But let’s talk about precarity

Nancy Kelley urges us to read…Chase Strangio. Really?

Strangio’s “brilliant and devastating thread” is unhinged.

“bills to make trans survival harder…banning health care for minors…That we should not get health care. That we should not survive.”

Unhinged…and dishonest. Strangio is talking about surgeries and puberty blockers to change the physical manifestations of a person’s sex, which is not health care but something else, which doesn’t really have a name yet. It’s medical tweaking to try to swap “gender,” and has nothing to do with physical health at all. Psychological or emotional health maybe (but the trouble is it could be bad for mental health, especially long term, instead of good for it), but not physical. The bills are not efforts to make trans people not survive.
