My wellness as a trans woman hinges on my ability to access competent care and have agency within the care that I access. But the systems around me demand that I reveal private information. I need letters from experts (listed above), written on my behalf, to say who and what I am, so I can pass through Customs undetected as the anomaly that I am. “There’s a tax on trans women to be part of the women’s club,” Goldman said.

Accessing care. Seek care based on your biology “The body parts you have need to be monitored for disease processes,” Safer advised. For example, even if you’ve had vaginoplasty, you still have a prostate. “Your doctor needs to know that.” Get health insurance and use it.

Focusing on the Unique Health Care Needs of Transgender Individuals.

The analysis of qualitative interview data identified one facilitating factor (health care provider’s role and relationship) and three inhibiting factors (availability of transgender-competent care, distress about seeking sexual health care, and characteristics of the health care setting) regarding use of sexual health care services in general. Pumping is often turned to when licensed medicine isn’t accessible — typically because of a combination of social, financial and discriminatory barriers in health care. If a woman doesn’t pass as.

  • The receptionist (lowest paid) is a white woman, the aid is an Asian man, and the two at the top are black women. Isn’t it unlawful to purposely discriminate on the basis of sex and race when choosing the doctor, nurse, and aid on the basis of those characteristics? Lol.

  • Why wouldn’t he talk to the tech? Joe seems like an asshole. Tech’s don’t get paid enough for people to blow them off and pretend like they aren’t health care professionals just like a doctor or nurse.

  • I’m calling you by your given name until you’ve changed it legally. And i will not address you as Mister or he…why? Because words have meaning. Biology does not lie (you’re born what you are), so why are we (as a society) playing a game of pretense? Gender dysphoria (noun): the condition of feeling one’s emotional and psychological identity as male or female to be opposite to one’s biological sex. Feeling lie, we all know this so why are we ALL forced to deny language as well as science? I’m not doing it, sorry. The conflict is an internal one…that’s personal. Lets treat it as such and stop playing games

  • Why apologize, it’s hard to keep up to all these new genders coming out, dont know whos who or who’s what. A what ever…….

    Little house on a prairie is very very normal now..

  • I am saying this as somebody that fully supports the trans/non-binary community: The “lessons” in this anecdote are unrealistic and offensive. Medical offices these days DO grill everyone about their current insurance coverage, addresses, ID, etc. (to ensure proper billing and, more importantly, to avoid mistaken patient identities), and it is unrealistic/irresponsible to expect the medical professionals to make assumptions about everything, just by repeating “I am Joe” and “call me Joe,” trans/non-binary or otherwise. If you prefer a female provider, that’s on you as a patient to indicate so—trans/non-binary or otherwise—and you should not expect others to make that judgment for you because that is your personal choice/preference. In fact, some trans/non-binary individuals DO prefer male providers, which takes us to the point about this lesson being offensive. It is offensive to me because, according to this anecdote, we are to make a wide range of stereotypic assumptions and generalizations about the trans/non-binary community, as though gender dysphoria is one simple category (e.g., trans/non-binary patients all prefer female providers and we should all know that).

  • You are offended when a stranger calls you by your legal name. You are offended when staff want to examine you. Busy professionals need to change the protocols that every other person complies with. How about you suck it up and act like adults.

  • Google edits and censors everything I say that’s conservative and Christian. Only allowing the liberal democrats post to remain.

  • I feel like this is def a situation that takes both parties. The patient needs to understand that at a first visit explanations will be necessary as they form a relationship with their provider. With how paperwork it currently they do need to pick their biological sex so they can get the best care possible. Due to sex specific diseases and treatments/exams. A provider needs to make notes for future visits and immediately respect all their wishes using what they asked and learned. Making sure they are as comfortable as possible to get the best care.
