Well, as reported earlier today on this blog, the American Psychiatric Association has announced their intentions to declassify Gender Dysphoria (AKA transsexualism/transgenderism) as a mental illness. They have also announced their intentions to disassociate it from fetishism. They have also announced their intentions to include a 'specifier' that indicates that patients who have transitioned will recognize a state of permanent remission.
With this in mind, I have decided that it is in my best interest, and in the best interest of the trans community, that I no longer refer to myself as a transsexual. Instead, I will use the terms 'post-transitioned' and 'woman born transsexual', as I see no reason to hold onto a label that does not accurately reflect my status, in the eyes of global industry leaders. As Jenna Talackova once said: I am a woman with a history.
This doesn't necessarily mean the end of my advocacy work, but it does mean that I will be tackling it from a different perspective, and that my primary focus will be on action that will serve the best interests of the post-transitioned.
