The Transgender Violence Tracking Portal is an attempt to collect data on anti-trans* violence in order to protect the transgender community in real time and help us be better-informed advocates for change.
Not mentioned in this clip is the motivation many MTF's have pre transition for joining the military. There is a need to hyper masculinize there lives and many feel that by joining the military they can rid themselves of there female selves.
The truth is that can not be made to happen by joining any organization so eventually they will have to do as I did have, and face up to there transsexualism. Currently, being in the military only makes that harder since the difference between LBG and T has become better understood.
Converse for me, when I served before the word transgender was spoken by anyone I was seen as simply gay and accepted for that. Weird, huh
