a familiar story

as any readers of my blog know, the process of zion becoming ziona was very similar…without the public school experiences… please enjoy reading this family’s story…

and don’t forget to watch on june 30th!

the more that people understand our transgender kids, the easier their childhoods and journey to adulthood will be…and kids that aren’t traumatised make for healthier grown-ups!

into the deep end

it’s been a while since i’ve written in my blog…mostly because everything is going relatively smoothly in our lives..ziona and i have been doing our homeschool lessons and other things we like to do. we added japanese to our curriculum this year and more drawing, per her request.  she has tested out of 6th grade and we are all ready for the upcoming 7th grade lesson plan, having bought the necessary materials and researched what sorts of extra-curricular options we’ll consider.

we haven’t yet taken our trip out to california for her appointment at the child and adolescent gender clinic at ucsf with her ‘transition team’.  the vantas puberty blocker that she had implanted into her arm last year is still suppressing male puberty, but it is going to have to be replaced, probably later in the year.  but it may not be quite time to have it replaced by september when our next scheduled visit with her team is supposed to take place.

so i have gone online, to every resource of which i have knowledge to try to find a closer option for a pediatric endocrinologist that will consider being a more local part of ‘the team’.  already ziona’s primary care provider is part of the away team…ordering the tests that the ucsf pediatric endocrinologist orders.  but because of  it being a specialised branch of medicine, the pediatrician doesn’t feel comfortable with seeing to certain aspects of ziona’s needs.  including prescribing hormones or implanting the puberty blocker.

if i can find a local pediatric endocrinologist i can wrangle ziona’s medicaid into helping to pay for this as well…which would be a big help, as i am on a very fixed, very low income.  i haven’t found an endocrinology practice that mentions being okay with transgender treatments for minors anywhere in the whole state of florida! none!

so this is me, getting ready to dive into the deep end of the pool.  i am going to try to convince a local pediatric endocrinologist to become a part of the san francisco team…long distance…in the same way that the primary care physician does.  by being in touch with the very highly esteemed ucsf program to provide the hormones and/or puberty blockers that are necessary to my daughter’s well-being.

so wish me luck, readers! and if by chance anyone out there knows of a doctor in florida that already provides such a thing as pediatric endocrinology for transgender minors.  please comment below!

Anonymous forum poster delivers Knock Out Punch to Christian extremists knocking Caitlyn Jenner

great anonymous reply to a hater regarding the recent revelation of Caitlyn Jenner…

this response is spot on! more of this, please!

LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS

christians huckabee jennerLEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — To no one’s surprise, Christian extremists took to the airwaves and internet with the usual vile and hatred following Caitlyn Jenner’s coming out.

By happenstance, forwarded to me today was a response from an anonymous forum member in reply to a vile statement about Caitlyn posted earlier in the day by another member. In my opinion, this person’s reply is likely among the all-time great rebuttals to those who hate in the name of Christ. Amazingly spot-on with writing skills most writers dream of having, I was both impressed and entertained!

I’m reproducing the conversation here. I’ve changed usernames and made a few edits. The forum is neither religious or LGBT orientated, nor is it a news site’s “comments section.” Just ordinary people discussing matters of varying topics.
