So I have been recently making some new health commitments, including Vegan Before Six and visiting the gym regularly (the aim is 4 times a week) and for an enby the gym has some unique challenges.
As I have touched on before many of my inspirations for informative posts come from the communities I am involved with on facebook, I often save comments and replies I make to then form them into posts for here, at the moment I have quite a backlog of them.
This issue was originally raised by a TERF who was putting down a trans* person who did not plan to medically transition, they also likened it to mental illness and compared it to their own battles with anorexia. To me this discussion raised many important points on what others think of trans* people who do not feel a need too or do not want to medically transition, in short take hormones and get gender reassignment surgery. And some of the mental illness stigma about trans* people.
Ed: This week our guest writer is Flick, They are an arts and politics student with a strong grounding in feminism, socialism and Judeo-Christian faiths. This week we invited Flick to talk about an issue within the spheres of feminism and trans* issues, they chose the topic of transgender pornography, in particular “shemale porn”.
