I Want More - A New Year's Blog For Suddenly Fem by CiCi Kytten
My wish for 2015 is pretty simple. I want more.
MORE acceptance and understanding of trans people from the world at large.
MORE acceptance and understanding of the many colors and variations of the trans experience WITHIN our community.
MORE love of trans children and teens from their families.
MORE understanding of trans spouses from our husbands, wives and partners.
MORE protection under the law.
MORE follow-up by law enforcement
MORE positive portrayals of trans people in the media.
MORE outreach and support to trans people in nations around the world.
MORE schools and teachers standing up to bullies.
MORE celebration of gender-free personal expression.
MORE attendance at political trans events.
MORE closet doors opening.
MORE employment ceilings shattering.
MORE freedom to be me. MORE freedom to be you. MORE strength and courage when we need it to achieve that freedom.
MORE compassion on the part of trans people as we educate and inform our families, loved ones, and communities about our needs, our passions and our dreams.
MORE happy, fulfilled trans people simply going about our lives with our families and our careers.
MORE days without the death of a trans person.. without the break-up of a family... without the shaming of a child... due to ignorance, prejudice and hate.
I’m a realist. I know that as individuals, we can’t do everything on this list. We can't contribute to every cause. We'd be overwhelmed. Burned out. Exhausted. I understand that. And yet at the same time, I know in my heart, we can all do MORE.
And that’s my wish for 2015.
Happy New Year, everyone!
Be safe. Be smart. Be sexy.
