I don’t know if I’ve told you all this before, but when I ended up in hospital after my having a massive anxiety attack. For myself, I put it down too the “real stuff” that set my brain off. The “new age” stuff helped my brain calm down again.
I couldn’t get through my anxiety without either. The “real” or the “new age” ‘stuff’.
So when I hear my own father say that the new age stuff failed me, you don’t know me. You wouldn’t say too me if you knew what I’ve been through.
I was thinking about how some people out there, mainly your Conservative Christians or Conservative Religious people. How one of their complaints about trans people is that “God didn’t make a mistake, so stop trying to change your sex”. Now as we all know trans gender people know they can’t actually change sex. (Although with Science this is not actually that far off).
Whose saying though that God made a “mistake”? Apparently God doesn’t make mistakes? And who are they to question whether or not God made a mistake?
The same people who say to others to stop changing their bodies, because God doesn’t make mistakes. Are also the same people who:
Want surgeries done on intersex infants
Bleach their hair, change their hair
Straighten their teeth
By glasses and contact lenses
Don’t stop (and sometimes get some themselves) people from cosmetic surgeries.
I wish sometimes that when someone tries or makes one or a step towards a better world, people could just be grateful (*insert long sigh here*)…Just because someone doesn’t do all or find a total solution, right away. This doesn’t mean it makes it okay to degrade what they have done. Too make people aware is a good first step.
Do they have a “total solution”? No.
Are they now aware of the issue? Yes
