So, what can you do to help?

I just sent the suggested e-mail in to the HHS - it only took two minutes.  Sophie (an older transgendered American!)

This might be just a part of the Trump administration's attack on transgender issues in general.  Ignore or bury the facts and claim there's no problem.
I'm a 63 year old male who has been thinking about SRS for many years.  I also was a  full cross dresser for a few years.  I wear a bra, pantyhose and nail polish daily because it just feels right.  I am exploring where I want to take things and recently talked to my doctor about HRT.

I DID NOT think it was an attack at all.  Sorry, just don't.  MILITARY MATTERS ARE serious AND unique!  It is under study was my understanding.  A decision will be made, and we move on. 

In life, one does not get whatever they want, all the time.  Life is not fair or just.  Life is a battle.  If you want everything from the govt or others, sorry, you will never be happy. 

Regarding bathrooms.  My therapist and I were chatting and she said we are proud by the way that we have "all gender" bathrooms.   

I stated that is all we ever needed but our govt got involved and screwed it up so bad, everyone was mad.   

SO THERE we supposedly won, but lost.  And by the way, if you think it (OBAMAS MANDATORY NIGHTMARE) was a win for TG people you are wrong IMHO! 

People down south and around the country would have beat the crap out of us because we walked in on their wife's and kids. 

Having lived throughout the USA, WE LOST THAT BATTLE even though It was a fake, false and very dangerous battle that put everyone on the losing side.  And would have triggered violence like we have never seen. 

WE need to win, we need to win by moving forward, not by putting us in false and very dangerous situations that would end terribly for all. 

I know others will hate me for what i say, but I want equality not violence and hostility for no reason. 

My counselors response (a die hard liberal said it all to me!  We need to be careful what we ask for because we need safety for all people. 

And by the way, no one gives a 's behind if I go to the bathroom by my self!  They would take more than offense when I go into their wife and CHILDRENS bathroom and could be a predator.  It is a dangerous deal for all.  I have 8 children.  I would not want that situation EVER!
