That all can still be well

We know more about trans people today than even 5 years ago and people are starting to know of at least one trans person in their personal lives which means there will be less tendency to demonize. It is when we get to know people up close that we appreciate their humanity for much of the world operates on caricatures, abstractions and misinformation.

Of course it doesn't help trans folk when you are dismissive of yourself reinforced only more by the chorus all around you.

I feel most for those who are rejected by family, live in poverty and are double saddled with racism plus being trans. The latter contrasting sharply with the problems of affluent middle class white cisgender people who sit at the top of the societal pyramid.

The world is deeply flawed and yet also blessed with rich souls who give us morsels of hope that all can still be well.
