This is what I mean by erasure

This is one of the most upsetting and triggering things I have ever read. It is one of the reasons why I put in time I have not got on a committee dealing with institutional transphobia in acute care; it is why so many of the trans people you, gentle cis reader, know get so angry about misgendering.

It is a very specific example of how there are forces in our society that want those of us who are LGBT or just difficult to go away, to be disappeared, to never have been.
