, in which Democrats won a majority in the House, McCarthy said that Democrats should not investigate President Donald Trump. He described investigations of Trump as a "small agenda", and that "America's too great of a nation to have such a small agenda."
  5. McCarthy and other House Republicans investigated Hillary Clinton for years over the 2012 Benghazi attack. In 2015, McCarthy said that the investigation, which found no evidence of wrong-doing on Clinton's part, had hurt poll numbers.
  6. In October 2019, McCarthy said "there's nothing that the president did wrong" in regards to President Trump requesting that the Ukrainian President start an investigation into 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. McCarthy added, "the President wasn't investigating a campaign rival, the President was trying to get to the bottom, just as every American would want to know, why did we have this Russia hoax that actually started within Ukraine."
  7. That same month, when Trump said "China should start an investigation into the Bidens", McCarthy shortly thereafter went on Fox & Friends to say, "You watch what the president said — he's not saying China should investigate."
  8. He's a climate change denier and supports ending environmental regulations.
  9. More recently, as House minority leader, McCarthy proposed several environmental bills designed to address climate change, which have been described as "narrow" and "modest". They include provisions to extend a tax credit for carbon capture technologies, and to plant trees.
  10. In 2014, McCarthy opposed the renewal of the charter of the Export-Import Bank of the United States, as he expects the private sector to take over the role.
On Foreign Policy :
1. McCarthy received campaign donations from Saudi Arabia's lobbyists.
2. On June 15, 2016, McCarthy told a group of Republicans, "There's two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump. Swear to God." Paul Ryan reminded colleagues the meeting was off the record, saying, "No leaks. This is how we know we're a real family here."
When asked about the comment, McCarthy's spokesman said that "the idea that McCarthy would assert this is absurd and false." After a tape of the comment was made public in May 2017, McCarthy claimed it was "a bad attempt at a joke.
3. In 2019, McCarthy had threatened to take "action" against two new Muslim congresswomen, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, who have sharply criticized the Israeli government's policies in the Palestinian territories and embraced the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. McCarthy said that if Democrats "do not take action I think you'll see action from myself."
4. McCarthy voiced support for Hong Kong protesters. He wrote that "the NBA seems more worried about losing business than standing up for freedom."
5. In January 2020, after the United States assassinated a top Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, McCarthy criticized his Democratic counterpart in the House, Nancy Pelosi, for "defending" Soleimani.
6. McCarthy said he supported Israel's planned annexation of the West Bank. He signed a letter addressed to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that reaffirms "the unshakeable alliance between the United States and Israel".
7. As House majority leader, McCarthy led efforts to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare). In March 2017, the House Republican repeal legislation, the American Health Care Act, was pulled from the floor minutes before a scheduled vote. Following changes made during an internal Republican debate, the bill narrowly passed the House, 217–213, in a May 2017 party-line vote.
8. McCarthy opposed the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009, which added perceived gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, and disabilities as protected classes under existing federal hate crimes law. He has voted against the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2007.
9. Throughout 2018, McCarthy opposed efforts to codify the legal status of DREAMers after Trump suspended Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) which provided temporary stay for undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as minors. McCarthy opposed efforts to codify the DACA protection because he thought it would depress turnout among the Republican base in the upcoming 2018 midterms elections. According to Politico, it was thought a DACA-type bill could have also undermined McCarthy's chances of becoming House Speaker after Paul Ryan retired from Congress, as it would have made it harder for McCarthy to attract the support of hard-line conservatives.
10. In July 2018, House Democrats called for a floor vote that sought to abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). House GOP leaders scrapped the latter and called for the House to vote on a resolution authored by McCarthy and Clay Higgins to support ICE. House Speaker Paul Ryan's spokeswoman said Democrats "will now have the chance to stand with the majority of Americans who support ICE and vote for this resolution", or otherwise follow "extreme voices on the far left calling for abolishment of an agency that protects us."
11. In June 2019, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, compared the holding centers for undocumented immigrants at the Mexico–United States border to "concentration camps". McCarthy strongly criticized her words, saying they showed disrespect for Holocaust victims.
12. McCarthy was a supporter of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which barred federal recognition of same-sex marriage and banned same-sex couples from receiving federal spousal benefits; after President Barack Obama instructed the Justice Department not to defend the law in court, McCarthy supported House Republicans' legal defense of the law. When the DOMA case reached the Supreme Court in 2013, McCarthy joined Boehner and Eric Cantor in signing a brief urging the Court to uphold the law.
13. McCarthy has a "D-" rating from NORML regarding his voting record on cannabis-related matters. He voted against allowing veterans' access to medical marijuana, if legal in their state, per their Veterans Health Administration doctor's recommendation.
14. McCarthy introduced the FORWARD Act in 2018, which "would provide $95 million in research funding for valley fever and other fungal diseases". The bill provides $5 million for a "blockchain pilot program", facilitating sharing data between doctors and scientists researching such diseases. It would also fund $8 million in matching grant money to be awarded every year for five years to local groups applying for research grants, as well as $10 million each year for five years to CARB-X, a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services public-private partnership.
15. On October 23, 2018, McCarthy tweeted that Democratic donors businessman George Soros, businessman Tom Steyer and former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg, were trying to “buy” the upcoming election.
16. Steyer said McCarthy's tweet was a "straight-up antisemitic move" because the three Democrats are Jewish.
17. McCarthy claims that social media platforms, such as Twitter, are actively censoring conservative politicians and their supporters. He called on Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to testify before Congress on the matter.
18. McCarthy also suggested that Google was biased against Republicans due to some of its short-lived vandalism of the English Wikipedia entry on the California Republican Party that was automatically indexed in the search results.
Protest Votes :
1. Barbara Lee (CA-13)
2. Justin Amash (MI-3)
Made it to the end! Congratulations, now vote wisely to choose your Speaker!

I hope that perhaps putting into words exactly how I feel will help relieve some of the worry and pressures I'm feeling inside.<br /> This may be long so I do apologies and thank you for taking the time to read. <em>(Also please be aware I talk about my sexuality so just in case anything of the like may make you uncomfortable.)</em><br /> So I (currently 33) was born male and as of recently lived that way and have recently come out as gender fluid however I am unsure if I truly want to be female. Constantly reinforced by society that I am a boy I should dress, play etc as a boy should. I have a boy's name which to be honest unlike most non binary I am happy with and I've never felt uncomfortable with being referred to as he/him.<br /> However I have always felt this underlying concern/question that I am not who I am supposed to be. I remember, quite late into puberty I still had not masturbated and asked my mom if I was "broken" I had never had a sexual attraction to women so when being around male friends who would comment on how attractive that girl was or how hot celebrity x, y and z were I simply would smile, remain silent or over play it. However I never felt anything. The first time I did manage to successfully masturbate helped to alleviate these feelings of "brokenness" but again this was not due to being aroused by that of a female, or even male.<br /> I think before moving on it may be important to highlight moments I can recall where moments that I was struggling with my gender would surface however I am aware that these could have been "normal" behavior for a young boy. I remember having my sister dress me up as we would pretend to be spice girls...I wanted to be Geri as she was the one I liked the most. I loved toys and I remember playing with my sisters Barbie and RV however this was suppressed by me having an action man doll. I remember going to the shops with my and sister looking at dresses and holding one up to me and half jokingly "does this suit me?" Of course this was seen as funny, I wanted to be an entertainer so this was just something people saw me do and think "oh you, aren't you funny". A final pre/early puberty memory I have was seeing my sister have some new heeled shoes for Christmas so I snuck into my sister's room and tried them on however being young and unsure how to walk in them I instantly tipped over snapping the heel clean off, upsetting my sister and leaving me to put this experience as a reason to not pursue wearing heels.<br /> I know this is going on so let's move forward, in 2016 I moved away from home. I was 18 and lived over 100 miles south of my hometown living and working with a unique cast of characters my eyes opened up to all manners of people. What I take from this is this would of been the very first time I openly questioned my sexuality...perhaps this is why I never felt comfortable, why I felt "broken" however even when someone did make advances with me I panicked and once again repressing these feelings and continued with my day to day.<br /> During this time I happily chose to cross-dress for a department football match. Now I'm not a fan of football but when the ladies team needed a goal keeper I was their only option and I um'd and ar'd ultimately until they explained that I would need to dress up as a girl which I then jumped at the chance. In a poorly fitting outfit comprised of a crop top and mini skirt I felt comfortable I vaguely remember playing it off as a joke but thinking back now it was not only fun but I enjoyed it.<br /> Over the years after this point dressing in women's clothes never really cropped up but of course I would look at dresses in a shop and wonder how it would look on me. My friend group at the time was a very stereotypical bunch of lads beer, football and girls. I get on with them they're a great bunch but I always felt uncomfortable and out of place. I would redirect a conversation so I could join in as it would primarily be about football or girls. I continued to get on with my life, feeling forever sad, I had moments of happiness but many were forced.<br /> Now the next part of this story could be a bit TMI so you can skip if you want however I feel it's a stepping stone to where I am and why I'm writing this. I always had a fascination of transformation I remember as a child I would watch a tv show, a movie where the protagonist would be transformed into something/someone or of course body swap with someone of the opposite sex. Now what frustrated me and again building up this narrative that I was "broken" was feeling of arousal I would get from these scenarios. After watching I would be left in a state of sadness as I wanted that to happen to me, be it being turned into an animal or having my body swapped with that of a women. So upon searching the internet I found sites that allowed people who had a similar interest and would draw and upload artwork of men becoming women, women becoming men, people being turned into animals - I was happy I had found like minded people who, through their art could satisfy this deep yearning to be someone else.<br /> <em>(A side note when I was younger I loved theatre. I attended a youth theatre and this was always because I could be someone else)</em><br /> As time went on I found more and more sites which offered artwork, offered stories - stories where I could put myself.in the shoes of the character so in my mind I could live out that fantasy. Eventually I discovered the furry fandom, briefly the furry fandom are a group of people who are fascinated by anthropomorphic animals and where they create a character that they use to interact with one another. "Great!" I thought I could pretend to be someone else. Not thinking I chose a male based character but would regularly design a female version. The main benefit of being in this fandom was meeting many people, people of all shapes, sizes, sexualities and genders. It opened my eyes to so many possibilities. This feeling I had always pushed away surfaced again but tenfold. I first began to question my sexuality more realizing that I wasn't straight and then experimenting to see if I was gay, I enjoyed my experience but again I wasn't turned on by a man. Speaking to people who had a better understanding of the different sexualities on the spectrum we identified that I fall into the Asexual umbrella, specifically Demisexual.<br /> Apologies for all of this info dump but I promise we are getting to end….<br /> During this time I came across sissy pornography something inside me enjoyed how these cross dressers were wearing ladies panties, makeup, stockings etc and after some time something inside me clicked "I want to try on some female underwear" my thinking was perhaps if I tried a pair and they was uncomfortable I could remove this idea that I wanted to be a girl. So I went out to the local Tesco I walked upstairs looking like I was up to no good, I had researched sizing and worked out that back then I would of been a 22 panty size. So I picked up the first pair I laid my eyes on went to the self service <em>(luckily no tag so I wouldn't have to ask for it to be removed)</em> paid for my "contraband" and went home.<br /> I took them out quickly and held them up if I remember rightly they were a pair of briefs, not full briefs, navy blue thrilly around the edge and a little bow in the centre. I took off my current pair of boxers and slid on the panty and as they rested in place I was amazed by actually how soft and comfortable they felt. I looked at myself in the mirror and I loved the way they looked and the way I felt. I felt cute and comfortable, something which I had not felt for ever or the least for a very long time. So months passed, no one knew about my "dirty little secret" . I felt bad, like I was doing something wrong. But I chalked it up to a sexual kink and not a way of me opening up about who I am. I was asked by my sister to house sit while she and my brother in law went away and while sitting in their living room I suddenly had the urge to rummage through my sisters clothes and try some items on. I found a blue/purplish dress, a pair of tights and shoes which at that time fitted me...not comfortably I might add but my feet squeezed in. I put a little bit of makeup on <em>(poorly)</em> I had a reasonable length hair then so I found and donned a headband and upon looking in the mirror I felt good amazingly this dress fitted it wasn't too tight or too loose the tights showed off my legs I was happy, I took a photo but suddenly I was hit by a feeling of guilt and again like was doing something illegal…"this isn't right I shouldn't be doing this" so with that I took off the clothes put everything back and did my best to forget it however the photo I took would always be a reminder of how comfortable and pretty I felt at that exact moment.<br /> Moving forward I continued to wear my ladies underwear, I bought another pack with different patterns all still donning the tiny bow on the front of the lace always making me feel like a girl when I wore them. One day when I was visiting my mom, she wanted me to stay, I declined as I had no change of clothes but she insisted on washing my current underwear and borrowing a pair from my step dad<em>(clean I will add)</em>. Suddenly panic rushed over me winding me, I stuttered my objections leaving my mom feeling upset and unsure as to why I didn't want to stop and spend some time with her. She was unknowing of my little ladies underwear secret and how she would react washing a pair of white panties with lace, a bow and little hearts on...which her son was wearing.<br /> That same day and a reason I can't exactly remember my step dad took me out I think my car may have been in for its MOT hence why I was visiting. My step dad had brought up about me staying saying that it was fine for me to stay and that I could borrow a pair of his underwear <em>(again I'll add they would of been clean)</em> already frustrated of having to make excuses I let it out, my secret I had kept silent about for so long, was out between me and my step dad...and he was absolutely fine with it, he understood said that my mom doesn't need to know, he would offer to do the washing instead of my mom limiting the chance my mom would see my pretty panties.<br /> Once back and feeling a little better that someone knew I bit the bullet and told my mom, her reaction was confusing. She seemed fine but withdrawn from it. I know she probably didn't understand it, why would her SON want to wear ladies underwear? Now that people close to me knew my secret I felt a little relieved. I decided to tell my aunt <em>(whom I'm very close with)</em> and she was extremely understanding and happy for me that I was comfortable. However over time the feeling of it being a “dirty thing that I shouldn't be doing” cropped back up. Perhaps because I couldn't go and wear more than a pair of knickers, still keeping it a secret from my sister who had that nice purple dress that made me feel so good and that I wanted to try on again without the worry of being considered a freak or it was just an odd kink.<br /> Eventually I was tormented enough to take every pair of pants I had and throw them away, gone for good I could forget about this silly little “phase”. I eventually told my sister who was shocked at this admittance but I think it was perhaps more so because I never told her sooner. I eventually told my dad after a conversation about my sexual orientation but I think that was brushed over as it was something he didn't want to consider.<br /> So from that point on I continued to live my life as I had before putting any thoughts about wanting to be a female to the back of my mind out of the way. I lost a lot of weight which helped me find better suiting clothing but from time to time I would see a woman wearing an outfit and I would, in my head, envy that I couldn't be her. I decided to binge every season of Ru Paul - I understand that drag queens are different from transgender however the confidence and bravery to live the life along with looking absolutely gorgeous was just another thing to be envious over.<br /> Which now brings us pretty much up to date the last few weeks thoughts of wearing women's underwear have surfaced and the idea of pushing them away has become difficult. I see items of clothing that I think I could pull off. I find that over all I have begun to feel more feminine, I've always hated my body hair but always seen it as a "man" thing to have whereas now I have shaved and smooth legs, chest and arms feel so good.<br /> I branched out and purchased some outfits I can wear under my male clothes, I've bought makeup to practice. To help prevent the "dirty feeling" I had when I first tried on ladies underwear I decided. I would control the narrative I would tell those closest. Granted I was a bit off handed with it as I couldn't bring myself to initially say it out loud but after the message I’d sent and was read, a deeper, emotional centric conversation was had. It was hard to hear how people thought they failed me and that they were so concerned that I could harm myself from not being happy.<br /> However I explained that 1. Coming out as genderfluid has helped me as I don't have to worry about being "caught" which would make for a more awkward conversation and 2. Over time as I become more comfortable with who I want to be. Who my true self is, I may hopefully find a place in my life where I can sit back without feeling guilty about being me.<br /> Of course I have a long road to go before I can be confident in who I want to be. As things stand and reciting these moments that have played a part to this point I think I will always come back to the idea that I am a woman at heart.<br /> Thank you for sticking around. I've written this to help me identify and validate my emotions and feelings at this time in my life and also as a call to anyone who read it and had experienced a similar trail of events.<br /> <strong>TL:DR:</strong> Can intermittent moments have lead me to this point or would my experiences have been more "above" the surface. I am just worried that how I'm feeling and how I have felt is not real and is from something else, from what I'm not sure. This is to put it out there to see if there are others whos experiences were similar.<br /> </div> submitted by <a href="?id=1606743973"> beardedguy87 </a> to <a href="?id=1606743793"> TransSpace </a> <span><a href="?id=1606744037">[link]</a></span> <span><a href="?id=1606744017">[comments]</a></span></p> <hr /><p>2020.10.16 18:39 <i style="color:green;">CrimmsonWind</i> <b>Big ol' post. How I went about researching top surgery (and to some degree, my identity), therapy, experience with parents, early life and signs, etc. I found personal accounts to be helpful when I was starting to look into things, so here's my contribution.</b></p> <p><div class="md">My therapist keeps telling me that it's good for people to know what's possible, both bad <em>and</em> good. I've been lucky in a lot of areas and I didn't want to post about it because I don't want people to feel bad. But she keeps telling me that hope is an important tool for people so, if this is upsetting, blame her lol.<br /> First some context and personal info about me. I'm nonbinary, but I lean and present masculine. I'm not on hormones. After wanting it for roughly 15 years, I got top surgery this year at the ripe old age of 29 (kidding about being old--sort of. I think this sub tends to skew pretty young, so I feel old compared to a lot of you lol).<br /> I am so sorry about the length of this. I tried to break it down into chunks so if you want to skip headers you can.<br /> Quick TL;DR Timeline:<br /> <ul> <li>Childhood/Early Teens: Gender??? who cares, I'm me</li> <li>Teens: I absolutely do not want these boobs but I don't have a choice. Gender still weird.</li> <li>Early 20s: Learned about other gender identities and gender affirming surgeries</li> <li>23: Started seriously considering top surgery for real.</li> <li>27: Called to schedule a consultation with NYU Langone.</li> <li>28: Had my consultation</li> <li>29: Had my surgery</li> </ul> <h1>Early Stuff</h1> Until ~puberty~ and the dreaded body changes, gender was largely not something I thought about. I knew people tended to fit someone into either male or female, and I knew people viewed me as female and treated me as such, but it's not something I felt strongly about for myself at all. Puberty wound up sending me into a bit of an existential crisis. I <em>hated</em> my breasts. I hated how they made my shirts fit weird, I hated how people treated me differently if they were sort of on display, I constantly felt like I was smuggling a pair of grapefruits around.<br /> My grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 50, and had a mastectomy. I was like, holy shit? <em>I WISH I WOULD GET BREAST CANCER SO THEY'D HAVE TO CUT OFF MY BOOBS!</em> Yes, in retrospect, holy <em>fuck</em> that is an awful way to go about it. At the time I didn't know you could just like... get surgery. My only experiences with surgery were emergency situations, so I thought something had to be immediately, grievously, life-threateningly wrong in order to get surgery. <br /> So I carried that ungodly wish around for a good several years. Yikes.<br /> At the time I also hadn't heard of the term "nonbinary" and it was also really eating at me. "Woman" absolutely felt wrong, but "Man" didn't quite feel right either. I used to joke about feeling like a shapeless amoeba <em>and being happy like that</em>. But there was no way that was valid... right?? Obviously I was wrong, I found out about different gender identities and was much happier in that regard. <br /> It may sound weird or look the same on the outside, but a lot of my masculine traits and tendencies are less about actually <em>being masculine</em> but really more about being <em>less feminine.</em> I know it looks the same from the outside but internally, it was an important distinction for me.<br /> Still hated having boobs, tho.<br /> <h1>Parents??</h1> This is one of the areas I really lucked out on, and the biggest thing I didn't want people to feel bad about. When it comes to my identity (and unrelated to this but my sexuality as well) my parents have been, well, remarkably chill.<br /> My dad has always been tuned into my social media, so he already knew everything and ultimately was the one who was like "what are you waiting for? Schedule an appointment already!" I had to bring him to a therapy appointment once to talk about surgery strategy, and he basically said "parents who can't support their kids unconditionally shouldn't be parents" without missing a beat so that was nice. Otherwise he basically just lets me take the lead. Let him know what I need from him, and he'll do it.<br /> My mom I was definitely more worried about, though it turned out to be pretty unfounded. My mom and I haven't had the greatest history. It basically boils down to a clash in personalities. I was a pretty shy kid, she was always pushy about it, and neither of us handled my Moody Teenager-ness well. Things have improved a lot since I became an adult and since I started antidepressant/antianxiety meds. I also had to bring her to a therapy appointment to talk about surgery recovery strategy, where it turns out she always knew about my identity in some way, she was just waiting for me to tell her myself. And then she was all hands on deck. She checked in with me after every pre-op and post-op appointment, she asked if there was anything she needed to do or buy, she dug up a bunch of her current husband's old button-ups for me to wear post-op, she stayed with me at the hospital and took me home, etc.<br /> There was never any weirdness or questioning from either of them. I knew my dad would be chill, I was always worried about my mom though, but it was all a pleasant surprise.<br /> <h1>Researching Top Surgery (and Therapy)</h1> Thanks to the internet and places like Tumblr, I was introduced to the concept of gender affirming surgeries. I was initially skeptical that I qualified (the good ol' "am I trans enough??" question) but the more I read personal accounts and stories from people, the more I realized that I did indeed fit the bill.<br /> But I was working at CVS at the time, had no health insurance, was (and still am) paying off student loans... it just wasn't going to happen at that time. So for 5 years I did nothing. Just plucked away at life.<br /> Then I got a new job with actual health insurance. Interest renewed. It would still be a couple of years before I even called to make a consultation but, I started looking into everything again.<br /> So I came up with a list of questions and goals that needed to be answered and researched:<br /> <ul> <li>What surgeon and where?</li> <li>Did my health insurance even cover it?</li> <li>If so, what information and documents would I need?</li> <li>How much of it does insurance cover?</li> <li>How much time off would I need for recovery?</li> </ul> I would like to emphasize, I knew NOTHING about insurance going into this. But honestly, it's not that difficult. Go through it slowly, google any terms you don't know or understand, and don't be afraid to call or email your insurance to ask even the stupidest of questions. It's their job to answer your questions.<br /> First, I found my insurance's policy for "Gender Affirming Services (Transgender Services)" which is its official title within my insurance. I read it several times, and in my case I was glad that the language avoided sticking strictly to the binary, because I was worried I wouldn't qualify. They used phrases like "gender identity other than that assigned at birth." I actually just looked at it now and it's been updated even further to be even more inclusive, which is nice. It has a list of services and surgeries that are covered, along with any requirements. I saved the pdf, as well as printed it and stuck it in a big 3-ring binder that would become my go-to resource.<br /> Next I started looking at surgeons that accepted my insurance, and whose results and reviews seemed good enough for me. Transbucket was still working at the time, so I went through the images and wrote a list of surgeons down. I live in NY, which has a few good but long-waitlisted surgeons, so to keep things a little less complicated I decided to narrow the list down to NY surgeons. I read some sketchy things about Mt. Sinai's surgeons at the time, so I decided to nix them from the list. Ultimately I decided to go with Dr. Bluebond-Langner with NYU Langone. Knowing there was going to be a long wait to deal with the rest of my prep, I called to schedule a consult pretty much immediately after I made my choice. The consult wound up being a year later, so that gave me time and a concrete deadline to work toward.<br /> Call date: January 2018<br /> Consult date: January 2019<br /> NYU Langone sent me a pretty comprehensive packet of info, including some requirements for getting surgery. Mainly it was a diagnosis of gender dysphoria and letter from a therapist, which would also cover my insurance requirements.<br /> So my next step was finding a suitable therapist. I had already read about the long wait times between consults and surgery, so I didn't immediately jump into therapy. There was a long stretch of just doing nothing.<br /> Initially I started out by using the "find a provider" tool on my insurance website to try and find a therapist, but it wasn't really getting me anywhere. BCBS's various websites suck ass. After having some initial talks with a few therapists, I found out it's kind of annoying for them to work with insurance in NY, so they work out of network but provide the receipts and codes for you to submit a claim on your own.<br /> So instead I started by searching "WPATH therapist [location]" and scoped out the results. They weren't necessarily registered with WPATH, but they were at least familiar with it and that was the important factor, for me. I reached out to them explaining who I was, what my identity was, and that I was seeking a diagnosis and letter so that I could get top surgery. I told them that I was absolutely okay if they were uncomfortable with this and did not want to continue.<br /> Everyone responded kindly and was down for it, but I was put off by the short responses from some of them or the informal abbreviations. In any other normal everyday situation I absolutely would not care, but I had taken the time to write this formal email where I basically bared my deepest secrets to them, and getting back a "k" was like... nah man. This ain't it.<br /> Except one woman who responded with the kind of thoughtfulness and care I was expecting, and seemed like a perfect fit. I love her to death and I'm still having sessions with her on a regular basis.<br /> Therapy start: May 2019<br /> It was my first time being in therapy at all. Some of it was about my identity, some of it was just general life stuff, but she's great at guiding things along and she's not afraid to ask me if that's what I really think or if I'm just saying what I think she wants me to say, stuff like that. Also I've slipped out a few curses in front of her (I curse a LOT in casual conversation) so it's pretty funny when your therapist isn't afraid to say "fuck" in front of you now.<br /> In November 2019 we worked on and finalized my letter. She had me read it a dozen times before I signed off on it, and we made sure all the pertinent info and requirements were in, including the diagnosis code for gender dysphoria. She faxed it over to the hospital and also gave me a copy. Ultimately the letter was good for one year but she made it clear that she would absolutely change the date and resubmit it if my surgery date wound up falling past that point.<br /> A big source of my info on surgery, recovery, and good stuff to have around has come from blog posts and from this sub. You have been invaluable. It was good to see the gamut of recoveries from "ridiculously smooth" to "absolute hell" and help me plan for the worst case (which thankfully wasn't necessary).<br /> <h1>The World's Longest Home Stretch AKA Approaching Surgery</h1> Consult in January 2020 finally arrived. I was in the waiting room longer than I was actually in any part of the consult lmao. Dr. Bluebond-Langner is nice and great, let me be clear. But for her it was just another Tuesday, so she was basically just blasting right along and asking me questions while taking measurements of my chest. I had some questions and she was happy to answer but I was also just kind of nervous and caught up in the expediency of the whole process, so it was all done in like, 3 minutes.<br /> Then the photographer team took photos of me shirtless in several positions and angles. Super, duper weird and awkward but they were extremely nice and professional, and pretty made it as un-weird as possible.<br /> The good news is that they have a stellar patient portal where you can ask questions pretty much whenever you want, and they also sent me another email and another physical packet of information which largely covered anything I forgot to ask in my stupor.<br /> About 3 days later I got my surgery date.<br /> Surgery date: August 2020 <br /> Obviously COVID has been a hell of a thing. Appointments were pushed back, masks were worn, hand sanitizer was applied judiciously, temperatures were taken at doorways. I waited with bated breath to see if my appointment would be rescheduled. Thankfully I lucked out big time and hospitals started doing non-emergency surgeries again before my date came up, so they called and told me I was still on for August. <br /> I had to have an appointment with my Primary Care Physician (PCP) and explain that I was having surgery and I was going to need a bunch of tests done, and the results sent to the hospital. My doctor's office is a teaching office, so I basically had to come out to my PCP and the student shadowing her, but it was all chill. My doctor told me that she has several trans patients now and they're seeing an increase in people who are more comfortable to come out, which is nice. So she was 100% down to do whatever tests the hospital needed.<br /> In practice, getting the results in and to the hospital on time was a bit of a pain in the ass. I think technically several of my results were late but it didn't screw me over. The tests had to be done within a certain window before surgery (not too early, basically) but the processing took forever on a couple of them, and I had to ask and triple check with the doctor's office a few times because the hospital was still missing a couple of them. It was a bit of unnecessary stress leading up to surgery lol.<br /> PTO scheduled, bag packed, took a train into the city for surgery.<br /> <h1>Surgery Experience</h1> First off, everyone at the hospital was super nice the entire time I was there.<br /> You're not allowed to eat or drink after midnight the night before. That night I woke up every hour from a nightmare that I had accidentally eaten something.<br /> I showed up in sweats and a hoodie, got my patient wrist band (with my preferred name!) and then waited for what felt like an eternity while my mom and I chatted.<br /> Someone came and got me, I had to brush my teeth and use mouthwash (something about cutting down on possible infection), had me pee in a cup one last time, and gave me a gown. My mom was allowed to join me in the "staging area" where other people were stationed and waiting for their surgeries to start. It was just a lot of taking vitals, starting the IV, people introducing themselves to you and what their role was going to be in your surgery, Dr. Bluebond-Langner marking up my chest and asking me how I was feeling. <br /> It was the most chill hospital experience I have ever had. Granted all of my other experiences were like, emergency room visits where things were much more hectic. This was all planned out, everyone was relaxed, everything was fine.<br /> After that, one big nap. The last thing I remember was getting up on the table and apologizing for being in the way while someone said "don't be sorry, you're the star of the show, we're all here for you" and then I was out like a light.<br /> Next time I woke up I was in the recovery wing, where they stash you before they bring you to your permanent room. Initially, I was pretty dizzy and out of it, but I was definitely waking up. They were getting ready to move me, so I had to stand up, but I somehow managed to pull one of the drain bulbs out (NOT the tube that was in my body, thank god) so I looked like I was in a horror movie with a big puddle of blood on my side lol. They had me swap gowns.<br /> While this was going on and I was standing up, it was the only time I felt bad. I felt sick and I told someone I think I needed to sit down. As soon as I sat down in the wheelchair I immediately felt better, and they were ready to wheel me to my room.<br /> <h1>Post-Op in the Hospital</h1> Dr. Bluebond-Langner keeps people overnight, so I stayed the night in the hospital.<br /> This is another area where I feel a little bad, but my recovery has been pretty stellar and apparently I'm part Wolverine from X-Men because doctors and nurses keep telling me that I'm healing really well. Almost immediately, I was fairly mobile. The anesthesia hasn't really hung around. I was walking city blocks upon city blocks to my post-op appointments, and I'd say maybe about 1 month post-op I really started getting my range of motion back in my arms. I'm a little over 2 months now post op and can fully raise my arms over my head, etc. My pain management was also basically nonexistent. I used some extra strength tylenol for a few days until I forgot to take it, realized I didn't really seem to need it, and just stopped from thereon out.<br /> STILL NO LIFTING THOUGH! Everyone is adamant about that.<br /> After my initial hiccup with the anesthesia, it wore off pretty fast. I was up and able to walk laps around the hospital without issue. The nurse taking care of me had to keep telling me to slow down. I was wide awake, chatting and eating full meals (side note: the hospital food there was REALLY GOOD). I was able to get in an out of bed on my own, I started stripping my own drains (scared the crap out of the nurse who just saw someone moving behind my door and didn't realize I was able to do it on my own).<br /> A few times throughout my stay, either Dr. Bluebond-Langner herself or someone on her team would come by and undo my compression vest to check things out and make sure there were no issues.<br /> If I had one complaint, it's the IV fluids. I had to pee CONSTANTLY.<br /> My mom stayed with me until the end of visiting hours, chatting and doing her own work, occasionally helping me reach things, flagging down a nurse when I had to pee for the hundreth time, etc.<br /> Otherwise, I was discharged the next morning. The Uber ride and subsequent train ride home were pretty smooth. I was worried that every little bump would kill me, but the tightness of the compression vest kept everything pretty secure. <br /> <h1>Recovery at Home</h1> I was pretty self-sufficient. We had already moved a bunch of water glasses onto the counter for easy access, and I had a bunch of reasonably healthy easy-cook food ready to go. I had an adjustable incline pillow for sleeping on my back and keeping me somewhat elevated, coupled with a neck pillow and a total blackout sleep mask. My dog kept me company.<br /> Sleeping is honestly probably the worst part. I am very much a side and stomach sleeper. And although my recovery was pretty smooth, surgery is still surgery and I found it difficult to get a good, restful sleep through the general uncomfortableness.<br /> Showering and bathing was probably the second worst part. Taking a shallow bath was definitely easier but I basically couldn't get really clean because I was constantly worried about accidentally pulling the drains, or getting something wet.<br /> Part of my dismissal included a packet with a calendar for measuring and recording my drains. I tried to do that at about 9am and 9pm every day to keep an even 12 hour spread. I'm not a particularly squeamish person, but even I initially was a bit grossed out by the contents of the drains. I got used to it after a couple of days, though.<br /> My drains were, mercifully, not painful or irritated at the drain sites. The only issue I had was a VERY small hematoma on my right side, down where the drain actually starts in your body. Emptying my drains on that side started to produce a slightly painful pinching feeling in that spot, and putting pressure on it would hurt a bit. I contacted the surgeon's office about it, and they gave me the option to come in, or just ride it out and let it reabsorb itself. I chose to leave it alone, and it started feeling better after a few days.<br /> I had several post-op appointments, 1 each week after surgery for 3 weeks. First week was just a checkup, nothing super notable to be honest. Basically just a "holy crap you're only one week out? I would not have guessed, you're walking around just fine."<br /> At 2 weeks, we took the drains out. Thank god, because I went back to work the next day and really needed a proper shower. I still had to keep the compression vest on, but I was at least allowed to take it off and wash it. That thing was rank. And I was allowed to wear deodorant.<br /> At 3 weeks, I was officially allowed to take the vest off. They showed me how to do scar massaging, they did a quick draining of some fluid in both of my sides (in Dr. Bluebond-Langner's own words, she was being "nitpicky" about it because it was a minor amount, but figured she might as well just do it while I was there), made me promise I'd keep moisturizing my nipple scabs, and said they'll see me in a month.<br /> The scabs fell off eventually by the way. I think one fell off at like 3 weeks, the other at 4. Yes, it looks terrifying. No, they didn't die. Yes, it's normal. It is weird to see the very pink, fresh skin underneath but that's normal.<br /> Now I just oil up my scars with bio-oil every day and massage as part of my morning routine. I already made a previous post about <a href="?id=1606743911">my scars being hypertrophic</a> and how I'm fine with that, and it might be hard to believe when you see hypertrophic scars, but they look and feel much better now than they did, and they're only going to keep getting better. <br /> I was using the silicone strips, but my scars kinda go up near my arm pits and when I get sweaty at work, it makes them come loose. I was taping those parts but the tape irritates my skin, so I just stopped trying to make that work for now.<br /> <h1>Closing</h1> So that's where I'm at now. I feel much, much better. I stand taller instead of hunching over to try and hide my chest. I'm probably a lot older than a lot of folks in here who probably can't even imagine waiting until nearly 30 to get to some of these points. I guess if there's a takeaway it's 1) sometimes surgery goes pretty smoothly and 2) your life doesn't end if you don't transition before 18.<br /> I THINK it's pretty comprehensive in here but, if there's a particular question you have about something feel free to ask.<br /> </div> submitted by <a href="?id=1606744021"> CrimmsonWind </a> to <a href="?id=1606743949"> ftm </a> <span><a href="?id=1606743864">[link]</a></span> <span><a href="?id=1606743909">[comments]</a></span></p> <hr /><p>2020.10.14 19:35 <i style="color:green;">Paranoiadestroyer</i> <b>UK mental health helplines and resources</b></p> <p><div class="md">Here I will include a master post of UK mental health helplines/resources, feel free to message me directly if there is anything you would like me to add to this post.<br /> <strong>Mental health helplines:</strong><br /> <strong>Shout</strong><br /> <em>Shout is the UK’s first 24/7 text service, free on all major mobile networks, for anyone in crisis anytime, anywhere.

I’m writing this in hopes that somebody can help me figure out what it is I’m feeling. If I say anything ignorant or comes off rude, I’d like to apologize ahead of time. <br /> Anyways, I’m 32 male, and for years now I’ve been trying to figure out if I’m Bi sexual. I’m a very sexually charged person. I am in a relationship and have confessed some of My sexual fantasies such as hotwife or cucking to my partner. She seemed a little thrown off and caught off guard but that’s a different issue. My thing is, I find myself attracted , at least to the idea of these fantasies. I’ve also even considered casual play with a transgender, but with the catch that she look very feminine, from face to body with the exception of her penis. I get turned on at the thought of servicing her and even considered dating a transgender. I’ve even considered messing with men but only to the extent of blow jobs or even hand jobs or mutual masturbation. <br /> Tbh the thought of making out with a guy or even being affectionate turns me off. Or at least doesn’t seem appealing at all. But when it comes to sexual play, I seem to be for it. . <br /> I don’t find myself wanting to mess around with any fit , or great looking men or any (macho type) It’s always a general, average guy , type that I’d feel comfortable with as well. <br /> I’m extremely attracted to women and prefer them over anything but it’s always when I’m incredibly turned on or even drunk , when I feel like I’m open to the idea of messing with a guy. <br /> Anyways, I’m confused. I’m not sure if it’s just being horny or if I’m into them?<br /> Any insight would be appreciated. <br /> Thank you.<br /> </div> submitted by <a href="?id=1606744102"> callingdrlove87 </a> to <a href="?id=1606744072"> bisexualadults </a> <span><a href="?id=1606743880">[link]</a></span> <span><a href="?id=1606743964">[comments]</a></span></p> <hr /><p>2020.10.12 22:01 <i style="color:green;">Paranoiadestroyer</i> <b>UK mental health helplines and resources</b></p> <p><div class="md">Here I will include a master post of UK mental health helplines/resources, feel free to message me directly if there is anything you would like me to add to this post.<br /> <strong>Mental health helplines:</strong><br /> <strong>Shout</strong><br /> <em>Shout is the UK’s first 24/7 text service, free on all major mobile networks, for anyone in crisis anytime, anywhere.

In this letter, you claim “as Snoos, we do not tolerate hate, racism, and violence, and while we have work to do to fight these on our platform, our values are clear.”<br /> As of today, neither you nor any other Reddit admins have shared this letter anywhere on reddit.com. However, <a href="?id=1606743986">the response to this message was swift on Twitter</a>, where you were rightfully labeled as hypocritical based on your long and well-recorded history of defending racism and white supremacy on this site. <br /> Among the many responses was this message from former CEO of Reddit, Ellen Pao. <br /> <blockquote> <a href="?id=1606743829">I am obligated to call you out: You should have shut down the_donald instead of amplifying it and its hate, racism, and violence. So much of what is happening now lies at your feet. You don't get to say BLM when reddit nurtures and monetizes white supremacy and hate all day long</a><br /> </blockquote> Many others shared links and screenshots of your past statements saying <a href="?id=1606744017">“Open racism and slurs are fine to post on Reddit”</a>.<br /> The problem of Reddit’s leadership supporting and providing a platform for racist users and hateful communities has long been an issue. Nearly six years ago, <a href="?id=1606743817">dozens of subreddits signed the original open letter to the Reddit admins</a> calling for action. While <a href="?id=1606743835">the Reddit admins acknowledged the letter</a> and said it was a high priority to address this issue, extremely little has been done in the intervening years.<br /> On June 5, you shared this update on <a href="?id=1606743801">/Announcements</a>, <a href="?id=1606743876">Upcoming changes to our content policy, our board, and where we’re going from here</a>. In the post, you stated that there is a need for continued adjustments of Reddit’s content policy to address racism and that this remains a priority. These continued statements that you hear us, that this is a priority, or that you are working on it are not enough. It has been five years since your return as CEO and this still remains Reddit’s most glaring problem.<br /> Steve, if you and Reddit genuinely care about the values of standing up to racism and hate, then you need to back it up with real action. As moderators on this website who have dedicated countless hours to keeping this site running, we call on Reddit to take the following steps:<br /> <ul> <li><strong>Enact a sitewide policy against racism, slurs, and hatespeech targeted at protected groups.</strong> For too many years, Steve Huffman and the other Admins have stood by and allowed this site to fester with hate in the name of “free speech.” It is time to enact a specific and detailed policy that protects the disadvantaged members of our communities from hate based on their sexuality, gender identity, ethnicity, country of origin, religion, or disability.<br /></li> <li><strong>Be proactive in banning hate-based communities</strong> In the past Reddit has only taken action on hate subreddits when they were featured in the news and risked Reddit’s reputation or when they were documented and featured on <a href="?id=1606743843">/AgainstHateSubreddits</a> and other forums. AHS should not have to be responsible for raising awareness of hate subreddits and reporting them to the admins. This site should take responsibility for keeping its users safe by banning any remaining subreddits devoted to hate and racism and preventing the creation of hateful subreddits in the future. <br /></li> <li><strong>Be proactive in banning hate users</strong> Reddit needs to not only ban hate subreddits, but must be proactive in banning the moderators of these subreddits and their most active users. Too often these users have been allowed to stay on this website after numerous sitewide violations, letting them move on to participate in new hate communities and spread their vitriol further across this site.<br /></li> <li><strong>Reddit needs to hire more minorities / women, especially in leadership roles</strong> Reddit needs to hire more women and people of color — particularly in leadership roles in the company — to help shift the corporate culture and policies to be more equitable for all. In addition, Reddit needs to take adequate steps to protect these employees from harassment. <br /></li> <li><strong>Reddit needs to hire more community managers</strong> According to Reddit's <a href="?id=1606744067">job listings</a> there are dozens of open positions that the company is hiring for, and yet not a single one for Community. Reddit has enacted numerous policies over the years that have been detrimental to the ability of Reddit’s moderators or the broader Reddit community. Reddit needs more community managers to build positive relations and engagement with the site’s volunteer moderators.<br /></li> <li><strong>Honor Alexis Ohanian's wishes to have his Reddit Board seat filled with a black candidate</strong> - On June 5, Reddit Co-Founder and Executive Chairman <a href="?id=1606743989">announced that he would be stepping down</a> from his role on Reddit's Board of Directors. Alexis requested that his position be filled with a black candidate and we ask Reddit to honor that request. While you have stated your intent to honor that request, we are asking for an announcement to be made on this decision in the next 3 months. We believe this is not an issue that should be put off for action years down the road.<br /></li> </ul> At <a href="?id=1606743987">/AgainstHateSubreddits</a>, we have laid out the many failures of Steve time and again to stand up to white supremacy on this site <a href="?id=1606744033">time</a> and <a href="?id=1606743971">time</a> and <a href="?id=1606743774">time</a> again.<br /> With a website with the impact of Reddit on the broader conversations being held in communities around the world, this website needs real leadership and real action.<br /> We hope that Reddit will not just share empty platitudes — but will take a meaningful stand against hate, and take these recommendations to heart.<br /> This letter is co-signed by more than <del>200</del>
