  1. I find this interesting…. As a Soldier I have watched our military wrestle with the opportunities and challenges related to transgender issues. I think you have hit on a very important facet that needs to be considered. With the concept of “Soldier for Life” governing our policies, I consider it a very significant conversation for those who fund the military to consider issues that might increase the likelihood of needing increased mental health and medical care for the decades that remain after military service. Serving in a combat zone, or even dealing with the day to day stress of facing such an eventuality, already creates a need for many to receive lifelong care. Perhaps our society needs to fully integrate the transgender population before the military takes on the challenge.

  2. I found it very interesting your article, I hope that the government stop blocking help for young people, I’m a mature Latino transgender woman, living in the backbay(most of residents are rich, white, conservative and the pour residents are 2× worsted) this is terrible for me, I’m a low income with housing voucher, so property manager had the power to make strategies against me, m aintnance guys just stolen my savings that I was saving in my closet(police ask me for evidence, like recorder them on a secure camera, internet is expensive for me) also I ‘ve to deal with stigma, hate, jealousy,racism,gender discrimination) I do ‘ve a formal complaint with MCAD, the housing investigator it’s super transphobic, so probably my only logical option could be suicide…I hope everything goes well with this younger generation, keep educate them self and given them support by them self and enjoy life! We don’t do anything bad to no body, we are just looking for happines!
