Re: “Conservative group demands emails of UNC official after he criticizes Gov. McCrory in newspaper column

I worked for the state (as part of a university IT division) years ago and applied a simple rule for myself - anything that wasn't very strictly work related was done through my personal e-mail.

Also, when the stipend was offered for personal mobile phones (because they ceased providing and paying for mobiles assigned to individual, particularly those whose duties included off-hours on-call) I declined it because a requirement of receiving it was that my personal mobile records became public record.

Re: “How beauty pageants view transwomen

Oh do I ever know those stares. I try hard to own my passing-as-cis privilege for exactly that reason - my life is much easier because of it.

Re: “Why a sex change is not extraordinary

If I had to guess I'd say that each person who experiences transition does so in an at least slightly different way.

I definitely sympathize about treatment by medical providers. I've experienced this, even when my transition was the reason for the appointments, i.e. physicians who, one might expect, would have some knowledge of how to not other and dehumanize us.

Even knowing that this is unlikely to abate in my lifetime, I do not regret my transition. It remains the best decision I have ever made.
