State Department spokesman Ned Price said in a statement that all passport applicants will be able to choose to identify as “X” rather than “F” or “M,” for “female” or “male,” once the department completes the required “system and form updates” early next yearNo, there is no dignity in this.
“I want to reiterate, on the occasion of this passport issuance, the Department of State’s commitment to promoting the freedom, dignity, and equality of all people — including LGBTQI+ persons,” Price added.
The State Department’s denial of Zzyym’s passport prevented them from being able to go to two Organization Intersex International meetings.Really? Those meetings discriminate against those labeled as M or F?

Is a lesbian transphobic if she does not want to have sex with trans women? Some lesbians say they are increasingly being pressured and coerced into accepting trans women as partners - then shunned and even threatened for speaking out. Several have spoken to the BBC, along with trans women who are concerned about the issue too. ...Apparently trans people get rejected by both heterosexuals and homosexuals.

"I was too young to argue and had been brainwashed by queer theory so [they were] a 'woman' even if every fibre of my being was screaming throughout so I agreed to go home with [them]. [They] used physical force when I changed my mind upon seeing [their] penis and raped me."
While welcomed by some in the LGBT community, Angela's report was described as transphobic by others. ...
