On her blog "can I help you sir?", G talked about doctor visits and how she tries to avoid them because of the reactions she experiences while there. I can relate to every thing she talks about in this post. Those reasons are why I've been taking my time finding a doctor through my newly gained health insurance. Honestly, it's more like dragging my feet. Doctor visits have always been a horrible experience for me.
Then, over on Patriarchy Party Crasher bee listy ranted a bit about feminists who are transphobic. Yes, the gap between the Butch community and the trans community is still there and, as I talked about in my post, Thoughts On Our Butch & Transgender Community, we need to stop tearing each other apart and focus that energy on coming together to move forward.
Today I am grateful for the blogging community, the dialog it creates and for simply knowing there are others out there who think and experience things the way I do. Sometimes it really helps to not feel so alone.
