Thanks for posting this. It's nice to see that the current generation will not go through the hell that I have had to deal with.

A commentator named Ike Aruti has made a populist issue out of a foster care system in NYC providing coverage for SRS for a young trans woman:

He gives it as an example of corruption.

I am sick and tired of this populism, this malicious populism, which is so often played up against the trans community and the issues we care about. I'm tired of self-important blowhards positing our community's interests and needs as diametrically opposed to those of the greater community.
